    Thinking about buying some, but not sure. I've read that it's a great accessory. I've also read to avoid it all together and just stay clean and showered up and that's fine.

    I used to wear Acqua di Gio (sp?), but I'm worried that that I might be growing out of that at age 30-ish.

    Any thoughts and experiences to share?

    That's actually the stuff I use, the rare times I ever use it. (At my rate, the bottle will run out in about a thousand years) Women I date seem to like it, so I don't mess with it.

    Don't laugh: Victoria Secret's Very Sexy for Him.

    It's currently batting 1.000.

    Interesting. I wasn't sure. I like how it smells, but I'm no good at judging. I would probably splash on Drakkar or Axe if I didn't know better! I'm sophisticated in other areas, but my nose is a horrible guide.

    Do they still make that? I used to wear it and never bothered getting any more.

    I'd like to start wearing it again.

    As for the original question, it's important you try the cologne on yourself first because it won't smell the same as it does in the bottle or on someone else.

    Grey flannel is a good heavy scent. And I like hugo boss as well.

    Usher's cologne is good.

    Did I say that out loud?

    Yep. And you can even <a href="http://www.victoriassecret.com/ss/Satellite?ProductID=1265407257763&c=Page&cid=1295527772982&pagename=vsdWrapper">buy it online</a> so you don't have to walk out of VS with a pink bag.

    They also have <a href="http://www.victoriassecret.com/ss/Satellite?ProductID=1265407252431&c=Page&cid=1295527772982&pagename=vsdWrapper">another variation</a> that's proven to be a winner.

    Brooks Brothers Royall Manadarin is top notch.

    Cologne just screams out a lack of social consciousness.
    Most high end designer fragrances are petrochemical based. You are basically mainlining chemicals and ruining the environment in the process.

    Consider not wearing cologne as part of you personal sustainability plan.

    Easy does it on the Axe Body Spray. You smell like the interior of a 1985 Mustang.

    How much did that set you back?

    The hooker. Not the cologne.
