I have to admit I still love Old Spice... yes, it's been around forever, but it's a great everyday cologne. For more formal events, nothing smells better than Karl Lagerfeld "Lagerfeld Classic" in the tall bottle with the ring top. It's pretty potent stuff, though, so I'd suggest spraying it in front of you and then walking through the mist. Otherwise it's just too strong.

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!!

I like Mont Blanc Legend Spirit
Bleu Chanel
Dior Sauvage

I think all 3 of those smell very sexy, sophisticated and classy.

Let me say this, a great place to try cologne is actually the dollar store. If they carry EAD cologne, buy some different ones. I have far too many myself. Today I am wearing one for Angel which is a lighter scent. Most of my cologne even if it wasn't EAD is still under $20 including Michael Jordon which is a great light scent. I found the EAD Paco Rabanne colognes for XS, $1mil and Invictus are really good as are Polo Blue and Red.

Exactly. Look at the Dollar Stores and see if you find any good ones.

It was a nice scent when he was in his 20s and it still is in his 50s.
It don't work for everyone. I've tried leathery cologne and only Stetson works for me from time to time. But as another poster said, try. It is funny you mention British Sterling, I found it on Amazon yesterday while looking at my EAD scenes to rate them.

I prefer the leathery scents and my current go-to's are:

Fahrenheit (my wife loves this)

Tom Ford Tuscan Leather (expensive but strong, so a little lasts all day).

I have a bottle of Old Spice in the back of the medicine cabinet too.

Always loved Polo green but it's overpowering. I worked in a organization that employed a bunch of H1-B workers. They all wore Polo but I called it "Bolo" because it was a combination of Polo and BO haha.

The only leather I can do is Stetson. I'm more of a light scent person. Paco Rabannes, Ed Hardy, Polo Red/Blue and Angel for me.
