Hands Down - The Best Cologne for Men

We've discussed cologne on the forum on several times, I wanted to make my recommendation public.

Not only is this the best smelling men's cologne - it's also ridiculously inexpensive. 

I have used this since 2005 (it's been over 10 years!) and still get compliments on it on a weekly basis.

Interestingly enough, most women can't identify who makes the scent.
(they generally think it's a better version of Lacoste Red)

That's probably because virtually no one has heard of it. 

Here it is - 

Cologne can be ridiculously expensive and the markup is probably higher than any product ever.

You'll never go back to those $69 bottles of designer men's cologne. You won't need to.

in_redI discovered this little gem back in 2005 when I was wandering Oaks Mall in Gainesville FL.

One of those completely annoying, overly aggressive dipshits at one of the mall 'Perfume-mania' kiosks stopped me and insisted on spraying cologne on my shirt.

It was one the best scents I had ever smelled and to my surprise it was only $25 (less than $18 online).

To this very day I wear it and it's a scent that everyone seem to pick out.

If you've purchased any of my recommendations, you'll know that it's all top-shelf stuff.

This is no different and considering the value - it might be the very best one.

Nobody I've recommended it to hasn't liked REALLY LIKED it.

I used to buy it on eBay, but it's now on Amazon and you'll get it faster.I used to buy it on eBay, but it's now on Amazon and you'll get it faster.

To some people it seems to compare to Lacoste's - Red, another great scent.

It's not quite like that one and it's much less expensive.

My View on Cologne

Since I know I'll be asked, here is my 2 cents on cologne -

It's obviously not necessary. I don't believe in all that "pheromone" stuff.

Smelling good is necessary though and it never hurts to have a memorable scent. I know that when a girl sleeps over and leave her scent in my bed, I immediately think of her.

This scent has become "Chris" to quite a few eligible bachlorettes.

Although I get lots of compliments on this scent, I think it's more for me than anyone else. I've come to associate it with looking good and feeling good.

This cologne is what I wear today and although I definitely like other scents too, it's not worth paying 3x more for anything else.

Guarantee you'll like it and most of you guys won't buy another type of cologne ever again.

Make sure you get the men's version. :)

    I bought my first bottle of In Red six weeks ago and have been using it daily. I'm halfway through the bottle in just 6 weeks and this makes for an expensive cologne. I started with 3-4 pumps of spray then upped it to 7-9 so that it would last a bit longer. My only complain is that the scent doesn't last more than maybe 2 hours with just 2-3 pumps of spray. Maybe part of this issue is my body's own chemistry off-setting the cologne's scent?

    I've had to keep the bottle in my car or backpack and re-spray sometimes up to 3 times per day just to keep the scent going on long days (10 hour days). Other may have other experiences, but this has been mine. So in reality, it's not that cheap because you'll go through it much more frequently than the more expensive brands. THEN I discovered this... NAUTICA VOYAGE! It has a very similar scent (sweet, berry, etc) but it actually lasts many hours! Chris you should check it out if you haven't already. I got my 3.4 oz. bottle for $15 with free shipping (Amazon Prime). I can pump 3 times and it lasts all day long. Sometimes I can even still smell it on my clothes the next morning. YMMV. Good info here guys. Use whatever works best for you.

  • In Blue/In black isn't as good. In Red is where it's at. Try eBay for UK

    I've sampled quite a few colognes and done some extensive ratings. I haven't tried 'In Red' yet but I have just ordered it off Amazon (can't beat $4.34 per oz). My recommendation for inexpensive colognes would be Guess 'Seductive Homme' at $6.76 per oz. My system ranks Seductive Homme at 8.5/10 between YSL L'Homme at an 8.4 and YSL L'Homme Libre at an 8.6 (each more than double at $17 per oz). A few others worth looking into would be Guess Night ($7.65 per oz; 7.9/10 average; my wife gave it a 10/10), Nautica Voyage ($5.00 per oz) or Voyage N-83 ($6.76 per oz) equally good at 7.8. And to give further frame of reference (to lend credibility to my system or destroy it ;]) here are the top colognes regardless of price: #3 Mont Blanc Legend (9.0), #2 Ralph Lauren Polo Blue Sport (9.4), #1 Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio Essenza (9.4)

    Estelle Ewen In Red Eau de Toilette Spray for Men cannot be shipped to my address in Madrid, according to Amazon.com.

    What should I do, Chris? Is there any other way I can purchase this cologne?
