I use C.O. Bigelow BLACK daily. Really like it.
I bought the WHITE and do not like it.Probably will trade it or PIF it someday.
I did about the same thing after reading your post. Went into Bath & Bodyworks with the wife and she picked out a few sprays for herself. I saw the C.O. Bigelow cologne display and asked the wife what she thought. She tested the Green, Black and White and handed me all three versions and said "These ones right here!" She really likes the green and with them buy 2 and get 1 free, they are like $13 a bottle. A great deal and for me, wearing something that I like, and the wife likes, is just icing on the cake.
Can you describe what these C.O. Bigelow colognes smell like before I take a trip to Bath & Bodyworks to smell the testers?
