Question What is the best smelling aftershave/cologne?

I have a contractor working for me that douses himself in it everyday. I am convinced that it’s something cheap and icky. There must be something with a better fragrance out there…

What’s your favorite?

My son (age 11 ) swears by Axe.

Fortunately, he has yet to discover the "Axe Effect"

I, frankly, have forgotten exactly what the "Axe Effect" is, so I do the soap and water thing. But when I need to smell nice, I usually use Versace.

Actually, it smells so good.... that it kinda makes your whole morning =) I only wear it like 1/week because I am not working in an office anymore. It smells citrus like without being fruity, if that makes any sense. It doesn't smell like old man.

Good to see,

Truthfully speaking, while in Europe I doubted many showered more than once a week. Hopefully the Colognes & purfumes are not the answer to zero hygiene.

Where in Europe exactly?

Generally speaking most people shower at least twice a day over here. In southern Europe the figure is probably even higher.*





*The above does not include France.

Honestly speaking

The French had horrible B.O. and reeked of smoke.

Italians had stinky feet ! We were on the Euorail train and in Italy they packed us in like Sardines. I had to plug my nose as much as possible.

I mis-spoke on England & I apologize.

* Theere seems to be a shortage of orthodontists though.

Do men still use after-shave?

Here is my list:

Chanel Allure
Dolce & Gabana (original)
Creed
Estee Lauder Pleasures

I even like the old Halston.

Old Spice. If I'm feeling particulary fruity, Brut. And on special occasions, Mennin (sp?).

Ewwww.. do you work for me?

Those first two have got to be the offending odor....

Oh yeah, while you're at it... what exactly is "feeling fruity"?
