Hello, Art of Manliness community! I come before you today with a question - what does one use to smell manly? I ask because I am anosmic - I have no sense of smell that I'm aware of. As a result,…Continue
"If I were you, I would focus on not smelling at all - good or bad, rather than smelling "good" and not being able to enjoy it myself. I don't wear perfume for my husband; I wear it for myself.
If I couldn't smell, I'd put a…"
"Two scents to avoid (IMO): 1) Axe, and 2) any kind of musk.
Axe is all over the damned place, and in the 20-something set. Never heard a woman say she liked it.

"I've been using Lever 2000 Original Scent soap for about 20 years. I get frequent compliments on smelling good. I NEVER use scented deodorant. That's disgusting. They all smell terrible and who wants to smell like…"
"Simple, not costly but ladies I know like it and barbers stock it - Pinaud Clubman. There's a more upscale version called Clubman Reserve. Not a lot of stores carry it, but I've seen it at CVS and Walgreen's, and for sale from…"
