I was thinking the other day that I haven't worn cologne in a longe time and started thinking other guys maybe don't either. To keep it golf related, do you wear it off the course and do you wear it on the course?

Actually not a bad topic, haha.


On the course, I usually NEVER wear cologne. The only times I ever did was when I was playing with either one of my previous girlfriends.

Off the course, pretty much everyday. Like the poll says, you never know when you're gonna need it, so you might as well be prepared.

I never where cologne anymore.  

The only stinky stuff on my body nowadays is Old Spice High Endurance Pacific Surge.  

I have to tell you, I probably get more compliments about "smelling good" than most guys.  That may sound a little off key but Pacific Surge is a real aphrodisiac.

It really works well down at the senior center.   (cool)

Wow.

I prefer to wear my girlfriends smell, but find it distracting on the course.

I find the moisturizer I use every morning has all the fragrance I need.  Has a nice forest scent that is masculine not flowery smelling.   Of course, only a female is going to get close enough to really apprecaite it.   Guys shouldn't be able to detect fragrances on other guys, not should they want to.

:rolleyes:

If you need cologne then take a shower, a little Old Spice DO is all you need.  Plus most colognes and perfumes give me a headache and make me sneeze.  Didn't mens colognes go out of style with the gold chain and members only jacket?

I wear cologne.  As the poll said, you never know what might come into play and there is no excuse to not smell good.  One thing I make a point of doing is going light on the cologne.  You want just a hint of scent, not something that is overpowering.
I think thats the reason why you dont see men wearing cologne as much anymore.  So many used to put on way too much cologne and it fell out of favor because of that.

I wear cologne pretty much every day. I don't really understand why any man wouldn't want to smell good? I just wear it for the girls, so I guess if I was married I probably wouldn't wear it either lol.

Does your Shower and deodorant regiment not cover your B.O.; such that you also need a whore's bath on top of it?

I quit using cologne when I started using the post shave lotion my wife got me. No need to clash scents.

Kind of interesting poll results.

I voted no and no, as I smell clean from bathing regularly and I know that some people are offended by the smell of cologne or perfume. I have probably 20some bottles of good, expensive colognes in my bathroom and I probably use 3 squirts a year lol. When I was younger and dumberer I wore it frequently. Since marriage and divorce I really don't give a f***
