I thought you lovely ladies might be able to help me. I want to buy cologne/fragrance for a guy about 35 that is around about $50. I know that rules out a lot of the more expensive brands but with the discount perfume places around you can get some good deals. I have no idea what is nice and what is not.
No idea what type of fragrances the guys likes either!

Please help original.gif

I recently bought DP Paco Rabanne's 1 million. I quite like it! It was about $65.00 though you may find it cheaper online original.gif

Perfumes and cologne are such a personal thing.

I brought DH a 'new' fragrance once and he has hardly worn it.  Now I just stick to the tried and tested one he always likes.

Acqua Di Gio by Georgio Armani is my fave and you would probably be able to find it in your price range online...

I lurrrve Rochas Man. It is really different, but truly divine.  Unfortunatelyit comes in a bottle shaped like a buttplug, and a bright pink shiny box, but if you get past that, it is so very worth it.

I smelt the new Calvin Klein Encounter the other day and it smells so good.

Alexander Skarsgard is the spokesman for it and anything that he is attached to is ok by me wink.gif
