    Default Good cheap cologne to apply after PE?

    PE = Physical Education BTW, English version of Gym class.

    I'm 14 1/2, so a cheap fresh one would suffice, obviously I'm not as clued up as most of you so it'd be nice to hear your insight.

    Anything from the Belcam smellalike line. These scents are light, fresh and inexpensive. They are a pleasure for the beach and travel.

    I like the CK One Summer, which, I think is like the 2004 version. They even have versions of Bleu de Chanel and Gucci Guilty PH.

    As for the Belcam line - is there anywhere where I can order from to the UK? I can't find one, thanks.

    Tous Man Sport, easily found under 30 dollars online. Nautica Voyage or Blue are both great options, as well.

    I would just use a strong deodorant such as AXE or and AXE body spray. If you must use cologne, I would go with something that smells clean and fresh such as Mugler Cologne or even Prada Amber pour homme. Just don't over spray.

    Default Re: Good cheap cologne to apply after PE?

    I would stay away from Axe. Nautica Voyage would be perfect. Be light on the trigger.

    PE for PE, check out Perry Ellis Portfolio. The original. Very nice pear scent, and underrated. You'll smell good, and probably like nobody else around you.

    Just take a nice shower and use deoderant. You're young. Don't go down this road kid. It's a dark, dark path

    This! A) It's practical and B) if you work up quite the sweat and then immediately apply a fragrance, there's always a chance it goes a bit sour. Stick with the deodorant.

    I would simply apply deodorant then. If you don't sweat much during gym I'd use a light sport scent, something that just smells clean. There's nothing worse than smelling like sweat and b.o. and fragrance.

    No - I don't sweat much really, just a bit of B/O. I usually use a non-scented deoderant

    Default Re: Good cheap cologne to apply after PE?

    I would go with a scented deodorant then. Old Spice has some pretty good scented options. Personally I use Matterhorn from Old Spice. You could always couple this with a similar scent like Givenchy Play Intense and Axe Dark Temptations stick deodorant.

    Old Spice or Axe. Just one that's not to strong

    What'd Mom or Dad say?

    That said, in my 50 years I've not come across anything that does a better job than Mitchum (clear gel sport). Used in the morning, you should be good for the day even if you are a beast.

    Agreed, that stuff is nuclear strength, odorless, and won't stain your shirts. Accept no substitutes!

    As for what to wear after gym class, I'd say the same stuff you put on in the morning? Get something relatively cheap and locally available, Burberry has some great frags for young guys for example.

    Keep in mind what your body is going to do after a workout. Whatever fragrance you use, it will probably start projecting like a beast in whatever class you have immediately after PE, so be careful to choose something light and fresh.

    +1! I use the unscented Mitchum deodorant and definitely recommend it. If we're talking about the same stuff, it's Mitchum Power Gel (unscented). Really, it's great.

    Lush's Dirty -- it's cheap, widely available in the UK, and was designed as an alternate for when a quick shower isn't available. It's very, very strong though, and overwhelmingly minty/fresh right off the bat. Lasts an insane amount of time, too.
