Can anyone describe what John Varvatos smell like? I've been meaning to try it for years but never got myself around to do that.

Can anyone recommend a vanilla scented cologne for men?

Go to the website I posted and find out.

It'll be broken down into two or three sub categories that should narrow down the scents considerably.

P.S. You got expensive tastes but on a website like this...

Thanks. I never knew sephora carries John Varvatos. I may have to give them a little visit.

Add another to acqua di gio. I barely ever use cologne though.

It's getting old and 'last year' now, but Terre d'Hermes is my favourite, and second is CK One, but on some days I think it's a bit too flowery for a man to wear.

oh, and how could I forget Lacoste Essential, the one that got me started in colognes! Bit too cloying I find in retrospect, but still very good.

It'd be a great cologne to wear...if a million other people didn't already wear it.

Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme is awesome. Classy, clean, complex, confident.

Don't have time to read through the thread and see if this has been mentioned, but my all-time favorite is Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet. It's expensive but worth it (you can also get a good sample if you email them and ask for that one specifically).

For daily (less expensive) use, I always like Davidoff Cool Water.

A good resource for colognes (and other shaving/etc topics) is Badger and Blade.

Two major ones would be Rochas Man and A*men, with the former in my opinion being the better one. A*Men tends to overpower whereas Rochas Man has a perfect strength to it in my opinion. Rochas is also cheaper.

Rochas Man by Rochas (1999) Rochas
A*Men / Angel Men by Thierry Mugler (1996) A*Men

Just picked up a bottle of Ralph Lauren blue as a gift, not too keen on it myself, anyone interested in a trade perhaps?

Anyways, what works for some doesn't work for others. A friend recommended Boss' new "Selection" cologne to me, which works perfectly for him, but didn't do it on my skin.

I just bought both Baldessarini and Baldessarini Del Mar. Both are very light, especially Baldessarini with almost none existent longevity. They are very refreshing and uplifting like most of contemporary male fragrances, but way too synthetic and artificial to my nose. Lacks power, complexity, depth, and natural ingredient touch.

Cool Water by Davidoff or Polo Black/Double Black also have refreshing smell, but have much much more sophistication and depth and smell much more "expensive".

Terre d'Hermes is THE best, especially for work where you don't want to be obtrusive, yet elegant and classy.

Équipage by Hermès is equally good. More subdued and cleaner. Wonderful stuff.

I use Armani Attitude. It is somewhat fruity I guess but I am in high school so it is ok. haha.

CK One, Hugo Boss Natural spray...

but my personal all time fav is Fahrenheit by Christine Dior... the wildness in the fragrance is just too unique to achieve.
