    Must Own Revelations

    I have been wearing Burberry London lately and have decided that it is something
    that I must continue to own. Not something I see running out of for quite some time.

    What are you "must own"...

    Re: My next Classic

    I vote for Obsession. I think it is a great colder weather classic. Yes, 80's blah blah blah...it's a great fragrance and rediscovering it in the winter is a great time to do so.

    Re: suggestions on a cologne?

    You might check out Burberry London. I think it does quite well in winter. The Citrus Bergamot notes might have the sweet citrus, but the woodsy vanilla makes it great for colder weather IMO.
