    Default Noooooo!!!! She likes Cool Waters!!! lol

    Hey guys. Wow! So last night I was chatting with this young lady that I am absolutely smitten with, and we got to talking about fragrances. So she tells me that she really likes Cool Waters.
    Cool Waters?!!!!! I HATE Cool Waters! lol I grew up smelling it on my dad, and I never liked it! lol He still has a bottle, but doesn't wear it as much as the Dolce & Gabbana ph that I introduced him to.

    So I applied a little bit on my hand today, and it didn't smell that bad on me. Truthfully, the last few times I've tried it, I have each time found it more appealing than the prior try (but still can't say that I LIKE it). It seems to dry down to a kinda minty almost potpourri-like fragrance. Not too bad. I am actually over here considering wearing it every now and then, just for her, lol. Ain't that sad? lol

    But seriously, wearing fragrances isn't just about smelling good, but it can actually influence your mood and confidence, and I don't know if this one quite does this for me. So, I doubt I will wear this, even if it's just to impress sista girl. lol I'll just have to give her some new fragrances to fall in love with. lol Wait till she start noticing this Reflection on me!

    Wear it if she likes it. Why not? The thing is with many people - women and men - scents they may associate with a past love have a lot of power.

    It's an inexpensive CVS kind of scent, but one of the loves of my life wore Elizabeth Taylor's Passion. (Still does). I'll always perk up when I smell that one.

    Ehhhhh...I dunno man. lol I am CONSIDERING it, but...I dunno. I feel like I have so many better fragrances, I couldn't possibly do the CW. I mean...I dunno. I may have to build myself up to wearing it, like wearing it a few days in a row to get accustomed to it before I wear it in here presence.

    Use the money you've saved by buying Cool Water and use it on a good date at a good restaurant.

    For once, I TOTALLY disagree with StylinLA. IMO, you do NOT want to have her associate you with some other guy(s) in her past via Cool Water. It's much less likely she will associate you two on a "dirty sex" level and more the negative stuff "he cheated on me = I can't trust you" or "I'm still not totally over him so let's take it REAL slow sexually - but good news! We can still go out to dinner every night!"

    I say be your own man! Wear what you want. Now that said, if you knew she absolutely hated something, I wouldn't wear that and make her suffer. That won't get you anywhere either!

    Dump her! No, just kidding Larwiz! This is what makes fragrance so amazing - the power it possesses to induce memories. Last Christmas I was talking to my sister-in-law about mens fragrances and let her sample some of my niches. After her testing Serge Lutens, Creed, Amouage, Nasomatto and several more she asked me if I owned L'eau de Issey Miyake (I feel your pain StylinLA). I asked her why and she went on and on about how it's the best fragrance EVER for men because every guy she knew in college wore it! If my lady wanted me to wear a fragrance that I hated I'd oblige her. However, I would not compromise if she wanted me to wear that one scent all the time (I simply cannot imagine wearing ONE fragrance - that would drive me insane). Every time a friend tells me they only wear one fragrance and can't understand why I own so many I ask them if they wear the same jeans and shirt everyday!

    You are trying to like it. Don't excruciate yourself (just joking)
    I don't like it too. But it's wearable if i try.
    Wear whatever she likes, If you think she is sensitive about this case. It's not a big deal. Probably she is worth for a bit devotion.

    "Cool Waters" It actually sounds good in the plural. I wore "Cool Waters" during part of the 90's and still have some vintage juice.

    We don't know who or what she associates with Cool Water, do we? That would be interesting to ask.

    Ineke Derring Do is a niche copy of Cool Waters, maybe a little better (updated). So you can give her what she wants, and still live with yourself.

    If it's one of her male relatives, or close friend who wears Cool Water that is a good thing, but if it's a past guy...you better find another frag she likes so if there is a next boyfriend she will be asking if he has your frag.

    Larwiz, but how does she feel about Havana Vanille and Ambre Narguille?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe she just hasn't smelled that many different frags. But wear Cool Water if she likes it, nothing wrong with that.

    Great thread!

    Of course we don't know why she likes Cool Water. It might be that she smelled it from a bottle on a brother's/uncle's/friend's dresser (who doesn't check out dresser bottles when friends close enough to us are open to it) or even from smelling it at a fragrance counter once. So maybe it isn't a previous boyfriend issue.

    But otherwise Larwiz, what a great reason to become familiar with a scent and even be struck by how it isn't as bad as you'd thought? Sounds like a rich experience of plus and minus with a fragrance and how that makes our smell-thoughts deeper.

    With a pretty girl at the end of it I don't see any disadvantage involved.

    Oh yeah, and if she hangs out with Larwiz she's going to get skooled in fragrances.

    Larwiz, was the fragrance chat with your smittee initiated by you? You post didn't say. If so, relax, and wear all your favorite fragrances. I think the object of your desires was just contributing to the conversation and adding that she also knew something about frags. She was not saying you are doomed unless you wear Cool Water.

    I like the last line of your post! Stick with that attitude to impress and win fair maiden (sista girl)

    Ofcourse. What I didn't mention is...I haven't tried a whole lot of women's fragrances, but the one fragrance for women that I think smells awesome is Dior Addict. So I ask her what she wears, and she pulled some kinda spray outta her bag. So I ask her if she's ever heard of Dior Addict. Do you know she said she owns it!!! I almost proposed to her right then and there! LOL

    lol@ dump her. lol So you would wear it occassionally, but not all the time? Interesting. I really don't like the idea of wearing a fragrance that I don't love, but...if it puts me in a better light, then...maybe.
