    Cool Guilty Pleasure Fragrances

    Ok boys, time to get honest, what's a fragrance that you love but would be embarrassed to admit wearing? Is it 50 Cent, maybe an Antonio Banderas number; or are you secretly layering Britney's Midnight Fantasy underneath that Rive Gauche! Let's list them here! A few of mine:

    Tim McGraw Southern Blend
    Antonio Banderas
    Izod for Men
    Hillary Duff With Love (coconut-vanilla omg omg omg)

    Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier, as well as Fleur du Male. Realistically I have a bottle of some Bath and Body Works called Twighlight Woods for Men (or something similar) that I use in my car if I smoke in it which is rare but happens.

    JOOP! Homme probably. It's cheap, potent and hurts my nose upon spraying it but I love it because of nostalgia.

    I'm surprised anyone would be embarrassed to wear Au Masculin. If you like it then wear it, it's as simple as that for me. I wore that particular one to the office yesterday and the girls loved it!

    Not embarrassed really, just a bit of a guilty pleasure, like a chocolate bar. Love the anise in that one.

    I think I repurchased it 3 times by now, I'm currently out but I will probably get it again.

    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Eternity and Obsession for the nostalgia. Not really ashamed, just know they were so overly used during my college years. And come to think of it I recall liking the smell of the Original Old Spice as a kid. Would like to smell it again to see if it the same.

    Hollister SoCal...... Even though I have about 14 fragrances, it is probably my second favorite. Perhaps my nose hasn't matured yet, but it is just so calming and soothing...

    Great fragrance!

    I don't know if I have real guilty pleasures any more, now that I've overcome both "mainstream guilt" and "niche snob guilt". But I am surprised by how much my views can change on a fragrance, and I often feel guilty for having trashed it or having been very blasé about it. I enjoy being able to change my perspective on things, but I end up feeling that I need to admit the change, too, almost as a form of erratum.
