Smell Great for Cheap


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

I always get compliments from girls (and guys actually) on this little unknown cologne-


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


I 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, in general-

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'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)

    Ayo, im going to try this, i´ve had buying a new cologne on my list for a minute now, BUT
    i usually put some aftershave cream/lotion on my face before i go out because it has a decent effect on my skin and leaves a halfdecent smell and i DO NOT want to overdo the smelly thing. That wont come across very well and im the first to admit i have zero competence to judge if different smells go together.
    Any advice on this?

  • Don't worry about this stuff too much. It's not super strong smelling, even at 3-4 squirt. lets put it this way- I use like 8. :)
