    Anyone have some advise for me. I am trying new colognes all the time. In my 20s it was Cool Water and I got a ton of compliments but I grew past it. I actually prefer Fall/Winter type colognes and right now I own Burberry London, Verscace Dreamer, Michael and Corduroy.

    My Summer type colognes are Acqua di Gio, Versace Man and Dolce & Gabanna Light Blue. I'm probably in the minority but AdG smells pretty synthetic on me. Versace Man is incredible on me but loses power quick and D&G Light Blue is in between and smells good but I don't notice it much after the first hour or so.

    A quick note..Armani Mania was a signature of mine for awhile and I love it but I am out and I really like changing things up. I tried Versace Blue Jeans at the store and though it dried nicely I was disappointed in it.

    Any recommendations?

    Romeo Gigli Man (Profumi) and Romeo Gigli per Uomo. The first is citrus with a delicious twist, the second is stronger (slightly herbal, woody and resinous) and I love the bottle! On skin the scent fades in and out through the day, more obvious on cloth.

    Acqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta or Intensa

    The results of all of these fragrances will vary depending on your skin/chemistry.

    I think AdP Colonia Assoluta lasts a long time. It lasts longer than my other summer time fragrances.

    Try Gucci Pour Homme 2 if you're like me and you prefer orientals/cold weather scents, but need a scent for the summer

    Geir is an EdP so it's definitely got some lasting power. Smells amazing too.

    The one perfume whose lasting power highly surprised me is Marc Jacobs Blush Intense.
    Might be a bit *young*, but very pretty and flowery, with a green note to spike it up nonetheless. Lasted for about 24 hours and two showers on me.

    I agree on Terre d'Hermes and Romeo Gigli Man, although the last is not very long lasting on me. I also think that the new Allure Homme Edition Blanche is very nice for the summer and quite long lasting.
    I love cologne.

    Actually this is one of my faves and I love the way it smells on me from the store. I thought it might be a little much for now but maybe I'm wrong. Thanks. I might try it.
