    Default Whats a good cologne for the outdoors: camping,fishing,etc

    Trees all around, you set up your tent and make a fire, theres a lake nearby, you decide to fish - what cologne are you wearing? And the weather is warmer than cooler. I'm asking because i need a good cologne for this type of situation.

    Aventus, I'd say has a fresh dirty/dark green/earthy vibe with some wood in there....so it'd make sense to me...along with a little smokiness that would seem to pair up well with a fire.

    and

    Green Irish Tweed, not really a Creed fan boy but I have these two in my collection and I think they'd be perfect.

    Parfum d’Habit - It is a very outdoorsy and forestry earthy green scent.
    Currently wearing: Eau de Santal by Floris

    Profumum Thundra and Ichnusa...and in the same situation when the weather is cooler, SL Fille en Aiguilles.

    lol, honestly, the off spray does have that signature outdoorsy scent when you go into the outdoors. It wouldnt be a true camping trip without the off

    Two immediately coming to my mind, a refined one, Sisley's Eau de Campaigne, and a bolder one, Aqua Di Selva.

    Ditto on the Off. However there are any number of weaker DEET concentration frags out there which may not be as harsh. I remember some Cutter's formulations from the old days that were 100%, whereas many today are down around 7.5% and work just fine if applied liberally.

    I've never been one to wear fragrances in the backcountry, but Dsquared He Wood Rocky Mountain Wood seems fitting. It's woody, rugged and pretty darn manly, which seems appropriate in rugged terrain. Read up on it, it was created to capture the essence of the rocky mountains.

    Vetiver seems "outdoorsy" to me. The Guerlain, Sycamore, and Encre Noir.

    I dont necessarily want to smell like the outdoors when I'm outdoors, which is why I dont do vetivers in these situations.

    With the number of sprays that some of you fellas use it probably works just as well as Off All kidding aside I don't think it's logical to be using cologne at the same time as Off since that smell will just overpower whatever it is you're wearing.

    Taking a cologne camping is kind of strange, like bringing a laptop/electronics or shaving.. you are going camping to get away from civilization and be in the rugged outdoors, it would be silly to wear cologne while camping imo.

    Bathe in the lake, chop some wood, sit by the campfire and smell like a real man. Maybe it's just a Canadian thing...

    I'd go fragrance free on these occasions and settle on a strong, efficient deodorant instead.

    Cool Re: Whats a good cologne for the outdoors: camping,fishing,etc

    Offhand, Fou d'Absinthe, Hinoki, Selection Verte, and the aforementioned English Fern

    Perhaps you should check out the 'Coneheads Group' here at BN?

    I recommend going fragrance free, and slap on that suncreen and insect repellent! Don't think you'd wanna layer a cologne on that do you!

    I agree. The bugspray will mix with the fragrance and it would just be a disaster

    If you truly wish to wear a fragrance in the great outdoors then perhaps an evergreen scent might be your first choice:Good Fir by Krigler, Eau de Merveilles by Hermes, Original Pino Silvestre by Silvestre all have the forest notes that should compliment your camping experience. I wonder if a fragrance will turn you into a mosquito beacon, however.

    None. This should be a time to experience the smells of nature
