Even in regards to things like fragrance I find certain things can be super super sexy, for example I work in the cosmetics section of a department store and if a cute guy comes in looking for a cologne I will flirt with him and jokingly make him smell my 'top-5 fragrances that make me want to jump a man and tear his clothes off'... because seriously there are fragrances out there that can drive me crazy and make me look at a normally 'average'  guy twice

I'm pretty sure they're all expensive, but mostly worth it.

As for the research, I think it totally makes sense though I would LOVE to get the actual data from some of the studies. Obviously it isn't the One Major Factor in finding a dude or a lady, but a part of a complex thing. I relate to it though, in that after I get a boy I find I am usually more attracted to him before he showers, or at night after a long day. Those same boys love to snuggle with their noses at the bottom back of my head/top of my neck. I have real thick hair and tend sweat when I'm trekkin' to class in negative degrees with a billion layers on, so I'm guessing it's probably kinda smelly too. However, I'm entirely sure I would not feel the same about a dude with BO who I was meeting for the first time.

So Normz, what's the very sexiest fragrance for men under five dollars, though?

Those other ones seem European, and European is expensive.

Guys I have never experimented with fragrances much because almost all of them (except, like, Old Spice) make me sneeze like a motherfuck. I am really curious, though, because there have been one or two things that I have smelled on dudes that were musky and ...rougher*, I guess? less smooth scents, anyway, that were nice because they didn't make me sneeze that I liked a lot. What are some, I guess?



*The quality makes me think of rough textures, and my brain tries to infer a reason for this, so my hypothesis is that the scent particle things are larger than in others and thus do not affect my sinuses so much? The way grass pollen is tiny and lots of people are allergic to it but almost no one is allergic to conifers because to get pine pollen in your nose you would have to snort it.

That is where you have straight up smelled a man.

I'm not really into deoderant and stuff but I have some nice aftershave that I wear occasionally.

I feel like there is no way to tread this water without standin' on a jellyfish but it does need to be said that whilst those scents that Normz name-checked might very well land you a Normz (very attractive and lovely lady that she is), it may well also push you away from other lassies.

What I am sayin' here is that you could pile on the aftershave lookin' for a lovely voluptuous lady but alienate the cute asthmatic chick who serves you coffee every mornin'.

Boys who smell like clean laundry always smell better than guys wearing cologne to me. Even chlorine smells better, but this is because the smell of chlorine makes me feel happy.

I'm super sensitive to smells, to the point of me completely avoiding laundry detergent and cleaning aisles in stores as artificial and toxic chemicals = me getting a headache. Needless to say, I'm a huge fan of my organic housekeeping book and non-toxic products.

As a result, I can't stand guys that smell artificial. Cologne or shampoo that is made of cheap ingredients sticks out to me from a long distance away. If as guy is cleaning his clothes with too much detergent, my body will say "Toxic alert! don't touch!"

I love the smell of dirt and sweat and natural smells, though. I guess I like dirty boys.

to get back on topic for a moment:
i knew this was fairly legit but was still a little skeptical about to what extent it really goes but as of today is has been proven in my mind.

so i've been friends with this girl for several years now and never really thought of her in any other way than a good friend. i mean, i thought she was pretty and cool etc. but was never really attracted to her. well, for the last couple weeks i've been unnaturally attracted to her and i could not figure out why.
so today i asked her if she had recently switched shampoo/soap/deodorant/etc. and it turns out she changed all of the above and started taking Prozac. it was right around the time i noticed myself being attracted to her, too.

coincidence? could be, but i don't think so.

anyway, that's my two cents on the matter.

I like how my boyfriend smells at the end of the day or in the morning than after he takes a shower. I'm not sure what soap or shampoo he uses, but he's scentless after showers. I tell him I love how he smells a lot. I use body wash that smells either like honeysuckle or vanilla sugar, but I only get compliments when I haven't washed my hair in a couple days since I wash it every three days.

Old spice is definitely the worst smell someone can have except maybe BO. Axe can be bad too if you wear too much.

On the debate about how much scent plays a role in choosing a mate, my boyfriend and I met online. When we met, we had awesome chemistry and now living with him, I'm even more attracted to him. Maybe scent plays a small role? I mean, it's kinda like how scientists once said that women like rough, burly men? Obviously that's not totally true, but to a certain degree it is.
