I'm talking about arrogance. Something fresh. You know, not the bad kind of smell.

I like to know what kind of arrogance or fresh scent do you like in a man ? Do like the type of cologne he puts on ?

Do you like the after shave lotion/cologne he wears ?

Do you like the smell of his sweat ? Under armpits ?

You name it any way you want. What kind of smell turns you on... or gets your skin tingling a bit ?

You mean fragrance?

Arrogrance is being stuck up, in short .

I know a lot of girls who love Curve for Men, if they could they'd wear it thenselves. I don't really care, as long as it's not Essence of Crap, or as long as they don't wear too much of it. As for sweat-Ew.

And I'm sure you know this, but if you want a solid answer, you're not gonna get it.

Once again, with this sort of question you are going to get a multitude of different answers- there is no single key sexy smell.

I like different smells in different situations, but so long as it's not offensive to me (and the smells that I don't like are not the same as what others don't like), it's not something that I spend a great deal of time thinking about. Sometimes a particular smell can provoke a certain response, either good or bad, often powerfully, but I never bothered learning the deodorant name attached to any particular smell. More often than not the smells I like are natural ones anyway.

Yeah, I meant fragrance. Jeessshhhh... I was writing soo fast I didn't care about the mistakes I made.

Thanks for the correction though. I know I write bad.

And again... does this sound like a generalization question to you ?

Ok ok.. you got me. Why is it that I always have to think so hard about asking a question?

Thanks a bunch.

I think nothing smells better (or sexier) than a fresh, clean male body.. all natural odours (well, perhaps a tiny wee bit deodoranty, chemical free of course)
I'm not really into perfumes and colognes, I don't understand why people want to cover up what they naturally smell like! (Plus, it makes me sneezy!)..

Free and natural, I say.. and the same goes for ladies

Lol, I thought that Arrogance must have been the name of some nice-smelling cologne!

Aria - *lol*!

I like the smell of my partners body. He smells gorgeous - because he smells like "himself" (if that makes sense). I like to smell him no matter if he's right out of the shower or whether it's the end of the day. It's him.

And in regard to colognes, I really like Jean Paul Gaultiers "Le Male". It literally makes me drool. And not only because my partner wears that on rare occasions. - It's so delicious I wear it myself.

lol. I was scratching my head about this Arrogance thing.

But like Alaska, I like my guys's smell because it smells like him. I just identify with that smell.

But when it comes to cologne, you can't beat Polo Sport. And I'm seeing him later so I'll get to drool over him. Yippie.

I enjoy experimenting with the different smells of different men. The beauty of men is that they're all so different, and all so beautiful in their simplicity. I once identified a lovely guy's locker, just by smelling lockers in the area. I was right. In fact, I did it twice for two different guys.

Said all of that to say: I love to smell men.

I'll have to say that I'm also one of those people who tends to identify others based on their smell. The first thing I do when I hug anybody is take a deep breath (I don't do it consiously, it just tends to happen). So I guess I just automatically figure out how someone smells and file that away as a way to identify them.

Pink: "You mean fragrance?

I've got it! I think perhaps Antonio's mind was thinking of "aroma" when he typed "arrogance". Maybe? I don't know.... Just a dress. "Dress?" Oh, I mean "guess!"

I don't like any particular perfume or cologne. I dislike most of them actually. The only scent that I've ever liked is Bath&Body Works Country Apple body splash. It's very light and fruity.

As for my boyfriend, I like the smell of him. No cologne, just him. He smells great with just a shower and clean clothes. Well of course everyone does when they're clean and showered but since he's my boyfriend, he smells extra yummie.

I like any smell that's associated with my guy, other than "I've been rolling in the dirt and playing football for last two hours". The smell of his laundry detergent on his clothes, his brand of deodorant, his shampoo and conditioner, soap, even the interior of his car and house become good smells because I associate these smells with being very happy.

I've tried smelling different colognes in the store before, but all I can smell is something that belongs in the chem lab.

I've been staying with one of my sweeties for a week. This morning, since I'd already packed my bath stuff, I used his soap. I've been noticing all day that I have a smell that I normally think of as "his smell" on me. It's comforting and odd at the same time, and makes me miss him.
