I don't know if it is because the crowd I hang with these days are older than the crowd I used to hang with but when I was in middle school and high school I always used to smell people walking by me. College I didn't smell it as much but it was still there.
These days I rarely smell someone with cologne or perfume on. I would say maybe a couple times per year at most.
Is it because people don't wear cologne/perfume as much these days?
Is it because fragrances these days are not like the "powerhouses" of the past?
Is the crowd that I am around just more mature and they don't drench themselves for fear of being "that cologne guy"?
Maybe a bit of all these?
