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.

Thank goodness!

A young man toting luggage asked me the way to the airport the other day and his cologne was so strong I nearly choked. I consider the wearing of personal scent when sharing a confined space with strangers to be a rude imposition. Unless it’s bacon.

Nothing is worse than to be trapped someplace and you have no choice but to inhale whatever it is that they have sprayed on their bodies. Even the nicest scents can be overpowering when they use too much.

What is it with men and bacon? Maybe I should reconsider my current scent..*grins*
Anyone know if there's a company that produces such a thing?

Essential oil of bacon is rare and expensive. Fortunately, in the right company, women can acquire faint traces of the scent through osmosis.

Sure thing Miss Mae! Just dip your finger in the bacon fat can and gather some up. Slap it on your wrists, at the nape of your neck, behind the ears and kneecaps. You are ready for a hot nite on the town! lol

So true. A couple of days ago I was on the subway and a lady sat down beside me. She was just reeking of some awful perfume, cologne, or whatever. I don't understand how people who do this are so oblivious to the fact that they're creating a bad impression, to say nothing of polluting the air around them.

I've only got one cologne - and it took me ten years to go through one ounce of the stuff. After the divorce, I went shopping for it again- and could NOT find a vendor ANYwhere that would sell a small bottle (half ounce or single ounce) of the stuff.

After deliberating about it, I decided to get the larger two-ounce bottle. Thank GOD my new GF likes the scent. I might be mistaken, but I swear the little spritzer thing is larger and kicks out a LOT more spray. I try my best to just half-spray the stuff because I swear I could stink out an entire shopping mall if I used it 'generously'.

If they are licking your face, you probably grabbed the beef gravy instead of the Fish Bait Formula. Common mistake. Happens ALL the time.

Just a decent bar of soap or a hint of Fierce Cologne on a well groomed man will get my attention.

One decent substitute is Eau de Semen. Just don't wash after someone splashes it all over your face.

A lot of women used to tell me in my forties that they could practically smell the male feromones on me, they were so strong. I told them it was just my natural armpit odour that they smelled and which turned them on. They told me it was the way I looked at them. I said, in order to not get turned on, I looked at women with forcing my imagination to view them as if they were a large piece of bacon wax, sculpted.

On the rare occasion that women complemented me on my choice of male cologne, I replied that it was just that one rare day in a million when I had taken a shower and applied under-arm deodorant.

People are so misguiledly misguided. If all the missiles were as misguided as people, then there would be no people.

I have never used cologne of any type, and don't like deodorant soap, it gives me an oily feel.

I only use a strong anti-perspirant, whatever I smell like is 100% me.

Personally, I love the smell of Axe on a man. Not the cologne per say, but the soap. One of my colleagues uses it and smells totally yummy. I create computer problems just so he will come fix my blunders.

I currently use their Dark Temptation body wash and deodorant, I've had a few women compliment me on my cologne when I'm not wearing any.

English Leather came out when I was a teenager, Canoe came out when MY children were teenagers LOL! Now....give me a man who smells of the Old Spice that my Daddy and Grandpa used to wear and it "triggers" all kinds of happy, content feelings. The sense of smell is the greatest memory trigger we have so guys.....either wear what reminds her of happy moments or forgo the cologne all together until you find out what she likes.

I remember the old commerical for that:

"All my men wear English Leather......or they wear nothing at all." Sounds good to me *wink*
