    Your thoughts on the smell of a man. I don't mean "metromansmell", with all the makeup, cologne, perfume, pomade, deoderant, etc, etc. I mean real man who didn't mask everything for the last (?) hours. Natural.
    You men can answer too, if you're into that sort of thing.;)

    I love it. Hubby stopped wearing deodorant, as did I, and he smells so much better.

    Mmmmm I like the musky odor of a man. I enjoy that smell of his pubic area. If I could just bury my face in the hair there and inhale... ahhhhhh I am a happy woman.

    Speaking for myself - I enjoy it when I know I have "man musk" after some sort of labor. I do NOT, however, like smelling of body odor or other things that I equate with being unclean. (And, yes, there is a difference that I can detect in myself at least.)

    As far as for others - it's only appealing when I'm already attracted to the "musky" individual (man or woman). Otherwise it's off-putting and all I can think is, "Couldn't you just clean up a bit? Please?"

    This comes down to basic animal instinct. As long as a man is "clean" and by that i mean he showers daily and wears deodorant and what not.....then if he goes out and gets all sweaty from working or exercising, that is an extremely sexy smell to me. Maybe all thepheromones or something who knows.
    Did you know that there is strong evidence that suggests that when a person does not like a member of the opposite sex's "natural" body odor that it's a good indicator that your DNA would not mesh up to make a viable and healthy offspring? And vice versa

    I've seen those studies. Also the tests where people were asked to evaluate attractiveness based solely off of another individual's smell.

    When I think about it - all of my partners have "smelled right/good" to me... So I don't question the legitimacy of the claims that more appealing/attractive people smell better.

    Wouldn't surprise me. I note you don't consider a man clean unless he "wears deodorant and what not." My wife asks me to not use any added scent. So I don't. I'm happy smelling like a man. :cool:

    Well i guess the correct word their would have been antiperspirent. doesnt need to be scented. Becauase man OR woman armpits are just one of those special little places in which sweat magically goes from phermones to straight B.O. lol

    We don't use any antiperspirant and we just smell like pheromones I guess. We only smelled like b.o. when we used to use it. I find no need for it.

    I love the way a man smells so long as he takes care of his body.

    A clean body allows the natural scents to be better appreciated.
    My SO rarely wears perfumes and has a subtle yet intoxication to me) body scent.
    Mine is much stronger and even I like it but she goes nuts burrowing her nose in my armpits and also adores inhaling my exhaled breath.
    She is a real animal lover I guess :)

    Ummm....I love smelling my man's body. His scent alone get's me wet & wild! But I do also enjoy when he wears a "splash" of his Cologne too. He has some very Sexy smelling colognes... Either way he smells Scentual to me.... Lick ~

    I love the 'man smell'. Though, I've noticed I only like it with certain men I've been in bed with. I've also noticed I only like the taste of certain guys (as far as kissing, and cum).. But every man I enjoyed smelling, I also enjoyed tasting.
