Hello Ladies

mid 40's married male here.  Going away with the wife for an anniversary.  She has booked a nice room and will be doing other things as well.  Looking to dress for success and looking for advice on colonge.  Is there a type of colonge that men wear that really warms your insides?

One woman's comment I read on another site recommended a nice colonge along with a nice white button down shirt and pair of jeans gets her going..

Want it to be a special weekend.  any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

I am sensitive to perfumes and colognes so for me hubby's natural smell is just wonderful to me.

I do agree with the nice button down shirt, always fun to undo the buttons...just sayin'

I too find I'm sensative to purfumes of any kind.  I prefer my husband's natural smell.  Lucky him, he hates cologne.

Agreeing with the others...unless you know a cologne scent that your wife really likes, I wouldn't "surprise" her with a new one.  If you do wear some, just a couple of squirts will be plenty.  Sharing a "woman secret": put it on a "pulse point" (a place where you would be able to feel your pulse through your skin).

Enjoy your time away together Smile

I'm not in a relationship, but I remember there's nothing like a nice smelling man. Not too much cologne, my peference is the day after scent.
