    And where do you spray it? I go for two sprays on the back of my neck.

    Everyone here sprays in on their neck. On the front though, never heard about back. I use two sprays, which I recon is the most common. Enough, but not too much (depending on the cologne).
     
  4. Deodorant is my cologne. Hell to the yeah.:bassist:
     
  5. One puff on each side of my neck.

    After shave is enough...otherwise, use half of what you think you need.

    If I can smell your cologne from 5 Feet away, you're wearing way too much

    If I can smell it at all, I'm walking away from you until I can't smell it any more. So you can gauge whether it's "too much" by whether I am avoiding you.

    If that is your view, then my bet is that people are not sorry :p
     
  10. well, a double pit with a chesty is a minimum for most people.

    haha that's way to much! Who is Axe trying to fool?

    i'd say if you can be smelled from more than a foot away, you are wearing too much--it should only be enough for you and your significant other to smell in my opinion
     
  11. Same here. I haven't owned a bottle of cologne since I started deer hunting. That was when I was about 10. I couldn't go back now. Due to the nature of my work, I often shower 2, sometimes 3 times per day and my Axe shower gel and deoderant keep me smelling good enough :hyper:

    I once owned a car that was built in Cologne. You can probably guess what make it was.

    I douse myself in cheap stuff before I head to the bar. When I get there I smell cologney. After about an hour, I figure I smell better than than the smoky bar. By the time I get home, I smell like an ashtray.

    I figure if I'm going to be getting all sweaty under hot lights in a smoke filled environment, too much cologne might be just about right after the first set or so.

    Real men do not wear cologne.

    Are you a pimp or a "playa"? Do your friends call you "brah"? If yes, then cologne is for you, and the more the better.

    If you insist, two squirts is entirely too much. Half a squirt is best. As was said above, no one should be able to smell you from more than 1 foot away.

    You might think it makes you smell like heaven on earth, but most people wear too much and it turns off more people than it inspires.

    One of my kids puts on that ridiculous Axe, and the house smells like Axe all day. I'm gonna start throwing it in the trash if he doesn't cut it out.

    My soap, deodorant, and after shave balm are plenty of scent for me. Anyone who thinks they need more odors than that polluting the airspace is usually mistaken.

    On special occasions, I might put a drop of patchoulli oil on my wrists and rub it in. You have to be really close to me to smell it. But my woman says it makes me smell like Jimi and Janice's love child.
