I have a TON of colognes. Colognes for me are like shoes to women. Keep in mind everyone smells different in the same cologne, so what might smell great on one person might smell offensive on another person, depending on how their phermones mix.
Anyhow, on to my list...
Top 5 every day colognes:
2. fierce (A&F)
5. dolce & gabana
One thing you'll notice as you get more and more into colognes is that everyone has an opinion, and very few colognes that you wear will receive 100% positive feedback. However, I have NEVER had anyone have anything negative to say when I'm wearing curve or fierce. Every other cologne I wear has gotten the odd negative feedback. You can't please everyone, but if I start getting too much negativity, I remove said cologne from my rotation.
Here's some other good ones:
Unforgivable (black women always give me + feedback for this one for some reason)
Jean Paul Gaultier (I don't really like this smell but most women seem to)
And here's some I've tried and don't like or no longer use:
Paco Rabbane (*gag*)
Aqua di Gio (used to be one of my faves but this is played out like tommy)
Reaction (K. Cole)
You're mileage may vary. Personally, I am not a fan of strong/pungent colognes and prefer lighter/clean smells. Maybe this would be different if I lived somewhere where it's cold, but here in south Florida, strong scent + heat + humidity = gross.
