    Default Im off on a date in a couple of hours. What frag to wear !

    First date has taken place, scroll down to post #43 for help with 2nd date frag (at The movies)



    So I'm going on a date in a couple of hours, I live in the UK and its 13c and there is a 30% chance of rain today.

    Its been raining earlier and it not raining now.

    im taking my date for afternoon tea in a nice country house type setting.

    Smart casual (Slim(ish) raw denim jeans and a jumper or maybe a shirt without tie and A pair of Brogues.


    So which frag from my wardrobe should I wear ?

    Thanks

    From your wardrobe, I'll suggest either Bvlgari Aqva or Gucci PH2. I wore Aqva yesterday and got a compliment from a female coworker. It's great for rainy days in case it does rain. Gucci PH2 is just so agreeable and pleasant.

    Top 5:
    1. Axe Kilo
    2. Lectric Shave
    3. Vicks Vapor Rub
    4. Febreze Pour Homme
    5. Preferred Stock

    I also vote for Dior Homme. And I'm a girl. (To my nose Aventus is properly revolting and I would cross the street to avoid it - sorry chaps)

    Good luck on your date!! Remember not to spray on too much now.

    Gucci Pour Homme II. It's such a charming gentleman's scent.

    EDIT: D'oh! I should have finished reading the thread. Glad the date went well! On future dates, don't hesitate to pull out GphII. It's perfect for that. Cheers!

    Good choice Perhaps you should stick with it, since it might be the frag she is beginning to associate with you Good first impressions and all that

    Exactly. Plus, you don't want to look like you're trying too hard.

    Definitely a keeper. However, movie theater means close quarters, how does Dior Homme do in those situations?

    Revolting? Aoud Cuir d'Arabie is revolting. Aventus is innocuous.

    Actually, that would be my instinct for first dates unless I knew she was OK with fragrances. Same reasoning as for a job interview (doesn't that sound like a romantic approach to dating). I don't wear scent when I go out to a nice restaurant either. I want to give the aromas of the food and wine my full attention.

    well, cologne on a date is very cliche. a girl can just smell the desperation off you. no matter what unique scent you have, the most unique scent to wear on a date is nothing, because most guys do.

    that said, sometimes i do wear fragrances on date. but i go for something very light and clean (like maybe 1 spray of silver mountain water) that she could smell when really close. but i never want her to smell me from feet away.

    because i dont want cologne to be a deal breaker. what one girl loves another girl may hate. so i say just remove cologne as a factor and let her impression of you be of you as a person.

    just my perspective. not trying to be dogmatic here.

    I do this too. Actually I don't but since no frag lasts most than 2 hours on me and basically nothing projects on me it ends up being the same thing. Woo!

    So its only 1 hr before my 2nd date at the movies (star trek)

    Now ive got to decide what frag to wear.

    Unlike the first date (afternoon tea) with smart casual dress, this time i'm going with more casual jeans and a black denim shirt.

    Were both into rock music, and im not sure if I need to remind her I still rock!! (we new each other 20 yrs ago)

    So I was thinking of wearing 'Malaise of the 1970's' by etat libre de orange.

    or what about 'noir de noir' tom ford ?

    HELP !

    Gotta agree with ya!

    I find myself not even worrying about what cologne I wear when I'm out with my gf.

    If I do wear any, it's no more than 1 spray of a light, airy, fragrance.

    Just smell clean, and dress nice. Make the scent compliment how you're dressed.

    Lolita Lempicka is a really cuddly, sexy scent.
    You've got it in your collection, I'd think of rocking that one. No more than two sprays on the neck though as it's strong.
