Men don't smell like men anymorePage 2 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
Haha, only catnip works like catnip on me...

I’m allergic to it and can’t use it myself, but I love the smell of Irish Spring on men. Mmmm….anyone remember those old commercials? Yum, yum.

I am too, but agreed, yes, and yes indeed!

This isn't the first I've heard good things about Burberry for Men, either. I'll have to bear that in mind next time I'm shopping.

Hi,

If I might chime in here with a couple of recommendations:

Hugo Boss
Hugo Boss

oh..and.....Hugo Boss :)

I alternate between HB "Soul" and HB "Dark Blue".

I am also a fan of the latest Davidoff "Hot Water".

And generally speaking one can never EVER go wrong with RL "Black".

I have had the most and best comments from Royal Copenhagen cologne. here is what they list

. The result of the following top fragrance notes: basil, bergamot and jasmine. The middle notes are: freesia, sage and clove and the base of the fragrance is: nutmeg, moss and cedar,

The same cologne never smells the same on any two men.


- give me back that Hai Karate Oriental Lime. That shyt was killa, yo??

LOL

They took a Puerto Rican shower in the men's room & over splashed the vending machine scent to mask the smell of sweat after a long work day. Common with women too........ the funky smell of perfume & BO is a killer.

BTW, for those who didn't know this.....smell is the biggest memory trigger of all the 5 senses.

Pull my finger and I'll send you on a Magical Mystery Tour......an olfactory odyssey of the mind.

It sounds to me rhonda 333 that these chaps were wearing the cheap stuff, the bogus knockoff colonges that smell rank to me. I suggest no one get those colognes, they are gross as h3ll.
I was always under the impression that all colognes go rank after about a year and to throw it out after that time.
I'm not a fan of Old Spice, etc. either.
But I was a fan of the Irish Spring commericals, always made me want to visit Ireland...and I did love the smell.
Colognes are notorious for questionable ingredients - nefarious ones that can disrupt your hormones.
Maybe why some give me a headache and make my eyes and nose run. Or why allergies act up.
Peppermints I think is refering to colognes made from essential oils but they have to be combined with other ingredients like beeswax or corn alcohol as most essential oils are too strong to be applied directly to skin.

All great scents for a man. Or a woman for that matter. I have never seen moss used as a fragrance though.

I never changed my smell. The good ole' spicey "Armani Pit", or "Leathery Englishman". I also sometimes wear "male sexual pheromones", and some other times, "Peebody". The great Unwashed, for wedding, and "hors swede extract" for funerals.

"Fromage Suisse" is a good one, too, much like "Kolnisher Toiletwasser".

"Canal", "Chanel", "Sewage Treatment Plant" and "Fish inyards processing plant" are all the rage in Hungary and in Albania.

------------------------------------

Seriously speaking: My favourite for smell of a woman is her own, god-given, natural scent. Nothing can get that, nothing can catch that. It's the best, the one ultra-intoxicating, sexual, sensual, mind-bending and penis-erecting smell.

If delivered right, the man will sink into a supoid consistency; he will feel both happy and excited, relaxed and at peace with the world. He will feel aroused in a way that is not sexual, but gives him an impression he is in a bubble of a devine glow, in the bosom of inifinite joy itself.

This I experienced on one date, on one casual encounter in the neighbourhood, when a bunch of us sat around on the steps of a porch, and with one girlfriend, over and over and over again, every time we met and entertained. She never wore cologne, scent, perfume, nothing. She was... the best for me. And the little boitch knew it much too well, too,that precious sweetheart of mine.

most essential oils are too strong to be applied directly to skin.


Lemon is and cinnamon can be depending if its leaf or not.The leaf is pretty benign and bark should never be used.
Most aren't irritating in a small amount.

I used to love Paco Rabanne in the 70s (cologne splash).
Very subtle back then.

I HATE the smell of "JOOP" - a guy at work wears it and it's like an 'entity' that follows you around a la an episode of Seinfeld

If a guy shows up w/ old spice on...I won't ever see them again!

The last guy I dated used old spice deoderant, and could not stand it. We only went out a couple months thought, and turned out the old spice was the least of his issues.

Hey Mr. Rax? Move over cuz I am that old as well to remember Brut! And my Son who is 24 actually loves wearing it. Something about that smell makes me swoon! lol..My ex used to drench himself in cologne and there was no bigger turn off. Men, if you are going to wear it, wear it, not let "it" wear "you"

I do believe cinnamon oil is what's used in those temporary lip plumpers. Which work! I have a couple, in the form of lip gloss.

But they can have interesting effects if your date kisses you.

I'll have to check out the Hugo Boss items, as well...

I’ve heard that men who smell of Bulgari shower gel are irresistible. :)

So you want a real mens smell................... Next time I go backpacking for a few days you are more then welcome to smell my arm pits when I get back.... So you know what a real man smells like.. Death would come swiftly.
Of course I would not wash up in the lakes as always.

^^GoodGuy? I am sitting here wondering if you would smell as bad or worse as the guy I met who had come directly from fishing. Sitting out in the hot hot sun, pulling fish off a rod...ewe! And he wanted to do it again? lol
