Chalk this up to curiosity. I don't wear cologne on a regular basis but when I do, I find spraying it on my clothes makes the scent last longer. I'll usually do one spray in my neck/collar area and then another square in the middle of my chest area while already wearing my shirt.

I don't wear any. I'm allergic to like 90% of perfumes out there...so yeah.

#4 Posted by Virago (2486 posts) -

Put a few dots of perfume on wrist and neck before clothes, than one spritz in the air and walk under it.

#5 Posted by Bell_End (1208 posts) -

A nice clean shower and some deodorant is just fine.

I have basically no sense of smell so I never put any on, but I used to wear some cheap deodorant that worked... I think...

This

But the only time I really wear cologne If I'm going out or a special event.

#12 Posted by habster3 (3595 posts) -

I spray cologne on both my skin and my clothes: some on my neck, some on my arms/wrists, and some on my shirt.

#13 Posted by Sploder (917 posts) -

Just deodorant, I can't afford any cologne lol.

#14 Posted by Demoskinos (14713 posts) -

Uh dont think it really counts as cologne but I do use Axe Body spray.

#15 Edited by BraveToaster (12590 posts) -

I spray once on my skin and once on my shirt. One to two sprays is all you need.

Diesel and Dolce and Gabbana for Men are the two that I use. Also, if you're cheap, Curve has a nice manly citrus smell to it.

#16 Posted by skittles (156 posts) -

Most of the time it's just on my wrists, and then touch those to the sides of my neck. Sometimes I'll spray once on my shirt or inside the lapel of my jacket, but not often.

Always wear cologne. It's like, zero effort, and girls like it.

If I want to smell unique then I put on Cologne

Not really. Women wearing perfume is fine; it smells nice the majority of the time.

I find 95% of cologne revolting, though. It's 2012, not the 50's. No offense to anyone, but in my daily life, the dudes who regularly wear cologne always seem out-of-touch. Special events are one thing, but what's the point anytime else, especially if you're wearing a t-shirt and cargo shorts? It gives the impression you don't shower, at least to me.

I would tend to agree. I don't use it, but could see putting some on for special events. The numerous times I have sat by people in class that wear cologne daily just makes me think they are covering up the fact they forgot to shower.

#20 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2342 posts) -

No cologne. Old Spice body wash usually keeps me smelling fresh, though I occasionally use body spray.

#21 Posted by zombiepenguin9 (533 posts) -

I like cologne, but don't wear it that often. Not crazy about body sprays, as they usually smell kinda cheap to me.

#22 Posted by Cube (4366 posts) -

I put it on for nights out with the girlfriend or if I'm going somewhere formal.

#23 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

If you wear Axe, how are you not like twelve?

#24 Posted by AlphaDormante (44 posts) -

Don't use perfume often, but when I do I spray it in the air and walk through the cloud. The scent is noticeable but not overwhelming.

I don't know. I wear it semi regularly. Women love a man who smells good. I don't think anyone is saying cologne is something to replace showers.

Now, that said, most men wear totally gross cheap tacky smelling cologne.

Perfumes were once utilitarian, about a hundred years ago when common folk rarely showered. Now that we've hygienically improved as a society, it's been replaced by deodorant, which is sensibly applied at the source of body odor. Perfume/cologne is now just a vestige of a time long passed.

/oddly in-depth screed.

Anyway, no I don't use cologne.

Fair enough. The problem I have with cologne is most dudes I come across, they put on way too much. Unless I'm talking to someone face-to-face, I shouldn't have to smell it. I have always been under the camp that perfume/cologne should only be for people like a spouse/partner/male-female interest, not an announcement for everyone who has to be around you.

And I'm not saying it's replacing showers, technically; I'm just saying when you're like, just going to the store and all you're wearing is casual clothes, there's no need for cologne, or worse, body spray. If you have a job that requires you to wear dress clothes or like I said, a special occasion, then sure. It's just the t-shirt/shorts combo with cologne/body spray just screams "I didn't shower today".

I guess I'm at a point in my life where I don't care if "women think it smells good". The women I date usually don't care, either.

Deodorant yo! The few times ive used cologne tho it was on my neck area a bit on my shirt

#31 Posted by MegaLombax (384 posts) -

Depends...Sometimes I'll spray it once on my clothes. Usually that's when the shirt have a slight odor to it. If I'm going out on a special occasion, I'll spray it on my wrists on wipe on my neck.

#32 Edited by MikkaQ (10276 posts) -

Nope, fragrances are not for men to trifle with. I just keep good hygiene.

Also I hate hate hate women who use cheap perfume. I can smell it on 'em from three miles away. It's all too common, especially with girls around my age. If you can't afford the good shit, just don't bother, please.

#33 Posted by hawkinson76 (359 posts) -

my wife bought me something years ago (don't ask me what it is), and I still use that right before putting on an undershirt. Apparently this is not often enough, as the same bottle has lasted most of our marriage.

#34 Posted by d_breeze (223 posts) -

I would love to where perfume but I'm allergic to pretty much anything scented that's not actual food, the smells make my throat close if they're too strong :(

#35 Posted by eskimo (475 posts) -

Seriously? Smelling peoples cologne upsets you or makes you think less of them? Jesus.....

#36 Posted by Xerxes8933A (227 posts) -

I use Irish Spring soap, and shower twice a day. I don't need any fancy cologne. But then again, I don't use shampoo either, I just use soap. Never understood the need for a different cleaning product for each area of your body, soap works just fine on all of them.

#37 Edited by ArtisanBreads (3788 posts) -

Cologne, and you always spray it on your neck, put a bit behind your ears before it dries, some on your chest. ;)

For those hating on cologne, it's all taste of course, but I'd add I find many colognes to smell bad as well. You just need to find something subtle and fresh IMO. I like some CK stuff and Lacoste. Girls seem to like it, always get compliments.

Oh geez, like the really fruity smelling shit? Those ladies are practically crop-dusters.

I admire your minimalism, good sir.

#39 Posted by Hizang (8533 posts) -

I spray it on both, for the best ending.

#40 Posted by mlarrabee (2908 posts) -

I use it only on special occasions, and always on skin.

The point of wearing cologne is to have little enough that she has to be six inches from you to notice.

This. I'd also recommend "Code" and "Acqua Di Gio" from Armani.

So you base the distance on penis length then?

They said it was .2 inches above average! They said it, they said it!

See, now I just feel bad.

#45 Posted by RelentlessKnight (963 posts) -

I cannot use deodorant anymore, it's allergic to my skin and its irritating. I usually use Body Spray nowadays...

I fucking hate the fact that you still need to wear/spray shit all over your body

I spray it on my chest (if you know what I'm sayin')

Cheap or not, I constantly get compliments when I wear Curve. I wear that as my "every day" cologne, and I wear Polo when it's a dressy occasion.

Yeah. cheap doesn't mean bad. I used to wear Curve. women like that scent.

You're like the opposite of me. I'm a Patrick Bateman motherfucker when it comes to grooming.
