    help me choose between these colognes

    hey so here's a little background on me, 21 years old , studying medicine in poland. My favorite scent of all time is that smell in the Hollister store , i don't know what cologne it is but it's great anyway. Since winters in Poland are harsh and cold i need something good

    so last year i wore Armani code , but unfortunately i ran out. I'm thinking about getting it again but it's pricey as hell and the first bottle was a gift to me, it had great results, plenty of compliments . And my ex girlfriend would just absolutely melt whenever i wore it . Is it possible that some colognes blend well with certain people because i remember my friend told me he could smell my armani code on me from like 5 feet away , and at the time i was really shocked that he could smell it because i couldnt even smell it on myself.... anyway to the main point of this thread

    I'm thinking about burberry brit to replace armani code as i've heard it's cheaper alternative , anybody know how it is with the ladies do they prefer one over the other , i know code is a sure winner , and lastly i've just fallen in love with bleu de chanel , just smells amazing and im thinking of splurging for it before i go back to school , a 1.7 oz of code or chanel will run me $62 ea , , i know projection is great on code , how is it on other two...... i've tried the dreamer yesterday and it just didnt work for me , smelled like an old lady , i need something fresh , sensual , yet masculine and i feel thats what code and chanel offer , but what about brit

    right now i use CK euphoria , and polo blue , also perry ellis 360 -- this smells like aqua di geo or however you spell it , the armani one.....

    brit, bleu , and code pick the the cologne more appealing to the ladies

    thank you for your help, im new to this site!

    Bleu de Chanel or Burberry Brit which you mentioned, would be two fine choices IMO.

    I say buy more Code. You know it works on the ladies, and that's what you want, so stick with what works.

    Bleu. Code would be my second choice.

    That smell in the Hollister store that you refer to in the original post is Hollister So-Cal (I believe named for Southern California).

    i didnt mention any Socal , but i've come to the conclusion that i'm going to go for abercrombie fierce or so cal , just for that fact that it's virtually unknown , and everybody i know says abercrombie is just amazing smell for girls , i could understand how here that it's not like that much for the fact everybody wears it , so i think it would work for me in europe.

    I assume So-Cal isn't too popular in your neck of the woods, so if you love So-Cal, get So-Cal. However, I would suggest trying Burberry Brit. It's longevity is great, it smell good, and you'll most likely receive many compliments.

    Fierce is NOT good for Winter in Poland (or any season anywhere IMO, but that is my personal prejudice) - go with the Burberry Brit - Women like it, also you may want to try Burberry London.

    Burberry London

    Aesthetic tip -- rip off and discard the horrendous plaid clothsurrounding the bottle

    I would stick with Code..

    It's a known winner with you

    Recommending Blue and Code, ranking almost equally in terms not just of compliment potential, but overall versatility, trendiness, persistent longevity and projection under almost any condition, but still combined witha certain suave, understated lightness.
