Does anyone actually use Old Spice? I mean, apart from dads who get those gifts from their kids and have no choice? Whatever happened to classic scents for men, like Bay rum?

I use Old Spice. The girls like it... I guess it's a sign you're an actual man instead of some androgenous hipster in skinny jeans.

Old Spice and Polo are in the same category for effective masculine olfactory enhancement. Might as well splash on some witch hazel while you are at it.

My wife smells like a stripper and I can't figure out how she learned that. She won't talk about her past, and has tyts that precede her into the next time zone.

She smells like a stripper and has time-traveling tattoos? Is she a character on a straight to tv Syfy movie?

Well, as someone who decided on his partners based on how delicious I find their smell (especially the one coming from her vaginas), I'm getting a kick out of this study.

Yes, even if you were hot, I couldn't get serious if my nose didn't pick up that smell. And it's not about taking a shower, it's the natural smell every person has.

I have like 4 types:

Bad smell: I don't want anything with this person, not even their company.
Neutral smell: Regular people. I may have sex if the chance arises. Must fulfill other qualities to be considered couple material.
Good smell: Women I like. Probable candidates for mating.
THAT smell: I go crazy. I WILL get involved with the woman even if it's a red flag in other areas (usually sanity, lol)

I wear their Fiji deodorant. It has a high aluminum content and is a good antiperspirant. And it's a solid, the gel ones make me burn. Oh, and I like how it smells. So does my girlfriend.

Aluminum is good for reducing perspiration and also for increasing your chances of Alzheimers.

Old Spice is a bit of a tricky one - most women I know think of it as a "creepy uncle" scent, they're reminded of "Uncle Frank" who always wore a semi-transparent short-sleeved dress shirt with a visible wifebeater underneath.

So usually, it's a turn off for them. However, every once in a while you'll run into a woman who was molested by Uncle Frank, so to them Old Spice may as well be ruhypnol. They're like putty in your hands.

I've been told, there must be something about my scent that attracts women. I haven't worn deodorant since I was a teenager.

I gotta agree that you can't really beat Old Spice for consistency and effectiveness among the general female population. I actually think their original scent body wash is plenty enough for a night out, it's surprisingly strong. I've noticed that sandalwood based colognes will always prompt more responses than most musks.

Two protips:

If the girl you are trying to get was in high school in the early to mid-nineties, wear Curve cologne. It reminds their subconscious of being in the backseat of their former boyfriend's car.

Of every cologne and aftershave I have ever used, I've never been asked to be smelled more than when I had this in my hair:

lh4.googleusercontent.com

I'm not even kidding. It took me a while before I figured out that it was the shiat in my hair that all the girls were raving about.

/Sadly, I have a buzzcut now. Fark MPB.

I like Denali. That high aluminum content must be why sometimes I can go a day or two without and it still working. Hopefully I'll die before Alzheimer's sets in.

Only if the actual man was Isaiah Mustafah. And if I had him, he could smell like just about anything.

Actually, even soap and shampoo are sold to us as if they were in any way healthy or good for us. They are not.

These things strip our bodies of their protective outer layer of oils. By doing this, not only does our skin dry out and hair become brittle and lifeless, but it exacerbates the various odors that the human body will emit in order to recover from this stripping.

Wiping the body with lukewarm water on a hand towel and an occasional rinsing of hair under cool, running water is enough to clean on a semi-daily basis. Any more than that, or using chemicals like soap or shampoo or deodorant, is unhealthy.

Women have a stronger sense of smell than men. And men usually smell worse. God said 'Ha!'.

I saw a study where new mothers could identify their babies by scent. Freaky. And that power is supposed to be the cause of menstrual synchronicity. More freaky.

PS: The best old school scent for men is Aqua Velva.

I tend to use Axe products whenever possible. Yeah, I know, many of you are going to cry "hipster". Go for it. Ive been down the road with Old Spice (wife hates it), and all the other major brands and store brands of deoderants, shampoo, etc and I like the way the Axe stuff works best. Other brands do have better scents, but I dont use enough of the stuff for it to linger an excessive amount of time anyways. For me its about function, and Ive found what works best for me.

Scent wise I like Old Spice stuff best, but the wife hates it.

I had one of those relationships. Crazy woman, but just getting close to her neck for a kiss and it was ON.

Luckily, this one is sane AND has that smell. My ex-wife didn't have it. No other woman has. I think I'm lucky to find it twice.

I think subbie got it wrong. Their data seems to say that a lack of a sense of smell interferes with having a relationship at all rather than with making it last.

Are you my old roomie? He said the same shiat and he smelled horrible on a regular basis. After PT he'd wipe down with a warm washcloth and our barracks room regularly smelled of ass and foot. And rinsing your hair with just cool water will still leave greasy nasty buildup and a bad smell. You likely smell bad and you should feel bad.

On that note...try baby or kids shampoo. It has far less soaps & cleansers than regular stuff, and leaves most oils still in the hair. If your the type that uses a lot of junk (gel, hair spray, etc), or have very oily hair, use a regular adult shampoo once or twice a week to clean the junk out.

Yep -- it is both a curse and a blessing. Not gonna get smothered by a gas leak, but not gonna go face down on a sweaty hoo-hah either.

Many people don't realize they either have B.O. issues or need to slack off on the fragrance. If I can smell you in either case from arm's length, you need to deal with it.

We have a gal at work that is so offended by poop and fart smells that she douses the ladies room with air freshener every time she visits, turns on the poop fan and closes the men's room door if one of us has been in there long enough to make a turd, and has 2-3 candles and / or air fresheners running WFO in her office at all times. Did I mention she applies perfume with a ladle ??

She has no farking clue that her concealment is 10x worse than what it attempts to conceal, and all fingers point at her when she applies the concealment.
