The deodrant...I mean. I cough when I smell it. But I got it for X-Mas from my mum, so I am using it :(
Your mom got you deodorant for Christmas? And I though I had a weird mom! :bugeye:

Though, with deodorant, of course the most important thing is...does it work? If the unscented stuff doesn't keep you from sweating and stinking, then, well, you have to deal with the scented stuff. But, even if you do like scents, why would you go for a scented deodorant? It would probably clash with the carefully selected cologne or perfume.
I picked up unscented deoderant once a long time ago. The reality of it was that it did have a scent and it was not a very pleasant one.
Like Greg said the old spice deoderant doesn't exactly smell like oldspice cologne. I think it only has a very slightly similar smell. What's more important to me is that it is pretty cheap and it goes well with the sort of cologne I wear.

Acqua di Gio
A lady once told me that she loved that cologne so I went out to see about maybe getting some. I thought it smelled like women's perfume. No offense, but it just wasn't me at all.

I like the smell of WD40, apart from that it frees up nuts.
:rofl: I love you, woolie.

I remember keeping a guy's sweater in seventh grade because it smelled like him -- I think it was Aspen. I loved smelling that sweater. :rolleyes: I don't know if I'd still like it. My little brother wears Axe stuff, and it's usually too much for me. But I've been quite sensitive to smells since I quit smoking (almost 4 months!), so maybe that's it.

I like hydrosols (though they don't last very long by themselves) and found this great company, Mountain Rose Herbs, that has the most incredible rosewater -- so fresh, warm, soft, and sweet. Mmm. I like rose, jasmine, gardenia, and amber. I think lavender by itself has a piney, slightly medicinal smell (it's nice in the shower). Not sure what I'd like on a guy. You know that new book smell? :tongue2: Actually, lavender might smell nice on a guy. It has that clean, woody thing going on.

I became very attracted to a guy once because he smelled like soap. Very subtle, clean smell, he refused to tell me what it was. :devil: I guess he figured once he told me I'd dump him. I still remember how it drove me crazy.

Anything with musk in it will make me sick.

Y'know, you might be right there. I like it because it's very clean and "soapy" smelling, a little spicey even. Yeah, it sounds strange to suggest it, but it does seem like a man would smell very tasty if he were bathed in lavender. :approve:

I think that's what I really like, are earthy, herbal/spicey scents, not floral, definitely not musk (I completely agree with Evo on that...musk is absolutely nauseating to me), nothing like perfume, just a very natural, clean smell...like fresh air in the woods. I also have soaps that are lemongrass scented...they're very nice in the morning for waking up. A friend used to have a shower gel that was eucalyptus scented (a product she'd bring back from Holland...maybe Monique knows what it is...you can't get it in the US) which was also fantastic for that morning shower to help wake you up with an invigorating scent. Lavender is more of the soothing, help you go to sleep at night scent.

Even some soaps and shampoos are too strongly perfumed for me. Pantene is one of them, as is Dove brand soap (they might have a less strongly scented one now, I can't recall, but the original bar soaps were cloyingly sweet). Those sorts of scents give me a headache. But then something like Herbal Essence makes me feel just like the women in their commercials. :biggrin:

There are alot of new old spice "flavors". I actually have a stick of old spice fresh and everyone I know says I smell good :smile:
New Old Spice, huh? Okay, I guess I was out of the loop on that. I just know the old stinky stuff my step dad wears that seems to be the essence of old-man smell. I'll have to do some sniffing of the deodorants at the grocery store and report back on which are acceptable for my palette. :biggrin:

I'd buy you a case of the stuff for a tape recording of that!
