Kenneth Cole's signature Black cologne. To die for. It's slightly woody, with slight hints of leather and musk...it's by far my fave scent to smell on a man.

My DH used to wear Aqua di Gio. He now wears either Armani Emporio (it's a black box and bottle) or Best of Chevignon.

The fashion designer Geoffrey Beene moved on to that great runway in the sky nearly a decade ago, but his men's fragrance Grey Flannel lives on. I once dated a guy who wore it and I can attest that it had quite an effect on my libido. It wasn't just the guy. When he wasn't wearing it, he wasn't nearly as attractive to me. Fragrances don't smell the same on every person, so I'm not guaranteeing any specific results. But if you're interested in provoking a reaction from a female. you might at least give Grey Flannel a try. It will always be in my Boyfriend Hall of Fame.

And sleep in it. If it stinks in the morning, you don't want it. It will stink when you're under stress even quicker.

when I wear cologne, which is not too often, I use "Kush" oil, you get it in those "oil" shops....I don't know what you call them, but they have all different scents. "Kush" is strong, don't need to much.

Hey, it works and retains fragrance for a long time. Its actually quite popular in many places. He was a Spanish fashion designer, not Jewish.

Blue Water by Davidoff is a nice one, and comes off quite a bit less "Rico Suave" than some of the other suggestions given.

+1. In "Perfumes: The Guide" Luca Turin writes of Grey Flannel: "All in all, and despite the fact that GF can occasionally feel a little crude, a masterpiece." Another one which shares Grey Flannel's violet leaf note is Creed Green Irish Tweed, which (at least a few years ago) is popular with a lot of younger guys who are into fragrances. Of it, Turin says: "Brilliant, legible, perfectly balanced, immediately recognizable."

Gobucks85, as you investigate fragrances for yourself, I'd suggest using the forums at Basenotes.net and Fragrantica.com as a resource. Badger & Blade is also a good resource. I typically research frags before I buy by trying them … you can try your local department stores, but what I like to do is order decants from The Perfumed Court, Surrender to Chance, and Luckyscents to try them. They have small sample sized decants.

Since you like lighter scents, you might check out Cartier's Declaration, which has a cardamom-juniper fragrance that's been copied by a lot of other perfumes. Unfortunately, cardamom, nutmeg, rose, and lavender are notes that don't agree with me. Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille is nice for the cooler weather.

You might also try out the fragrances by Comme des Garcons, which develops fragrances for the younger perfumista. Also, Slumberhouse whose fragrances have a sort of rich hipster vibe to them.

I can't tell you what fragrances have been "successful" for me with the opposite sex … I wear fragrance for myself, and for the memories & moods they evoke, not for anyone else. And I'm 66, so my tastes likely have little overlap with yours.

My signature scents? Probably Guerlain Derby in the cold months (spicy clove-pepper-woods but very expensive), and Guerlain Vetiver in the warmer months (rooty, peppery-clean, citrusy, not so expensive). You might like Vetiver, it's not a heavy scent and you won't smell like every other 27 year old guy when you go out to the clubs.

^^ I am going to get a sample of this.


OP - I love Armani Code. Especially for winter. One I love almost as equally as much is Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Male
