What Do Men Want?

Before we delve into what men want - we have some unfinished business with women's education - Tips for Wearing Fragrance.

Consider layering tones. Use all the same fragrance in various products. Begin with shower or bath gel and then rub in body lotion or spray with a matching after bath spray.

Finally apply the scent preferably as Perfume or Eau de Perfume liberally. Apply the fragrance starting on your lower body working your way up to the top. This helps to diffuse it over your body.

Apply Perfume on body points such as the inside of your elbow, back of your knees, wrist, neck and cleavage where the perfume stays warmer longer. Spraying a little into the air is also good if you walk straight into the perfume.

Most men a fairly unpretentious when it comes to wearing fragrances - contrary to what most experts recommend - and I'm referring to layering. Men don't usually use perfume, body lotions, powders, or creams as a base - in most cases a good after shave is enough. One thing you should not try to negotiate is the scent of the after shave or cologne.

Men prefer fresh sporty scents, or deep masculine tobacco and musk scents. Men will not wear women's fragrances, but the reverse is true for women. "One man one fragrance" is a true statement, so if you want to surprise your man with a new fragrance be sure to select one in the same tone line, don't try to switch a man from tobacco to musk, or the other way around - it won't work.

In case you didn't know, a pound of rose essential oil costs $5,000 and up, while jasmine essential oil can exceed $25,000 per pound. But, we'll talk more about that later.
