never heard of clive christian however I definitely don't want to smell like lavender and sage... I just wear the classic D&G... Do you want to know what brand of nail polish I use too? (since you asked -> O.P.I.)

Completely agree. I wear Dolce & Gabanna cologne and it works out great.

Gucci (Man?) by Gucci. It's in a black bottle, silver cap. Pretty strong, but very good for a night out.

D&G The One. A bit less strong than the Gucci, reminds me of tobacco, leather and prefteej. I usually wear it to more formal occasions.

One Million by Paco Rabanne. Lighter than the rest, some fruity notes. Usually my daily spray-n-go cologne, tends to draw quite a few compliments.

They'll all run you roughly $60-$80 a pop.

I'd recommend you just go to Macy's, Sephora, etc and spend some time at the cologne counter.

Protip: Ask for coffee beans and sniff them often. Otherwise, your nose will be overpowered after 2-3 different scents.

Wear something light.

The best thing for you is to keep good hygiene habits. Having no smell is better than having some smell, even if it smells good to some. The thing you've got to understand is that, not all people consider a certain cologne as a good smell. So your best bet is to have no smell at all.

It is not about the title that you have, it is about how much money that you have.

Hermes baby! Smells like flowery sandalwood and it is not the most common scent so it's a little intriguing. Think it is like $80 a go

Honestly, if you have a good girl friend take her with you to Saks. It's really how each cologne mixes with your body. You can't try them all on but find a few you really like and see if they work on you. I know a lot of guys who don't wear any and it works for them. They smell sexy without it.

None, let the shower do the talkin (but you should probably wear some deodorant too, just in case, i don't know, you sweat ever)

konig, what's your opinion? Comment below:

The most common mistake people make is buying cologne that is not suitable for the season. There are fragrances that are more suitable for fall/winter weather and others that are more suitable for spring/summer weather. If you work in a warm climate, I recommend wearing the spring/summer fragrances while wearing a fall/winter fragrance every once in a while to mix it up. I also recommend using AMAZON to purchase cologne, it is much, much cheaper.

Recommendations for fall/winter fragrances usually have some sort of deep wood smell, cardamom, or cinnamon in them; Hermes (Terre D'Hermes), Tom Ford (Oud Wood, Arabic Wood), Dupont (Noir), Salvatore Ferragamo (Incanto)

Recommendations for spring/summer fragrances usually have some bright, colorful smell, usually citrus-y and light; Lacoste (the Red one is excellent), Ralph Lauren (the Red color, #2 I think, is excellent), Paco Robanne (1 Million), Montblanc (Individuel is good)

This. I wear Wall Street by Victor in the Fall & Winter (http://www.basenotes.net/ID26121686.html) its a pretty distinguished retro scent that is definitely more formal than casual.

I actually just stick with A&F Fierce in the Spring & Summer...on the rare occasion something formal comes up I'll reach for the Bleue by Issey Miyake (http://www.basenotes.net/ID26123450.html).

I also second konig's amazon suggestion, I buy all my stuff via ebay and have never paid more than $50 for a bottle. In fact, I have made nearly $2000 selling cologne on that same website.

I have a ton but it basically goes like this: Winter- Hanae Mori, John Varvatos Spring- Creed Royal Oud, Versace Man Summer- Kiton, Creed Aventus Fall-Hermes, Burberry Brit.... Probably my absolute favorite is Aventus, although it's a tad pricey.

I only started wearing cologne when I got an electric razor and thus stopped using aftershave though. If you shave with a blade just get some nice sandalwood aftershave, soothing and smells good.

Aqua di gio is great - I've gotten a lot of compliments wearing it. But a lot of people definitely wear this... anything Salvatore Ferragamo is good

I bought my boyfriend this cologne for his birthday and it smells exactly like Creed-Aventus! Jordan Belfort fragrance is half the price of Creed Aventus, long lasting and smells truly amazing! I would 100% recommend this cologne to anyone.

Thank God someone brought this thread back from the dead. If any of you are interested in starting to wear perfumes, check out the Basenote forums. They have pretty much anything perfume related. Not an advertisement, but just mentioning for the few users who are looking to learn more about the perfume/fragrance industry.

I like Creed's Aventus, but runner ups would probably be Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille, Oud Wood, Neroli portofino. YSL's la nuit de l'homme is okay, but I find myself reaching for Aventus more often. It has gotten very popular in the past few years. Did you know Aventus was created for Napoleon?

What do you smell like? (Originally Posted: 05/10/2011)

I realize this is a bit of a stretch since this forum is about fashion and for some that doesn't necessarily imply cologne/perfume, but alas, I would like to know what scent everyone is rocking to the office?

Now that I have my wardrobe all squared away, I really want to smell like a banker. J/K, I am currently at the tail end of my cologne and was looking for some suggestions as to which ones I should check out the next time I'm out and about. I currently wear Armani Code.

You??
