I like really subtle smells, and something that smells more natural instead of having that stringent, artificial quality.
For example, you know how some old ladies (and some old men too) cake on those perfumes where you can smell them coming from a mile away? I can't stand those. LOL
My favorite is when I can smell my girl basically only when I'm inside her personal bubble; if I'm close enough to touch her, then I think that's when I'd want to be able to smell whatever scent she's wearing. That's the perfect amount in my opinion.
I really love watermelon smells for some reason, not gonna lie. Really though, any fruity kind of smell or any lightly-applied perfume is good so long as it's not overpowering; I want to be able to smell her natural scent too, in her hair and on her skin. I love that.
(1.) The smell of sex. Female Pheremones are pretty awesome. (2.) Her shampoo. I think perfume is overrated because most girls with long enough hair and a good smelling shampoo (herbal essences?) can smell great all day. Girls seem to like it when you tell them they smell like Strawberries, too. (3.) Sweat. If she showers before a workout, none of that nasty bacteria will cause that typical BO smell. What's left over is actually quite intriguing, whether it's pheromones or not.
Personally, I've been described as smelling like a "Fresh clean shower" even after a decent amount of sweating. I'm telling you, Dove for Men body soap and deodarent go a LONG way. I only occasionally use aftershave (Pinaub Clubman's "regular" scent).
I know this may seem weird or its just the daily regiment that a woman goes through, but I love and am attracted to that natural smell. Like a pheromone. I know we give it off and its virtually undetectable to our noses But I swear I can smell it lol..
I love anything by Armani or bvlgari on a guy. Fresh citrus scents are always safe but on guys I love either woodsy, oriental, or musky scents. I've never had the experience of feeling like a guy out way too much cologne on so it was a turnoff. I might notice it and be like "wow someone has a heavy hand!" But it's never been a turnoff for me.
Polo Black/Red/Blue, Axe (not the chocolate scented one tho), Acua Di Gio, Calvin Klein, and Sex Panther. Mainly Polo cause I know a lot of guys who wear that, and Sex Panther because my crush last semester wore it. He smelled so good lol and he sat next to me. My mind was tellin me to sniff him like a dog haha, but my actions kept me under restraint lol.
Well first of all: clean. Like right after the shower. haha Then I also like the smell of the aftershave a guy uses and cologne too but depends what type. Up until now I like how the Playboy London smells, Forester by Jean Marc I think and I can't remember others.
