    Unhappy I wore this after gym & 2 gay Thai men wanted to eat me

    I wore Opium in the morning. It's a nice fragrance, but its woody tone is too much for Bangkok heat. Thanks to myself that I wore it lightly.

    Anyway, after gym an hour ago I wore another scent. I was in a lift alone, then 2 Indians came in, nothing happened. Then, down to the 7th floor, 2 Thai gay men (rent boys) came in.

    "Do you smell something wonderful?" one of them said, in a low voice.
    "Yes, must be this Japanese guy," the other replied.

    I was a bit nervous then. They didn't think I was Thai. I turned fully alert just in case they'd say something offensive or over the line.

    When we arrived at the 1st floor, I let the Indians out first, then, I expected 2 Thais to follow them, but they didn't move. I turned to them, they smiled back, and followed me out the lift.

    "Follow him he smells lovely," one of them said.

    I almost wet my pant it was a bit scary as I had no idea how long would they follow me.

    "Yes, very nice," the other said in a sissy way, voice high and low.

    I sped up, turned right and motioned my way on the dark footpath. They really did follow me, I could sense them behind me. I walked even faster then, and a gap between us became longer, but, alas, got stuck at the traffic junction a few minutes later.

    Finally and sadly, they were right behind me.

    "Excuse me!" said both of them.
    I turned to them slowly, "Yes?"
    "How are you?"
    "I'm fine, why?"
    "What perfume you use?"
    (this is exactly what they said)
    "Axe."
    "What color?"

    I, instinctively, recalled there were blue (Click) and red (Touch). "Red," I said confidently.

    The light turned green so I started moving once again. They followed me closely. Then we got stuck at another one.

    "Where are you from?" one of them asked.
    "Sorry I'm not comfortable talking with you guys. I'm in a hurry."

    They sighed and turned more sissy. "Okay sorry," one of them said and paused, "you come to my room, okay?" he continued, then pulled my right forearm, and that really scared the hell out of me.

    I said no word but gave them an evil eye, then hurriedly crossed the road and took a taxi. For Buddha's sake my home was only 8 minutes away by walk and I had to take taxi. Too bad I wasn't tough enough :-( I believe these people must have a knife or a cutter in their backpack since their job brings total stranger to them and so anything unexpected could happen, as a result, a cutter to protect themselves was probably necessary. I want no hassle with these guys. So, I took a taxi.

    Well, I narrated every detail, perhaps, too much. The scent I was wearing is BOGART pour homme (2004).

    What do you think about this one? Now I'm enjoying every whiff of it.

    So is that the Opium (whatever was left of it) that did this.. or was it the Bogart PH? Or the combination of these two?

    Either way, I'd be damn scared too if any men stalked me like that...BUT if it were women, then its another story

    There was no Opium left as I took a shower, and I applied Opium lightly in the morning. It was Bogart alone that cost me 50 Baht for taxi!

    Something tells me it was coincidence. If you were wearing any perfume at all they might have still followed you. Still, damn scary.

    Wow, Kiatbkk, your excursions to the gym are much more interesting than mine. Those guys probably were - at least somewhat - interested in your scent because when you mentioned Axe, one of them asked which color, so, that guy apparently got specific enough in the questioning to really want to find out what you were wearing.

    Do you think you're going to continue to wear it? On the one hand, it must smell great on you, on the other, it's kind of a creep attractant.

    Hitting on him was flattering, grabbing his arm and asking him to come to his room was just downright weird, homophobia or not.

    Narathiwas junction. The dark footpath started from Silom graveyard, passing Silom Plaza and finally had to stop at the traffic junction--Narathiwas road.

    Have had a few weird encounters with people there so be careful if you'd ever go there. It's a quiet and dark area.

    Kiat, I own New Haarlem but not Rochas Man. In fact I don't recall ever testing Rochas Man. I have tested A-Men but prefer New Haarlem. Overall I'm not a big fan of gourmands, especially the very sweet ones, but I do own and enjoy a few of them.

    I think most reviews comment on their similarity, but I cannot say anything other than Rochas Man is a lot cheaper!

    I had a similiar experience with two beefy lesbians who followed the trail of Bogart from the shopping mall down to the carpark where they asked/demanded what it was I was wearing .... scary stuff .

    Just kidding but I bet the thing that you looked big, good smelling, shy and worried made them even more interested in following you.

    Funniest story I have heard regarding cologne.

    No one's mentioned Thai rent boys that moonlight--I mean daylight, as Turkish carpet dealers, but alas!

    It's too obvious . . .

    Therefore I cannot include myself in the genius category with this reply.

    I'm piqued.

    Now, I have always been of the opinion that when a gay man makes a verbal advance I should say " No, thank you. " And always, out of courtesy, include the " Thank you." in a gentle way. You don't want to make another human being feel like he's a sub-species from Mars.

    However, grabbing your arm as you're walking away , especially when you're facing two possible assailants, calls for a pithy saying from one of Buddha's Sutras, or from the old T.V. show Kung-Fu, followed by a an armlock and takedown.

    ( Though this may really get them excited. )

    But since, when he grabbed your arm, he made a business proposition. ( How very like a dealer in Turkish carpets! )
    " You come to my room, ok? "

    The "evil eye" was an appropiate means of de-escalation, or of reaching the moment of truth and fists, while you were still facing them.

    They backed off and you to crossed the street and took a taxi. Well done.

    I don't care if you lived 3 min away. Forget the tough guy bit, you thought fast on your feet.

    A+

    Cheers, grasshopper!
