Call me old-fashioned but, in colognes, I have never been able to like anything other than "Davidoff Cool Water"

Deos, use a plenty of range. Right from Axe, Nivea to whatever I can lay my hands on.

That's great on women; the guy cologne isn't that great imho, going by feedback

You might want to try Aqua Di Gio, Armani

Thanks dude. Looking for something under 1k since I already bought 3 expensive ones. Just checked with my wife and have couple of unopened perfumes at home.
CK one and 2 bottles of UCB HOT. Might try any of these for daily wear and use the expensive ones for meetings.

I did not find Alfa perfumes to last as long as the originals.
Would love if anyone could confirm that with their own experience

Bought this a few days back at Shoppers Stop, Mantri Mall, by redeeming around 7000 odd reward points on my Citibank credit card. The balance payable was 1500 bucks, which was a good deal.

I have a query though. I usually buy my perfumes from Shoppers Stop and check the date of import and best before/use by date.

But in Blore weather, the perfumes don't seem to last very long. When i was in Chennai, i used to buy from Shoppers Stop too, but there, the perfume smell used to last almost through the whole day.

Is the reason for this, the blore weather being dry or is it the quality of the perfumes? I doubt the latter though.

Deos: Axe,nivea etc (i don't exactly spray it onto the underarms because i felt it will darken.)

Perfumes: CK, Tommy and a few others.

The main problem for me is that i don't think that the perfumes last long and i end up smelling like...ummm..myself .

Deos : Brut mostly but i have recently tried FOGG as well after being bombarded by advertising and i really liked them - they are more perfume than gas as per their ads and hence are far far stronger and i can vouch for that

Colognes : Polo , Burberry , Boss

No flipkart also has multi-sellers nowadays so you need to check their rating and feedback before you purchase from them.If you still want to purchase,look for WS retail.That is flipkart's own brand..They will sell original ones i guess.

If you are trying online for first time,Its better to go with perfume2order.com.

I have recently ordered davidoff coolwater 125ml EDT from a site called buyanyperfume.com I am not sure whether it will be original or fake till i get it in hand.

I was always content with just using Roll-on, I started using Fogg deo and i liked it. In fact this pulled me towards the world of fragrances.

I bought the following so far.
1.David beckham intense instinct- Melon is the dominating note.(Perfume2order.com)
2.Bogart pour homme- Very strong and long lasting.Good for winter and special occasions.(Ebay-seller with very good rating so bought it)
3.Benetton cold- This is reasonably long lasting 4-5hrs on skin and more on shirt. Neither like it or dislike it.(Flipkart-Ws retail)
4.Got lot of deos like Fogg,Provogue,lamborghini Forza.etc.

Just ordered the legendary Davidoff coolwater.

There are only 2 of them which I use regularly.

1. Davidoff Cool Water - all time favourite

2. Draker Noir - another all time favourite.

3. Ralf Lauren 4 - In between times.
