How do you wear cologne AND aftershave?

I have some aftershave balm that I use. I don't currently wear cologne but after many women have told me I should I'm going to go get some. But how do you wear 2 scents? Or do you not? If you shave in the morning do you use aftershave and not put on cologne?

I've perused some of the older cologne threads and it seems Coolwater is a popular one. I've worn it before (when I was in high school) so I'm looking to get something different.

I've heard Polo is good, and I've been suggested Happy for Men by a couple of women.

Anyone here use HfM?

I'd definitely use an fragrance-free aftershave if you use cologne.

Some other colognes I like are Polo Blue, Armani Emporium and Aramis' New West

A simple solution would be to use the same brand cologne as aftershave. Tommy Hilfiger offers an aftershave that I really like which smells much like his cologne.

As far as which colognes I like, I use Lucky, and Tommy. I used to use CoolWater, but haven't bought any since my bottle ran dry. Also, believe it or not, Avon makes a cologne that I find tolerable.

I use Lubriderm Daily UV lotion as an aftershave lotion. It is practically fragrance free. I'm married so I don't need to try to attract women by smell.

I used to wear aftershave, but my face does better since I gave it up.

I only shave every couple of days (hate to shave, and job does not require it.)

So now cologne only for me.

I buy the cologne "sets" which come with deodarant, aftershave, cologne, and shower gel. Everything matches. My current favorite is Coolwater.

Maybe instead of focusing on aftershave you should be looking into deoderants.

My nose isn't very good, but I can only remember one situation where I thought to myself: "That woman really smells nice." I don't even remember who it was, but I do remember she was attractive and the smell probably helped.

I think maybe women are more sensative to smells. Maybe it matters more to them.

Haha.

The discussion turned toward me meeting a girl and the secretaries I work with suggested cologne because women are really into scents.

I've been around 2 girls who I noticed they smelled good. The second was just this past week actually. We were working on a crossword puzzle together and I leaned in behind her and could smell her hair and her perfume. Very nice.

The first was a couple of years ago. It was actually during a kiss. She was wearing some Middle Eastern oil fragrances. I'll never forget that kiss because of how nice she smelled.

The only reason I wear cologne is that it gives a woman at the bar a chance to hit on me. I have been wearing Coolwater lately, just a little. I get a lot of "You smell really good, what is that" at this point I know I am in. If not for the cologne, it's the very generic "I like your shirt" that is still my favorite from any girl at the bar. You know, I still use after shave too, but just some balm type stuff to make my face feel better. I think the smell wears off fast, so I don't worry about the smells combining.

Since we're on the subject,

How do you tell someone nicely to cut back on the amount of "fragrance" they use?

A nice smell when you get close to someone (as in jwjody's last paragraph) can really add to the moment,

BUT when the smell attacks you from across the room it can be just a little too much!

I don't think there is a good way to break it to somebody. There is a guy in the office here that must put on a bottle of Tommy everyday. I can't stand the smell of Tommy anymore, I hope he doesn't walk by anymore today.

Whew! I think his brother works in our office. I can always tell where he's been from the eye-watering haze of Tommy in the air as I walk around the office. If you don't smell Tommy, he's not in the office that day.

Actually in the office they've tried to ban everything with any type of scent. There is no middle ground in our office, it's either all or nothing and throw the baby out with the bathwater.

So they've tried to ban all cologne, perfume, scented lotion, and potpourri. They actually banned air freshener in the bathrooms then they got complaints because of other types of smells, so they allowed them again but we're suppose to be "sparse" with the usage.

I just aided in the hijacking of my own thread didn't I?

OK people back on track! I want some reviews of Happy for Men!

Hmmm.. last time I checked white people didn't often wear coolwater... if you like that sort of smell I think ACQUA DI GIO is probably better.

As for aftershave I almost always use cheap scentless aftershave like Afta. I never shave in the AM (usually after work at the GYM).

A decent cologne is worth springing for though. I really like Bijan and Jean Paul Gaultier.

I have a few different colognes that i use. In the fall/winter I tend to lean toward Kouros by Yves Saint Laurent or Woods by Abercrombie & Fitch.

In the spring/summer I lean toward Tommy, Escape, and the newest one: Echo by Davidoff.

Aftershave I tend to use lotion unscented or what comes in the sets with the cologne.

I like Happy for men. I bought some for my boyfriend and he liked it too. He had never worn cologne before, ever.

I haven't worn cologne for a while. The last one I used was one of those "reactive" scents; it drove me crazy, because it never smelled as good to me as it did to other people?! I finally got an idea of how it was supposed to smell when my brother started using it; it was like a completely different scent when it was on a person. Nevertheless, I gave it up, 'cause I couldn't stand the idea of not knowing what I actually smelled like (Besides, how would I know if it had gone bad?)
