If cologne is used sparingly it's OK, Subtley is key. I think some men and women don't realize it when they have put on too much. The rule of thumb I've heard is that if you can smell it on yourself you've used too much.

I tend to like the fragrance that is in a similar vein to soap and shampoo scents...anything with clean, fresh, maybe even lightly citrus-y undertones is my preference.

Well, I don't think cologne is creepy as perfume isn't creepy either. Why is everything creepy on CD?

Cause we're the CD family!

Cologne is not creepy, stinky maybe, but not creepy.

I thought that I was the only one who felt this way. Yes, cologne creeps me out.

Creepy? No. Migraine-inducing? Yes.

Some colognes are so incredibly strong and some of them smell so TACKY I don't know how the wearer can live with himself! LOL. Same goes for women's perfumes, by the way!

As long as it isn't anything in the Axe line, it doesn't bother me. However, some brands in particular remind me of high school (Aramis, Paco Rabanne) or college (Drakkar Noir, Polo), or certain ex-boyfriends (Preferred Stock, Pierre Cardin).

And frankly, I think Armani Code should be discontinued and the rest sent to my SO, as it will forever be wrong on any other person. (But oh, so yummy on him. )

I love perfumes and colognes. I own too many and always buy more. I have tried to give it as a gift to my husband but he never wears it.

He jerks away from the spray as if it's holy water being sprayed on a vampire.
