    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.

    Foxx, do you mind me asking how much it cost you and what size you bought?

    you know, i'm actually not sure how much it was-- i bought two things from NM that time, shipped seperately to me-- long story short, I just don't recall. however, i can tell you it only comes in one size, which will last a person like me for quite a while (probably a normal size for most everyone else)

    i don't know how unique this is, but i like l'homme by lanvin. it's a very clean fresh scent without being citrusy or unisex.

    Odd, I was just discussing this with drizzt.

    I'm way too hyped about Creed's Silver Mountain Water and Imperial.

    Bond No. 9's Little Italy is another fragrance of note.

    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.

    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 [​IMG] . 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 recently purchased Viloresi's "Yerbamate"

    I really like it. I'm not sure how to describe it, however. It doesn't fit into any of the normal categories I'm used to.

    My favorite is Belami from Hermes. Masculine scent with leather overtones.

    It might be too sweet for some people's tastes, but sexual by Michel Germain is fantastic. It's a very memorable scent.

    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).

    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 [​IMG] Anyway, I made a new discovery. Penthaligon's Castile [​IMG] 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.
