    I have a different contribution to this thread.

    L'Eau D'Issey the deodorant stick smells NOTHING like the cologne and instead synthetic, generic, nausea-inducing lemon. It also has about the malleability of a brick, so, not too pleasant to rub it on your skin. Still gonna use it though. Money's paid. Ya dig?

    Must agree with Snafoo - the Infusion D'Homme by Prada shower gel is fantastic.

    Has anyone tried Terre de Hermes shower gel?

    I received L'Occitane Vetyver shower gel as a gift, and I really like it a lot.

    Malle's Bigarade shower gel is quite nice...$$$ though. I love the Mugler Cologne gel...that would be my fav I think.

    Yves Rocher also makes shower gels to match all their Pur Desir floral-line...haven't tried them, but they can be had for between $6-12, so they're worth a shot (esp. the Mimosa).

    OMG, I forgot about that one. Just the idea of showering in something that costs as much as fragrances ($75 for a 200 ml bottle) feels guilty. But I'm sure it (and the Vetiver Extraordinaire) are wonderful. One can dream, I guess...

    I find it as good as any. Someone somewhere made the remark that it would focus on simple notes of orange and pepper or something like that. I think that might indeed be the case (although it was a pleasant smell). No way it's better than the fragrance itself. I cannot think of such a thing in general. Neither do I expect it.

    Where do you guys find these? My stores usually only have the colognes themselves, occasionally the deoderant with a gift bag.

    Prada Infusion d'Homme, and Amber shower gels are fantastic.
    Guerlain Vetiver is great, nutty and crisp.
    Kenzo Power isn't better than the juice, but quite close.
    CdG2Man is absolutely fantastic. Not sure which I prefer, but to be honest when they shower smells that good I dont want to get out.

    I find that most Axe fragrances work far better as shower gels than body sprays.

    Go online to one of the discounters like beautyencounter.com and do a search. Shower gels are almost always heavily discounted and using the shower gel of something you already like is quite a luxury.

    To add to what Ruggles said, I believe alot of counters do use fragrance sets(including the cologne, shower gel, lotions of the same scent) to push the frag during sale or discount periods. Definitely worth getting as a good treat.

    I'm not saying its better but, The Beat shower gel is pure heaven! A green leather shower gel. Its the best I have used to date.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I wonder if it's possible to buy shower gel samples, or does it just make better sense to buy the smallest shower gel offering. I've only had the pleasaure of owning 2 cologne shower gels: Dolce & Gabbana ph & Versace Blue Jeans. The D&G gel smelled just like the cologne, but I didn't really think the Blue Jeans gel smelled very similar to the cologne. Thing is though-it still smelled very nice, and I fealt especially fresh when I showered with it. GPH2 is my favorite fragrance, and I have come across the shower gel a few times at the Marshalls down the street. I may have to purchase it, along with another VBJ shower gel.

    I think that Clinique Happy as a body wash has better longevity as a fragrance than the EDT does. Not that that would be hard or anything.

    Lynx(Axe) Recovery is far better as a shower gel than it is a deo.

    Lynx Fever was one I had as a shower gel and I loved it. So I bought the deo and it was equally as awesome!

    Today I received a big bottle of Mugler Cologne shower gel / shampoo. I love this stuff. I already had a complimentary mini, and the vetiver-like scent is just SO refreshing under the shower. It's seriously better than the eau de cologne itself.

    What other scents work better for you under the shower, than the actual bottled frag?
    Which one lasts longer?

    Ohhh, don't get me started -- I am a scented soap and shower gel junky!

    I actually mostly use things like L'Occitane, Mistral, BBW, etc. In those lines, the soaps and other body products definitely smell better than the fragrances.

    I'm more of a bar-of-soap type boy myself and generally I use normal soaps with little or very short lasting scents like Pears or Imperial Leather, but if I do go "fancy"...
    I love the Paco Rabanne PH shower gel. Not sure if it's better than the juice, though. It's quite different from the EDT, and it's a little Radox-esque, but it's great all the same, especially with a very hot shower.
    The Aramis bath soap is a beautiful thing. Smells very similar to the EDT and is very moisturising. A go-to soap for me in Autumn/Winter when I wear Aramis and highly recommended.

    My fiance really likes the Floris Fleur shower gel. Smells identical to the perfume and it makes the bathroom all fragrant and luvverly, so suffice to say I like it too.

    Also, Trumper's Fern bath stuff (doesn't really lather, so it's a bit of a pain to use in the shower) is hands-down the best lavender bath stuff i've ever tried. It's like a Yardley soap on steroids but incredibly natural smelling.

    Oddly enough, the only bath wash I've used that also has an EDT is Cool Water, and it was ok, nothing special. I've been dying to try out the Mugler Cologne Bath Wash, just never got around to getting it.

    I forgot about that one. They have that soap-on-a-rope too, don't they? I want to get that, it makes the bathroom tub smell wonderful, hanging there.

    They do indeed. If my bathroom design was a little more thought out ("better and not really tiny" I believe they call it in the trade), I'd go for the soap on the rope too, purely because I think it looks cool. Sadly, the only place to hang it currently involves water falling directly on it, meaning the bars get wasted and my fiance really doesn't want to smell like Aramis when she has a shower or washes her hair. At least I can pop the bar in the plastic container and chuck it in the cabinet when i'm not using it.

    I've actually been looking at the Aramis shower gel and shampoo for travelling purposes as I tend to wear it a lot when i'm away on business. I'm assuming it smells awesome.

    I'll second the mention of Moulton Brown Black Pepper gel - it's really amazing (yet the juice is just mediocre). It makes a greta base for any incense- or oriental-based scent.

    I'll also add that Moulton Brown's Blissful Templetree is a great base for any of the Kouros scents. It doesn't smell exactly the same, but is close enough for government work - and it's a lot easier to find and less expensive than the Kouros gel itself (which is terrific by the way). You just have to get past its lurid blue colour...

    Now I'm going to have to hunt for many of the gels mentioned so far: GDG2Man, M7, Rive Gauche, Bandit, etc etc etc.

    Not better then the EdT, but Prada Amber is my go-to shower gel. Soap that smells like soap? It's SO damn rich. I also use L'Occitane Vetyver gel regularly.

    Also excellent is the Helmut Lang gel, though it may be gone from the last supplier now.

    I've been wanting Dior Homme, Pour Monsieur, Antaeus, Rive Gauche, and TdH but I'm simply out of room in the shower between me and my wife's stuff!

    +1 Absolutely. Get it if you can. Cannot say the same for Givenchy Gentleman though. Juice is far superior (as it should).

    Well, my answer comes late, but the low-cost aftershave "Rebel" by Oriflame also included an adjacent beauty range and guess what, while the after shave already smelled manly and leathery, the shower gel was even a few significant degrees better, since, at least on the skin, it developed not only these edgy, manly notes, but also a rich, creamy, opulent, distinguished fragrance note and allround (far more than scent-related) mood...

    You have got to try Aramis scented hair gel (it carries just enough of the scent, without getting annoying) and soaking bath salts (they come in a bag inside a tortoiseshell tub). Aramis ancillary products are very well done, IMO.
