My go-to cologne is... Bleu de Chanel.

I was drawn to this cologne because... this scent is a classic, in my eyes, and is also a very versatile scent. It is good for daytime and night-time splash and the fragrance gives off an aura of sophistication. I'm always complimented on this scent.

I have been using it for… over two years.

I shop for cologne... It's an ongoing activity, a staple to pick up or explore on overseas travels.

Do share a funny cologne story... The usual mishap and misguided nozzle and spraying-in-mid-air-or-in- the-eyes moments happened once too many and now much care is taken as ridding cologne from the eyes is an arduous task.

Were I to equate a cologne to a financial instrument it would be... Top-notch! AAA rated bonds! Which of course you can secure via PROVEN Wealth.

My go-to cologne is... Mr Burberry.

I was drawn to this cologne because... The scent is not overbearing and it's light, but masculine. Most importantly, it does not affect my wife's sinuses!

I have been using it for... the last two two years. I do experiment but once I find a fragrance that is light and the scent meets with my requirements, the approval of my wife and maintains the masculinity of my male musk I will purchase.

I shop for cologne... Ongoing and I try to maintain a supply at every opportunity from local retail or during travel.

Do share a funny cologne story... Rushing to get ready and picked up my wife's bottle instead of mine. I proudly wore it for the day ready to defend why I was smelling extremely delicate. Lesson — check before spraying!

Were I to equate a cologne to a financial instrument it would it be... Steady, reliable and extremely rewarding. These are key attributes I would equate to having a desirable financial instrument and that of a cologne. In the selection you, deliberate and decide based on it meeting your needs. The financial instrument would be — no bias (smile) — PROVEN Select Money Market — it performs and continuously delivers great returns.

My go-to cologne is... Burberry Brit.

I was drawn to this cologne because... it is subtle but commands attention.

I have been using it for… over 15 years.

The wearing of cologne is not a family tradition… my father and grandfather did not use any fragrance so I had no prior reference and my selection was not infuenced. I had to find and test for a fragrance that complemented my natural chemistry.

I shop for cologne... every week.

Do share a funny cologne story… Ever so often the fragrance is modified and the variation can be slight. I learnt this the expensive way when I reached for two bottles on the run only to realise after the first spritz that, nope, this isn't for me. Tried again but eventually gave up and went back to my trusted scent.

Were I to equate a cologne to a financial instrument it would it be... Blue chip stocks as this cologne continually pays dividends.
