Guys - Do you Wear Cologne? Which?

So I am at the point of about 3 days left in my bottle of cologne. I have had this bottle for about 4 years.

Gio by Armani is what I have been wearing. I like it, but it doesnt seem to last.

I am thinking of getting Kenneth Cole Black.

I also have a bottle of Isse Miyake that I really dont wear. Too strong on me. I like something a little cleaner.


So....

Do you wear cologne?

What type?

Every day?

Does it last?

Do chicks dig it?

How do you characterize the smell? (clean/fruity/musky/etc)

Am I fruity for starting this thread?



Please dont even mention is you wear that patchuli (sp?) oil. Go sit in on the White House and leave my thread alone.

Wow, four years? What size was the bottle? A 4 oz. bottle probably is enough for a ocuple months. I was thinking about trying out the Gio. For now I am just using polo sport. Just a few sprays a day.

Issey Miyake was not clean enough?

That's the cleanest one I can think of.

I used to swear by D&G but it has been discontinued. Then I used Issey Miyake for a while. Now it's been roughly a year with a 4.2 oz. bottle of:



It's only halfway gone though. I think Ranger uses too much cologne.

I use BY by D&G. It's a really good cologne that is used everyday. Chicks like it from the compliments I get as well.

I use BVLGARI as well, the original one not the Extreme or the new one. I've always had compliments from the girls when I wear it, but don't wear it that often, once a week maybe? It is pretty subtle so i like that.

I've been using the TAG body spray lately. Chicks really do plow through walls to get to you when you're wearing it.

Any man that wears Drakkar Noir will get jumped on by me! First time I smelled it I literally stuck my nose in a guys chest to take a whiff.

I like Cool Water on a guy too.

I prefer London Gentleman. Although sometimes I use Blackbeard's Delight when I am feeling musky and want a change of pace.

Swiss Army Altitude
Halston z-14

and I'm a sucker for little samples at cologne counters.

One I love but haven't bought yet is Baldesarrini by Hugo Boss. maybe ask for it for X-mas

no, you're just the only one unwise enough to say so.
