    Exclamation Does anyone know what men's colognes are popular in magazine samples right now?

    Long story, but my friend just wrote me an old-fashioned paper letter. Before he sent it off, he put it in between the pages of a magazine he was reading. THAT THING SMELLED SO GOOD. I can't even describe how good it smelled. I asked him if he had been wearing cologne while he was writing my letter and he gave me the magazine explanation. Now I am on the hunt. I don't really want to go to a department store to try and sniff it out because all the scents are so overpowering and I end up not being able to tell the fragrances apart. So I was wondering if any of you guys read men's magazines and knew what cologne samples you regularly see in there. If any of you want to rip out your samples and send them to me, hell, I'm up for that, too. I'm desperate over here. Whatever this scent is, it can definitely drive a woman crazy.

    The new Axe with leather is pretty big in men's magazines.

    Acqua Di Gio, Diesel Only the Brave, Lacoste Essential, some Hugo Boss frag, usually all you find in the pages of GQ at least recently.

    I've also been seeing lots of ads for L'homme lately. Do you know which magazine it was specifically?

    I'm not completely sure what magazine it was. I could probably found out, but it would be a few weeks before I got an answer.

    After looking at all these lovely responses, it makes me wonder if the culprit isn't "Acqua Di Gio." I had a profound reaction to that cologne a few years ago. But I'm not sure because I smelled it on someone else recently and it didn't smell the same. Unless the natural oils on that person's skin gave it a new, weird twist.

    Armani Code and Acqua Di GIo are still mainstays in all the sports mags.

    You know those pretentious music people who are all like, "I was into that band before it was even a band"?

    Well, I suspect that it's something like that.

    I don't post much, but I have been around this board since before it was even a board.

    If you check a GQ you may find it. They seem to have the most of those ads per issue.

    I've seen a bunch of magazine smelling strips for YSL L'Homme as of late. The ads seem to be working so much that the SAs over at the local Macy's have seen a big demand increase.

    I doubt it's in those I read, such as Hot Rod, Muscle Car Enthusiast, etc. In one of my past lives, I managed the newsstand at a bookstore and I recommend the latest issue of Details. It was always full of scented ads for mens fragrance.

    Acqua Di Gio and Only The Brave.

    The Perry Ellis would have to be the recent "Perry Ellis for Men" release.

    God, this is so difficult. The scent has already faded from his letter, which makes this even HARDER.

    But I got my hands on a GQ mag and I am pretty sure that it is not:

    YSL L'Homme, Gucci by Gucci or Guess by Marciano. There is a familiar note in "Only the Brave", but it's a little too "soapy."

    I just ordered a bunch of men's cologne samples. I will figure this out. Even if it means that I have to scour the Internet for random samples for months.

    As mentioned earlier, try Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue. The ad is usually a one or two page spread with a male model in a white speedo. I know because I bought a magazine and taped this ad to my roommate's fridge for kicks.

    Other ads:

    Polo blue, polo black, CK One
