I'm not a huge fan of Burberry's frags, although I would have been nicer than appolyon about it. The one I did enjoy, was their Burberry for men version#2. It has been discontinued, so it apparently didn't sell well.

Haha, ok I see...

Can you guys recommend me a new cologne? Here's what I have used or currently used.

Addidas Moves - mainly used for sports, it's got that soap water sport smell with a sweet scent.

Versace The Dreamer - my favorite cologne out of all, still using it. I love the sweet scent, but I think it's too formal and seductive. Looking for something on the same page but milder.

Versace L'Homme - don't really like this, smells somewhat bitter...

Aqua Di Gio - used to have this, it was good, but everyone wears it, and it smells somewhat plain/generic.

Cool Water - hated it. Just hated it.

Pi - didn't like it. It smelled like old French men.

Bvlgari - forgot which one it was, didn't really like it, it was too strong and smelled like bleach.


I'm looking for something that I can wear everyday in the spring/summer, not too sporty, but not too formal. Not too spicy because I'm still young.

oh come on ... I wasn't being mean. That is the conclusion we were all going to come to in this thread so I just saved us the time.

Having said that here are some good threads to see what other members are wearing and liking. If you see rach2jlc posting in any of these threads pose your question there and hopefully he'll answer it. He is one of the resident scent gurus here.

Also if you do a search with fragrance in the title you should come up with many more pieces or reading.

Fair enough Appolyon, I see your point. You did cut right to the chase! APG, he did load you up on some good advice above. Good luck finding something new. For Spring/Summer, I wear Acqua di Parma, Faconnable and Prada Amber pour Homme among others.

I'll join the chorus in not seeing the appeal of Burberry fragrances. I've got nothing against the brand, per se, it's just that all the fragrances from them I've tried lackluster and dull. From a design house at the "prime" level, you expect something with a little distinction, whereas the Burberry stuff is just the typical sweet/woody/citrusy variety that is "nice" but unmemorable.

This is probably one reason you see it at discounters for $19-25 all the time. Same with Dunhill.

Gucci (especially under Tom Ford) and YSL are both design houses that put out interesting "mainstream" scents. Prada is another, as is Dior (for the most part). A few Givenchy offerings are top notch.
