    Default date cologne

    If you have a first date - which is your cologne of choice for that scenario?

    I usually go with Adp Colonia or Assoluta or Baie De Geneivre,
    Vintage Tabarome, Havana or Body Kouros (all a bit more risky.)

    Default Re: date cologne

    I wouldn't want something extremely loud, or something that's very challenging, I like easy going and easily likable.

    like say...
    Live Jazz or Unforgivable

    D&G The one : Soft and sensual.
    Opium PH, lightly applied.
    LF: CAP/LID for Creed Original vetiver and Creed Millesime Imperiale, 75ml. Please pm me.. Thanks!

    Tee hee. Only basing this from my own 'drobe :

    If you want to come off as sweet and sensitive (hahaha!)
    Estee Lauder Pleasures for Men
    >> recently got "awwwwws" from the opposite sex when I was wearing this recently. Basing it on that

    If you want to come off as the manly-man (appealing to her "I'm-looking-for-someone-just-like-my-Dad-but-I-can-snog-later-on" thoughts?)
    YSL Rive Gauche

    Noticed that members of the opposite sex react more to the familiar rather than what BNers think are the how women would instantly notice scents like Fierce, Acqua di Gio or Cool Water and think this guy is tops (even if they can't distinguish one from the other) at the least the guy even bothered to put on something. And please, on a first date, not too much, be easy on the trigger

    I like D&G PH, Gucci Envy, and Ambre Sultan for dates. But, I also like those for all the time.

    Really depends on the date, person, etc. Id say whatever it is, dont over-apply, as your date may not like it!
    If I were to delve back into the dating world, something like Silver Mountain Water, Tom Ford for Men, or Kiton Black would seem appropriate - all three are hard not to like, without massive sillage, but still smell good.
    Looking for: Andy Tauer - L'air du Desert Morocain & Incense Extreme

    What "works" or not is individual. If you want to play it as safe as possible, you go the generic route. This won't work if the OP is sick of the "fresh" scents most guys are wearing.

    I say wear what you like, and hope that you meet someone who appreciates that.
