From: "alexander koryagin"

about "Earth or the Earth"

ak>>> [...In reality, women use Chanel perfume to attract men. And men's
ak>>> cheap cologne attracts women]

RW>>> ...Women use Chanel perfume to attract, while women succumb to
RW>>> men's cologne.

ml>> "cheap men" or "cheap cologne"?
RW>> "men's" implys ownership...

IMHO "men's" can serve as an adjective.

ml> yes and "cheap" can be a modifier of "men" or "cologne"...

ml>> Women use Chanel to attract but succumb to men's cheap cologne.

RW>> Both your and my versions are correct...

ml> and mine is short enough to make a tagline from ;)

Here is another variant, which IMHO smoother:
Women spend heaps of money buying Chanel, but finally succumb to cheap colone.

[...My smiler has temporarily broken]
Bye mark!
