i was on the bus today whn i smelled smt really, really bad!!
nope, it wasn't the gross negligence of the guy's personal hygiene;
but i would say, the OVER enthusiasm of his, to smell good for his date!
honestly! ever since forever, i kinda notice that guys seem to have, a particular smell! either the smell of the cheap ass deodorant from the drugstore; or the overpowering Boss variants.
i mean, i can be walking on the streets and i could smell anything from the strong coco chanel parfum to the sweet dolly by anna sui eau de toilette on the ladies but the same ol' gag inducing ones on the guys..
is there a secret handbook that i dont know about, ENCOURAGING le male to smell that way?!!!
so of course!!! i would understand your shock whn i tell you that there ARE flowery or citrusy perfumes in the market RIGHT NOW targetted at guys!!!
haha! wouldnt that be amazing?! guys smelling good and him looking all so chic right beside you?!!!
so anyhow, if you girls would love love to get some of these scents for yr sweetheart; here are some of my recommendations:
for the prepster
VIRGIN ISLAND WATER (Creed)
it's laced with essence of coconut, hibiscus, ylang- ylang, sugarcane and many more..
but i guess it's enuf to conjure images of you sailing through the high seas off the caribbean huh?! haha!
( this is actually my personal favorite!!)
for the guy that every bloke wna be and the guy every girl wna snag...
FLEUR DU MALE (Jean Paul Gaultier)
first up; at 1st, i thought it was weird to have a half naked guy posing for a GUY'S scent. haha; then i remembered my moschino cheap & chic- fun ad and i was ok=p
orange blossom is found in this bottle and the overall smell is kinda woody citrusy.. somehow; the ad, the design and the active ingredients JUST make me think of the guy's guy! haha!
ps/ wouldnt it be perfect if we'all have such a man in our lives?! haha!!!!! he;s kinda like the quaterback in high school that the cheer captain dates; minus the stereotyped dumbness found in jocks huh?!
for the guy next door( if there's such a thing) with an extra bit of ruggedness
COMME DES GARCONS 2 MAN (Comme Des Garcons)
with incense, white smoke, saffron flowers, nutmeg, kumquat, mint and etc in this bottle. i guess, it sounds pretty much overpowering but i guess, it's ok for almost every guy out there.
ohhh wht wouldnt i give; to not smell the disgusting hugo boss stuff out ANYWHERE! ANYMORE!!!
and the last~
ESCENTRIC 01 (Escentric Molecules)
with stuff like pink pepper, green lime and balsamic notes like benzoin, mastic and incense; honestly, i think that only the hippie is suited to the scent.. maybe it is indeed a form of stereotyping but.
do you think that a prepster would go for THAT?! haha!
you see my point=p
so that's all i have... and as for the girlfriends and wives out there; if you do get some of these unconventional scents, pls do come back and tell me if your guy's better off stinky or yummy smelling k?!!! haha! love!
