I need to buy some new cologne and I want something different. Not looking to break the bank, but I figured I would come to the expertise of the numerous men on here to give some suggestions. I was always a Curve guy so it is time to switch it up!

The $50+ you have to spend on a bottle of cologne is definitely worth it. My personal favorite right now is Chanel Allure Sport. I would also suggest avoiding Aqua di Gio as way way way too many people own it. Bottles that I own:

Chanel Allure Sport
Chanel Allure Edition Blanche
B*Men by Thierry Mugler
Ice*Men by Thierry Mugler
Ferrari Passion
L'Eau Bleue d'Issey
Bulgari Aqua
Versace Blue Jeans
Joop Jump
Azzaro Chrome

If you're gonna buy cologne, just get the rip offs at Chinatown. It's the same exact cologne for 1/4th the price.

Why drop 50 bucks on a bottle when you can spend 5 for the same exact fragrance?

Granted I'm a smoker so I usually don't smell like my cologne even when I do opt to rock it.

my 2 favorite, and I only wear them on special occasions or if my shirt had a weird smell for being in my closet or drawers for to long.

Polo Blue
jean paul gaultier Le Male, there are variations to it, but the best one is the one in a blue bottle with white stripes.

both are not strong and last throughout the day. Also its not overpowering, so when girls walk by they get a slight hint of it, and have to get closer to you to get a better wiff. This is very true for Jean Paul.

Both bottles are 60-45 dollars, for a decent size bottle, like 2 or 3 oz bottle.

Abercrombie & Fitch clothes are way overpriced, but I quite like their cologne. Cologne 41 is what I was using before the Polo Black.

I like Drakkar. It became so popular that it has become uncool to buy/wear it, but I don't care. It smells good. I like cool water too.

I get colognes twice a year from people who don't know what to give me as a gift on Christmas or my birthday (mainly my grandparents lol), so I've had my fair share of experience with them, and if I had to suggest one, it would be Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier. It's more of a sweet smelling cologne (smells kind of like vanilla, nothing fruity or berry-smelling), but I really like the scent and just like other scents, the girls really like it :).

Also, the smell is kind of strong, so you don't need to wear a lot of it, which in turn makes it last longer.

The bottle's shape is the torso of a man, and it's apparently a top rated cologne at Macy's.

Buy Abercrombie cologne. Spray at least 10-15 sprays everywhere on your body, think cologne shower. Go to movies. Pick up all the 16 year olds your heart can desire.

Effective range of cologne appears to be about 75-100ft, radius, from my adventures to the mall.

Brian Fantana: Sex Panther by Odeon. This stuff is illegal in 9 countries. It's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good.

Ron Burgundy: It's quite pungent. [cringes] It's a formidable scent; it stings the nostrils in a good way.

Brian Fantana: [daubing the cologne on his neck] Yup.

Ron Burgundy: Brian, I'm gonna be honest with you, that smells like pure gasoline.

Brian Fantana: They've done studies, you know. They say 60% of the time, it works every time.

Ron Burgundy: That doesn't make any sense.

Veronica Corningstone: My God, what is that smell?

Brian Fantana: That's the smell of desire, my lady.

Veronica Corningstone: God no, it smells like, like a used diaper filled with Indian food! Oh, excuse me.

Brian Fantana: You know, desire smells like that to some people.

Garth Holliday: What is that? Smells like a turd covered in burnt hair.

News Station Employee: It smells like Bigfoot's dick!

it really depends on the season and occasion. there are light fragrances and muskier ones. i wish i could pull off a musky cologne but it's just not me. i use lacoste essential which is pretty light and summery. but it wouldn't work too well using a light and sweet cologne on a cold winter night. something bolder and stronger for the winter time.

I've never worn it (or bothered to smell the guy who does) but a friend of mine in college tells me that Aqua Di Gio is liquid panty peeler/stripper (depending on your term).

This:

Amazon has it for 60 a bottle. Not sure if that's good or not. Although if you look like the guy in the Fierce ads, you could just go semi-shirtless without cologne and girls will probably think your cologne is great.

Used to have a bottle of that, was a great smell but agree that a lot of people own it. Code is another great one from Armani.

The key with cologne is to buy one that suits your natural smell and personality though, get one of the girls selling it to help you out, put it on and walk around for 10 minutes and see if the smell lasts and still smells good.

Do you guys order stuff Online without trying it? Is there somewhere I can get samples of different colognes? After you spray more than 3 different ones at the store, they all start blending together, so it's kinda tough trying to pick one out if you don't know what you're looking for..

I haven't worn cologne since early college. As long as you don't smell BAD I don't see the point in dropping $60 to temporarily smell like a club dancefloor. But then I am married so my opinion doesn't count in this discussion.

Very true. There are fragrances that are bolder. Ones you might wear to a club or a night on the town. More mundane scents that are more appropriate for like the workplace or to church. Then you have your winter scents and your spring/summer fragrances.

I think my deodorant is good enough for most cases. And I usually get told I smell nice when the girl is close to me. So I feel paranoid if I add anything onto that. Don't want to be too overpowering.

Its pheromones, all animals have them and its just another way that we are attracted to other people around us (pretty much all interactions that are face to face). Cologne covers up your body's natural pheromones and certain kinds actually shut off the glands that produce the pheromones if you wear them enough. It is believed that pheromones control everything from everyday first impressions of people, to "love at first sight", and establishing your social hierarchy among your social group. It's another reason I just stick to minimal deodorant/anti-perspirant use and absolutely no cologne.

I know this stuff is a punchline to jokes about the 80s, but it works.

You'd better make sure you figure out how much mixes correctly with your body chemistry (hint: put on half as much as you want to...it's what is known as a "powerhouse" scent). If you wear too much, you're going to make people literally leave the room to get away from you. If you wear just the right amount, you're going to get compliments from women for a good 12-13 hours before it finally wears off. I've heard everything from "ooh, you smell nice" to "can I borrow some of that to spray on my pillow" to "can I sniff your neck" to "can I sniff your neck again" to "oh my god, that cologne smells so...manly!"

Haven't gotten any negative feedback in the years I've worn it, but like I said, you have to know the right amount.

I picked up a bottle of polo double black recently. My female roommate loves the way it smells (nothing romantic between the two of us) and my girlfriend loves it. It's crazy how good it smells even the next day after sleeping 8 hours. I also use very sexy for him by victoria's secret. It smells okay.

Well, brunch itself isn't that bad, but wearing cologne to brunch is. Just take a damn shower to get the sex off of you before going out in public.
**** that. Everyone should know. Who showers before brunch?

I had double black. It's too strong for too long. Besides, so many people have it and regular black...why would I want to smell like every other dude?

Strange thing. I found this Burberry cologne that smells great IN THE STORE. So I bought it. Used it at home, and I smelled like a French *****. My girlfriend at the time was not a fan of it. I defended myself vehemently. She did not believe me. We were in the store one day, and she found a cologne she really liked. It was the SAME ******* ONE! She was beside herself and apologized. It was one of our favorite stories to talk about.

I still have the cologne and it still smells like French *****. Makes me so mad. If it smelled how it smells in the store, I'd be all about it. I use it to mask farts in my office now.

Which Burberry cologne is that? I have Versace's The Dreamer, which doesn't smell very good at all when you first spray it, it's got a really strong tobacco smell at first.. but after it dries down it smells gooooood. Nice, fresh, and clean.

My suggestion: never buy a cologne without getting a whiff of the scent. Go to a department store and ask for a sample, they always have some.

In any case, I think I posted earlier, but these are pretty damn good:

- Le Male, by Jean Paul Gaultier - not a typical cologne, in the sense that it's not necessarily musky and woody and whatnot. More of a sweeter scent, but it's great for certain night environments. Not for work environments. This stuff will stick to you for a long time though, so be careful with the sprays. Don't overdo it, it's really easy to do so.

- Chrome, by Azzaro - a daytime cologne, IMO, the sort of scent you want to carry around in class, coffee places, and whatnot. Not a very sophisticated scent, but it works.

- Acqua di Gio, by Giorgio Armani - supposedly a "summer scent," I use it for random events, not quite a daytime cologne, but not a scent that will stand out. Sort of basic for me, but I like it. Also supposedly a solid work cologne, though I would advise against wearing cologne to work. A lot of people get annoyed with certain scents, and since a lot of people over-spray, it might be overwhelming.

- One Million, Paco Rabanne - the one I'm using now for nights out. It was a christmas gift, and I like it. Not a musky, woody scent, but it works. Lots of compliments on it.

So, basically, go to a department store and try a cologne with one of the test/samples they have. Colognes will wear differently on each person, some will carry the scent for a long time, others will lose it quickly, it's a matter of mix-and-match and seeing what works. Also, when you spray it, wait like 5 minutes for the "real scent" to kick in. The first whiffs you get carry stuff that dilutes/disappears rather quickly. Put it on the back of your hand, do random **** for a couple minutes, and then smell it.

I have a bottle of that ^^

What I have:

Kenneth Cole Reaction
Ralph Lauren Polo Double Black
Ralph Lauren Polo Red
Cool Water by Davidoff
Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male
Very Sexy by Victoria's Secret

Double black has always been my "go to" cologne. It is my girlfriend's favorite for me to wear. Polo Red is a newer more flowery man scent, it's slowly growing on me but not my favorite. I like Le Male but it is really strong and I don't like wearing it to work or just around town. I really only wear that one when I go to the bars or i'm going to a party. Reaction is my cologne that I will wear just about anywhere. It's not to strong but the scent is going to radiate.

My girlfriend also tells me that I don't need to wear cologne and I smell just fine without it. I tend to disagree, but she still really likes it when I wear double black.
