Default The smell goods.

I love things that smell good, donít we all? Recently I had the opportunity to go with a friend in cosmetics to a perfume/cologne showcase. Since scent can probably be the most instant turn on or turn off in any situation, I figured a good exchange thread would be useful. Most the information here is either something Iíve gathered from reading, the showcase, or is simply personal preference.

I apply directly after toweling off from the shower. Apparently the moisture on your skin simultaneously dilutes the intensity of the smell and allows the scent to hold longer. Generally I put a small dab or spritz in my hair, as hair holds scent longer, then one small dab on a wrist, rub them together then a across my neck. It is important to allow the cologne to set before putting on any jewelry or watches as most metallic items will change the scent, adding an almost coppery undertone. When applying always remember the number one rule with scents, err on the side of too little.

Generally when choosing scents you have to think about your body type. If you ďsecreteĒ a lot, or generally have a strong personal smell you want to go more towards your musk and heavier colognes. If your skin is often dry or you simply donít sweat you want to consider the lighter, more acidic scents.

Being one of the latter I use Este Lauderís Pleasures for Men, itís an inexpensive citrus scent thatís light and faintly smells of tangerines, furthermore the applicator is usually a mist, allowing for more even dispersions. Occasionally when I think Iím going to be smoking a lot, or in a bar Iíll go a little stronger; currently partial to Polo Blue, a heavier and crisper scent but still a citrus base. For those of you preferring a heavier musk scent I would recommend the Polo Black. I have also heard from several women about a purple bottled Prada cologne that is irresistible.

As far as perfumes go Iím a big fan of women who wear Dior Addict, and I pretty much want to attack anyone wearing Sublime by Jean Patou.

As a final note, for those of you who react to badly cologneís consider baby powder. In almost every blind survey baby powder wins as most ďattractiveĒ smell.

So what cologneís, perfumes and scent schemes work for you EDF?

Depends on the season...winter I wear Cartier and all other seasons I wear Estee Lauder Intuition. Occasionally I'll wear Ferragamo as well.

I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older.

I'm sorry for taking this thread off track immediately with my 'witty' American Psycho quote.

I can see you put a lot of time into the OP, so it would be a shame if all the replies were 'i like xxx, people like it'. But unfortunately, most, like myself, probably don't have enough knowledge on the matter to type a lot.

One little tip I learned recently was to put a dab behind each ear, that way when a girl is talking into your ear in a crowded club/bar she can smell it. Pretty sweet.

Anyway, hopefully this thread will take off.

The density of the writing was totally intentional, and the reference appreciated, it's my first EDF post, I wanted it snazzy.
