Who can resist a man who smells good?

Like the other Buzz Girls, I like a man who will listen to me, who loves animals, and who can make me laugh. I also can't resist a man who smells good.

It started in high school when the boys would drench themselves in Polo, Drakkar, and Obsession. I still turn around and look for some of my past loves if I get a whiff of those three colognes.

I have always been fascinated with the link between memories and certain smells. And don't even get me started on the pheromone discussion. So cool. Yes, I truly am a geek!

Anyway, is there a smell that reminds you (good or bad) of a past love/crush? Do tell!

And in other news, that totally doesn't stink.

Steph, I am delighted to see the posting of your third sale! Yay you and yay us for getting to read more of Aspen's story.

The smell of English Leather brings back wonderful "guy" memories for me...

I had forgotten all about English Leather, Tina! :)

Drakkar... oh, the memories. =)

I had a mega-crush my freshman year of college--this total hunk whom I never met, but I seemed to pass by every time I walked across campus. And every time he passed I caught a whiff of an amazing smell. My friend knew his roommate and discovered that it was Polo Sport. It still makes me think of Rob. Sigh.

My high school boyfriend used Drakkar Noir. And who can forget the potent Polo! Some girls hate it, I like it.
