    what do you consider the best fragrance (preferably niche) to wear to the gym and spritz in the changing room afterwards.

    For the gym I use things like Chanel Eau de Cologne, Lubin's Eau Neuve, and in the past I've used Vetiveryo a lot. For after, that depends - If I'm going out for dinner, I may spritz some EdC again, which goes away quickly, and then put on something more serious later.

    My scents for the Gym are these at the moment:

    Mugler Cologne
    Creed Silver Mountain Water
    and my preferred blend for the gym at the moment is:
    6 parts CK One, 1 part Guerlain Habit Rouge and 2 parts Joop! Jump

    For after the gym - any of my 282 bottles of unique juice will do just fine
    Why search for an 'after the gym' scent is beyond me ?!?
    You are out of the locker room in what.....90 seconds and then you enter into normal life - what do you wear in normal life, your normal frags of course.......don't get this 'after the gym' frag stuff at all...........

    Default Re: Best fragrance for the gym and just after

    I try to avoid wearing a fragrance or applying one right before going to the gym. I preferably just wear a deodorant antiperspirant when i workout and wait till after my shower to apply a fragrance.

    I smelled a lot of Fierce last night in the gym. Light Blue is a fav.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    well the scent i would spray on for the gym i would also take with me to spritz a few times after i shower. I like the sound of creed silver mountain water for the gym i think that may work well. I have a sample at the moment that i am enjoying so its on my wish list!

    Well, any good Eau de Cologne really. Clarins Eau Dynamisante would be perfect.

    Post Gym, anything from this thread:

    As someone who is in the gym almost everyday, I really advise against using cologne specifically for the gym. It is a distraction, plain and simple. If you insist on it, go with something as safe as humanly possible.

    I enjoy fragrance as much or more than anyone in the gym but the last thing I want when I'm doing sets is for some strong smell to come in and take my head out of where it should be, no matter how nice it is.

    Soap would be the answer your looking for. It can be bought in most pharmacies, department stores, or grocery stores. Watch out for the batch variations.

    I don't know what to put while you're on gym... I guess a deodorant cause an eau de toilette is too much for the gym. After the gym a perfume like Chanel Allure sport or Cool Water by Davidoff is a good choice.

    Default Re: Best fragrance for the gym and just after

    I still don't get it. When I'm done at the gym, I shower, spritz on a frag and take my cloths on and I'm OUT. Why the he_l wear a special frag for AFTER the gym. Do you also wear a special light frag for when you are done with your grocery shopping and a special one for after playing snooker or pool at the billiard club

    I don't get it and never will. When I'm done working out and out of the shower I want a fragrance that will last the rest of the day and not some light sporty frag that may tell the 1 and a half human I meet that actually smell me that I'm wearing a dedicated sporty AFTER THE GYM FRAG

    To each his own, but after the gym frags are rubbish IMHO
    When I do workout I concentrate much better if I smell good, rather than smelling the sweaty bastards surrounding me in the gym........ YMMV

    I wouldn't wear anything in the gym, but for afterward I like Cool Water.
    I don't know why, it just seems to be perfect for after the gym.

    I quit wearing fragrances while at the gym, but when I did one spray of Chrome Sport to the chest was good for me. After working out and taking a cool shower wearing Cool Water feels very refreshing though.

    This.

    The gym is a place for focus and hard work. A great Gym should smell of only disinfectant/sweat!

    You guys are to blame for me having to wear 7-8 sprays of juice to the gym, can't stand people around me distracting my workout with their horrid stinky sweaty gross smell

    I mostly go to the gym straight after work, so will still be 'wearing' whatever I applied that morning.

    After workout / shower I like to go for a liberal application of Jicky EdT.

    I'm not sure if it is appropriate or not to wear a fragrance to the gym, but I tend to think that it is. I just wonder, if the gym is off limits to fragrance, then what else is? Is work off limits? School? The movies? It seems that this view drastically limits one's capacity for wearing fragrances.

    I tend to think that if you are willing to wear a fragrance around strangers, then you should be considerate and informed as to how much and what to wear. However, I also think that wearing a fragrance is a statement and one should be able to assert himself in this expression.

    Don't think the gym (or anywhere for that matter) should be 'off-limits' to fragrance, but perspiring heavily indoors will make scents perform differently to how they might do during 'standard' usage, and I think one ought to bear that in mind.
