In other words, I am looking into changing my scent. For several years i've been sticking with my regular scent I found quite amazing when I was younger.

I have now matured, and I am starting to look like a man. And now, I would also like to smell like a man as opposed to smelling like a teenager.

Is there any scents out there that smell like leather, tobacco, wood or other manly things like welding flames and diesel?

I am looking for a scent to put on, when I haven't shaved - thankfully it is easy to find manly scents in aftershave and shaving creme, but when it comes to perfume and deodorants, it is a great deal harder.

Thank you in advance,

Jonathan

The one by Dolce and Gabbana. It smells like cedar and tobacco.

Thank you, Nick. I'll try and find that one and see if I like it. 

I have that myself. I recommend it. You won't be disappointed.

3rded. Excellent stuff. 

Why would i want a cologne that smells like my great-uncle's "workshop"?  It may be manly, but it sure wasn't a lady magnet.

I wouldn't have any idea why you might want to or not, but I have no urge to be a lovely-smelling ladies magnet.

I agree. While manly, no one will want to stand around a guy who reeks of diesel oil...

Pinaud Clubman is always a great choice, they don't exactly smell like tobacco or diesel, but they are manly. 

This^. Except, Pinaud makes a version of Clubman called "Special Reserve" - excellent aftershave/cologne, that is a leather/tobacco type.

You don't need to spend a lot of money for a good scent; the cologne industry is a racket. 

Thank you - I will try and find it at my local shops, so I can smell before buying. 

I skip cologne and instead have a personal hygiene arsenal that is loaded with manly scents. 

  • Grandpa's Pine Tar Soap
  • Pinaud Clubman Aftershave (I use this even when I don't shave)
  • Brylcreem
  • Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwod Shaving soap
  • Kiwi Shoe Polish

This way no matter what, I have a combination of manly scents on me or my clothes at all times. Over time they combine to become your signature scent.

This guy's the man. Where do you buy the pine tar soap in bulk?
