Cologne?
 
I need to buy some new cologne and I want something different. Not looking to break the bank, but I figured I would come to the expertise of the numerous men on here to give some suggestions. I was always a Curve guy so it is time to switch it up!

The $50+ you have to spend on a bottle of cologne is definitely worth it. My personal favorite right now is Chanel Allure Sport. I would also suggest avoiding Aqua di Gio as way way way too many people own it. Bottles that I own:

Chanel Allure Sport
Chanel Allure Edition Blanche
B*Men by Thierry Mugler
Ice*Men by Thierry Mugler
Ferrari Passion
L'Eau Bleue d'Issey
Bulgari Aqua
Versace Blue Jeans
Joop Jump
Azzaro Chrome

clinique happy for men. i am not f'ing with you when i say chicks love it.

If you're gonna buy cologne, just get the rip offs at Chinatown. It's the same exact cologne for 1/4th the price.

Why drop 50 bucks on a bottle when you can spend 5 for the same exact fragrance?

+1

Granted I'm a smoker so I usually don't smell like my cologne even when I do opt to rock it.

my 2 favorite, and I only wear them on special occasions or if my shirt had a weird smell for being in my closet or drawers for to long.

Polo Blue
jean paul gaultier Le Male, there are variations to it, but the best one is the one in a blue bottle with white stripes.

both are not strong and last throughout the day. Also its not overpowering, so when girls walk by they get a slight hint of it, and have to get closer to you to get a better wiff. This is very true for Jean Paul.

Both bottles are 60-45 dollars, for a decent size bottle, like 2 or 3 oz bottle.

Currently I have Polo Blue, Tommy, and Drakkar Noir. I like them all.

I have some Armani Code stuff I got for Christmas last year and I like it a lot.

Ralph Lauren Polo Black is what I have right now, my girlfriend loves it.

Abercrombie & Fitch clothes are way overpriced, but I quite like their cologne. Cologne 41 is what I was using before the Polo Black.

Is that an old person musk? Haha


Thanks for the suggestions, keep them coming! Going to make a list and check then all out. No Chinatown here, so I guess I am stuck?

Go to Shoppers and ask to buy the testers. Odds are they are going to be full and you can get them for much cheaper then if you buy them new.

Cologne is the reason I'm not allowed in Sears stores anymore

Tell the story.

I like Drakkar. It became so popular that it has become uncool to buy/wear it, but I don't care. It smells good. I like cool water too.

Mr. Goosemahn 10-12-2010 02:52 PM

I get colognes twice a year from people who don't know what to give me as a gift on Christmas or my birthday (mainly my grandparents lol), so I've had my fair share of experience with them, and if I had to suggest one, it would be Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier. It's more of a sweet smelling cologne (smells kind of like vanilla, nothing fruity or berry-smelling), but I really like the scent and just like other scents, the girls really like it :).

Also, the smell is kind of strong, so you don't need to wear a lot of it, which in turn makes it last longer.

The bottle's shape is the torso of a man, and it's apparently a top rated cologne at Macy's.

Hope this helps.

Somehow that sentiment coming from you doesn't surprise me at all.

Stale cigarette and pot smoke is my cologne.

brat316 10-12-2010 03:10 PM

Aqua De Gio that is another one that is good. I don't own it, but smells good and plenty of people say good things about it. Check it out.

aLARGEtopHat 10-12-2010 03:14 PM

Buy Abercrombie cologne. Spray at least 10-15 sprays everywhere on your body, think cologne shower. Go to movies. Pick up all the 16 year olds your heart can desire.

Effective range of cologne appears to be about 75-100ft, radius, from my adventures to the mall.

CashmoneyDrew 10-12-2010 03:17 PM

You should use this as an in to talk to fine women and see what they prefer.

Nice city, although I do like Berlin better
