    It may not be the bottle entirely, but the packaging for Kilian fragrances is pretty awesome.

    In my limited experience so far with fragrances, Midnight in Paris is one of my favorites.

    I don't know if is the coolest but it's somewhat unique in design - Nemo by Cacherel



    Also C'est Magique Homme is unique - by Kesling



    The bottles by Stephane Humbert Lucas 777 are also beautiful IMO

    Welcome to basenotes! Just an FYI: these things you think of as "colognes" are actually perfumes. Maybe you're thinking "But I'm talking about men's stuff!" They're perfumes. Cologne is actually the weakest kind of perfume (EdC, or Eau de Cologne). 99% of what you think of as cologne is actually Eau de Toilette (EdT) or Eau de Parfum (EdP). EdC, EdT and EdP: they're all perfume

    The coolest looking bottle I own is this: Interlude Man. It looks like a million bucks and smells twice as good as it looks!

    Oh, and my 2nd coolest looking bottle: L'Air du Desert Marocain by Andy Tauer.



    I guess I'm a sucker for the cobalt blue glass! That's what these are, right? I love the look.

    Yet another vote for Idole EDT. Hard to do better.

    Here in the US, "cologne" was just a way to say perfume for men. (In Europe, man are perfectly happy to wear perfumes). Idole is for men, btw, so it can certainly be called cologne, if one so likes.

    Yup. L'eau d'Issey is a perfume (a perfume for men). I dont know when slang took the word Cologne and applied it to all men's scents, but at least in the U.S., that's what most people call men's perfume, but it's wrong. People refer to all women's scents as perfume, and that's correct, but all men's scents are also actually perfume.

    Think of it this way: Cologne is actually a kind of perfume. Perfume is all of it. Eau de Cologne is weak perfume (lowest concentration, actually) and there are Eau de Colognes for both men and women. Cologne doesn't mean "for men."

    Interestingly, I've also noticed that some people call men's perfume After Shave. That's wrong too.

    I believe cologne can be a style, a strength, or generic description for fragrances. It depends on the context.

    I like the Dior Homme series bottles. Sprayers are unbeatable as well.

    Amouage bottles are stunning. The caps are so heavy. Another brand with such heavy caps is Clive Christian. But Amouage's bottles are much prettier than Clive Christian's.

    It smells fantastic! It's very boozy, has a prominent rum note but still gives you a nice woodsy scent. You should definitely sample or blind buy this.

    It's very nice. I also think Spicebomb's is unique (not particularly beautiful).
