I know this is a matter of opinion, but I've been wearing Acqua Di Gio by Armani for two years now and I'm looking for something different. I like it, but I feel it's a very college-age cologne. I'm 27 now and have a career going, so I'm looking for a bit of an upgrade.

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!!

Paco Rabbane is quite powerful in retaining scent. That's what I use.

Versace Dreamer. Old school but a classic. The trick is what smells good on you. Go into a store like Macy's and there is usually a female working the cologne section.

Paco Rabbane sounds like a jewish taco. No offense. Give me a Paco Rabbane extra pickles.

Every body chemistry reacts differently to a cologne. You have to bite the bullet and try several. Not all at one time:>)

Well that's what I plan on doing, but I want to get a feel on here of which I should be looking into.

I like the Ralph Lauren cologne, the one that comes in the green bottle.

Try Romance by Ralph Lauren. I like Polo, too.

I used to buy Pierre Cardin for whomever I was dating because I loved the scent. Not expensive either.

Paul Sebastian in small doses is also nice, as is Calvin Klein Obsession for Men, if they still make it.

None, nice soap smell, mixed with clean, manly FAINT, sweat is far better than cologne.

That being said, old fashioned Polo is my fav. Used very, very sparingly.
