But a long lasting scent.

High quality stuff.

One of those street cologne people approached me today so I think i'm gonna buy cologne now. Not from them though, from a mall.

Any suggestions?

And please describe the scent if you can.

I like Oscar! but I wouldn't know to describe it. Light, sexy, not intrusive, sweet. I think you can google this and descriptions will come up, but I'm not knowledgeable about how to describe scents.

Stella! It kinda smells like freshness soft pine and then melts into a soft clean scent.

If you want your scent to last get "perfume". Not "Eau de Parfum"

Perfume - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

^^^ go to the "concentration" section of the article. It shows the line up from strong to weak.

Fragrance.net has a mini for 2 bucks if you want to check it out.

Stella Mccartney Perfume for Women by Stella Mccartney at FragranceNet.com®

I LOVE mini's. If you let a perfume sit around the scent changes so keep it away from heat and light. Get smaller bottles if you don't just don't want minis.
That site has a whole section of minis.

For a natural one I like the LaVanilla grapefruit. It smells like vanilla grapefruit but without a sharp citrus bite.

I'm a man, i'm looking for colognes only.

Opium By Yves Saint Laurent

The Eau De Toilette Spray is more than enough of a strength to give you a long lasting scent.

It's a spicy scent that can be worn every day, and yet is still appropriate for evening wear.

( vanilla, ginger, pepper, and cedar, a fresh and lively scent with lower hints of balsam )
