I like guys that smell good, but I, and probably a lot of other girls, don't know exactly the name of what smells good and what doesn't. I mean comeon, do you know how the smell of Secret Lavender differs from the smell of Women's Degree Powder? But I like bodywash.. hmm yummy.
Bodywashes, to me, are A LOT better than those nasty spray-on deodorizers. At my job, I was constantly around men who smelled like they had taken baths in the stuff. If you wash with it, you get that faint little scent when you hug someone or get really close, and I love that. It's comforting and familiarizing. Just imo.
My guy has an Old Spice deodorant that I LOVE. I can't remember the name of it, maybe Denali but it's one of the few that I really like. No lie, I would snuggle up to him and try to discreetly sniff him after he had just put it on. Not a huge fan of Axe though.
Body wash is probably the best, but a little cologne doesn't hurt. I've never found any girl that really likes Axe, and Old Spice is more accepted but still not that great. Honestly, most guys just wear too much, but if you like how they smell then wear what you want, but don't go overboard and you should be fine.
I tried a few, I never liked the smell of AXE.. that was too strong. I tried Old Spice deodorant, and body spray called 'After Hours'.. not bad if I used it lightly, but my girl didn't care for it. so I went shopping for a more mellow one and found Old spice called 'BELIZE' from something Old Spice calls FRESH COLLECTION... she loved that one, said it gave a clean 'soap like' smell... However she likes it when I use cologne much better. If you have the money, I use Dolce and Gabbana 'Light Blue' also another one called 'Acqua De Gio" by Georgio Armani... I get a lot of compliments from women when I use those... and again very little... a spray underneath each ear, and one on the chest is enough... don't bath in it..
