There were many perfume ateliers in our town for the tourists. Girls would go in at lunch and get sprayed. One time I was in one with my sister. The demostrator had my sister hold her arm out and sprayed her wrist (why wrist?). My sister sort of rubbed her hand on my hair as a joke and I had the smell on me. Anyways, I didn't like smelling like that but later in class a girl said I smelled really good and had her friend smell me.

I have no idea what it was. It was suppose to attract men but it worked on women. Other than that I just smell freshly scrubbed with soap and water. For some reason companies put fruit in shampoo but not sure if its good to smell like an apple.

I think the true fact is they do not understand how to use or when.I was lucky a lot of women in my life taught me.Well Asian and European.American ladies it seems forget to talk and teach.Men do listen.

Were these guys straight? However they are called metrosexuals and I for one would find that kind of scent a turn off. A little masculine sweat and pheromones is much more enticing. Women are the better judge of mens colognes and sometimes the guys dont smell it on themselves otherwise they would not be so liberal with the dosing lol!. I love Old Spice, Aramis and Brut.

A puerto rican shower is when someone puts on cologne or deodorant instead of showering
its a derogatory and offensive term if you ask me, who ever used that term is a Jag off.


hmm... it should be French shower then lol.

I remember using Andron by Jovan 30 years ago. It supposedly had pheromones in it. Didn't do my geekiness one bit of good.

Now for my present metro self, some of my favorites are Instinct by David Beckham, Pal Zilari, Play Intense by Givenchy, Issey Miyaken, and Usher. Most of my favorites have citrus notes. I have 7 bottles right now.

I just have a shower and scrub clean with soap. No deodorant. Partners over the yeaes have commented that I don't smell even after working out or a hard day of hiking. I have little fat. There's exceptions but thinner people tend to have less body odour...they don't sweat as much doing everyday activities.

Now and then I receive some scent as a gift...I'll pour a small bit down a drain freshen it up.

A study was done years ago - I think maybe by Playboy to determine the most arousing smell for a man...
Turns out it was Cinnamon rolls.
-Methinks that's because it means someone stayed for the night and is making breakfast?

OK Guys, before you get too old school - you know what was most arousing smell for the woman was?
A New Car.

I did read that cinnamon was a turn on for men.....but new car smell for woman. That's debatable....Lol I heard it was licorice followed by cucumber/ cinnamon as well.
Personally....I find those scents to be more 'comforting' rather arousing.

For me, it's the intoxicating smell of a man fresh out of the shower ( I might have repeated myself on this) ........but it's all that wet hair, water droplets slowly making their way down his chest.... yummm.......makes me wanna do bad things....hehe

I was trying for the smell of money.

I believe the smell of money is a powerful aphrodisiac.



Money, there's a lot of ink for decoration, as well as special chemicals added for things like the watermark. This gives it a rather unique blend of smells.

The initial post of this thread intrigued me, so I've been asking around, and yes, sniffing around for a couple of weeks.

The OP is right. You can almost guess the attitude of the men by their smell. Now remember, I live in Arizona and it was 84 most of the day today, so there are many regional differences, but the young men all smell like sweat or one of the musk based colognes. The older men are a little more diversified; they smell like Old Spice, sweat or the same musk stuff.

A little more examination and a few direct questions resulted in an obvious conclusion: they didn't buy the crap, it was given to them by a friend, lover, or relative. Men smell like the women in their lives want them to smell. If it came from Mom, it may be Old Spice. If it came from Sis, who knows? Maybe one of those musk things. A lover will sample several and see what she likes, then get it and give it to him.

So, check it out. Most men buy what their Dads bought if they haven't been converted by a woman in their life. Some men simply smell like their bath soap or deodorant.

But let a woman get into their life....

I'm from the "Old Spice, English Leather era too, but I have grown to learn that it's better not to have an odor at all so as not to offend anyone. That way everybody's happy!

I work in an environment that forbids scents, when I go out it is usually to places that forbid scents.
So I appreciate a nice well applied perfume or after shave.
I have a strong sense of smell, some people dosed in scent can make me run for fresh air, but on the other hand I will be walking down the corridor where I work and pass some man who smells heavenly and do an about face and follow for a moment just to inhale his fragrance.
Usually it is just a man smell, nothing added!
Spray your favorite scent up in the air then walk thru it, done! No need to bath in it.
My mother in law used to buy my brand of perfume and keep it in her drawer, she would just smell the bottle sometimes because she said it reminded her of my kids, the scent rubbed off me onto them.

Msg.1:

I think what you smelled is their deodorant. Most men doesn't wear cologne, they thinks it is sissy. But deodorant is a must.
But I could be wrong......................

Well Rhonda, be glad that they had cologne on at all! LOL! The men that cross my path have become quite lackadaisical in courting period. It seem that chivalry has gone by the wayside. I enjoy looking at a strong well dressed man that smells good. I was at a concert this past Friday evening (alone) and I did not get one whiff of cologne that made me stop in my tracks or turn my head. Not One!!! It was disheartening to say the least. The "guys" there ranged in ages 35 to 50. I saw 2 men in suit attire and the rest of the "men" where in jeans, a few had a sport jacket over the jean. I was so unimpressed.

The days of dressing to the nines and smelling like a million bucks (whether their wallets could finance the look or not) seem to be gone. I agree that a woman's scent should be upclose and personal and a males' scent should make one swoon. What has happened???

Old spice and English leather are for men .To many of the newer colognes that men wear smell like they are a woman's perfume . But then we do have a entire industry devoted to feminizing men to make them more appealing to women .
