Ralph Lauren Polo Blue

As I mentioned in my last post, I have a hard time buying gifts for guys. Girls are so much easier! When my mom mentioned that my brother needed cologne for Christmas I thought, "Cool, that'll be easy!"

Not so much.

Somehow I have never bought cologne before. So I didn't really know where to start...other than the Sephora in my local JCPenny. Luckily I had a great staff member to help me with my task.

All of the scents I was smelling reminded me of perfume, too feminine. Then I came across Ralph Lauren Polo Blue. It was just right! For a 2.5 oz Eau de Toilette Spray I paid $52. Not too bad. And if you buy this through Sephora's online store, you will get free shipping!

Now I just need to wait until December 25 to see if HE likes the scent. As will all fragrances--for men or women--they smell completely different on different people. Let's hope it works out...

yes cologne and perfume are always hard. You know they normally have every kind you can imagine at Loehmann's so you can get them cheaper too! You can't test them there though so you have to know ahead of time what you want.

Thanks for following and entering my contest!

Buying cologne is SO hard. I had this same trouble buying for an ex boyfriend of mine. After smelling so many scents, they were all blending into one. I finally settled on a scent by Yves Saint Laurent. I loved it, but can't remember what it is now... it was awesome though. :)

Oh, and ps... I hope your brother likes it! :)
