Default My Man wears ?????? or nothing at all.

What scent do you like on your mate?

My wife likes me to wear this obnoxious Passion by Elizabeth Taylor. I hate it but she likes it so it only is worn when she requests (please, please).

I personally like Chanel Platinum. She doesn't mind it at all.

I've tried many over the years but I usually grow tired of them in short order and end up with soap and water.

Take care,
Mike

Because of my allergies to certain fragrances, my preference is soap and water.

I love the smell of Lagerfield so my DH wears it.

I wear Victoria's Secret Dream Angels Divine. He likes it so I wear it.

My DH refuses to wear any fragrance, and he really doesn't like it when
I do. Although I just bought Miss Dior Cherie in a body cream which I enjoy very much.

Mine also wears Ralph Lauren Safari. We panicked last year because they told us in a shop in Grand Cayman that it had been discontinued, but we found it down the street. Clearly the first shop was just trying to push what they had

Well, since my DW doesn't read the posts......I wear Polo (green bottle) or Grey Flannel. I like Polo the best.

For my man, and for myself, it's soap and water only because I am allergic to most fragrances. I can tolerate a light after shave on him, but I cannot tolerate heavy perfumes on others.

DH is wearing Rive Gauche by YSL at the moment. I also quite like Ralph Lauren Polo.

Myself, well, I change all the time, also it depends on the occasion and the weather even.

For dressing up, my favourite is Coco Chanel Madamoiselle. For sporty, Tommy Hillfiger for woman, or something like Lacoste in Pink. I was given a box of 5 Estee Lauder miniatures for Christmas and I love the idea of sampling different ones, most of them are floral, so ideal for spring. Beyond Paradise and Beautiful are my favourite of that lot.

Now, I will probably take Dune by Christian Dior to the cruise since it really has some hot weather inspiration there somewhere. It's something that I only wear in summer but love it during the season.

Someone mentioned Magie Noire, oh, my mum has been a fan for years!

Clinique's Happy - love it because it reminds me of the beach and Eternity for Men.,

My long time favorite has been Eternity (women) and when I can find it Cashmere by Vic Secret

REALM for men- Back in the day it was very expensive, but now since it lost it's popularity it is 1/4 of the price.

My wife prefers that I don't wear any cologne or after shave.

I have afew things I wear depending on where I'm going and my mood. Very Sexy for Her by Victoria's Secret is my favorite, but I also have a couple body oil mists from Victoria's Secret that I like (Coconut is one).

My husband used to wear Very Sexy for Him, which a like a lot, but now he mostly wears Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani. Love it!

Default Lean in...

To my mind the whole idea of wearing a scent is not to warn others off from twenty feet... but to make them want to lean in from ten inches. Anything subtle but earthy enough to do that - whether I'm the leaner or the leanee - is great by me!
