Cologne-fi - Page 19

post #271 of 362

Latest acquisition for me is one with a shamelessly bad bottle: Davidoff Champion.

 

Supposedly it opens with citrus accords, then goes into clary sage -- both of which I enjoy tremendously -- with a strong dose of Iso E Super. It's probably not very deep or interesting to a serious perfumista, but I just enjoyed the scent tremendously, as long as I can hide the bottle!

 

This will probably be my last "proper" cologne for a while, my budget is going to other things.

I wear Brut cologne. Its not the best smelling in the world. But the smell brings back childhood memories for me somehow. And the ladys seem to like it. When combined with the smell of a cigarette, it creates an amazing distinct aroma. Oh, and its pretty good for being a cheap cologne.

A&F Fierce - one of my favourite for normal daily use.

Burberry London love the smell of tabacco pepper and this little hint that reminds me of blueberries. The best fregrance to use when going out to pub or bar.

The last I use is Trussardi  - Essenza del Tempo nice smell for business metings it smells money but feminine.

 

There're also few fregrances which I like but do not own - D&G the one, Burberry London Special, Escada Magnetism.

Cologne is for girls. I use dirty axle grease, gives a real manly smell.

For people with exquisite tastes in audio, some of you sure do enjoy perpetrating injustices on your olfactories with your rather pedestrian scents.

That said, my usuals are Czech & Speake No. 88, Guerlain Vetiver, Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet, Creed Green Irish Tweed, and DR Harris Arlington.

I own:
Hymalaya by Creed
Hypnôse Homme by Lancôme
Thierry Mugler Cologne
The Dreamer by Versace
Black XS by Paco Rabanne
Terre D'Hermès
M7 by YSL
M7 Fresh by YSL
Body Kouros by YSL
Gaultier²

My favorite, by far, is M7, there's something in it that's just dark, dirty and intoxicating... It's a shame many people are put off by it.
The one I actually like to wear the most is Black XS, though some may find it too juvenile.

Currently I use Lacoste Essentials and Eternity by Calvin Klein. I used to use One by Calvin Klein and Euphoria by Calvin Klein.

I just searched this thread and I am absolutely amazed to see no references of 4711, the original cologne. Anyone who hasn't tried it should at least once.

Bumping this post.  This is awesome.  But, as a previous user- isn't it "Brut 33"?  Or, Brut doesn't even need a last name anymore...

Lol @ 4711.  It's great for scenting's ones handkerchiefs, not one's person.

I didn't say it was the best out there, simply that one had to try it wink_face.gif.

 

I actually quite like it. (Not necessarily for "normal use" cologne.)  It's not trying too hard to be masculine, and it doesn't smell strong. 99% of colognes now are both too strong and masculine to the point where they just reek of chemical concoction. And I hate the smell of deer testicle.

 

As for Brut, I always found it a bit strong and somehow it made me queasy, but it's not a bad scent.

Oh, absolutely!  It's just an odd choice for an everyday cologne, lol.  Have you tried Murray & Lanman Florida Water?  Another cheap and oldie but goody:

You weren't kidding when you said reasonably priced! I haven't tried it, but at $3.44 on Amazon for 7.5 ounces, sure I'll give it a try.
