    Default Looking to add one to my collection. Help please.

    Hi guys! I have 5 colognes that I like to wear. They are Code, The One, Eros, Sauvage, and Acqua di Gio by Armani. I especially like The One and Eros. Acqua di Gio used to be a favorite but I don't wear it so much now because it's kinda played out and my bottles old so I'm worried it probably doesn't smell as good as it used to. Well I'd like to get one more bottle and since Christmas is coming up my girlfriend said she would buy me one as a gift. But I don't know what to get!

    Is there anything I'm missing? I use The One for dates and when I go out at night and and I use Eros for like daily stuff like errands and hanging out. Sometimes I wear Sauvage to work. I don't really like Code because it's too perfumey. But since you guys are the experts I thought maybe you'd see an area I could improve in or maybe you have a good recommendation if I like The One and Eros. My girlfriend would probably go to Sephora or Macy's, or maybe Ulta, to buy me the cologne.

    Any suggestions guys?

    Thanks

    Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Profumo - updated version of the original and more masculine great everyday versatile fragrance.

    Maybe check out Chanel Bleu De Chanel if you havenít already, a new Parfum version was released last year.

    There is also Tom Ford Ombrť Leather 18 which would also serve you well if the style interests you.

    Almost forgot, Tom Ford Grey Vetiver EDP if you like Vetiver this is a good one smells very nice and sure to get you noticed!

    Hmmm. You could choose so many. I'd agree that Blue de Chanel is a nice mainstream scent that you could wear. Maybe also try Boss the Scent Intense, YSL La Nuit, or Mont Blanc Explorer.

    Another for this.

    I second the Bleu de Chanel recommendation. A solid reliable fragrance that works well in lots of scenarios.

    Also, welcome to Basenotes!

    Bleu de Chanel is great. Or Explorer. They will both fit the bill. Id say Chanel. But let the lady's nose decide i suppose.
    Itís tragic to think that heroic manís great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    My preference would be for a Chanel. There's a good selection to choose from - Bleu, Allure Homme, Homme Sport, Homme Sport Eau Extreme, Edition Blanche to classics like Egoiste, Antaeus, and Pour Monsieur.

    Adding Eau de Vetyver by l'Occitane and/or Mugler Cologne among the good vetiver, Jaipur Homme EDP among the good masculine vanilla options, while perhaps also Havana by Aramis, CK One Shock and/or AMen Pure Havane to (re) experiment a bit with different styles of tobacco
