    Default Best Scent for Keeping HerAway, LOL!

    I saw the thread on best scent for love making and thought this would be a funny light hearted thread. If I wore Versace Dreamer, she wouldn't come near me, lol!

    Hmm, my g/f is really quite receptive to scents, loves to try them with me.. sometimes we even do sniff-a-thons (yes, we're both dorks) where we test a number of samples together on cards and compare thoughts about them. Anyhow, she likes or at least finds inoffensive most things in my wardrobe, but there are a few she has really disliked:

    Les Nez The Unicorn Spell - she said it reminded her of the smell of a nursing home along with cigarette ash. I was always on the fence w/ this one, considering grabbing a bottle, but given that I don't absolutely love it and she more or less hates it, I'll pass.

    AdG & Chrome: The signature scents (go figure, right?) of her ex. God, I have such better taste than he does!

    LOL - great idea.

    For me, it's Kouros.

    I can't believe it, she wouldn't come near you?
    Versace The Dreamer is very attractive for women. There might be exceptions as well, but its weird, suave, sensual notes act like a chick-magnet.
    Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.

    NONONONONONON! I cannot believe this!HAVANA has been launched in Greece lately again after years, I m planning to buy for my Hub, but he is not enthousiast about perfume, so for sure I USE IT MYSELF with something else layering.I am kept away by CHANNEL ALLURE HOMME SPORT... YSL KOUROS..., everything of GAULTIER.The best ever perfume on a man for me- even if i m crazy for fragrances , specially for the men i am minimalist- I m attracted by something peppery but subtle, not a "monster sillage"- has been KITON on an ex of mine- unfurtunately it was the only positive about him...

    Creed Chevrefeuille - I love the beginning of the scent, but somewhere in the middle, it just goes all wrong on me. The lady has forbade it.

    Haha..great topic. but bias of the majority..I'd give "Caron - Yatagan" and "Knize Ten" the vilifying vote...these good companions can cause up more of a raucous then bloody napalm!!!

    Oh, It's freaking AMAZING to be back people!!

    Well, most gay men are turned off by female scents,
    so I'll go with them.
    With that said, I have scored butch men in Hypnotic P.,
    Spellbound, Ysatis (!), Obsession for Women to name
    a few ... so nothing is impossible!

    Most of my female friends hate the classic Fahrenheit, so
    maybe that is the biggest lady turn off I have?!

    My gf went through a phase where she couldn't stand anything with cumin. Thankfully, she's over it. The only fragrance I've ever heard her say she truly detests is Spirit/Antonio Banderas.

    I never understood the uber popularity of M7. Tried it and just didn't think it was much at all. To each their own. If the world only needed 5 men's fragrances, Kouros, Havana, Santal Noble, Orginial Santal and Rive Gauche would be it.

    I love M7 and so does my girlfriend. She was trying to get me to wear it when it was 90 degrees out though two days ago. I wound up wearing Versace Pour Homme because she didn't want me to wear M7 Fresh either.

    if i come anywhere near my wife in Creed Bois de Portugal, she makes me wash it off.

    She says it makes me smell like her father. Which, as you can imagine, isn't exactly a sexual turn-on.

    The only scent my other half has told me smelt awful was Amouage Epic, when I sprayed a sample of it. She hated the scent and I didn't like it either.
    The cheapest scent for keeping her away and it doesn't cost a penny would be Eau d'Onion pits. Just don't wash under your arms for a week and you'll soon discover it
