    It's quite a daring combination of scents. I hate it on some days, and I like it on some days. I seem to like it more than other people who are smelling it off of me though.

    Re: Cologne for work - need suggestions

    Chanel Egoiste seems little too grown up for me (i'm 28) so my go-to scent for work is Terre D'Hermes. A very versatile scent that lasts good 6+ hours for me.
