    What's your pick for an everyday cologne?

    My rank ordering would be 1)Terre d'Hermes, 2)Prada pour Homme, 3 )Bulgari Aqua.
    The Prada is a very close second and the Bulgari is a distant third, IMO.

    I am a big fan of bulgari aqua marine, but i also really like gucci guilty (i know, I know, but it lasts all day and I get compliments all the time).

    hmmm, depends on the season and your age. I'd say Terre is a solid everyday choice and works for most occasions. It's maybe a little mature, so better for 25+ or so, but that's subjective. I only use Aqua in spring/summer and it's not at the same 'quality' level as the other two IMO. Prada (Amber?) is very nice but i also find it might get boring every day. Still, not a bad choice.

    Try them on. Which one you like best? Pick that one. You're the one who has to smell it all day long, not the forum.

    i would go with Terre d'Hermes, and i would go with the Parfum version (not the EDT).

    i've found that the EDT is either a hit or miss with people. they either smell the citrus sitting on top of the soft woods/vetiver and it's really aromatic and sparkling OR all they get is the mineral/flint feel and they wonder why you want to smell like cold asphalt. the Parfum is much more 'rounded' and full bodied. it's blended quite nicely and smells more complex. i think it wear a bit closer, but 'blooms' quite beautifully with body heat. it wasn't till i got the Parfum that i was like, "ok, nooow i get it!"

    Some like it. On me, it becomes lipstick + cocoa puffs.
