- DO REAL MEN WEAR COLOGNE?

I was at a party this weekend and there was well, lets say an "interesting," guy there. I swear to god it smelled like he emptied half a bottle of Brut onto his clothes. He REEKED like cologne and it was sickening. I was beside myself thinking how in the world could someone do that and still expect to attract women?

He was wearing an open white shirt with a chain around his neck. I don't think he was originally expected at this party at least I hope he wasn't. Or maybe it was me who shouldn't have been there.

I commented to a friend who agreed there is just no reason for it. One of my guy friends said a little bit of cologne is ok and asked me, "Why don't you wear any?" I said, "Uh because I'm a guy."

I'm just not a big fan of it. Perfume on women is ok but just a little bit, at least in my opinion.

But the kicker was this. I was talking to two women and asked them if they liked cologne. They screamed, "YES WE LOVE IT!" But then some horrible song came on the rotation a minute later and they started screaming again about that as well. So I realized I was directing my comments towards the wrong audience.

Oh and the second super duper kicker came about an hour later. I saw those two same women leaving the party with the very same guy with the open shirt who was reeking of cologne. It was straight out of a movie. I was just standing there thinking you've GOT to Be kidding ME. But I shit you not.

LOL. OK, I will offer you my unbiased opinion based on the fact that I don't (currently, at least) have a penis.

Women like cologne. It just smells good and we all know that women like things clean (well, the right kind of women anyway. I personally am addicted to Clorox wipes. But that's beside the point.) So cologne gives the illusion of a clean, sweet-smelling hunk of meat. Which, of course is PERFECT.

Here is where cologne goes wrong:

1. Massive Amounts of Cologne
2. #1 plus a gold Chain.
3. #2 plus a button-up shirt not buttoned up enough.

I am not saying guys who don't wear cologne aren't clean. It's just an extre bit of advertising...

Cologne is only sexy when you have to be really close to smell it. And that's that.

I've always thought that anyone who wears perfume or cologne is hiding offensive BO, and should therefore take a shower once in a while. Wasn't that stuff invented because people in France didn't/couldn't bathe, or something? I personally like the smell of soap and deodorant better than perfume/cologne.

I was just thinking about this today!!! (lulu and eefers both have good points). I was sitting next to our art director in a meeting and his cologne was so overpowering that I wondered "why do you have to use that much to smell 'good' at work?". I think it should only be used at appropriate times and discriminately at that.

Yet, I love when I'm close to my bf and I smell just a hint of his cologne. Very subtle and only I can get a real whiff of it. Yes, I said whiff. So I say it’s only hot if you're getting close enough to someone and then smell it, but most likely that moment is pretty hot anyway and you don’t really need it.

Theres nothing wrong with a little bit of cologne, just as long as it doesnt overpower every other scent around you. I've always been fond of a man who wears a subtle amount. To the point where you can only smell it when u are an inch away.

That hit of cologne or ater shave is very important on a date. A dab on the wrist, dab on the neck, and stepping through a mist to get a hint on the clothes. But don't do these things right before you meet someone, let the smells sink in. You don't want to go the door covered in strong smells. As for the work-place, unless you have an office full of woman you want to sleep with during lunch, let the deodorant and soap do it's job.

side note - Old Spice High Endurance Body Wash has the strongest After Shave Smell, for a soap. I was told to hold off on the After Shave when I wasn't wearing any.

I agree with the woman when they say it's best to be smelled a close range. Girls, take a cue for this too, strong perfume isn't a turn on, good smelling hair and a hint of perfume is best.

I'm always interested on what people like to comment on, such as a post like this. I will take that into account how many women like cologne if applied conservatively. I'm not sure I'll start wearing it though. I stopped using it in like 8th grade, ironically the last time I had a date. And I agree with Todd about women having good smelling hair being a turn on.

be careful next time kid. says the masked spelling avenger... as he pats the careless child's plump shoulder and sends him on his way...

remember he says I've tried to impress ladies with my spelling techniques and it never works, but you should never use art for any purpose other than for the sake of it.

My wife says that cologne is for the other kind of men. A true man should wear a good deodorant and antiperspirant combo (i.e. Right Guard Total Defense 5 Power Gel Arctic Refresh) It drives my wife wild 24/7.
