Is it important for guys to wear fragrances (body spray / cologne) when going on a date?

Or does it not matter at all as long as you have good hygiene and have showered well beforehand and put on deodorant or something?

In a minute I'll also ask the same question except about girls and perfume. I would include it here, except there aren't enough poll options for that. I'll post the link to the question in an update.

  • Good hygiene is the most important thing. If you do wear a scent, you'd better have good taste, and don't put too much on. A cloud of terrible, cheap cologne smells way worse than no scent at all, and will likely be off-putting to your date.

  • For a more formal date, its nice. Not really necessary though, as long as he as good hygiene. When you date farmers, you learn not to be too picky. Usually I'm happy if they hit the shower before we go out. Trust me, when you've been on a date that included cleaning out a dairy barn, cologne is the last thing on your mind!

    • Oh my, lol.

    • Show All
    • Yep. I can't be something I'm not. When you work 50-60 hours on a job that more your life than a job, you need someone that understands. Always fun when you see the guys you work with on a night out and they do a double take.

    • Haha I guess so.

  • I don't think it's necessary for guys to wear body spray or cologne when on a date, as long as they have good hygiene, however it makes the guy 10x more attractive when he smells good

  • All I care about is him being clean. Nothing else.

    But I do like it if I happen to catch his natural sent. (That is of course is not his perfume, nor sweat)

    So I guess if he wore nothing or very little on our date, I'd appreciate it.

  • I don't think they should if they're going to a public place. Some people have severe allergies. I think it's better to just be clean and scent free if possible.

  • I picked A even though I'm really in the Other category. Guys don't just need to smell good on dates, they should smell good at all times. Its very attractive when you meet a random women and she notices you smell good at the grocery store or in front of Starbucks. It means you keep fresh and that's important for women. Smelling good also implies good hygiene which women area also very picky about.
