    Arrow I just want to smell like a man.

    Have your say, which is the most masculine scent to ever envelope your nostrils with pure crystal alpha manhood.

    Besides sweat, stench, etc etc.



    What fragrance would you associate with the picture above ?

    Most manly scent? Probably a powerhouse leather/fougère from the 70's or 80's.

    But what would Vin Diesel wear...? Habit Rouge, Opium PH?

    Honestly, that picture - I don't know who he is, so if he's a celeb I don't recognize him - makes me think of someone who likely wears something light, casual, and generic. This isn't meant to be derogatory, but most people don't think very much about what fragrance they wear, and most choices made without thinking too much are boring and predictable. There's nothing in the pic to make me think he's a fragrance fan, so with him, I imagine something like Cool Water or some light citrus.

    While wearing Opium pour Homme someone told me "you smell like a man should".

    Going back to the original post ... Old Spice would seriously work with that look. But any of the woodsy or lightly spiced masculine scents that dress down well would be fine.

    My choice for a celeb with iconic masculinity would be Spanish actor Javier Bardem. And I think Loewe para Hombre would suit him quite well.

    Thank you for the eye candy, Trapper, (says would- be cougar joining in). I can contribute nothing meaningful to the discussion but, as fantasy, I imagine that Vin Diesel smells like motor oil- because of the scene in Pitch Black where he is shaving his head using motor oil as a lubricant. In real life, Ruggles is probably right- people have probably given him cases of Diesel over the years.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Fracas for Vin (i.e., does it matter what he wears?). But Antaeus is *my* favorite masculine (duh)...

    However, if you're using fragrance to signal your gender (a very malleable construct, contingent on time, place, and culture anyway) then perfume choice has an aspect of drag performance no matter what your actual gender is. Some like butch scents, some like femme, some like both. As long as you like it, wear it.

    Without question, the fragrance that I've received the most compliments from other men is Opium Pour Homme eau de parfum. I've owned and used over 200 fragrances in my lifetime since my last year in high school (1972) and Opium takes the prize and #1. It happens to be my signature fragrance and personal favorite of all time along with the original Lagerfeld (not today's "Lagerfeld Classic" which is reformulated from the original).

    However, that doesn't mean it's the most "masculine" fragrance, just the one that has garnered the most compliments. Most "masculine" or "manly" in my opinion? One of the very best....Aramis. It's both classy and classical in every sense of the word.

    ^ Got to admit though that Vin Diesel is an *honorable douche* in my books, if a douche at all. Yes, he's buff, yes he's often type-cast, but the guy is actually quite intelligent. I've even read that he's an avid player of Dungeons and Dragons. That's a huge anti-douche quality!

    I actually like the guy - if you watch recent interviews with him, he seems like a real interesting person to talk to.

    I don't think there's anything about the guy that's typical of what one might think of him. I'm not some fanboy, but there's more going on there than meets the eye. He is a D&D buff, and he was deeply involved with the development and production of "The Chronicles of Riddick." He seems to me to be more cerebral than one might think.

    You are all mistaken, Vin Diesel is the male version of Paris Hilton,AKA dumb on the outside, smart on the inside. Check his wiki page and you'll know he's more than just an actor. Brat Pitt is the complete opposite. Although it's been rumored he has the smallest penis in showbiz.
