Try Creed Himalaya -- smells like money
Thread: College Cologne or Two
I am selling my current colognes on ebay, and am eager to try something new. I am 23 years old if that makes a difference.I would prefer something that younger girls (college age) would find interesting, and isn't especially common. Here are the ones I used to have:
Yves Saint Laurent M7
So I don't want these!
If you like a couple of those, check out my auction:
BTW I am not pimping my auction. It could just end up being a really good deal, and I don't care how much money I make.
So I do not want those.
I have been looking at
Green Irish Tweed
L'Air Du Desert Marocain
I have smelled GIT and TdH, and I like them a lot. I will probably not be able to try the others. I am buying blind! It doesn't scare me though; I am kind of adventurous anyway. I don't really have a strict budget, but a couple hundred dollars would probably be good. Thanks for your help.

Try Creed Himalaya -- smells like money
So you decided you don't like your entire collection!?! I'd keep some vials of the ones you have, just for later reference, since you'll surely wish you had them to sniff later.
I recommend Escada Magnetism. I don't have it anymore, but I did in college, and the girlies liked it. It's pretty good on its own merits, too.

Jaipur Homme by Boucheron
Gucci Envy for Men- for trying something new and, maybe, even getting to like them
Guerlain L'Instant might sell well

Don't sell your Dior Homme it's FAN-tastic! Oh wait I'm too late lol.
GIT is a great choice. Buying blind is too risky imo, especially for niche stuff. Luckyscent.com has a lot of exclusive type stuff and offer samples pretty cheap to boot.
You should have sold these individually IMO! Give people discounts if they bought multiple bottles, but if you just want to clear it out all in one shot because the extra money isn't worth the hassle of reposting whatever's left of your collection to sell, by all means, that's your price for a simpler piece of mind. IMO, most gals have a sweet tooth, they just like clean smelling guys, or they love the smell of flowers. Green Irish Tweed should accomplish a portion of that if you just want one REALLY fantastic bottle. The others you listed will take a bit longer for college girls to come around to liking than GiT.

You seem to have had a bunch of heavier scents and maybe you're looking for a fresher, lighter change of pace? I'll only tell you things I have NEVER smelled another guy wearing at college. (most of all I smell is typical aquatic scents like curve and adg and ESPECIALLY a&f fierce)
GIT is a good choice. But I like Silver Mountain Water and Erolfa more.
Other good choices outside of Creed are Prada Infusion d'Homme, Dior Homme Sport, and Chanel Platinum Egoiste.
Also, don't listen to your college aged girl friends about what they think they like. They have no idea. They like what a good-looking guy wears. If you're a good looking guy, almost anything you wear will be dead sexy to them. Trust me, I'm in college too. I wear Gucci PH and Ambre Sultan out to parties, and when girls come home with me, after all is said and done, sometimes I show them my perfume stash and if they say they don't like those type of scents, I think, that's funny, because you were telling me how much you loved it earlier. It's always that way. So wear what you like.

Thanks all. I think I am going with Amouage Dia and Ciel
^ how do you manage to get them for that price?!
Good choice. hope you enjoy
i would recommend acqua di parma. it's a very fresh, citrusy, clean smell. if you want to blow their minds, get kouros and reap the benefits
