    Hub said that his TOP 3 is Messe de Minuit, Black Cashmere and Shalimar.

    He likes Orientals, incense and wood notes.

    He doesn't care much for leather scents.

    I recently obtained Gianfranco Ferre in a swap and my favorite lady loves it. That's great, since I love it too!

    She absolutely loves Davidoff Coolwater and I cant stand it. Leaves me with a bit of a problem in that she doesnt like the scents that I prefer.

    ..... The search never ends !!!

    Haven't had a SO since I started my fragrance collecting, so there is nobody to like/dislike anything I wear.

    More money and more time, and I can wear what I want;!! yippee...wait though...maybe my fragrance choices these days are the reason I can't find an SO.

    She LOVES Hugo by Hugo Boss the flask, from freakin' 1993 but she says its a manly scent.

    She smelled L'Homme and Traditional Blue and liked them immediately...lol

    You want to know what she didn't like? Just look at my wardobe at 'Tested" and I went through everything except the kitchen sink!

    I had a sample of Geir....she didn't like it, I did if it would if it were less potent.

    She hates Le Male and scents like it, as do I.

    I picked up Allure Sport the other day, she likes that one but her fav's are that 3 mentioned above at the top.

    hey,.....i still got one more to find to make my collection complete. The CK Be is gone, gave it away and L'eau Dissey is on its way out my brotha's!!!! lmao
    The search for the perfect cologne is like a composer searching for the ultimate note.

    My husband of 13 years (Paul) loves Bois de Portugal, Havana Reserva, Photo, Jockey Club, Bulgari Black and Iquitos.

    He really despises Dzing!, H.O.T. Always and the latter's Givenchy cousin, Gentleman.

    He's not too fond of (but doesn't despise) Black Jeans, Versace Man, Versace Pour Homme and (one of my personal favorites!), Musc Ravageur.

    He only loves one scent I can't stand, and that's (ick!) Persian Leather by Caswell-Massey.

    Anyhoo, she loves:
    -Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin (her all-time fave on me, which I don't like... too much licorice)
    -B*Men (I love this one... too bad Thierry Mugler is discontinuing it)
    -GIT

    On the other hand, she hates:
    -Terre d'Hermes (I love it, but she says that it "smells like Aqua Velva")
    -Gucci Envy for Men (she said "Is that Old Spice?")
    -Jean Paul Gaultier Fleur du Male (she thought that it smelled horrible)

    She likes:

    Divine L'Homme Sage
    Cacharel Nemo
    YSL Body Kouros
    Tauer l'Air du Desert Marocain
    Dior Homme
    Givenchy Pi Fraiche was a big hit, but I swapped it away. I'm horrible


    She dislikes:

    Gucci PH (too incensy)
    Chanel PM
    MPG Santal Noble (she doesn't dislike it per se, but she says it smells just like her grandfather )

    These are the ones that have received specific remarks in either direction. Mostly, she says things are "alright" and that's that. Not much of a fragrance enthusiast!

    That cannot be! More than sixty percent of your drobe should attract candidates en masse while none of the rest would be a likely deterrent !
    Could it be that you are a trifle too 'hm ...choosy ?

    My GF (age 19... going on 20!!) has not ever said she dislikes a certain fragrance, but she cannot get enough of Creed's M.I. or Jade Emperor. She says she really likes everything else in my wardrobe, but doesn't fawn over them as much as these two.

    The guy that I'm currently seeing has only commented very favorably on JPG Classique EDT. After giving this fragrance a good couple hours to dry down, he doesn't seem to wanna let me go.

    He hasn't commented on anything else from my wardrobe.

    My wife likes all my Creeds (Imperial, Erolfa, Himalaya, Silver Mountain Water) but Green Irish Tweed. She says it smells gross, and she makes a point of telling me this everytime I wear the cologne. I personally have grown to love the stuff, it is a very soothing scent. She is 25, and so am I. I can't figure out what to do, I have multiple bottles of it.
