I'm not saying throw hygiene out the window, I am saying spraying scent on yourself is a bit fuddy duddy, especially when men all over the place are using the same ones. That only triggers memories of other men. Anytime I smell a scent on a man, I can't help but think "trying too hard".
I agree pB. very few colognes that don't scream DB to me. I only use aftershave, and its usually something innocuous like bay rum.

Martin Dingman belt
Gaziano & Girling "Westminster"
Rolex 50th Ann. Submariner

...and I smell like Creed "Original Santal".
Liam, colognes scream double-breasted at you? That must be rather distracting.
pB, your Will.i.n-ing has been tardy, spotty, and generally sub-par of late. Please submit a corrective action plan for the reversal of this negative trend.
Well it has been forming a reverse head and shoulders pattern so if the Will.i.n breaks the shoulder line there is soon to be a rally.
FWIW, I agree with PB on the cologne thing. If you eat right, clean yourself, care for others and otherwise live a good life your natural pheramones should do just fine.
Maybe this makes me odd but I don't use cologne to attract anyone. I just happen to enjoy scents and the changes in the scent throughout the day. For instance, wearing grey vetiver today, it starts out very strong and green in the morning, just what I need to wake me up and give me a lift in the morning. Now in the afternoon it is subdued, non-distracing, but still pleasent when I get a whiff of it.
FWIW, I know I am probably in the minority in my love for smells in general.
