    Default Newbie Suggestions

    Hey everyone new to this site but from the few post I've checked out y'all know y'all's colognes. Lol I need some help my friend just got a job at belk at my local mall and might be able to hook me up with a good discount. I currently have a few different colognes(true religion drifter, Gucci guilty intense, the green big horse polo, some kind of curve, and nautica voyage) I just got big into the more expensive colognes. Right now I know I want the regular old Acqua di gio, as well as polo blue sport. I can afford to get one more to be good for a while. What do y'all suggest? I normally like the "sportier" scents like the green polo, but am open to other suggestions. Thanks everyone

    I've also been considering picking up the Burberry Brit summer edition off this website, seems like a good deal 3.3oz bottle for 35.00, I've heard good reviews.

    What sporty one would you guys go with out of the polo blue sport, Gucci sport, or the Brit summer? Any suggestions will have to be colognes that are carried in a department store like Macy's as I don't have much access to any other places.

    Macys carries the Aramis line, which is not too expensive and has some good stuff. The sporty one is New West, though JHL could also qualify. My favorite is Aramis 900, but it is a different style, woody resinous.

    Well the Acqua di gio is one of the colognes that I like that aren't sporty. I also like my true religion and Gucci intense. I'm willing to pick up another "stronger heavier" scent. But I for sure want another sport as those are typically my favorites.

    There are a LOT of sporty colognes in the designer world. Just get out to the counter and ask a rep or start spraying.
