NFT: Cologne: How much do you put on?

superspynyg : 11/10/2017 9:25 am
and where on your body do you like to spray it? Since most cologne comes in spray form I will stick to sprays. How many sprays do you put on?

Do you put more or less on for work than say for a date or social event?

I usually spray 3 times. One on both sides of the front of my neck and on on the back of my neck. Once in a while I will spray my inner wrists. I do not wear cologne for work since I wear a uniform. But on date nights and parts its 3 sprays.

U?

TBH, I would imagine that many women leave interactions with you thinking you wear too much cologne. Three sprays on your neck and on your wrists is a lot. Women have stronger senses of smell than men.

If you're going to wear cologne, I wouldn't use more than a single spray or a dab on your neck.

Only 3 sprays? Youíre doing it wrong  
mfsd : 11/10/2017 9:50 am : link
6 sprays minimum

All joking aside, IMO the same theory for painkillers should apply to any kind of cologne or body spray - the smallest effective dose should be used

I have a body spray Iíve used for years, and have always gotten compliments on - I use one small spray to neck/chest area right out of the shower before a date or night out, the idea being it should only be noticed by a girl if sheís very close, not something people in a crowd should be able to smell

But if drakkar noir is going to make a comeback, let me know, I miss bathing in that shit when I was 18!

That's what the wife likes. She buys me the cologne.

And there are literally millions of men who still wear cologne.
I honestly didnít even think cologne was a thing anymore..

Can even work out, go home, do lawn work, hang out, and I don't stink.

That said, my wife has bought some nice-smelling stuff over the years, and if we're going out to dinner or on a "date night," I might spritz a little here or there. lol

It's all about keeping the ladies happy, fellas.

Lol. This study says that 63% of all men in America 18-65 wear cologne at least occasionally. Ive had numerous girls buy me a cologne for a holiday, ect. Iím 36 but will still give the neck a spray if Iím going out on the weekend and I donít give a shit what all you ďmenĒ say! 😂

it chokes out more women then it draws in.

Honestly, if single and you feel you need to be scented wear women's perfume and let your date think it's some other lady's smell on you when she comes close. Nothing seems to work better.
I'm told

Almost every woman has a cologne  
illmatic : 11/10/2017 9:29 pm : link
that they go crazy for. I don't get the whole "I never wear it and never would" thing but do you, playa. I rarely wear any cologne myself, only with the girlfriend because she loves it or when I'd go on dates before meeting her. But to say it's only for high schoolers is kind of silly. lol. Women don't stop liking it after high school.

Also, please don't wear cologne to work. Everyone knows the type who bathes in the stuff and then goes to work. And they look even worse if they're doing that when they're married or with someone. The key to cologne is going easy on it. You only want someone to smell it if they're within arms length. Not if they're across the building.

All cologne or perfume should come with directions  
GiantJake : 11/11/2017 8:53 am : link
because there are a ton of people doing it wrong. First, people need to be made aware that the "wearer" becomes immune and cannot smell the scent the same way the general public does. Second, many people apply too much just before throwing on their overcoat to go outside. That overcoat is so saturated with "Sex Panther" or "Dirty Ballsack" or whatever you are dousing yourself with that the rest of us can't breathe in the elevator. Third, cologne or perfume should not be used in lieu of practicing personal hygiene. You are not fooling anyone. You smell like unwashed ass AND horrible cologne. Do the rest of us a favor: Take regular showers and take a step back from the Axe body spray.
