    oh..forgot to do my own:

    Aquatic: Acqua Di Gio. Im not enough of a fragrance veteran enough for this to be outplayed for me yet. Probably to everyones surprise, i havent really smelled this around SO much that its too common for me either. To me, its the defiention of aquatic, and not to mention, girls absolutely flip out for this.

    Professional: Im going to be honest, i really dont know. im really interested to see everyones response

    Night-Out Scent: Yes, im back on the Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Male bandwagon. I tried to deny my love of it for a long time because it was stolen from me and rather then spending money that i didnt have at the time to buy it again, i wanted to trick myself into not liking it, but i couldnt do it for so long. Ive never worn anything with the pprojection, the longevity of Le Male, and to be quite honest, its one of the most seductive smells ive ever smelled. Honestly, the first time i smelled it on someone, i was in complete shock. The mix of longevity, projectin, and entoxicating smell make this the perfect night out scent.

    Romantic Scent: I could have gone with Le Male with this one too, but just to mix it up, im going to go with Burberry Brit. To me, is a very classy scent, perfect for a romnatic setting, and from my experience with it, it gets some of the most enthusiatic compliments. Ladies LOVE it, and i can see why.

    Aquatic/Citrus: I don't like this category, but I have to go with Allure Edition Blanche/Sport

    Professional: Chanel Plantium Egoiste, anything that projects confidence is good though. This one is just the one I find most neutral and good for projecting confidence for any personality. Far from my favorite, but what I consider the best if you don't want to play it risky.

    Night Out: YSL M7

    Romantic: YSL M7 or Body Kouros

    Best Aquatic/Citrus Designer Fragrance- L'Eau de Issey or maybe Bleu by Chanel (still testing it)

    Best Professional Designer Fragrance- Rive Gauche Pour Homme by YSL

    Best Night Out Designer Fragrance- Versace L'Homme or Santos de Cartier Concentre. Not sure if they are really "night out" fragrances, but they are freakin' awesome juice.

    Best Romantic Designer Fragrance- Antaeus by Chanel. Or L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme. Not sure if Guerlain is "designer" or "niche." (I don't thing anyone does know).

    i like this fragrance, but i get absolutely ZERO projection and longevity. it literally lasts on me maybe 30 minutes, and even for those 30 mins i have to be super close to my skin. maybe i was just having a bad day the day i tried it on my skin.

    Nope, it is that weak. No matter how generously you spray. I did really like it, but I regret spending $50 on it.

    yeah dude. i literally put three sprays on the neck, one on each wrist, and one on the chest nd NOONE could smell it, including me unless i stuck my wrist to my nose, and even that went away in 30 minutes.

    Best Aquatic/Citrus Designer Fragrance - Armani Eau pour Homme (though I would consider Monsieur de Givenchy, YSL pour Homme and many others as likely to get the top spot)

    Best Professional Designer Fragrance - in my opinion, something along the lines of either Rive Gauche pour Homme or Chanel pour Monsieur, so distinguished and restrained, and yet so versatile, never ceasing to surprise without ever deviating from a highly tasteful, elegantly understated image

    Best Night Out Designer Fragrance - for a night out during autumn/winter or on more formal occasions, I'd say either Chanel Antaeus or Ungaro III, for a more informal yet still classy night out: YSL M7 or L'Instant de Guerlain (although even the latter two qualify for a more formal or semi-formal wear)

    Best Romantic Designer Fragrance - Gucci Envy for Men
