    Just curious as to what colognes everyone is wearing for the spring and summer seasons. I currently have Higher by Dior and DKNY, but as everyone knows, you can never have enough variety in this department. Any suggestions on what's hot this year? Thanks.

    You NEED Armani "White", all the ladies go crazy when I wear it. (But I'm not sure if you can get it in the U.S. yet)

    And a very good classic is Dolce & Gabbana "Pour Homme" (blue box, silver letters)...

    Strictly old-school for me this year with what I think are the two most classic, elegant scents you can buy: Acqua di Parma and Creed Green Irish Tweed. Nothing else really has jumped out at me lately, and I don't think you can go wrong with either of those.

    I really like Christian Dior DUNE Pour Homme. I've been hearing a lot about creed colognes but they don't really have them around here so I'm gonna hit Barney's next time I'm in NY cause apparently they have a huge selection.

    Good suggestions thus far. I've heard of Armani White, but like Europe's Finest, I haven't seen it anywhere. Does anyone know if you can get it online?

    Terribly, old school, but how about Eau Savage?

    I've can't say i've ever seen armani white either. Today I got a samples of Armani (that's it, it's just called armani), D&G and Dolce & Gabana in Holt Renfrew. They're ok but i still like my Dune more than anything so far.

    I've somebody fom Europe who is sending me a bottle of "white" every two months... [​IMG] But I'm pretty sure that it'll come out in the U.S. soon. And big cities have a lot of special Cologne Stores, you might find it there. [​IMG]

    Love Green Irish Tweed. And co-fave is Neroli by Czech and Speake. Alailable at Neiman's. Royall Spyce close 2nd place.

    Issey Miyake's nice, too, but smells very similar to both Higher Dior and Faconnable.

    Definatly try Declaration by Cartier (my personal favorite). Im also wearing alot of Gucci Envy, my girlfriend wears Gucci Rush. Im dying to buy some Creed or Aqua De Parma; im gonna go to Bergdorf's this weekend to pick one up. I haven't really tried these two out yet, but do you guys think they would work for a younger guy like myself, or are they a more mature scent.

    Without a doubt, 212 for Men by Carolina Herrara. If you haven't tried it, it is a must. Also, if you can find it, Anrthacite is amazing. For the daytime, I am still partial to Pasha by Cartier.

    Acqua di Parma has a new (I think it's new) line of colognes called Blu Mediterraneo. It comes in a few different scents, I got a sample of Marine Oak from Neiman Marcus and the stuff is fabulous. Great crisp summer scent. Once the sample is gone, I intend to buy a bottle.

    Classic Acqua di Parma is also always hot especially for summer.

    Well, here are my choices

    1) Chanel, "platinum de egoiste"
    2) Burberry "Touch"
    3) 212 (have to agree with gq lawyer, awesome at night)
    4) Paul Smith, very unique
    5) Drakkar Noir (old school baby.)
