    Default The Top 3: Of Your Wife, Girlfriend, or Significant Other

    I find the UnderWear Falling and Compliment Getter threads to be a bit ridiculous. Most women that I know don't give a damn about what some random dude is wearing and would never think to compliment them on a cologne. If anything, its a polite way of saying "You are Cologne Guy". But that is a whole other topic.

    So how about what are your wives, girlfriends, or significant others (gay or straight) 3 favorites. These could be ones you own, used to own, or merely sampled. The ones that make her (or his) toes curl and get a real positive/animalic reaction.

    Girlfriend's Top 3:

    1- The One
    2- La Nuit
    3- DHI

    The girl I have been dating seems to love Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin, so I have been wearing it with her lately. In the past though, seems like La Nuit, and Polo Double Black are unanimous favorites.

    Slowly going through the wardrobe now "filtering" as to what the current new girlfriend likes. So far it's mostly dislikes!
    Winners so far:

    1) New Haarlem
    2) Rose 31
    3) Green Irish Tweed

    1. Aged Patchouli Oil

    3. Kiehl's musk
    It is true that fish stink. It is also true that the river is
    beautiful. But the river would be beautiful despite the fish. What
    is noxious remains so.

    That is not to say that sh*t is not useful when buried in the wheat
    field. Bread made from the field tastes sweet, wine from the arbor
    sweetest. All things serve a purpose, but that is no reason to
    glorify what is abominable. A man must still watch where he walks
    and keep his sandals clean.

    I'm not seeing anyone in particular, but women I've dated have been most enthusiastic about these:

    - Curve
    - Hanae Mori HM
    - 3rd place is a tossup between Gucci Pour Homme II and Millesime Imperial

    If it weren't for the fact that I can only wear MI in the summer, it would probably rank even higher. If temps aren't above 75, MI disappears on my skin. But on a warm to hot day, it lasts and lasts and lasts.

    It's interesting how different different people's tastes can be. These three are the favorites of a woman I dated last year:

    - Royal Oud
    - Curve
    - Interlude Man
