New cologne discoveries? - Page 2

post #16 of 27
Haven't found anything I like better than Annick Goutal's Eau d'Hadrien. Been using this for a couple of years now and love it. Great for day time.

Burberry's Touch. My gf melts when she smells it. Hell, I melt when I smell it. I've been trying L'eau Par Kenzo, which I like (and the gf likes). My day to day stuff is Thierry Mugler's M (I think that's its name--it has a big M on it). b

I also use Carthusia's Io and Acqua di Parma. Carthusia's Mediterraneo is another fabulous citrus scent.  For something different in the cooler weather, I wear Yohji Yamomoto.  In our house we call it the food perfume--licorice, fig, maybe even a little tobacco seem to figure in the scent.  NM used to carry it.
That is the one I thought smelled like old lemon tea... Meditterano.  Sorry Philosphe   . For a 'relatively' easy to find cologne that is different, try Lancome's Trophee Lancome (if it is still made).  Very nice floral, herbal cologne.
I'm not too fond of Mediterraneo either. It's way too sweet. People who wear that in the summer must be carrying a swarm of wasps in their neighborhood Anyway, I made a new discovery. Penthaligon's Castile A very nice warm en subtle odour

Has anyone else found that advice on cologne is useless. For me at least, I really need to go try it out. It's remarkable how some change completely when on my skin. For example, Kiton smells very good when on paper, so much so I would buy it. However, when on my skin it smells almost sour, which is a shame cause I like it alot.

mike, i agree. when i was in high school i had a cologne called "jazz" by ysl. i wore it to school several times and my friend said it smelled like piss. then one of my teachers complained that it smelled like they were tarring the roof. i still liked it though.

True, therefor always ask for an tester. Good perfume retailers will give/make you a tester since they know the effect of the cologne is different on every skintype.

Bond No. 9 Wall Street has a nice distinctive smell to it.

L'eau Noir by Dior Homme is really distinctive.

thought this might be interestin....if you're reading the forum, you probably stay away from the "avail everywhere" cologne that everyone can find at the local mall.  I've found nordstrom and Neiman Marcus to be the best places to find unique stuff, at most price-ranges. My newest find-- if you have a chance, give Etra by Etro for Men a sniff.  Liked it so much I ordered a bottle; very cool stuff and different.
NM and Nordstrom are [i]at the local malls, though...

After using Issey Miyake, Burberry Weekend and Bulgari Extreme alternately for years, I finally introduced a new scent to my olfactory wardrobe.....Paul Smith Extreme. I am loving its fresh and citrusy smell.
yer obviously a seriously serious cool guy cuz *I* use those same ones (Issey, Burberry, Paul Smith Extreme...as well as original Paul Smith which i actually like better than Extreme) my newest eau discovery has been Lacoste which is getting the most use in rotation these days

I've been wearing Paul Smith London (The Original PS in the green bottle) for about 5 years now, I really like the Issey Miyake seasonal colognes, but not the regular one. Any suggestions for not well known Citrus colognes?
