Would like to get cologne?

Obvisouly there are hundreds, if not thousand type of colognes. I would like to get cologne but I have no idea were to start(types, where to buy it, etc). I would like one for semi formal uses, not a super fancy kind that you would only wear once nor an everyday use. is cologne something you can buy online?

    Some perfumes may stink on you, depends on body chemistry. So, even the best-selling fragrance, may not smell well on you, but best answer is to try on a sample, and see HOW it reacts on your skin.

    How I know this? I bought dh one of the best colognes, smell good on another guy, but it didn't on him.

    This girl @ work, also has BO. Everyone knows she comes to work, like she showered everyday, looking fresh right out of the shower, etc. but she's got BO. Why? Her perfume is causing her to smell like she stinks!

    Perfumes I hate: Scada, Michael Kors.

    I like Bulgary Mon Jasmin Noir.


    I also like Chanel 5.

    I bought Chanel 5, spray, but it was making me sick, it was just too powerful . . . .even though I loved it when I had a sample, so I took it back and got an exchange for the real perfume, that you only use very little, NOT SPRAYED ON.

    BTW: They go on my wrist, behind the neck, why waste expensive perfumes by putting them on your dress? How is your blood flow (veins) going to activate the scent?

    You are supposed to apply the perfume to your pulse points..those are the warmest spots on your body (with the excepting of your head). I've also heard that rubbing the perfume is bad..it "breaks" the perfume.

    Justin Timberlake: The 31-year-old says he is not a fan of overpowering aftershaves and prefers the just out of the shower smell. ''Call me crazy, call me weird but I like the smell of beer. I don't think men should overdo their aura or let people smell you before you walk into a room. I like a fresh out of the shower smell. ''I don't like smelling like flowers," he said.

    There's no "fancy" kind of cologne. Unless by fancy you mean designer.

    Yes, you can buy it online, but just beware that you could be buying an imitation.

    Target, Rite Aid and similar stores have colognes, but some are "old" types (meaning, the brand has been around forever and is now inexpensive) and some are knock offs of designer brands.

    If you want a nicer scent then you can go to Sephora or Macys and ask an associate to help you pick one out. They're more expensive (being designer) but it'll last for a long time if you're not using it every day. At Sephora and Macys you're allowed to smell the scents before buying them so you know what they smell like. You don't get that experience at a regular store. You can also ask the associate for his/her opinion based on what you're using it for and the kind of scents you like.
