Do you prefer mens or womens colognes best?

I've come to realize over the last several years that I prefer to wear mens colognes more than most womens. Partly, it's allergies. Most florals are a problem for me. It just seems womens stuff is usally flowery or powdery. What's your preference? I love CK1, one of the true unisex scents, and I just put on Hugo Boss :)

  • i like mens colognes a lot cause like you i cant do the floral scents and stuff but my favorite perfume is angel the next time your at the mall you should try it, its a nice smell that almost smells like you got it from being close to a man buts still got a feminine smell to it that doesn't smell like your grandmother. for me its the perfect balance

  • That's a great point. I use way less of the mens stuff and it seems to stay longer.

  • My husband noticed tonight when he got home... he said "What ARE you smells a little like Hugo Bos...but different, better?"..LOL He doesn't believe me when I tell him it is his. It works.

  • Do you know who makes Angel? It def. sounds like one to try. I have to go with someone so they can get a squirt on a card and bring it to me. Perfume displays are problematic for me. Often they trigger allergies, or even a migraine. I will check this out tomorrow, Thanks!
