Men's cologne recommendations?

My husband and I buy each other a new fragrance for Christmas every year, just for fun...and this year I'm having trouble picking one out. DH LOVES Acqua Di Gio, Avon's Driven by Derek Jeter, and Polo Blue.

I'm not sure what fragrance similarities those have, but they're his favorites. He doesn't like anything that's *too* light, aka wears off within an hour or two. :-P Anyone have any recommendations? :)

    No joke, I was about to say Cool Water too =D

    I agree, I like Polo Blue out of those three. I used to work the cosmetics counter at Walgreens and I've smelled quite a few colognes in my time =oB

  • Sometimes I amaze myself with my inability to type! Haha. I meant to specify that DH already has those 3 colognes, so I'm trying to pick something else similar. :-P D'oh!

    Cool Water is a good suggestion, I may give that one a try! I know I've smelled it before and really liked it.

  • My husband likes to wear Drakar, it's not my personal favorite but it's a very masculine scent and I couldn't ask him to change now because it reminds me of him so much.

  • Nautica Blue is my Favorite!

  • I like Aspen and isn't there one called Axe?

    Answer by Babylove76 at 11:27 PM on Dec. 3, 2008

  • I LOVE the Axe body sprays, but they're more for the younger guys (I don't know how old your husband is, OP :D). Like I loooove when my boyfriend wears Axe body spray, but I think it would be a little creepy on a 45 year old guy, yanno? But to each his own. I'm not sure how long Axe body spray stays on though.

  • Thanks everyone!! I am writing down the suggestions. DH has tried the Axe body sprays before and we both love them...I think I will get him a few of those in addition to a "real" cologne. (The minis make GREAT stocking stuffers!)

    Oh and if it helps, DH is 24. :) haha!
