    Default Please Help Me Choose!

    Ok. My old lady is getting on to me for buying too much cologne lately. She told me I could buy one more bottle but I can't spend no more than 50 to 60 bucks. The ones I am looking at are Roadster by Cartier, Angel Men by Theirry Mugler, Dreamer by Versace, Bvlgari man by Bvlgari, Terre D' Hermes by Hermes (which would be a blind buy) and Gucci Pour Homme ll. Important thigs are good scent trail, longevity, projection, and something that can be worn in all four seasons. I currently own Boss Bottled, Ecko, Fahrenheit, 1 Million, Vera Wang Men, Armani Code, Le Male, La Nuit De L Homme, Live Jazz, Body Kouros, Allure Sport, and Bleu De Chanel.

    If you folks know of something I should get instead of what I am looking at that is in my allowed price range please let me know.

    Thanks in advance!

    Out of those listed, Terre d'Hermes would get my vote. Its versatile, all seasons, and different than anything you already have.

    That said, you should try it first if at all possible.

    I feel your pain. My wife hasn't put the breaks on me yet, but I bet she will soon. I fill my purchasing desires more with decants than full bottles though.

    Terre D'Hermes is a pretty good one if you can find it in that price range. I think maybe I would go with Cartier Roadster myself, since I love the mintiness, plus with spring in the air......

    Terre D'Hermes if you know you like dry Vetiver and somewhat synthetic & fizzy orange. It's a lovely fragrance and quite versatile not quite sure about blind buying it though. It will be different to anything you own at the moment which is also a plus.

    you could always tell her you'll get rid of some of your other bottles somehow (and perhaps do so hehe) you go along and maybe find something you like more.........

    not that that anwsers your question really but anyway, since I dont know to much about any of your listed fragrances

    In your set, my vote for A Men.

    But outside of the set, here are some cheap favorites (I bet you can buy two items if the sum is low):
    Azuree (Estee Lauder) citrusy leather, very strong. about $40 at Macy.
    Breath of God (Lush), strange vetiver. Stick $9, spray $32 (smallish bottle though).
    Stetson original, floral oriental, $20.

    And then you can visit some discounter, it's random but you could find something. Between TJ Max, Marshalls and Loehmann, I've recently seen Bulgari Black (rubbery) for about $40 , Arpege (woody, $25, a steal),and Anais Anais (dry floral) for $30.

    Terre D' Hermes is nice, but this being your last bottle for a while are you willing to risk the blind buy?

    Roadster or Terre d'Hermes, I can be swayed either way. I say that because of the weather.

    I would Suggest Terre d' Hermes if you never tried it go ahead
    it opens fresh and aromatic dries deep and Reseinious of benzoin
    and patchouli.
