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.

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"?

Sometimes, on days I'm not wearing cologne, people think I am. All I have on is Degree AP. It smells pretty darn good.

I was told by the SO to get rid of the Burberry Weekend. I liked it, but they didn't.

Aqua Di Gio is a PANTY DROPPER (or in my case a Tighty Whitey Dropper) for sure. I speak from experience.

I still have a bottle of halston z-14.

Always liked it but seldom use it.

I think smelling of oneself and being clean is just right.
