    So what are your guy's favorite colognes? I own like 60 different colognes and the top three have got to be;

    Versace Pour Homme

    Gucci Pour Homme 2

    and Fierce by Abercrombie and Fitch

    I kind of like the smell of Fierce, but overall I'm not very big into cologne since it bothers me, and I always keep it low in case it bothers others.

    Scents-wise, I love the smell of plain sandalwood. It has to be mixed with a neutral base before you wear it but it is a very nice, clean, masculine smell.

    Givenchi Pi and Dolce Gabana The One are nice smells. The are a tad sweet smelling, which I like, but not too much.

    Curve

    First time I wore it, some Latina came up to me and sniffed me and told me how good I smelled. X number of years later, I don't know how many times I've been told I smell good. Usually some kind of hug is involved :D

    Hugo Boss is my absolute favourite. I love it. Only use it for special occasions though.

    Light, fruity. I used to wear this one when I visited the girlfriend at university. Date cologne.

    Day to day stuff. Can't fault it, just I find it pretty basic.

    Dolce & Gabbana - The One (this is my day to day stuff during the winter)

    YSL - L'Homme (I alternate this with the D&G above for day to day wear during the fall and winte)
    t_24500.jpg
    Polo - Double Black (I use this when going out to dinner or for "fancier" occasions, I find it too overpowering for day to day wear but it's nice occasionally)

    Bulgari (aka BVLGARI) - Aqva (this is my day to day stuff in the spring and summer, it's not as powerful as my winter wear which would cause people to be gassed if worn in the summer)

    Ermenegildo Zenga - Colonia (this is my "fancy" stuff for summer. It's only used for special occasions during the spring and summer.)

    @Sam Yikin - The fact that I wear cologne, does not make me a douchebag. Someone who wears Axe or the like is a douchbag though, and cheap to boot. Now I will agree, someone who bathes themselves in cologne is a douchebag, I've met those people and I hate them; walking through the halls of a high school it's like being in a vat of Fierce (I hate that crap).

    I don't use cologne, every type I've tried makes me break out in a rash.

    This is my every day stuff year round. Absolutely phenomenal product. If you don't know what it smells like, I recommend you go to a dept store and try it out.

    I've got 3 depending on what the occasion is:

    1. My "every day" at home stuff is "Essential" by Lacoste.

    2. My "at work" smell that I wear to work is "Black Code" by Armani.

    3. My "going out" for special occasions is "London for Men" by Burberry.

    However, the other month I was in A&F and picked up some of their "Fierce" cologne cause I couldn't get the smell out of my nose. I ran out of all 3 soon after so it was a good thing I did. However, I've noticed some things about it, chiefly, that it's targeted for women. If I wear it, very few guys can ever pick up the smell of it. Yet, women constantly comment on it. It makes me wonder if it's been tailored to female-only scent receptors.

    Agreed, absolutely wonderful cologne. I'll be unimaginably pissed if the ever discontinue it. I wish I could wear it all year, but I just find that it is really underwhelming in the colder months. Everyone else has something stronger on in the fall/winter, so I'm forced to switch in order to compete for cologne compliments, lol.

    I used to use Euphoria a lot, but it seemed like everyone started using it shortly thereafter. I just ended up blending in with other people, which kind of defeats the purpose of cologne in my opinion. It is a good scent, although it has become a close second (in terms of usage) to Abercrombie and Fitch Fierce in a high school setting, which is also a factor that ruined it for me.

    I will be sitting in the no-perfume section of the restaurant. The stuff gives me a headache.
