    Bandit by Robert Piguet
    Kolnisch Juchten by Regence Paris
    Yatagan by Caron
    Knize Ten by Knize

    All of these are heavy abrasive scents. Bandit is a leather chypre and Kolnisch Juchten is a musky Russian Leather with hints of meat.

    The only light scent I have is Vert Regence which is a scent that is nauseatingly heavy with Vetiver.

    Gendarme mostly - it's all natural and hypoallergenic. Smells great but you have spray on a lot. You almost can't apply too much.

    Le Labo Rose 31 - Gotten a lot of compliments on this one. Sexy stuff. Kind of expensive, though.

    ^ Right on! I know some can't stand it, but I love everything about it. Rose 31 I'm pretty fond of, as well.

    gucci pour home ii
    ysl noir
    dolce and gabana the one
    burberry london
    burberry touch

    i need a good aqua-y / summer cologne. any recommendations?



    Versace Pour Homme is a really good aquatic. While these other two recommendations aren't aquatics, they're good summer scents IMO: Clinque Happy and Kenzo L'Eau Par Kenzo. Both of those scents are very light cologne like scents. Really good light summer fragrances.

    Weird to see Gucci by gucci here. I got some as a sample when I did product tests, and, not knowing anything about cologne, wore it and thought it was nice enough. Terrible in the hot, though, and it seems to get poor reviews from perfumehead websites.

    I bought it blind myself, and kind of enjoy it. It's not one of my favorites but I like it enough not to get rid of it. I think I paid like $20 for a 1.7 oz bottle at TJ Maxx...

    dolce&gabanna light blue. Is this mall level?

    I don't know anything about colognes though, just a spray on the neck when im going out to something that involves women, and when I go work at an office thats above casual dress.

    Thanks for the recommendation!

    I don't really have a conscious rotation of scents as people have for clothes because I tend to like something and stick with it for a while until my preference changes. Still, I own tons from working at Nordstrom. In the past couple years I've been almost exclusively wearing Chanel Allure (sport + edition blanche), Burberry London, and Cartier Declaration. Not very sophisticated, maybe.

    all of those are actually really well made, complex scents that get respect on fragrance boards like Basenotes - kudos to you!

    i like the ones mentioned bc in my experience they work in hot and cold weather - it just depends on the application. well, maybe with the exception of Burberry London, that stuff seems suffocating in the summer.

    I don't wear fragrance often, but I like Musc Ravageur (Frederic Malle), CdG 53, and Terre d'Hermes. I'm also thinking about getting a bottle of CdG Avignon, because smelling like high mass in a medieval cathedral sounds cool.

    Hermes Eau de Pamplemousse Rose
    How do you find the longevity on that one? I think it's an EdC no? if I remember it died after like 20 minutes on my skin. Plus for the longest time I thought there was rose in it [​IMG]. I just got a bottle of Guerlain Pamplelune for my grapefruit fix.
    i need a good aqua-y / summer cologne. any recommendations?
    Oh, lots and lots. But I'll suggest anything from D&G Pour Homme and Dior Eau Sauvage to Bvlgari Aqua and Polo Blue to Terre D'Hermes and Concentree Orange Vert to Prada Amber and Mugler Cologne, etc. The list goes on and on...



    I've got a decent rotation but probably my most commonly used ones are Guerlain's Vetiver, YSL Rive Gauche and Hermes Terre D'hermes. Not the most sophisticated ones, but these probably get the most regular use. I can't always smell like something crazy.
