I'm curious about why folks wear a particular aftershave or cologne - to please their own sense of smell? To please someone else (such as a spouse or significant other)? To please both themselves and the other? Or just for the heck of it, because it's expected and you found a cheap one?

I always wear a scent for me, as I have no spouse to please.

It has to be pleasing to my nose and feel good on my face. If I like it, everyone else will just have to get use to it.

My wife could not stand the smell of Alt Innsbruck when I first started using it, now it is one of her favorites.

This best sums it up for me, I wear an aftershave for the face feel it gives me the scent is a plus, I'm not really big on colognes, but I'm trying to branch out and try more.

I find scent pleases others, while aftershave pleases my face. Biggrin

While I always pick one that *I* want to wear that day, and I love every scent I have, I don't keep anything my GF does not like. So while yes, I wear what I like (my poll choice), since I do not have anything SWMBO does not like, therefore I guess one we both like is also an option.
