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.
Musk - got to question the wisdom of showering, putting on deodorant, then making…"
"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…"

So: wash well with unscented soap, wash all the shampoo out, brush the teeth &c.,…"
A thread to discuss anything related to the building and/or concept of a southern US border wall. I'll start:Cruz proposes using funds from El Chapo and other drug money. I still want Mexico to pony up some of the money, but I do like this plan, at face value. See More
"This might work. I spent a night going through his 100 day action plan, and all his actions. Like I said, 16/18 items on his list have been completed. One is in the process, one found a better deal, and one has been recently supplanted by a…"
"I was thinking of this in reading someone's report on his first 100 days. It was a friendly report, but it amounted to 3 parts:
* Actions Trump took without regard to whether they actually worked
* Good things that happened that we'd…"
"I think most Presidents are surprised at how little power they have, and how difficult it is to get things done. I recall similar stories about Obama. They were framed very differently. Where Trump is an idiot who's surprised at how hard his…"
"Sounds like time for a shift. Here are some ideas:
* Read up on depression, or consult a professional. Does it describe you well? I know there are commonalities in grief and depression, but grief is situation-driven and fades (IDK…"
