    Just wondering if you guys could recommend a nice cologne for someone (me) with a very sensitive nose when it comes to fragrances. Pretty much every cologne I have ever smelled is way too strong and gives me a headache. I can't even spend more than 5 minutes in one of those Bath and Body Works places. Just looking for something really, really light. Ideas???

    I have the same problem. My nose has always been sensitive to fragrances, even those cheap body sprays. I absolutely dread places with fragrance counters (oh how I hate perfume counters at Macy's!). More so, I hate people who obviously took a bath in their fragrance. My nose instantly burns.

    Ironically, I used to wear cologne when I was a teenager. I simply lost interest as I got older. I definitely prefer my natural scent after a shower. Same with other guys.

    You may be allergic to something in them. It's not unusual

    Why not use a moistureizer like Vasiline for men or Lubidurm for Men? You could also try maybe just using a scented body wash. I have pretty bad allergies and axe usually works ok for me. It's going to take some trial and error. Sadly.
