Lol at "creepy". I wouldn't go that far.

There are very very few colognes I like, and even then, it has to be very mildly used for me to like it to the point where you don't even realize the guy is wearing cologne, but rather the smell sort of becomes his own smell (if that even makes sense?). I prefer clean smells and mild aftershave though, especially fresh out the shower...yummm

I prefer the smell of 2-stroke engine oil myself! The smell of it really is desirable and pleasant. Chainsaws, leaf blowers, weed eaters, marine engines, dirt bikes (motocross/super-cross) and many other mechanical devices use it. One whiff and am thinking fun! LOL And NO, I'm NOT crazy!

Creepy? No. But some men just don't have a clue about "sparingly".
Back in the day, barber shops used Bay Rum as an after-shave. Nothing like today's "men's colognes". It was a clean, fresh smell and I loved to stand next to a wearer on the subway. Even if your guy says he doesn't like scent, I bet he'll like this. I highly recommend it.

A lady friend bought me a bottle of "Million" last fall, I've never really worn cologne. I started giving myself one short spritz every day. A few weeks later we're at a local market and the 20 something sweetie serving us said, "I don't mean to be creepy but what it that cologne you are wearing, I love it". I have had one short spritz every day since!

I think there's nothing wrong with a friendly compliment like that. It's too bad we've reached a point in society where a compliment has to be prefaced by an apology/disclaimer.

Can you imagine the horror of a man saying to a woman that's a stranger, "You are quite lovely?". Call the cops!

I'm a guy that likes a bit of cologne, 2 sprays on chest normally.

I don't see what's so wrong with it. I just have the two:
Burberry the Beat: everyday, citrus and pepper, quite light...need to be practically on me to smell it.

Burberry Touch: Going out/meeting women. Warm, inviting. Somewhat better projection. Cedar and spice.
