Title says it all, what are some good scents for going to the gym? I have never really been sure what sort of fragrance is best for that setting.
Honestly? Well, if you want to wear something here are the ones I use for hot days (I teach Martial arts) that seem to actually work well and actually smell NICE with some sweat and heat (at least for me) - they are - Adidas Pure Game, Adidas Fresh Impact, KC Reaction (or BOD Fresh Guy which is very similar) Old Spice Wolfthorn , Heno De Pravia splash and Old Spice Pure Sport or Champion Body sprays
I don't really understand the sport fragrance thing.
Why would someone not wear their "normal" fragrance after showering and preparing to leave the gym?
I suppose I could understand if the scents were designed to cut through the smell of sweat during a workout but that doesn't seem to be their function..
I lift weights, and I find fragrance extremely CLOYING to wear while lifting as I gasp for my breath after doing my worksets.
I go easy on the deodorant, too. Just one brush. One time, I could smell the Matterhorn Old Spice while doing squats and I got pretty annoyed, because it took my focus off my form.
AFTER the gym:
I like to wear something sweet, fruity and light (Escada Sunset Heat or KC Connected or Izod).
It takes me nearly an hour to get to my dojo so that gives it some time even if I put it on RIGHT before I leave I never wear anything even slightly "heavy" to class
