I currently use Dunhill pursuit but am looking to change, any suggestions? Thanks
I am not a lady, however my ex-girlfriend really liked Paul Smith Extreme. She didn't want me getting her it because it's 'for men', yet she bought it for herself and used me as an excuse.
'Now when I'm in the shop buying Paul Smith I can say it's for you, when really it's for me...'
Paco Robanne is lovely, but it's something a LOT of guys wear, and it's extremely strong - and not a very natural 'masculine' scent, it has it's own distinctive, musky smell. I do actually really like it, but I have to say, after a while it can get a little much.
Ny number one will always be Armani Code. Armani Code to me is the thing that men should want to smell of - clean, fresh but with a hint of something very musky. It smells like something guys naturally smell of well, it just seems to compliment their skin and it's the kind of thing that when you breathe from their neck, you just want to bury your nose in deeper. I don't know one person who does not like this cologne.
Do not get the 1 million, have you noticed how so many users have just mentioned it? that isn't what you should be after because the scent is so noticeable and has become a bit boring. Stay clear from Cool Water, Code, Acque De Gio - they all seem to be a bit too common.
Get something YOU like, try going for a good brand e.g. Chanel or Tom Ford
They are generally have good quality perfumes. You need to go for something that suits your personality and you enjoy wearing.

It depends entirely on what your goal is. Given how it is typically used (for the purposes of attracting women), the opinions of women would be more important than the what you yourself like.
I use odourless deodorant though so what do I know?
I don't go out of my way to do things just to please other people so...
It's sad that a person should think this, as you should do things to make yourself feel good. Not to benefit others, it may be an addition but not the primary objective.
I'm a dude, and I'm personally not a major fan of Paco Rabanne - One Million, I've used it many times.. It's a bit strong and is more suited to a night time smartly dressed scene.
The scent is very very similar to Paco Rabanne - Ultraviolet and Ghost cologne for Men ..they were both released years before One Million, yet the similarities in the scents are very very close.
As it is coming to summer time I prefer to use Calvin Klein - Euphoria smells fresh and suits summer, usually 1-2 sprays is enough.
Others I've liked:
Calvin Klein - One
Armani - Armani Code
Andre Agassi - My Summer ..(this was a limited edition, by the former tennis champ, was amazingespecially for the summer!)
Clinique - Clinique happy
that's the ones that I can remember so far, I'll have a look for ones I missed
