    Which Colognes do you reccomend and what brands in general if not specific?

    I like Cuir Mauresque by Serge Lutens. Here's a link to my fragrance wardrobe. If there's anything in particular you're interested in don't hesitate to ask.

    Maharlika- that link just takes you to your own wardrobe (if you're a basenotes member, it wont take you anywhere if you're not member there). To add a link to your own 'drobe, you need to copypaste your member number (those digit at the end of the url if you go to your profile over at BN) to the end of the link.

    I'm currently digging John Varvatos (original, not the new "Vintage" one).

    Aqua De Gio (Yes, everyone wears it, but I'll be damned if it doesnt smell good)


    The greatest cologne, IMO, is M7. But when it doesnt work it reeks spectacularly.

    IMHO

    For spicy - Hermes Bel Ami
    For fresh - Chanel Platinum Egoiste
    All-around - Chanel Antaeus

    But there are tons to choose from, we each have our own preferences, and - your body chemistry will play a role in whether a scent 'works' with you or not. Try before you buy.

    it's continuously been the number-one-selling men's fragrance in the USA since its release in 1996. Hardly "a distincive aroma" or "a signature scent" any more.
