Guess people have different opinions about smell as well, just like taste, hearing (especially sound quality), music, ...

I liked Givenchy Gentleman in my cologning (?) days. Now all of it gives my wife a headache.

Acqua Di Gio was Armani's top selling fragrance at one stage.

Bijan Black For Men By Bijan
my wife loves it, and I always get asked by gals what I am wearing at bars and whatnot..(though I am a faithful husband!)

What kind of cologne do your gentlemen wear? Any personal favorites in your collection? Which cologne do you find gets the women turning their heads and for you married guys, which cologne does your wife like?

Personally, I am fond of Eternity by Calvin Klein and Lacoste Essential during the daytime. By night Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani. All of them are subtle scents when worn in moderation and women seem to enjoy them almost as much as I do.

L'Eau Par Kenzo and Kenzo Air

Loving my sample of creed millesime imperial.

Using varvatos by J.V. as my daily-- hanae mori was almost my daily, but what seemed like a tinge of mint in varvatos won me over. Might get a sample of L'eau D'Issey Pour Homme from a friend :D

Wouldn't mind having a small amount of rochas/a*men around, but not really suitable for me in terms of daily use.

i'm really tempted to try some creed...read so much about it on basenotes. bottles are expensive arent they?

Yes, Creed is fairly expensive, so you may want to try samples beforehand. I've tried Millesime Imperial and Virgin Island Water. MI is interesting but the sour note smells too sour on me. VIW on the other hand is one of my favorite colognes ever, very tropical and beachy, like wearing a piƱa colada. Creed's cologne names seem to very accurately describe what you'll smell.

Also, Creed's Fleur de the Rose Bulgarie (the 1890 version) is one of the most beautiful and realistic rose scents I've ever smelled. I bought some for a girlfriend and she loved it.

After reading this thread a couple days ago, I decided to buy 8 1 mL samples of Creed colognes. The total came to about $35. It was such an impulse buy.

Baldessarini Del Mar by Hugo Boss
Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani
Burberry London for Men

I like the freshness of the kenzo pour homme for day use. Night-time I've used escada magnetism, but I'm not sure whether I like it or not, maybe a bit too strong for me, but the girls seem to like it. It is also a very unusual and mysterious scent, perhaps stands out in the crowd (never a bad thing in a nightclub environment).
