    I'm really surprised at the dislike of Creed fragrances. Personally, I really like Green Irish Tweed and Vintage Tabarome. For light wear, I will occasionally use Eau Savage or Polo. In addition, I usually use Trumper's Extract of Limes as an aftershave.

    I wear Christian Dior Eau Sauvage and Eau Sauvage Extreme, a neglected bottle of Chanel Antaeus gets occasional use.  On my list is Acqua di Parma, forgot to pick some up in Italy last year, seems Nieman Marcus is the only source stateside, no discount there.

    I wear Ralph Lauren Romance and Eternity. Kind of a mood thing about which I decide to wear.

    I don't know about the sources, but if you like AdP check out the Colonia Assoluta that supposedly smells almost the same but doesn't wear off so fast. I haven't found it yet but I want some to replace my huge splash bottle of AdP. I love the scent but it lasts about two hours no matter how much I use, and others have similar experiences.

    Unrelatedly, I got Diesel Plus Plus (comes in a silver milk carton and bottle looks like a milk bottle) for $15-20 at Marshall's and it smells great. I think it must have come out right when I went to New York at the end of high school because I think of the trip every time I smell it. Milky, fresh, a little sweet but works well in hot weather.

    I have just bought a new fragrance to wear when I don't feel like the orange blossominess (real word?) of Caron's L'Anarchiste.  It is called L'eau de Navigateur and it is made by L'Artisan Parfumeur in Paris.  To my (untrained) nose these are both in the woody/spicy family of scents.

    Has anyone actually tried Colonia Assoluta? If this is true that it dosn't wear off so fast, I NEED this cologne. I love the smell of ADP, and was so dissapointed with the staying power when I originally bought it.

    Other than that, I've really haven't been wearing cologne at all for the past year, except for Old Spice; I love this stuff.

    I really like the Colonia Assoluta, and on me it lasts all day and more. Note that how long a scent lasts has a lot to do with skin chemistry, so your experience may be different.

    I've also never don a side by side comparison between the original AdP and CA, but I seem to recall CA is smokier than the original.

    I rotate Issey Miyake, Burberry Weekend, Bulgari Extreme, Clinique Happy, Dreamer and something I have worn, on and off close to 20 years, Eau Sauvage. There was a time, here in NY, when almost every guy had Issey M on....it isn't as prevalent these days thankfully. I get the most compliments on Bulgari and Burberry Weekend probably because they're not as popular as Issey.

    Hmm,

    - Trumper's "Wellington" as a fresh day-to-day scent;
    - Eau Sauvage as a backup to the "Wellington" when I want something fresh and different than what I wore the day before;
    - Grey Flannel, A scent I bought more or less on a whim. I find it a bit overpowering and rarely wear it;
    - YSL 'Pour Homme', I had a bottle I recently rediscovered in my closet. I haven't used it in quite some time, but with spring finally taking hold...;
    - Penhaligon's "Racquet Formula": A recent acquisition. T4phage encouraged me to try their "Blenheim Bouquet". I thought that a bit too citrusy and ended up with this one after smelling through quite a few of their colognes. Added bonus: my girlfriend can't keep her hands off me when I wear it. T4phage, many thanks for pointing me to Penhaligon's.

    i typically don't wear any cologne, but i'll alternate between chanel egoiste platinum and van cleef & arpels...sort of two ends on the spectrum, depending on my mood.
    i was just in saks the other day, and tried a brand called bond something or other. the lady at the counter was a former mixer at creed, she said that bond was more exclusive, at the same price point, and had much longer staying power than creed. anyone hear of this one?
