    If they don't like it, it's not because it smells bad from a hygienic or lack of it perspective. It's because it doesn't match their taste. What next, you won't wear a a certain colored tshirt?

    This applies ot everyone except wife's. So far she doesn't like Straight to Heaven & Chene. At least she's consistent. They're both boozy.

    There are certain things one can not wear in public, just because one doesn't feel it represent his style, can not wear with confidence,
    For me this would be to wear short skirt in the winter, i can wear shorts in the summer and don't feel bad but to wear it in the winter doesn't fit my style, so you have to make an effort so to say to bend your usual routine....not everyone can pull out everything any time.......its human:-)

    I love real fougere bengale, i love some other men's frags and i would not wear them because its just not me, when i put them on.....so its possible to love something and not beeing able to wear it:-) .......in some occasions....or Onda from veroprofumo i love it so much....but to wear it every single day...hm not sure:-)

    Yes i know many men who don't wear certain colours of whatever that they think is feminine there ( red slippers lol)....i cant understand it but then think of some of my irrationalities:-) and noone can persuade me its the same thing:-)

I personally wouldn't feel good about my self if I wore a fragrance that nobody else liked. What if you were the one smelling something nasty on another person, how would you feel/react?

    Let's keep this discussion going!

    I'm not sure why you assume I live in a society/social circle similar to yours where apparently people have reservations to certain perfumes and amount used.

    From my travels & general knowledge of other cultures, I can say the majority welcome perfume.

    Its like this: you put a perfume on, it doesn't matter at all what others think, but if you think while wearing a perfume what others think, means that perfume doesn't suit you:-) ......i had many situations where i was thinking about perfume i am wearing:-) which i love and appreciate but noticed i am not confident if others would smell it on me:-) ......the other day original fougere bengale was sooo gorgeous, but on a moment i felt like a man who was smoking and drinking some whiskey:-) .....or with Onda ,i think about myself in 3 rd face:-) ......when i wear what i love then its like second skin.....i just enjoy it and think how gorgeous it smells.....and fougere bengale smells gorgeous too:-)

    I know many males that lets say have issue with red colour:-) they can wear red shirt but not red slippers lol,.......its simply state of mind, we are not that flexible as we may think we are:-) at least not all of us............

    It takes some effort to pull something through, and if you constantly think about it while wearing it that is not ok....and for some scents i cant help it :-) although i may love them!........and i think i am rather so to say flexible...don't care much about other peoples opinion:-)

    I love Kouros but it's far too potent for me to wear.

    Hey guys... Been lurking for a while, but finally registered.

    Anyways, I completely agree with A*Men.

    I love it so much, but I rarely wear it on public. Like everyone says, it's a very polarizing scent, and I'm just really worried about running into someone who will have strong negative reactions to it.

    Narciso Rodriguez Musc Edition

    I enjoy the smell but it just seems a bit matured and feminine for me to feel 100% comfortable wearing in public. Maybe one day I'll round up enough courage to wear it but for now I will wear a spritz before bed every now and then.

    I've got a few full 4 ounce bottles of the original/vintage Giorgio for Men (GoBH) but I can only wear a tiny amount because the patchouli is too camphorous to me. I'l have to put at least one on my swap list, because I can't imagine using all it up unless I live to be about 300. LOL.

    I can only wear certain fragrances because of my climate. Also, if it's too feminine or perfumey there's no way I'm going to smell like a woman all day no matter how beautiful it smells. If I like it enough to buy it I'll give it to my wife and enjoy it on her.

    Apart from the fragrances I'd like to wear, but are objectively unavailable- for one reason or another- in retail, I can hardly think of a fragrance I wouldn't wear for subjective reasons.

    Virgin Island Water. My wife thinks its very girly and finds it very strange on a man. It's the only thing I'm self conscious about wearing.

    I had forgotten I was going when I put it on, but I wore a huge squirt from a tester of Dzing to a smallish class. I initially felt a little self conscious because I didn't know what it was going to morph into after reading all the reviews about stinky circus's, but all it got was compliments. They all loved it.

    There aren't any I wouldn't wear that I truly love. There are plenty I wouldn't wear for other reasons.
