i can't remember where i read it, but i seem to recall someone mentioning covering with Acqua Di Gio to get a huge range. is that right?

do y'all find that using different covers have different range, and is there a certain cover you use that gets use the greatest range?

Colognes for Men
(3x) Calvin Klein - Euphoria - http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Sean-...-2209.html
(3x) Christian Audiger - Ed Hardy's Love And Luck - Fun, rich and fruity (yet masculine), daytime, very playful, get many compliments, commonly used

(3x) sean john - unforgivable - citrus fragrance, awesome, good projection, runs a close second to Euphoria
(2x) Juicy Couture - Dirty English - deep cedar/woody smell, calm, relaxing, and has a smell that beckons people around you. "Let's go back to my place for some fun."
(2x) Joop - Joop Homme - Bold and a bit on the wild side, one spray (two MAX), very STRONG scent and overpowers my Scented Alpha-7 easily, very unisex smell, excellent sillage + projection + longevity
(2x) Liz Claiborne - Mambo for men -
(2x) Paco Rabanne - One Million - classic, excellent sillage + projection + longevity
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab - Snake Oil - smells good on me
Bruno Banani - Made for Men -
Burberry - B urberry Weekend -

Creed - Millesime Imperial - high end
Creed - Virgin Island Water - summer seasonal
David Beckham - Pure Instinct - fresh type seductive scent, very cool and inviting smell. "You wanna come over for a few drinks?"
Dior - Hypnotic Poison - of interest, maybe unisex
Escentric Molecules - Escentric 01 - huge pricetag, 65% Iso E Super, and the rest is a blend of other scents. From what I hear, it's quite impressive
French Connection UK - FCUK Him - real soft, unique, very relaxing, cheap on Amazon
Givenchy - Play Intense - deep subtle scent with sweet undertones, will certainly be appreciated. "Whether you come or go doesn't matter to me. Let's enjoy the moment."
Love Potion Magickal Perfumerie - Creole Man - Green
Love Potion Magickal Perfumerie - Pendragon - Aqua
Love Potion Magickal Perfumerie - Sorcerer For Men - foody/sweet
Love Potion Magickal Perfumerie - Teachers Pest - Spicy
Love Potion Magickal Perfumerie - UN for Men - Foody, too sweet for me, but i recognise so many women who just love it. Works like a magnet
Love Potion Magickal Perfumerie - Voracious - Blended with pheromone
Michael Storer - Star - winter seasonal
Polo - Explorer - classic
Succes de Paris - Fujiyama Homme - Light fruity/herbal scent, scored some positive remarks from the asian crowd, low longevity, cheap on Amazon
True Religion - drifter
Versace - Homme - everyday

I'll spray anything apparently...

After my scent-searching, this is what I found to have the most silage and attraction towards.

I live in Washington, so the seasons love to change.

Spring: Issey Miyake - L'eau d issey, L'eau par kenzo, and Bvlgari - pour homme

Summer: Bvlgari - Aqva, Hugo Boss - Hugo ,Azzaro - chrome, and Nautica - Pure

Fall: Chloe & lamar - Unbreakable, Victororia's secret - very sexy pour homme, Antonio Banderas - Antonio (honey comb bottle)

Winter - Lancome - Hypnose, Burberry - Brit, Givenchy - Pi, Dirty English, Bvlgari - pour homme extreme, and Antonio Banderas - The golden secret

Give them a whiff at your local perfumery Big Grin

I also noticed that Dirty english + primitive Dirty gave me a unique and desirable scent Smile
