My go-to cologne is... Aventus by Creed.


I was drawn to this cologne because… I like scents. I do spend some time researching different male scents and encountered Aventus by Creed. It's a fairly unique scent with a somewhat fruity fragrance and does leave a good impression.


I have been using it for... six months now.


Describe the notes... it has hints of apple, blackcurrant, pineapple and bergamont.


My father used... English Leather and Brut.


I shop for cologne... Once a year.


Do share a funny cologne story… I believe my father's English Leather bottle still exists somewhere in the world beside the world's first brick cellular phone.


Were you to equate a cologne to a financial instrument which would it be? This particular cologne would represent the stock of a company with a sophisticated client base such as NCB.

My go-to cologne is... Bvlgari Man


I was drawn to this cologne because... it's a very cool and subtle fragrance (just like me).


I have been using it for... one year.


Describe the notes... It's quite woody, subtle with a hint of spice.


My father used... Chaps by Ralph Lauren.


I shop for cologne... every six months.


Do share a funny cologne story... Like most persons who start their cologne journey in high school it's normally one that wasn't too expensive and a bit overpowering. Needless to say it caused many watery eyes and a few headaches.


Were I to equate a cologne to a financial instrument it would be? Bvlgari Man Mortgage because it's the desire of every man/woman to own a home.

My go-to cologne is... Kouros Silver by YSL.


I was drawn to this cologne because… it evoked a natural sense of confidence and presence.


I have been using it for... about a year-and-a-half


My father used… Big Wheel.


Describe the notes… Fruity aroma with apple and a hint of sage.


I shop for cologne... I am a sporadic cologne shopper, buying three to four at a time and as such, I don't have a definitive time period to purchase.


Do share a funny cologne story… My first introduction to cologne was from my dad. I recall him saying that he was going to give me a big wheel for my birthday. I was happy because a few days prior I had run into a wall with my bicycle and the rim got bent and tyre dislodged. To my amazement or, better yet, bewilderment, the big wheel was not what I was expecting; it was a cologne! I however got a very good appreciation of colognes since then.


Were I to equate a cologne to a financial instrument it would it be... A certainty, confidence and peace of mind.
