Thread: The cologne thread

    The cologne thread

    I will be buying a new fragrance soon. I am sure you guys have some mean collections.

    What have been your time tested classic fragrances?

    I am tempted to go for Aventus by Creed. It's expensive but have heard too many good reviews of it.

    Old Spice Classic

    http://www.oldspice.com/en-US/produc...logne-classic/

    "Old Spice Cologne has been around for generations. If your grandfather hadn’t worn it, you wouldn’t exist. Neither would velvet paintings, the chili dog and sheepskin rugs -- manly things that were made by men who smelled strong and splashed Old Spice cologne on their faces before doing other manly stuff during their day."

    if you can get the original, it's worth it otherwise, there's better scent out there. if you don't mind, get some tester size which you can get online. about $30 for a 5-8ml and you'll have the original and much better aventus scent

    dreamer from versace is great. about $40 for a 50ml. any smoker will love the scent. tested and approved for years

    dior homme is another great one too. perfect for date nights and/or intimate moments

    When I wear a cologne or an eau de toilette I want to be distinctive. I hate to wear a cologne that you can smell on almost every men you meet on the street.

    For example, when I'm in Brazil I habitually wear British cologne (for example some Burberry colognes or my favorite one: Bois du Portugal by Creed.

    On the other hand, while I'm in Montréal I always sport Brazilian colognes: my favorite ones are: Zaad, Malbec Absoluto (yes, made with wine) and Coffee all from O Boticario. They are not too expensive and they smell very masculine

    Malbec: http://www.boticario.com.br/Malbec-D...-100ml-07936/p
    Zaad: http://www.boticario.com.br/Zaad-Eau...m-95ml-09685/p
    Coffee: http://www.boticario.com.br/Coffee-M...-100ml-20600/p

    I have a feeling I'm gonna catch a few snarky comments for this one, but I'm a fan of cool water by Davidoff and always have been. Definitely not musky but suits me.

    I agree if you can't add a little manly fragrance to the situation.

    Always been an Acqua di Gio fan... looking to expand my collection. Stuff i have sampled and enjoyed...

    Dior Homme
    YSL Nuit de l'Homme
    D&G Light Blue
    Mont Blanc Legend
    Chanel Allure

    Going to try Armani Code and Dior Sauvage...
    looking for Acqua di Parma or Creed somewhere in Montreal but hard to find anywhere that will give you testers.

    What do you guys think? More importantly, what do you ladies like?

    :-)
    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

    The only two that I use and always get complement's...http://france.hermes.com/parfums/hom...-d-hermes.html

    https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/...Homme-137.html

    Both available at La Baie downtown. Sample available for hermes.

    These are not loud perfumes, no one will know that you have entered the room. Nice in close range.
