    Anyone here wear cologne often, say on a daily basis? It doesn't have to be cologne, I guess, just something that makes you smell "better". Not sure if Axe counts, but I guess it could.

    I have a Tommy Hilfiger "Freedom" cologne set from years ago, and I never wear it. However, I have met people who say they wear something every day, and yet I can't smell it. But I've seen girls ask these people, "Are you wearing cologne?" because they're not dressed up or anything, and yet they smell good.

    Would you recommend wearing something everyday, or does it just seem cheesy, like you're trying too hard?

    well it depends on what kind of cologne it is. If its really subtle I think it can be used daily.

    Funnily enough that's one of the ones my wife really dislikes....sorry. But then as she's my wife she won't be one of the ones you're trying to impress ;)

    As for the original question. I only wear some sometimes and then not a lot.

    I'm guilty of wearing it daily - at work anyway. Used to be Cool Water, now it's Truth (Clavin Klein).

    I used to but not anymore, why cover up all those pheromones :D

    Actually one of my biggest turnoffs is women or men who seem to shower with cologne. There have been a couple of times when I've had to leave a room because of it.

    I am a cologne whore, but wear it in moderation.

    My most used one is Presence by Mont Blanc.

    Then its Jill Sander for Men

    Then its Givenchy pour Homme

    Then its 212 by Herrera,

    Then its something by Gucci,

    and so on, and so on.

    If I want to recall a certain part of my life, or how I felt, I just put on the cologne I wore at the time. Instant time travel. ;)

    Just a little bit - Issey Miyake if you must know. But not enough to gas anyone near me :D

    Ralph Lauren Romance or RL Romance Silver (for men). They both work nicely. An ex from many moons ago once bought me a bottle of Tommy Hilfiger Freedom, but wearing it made me feel so...redneck-ghetto (if that makes any sense). The Romance(s) usually draw a compliment or two, but not as much as when I'm brave enough to wear my kilt out in public ;)

    I wear "Blend No. 27" by Marlboro.

    You either love it or hate it.

    I uh, don't wear cologne :D but I bought a manly mountain "body splash" from Bath and Body Works for my boyfriend. It smells really good, and it's not too strong at all. He also uses a shaving cream from Nivea that smells nice.

    Other girls have commented to him how good he smells. I don't know if I should be jealous. ;)

    Not on a daily basis, I had used CK One last year and left it without reason, I mean, I don't need it at all, but I got a new one as present ;) and now use it when... you know :cool:, my girl wears on a daily basis, not a lot just what she needs and what I need... :)

    Perhaps a better question: Anyone take cologne showers often?

    Some Aqua Velva, right after I style and blow-dry my chest hair...


    <ahem>...I draw the line at body wash/deodorant. Prefer a subtle smell that can only be appreciated in close quarters.

    Just me.

    Cool, so there are some men do that often.

    Now, I realize that Hilfiger Freedom is supposed to be utter crap, but how do you tell if a cologne is good?

    Also, if you're wearing it every day, do you wear one that's sporty and fruity, or one that's more formal??
