    I have encountered a few guys at the gym and I am sure something is amis. It seems like when your body heat rises and you wear fragrance that is can overpower and even turn sour?? I am wandering if it is even worth trying to wear cologne at the gym? Does anyone have a favorite to wear at the gym?

    weird question.

    But most fragrances on the market today are completely synthetic (like 90%). So of course they change olfactory quality.

    I walk quite a distance to school everyday, and I'm a ridiculously fast walker. In turn I'm usually drenched in perspiration unless it's less than 23 degrees outside. I use lime infused body oil every morning on my skin and not cheap synthetic shit either. I think it does well with my body and perspiration.

    To the gym: I don't try to make myself pretty. I'm there for myself and no one else.

    Do the rest of us a favor and DO NOT wear cologne to the gym. A little deodorant under each arm is all you need.

    Ugh, I get so annoyed by the guys who drench themselves in Axe Body Spray and then workout.

    while i do not wear cologne to the gym, per se, i do wear specific colognes when i know i'll be oot and aboot socializing in the sun or when its hot (like at pool parties or lawn bowling).

    that said, there are some lines of cologne that work well for lightly athletic situations but nothing like the gym or a run. some of those lines usually have 'sport' in their name.

    a favorite of mine is bennetton sport. Its a light athletic scent that is very fresh and has a minimal scent. but when your body temperature warms up just a bit it gives off the right amount of scent to make yourself smell great. try 'sport' colognes. but as i stated, those are probably best if you're just going to be hanging out in the sun (picnics?) or doing light physical exertion (lawn bowling or shuffleboard). They're probably not meant for hard core physical exertion.

    Dude, don't put on cologne for the gym. For the club or a night out or for work, it's perfectly fine. And if it happens to stay on you by the time you get to the gym, great. There are enough smells at the gym. You don't need to add to it, in my opinion.

    Perfume and cologne have become the industrial waste of our modern world. Many workplaces ban them, and should. They're made from chemicals that cause cancer. Aside from that, why do you need to smell up the gym with YOUR scent? I bet you talk loudly on your cellphone the whole time you're working out too!

    would never occur to me that someone would even consider wearing cologne at the gym. i had some random roving cologne guy try to spray some on me today. i firmly told him not to...he said "dude, the chicks will be all over you" told him i didn't think that would be a good idea

    Interestingly enough I got a whiff of a cologne from a gym regular once and it smelled pretty damn good.... but I agree with what has been said above... the last thing I'd worry about is a cologne at the gym.

    Shower just before you go.
    Leave before you stink.

    Be considerate......just because you think something smells good, don't assume others will like it. I hate cologne and many people are allergic to the stuff.

    I'm lucky if my hair looks good when I go, just not that interested in making myself smell or look amazing. I'm there to run and work out.

    I want to murder people who do this, go to some corporate gym for the fat and flabby workout wanna be's.

    If you bathe regularly, there is no good reason to put on cologne before heading to the gym.
    If you don't bathe regularly, you shouldn't be out in public in the first place, let alone causing an odorous nuisance at the gym.
