    I suppose you could use it for layering, and an aftershave should work for that ...

    But if I recall, correctly, Avon's Leather really is more "butch" than a lot of modern fragrances for men - so it's almost a waste to cover it up.

    I feel the gayest in Chanel Antaeus (because "gayest" and "Antaeus" rhyme, and everybody knows that poetry is très gay), and the butchest in Guerlain Plus que Jamais (because when I smell it, it makes me think only of hot babes)

    ... but that's just me...

    Women seem to love the smell of Drakkar Noir on a man. It's one of my favorite scents, so I can understand why they do. So when I wear Drakkar, I feel like a stud.

    Yes. I think all men should take note of what gay/bi men have to say about fragrance. They should also listen to them when they say not to wear pleated pants or over-sized golf shirts - you know, the ones wear the "short sleeves" go down past their elbows.

    For that matter, no man should wear trouser cuffs if he is under 5'10" tall.

    I definitely agree that a fragrance is not per se sexy or not -- it can only become so in interaction with the wearer's personality and manner.
    On my partner (gay male here) I especially like L'Ombre das l'Eau, because he is a country boy from the mountains who loves nature, plants, and hiking, so it really reflects his personality. Plus it is just a great fragrance, with all the natural sensuality of early Summer. I also like Meharees on him, just because it is the opposite of what one would imagine being suitable for his personality, so it creates a bit of a surprise twist.
    A former boyfriend really pulled off Eau du Sud very sexily in warm weather -- the salty herbal citrus really shimmers in the heat and brings to my mind the word "sultry".

    I am straight. I must admit, I very rarely smell interesting scents on other men - were only it more common. I caught a police officer wearing Caron Pour Un Homme recently, and thought it daring - it actually worked, as strange a choice as it might sound. Sort of calming, which I thought would be a useful quality to be able to emanate for one in his line of work.

    I dislike loud, barbershop-type fragrances on other men - it strikes me as garish. If it is subtle, good. If it is interesting and subtle, even better.

    Edit: Forgot to add - it might sound an unusual admission, for I know they are held in low esteem, but I find the aquatics favoured by young men occasionally interesting. Largely because of the sheer panache of their sillage, which I find objectionable in more cologne-y compositions.

    For example, the other night, when leaving an academic library, there was a young man sitting on a bench outside it. When I was a good fifteen feet away, I smelled this aquatic sillage-monster that (this was genuinely my perception) extended these _tentacles_ an obscene distance through the warm night air. It was more like a creature, possibly an alien kraken, than a fragrance. Impossible for me to wear such things - not at all my stylistic inclination - but it can cut a certain dash on the young.

    I'm gay. I'm going wild when someone wears Antaeus or Egoiste.
    And I feel sexy wearing Coromandel. Getting loads of compliments from women btw when wearing Coromandel.
    So it might be a nice tip for straight guys. Not sure if (gay) guys like it in general, but my boyfriend really does.

    A gorgeous sexy man who's wearing M7, Chergui, L'Air du Desert Marocain, Lonestar Memories, or Tobacco Vanille ... will definitely grab my *ahem* full attention ! ~ (Ah, ... & Dior Homme Intense or Black Orchid on a certain right guy could get me all hot under the collar too !)

    On me personally I like Coromandel, PG18, Tuscan Leather, Ambre 114, Vetiver Extraordinaire , and also M7 ...

    Plus I wished my own skin smelled naturally of LesNez's L'Antimatiere ... which is just THE most divine skinscent amber/musk EVER !!

    My answer to the question directed at straight guys: I feel sexiest in Drakkar Noir. That's the short answer. To add another dimension to the answer I feel sexy and somehow "happier" in Boss Bottled.

    I am straight, but can appreciate a fragrance on another man just like I can say Chris Daughtry is handsome. And like that, I think it depends on the person. I smelled Unforgivable on an older African American friend of mine, and enjoyed it so much I bought it... It sucks on me, so I gave it away. I have found Eternity for Men original to smell really nice on others, On me, I would say an Oud like Cuir d'Aribie, BUT, that is raw and untamed. I think If I were gay, I would need to feel something for the guy first before I was affected by the scent. It is like clothes. Some men can get away with black t shirt, black sport jacket, and others just look foolish. Yep, I think an honest man can appreciate scents on other men too.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Another thought. A scent isn't sexy, but an association with it is. Some sub-cultures in the USA use a strong smelling stuff called "PINE SOL" to clean with, and their houses perpetually smells of it. To my sub-culture, we think it smells like someone trying to cover up dirt/bugs. SO... it isn't the scent, but what you associate with it.

    I'm a Gayer. I don't get all the Antaeus and Egoiste buzz, I think that's a generational thing. Don't get me wrong I think they're both great frags but neither of them screams sexy to me. I like musks and sandalwood based fragrances on men, or properly woody Patchoulis so Borneo 1834, Clair de Musc, Musk Pure, Urban Suede, Santal Massoia all good, very good indeed. I also have a thing about citrus colognes on men, mostly proper classics like the Guerlain colognes. Also Derby.... yummy.

    I don't give a damn what a sexy guy smells like, as long as he's sexy! (ok, given it's not a downright repulsive fragrance he's wearing).
    But if I had to choose, I'd get even more turned on if he were wearing a fougère...
    Fougères are sexy!
    I, myself, feel sexy when wearing a fougère (did I mention that fougères are sexy?) or an intense gourmand/oriental.

    2) Straight men: In your opinion, which fragrances make you smell the sexiest?

    30 year old man here - and I guess it's a tossup between several. Aventus, GIT and Royal Oud stands out, together with Tuscan Leather especially. Those are my prime suspects, with plenty other to go, but I'll just leave it at that for now. Interesting question by the way.

    As far as I know, only the Pheromone scents offer different scents for different sexual orientations. Still, there isn't any proof that cologne/perfume pheromone mixes actually work on humans.

    I am straight but I guess if I wasn't, I'd like the same scents that I love/like wearing myself.

    Straight here. I feel on top of the world when wearing either Coromandel or Tuscan Leather. I don't know about sexy but my confidence shoots through the roof when wearing one of those so if confidence equals sexy then yes, a fragrance definitely can help project a certain aura.

    Haha, stevolution...I love the "biddy-boppy" reference. I am a straight female and never could put the right word to the endless stream of citrus infused florals walking around. I give you all credit for now I will have to use biddy boppy. The royalty check will be in the mail, lol. ;-) I do actually think royal water is sexy...in a light clean kinda way. I know almost nothing of men's fragrance but I do know that when I pass a man that smells amazing, it DOES tend to weaken the knees a little. So, that said, men, if YOU like it and YOU feel sexy in it...chances are high others will do the same.
