    Default Friend zone buster?

    I've been told by a good female friend that she absolutely loves the smells of both tea tree oil and baby powder... Do you know of anything that smells like both of those, yet remains masculine? I'm sort of stuck in the friend zone, but I am making headway, and smelling like her two favorite things can't hurt

    Burberry Brit has that clean baby powder feel to it.

    But in the end it's really up to you. Not the fragrance.

    True, but the right fragrance can really boost confidence. I think he's barking up the right tree. Good luck OP!!

    Ha ha, I completely agree that it's totally up to me- but really, if a girl smelled exactly like my favorite things; I'd be just that little bit more interested I figure it works both ways. Plus, even if it doesn't work, I figure I get a new cologne, I can't lose

    Great plan.. Strong memory association and triggers with the sense of smell. I say go with Burberry Brit. That one was a killer for me with my former lady friend

    If you are relying on your fragrance *in any way* to get the girl, you will not get the girl. Sorry to be bearer of bad news.
    And I'm not buying the "it will give him confidence" thing. In fact, I would argue that the same mindset that makes you think a frag will help is part of the reason you got friend zoned in the first place.

    Speaking from experience, I have broken out of that zone twice. Both had loved a specific scent on me which they just could not stop smelling on me; one expressing even that it was a turn on (that one being Aventus). You can't be so closed-minded and say it won't help. From my experience, it sure doesn't hurt

    Believe me, I've got faith in myself Really, I'm not exactly a slouch. But I do think people in general like as much positive sensory input as possible. I've got looks, a personality and I've got a pretty nice voice, why not smell great and be a quadruple threat? I'm sorry things haven't worked out for you Cameron, but it was nice to hear your thoughts.

    Bvlgari Notte sounds like it will fit the bill very nicely

    The most baby powdery of the baby powder:

    Verace Blue Jeans (Might as well be renamed Johnson and Johnson Pour Homme)
    Burberry Brit
    Armani Code
    Midnight in Paris
    Versace The Dreamer

    I don't know of anything that smells like baby powder AND Tea tree oil, but my leave in conditioner is made with tea tree oil. You could always layer up.

    Top 5:
    1. Axe Kilo
    2. Lectric Shave
    3. Vicks Vapor Rub
    4. Febreze Pour Homme
    5. Preferred Stock

    I have to disagree this smells more like baby wipes to my nose. prada amber intense has a dark powdery feel to it. burberry brit as others have mentioned is powdery as well. good luck!

    Mona di Orio's Ambre smells exactly like baby powder to me. But please don't buy it just for this purpose; get a sample if you can because it's expensive.

    I'd suggest not trying to smell like Tea Tree oil.

    Good luck!

    +1 to this. Ive heard it smells like baby wipes, or those wet towels on airplanes, but it really does have a spicy baby powder vibe to it. I hated the smell, because of this note, but if youre looking for baby powder, definitely try it. In fact, I have a sample if you want. I can just send it over in a regular envelope.

    To those saying it wont help... while I agree it won't help in the traditional sense, knowing I smell good (even if only to myself) does make me feel a little more confident, because I am actively enjoying it. Don't you think someone who is enjoying a scent and life in general, having a good time, seems more appealing? Also, there is a strong correlation between scent and memories. She likes baby powder and tea tree oil, so maybe it reminds her of something pleasant. So smelling the OP will remind her of pleasant things. Doesn't "help his game", but if she enjoys it, everyone wins.

    Edit: If you use hair product such as wax, try "Tea Tree Shaping Cream" by Paul Mitchell. Smells great (you could layer with your baby powder scent!) , and I used to use it in my hair. Good stuff. If you don't already use hair product, consider using some, even if just a little. Makes even the best hair better.

    No fragrance will help. What might help is you completely changing your attitude and "game" with her.

    Best wishes1!

    Although I can admire a man on a mission, suggest you keep those two scents separate!

    Baby Powder- Demeter has a roll on called "Baby Powder" for under 10 USD. It smell like...you guessed it Baby Powder

    Tea Tree Oil- Just go the health store or a Trader Joe's and get a very small size of tea tree oil. It will last the rest of your life.
    Use VERY SPARINGLY.

    She might enjoy those scents but do not assume she wants her guy to smell like baby powder or tea oil. Don't try too hard or you might end up in the friends zone permanently. Just some food for thought.

    My suspicion is that you need something that invites her into your personal space, thereby causing her to redefine her perceptions of you. The issue is that even though she says that she likes baby powder and tea tree oil, perhaps these should be interpreted as a starting point rather than taken at face value. I would definitely find out what scents she thinks are great (avoid ones owned by a prior boyfriend) and then find one similar or one that capitalizes on her favorite scent's strengths.

    Good luck, young Padawan.
