Try Viktor & Rolf Antidote, Prada Amber Pour Homme or Infusion d'iris, or either Gucci Pour Homme or Pour Homme II. All of these are easily obtainable at a major department store and have a slightly darker, deeper mood.

In winter, I think the citrus, light top notes of your CK will get lost and come off rather flat. Another summer-y one for you to try in hot weather is Escada Sunset heat men.

Has anyone tried Tom Ford's Private Blend Black Violet? What do you think of it? I just ordered a decant, after trying it in a store. I was pretty intriqued by it, as I found it to be pretty unique. I can't decide if it is too feminine though.

Can you guys recommend me a new cologne? Here's what I have used or currently used. Addidas Moves - mainly used for sports, it's got that soap water sport smell with a sweet scent. Versace The Dreamer - my favorite cologne out of all, still using it. I love the sweet scent, but I think it's too formal and seductive. Looking for something on the same page but milder. Versace L'Homme - don't really like this, smells somewhat bitter... Aqua Di Gio - used to have this, it was good, but everyone wears it, and it smells somewhat plain/generic. Cool Water - hated it. Just hated it. Pi - didn't like it. It smelled like old French men. Bvlgari - forgot which one it was, didn't really like it, it was too strong and smelled like bleach. I'm looking for something that I can wear everyday in the spring/summer, not too sporty, but not too formal. Not too spicy because I'm still young. Would the Helmut Lang Cuiron be a good choice? Any other choices?

The only TF Private Blend I've tried is Amber Absolute. It is awesome and makes me fear for my pocketbook if I ever try any of the others.

If you can get your hands on Cuiron, it's good stuff. Also consider John Varvatos (original or vintage), or Nicole Miller for Men (these are all fall/winter scents, though). for Spring/summer, try Platinum Egoiste, or Guerlain Vetiver, or Burt's Bees Bay Rum.

They (Tom Ford) recently sent me some samples....and I did not like any of them. I tried the Tabaco Vanille and a few others....

He has a few different ones... I used to have a small bottle of Clive Christian 1872... for the price, it left me less than impressed and was just "meh." I think he goes for exclusivity and expensive packaging more than brilliant parfumery (like, a $40 fragrance in a $260 crystal flacon bottle); they aren't BAD, but when your advertising gimmick is "The Most Expensive Perfume in the World!!!" it makes me wonder. It seems to appeal to rich footballers and people who want to say that they bought a $300-800 fragrance; because of that, it will smell "good" to them. It would be far down the list of fragrances on which i'd spend my money. Nevertheless, as i said, they aren't "bad" fragrances at all if you find one cheaply or are given one as a gift. I just think that for the $300, I'd rather have any three EdP strength Guerlains, 3 L'artisans or Villoresi, or two Malle, etc.

Can't afford the Platinm Egioste. How is Guerlain's Vetiver? I did some research and it's got good reviews. But I'd like to hear from some everyday people rather than fragrance critics. Is the smell serious and formal? When I looked online, there are two types of GV, one is green and one is yellow, what's the difference between the two?

I've got a bottle of Platinum Egoiste that I'm not using. If you are in the USA, I could sell you for $38, shipping/paypal included. It's 100ml with about 80mls left. It's nice, I just don't use it. Let me know if you want it. Here's a pic: http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j2...c/DSC03104.jpg

Hey, thanks for the offer, but I want to wait till spring actually comes to buy a spring-y fragrance. Thanks again.

Guerlain's Vetiver is a soapy green scent. Kind of grassy but clean and fairly crisp. It's versatile and can be worn with a suit, or with boat shoes and shorts.

The green formula is lighter than the older yellow juice, unless they've reformulated yet again. the older juice is a tad heavier with more emphasis on tobacco.
