What is the worst smelling men's aftershave?
My top choice would be Old Spice. My dad's boss used to drown himself in it to try to mask his own BO. It didn't work. I can't smell that stuff without gagging.

3. There are any that smell good?
:puke:

I've never understood the attraction to fake scents. Give me the smell of someone who's just clean, or maybe with just a bit of sweat. :blush:

5. Eau D'Dieu D'ad
The witty aroma of sweat, horse pasture, cheap booze and cigar smoke one can only get from hanging out at the race track with one's cronies.

12. If I recall corectly, that's what my first middle school
dance smelled like. Every sweaty boy in the sixth grade soaked himself liberally in "High Karate". Awful.

19. That crap that comes in steel cans is pretty vile
One is Axe. The other is TAG. Both are nasty-ass odors.

Now here's the sick part. My wife, my Chanel No. 5-loving wife, my wife who occasionally loads my scrawny white ass into the car, drives me to Selma and forces me to shop for cigars while she's buying Chanel No. 5 because it's really cheap at JR's Cigars...fucking LOVES Axe. I don't get it, man. Axe smells like what they rejected while they were creating Hai Karate.

So far, she has managed to purchase five cans of this shit for my use: one can of TAG, four of Axe. They're all nearly completely full; sometimes I'll spritz on some before we have marital relations because the odor of this product class does turn her on, but when I leave the house I've always got Canoe on.

so I like it for that reason.

24. 10,000 Miles, by Mary Chapin Carpenter.
Edited on Mon Oct-09-06 05:25 PM by crim son
Fare thee well
My own true love
Farewell for a while
I'm going away
But I'll be back
Though I go 10,000 miles

10,000 miles
My own true love
10,000 miles or more
The rocks may melt
And the seas may burn
If I should not return

Oh don't you see
That lonesome dove
Sitting on an ivy tree
She's weeping for
Her own true love
As I shall weep for mine

Oh come ye back
My own true love
And stay a while with me
If I had a friend
All on this earth
You've been a friend to me

25. Maybe this
Though it's a cologne, not an after-shave.





And it's real. :bounce:

32. I don't really like any of them
Or women's perfume for that matter. I like the smell of clean skin, with a hint of outdoors and fresh air and even a little sweat as long as it's not overpowering.

37. I'd no sooner use aftershave or cologne than I'd wear a damn dress.
So I guess my answer is "all of them."

47. I don't think I've ever smelled any that I've liked either...
My husband doesn't wear it. I think he smells best either right after a shower, or after he's been out cutting wood. Sometimes if a guy puts deoderant on too heavy it gets to me.
