    Default Looking for something to start out with

    Im looking to get a new cologne and im looking for something that has the same sort of smell that chrome has. Some colognes i was looking online at were Higher, Issey Miyake, Unforgivable, D&G, and a couple others. Does anybody have any recomendations on what cologne i shlould get?

    Welcome to Basenotes!

    I really like:
    212 and Live Jazz. Those would be a great two to look into as well. Your taste seems to be in citrus. I would run a quick search for citrusy fragrances. Good luck on your hunt!!

    CKOne is very, very similar to me.

    Hey there,

    Welcome aboard.. you might want to give Davidoff's Echo a try.. I also second CK One but if you already have chrome, why not branch out and try something a little different?

    I suggest Armani Code, John Varvatos, Unforgiveable as safe, pleasant options... as starters..

    When your nose becomes a little more refined you'll be able to pick out particular notes that appeal to you..and others that don't.

    good luck!

    When I got reacquainted with fragrances, these 5 were the ones I started off with:

    Armani Black Code
    Polo Blue
    Guerlain Vetiver (introduced me to the earthy note of Vetiver)
    Gucci Envy (my first oriental)
    Live Jazz (a coriander and mint note fragrance - was an unusual citrus for me)

    I love Chrome as well and consider these fresh and clean like Chrome:

    *Estee Lauder Pleasures for men
    *Creed Himalaya
    *Tommy T
    *Halston Unbound.....cheaper and better than Acqua di Gio
    *Polo Sport
    *Claiborne Sport
