You can take it in any container you wish as long it doesn't exceed the TSA rule for carrying liquids.

3oz is the limit, they wont make an ex eption for cologne.

Are you really going to need any more?

You can only have it in your carry-on if it is in a container that is less than 3 oz. Can you get your cologne in a travel size?

For flights in Europe, you can take it as carry on (if purchased once you have passed through security). Do you guys have shops etc. after security?

We call them Duty Free shops (although they're not really cheap like they used to be ("in the good old days")).

Yes. We have shops in our airports.:) But then the OP would be faced with how to get the cologne BACK on the return flight. Unless he uses 3+ ounces of the stuff during one trip. In which case, I hope I'm not around. :)

that would work for the flight one way but on the return it would need to pass thru security.

Some of the Versace line is available in 1.7 oz sizes - I would just buy one of those for your trip -

for example, Versace Man is available here:

They sometimes have small sample tubes they give out where they sell cologne. Those are perfect for traveling if you can get your hands on one.
