We’re running out of one of our current favourite men’s colognes right now. I only learned that my husband really likes it too, both on me, and to wear. It was Dsquared2 Wood, and it was discontinued a few years ago. The reviews of its replacement are pretty bad, so it’s time to look for something else.
I decided to ask Facebook for opinions and am surprised at the response: 125 comments and counting. I do love a message string like this. Friends really do want to converse, share their opinions and be seen. I think the info here is a great snapshot and far too interesting to not share.
I’ll leave it to you to judge what kind of friends I have… And I’ll remove the names because that wouldn’t be right to leave them up!
My specific question was: Am looking for inspiration for the next bottle: what’s your favourite men’s cologne?
You can see that some of my friends are … jokers. Also, I was surprised (but shouldn’t be) how many of my women friends weighed in.

💁🏽♀️: This was one of O’s favorites. Not exactly unique, but it was a great scent on him. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terre_d%27Hermès
💁♂️: ‘Acqua di Gio’ by Armani – people (including a lovely young Frenchman on the Paris Metro!) stop me and ask me what I am wearing…
🧔🏽 It’s my fave

👨🏽: You and I like the same smells. I was just going to mention Oud (there are a variety but the classic Oud Wood is best). I also like and have Commes des Garçons Copper. It’s hard to find outside of Japan though. It also smells a bit too metallic and weird for most. The bottle is beautiful. I love bringing it out for inspection at airport security check.
💁🏽♀️: oh wow, thanks for the info. What other Oud smells do you like?
💁♂️: Hard to find but Jil Sander for Men is amazing!
💁🏽♀️: Aqua di Parma Intensa. It is so good and very discreet. And you like Italy. Just try it. There are also some divine shave products also.
