Have a woman you trust smell the cologne on you. Have her smell it right after you put it on (one spray on each side of the neck) and again a few hours later. If on a budget, a good one to try is Preferred Stock. Most times I use only soap and water. Don't use scented aftershave. Use an unscientific lotion or balm.

Burberry Brit for Men. It starts out with a nice sharp citrus note, bergamot, mandarin, cardamom, then settles into a gorgeous woodsy tobacco like spicey warmth. It doesn't have that sharp sage and lavender aroma that so many mens fragrances have. Watch it, though, your girl may steal it from you

I really enjoy "light" scents, but I'm willing to hear suggestions. All opinions are welcome, but being that I'm a guy the female opinion helps a lot haha.

I'm just looking for suggestions on what you personally like to smell and why(if you're a female) or if you're a guy, what you like wearing and why.

I was told Armani Code smells nice, any opinions on that?

Suggestions please! Thanks!!
Get Drakkar Noir...i've used it since the 80s and it is still the best cologne out there...hands down!

Don't use any fragrance. It covers up your own natural pheromones which attract the opposite sex. Plus chemical fragrances are made up of toxic chemicals that cause migraines, asthma attacks and other serious negative effects in a growing number of people.

Most people will not tell you to your face that your fragrance bothers them. (That goes for scented products such as deodorant. Axe is the worst!!!) They will just try to avoid any close contact with you, leaving you to wonder why.

La Coste made certain girls want to rip my clothes off. Seriously.

I wear none now.

OUCH !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Provide this as an advertizing idea to Kenneth Cole perfumes with a catchy slogan, and you could become rich .

It's that secret ingredient they put in it ... Eau de Hedgehog.

Love Blue Water.
I like "blue-green" scents, as opposed to woodsy or musky or spicy.

Lalique Pour Homme
Chanel Pour Monsieur

Both of these smell fresh, sophisticated and manly. Very sexy.
