Smelling nice

The Scent by Hugo Boss is what I usually wear, sometimes I switch it up with Versace Eros. I love them both and always get compliments.

I used to wear 1 Million by Paco Rabanne before it was adopted as the signature scent of straight men absolutely everywhere ddd
Tbh if you can wear 1 Million, I bet you could pull off Shalimar or Cinnabar (or vintage Opium). I wonder if you could even wear Mitsouko with its big cinnamon-peach-oakmoss focus? I think a lot of "old lady" perfumes actually work really well on men, because a lot of the reason they're seen as for "old ladies" is because the leather/incense/tobacco etc notes seem more masculine nowadays. I also think that wearing the "opposite sex" flankers can be a nice way to mix it up so maybe Lady Million would be an option...I know so many women who wear Spicebomb for instance.
 
I’ve got every single version of Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb. The standard is definitely my signature but I use Extreme for nights out and the other flavours when I’m in the mood. I fear they’re discontinuing it because their section is tiny now and they've stopped selling the travel spay versions. I might need to start thinking about a new scent.
A*Men Pure Havane, or YSL La Nuit de l'Homme (vintage version ONLY). I wonder if Habit Rouge would be worth a try too, or Homme Ideal.
 
Not sure if this 100% fits the brief of the thread, but I've been shopping around recently to try and find a decently scented antiperspirant, and failing.

Most antiperspirants that are relatively easy to come by smell like 'teenage male locker room', and ones that typically have more refined scents are usually normally just regular deodorants/natural deodorants. I'm not wed to the idea of actually smelling 'masculine' - very much comfortable enough to go with whatever, as per my across-the-board set of fragrances - but it needs to actually work, and preferably roll-on (I'm also not afraid of chemicals etc dd). Dove roll-ons probably hit the best balance, but I'm a bit tired of them.

Any suggestions? I'm happy to spend a bit of money on them if they're decent. I've been trying this recently, but it's not a great antiperspirant, despite what it says.

I've been using this for the past few years and it's great

My tastes are extremely Rocky Mountain and so, yanno, there's that. But I have gotten compliments when I wear Old Spice Fiji. It's a pleasant, clean lil tropical smell that doesn't scream "locker room in 2007."

This is just a deodorant though, most of the fine fragrance sticks are just smell with no properties of actually stopping sweat, which is what I think @Ensnare is asking about.

This might be worth checking out! I personally use their PM Gel because I need to use a product that's completely fragrance-/essential oil-free—but the form factor is a little fussy, so I feel like the classic stick with the sage oil might be your speed?

I've been using this for the last few months, the scent is nice but not overpowering and it does a decent job at stopping the sweating. It's pricey and can be a little messy being a weird hard cream stick.

I kept seeing ads for this brand - so I got one of their starter packs like yesterday. I know there’s a bunch of companies trying to shill expensive products right now, but these have a great scent and are rather long-lasting. They’re meant for everywhere you have sweat so they’re versatile too. I really like the Mt. Fuji one the most.

I realize it’s not the same economic value as the usual suggestions in this thread, but lately I’ve been using Old Spice Wolfthorn and it smells like candied oranges. It’s so refreshing because I’ve always hated those really masculine smells. I use it in regular deodorant form but a quick google search tells me it comes as an antiperspirant roll-on too.

I went for judging people who have Aesop soap in their bathrooms to becoming a victim and it's all thanks to Hwyl and Marrakech Intense, they really have that naturalness that you're either disgusted by or you absolutely love. Most of the other body products also smell incredible...even the incense! And I don't like incense that much!!! And the store is beautiful!

It’s soap.

Tom Ford Noir Intense is so good. It lingers for so long.

I'm way too poor to afford it, but I sprayed some on my wrist at the local department store and I could still smell it the next day, after a shower even. Let's start saving some money, it'd be the priciest cologne I have ever bought.

For those wanting the perfect vanilla gourmand scent, I can't recommend Eilish 1 enough. It might be marketed to females but I think it's kinda unisex-ish.

The trade lovessss that scent. I always get compliments from it.
