Most of them smell like cheap department store colognes. The natural smell of a man is infinitely more attractive than any artificial smell in a can....and AXE smells like ass to me.
That's my opinion anyway

No, they don't work, and most times they smell horid. Get an actual cologne, one that's not cheap and smells fairly good. Those will attract women more. General hygiene as well will give you a light, clean scent, which is sometimes even better.

Honestly, though, I do not think that a man's smell, no matter what, would attract women like they do in the commercials. Those are supposed to be funny and amusing, not realistic - women do not flock to a man simply because he's wearing a nice cologne. I mean, perhaps some do...but not most.

Reminds me of the time I had no choice but to use my dad's Axe body wash when i ran out. My friend asked me if I had attracted any women (I'm female myself mind you) and I said no, and I hope never to. He then said "Damn! They lied!" It was pretty funny. XD

I watched a documentary..I wish I could remember what it was called, but there was this guy who tried out some of the common things that are said to "attract women" and one of them was a pheremone cologne that his friend swore did wonders for him. It was found of course to not do any good and the smell itself did not attract any women.

I think though that the reason some people feel that these attractant colognes work is because when wearing them they feel more confident in themselves. Confidence will go a long way with a woman. For example when I first met my husband he was not very sure of himself and it showed. I ended up being mildly interested but not enough to keep me hooked. Then I met up with him about a year later and he was full of confidence, (almost cocky but still a complete gentleman) I was hooked, and the rest is history.

I will say though that some scents do attract me more then others. None of the ones that attract me have actually been colognes meant for that purpose though. But sometimes a guy will wear a cologne that does smell really nice and it is attracting enough that I'll ask what he's wearing so that I can get some for my husband.

I experiement with many essential oils. I wear different oils fo rtheir aromatherapeutic effects.

I have recently got an oil blend of rose and ylang ylang. I have been getting so much positive feedback from both men and women. Of all the fragrances I have tried this is the first one that my man actually notices on me and loves.

I guess everyone has there own thing that works for them but it might take a while to find your own fragrance.

I saw a documentary on pheromones a long time ago. I do not recall most of the facts, but they were basically saying that the pheromones don't really show up on human radar like they do with other animals.

Those so called woman attracting cologne's mostly smell like either ass or feet. And pheromones don't really work the same with humans. The sexiest smell that a man can have is his own. A clean confident man is much more attractive than one that's been drowned in Axe spray and artificial pheromones.

All I can say is either someone "smells right" or they don't. Soap, cologne, nothing else matters. That's what I meant by pheromones. Nothing scientific. The nose just knows.

according to studies Men are attracted to the scent of pumpkin pie, and women are turned on by the smells of candy-coated licorice, cucumbers and baby powder.....And turned off by cherry scents and charcoal barbqued meat....

In my experience the Pheromones do work, but I wear them with my perfume, as does my boyfriend wear them with his cologne... Our experiances have been quite funny sometimes...But they do work, be it to make you happier or the people around you happier.......'effin Science did a segment on them.

I love the smell of Irish Springs, or something fresh and light like that. A light soap like that, or maybe some Old Spice! lol... is fine. Those other ones just lie.

I know that's right. My boyfriend hardly uses any snazzy body wash or colonge. Usually that's just him I like smelling.. lol

The scent that will attract a woman more is your own scent, your pheromones. Colognes usually smell horrible, and repel women more than attract them. It seems some men cover up there own scent, or the scent of cigarettes, etc. with cologne or fragrances instead of actually showering, or doing their laundry. Don't buy it!

Girlfriend goes nuts over my own scent, kinda freaky sometimes how I'd come into a room and she'd jump me.
And AXE spray is horrible to everyone, as a teen I realized the only use of it was as a flame-thrower.

For clarification, we have a long distance relationship, so I'm obligated to jump you whenever possible anyway. And it's not an excuse not to bathe. But, I will admit, you do smell good.

I wouldn't rely on fragrances to attract women.

I agree with Tiffy; A clean confident man is much more attractive than one that's been drowned in Axe spray and artificial pheromones.

I think it depends on the girl you're trying to attract. There are so many different preferences out there that I'm sure there is a whole slew of girls who totally go for the "drenched in some funky artificial shit" smell.

They don't attract me, that's for sure. I prefer a man's natural smell.

Due to my wife's allergies, any cologne (especially those strongly scented "body sprays") risks her having trouble breathing. This definitely doesn't lead to her feeling more attracted to me. Of course, ours is a bit of a special case, but don't underestimate how many women might have problems with strong scents.

I love the smell of certain colognes, but none of them make a guy attractive.

I always wondered if they did, but assumed they didn't or else more men would be wearing them. I also figured if they'd actually work they'd cost a lot more than they do. I always felt offended at how one sided it was, I'm a female.. why is no one making perfumes to attract men for me?

On the other hand.. man some colognes make me want to jump someone, I always want to ask them what it is they are wearing, but suddenly clam up and away they walk.

nah not really. i think if you get a decent smelling cologne (not cheap, like hugo boss or chanel), i think you would be set. if anything, women attracting colognes are just nasty perfumes that are marketed well

Also keep in mind that there is a growing population of women who are sensitive to fragrances and that they can trigger migraines for many people.

The natural clean smell of a man is best I think and men naturally will produce pheromones that will attract women

I don't notice smell on a guy a lot...but then, I've never done much cuddling with one. I did meet one guy who wore a cologne that smelled amazing on him, though. Never did figure out what it was.

I used to work with a guy who thought those Axe commercials were for real, so one day he went to the drugstore next door, found a sample can of Axe, and sprayed it all over himself like they do in the commercials. And then he was wondering why everyone was walking AWAY from him!
