    Default Scents to wear while running?

    So, I have been seriously running/jogging for about 2-3 years now. I realize wearing fragrances during runs isn't probably what most people do, and it isn't what I have done either...But, I'm thinking of adding some scents on my wrists for some of my runs, so I have something to smell every once in a while. I feel like I would want something energizing (maybe something aquatic/citrusy/zesty), something I could smell to "pep me up" when I need a boost...The days here right now are really nice - sunny/breezy.

    I don't know if "recommend" it, per se, but I often put on a spray of Virgin Island Water when working out, especially if I'm doing HIIT or some kind of hard cardio...

    If not going completely unscented (but wearing an efficient deodorant), would most likely go for something like Chrome or Mugler Cologne

    A smell that you like and makes you feel full of energy. That's the best answer I can think of.

    Mugler cologne
    Creed OV
    Castile
    Neroli sauvage

    Basically anything with a soapy fresh vibe that doesn't smell too perfumy.

    When I run longer distances and my circulation really gets going, my ability to smell decreases significantly. This is also limited immediately after the sport unit and usually takes about half an hour before it returns to normal.

    So for me personally it would be a waste.
    I shower right after anyway, so it doesn't make much sense to apply anything beforehand.

    However, I've often sprayed something on the back of my hand, just to see how it develops.

    I think the traditional eau de cologne do very well in the circumstance. Fresh, zingy, citrusy, and doesn't last long. For instance, Cologne sologne by Parfum de Nicolai, which is conveniently sold in bottles up to 1 liter. With enough money to toss, the Chanel Eau de Cologne works as well, but that will cost so much more.

    I don't recommend wearing a fragrance when running. If must, then Mugler cologne might work.
