This one is for the amazing gay men!!!! I thought it would be interesting to ask: What scent do you like to smell on another man? What do you think is sexy? What scent draws you in?????? What do you get the most male compliments on??????? HAVE FUN with this and I can't wait to see your responses!!!! HAGD! \
Honestly, I'd like to smell any of my favorite fragrances on a guy, as long as it wasn't the same as what I was wearing that day. Can't say there's any one particular fragrance I find sexy, but orientals and florals are more inviting than citrus or aquatics ( again, reflecting my tastes in general ).
I'm the only gay guy I've ever met - aside from quite a few fellow Basenoters - who is into fragrances. Most, in fact, specifically state how they hate fragrances, so there's no such thing as a "first date" fragrance for me; it's far too risky.
Well, let's see ... I have been with more than one guy wearing PI,
especially this hung, blond dude, that I have vivid memories of.
J'adore blond dudes ... and, my oh my, this one in particular was a
Therefor I like PI on a man, brings back memories ... sticky and sweet!
But a (clean) sweaty man, wearing no frag at all, can sometimes be
the best smelling dude on the dancefloor ...
I know that my fellow gay BNers, and some ladies, will agree on this one!
I'm not gay, but my boyfriend is. I like to smell John Varvatos on him.
My friend Steve is gay as musical theater and he loves Fierce. He also loves Millesime Imperial and Kenneth Cole Reaction.
I'm not gay, but when I worked @ Macy's, the floor manger there who is gay always complimented me when I would wear Paris Hilton for Men or BLV.

ROTFL! I *love* the way he spoofs perfume advertising. You should see the ad he did spoofing Sophie Dahl in those Poison ads!
Thanks for sharing this!
BTW, I can't say if I beleive there is a collection of scents any group of people of any given persuasion would prefer. People have different tastes in perfume. Personally, I'd love to smell a strong, indolic jasmine on a man...it exudes virility and sensuality.

I like my colognes how I like my men... strong and sweet.

On me, the guys like Sueur de Couilles... it doesn't smell bad on a str8 guy either, if you can get that close. Kind of a skin scent, really.

I reckon good ole Eternity for Men smells great on guys but Id go along with the Duke , clean sweaty hairy chests PHWOAAAAAAAAAAAAAR
What a tragedy! Cologne on man is so sexy!! Come to Boston and Providence, RI. It seems like every guy at gay clubs use cologne.
I'd say the favorites are AF Fierce (nothing like conforming to stereotypes), Dolce & Gabanna FM and Armani Code. Nothing revolutionary but I happen to like each of those scents.
Serge Lutens Mkk or CDG Avignon.

From my experiences, I haven't noticed any differences in what straight and gay men think smells good on men. Not to hijack the thread, but I think the whole straight/gay thing is a false dichotomy anyway in terms of human sexuality.
I don't think you can beat the scent of clean, does it for me all of the time.
I had put on 2 light spritzes of Derby by Guerlain (check out my SotD posted earlier today) before going over to some friends (who happen to be gay) this evening. Out of the blue, one of them said, "One of you is wearing a very nice scent..." I spelled out which fragrance it was. (He's actually lived in Paris so he was familiar with the boulevard where it can be purchased ).
