Traditionally, I have never worn cologne. It just isn’t my style. But recently I was recalling a woman I dated many years ago who begged me to wear cologne as she loved it. If all women were like her I would bath in it every day.
However, apparently not all women love cologne. While on a first date the other evening my date was complaining of the quality of men she was meeting online. She described them as cheesy cologne wearers. Yikes! I was so glad I happened to not be wearing any at that moment!
This brings up our Question Du Jour: To cologne, or not to cologne, that is the question…
To get the conversation started I solicited the opinions of a couple of my “advisors”, who share their contrasting pro and con points of view on the subject.
All women are different so I won’t say it’s a sure thing, but it will be a hit with most women. Not all women are turned on by smell. However, my experience tells me that if a woman is sexual, she usually likes a man that smells good and that cologne will do it. If they don’t like it, they are probably a stuck up prude and you wouldn’t enjoy fucking them anyway.
I like a guy to smell nice (soap, shampoo, fabric softener) but cologne is one of those things that can be polarizing. On one hand if a woman likes it she may compliment you on it. On the other hand, if she doesn’t like it she may want to get away as fast as possible. You should go without it I think. No girl ever said, “I’m not going out with that guy again! He wasn’t wearing cologne!”
What say you blogosphere friends? Cologne? Or Not to Cologne?
