Also, I highly recommend aftershave over cologne. Most men who wear cologne use too much of it, and they don't realize how sensitive women's noses are.
L'Occitane makes quality pleasant smelling products (except for their older formulation shaving cream which smelled great but provided poor lubrication).
Many men use scented aftershaves. The problem is that they last no longer than an hour.
I don't think women's noses are any more sensitive than men's noses. I think women overapply fragnance to a much greater degree than man. Possibly because it is more socially acceptable for a women to leave a trail of fragnance when they walk.
IMHO, around two feet should be the maximum distance your fragnance projects, though it is hard to control these things precisely.
