The fact that you post on a fragrance forum (nothing wrong with that
) and have never thought that, I honestly find weird. You spend so much time thinking about scents, and you don't stop to think about what's going to flick the switches of some girl [or guy] while you get intimate?

How can you say that! During sex you're touching, tasting, smelling the other person very closely for a [hopefully] extended period. Noticing their scent is absolutely part of the experience.

Uhm.. not always? It'd be nice if sex happened whenever there was a magical connection between souls, but if you live in the real world, you usually know when the odds are high. Like, you know, when going over to your girlfriend's house.

I think this is a very reasonable answer. I've gotten this type of response a few times from the opposite sex. I've even had a situation with a girl where we were in bed and she said, "You smell really good." I took a moment to sniff my wrist to see what I was wearing, and she was like, "No, you
smell nice, not your cologne!" There's a solid chunk of people out there like this, and so I always give strong consideration to "nothing" even if I'd prefer to wear a fragrance.

This is my favorite answer. I think this is the perfect compromise. You don't want to overpower someone with your scent.. God forbid you don't
get laid because of a cologne you put on, that'd be terrible. So if you want to wear something, going with the mildest in your collection is a solid route.- - - Updated - - -
While I thoroughly enjoy the direction this thread has gone, I notice no one has given really solid advice regarding popular notes. I'd be really interested to know how sweeter scents compare to leathery scents, for example, and how they compare to being worn out-and-about.1. Is there anyone that gets no or few compliments on a scent except for when they're in the sheets?
2. Are there any of you that are crazy enough to have matched what you're wearing to the incense/candle/diffuser in your room?
