I current have

Versace Man
Burberry Brit
Chanel Sport

Honestly, the only I ever use is Chanel Sport though.
I really like the Prada (clear bottle one) though. If I ever switch, that'd be the one for me.

Bought this in a gift set with a travel bag:



Sweet smelling but wears off easily.

My other one is this, its a bit 'sharp' so I use very little of it at a time:

I just found out last year that Sephora carries mens fragrances as well as other mens grooming items. Always thought it was just another make up store for women. They also have this fragrance finder program "Scentsa" which is a wall-mounted, touch-activated screen, sort of like a fragrance GPS. Haha.

Don't use them at all (less than 10times). I don't sweat a lot so I don't use it.

Also for some reason any fragrances smells will give me a headache for some reason so I avoid it at all cost.

I used Givenchy very irresistible, summer fresh but haven't touched it since I bought it in grade ten (5 years ago). Also used Issey Miyake (The blue bottle and Intense), blue bottle shattered when it fell out from my work out bag and intense gives me headaches. Currently, I use Chanel Allure and Bleu de Chanel, Allure for special occasions and traveling and Bleu de Chanel everyday.

Maybe on Ebay, but beaware of fakes. Chanel is really strict in where their products retails, you never see Chanel products at sephora, heck they don't even sell it at sears anymore. 90$ is not bad, I've used half the bottle with 1.5 yr daily usage.

I have been testing out some new fragrances... Tried Polo Black today, but it's not really for me. It's a bit... dark... I don't know how else to put it, but while I like the scent, I don't think it suits me.

My wife tried the new Gucci Flora scents, and really liked them. Magnolia was really nice, and Gardenia was so sweet, maybe a bit over the top. Check those out if you are looking for something for the lady

Been looking for Creed in HK but haven't come across it... Hear nothing but good things about it, except the longevity. I just want to check it out! I guess Lane Crawford would be a good place to check? Or would you need to go even more upscale?

Creed longevity varies from scent to scent. Lighter scents like Silver Mountain Water or Himalaya have a tendency to fade more during the day.

That said, I'm about to get a big decant of Creed Aventus.

I really like Tom Ford Private Blend stuff, but its just too dark and strong for daily wear. Oud Wood, Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather (which notoriously supposedly smells like cocaine).

yea it's really nice

for me, Cologne isnt about how it smells out of the bottle, it's the lingering smell it leaves on my clothes

I dont try to cover up smells etc, thats like my biggest pet peave is stank ass people, and even without any fragrances i'd still smell fine, it's about accentuating lol
