NOPE! They don't. The cheapest I believe would be Davidoff Cool Water, if you pick it up from Musafirkhana. That would be arond 1100 - 1300/-

Went to lifestyle yesterday, tested Davidoff Cool water for the first time, as it seems to be most favorite here. It was around Rs. 2000/- for small bottle and 2800 for big bottle.

Nothing there was less then 2000/-

Default Heaven Scent! - What's your cologne?

So what's your scent? And why do you like it? What reviews have you got on it? Do you collect? Got compliments? What situation do you wear what? And what's the scent for that long drive in your car with your special someone?

My list goes as such

Hugo - Bu Hugo boss - Nice casual scent to be worn during a warm afternoon, not intense, long - lasting and soothing smells fresh all throughout! That's my summer afternoon casual wear.

Boss - By Hugo Boss -All time classic! Warm , intense, to be worn for a formal occasion or under that suit for that Assertive statement. Some girls love it and it smells like quite no other!! Purrfect while painting the Town red!! I Avoid during summer afternoons

Now - By Azzaro - Sporty, with a hint of lichen, not strong , but long lasting with an amazing fresh smell, great for office wear if you got to catch the train! lol It actually lasts through the commute! Gives of a great feel! Pairs with shorts and a tee better than Hugo does... hehe.

Planning to get Aqua Di Gio - Armani, Tomorrow - lets see how it goes, need an aqua smelling cologne to round of my Collection!!


What about you??
