    Past 6 months I have become infatuated with cologne. Im 22 years old "my avatar is myself". I wont list my 14 bottles but my favorite cologne is Intimately by David Beckham. Never met a girl that doesn't like it or ask what it is. Problem is it doesn't last that long, maybe only 3 hours. So anything close this? The opening is just amazing

    Main comparisons look to be Gucci Pour Homme and Dirty English.

    I am not familiar with Intimately by David Beckham and I'm sure many knowledgeable members will be able to help you out.

    Perhaps Antidote by Victor & Rolf or Quasar Fire by O Boticario. By the way, welcome to you!

    I would jump on a website like perfumedcourt and grab 5-10 samples and go from there. Read reviews on different stuff and order samples of what sounds interesting. That's what I have been doing and I found my GOLD! (3 scents from Amouage and 1 from Creed)

    That's why you sample first! I have spent over $200 on a bottle but Ilive forthe finest things in life. The little things that make life enjoyable to me. If something less expensive fits your needs and wants that is great, just be careful. Once you find the greatest stuff on earth you never knew could exist, and it's $100+ for half the size of a designer bottle for $65, you just might be eating those words lol. Just don't blind buy.

    OUCH. You'll find plenty of idiots on this forum then. Same idiots who drive Lamborghiniswhen they could have saved $$ and drive Toyotas. Same idiots who travel overseas to have bespoke suits made when they could just buyclothes from a thrift store. But since you have already spent way over $100 for those 14 bottles ofcologne, I say: WELCOMEto the Idiots Club!:laugh:

    You do realise that you just insulted the very people you are seeking advice from, right?

    I would feel like an idiot if I spent over $0.00 on a tattoo.

    On that note, perfect fragrance for OP... Michel Germain Tattoo. Can be found at Ross/Marshalls/TJ Maxx for under 10 bucks.

    Simmer down guys.

    I think it's language barrier issue.

    Im almost certain he did not mean anyone who pays $100 for a perfume is an idiot.

    He was responding to Dothraki's suggestion to buy samples/decants first before committing to expensive perfumes.
