    Default I hate how I have 10 colognes but I only like half of them :(

    When I first started buying fragrances, I made some poor choices. I wish I could switch them for ones I like, but anyway, here they are. These are the ones I don't like so much:

    Lacoste Challenge
    D&G Light Blue for Men (it's nice and I do like it, but it's a little too generic for me)
    Subtil by Ferragamo
    Canali Black Diamond (I really don't like this one )
    YSL L'homme (I thought I liked it at first, but there's something about it that bores me)

    Now here are the ones I have that I do like:

    Chanel Allure Sport
    Givenchy Very Irresistible
    Burberry London
    Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir (my favourite)
    Marc Jacobs for Men

    What do you guys think?

    i can understand why someone would think l'homme is boring but i personally really like the scent, and wouldn't actually mind buying it if it was cheaper. very versatile, safe and pleasing imo

    on the other hand, i really don't get the love for burberry london. smells way too much like a tree literally and that just freaks me out.

    I'm not versed well enough with colognes to explain what it is about L'homme that I don't like, but there's definitely something in it that doesn't work for me. I'm not sure I'd use the excuse that I find it boring though. I bought it because I liked it, but for whatever reason I tired of it quickly.

    As for London, I know there's green notes in it, but I get a lot of cinnamon and wine on my skin, and it just seems perfect for the Canadian winter. Soon enough I'll get to verify that

    One day hopefully I can swap some of the ones I don't like. I think L'homme would be extra easy to swap because of it's popularity.

    Yes it will be. This can very easily be construed as offering swaps outside the marketplace.
