    Damn! Enough already with the cloud of Acqua di Gio that gay men seem to love to base themselves in before going out. I am tired of the scent. It has been played out.

    I love cologne, and think that it is sexy in small amounts. But a cloud of it? That is too much.

    What cologne do you wear? I wear John Varvatos Vintage.

    I hate cologne, especially excessive use of it. The fresh out of the shower smell is my scent of choice.

    I like wearing cologne, if you are close enough to embrace me, you can smell it. I like Chanel Allure Sport and Hugo Boss.

    I won't hate on cologne, but there's a time and place for it. Also, it has to be in the right amounts. If you're using it to hide body odour - that's disgusting. However, I like a guy who has good taste in cologne. Some scents are a huge turn on!

    I wear Lacoste right now... Red and Orange. The red is sweeter and the orange is more citrusy. They're not overwhelming or anything and I always receive compliments.

    Just one spray on my bare chest for a subtle scent that only those who go in for a smooch can detect. icon_wink.gif

    When the occasion calls for it, Clive Christian X. It is such an unusual scent...a little goes a very long way, and it does not fade.

    Cologne in the right amounts can be very sexy... too much = gag!

    I remember in high school smelling polo on guys before you'd even see them.... now I'm very aware of overuse.

    Me, I have several I use frequently... but "Escape" is an old favorite that remains at the top.

    I'm extremely sensitive to cologne and anything more than a subtle hint literally makes me sick to my stomach. The only thing worse than too much cologne (braces for immediate flaming) are cultural practices that encourage men to bathe in cologne as an inadequate cover up for their man stench. If that's how you roll in your part of the world, that's fine. But if you come into my place of work or make me interact with you when you smell like 10,000 sweaty asses doused in Drakar Noir, don't expect me to be enjoy being in your presence.Photobucket

    From http://tinyurl.com/l4wznj


    By the time the Bourbons came into power in France, perfume had not only risen to an art, it was regarded as medical necessity. Despite the opulence of the palaces of France, they lacked indoor plumbing. According to historians who somehow report to know such things, it was not uncommon to find human excrement in the elegant carpeted stairways of the great palaces. Piles could be found in hallways and corridors. With bathing a rarity and a rather liberal interpretation of the word rest room, the world of the French court stank.

    One way for the cultured nostrils of the day to survive such an environment was to constantly dab a bit of scent under the nose. It's similar to the approach some coroners use when they apply mentholated ointment to their noses before an autopsy. Besides that, perfume was thought to be antiseptic. When the plague hit Europe, it was thought that perfume would protect those privileged enough to be able to sniff it.

    This idea of rich people sniffing perfume to mask the gamey and diseased world around them soon gave rise to the perfumed glove. For many years, French aristocrats wore gloves drenched in perfume so that they could just elevate a royal finger to the nose to shield themselves from the olfactory assaults around them.

    No need of it for myself, or another.


    I like the fresh out of the shower smell as well as...



    hands soaked in parts cleaner



    Oh ya, and the smell of 106 octane racing fuel coming out of the exhaust.








    What?
