    So I went cologne shopping for a new summer scent, and I came across this line at the mall. Apparently, its the world's most expensive cologne line. It smells pretty damn good. One spray lasts almost 2 days on your skin using natural oils for the scent versus alcohol like cheaper colognes. I like it, but definitely did not buy it.

    [​IMG]

    No.1 for Men - Understated yet distinctive, ancient Indian Sandalwood and Arabian Jasmine Sambac impart the scent of an accomplished, uncompromising character. $865 for a 50mL bottle. A typical bottle of cologne is 100mL

    [​IMG]

    1872 for Men - Classic petit grain, mandarin and lavender combine with the Roman Empire's sacred herb Clary Sage to bestow energy and invigoration. $310 for a 50mL bottle. A typical bottle of cologne is 100mL

    [​IMG]

    X for Men - The commanding character of X can be attributed to Orris, root of the Iris flower, prized in ancient times for its power and majesty. $355 for a 50mL bottle. A typical bottle of cologne is 100mL

    [​IMG]

    C for Men - A deep oriental exuding leather and precious woods echoing the hallmark spices of the House to reveal a dominant spirit and seductive strength. $375 for a 50mL bottle. A typical bottle of cologne is 100mL

    Customer review for the "C" from Sak 5th website: "."C" smells like a smouldering garbage dump full of burnt cigarette butts, burnt tires, and burnt garbage...just burnt...and utterly disgusting"

    I get spending a bit extra for quality, or having the best, but its cologne. No one is going to smell the amount of $$$ you spent on cologne. I get spending extra on scopes, optics, knives, tires, things where the amount of $$$ you spend shows, but I just don't get the life of the rich and pretentious.

    I've never once bought cologne. I hate the way they smell.

    Haven't worn cologne since middle school other than the random funeral and weddings. I find that most girls, which is why men wear cologne in the first place, like the smell of clean clothes and body than a man drenched in cologne. Show's that they care about how they smell and take care of their hygiene.

    This is true. The only girl I've had feeling for strongly enough about to date for longer than a few hours moved to SC from Cali.

    haha. You guys are awesome. Sometimes I wonder if girls really notice if I'm wearing cologne... Prolly don't. I def avoid being the dbag who you can smell their cologne from across the room.

    The things required to pull bitches
    I find some girls like cologne and some don't. they usually like it on dates and special occasions. I don't wear cologne, only wear it when I'm hitting the clubs or going out to a classy place. I wear deodorant on hot days or warm days. don't usually wear it on cold days, because I won't sweat or have bo. Usually the shower gel scent stays on me all day.

    Like I said I've found that most would rather smell a clean shirt than a ass load of cologne.
    Edit: And quite frankly I've gotten more numbers while fresh out the field smelling like ass than being all clean and cleaned up. Something about a little bit of sweaty smell seems to attract girls.

    Parades were awesome Meng. I didn't see you there though. I brought you pair so we can match. haha

    Summer = Girls in bikini's, bbq on the beach, and $$$ to spend on ammo and mods.
