I know that this is very subjective.

but in your honest opinion, if you could only pic one, what would you say the best smelling men's calogne in the world is?

Nice thread ! Bought my darling husband Dior Aqua Fahrenheit last week -
he/it smells 'heavenly'
I also like Giorgio Armani Black Code on him.

  • Dior Higher Energy, Eau Sauvage, Dior Homme, Dior Homme Intense, Bois d'Argent, Fahrenheit Absolute, Jules
  • Issey Miyake L'Eau Bleue D'Issey
  • YSL M7
  • Bvlgari Black
  • Victor & Rolf Antidote
  • Caron Pour Un Homme, Yatagan
  • Josef Statkus Eau de Parfum
  • Etro Vetiver, Mahogany
  • Versace Versace Homme
  • Burberry The Beat Men
  • Dsquared He Wood
  • Geoffrey Beene Grey Flannel
  • Diptyque Vetyverio
  • Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male
  • Paco Rabanne Ultrared, Ultraviolet
  • Lanvin Arpege Pour Homme, Vetyver
  • Comme des Garcons Avignon, Vettiveru
  • Gucci Pour Homme, Pour Homme II, Envy for Men
  • Guerlain Vetiver, Vetiver Extreme, Habit Rouge
  • Knize Two, Ten, Forest
  • Acqua di Parma Profumo, Colonia, Parma Cipresso, Parma Mirto

If I have to pick one then Dior Homme Intense, probably.

I like Obsession.

It smells like a rich old 6'0 male, age range 45-70 years old with money.

But then I don't think it could look good on a young man or an ugly man.

The man must look distinctive like Clark Gable (in his older years)

see, that's the thing! I'm young so I don't want to buy something that's too 'distinguished' for me, people will think I smell like an old man!
Though I want something manly, I like musk, but NOT strong and overpowering, and I also like hints of sweet or a little spice, but NEVER overwhelming (that's my main rule) I'll look on Ray's list

I guess then you can kick Gucci and Ysl from the list, they are more on the in-your-face and over-the-top range.

lol, definately not for me, I like a subtle, but present scent, that smells oh-so-good to the ladies
but up until now, I've never really worn colgne only because I thought it was too overwhelming, a man can do a lot with just a good deoderant
lol, but now I want a nice cologne, so, I'll be on the lookout!

You and I it seems have similar taste in calogne. I like a powerful (noticable--get compliments from strangers) calogne, but not LOUD. I don't know why, but I can't stand JOOP (gross)! I don't know if you've heard of Joop or smelled it. My older brother really liked it (on his favorites' list), but it almost makes me nauseated with how strong it is (I'm glad he doesn't wear it anymore, lol).

I like John Varvatos.




Curve is inexpensive but it smells so good.

I have used CURVE ( take note Tyriffik ), and it has never failed--I get compliments from random people. So, you are right about Curve. the first time I smelled it I was won over.

I haven't heard of John Varvatos...but thanks for the suggestion.
