Burberry Touch For Men
hey , guys, give me some tips.
fresh+powdery+good sillage+very complimented+for men (not unisex) colognes.
Burberry Touch For Men
From your description, the first thing I thought of was Tiffany for Men. It can be bought directly from Tiffany. It is a fresh but powdery masculine scent that is very similar to Pour Monsieur from Chanel, but better. Another in this category that has a slight more herbal base is Monsieur Givenchy - a very fine, lemony, men's cologne chypre with a slight powdery touch. Pure elegance.

Habit Rouge is the first one that comes to mind...

Noir by Tom Ford or it's BETTER predecessor, Habit Rouge by Guerlain (the Eau de Toilette).

Another for Habit Rouge
Good calls! Another not quite as powdery perhaps but more fresh talcum vibe with good projection is Prada Infusion d'Homme .
Tiffany for Men fits that bill perfectly. Habit Rouge does, too, but I like Tiffany better.
Current Top Five:
1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
5. Creed Original Vetiver
Midnight in Paris(but has a burnt rubber smell), CKN2U is like cinnamon rolls and baby powder, and D&G the one gentleman is like a talc with bubble gum.
Bleu De Chanel
I would agree with Tiffany for Men. Also Habit Rouge as well.
Creed Bois du Portugal may also be worth a look, although not as "fresh"
Current Summer Favorites:
1. Creed - Original Cologne
2. Xerjoff - Nio
3. Creed - Aventus
4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
5. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
6. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
7. Montale - Aoud Legacy
8. Dior - Homme Sport 2012
9. Tom Ford - Rive d'Ambre
10. Creed - Virgin Island Water
Check out Bvlgari BLV and BLV Notte too. BLV was one of my most complimented ever, Notte is basically the same but a little less powdery with a light chocolatey note.
My Ultimate Top 5:
Paul Smith Man (2009)
Burberry London (2006)
Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
Arpege pour Homme (2005)
As others mentioned Midnight In Paris and Habit Rouge are must haves IMO.
Seasonal favorites :
Winter : The Dreamer & Burberry London
Spring-Autumn : Bvlgari Pour Homme & Prada Man
Summer : Bvlgari Aqva & Aqua Fahrenheit
All-Rounders : Terre D'Hermes & Bleu de Chanel
I got a bottle of this the other day and thought it was the best powdery barbershop talc powder frag I have ever whiffed...
I was born to shoot guns and smell good doin it!

Habit Rouge or Dior Homme, as others have suggested.
Dior homme sport 2012... It's fresh up top with a very powdery dry down
Not the greatest sillage but as far as the rest, Gucci II may fit the bill.
+1 for Heritage - Guerlain
+1 for Habit Rouge - Guerlain
+1 for Tiffany For Men
Maybe try Burberry Brit for Men . . . or a cheapie, Versace Baby Blue Jeans.
