    Default Help picking new cologne

    I'm ordering some scents from beautyencounter since their coupon ends soon and needed help on 1 more cologne.

    Ordering Hugo Boss Element + Burberry The Beat (for women) for my girl

    Colognes I already have:

    Versace Man Eau Fraiche, bvlgari aqua, Gucci pour homme 2, ysl l'homme, hugo boss in motion, hugo boss selection, hypnose, Tommy Freedom, Echo Davidoff, Hugo Boss Dark Blue, l'eau d'issey and a bunch of other small ones

    I want a new cologne (2008+) with a nice citrusy/aquatic scent. I really love Element, but I went to sephora and didn't smell anything else that was new that was good, they also didn't have too many new releases to even smell. Anyways if someone judging from my collection can pick a good one that would match my taste I'd appreciate it. Not more than $55 please, so nothing too too expensive. Thanks,

    You can't beat aqua di gio or Issey Miyake which you have for the category in your criterion.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Issey Miyake Intense is the best recommendation I have for your current selection

    Tokyo is fantastic! Not a sillage monster though, if you want that. Fresh, vibrant, clean with a touch of peppery excitement.

    I had to thank you, because I ended up going with Versace Pour Homme and it's AMAZING! I thought it would smell like l'eau fraiche but it's much more manly and less salty. I also bought Hugo Boss Element and I don't find it strong at all. I have to buy my girlfriend Burberry Brit Sheer, so I might as well buy myself another cologne, do you have anymore recommendations for a new good cologne? Something I guess a bit more fruity/citrus mixed with fresh and new (2008+).

    l'eau D' Issey Intense, It's citrusy with a Punch of pepper, Longevity and sillage is ace!

    Kenzo power, Fizzy citrus opening, with a light floral as mid/base, ok longevity and sillage.

    Perry Ellis red, ADG on the cheap, lasts and projects about the same.
    LF: CAP/LID for Creed Original vetiver and Creed Millesime Imperiale, 75ml. Please pm me.. Thanks!

    I'm an aquatic fan and I find it hard to like Element. Try not to care so much about what year the frag was released. Some recommendations...Versace PH, Davidoff Silver Shadow Altitude, Solo Loewe, Cool Water Deep and Live Jazz.

    D&G Light Blue might be an option. The citrus top notes are quite nice IMO, and it has a soft, fresh dry down.

    Since you're getting the Beat for her, you should just go ahead and throw in the pour homme.
