    Default How often do you smell fragrances on other men?

    I hear people say things like "Oh I smell AdG on everyone... "

    but I almost never smell any cologne on men, especially during the day. Though, I did wear Mont Blanc legend the other day and few of my friends said it smelled like an abercrombie store, so I guess Fierce does have a strong presence for people my age (early 20's).

    I'm at a mid-sized midwestern college town. I would say in the past 24 months, I smelled Le Male maybe once at a club, and I don't think I've ever smelled AdG or 1 million on people. I did smell someone wearing D&G The One once because he sprayed wayy to much but other than that, I rarely smell fragrances on men.

    so the question is, how old are you and what region of the world are you from and how often do you actually smell fragrances on other men.

    I think that in smaller college towns like yours and mine fragrances are more rare. The few times I've noticed anyones cologne it was armani code and le male

    I am daily choked, by guys wearing obscene amounts of One Million... When something gets popular in Denmark, the guys almost only wears that, and often too much of it! Even though any amount of One Milion, is too much in my opinion...

    Fortunately not often because they're usually wearing too much or something really bad to begin with. I am a man but I generally dislike fragrances on men. Usually makes me feel sorry for the guy or just wish he'd move on down the road.

    In Tokyo, rarely. Maybe once every couple of weeks I catch a whiff of some aquatic/calone bomb. Occasionally in fashionable boutiques I'll come across a guy wearing something else. Most recently something heavy on the patchouli that I couldn't identify.

    I'd say like a little less than 25% of men wear cologne on casual occasions. The only time men wear cologne is at a date or clubbing. I'm usually not good at identifying what they wear oddly enough, but I'm sure I smelled Abercrombie Fitch Fierce last month. But usually what I smell on men smells like cheap Axe, whether it is or not, (and it's not pleasant).

    I live in Northern California and smell cologne on men all the time!
    Granted, I greet people by shaking hands, bringing it in for a hug, then a quick sniff at the neck...

    So far, only perceived the fragrances worn by other men, if they were wearing easily recognizable bestsellers like, obviously, ADG, Le Male or some of the more popular Hugo Boss fragrances.

    Not very often, but here and there. I think those that do wear it tend to wear them lightly applied. As if having someone smell your fragrance will get you exiled to the Arctic or something.

    It is more the time and place. Go to a club, you will smell fragrance. Go to a trendy mall or restaurant, you will smell fragrance. But generally during the day...it is random at best. It is always a nice surprise, however. Even smelling Cool Water is great ! As long as it is not Fierce or Acqua di Gio pour Homme, I am happy.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    I'm currently in the upper Midwest and I see clients throughout my day. Out of all my male clients, the ones who predictably wear lots of cologne tend to have just started a new relationship and they're a little older, especially if they've been through a divorce. You can say they're the ones with a "midlife crisis" of sorts.

    Outside of these, I can count only around 5 males within my clientele who wear anything noticeable.

    Not enough... lol

    Now and again a man will pass and he will smell just washed and a tiny tendril of a decent fragrance will tease the nostrils. It is nearly always a well groomed person who obviously cares about their appearance too. A lovely thing in itself for no other reason than the invisible appreciation of a stranger for the effort.

    What region of the world your from is a very important criteria.
    Here in India most boys and men still wear Deodorants, talcum
    powder or very rarely some attar.

    In certain posh localities of my town I do smell the occasional
    lapidus. bogart, quorum, kouros etc, I once even caught a wiff
    of Sport code but It could have been anything as in the place im
    at and many others with the exception of a few, people prefer
    to wear the attar that is copied from the perfume.
    We have shops here, if you give them your perfume bottle, they'll
    create an attar simillar to it, thats what ive heard, ive seen many of
    these shops but am not interested as I dont want to expose my skin to
    some cheap, loud, cloying, synthetic 1$ oil, Id go for the perfumes anyday,
    Atleast their synthetic is smooth and bearable.

    Not often, if at all. Two guys, a conductor who bathes in Polo and another younger guy on train who wears Light Blue PH are the only ones I've noticed, truthfully, since being in Chicago. That's fine by me.

    We have a lot of Europeans at the hotel where I work, and they are not shy about wearing cologne. As for the guests, it is pretty common to smell aquatics. Only occasionally do I smell something interesting like TdH or Amouage.

    Very, VERY rarely. I'm in my very early 20s and live in one of the bigger towns (not that there are more than like 3 big cities in Sweden anyway lol) in Sweden which also happen to have one of the biggest Universities that I go to, so I do meet lots of people my age.
    I VERY rarely smell any fragrance whatsoever, so that's kind of fun for me I guess but pretty boring as well. When I lived in Stockholm it was quite the difference, still nothing groundbreaking as I'm guessing people my age have "no clue" what so ever though.

    I'm daily gassed by 1 million, especially in the summer...ESPECIALLY by kids who think it's a good idea to spray at least 16 bottles on them before they leave the house.....


    *sigh*

    I joke, but I can't stand people gassing other people with fragrance. Especially the 1 million kids and the women who put on literally 15 sprays of something cheap, sweet and generally horrible. (Which I would almost like to know what it is so I can tell every woman to stay away :P)

    Here in western New York, I only smell fragrance on men in clubs. Everywhere else it is aftershave with rare exceptions. On women it is a combo of fruity florals on young ladies, the usual old lady stuff on older women. Youth Dew is very common along with Arden and Liz.

    this is one interesting thread... i also seldomly do. i think for some reason the crowd opinioins are that scents are made for women..... i thought very much so before i joined this site.... go ahead check the current attendance in the mens and womens forum. it is usually 3:1. i believe at least 70% of the fragrance maniacs are men.
    funny post above - men in their midcrisis wear cologne more often... haha.... i tend to agree.

    Depends on the occasion;

    During the morning on public transportation there is always someone reeking of you name it. One Million is a fix.

    During get togethers too, there will be someone wearing something popular. The more formal the occasion, the heavier use of colognes you'll get.

    At school, some students have a signature scent or scents in rotation. That is where I found Banderas Black Seduction could be a good choice (not for the ones curious abut not so mainstream scents).

    Afer training guys won't wear cologne, unless the ones given by their girlfriends. Lacoste Challenge was the last one comming to mind, as well as Clavin Klein's CK.

    But in general, in Buenos Aires, you won't find yourself assaulted by powerbombs running amok. Overwearing can the be object of sarcastic commentaries - "there it goes the cologne guy", "someone doused him / herself in cologne", or even worst comments I'd rather not mention for the sake of good taste.
