    fragrances, what are you wearing and what does you wife/gf like?

    So far my favorites are:

    Dolce & Gabbana - The one, the original dark brown one. Really love this one, it was my best one for a long time.
    Attachment 932704

    Dior - Homme, the original yellow one, Smells even better than the one, but not as long, or at least I myself can't smell for as long. I really love this one.

    the pic is too big to post here, or there is some other forum problerms it seems, so
    you have to see it here instead http://www.dior.com/beauty/en_us/ver...201_052014.jpg

    But there is something even more better I found out. Much much better! Yves Saint Laurent - La nuit de l'homme in combination with L'instant de guerlain pour homme, in a 2 to 1 ratio where the YSL is 2. Oh my fuking god... But I only wear that combo for special occations. Its just severely overpowering at work for example. these 2 just match eath other so well its insane. Its like they were meant for for this. I found out by accident.

    Attachment 932711




    Attachment 932710




    Yeah thats my top 3. Best i've found to date, and highly unlikely to change anytime soon.

    runner up is Calvin Klein - Encounter, but it has NOTHING on these 3 imo. its still very very nice though




    Whats your favorites?? And what does your girlfriend/wife wants you to wear??

    Yeah no pics seems to be showing up today. its all fuked. So maybe I'll give it another try later with an edit.

    Nothing here except Tom's Natural Deodorant, unscented. Both my wife and I dislike artificial scents intensely. As long as you keep clean, I don't think it necessary.

    Amarige, or something like that....

    Lest there be any confusion, which is near impossible with the savvy posters on the OT, the above mentioned cologne is what the little woman likes.

    For me, I just use deoderant....Speed=Stick type.

    I figure antifreeze is better than aluminum in the armpit area.

    My workplace policy is fragrance -free. Even the cleaning products are neutral scent. (I work in a hospital)

    I shower, use scent-free products and wear clean clothes daily.

    I haven't seen any data, but I wouldn't be surprised if the perfume industry is declining in sales... but that's only my observation because I rarely encounter anyone in my day, wearing perfume

    I often do. But I neither work in hospitals nor visit them.

    I use Tom's for camping and hiking/riding. Or I don't wear any at all for hiking/riding because scents attract bugs. Sometimes Tom's gets kinda soapy like in texture which I don't care for which is why I often don't use it on hikes/rides anymore. I don't sweat a ton so I use deodorant, not antiperspirant. I also use cologne sparingly (some sort of D&G my wife buys me in a clear bottle).

    I dunno about you, GS, but anti-perspirants are kind of scary to me.

    Most if not all of them suspend their ingredients in an aluminum base, which can be absorbed topically in a pore-rich area such as the axilla (armpit).

    There's been a connection established to some degree between aluminum absorption and dementia conditions.

    So for all of them tinfoil-hatters, the joke's gonna end up being on them!

    I haven't wore cologne since high school, and it didn't work for the ladies then. I stick with the trusty Lever 2000 soap and Degree deodorant, as neutral smelling as possible.

    That's another reason I don't use antiperspirant, I don't like the fact they use aluminum in them. Luckily I only went through a short phase of sweating a lot in my teens.

    One thing I do use though is gold bond in my riding shorts!

    Well since I did this commercial for them I have a life time supply so it's Old Spice for me

    <iframe width="640" height="375" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/owGykVbfgUE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    It turns out a life time supply is only 12 cans, this stuff is so toxic no-one has ever survived using more than 12 cans in a row.

    I gave up antiperspirants years ago because of the aluminium (bodily absorption and staining the **** out of my shirts). I just use whatever cheapest deodorant I can get off the rack.

    Deodorant only when I'm working or riding. I never wear cologne.

    And it's very rare I enjoy perfume on a woman. I had an older (female) boss who wore stuff I approved of, and it was fairly subtle. If you're going to beat me over the head with your scent, I am going to react very negatively.

    I've been known to threaten to cancel my subscription to a magazine unless they send me the unscented version. That is EXTREMELY offensive to me.

    Brew that was then this is now. There has been a lot of technological advances in deodorant / antiperspirants over the years. Back then all you could get was white stcky and goopy. Yes it stained the sh!t out of your clothes. Now you can get a clear stick or gel. I prefer the clear stick. It goes on easy without any sticky feeling. Plus its clear so it doesn't stain any of your shirts.

    That was my that was then this is now speech.

    Fresh from a time-out, I'm quite hesitant to weigh in on such a personal & highly controversial topic.
    Now that daily bathing is common, those that overdose on perfume and cologne seem to attract much (-) attention.
    Since censor appears the new norm, I'll not share an opinion, only an experience.

    Was once bribed to ask a patron that her friend please reduce her perfume usage. Even in a smoke-filled club her perfume was making the bartenders gag and their eye's water, and she was widely known as "perfume girl".
    If you wear scents, and people snicker after you pass by, chances are that you too have become THAT guy/girl.

    I do like a woman wearing higher end perfume at subtle levels. Me, I just go with my base line BO. I'll throw on a little deodorant now and again though.

    Good seeing you back Flyin_W.
