I smelled some cologne in there over the weekend in a round bottle. (Proof, I think it was named.) It smelled really good and I was ready to purchase a bottle until I started wondering about the better scents that must be out there.

As of now, I prefer Jovan Ginseng NRG, but I'd like another scent to mix things up. What do you all like? Throw ideas out here, price doesn't really matter.

Personally I think Abercrombie & Fitch comes out with some of the best men's colognes. I do work there - but I've always felt this way. Fierce smells good, as does Colden which is a lot more masculine.

ALSO - check out Black Walnut by Banana Republic! Smells so good!

My 19-year-old son wears A&F Fierce. The girls love it. I always know when he's trying to impress some girl because he puts on a LOT of Fierce.

There are which is why I am not such a big fan of the retail chain store scents. I do have a Banana Republic cologne that I use maybe once every other month and usually only when I am just putzing around the house.

Try some of these that are much better than A&F:

Dolce and Gabanna - Light Blue
Kenneth Cole - Reaction
Kenneth Cole - Black
Allure for men
Cartier - Pasha (more of a dressy out-on-a-dinner-date scent)
Armani - Gio (its like crack to women, they all seem to really love it)
Armani - Code

Light Blue is my absolute favorite.

I agree with the Aqua Di Gio.. Every women I have ever met loves that

One that barely any one wears, and is good, and is sort of cheap.. is F.C.U.K or French Connection UK, if this site keeps blocking out the name... That is another one that gets good reviews from the women at work

I just got a light blue sample in the mail...OOOH YEH...thats the good stuff!
It smells so clean and not overbearing. Strange thing is it smells more girly on me and more musky on him!

Ugh, A&F colognes remind me of the store, I suppose it works if you are 16 years old and have that preppy style, lol, but everytime I smelled it I would still think of low rise jeans and camis and scantilly-clad models!

My favorite men's cologne is Joop All About Adam, although I don't know if you can even find it in the US.
