    Default Advice, highly appreciated fragrance experts and non-experts needed

    I've been looking at these forums for about four days now trying to make a decision on which cologne I want to get. Needless to say I'm not any closer on making a decision.

    First I want a cologne that gets attention, and is a nose grabber.
    Spending limit is two hundred dollars maybe more if it's really worth it. But mainly I need to be an attention grabber. I don't want it to smell like absolut vodka either, the ones that start off as smelling that way but then have a nice smell are fine! If you could also recommend one for going out tht would be nice. I basically want one for during the day and one for going out to eat, clubs, movies, wherever.

    Here's what I have owned:
    D & g the one
    Burburry London
    Burburry touch (not a fan at all!)
    Ck euphoria (this one is pretty decent)
    Ck original I like this one
    Armani code (this one was really nice)
    Ck eternity

    Here's what I have been looking at:
    Fierce by abercrombie (I've worn this before, and this gets so much attention it's unbelievable)
    Prada by prada
    Amber by prada
    Infusions by prada
    Chanel de bleu
    Very sexy for him
    Dia man by amouge
    Straight to heaven by I don't know


    Anyway these are mostly designer brands I know, please don't be biased when you recommend something, or at least acknowledge it so I may know. Like I said spending limit is 200 and more if it's necessary. Hit me with your best shot! Or spray. Whichever.

    Hi!

    Here are two attention grabbers that I happen to LOVE:

    "Every day" (IMO): Chanel's ANTAEUS
    "Going out" (IMO): Histoires de Parfums' 1740: Marquis de Sade

    Happy hunting!
    My Top 5!!!
    1. 1740: Marquis de Sade, Histoires de Parfums
    2. Sweet Redemption, by Kilian
    3. Tirrenico, Profumi del Forte
    4. Je Suis un Homme, Etat Libre d'Orange
    5. Derby, Guerlain

    None of the stuff in my wardrobe is an attention grabber. But it seems you have already found the answer to your quest. If Fierce fits in with your needs, you should be thankful. Consider that $200 saved - to stock up on a few more bottles of Fierce if necessary. Welcome to Basenotes!

    Thanks everyone. I got gucci guilty and fierce. Both the bottles are poor though they need to be worked on!
