I am from the old school. So following are my favorite colognes

1) Davidoff Coolwater ( very few come close this one)
2 Paco Rabonne-Black Bottle ( I carry it in my bag all the time)
3) Polo Sport
4) Farenheit ( Weird but good smell with a spicy clove tone, but good for occasional use)

Just bought two new ones.

212 MEN by Carolina Herrera and Polo Black.

Both very different; yet to like either; 212 smells promising!

You sure know a lot about perfumes man. My small box contains a Polo Blue, Azzaro Chrome, Davidoff Coolwaters Deep, Agua Fresca by Adolfo Dominguez, Ferrari Black, Roadster by Cartier, Nautica and 212 by Carolina Herrera (my current office wear). I would really appreciate if someone can give me some good suggestions on perfumes which have an aquatic hint like the Nautica does, and some other cool suggestions is simply great.
