Yes.

And, if you need cologne for this, then yes it helps. If you don't need cologne for this, it doesn't help.

/did not need when I was on the market

Armani Code did get me laid once. I wrote all about it in Penthouse.

Irish Spring soap is all you need.

Smells are certainly important. I'm not sure it's necessarily "good" smells like cologne. My soon-to-be ex-wife would be on me like crazy when she smelled fire and sweat on me, when I caught a late-shift fire and didn't bother to shower at work.

The article briefly implies that men are much less influenced by smells, and I don't buy it. I really like smelling a woman in my clothes after being physically close with her. When my wife moved out I didn't change the sheets for 6 weeks, until I was sure that I couldn't smell her in them anymore. I don't really mean perfumes or body washes, either. Just the clean, natural, smell of a woman.

My wife prefers when I do.

jigger: Not sure if the Hugo Boss thing is still happening.


Oh, was it a thing? That's the only one I've ever liked enough to use with regularity, because in small to moderate quantities it smells good with my own scent. And if I accidentally get a large quantity, a quick rinse doesn't ruin anything.

As a matter of fact, I do.  Always have.  Granted, those first few years in junior high with Brut was a learning experience.  I think my mom thought I was drinking it, I went through it so fast.  Figured out how to use just a small amount, stick to the "cleaner" scents mostly.  As a fat ugly guy, anything that might help, I tried it.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: Armani Code did get me laid once. I wrote all about it in Penthouse.


Dear Penthouse,   I really enjoy reading the Letters Section.  Little did I know that I would be sending you my own story.

It was date night and I was horny and on the prowl.  I carefully prepare myself for these adventures.  I shower thoroughly  in Johnson's Baby Powder until I have a nice, healthy pale completion all over my body.   I then apply Armani Code underarm deodorant to my underarms, underbutt, and underfeet areas.  Next, I apply Armani Code body oil to the rest of my body and I brush my teeth with Armani Code Toothpaste.  I finally douse my hair liberally with Armani Code Just for Men.  I then put on the pants and shirt my mom left out for me and hit the streets rarin' for action.

It's not too long before I am chatting up some tail out and the boulevard.  I work better on the streets but you can find me in the bars and discotechs and video arcades too.  This chick was instantly in to what I was saying.  I think she was ready to push me in to an alley and take me right there.  But part of the conquest is the chase so she plays it cool.  She says "Twenty bucks if the hotel room windows open.  Forty if they don't."  Best seventy bucks I ever paid including the medical co-pays.

/sorry LT.  Couldn't resist, sir.
//Beats whatever work they were expecting from me

A guy I work with bathes in cologne. It's farking nasty. You should not be able to taste someones cologne from them just walking by.

/It covers the smell of the eight cats he has.
//barely
 
2014-03-24 10:16:19 AM  
Yes and depends.

I wear Polo Sport for work/average days and various more spicy shiat for "after dark".  Smelling good during the day is both a personal thing and improves my career, considering I work with people who directly effect my pay and my work potential and visit customers frequently.  And for dates, my woman has her preferences and some of them drive her wild.

RangerTaylor: I used to not bother. Since I started the new job I've been wearing it and the wife's been all over me soooooo


So you started making money and wearing cologne at the same time?

You have confounded the experiment!
 
2014-03-24 10:19:40 AM  
My BF wears Old Spice most of the time, and occasionally this stuff called "Ubermensch" that I got for him.  He uses a light hand, and usually I don't notice it.  However, when I unbutton his shirt, the heat from his body brings me that spiced man-odor, and I love it.  So while his chances of getting laid remain right around 100% whether he's wearing cologne or not, I do appreciate it.

/Am I a gay man in a woman's body?
/it sounds just as dumb said that way.

No way. Also, men that wear cologne at work should be put up against a wall at shot.

Related, I met a VP of marketing for Axe. He said their money demographic is Hispanic males age 12-18. If anyone else buys that crap, it's all gravy.

Yes.  Almost daily.   One spray, so not to be overpowering.

That pretty much says it all. It's for horny teenagers who don't know better and people highly susceptible to marketing.

I used to, since it was a standard at work and I don't want to smell "more like a man than I want to".  Now, not so much.  The wife claims to get headaches from any perfume or cologne or even various soap scents, and makes over-dramatic 'now I have a headache and I'm retching as well' actions when I put on deodorant.

It's not a big deal for me, since I have almost no sense of smell, but I do sometimes worry about the folks around me.

May I recommend this to you:

It's an effective anti-perspirant, and it's odorless.

I used to wear Kiehl's Grapefruit Oil but they stopped making it so now my "signature scent" is a combination of coffee, sweat, and quiet desperation.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one that doesn't consistently wear the stuff and gets splitting headaches when I have to.  Cigarattes have been banned for health reasons, but still perfectly legal to marinate in obscene scents and have scented candles on co-workers desks.  Would love to see one of those sniffer things installed at work.  Anyone over "x" PPM of stink wouldn't be allowed into the office.

Yankee Candle is a weapon of mass destruction and should be placed on a terror watch list.

My wife got that for me. I like it but she loves it. One spritz is enough and I get compliments from women all day, well at least the days I don't smoke a cigar.

This is true; maybe it has something to do with feeling safe and loved by a man you trust?

Only in America would so many idiot colonials complain because they don't know how to use cologne. Jesus f*cking christ, no wonder Europeans hate us. A man without cologne is a disgusting Neanderthal. A man with too much cologne is a forever-alone goofy b*tch who didn't go on enough dates as a teenager. I alternate between like 5 or 6 different kinds, and I never tell females what I'm wearing. This is because smell is the sense most closely tied to memory, and I don't want her going and telling some other jerk to buy my cologne - and the same thing can smell different on different people. I use Lauder Pleasures and Intuition, Acqua Di Gio, John Varvatos, Du Rothschild, fark (That's French Connection UK in case I get filterpwned) and I even have some Stetson for those goofy trips to TX. But walking around and missing out on a free chance to make a positive statement is simply f*cking igmo. What a bunch of little boys.
