    1 million as well as armani code are so widely used that I just don't wanna be another one wearing it. 212 Men from Carolina Herrera is really nice!

    Default Re: Which cologne would you choose from these 4?

    Givenchy PI. It's the only one I know of these, it's nice and, perhaps, not quite as popular as Code and 1 Million.

  11. #11

    Default Re: Which cologne would you choose from these 4?

    I'd go for Givenchy Pi. It's same sweet as 1 Million, less popular, but awesome for vanilla lovers. Of course if you do like vanilla.

    1 Million by Paco Rabanne - the perfect, clubbing scent ... a sweet, spicy, bubble-gum scent ... projection monster ... do not overspray ...

    Golddang it! Must you insert logic into this argument?
    Consider the phrasing:
    " My favorite colognes are . . .I want to know your opinion....which one is the best and why? "

    If that's not an opportunity to pontificate, what is?

    *Ahem*

    Well, strictly speaking the answer must be none of the above because none of them are colognes; they're EdT's. However I think it's safe to assume the OP meant " masculine fragrances" by "cologne" rather than " percentage of essential oils " in the concoction, so to continue, let's examine them one by one.

    *ahem*

    1. PR 1 million----Never tried it. The packaging was simply not gaudy enough for my taste. However I've smelled it from a mile away and I deduce that you have a sweet tooth, since all your choices, with the exception of 212 fall in the Oriental category. They're my favorite category as well. More to follow. . .

    2. Armani Code---A pleasant mod/bland version of Antaeus. While the latter is often classified as " evening wear " or recommended for romantic occasions; which obviously include proposing marriage or jumping into the Seine if she rejects you. I can't envision wearing AC for either. Nope. No windswept stormy nights waiting for the thunder to abate while you drink yourself into oblivion at a seedy tavern as you reminisce about lost loves.

    On the other hand, for those of you who feel romantic rapture or romantic brooding is out of your league and wish to get compliments from a female co-worker as you stand next to each other the water cooler, Armani Code is a good choice. You just have to be kinky enough to get into "officewear" scents.

    3. Givenchy Pi was created by Alberto Morillas, Spaniard lunatic/genius who also created 212 ( Apparently, he has a thing for math.)
    At one point Pi incurred the criticism of being 'over the top' but that was before A*men for men and Pink Sugar for women came into the scene.
    Well, whatever Pi is, it ain't "officewear." If you like it you might try Lomani's Ignition--pure revved up vanilla. These days I get my vanilla fix from Bulgari Black or Roma Uomo--or should a sophisticated mood befall me, Egoiste by Chanel.

    Moving on

    #4. Carolina Herrera's 212---Good stuff. I liked 212 H20 a bit better but the masses voted against me (discontinued)

    So, which one of your favorites is the best and why?

    Damned if I know . . .

    digger 51 is right on the money with his answer.

    As for me, I suggest you keep sampling other amber-vanilla Orientals, e.g; Jaipur Pour Homme. You might find more many, many more scents that you love, or go bankrupt, or whichever comes first.

    That's my best advice. However, if your question is going to give you insomnia, then continue with this poll or go to:

    My Antaeus can beat up your Armani.
