    Default Kohls gift card, was going to grab a cologne...Any suggestions?

    So as the title states, I have a gift card for Kohl's. I was thinking about getting a cologne, but I am not exactly sure what I should get. I have been there and smelled a few and nothing really stands out that much to me.

    I am relatively new at this, up until about a month ago I only had one cologne bottle. I have bought several in just the past week. Kind of addicted for some reason.

    Current Collection
    Acqua Di Gio
    212
    True Religion
    Versace Dreamer
    Versace Pour Homme
    Kenneth Cole Connected
    Kenneth Cole Black

    Kohl's has
    Azzaro Chrome
    Davidoff Cool Water- not the cheapest I've seen
    Burberry Brit
    Givenchy Pi
    CK Eternity
    Dunhill Fresh

    Let me know

    I'd order at Kohls.com - they've got a much bigger selection (not great by any means, but way better than their stores) and are offering "buy 1, get 1 1/2 off" on a lot of scents.

    A few notable ones I noticed with a quick glance:

    Boss Soul - nice sweet spice and dark cherry vibe
    Versace Man - grape and tobacco, odd but nice
    Boss #1 - old skool manly honey
    Versace L'Homme - oldskool manly classic citrus chypre
    Hugh Parsons Blue - very nice classy fresh scent.
    Lacoste Elegance - interesting mix of chocolate and raspberry.
    Boss Pure - one of my favorite ultra-clean watery scents. Fresh grapefruit and sea water.
    Perry Ellis M - a spicy cinnamon heavy scent
    Azzaro Pour Homme - a classic.
    ***For sale:

    Iris Pallida 50ml

    Ungaro I 75ml

    and more!

    Burberry Brit would be a good choice IMO.

    agree ... Burberry Brit for Men by Burberry - Upon application, one is greeted with a spirited, spicy citrus, furnished by the green mandarin, bergamot, ginger and cardamom. This zesty confluence meanders to its middle, where a spicy wood, from its cedarwood and nutmeg, joins in creating a pleasant, vanillish aura. This melange is slowly infiltrated by the lovely, wild roses, adding a powdery dimension to the heart. As the citrus dies away and the heart's spicy sweetness prevails, it joins the strengthening base, with its grey musk, tonka bean and oriental woods, to enhance the powdery vanilla superimposed on a woody, musky background. This pleasing and complex composition renders a clean and fresh vibe, and has good projection and longevity.

    I'd go with Givenchy Pi, sweet vanilla in the drydown, extremely synthetic but nice.

    I'd go with Pi, but if you wait you can find it much cheaper.

    Perfumania has a sale right now: $48 (plus shipping, free over $50) for a 3.4 oz.

    Out of the ones you listed, I like Cool Water and Brit. Also, I know Kohls is the exclusive store for Swiss Army's scents too. If you like the fresh fougere, Cool Water type fragrances, give Swiss Army Classic a try. It's a cheapie, but is nice and refreshing.

    Also, +1 on the Versace Man recommendation. I agree with the grape powder & tobacco description. (I think the angelica & saffron produce the grape vibe). Anyway, it's different, and works well in the spring.
