I've got quite a cologn collection, i have some bottles i dont use,they're just there to decorate my dresser i guess..but to name some of my favorites or one's i've recieved compliments the most when i wear them(as you know colgns/perfumes smell different on people due to pharamones)Dolce&Gabbana(t he original one,not the new one)is my favorite,Mambo,Acqua Di gio,ive been told Kenneth cole Black smells good on me though i dont care too much for the smell myself.
Burberry London(i like another kind of Burberry better but i cant think of the name off top).Even though Curve is old school it still does what it do.For some reason when i rock Joop! i get hit on by older women,lol.I aint gon front,depending on the mood i may even hit myself with some Cool water.So what's some of your favorite colgnes or perfumes?..Or what fragrances smell the best to you on the opposie sex?

A thread about colognes and perfumes, I bite.

The best men's colognes I have ever smelled is one they stopped making years ago called Giorgio V.I.P., not Giorgio. This think was like an elixir, I kept wanting to smell it, you know when you go to the gas station and you get a hint of that gas scent and you know its no good but you keep wanting to inhale, well this was that cologne. I wanted to sniff the shirt all night, hell I wanted to find out if it was o.k. for women to wear. Giorgio and his wife or partner (I think) got into some big battle and the other party retained the rights and it couldn't be made anymore (that's how the story went). Joop and Cool Water and all the others are good but they don't compare.

I stick with the classics because many of the newer perfumes give me a headache. I had a dresser full and gave them all away, then I started to buy samples, because if I could wear those long enough without getting nausea then I knew I could buy it. I had to give away D&G, Angel and a list of others. I love Opium, its old, its a classic and every time I wear it, people come up and ask what I'm wearing. It's a night perfume, so if you wear it in the day, you have to go very, very light and it definitely doesn't smell the same on everyone. On my friend it smells like lemons (go figure). I love Bucheron Jaipur for women. They don't make it in the states anymore only in Europe. I never use to like it but I like it now Boucheron Saphirfor women. Someone bought it for me by mistake (instead of Jaiphur) and I hated it but I put it on a few times and people asked what it was and I kind of grew to like the scent. Alfred Sung perfume creme. My mainstay is Opium and Boucheron, all the others I use once in a while

Nothing CK. Nausea thy name is CK. I can't do it.

I don't like Red Door but Red Door Revealed (Pink Box, Pink Top), isn't bad. Has a slight talcum powder scent to it.
