- 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.
