I don't know about men, but ladies have to " fit" a perfume, with our own chemistry... some expensive stuff out there stinks on me, and some are great and last all day and stop people...to compliment

my wife typically will just give me a bunch of samples - I don't wear cologne much and usually there are a couple that work really well .... every now and then I'll buy a full bottle

currently ones that I really like are Lacoste, Chanel Blue and Versace Pour Homme

Gaultier Fleur du Male....yes it's flowery. Women love it. For something more "masculine" Bulgari Homme.

Same here - I guy I dated in the 70s wore it and I loved it. They must still make it because I smelled it on someone fairly recently. Now I don't like it because it brings back bad memories, but it's not the cologne's fault!

I'm quite surprised at the love expressed for Grey Flannel - it is probably the worst smell I have ever experienced in male colognes. There must be something in it that causes a bad reaction for me, because i can't even breathe around Grey Flannel.

The next worst scent on a man is patchouli/musk - gaaaaahk. Don't do it!

Suggestions have already been made to find out what works with your body chemistry - this is very true. Don't ask the sales girl at Macy's, take a female friend you trust and have them help you pick a scent. If you have a partner then that would be the ideal person to take cologne-shopping.

I was given a very expensive cologne one time. I loved it. On vacation, casual clothing, when given to me. Wore it for a few weeks. Back off vacation and it started smelling funny after I had it on for a while like mid-day. The only sense I could make out of it was the cologne smelled different when I was wearing suites, which I wore everyday, that had been dry cleaned. Strange but for some reason the cologne and dry cleaning did not mix. I know. Call me crazy...LOL

My wife would put on presume and asked me how I liked it. I use to say good, bad or indifferent but if I liked it I would say let me smell again later in the day. The scent changed. I believe the same thing goes for men's cologne.


If you can be smelled when you walk into a room, change it. It is to strong.
