    Practically the only time I wear cologne is when I'm at another guy's house and he offers some, and then I'll put it on. Women just give me this shit. Family members included. Every four years or so, usually when I move I'll just have to purge and then I get rid of it. I offer it to my guy friends who use cologne all the time, and they always act disinterested, or as if my offering is gay. I guess most of the time it's just that they have the cologne they like. I've had times I wore cologne just to wear it, but off the top of my head they fit on one hand and were all fraternity events.

    Wasn't cologne popularized in France where the people wanted to cover up their stanky ass selves?

    Deodorant was invented for a reason. Use it. Love it. Embrace it.

    Yeah, that's not necessarily rebutting the gay argument.

    This is my main scent right now. I got a gift set for Christmas, so I use the spray, the body wash, and the lotion. Surprisingly, it doesn't come on too strong.

    As for men and cologne, I love it. I will put more effort into sex with a guy who sells good. I don't know if this is unfair, but I judge guys by how they smell. Polo Blue still reminds me of a guy I had a crush on when I was 14.

    I have a TON of perfume, though I don't often wear it. I'm on the hunt for the perfect scent. My favourites are Yves St. Laurent Cinema, and a street vendor bottle of Moroccan Vanilla that I got in Morocco or Dubai (can't recall which).

    On men, I'm not proud to admit this, but god help me...

    I have no idea why such a cheap 80s cologne does it for me, but that scent is hard-wired into my brain. It's not quite as bad as saying "Brute" is my favourite, but it's damned close.

    Although Polo is a nice guy smell, it is the cologne/after shave my father uses. So whenever I smell it I immediately think of him. Thou shalt not wear a perfume that your partner's parent has worn; so it is written.

    Funny enough I just read why they used so much perfume. Blood Work by Holly Tucker. It was, for one reason, to cover up their own odor. However they also thought perfumes purified the air of disease. They thought water would seep into the body to weaken their balance of humors (cold water would have a negative effect on mild temperament and lead to melancholic behavior; cold water to jolt one out of madness as the "hot" blood imbalanced harmony that way... something like that), as well as water supplies being tainted. So they washed only hands and faces, covered up with perfume. I can only imagine the smell of unwashed vagina mixed with cheap perfume. Like a sun ripened shrimp covered in Brut.

    I enjoy cologne but rarely use it. I think Ive had the same bottle of Aqua De Gio for a solid decade, that's how little I use. Even when I went out a lot in college and used much more frequently than I do now I only went through maybe a third of both the types I have still.

    I do one of three things, I don't use cologne at all and just rely on the deodorant by itself, match the deodorant up with the scent by buying the same brand, or use non scented deodorant.

    Focus:

    I use a few scents. One I currently use a lot is Kenneth Cole Vintage Black which is more of a winter scent.

    One I go back to often is a classic and outdoor manly scent, Fahrenheit by Christian Dior.

    I absolutely love Aqua di Gio, but every guy and their dog wears this, so I avoid it.

    Tommy by Tommy Hilfiger is a fresh clean citrus scent which is light on the nose and makes me feel young.

    Sometimes I don't use any scents at all other than regular old spice deodorant which seems to also do wonders with women as they particularly enjoy something you have to move in closer to smell.

    So do you like him to fuck the girl first and put his scent on her or do you prefer her and him at the same time so you can smell him firsthand?

    I'm pretty sure you meant your scent is this:
    Focus: I'm not actually sure what I wear. I have a friend who takes me cologne shopping every few months and finds things that work on me. I receive a surprising number of compliments on what she chooses, but the finer details (like, y'know, the name of the stuff) totally escape me.

    Alt focus: I wish I knew. There are some scents which actually make it almost impossible for me to concentrate, but I've never figured out what particular product generated them. Of course, if I can't remember the name of my own cologne(s), the odds of me remembering anyone else's are a million to one.

    Also #1, and maybe this is just me, but a while ago I remember jordan_paul talking about putting something scented on his balls pre blowjob, and violent disapproval from some of the ladies here. I don't know where I'm going with this point, but j_p, if you're out there, please chime in with your views.
    Also #2, the title of this thread is awesome.
    Also #3, a true playa only needs one cologne.

    Up to around 18 months ago I had around 15 bottles of different colognes in varying sizes.

    After considering the costs involved and having set myself the goal of saving more money, I haven't bought anything since and have steadily worked my way through most of them.

    I still have around 6 bottles left, including Armani Code, Burberry Brit (close to being finished), Bvlgari Aqua (half way through it), Dunhill (which I like wearing in WInter) and a few others.

    Fragrances do go "off" with time, particularly depending on how and where they are stored.

    Nowdays, Joop (The one in the pink/purple bottle which was huge in the 90's) tends to be worn in excessive amounts (in Melbourne, Australia anyway) by men of Middle Eastern extraction whom seem to think it attracts the ladies.

    One of my exes used to wear this:

    It made me want to bite her. Whenever she came around with that perfume I wanted to jump her bones. Too bad Bath & Body Works discontinued it. The last ex I had wore Chanel number 5. I didn't care for it. Her natural smell was quite lovely, as well as the the products to take care of her natural hair (coconut oil, shea butter, other shit that I can't name off the top of my head.)

    When I was signing the reams of paper I needed to sign for my new job last fall there was a line item about wearing too much cologne. It was in the "personal hygiene" section. I thought this was specific to our industry but a friend who started a new job in a completely different industry said he had to sign something specificly relating to wearing too much cologne.

    We used Polo cologne in boarding school to cover up the smell of ciggys and pot. God I hate the smell of that shit.

    I have a few bottles of perfume (though two are the same scent), but I only really use them for special occasions.

    I use this on a daily basis and get told I smell good all the time:

    When I do use perfume it's either

    or
    [​IMG]

    Perfume is oddly enough the one 'luxury' good I won't spend money on. One bottle of Daisy was a gift and I got another bottle of it and the bottle of Chloe when I was supposed to get my hair blown-out at Murale and the hairstylist didn't show up. Almost $200 of perfume for a missed $40 blowout? Not bad.

    Based on this thread, I have asked my wife to buy me a cologne she likes.

    Be afraid, be very afraid. I know I am.

    I wear Cologne on a daily basis, but like a few others have said, you gotta go easy on it. By doing that, you're not forcing the scent on everyone you walk within 10 feet of and it also keeps you from having to buy new cologne too often.

    And what are the fucking chances that out of the four colognes I currently own, Ballsack uses two of them. (the Marc Jacobs and the Yves Saint Laurent).

    That La Nuit de L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent is definitely my favorite though, it smells really damn good. It's more for when going out for the evening though, so I tend to not wear it super often.

    The other two I have are Burberry Sport that The Girlfriend got me last year for Valentines Day, and then a really small bottle of this David Beckham cologne that she gave me as a stocking stuffer for Christmas. The Beckham stuff actually smells pretty decent and is good for wearing around on a daily basis.

    I'm also a sucker for good Perfume on a woman, but only certain ones. I bought some Gucci perfume for her for Christmas this year and it smells great, I just wish she would wear it more often.

    I created a custom scent a couple of years ago at Memoire Liquide. You go in and talk with a perfumer about what you like, where you've been, and kind of get to know them, and then put together a scent that is totally YOU. It was a really cool experience.
    Mine is Lemon and Sugar Cane oil. There are a specific number of drops of each in a carrier oil, and the scent is ultimately delicious on my skin. Every guy who's ever been around me when I've worn it has complimented me on it.

    For a guy - The Guy doesn't do cologne very often...if ever...he has some Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab oils, but I don't know their names. He usually smells like Neutrogena Rainwater soap, a bit of sweat, and there's a leather scent there that I can't identify.

    My favorite store bought perfumes are Ralph Lauren Romance or Marc Jacobs Daisy. Both are girly without being crazy on me.

    I've worn Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue since college. It's marketed as a fresh, summery perfume, but something about the way it reacts with my body chemistry turns it dirty - it reeks of high end booze, drunk sex, and bad decisions. I was putting makeup on with the door open one time in college (common, since all my friends lived on the same hall), and a dude I had never met poked his head in with a look that I can only describe as pure lust and said, "WHAT is that SMELL?" Strictly a special event perfume, due to this, and my husband LOVES it.

    My everyday scent for the past at least 7 years has been Hermes Kelly Caleche. I have no idea what the notes are, my sense of smell is pretty dull, but to me it just smells like class and grace. My aspirations in life, thus, I adore it. Also, my mom has worn the regular Hermes Caleche my whole life, so I think of her when I put on my perfume in the morning. My mom rocks, so this is a good thing.

    My husband wears Polo Black, which I helped him pick out when we were dating. I have noticed he doesn't go through bottles quite as fast now that I'm stuck with him...

    I will always love Old Spice. It takes me back to the Valentine's Day dance when I was 16 and slow dancing with my crush. His crisp white shirt and that super manly smell... seriously. Will never forget it.
