Nylon socks = dress socks and hose...
What are "trainers"?

Another good idea would be to wash your feet :)

Oh come on. You Americans are disasters. If we're expected to know the American for "trainers" you should know the English for "sneakers" !

Ok, my face is red. Allow me to pull this "trainer" out of my mouth. :)

I do wash my feet, i take a lot of pride in keeping myself fresh! I don't mind admitting to using face masks, moisturiser etc, oh and i keep the old nails looking good too (well my girlfriend does them for me, isnt she great?) Men should take better care of themselves and enjoy things like face masks instead of all this rugged business! I'm a red blooded male, yet i do it! Cmon chaps, give it a go!

I'm with you, Ex. I grew up in a beauty salon. My single mom was a manicurist. I was reading Cosmo at 9 y/o. I had regular facials, manicures and pedicures. I'm more male than most and am confident enough in my masculinity to groom myself. Glad you agree.

Guys, I've got to agree with you.  There's nothing sexy about dirty fingernails -- or smelly feet. Putting your shoes in the freezer?  Talk about cold feet.  Is that where the expression came from?  Personally, I love a well groomed man.  I especially don't like it when they need a haircut and hair is growing down the back of their neck.  And by the way, Ians Dad, I didn't know what trainers were either.  Glad you asked so I didn't have to have the red face.

You guys are kiddin', right. The cosmetics industry makes a ****load of money selling products that are useless and do nothing more than make you smell unnatural. I find that wearing natural fibres, showering daily and keeping my nails and hair short is all the maintenance I need. I would rather that people didn't smell anything when they met me.

It's not about making your hair and nails smell good. It's about having groomed hair, trimmed nails, fresh breath and clean feet. Carey Grant once said, "If a man is going to subject me to having to look at him, he should have the decency to comb his hair." I agree, clean is better than covered. I rarely do colognes, just soap and basic grooming. It's surprizing how many people don't.

cmon, i'm sure women would prefer a guy who kept himself lookin, smelling nice and took pride in a little vanity? A little eau de toilette can go a ong way to telling people about you. I have loads of eau de toilettes and you wear them according to your mood. For example, a lighter fresher one such as Kiton, Chiemsee, Armani-he for the daytime/work. Maybe a spicy one if you are going out for a meal may i suggest Gucci Rush or Ralph Lauren, then for a night out on the tiles a more sweet and crazy smell, like Ultraviolet by Paco Robanne... it all makes semse, you now it does...

OK then, I'll concede that 20 years ago I may have had a bathroom cupboard full of these products. I don't believe it influenced the opinion of women towards me, they were (and still are) attracted to something else.
These days, with a healthy dose of middle aged cynicism, blokes that come into my office smelling of roses or musk or whatever just make my sinuses react.

Roberth,
It isn't the only thing that attracts us but it is part of the attraction.  I can often remember turning my head to see who was wearing a particularly good smelling cologne.  Then, if I like what I saw, I would comment on how good he smelled, and it opened up conversation.  I think Exodus has the right idea, only I'm jealous.  He has more colognes than I have perfumes.

I had 14 earlier this year but managed to cut my eau de toilettes down to 10 now! I agree that smell doesnt improve how attractive you are for example, a good eau de toilette wouldnt make old Ken Dodd (below) any better looking.



Its just something added on top. Just as us men like women to look after themselves and be well presented, no underarm hair/hairy legs, i think women like us to make some effort too.

I don't generally like colognes or perfumes, especially when it smells like someone spilled the bottle on themselves, it just makes me sneeze.  That said, a SUBTLE whiff can be nice.  Good hygene is the best though.  I love the scent of my sweetie's skin and hair.

I guess its down to personal taste. Nobody likes someone who has bathed in parfum! Agree with Donnah though, nice smelling hair is a good touch, mine always smells of fudge! I think oral hygene is also important, nice smelling breath and clean teeth, just shows that the person looks after themself

Smells like fudge.  Good enough to eat?  Is this discussion moving to How Many Gram of Carbs are in Semen?  What I don't like for women sre the scents that smell like fruit.  Generally, I'd rather smell like something floral or just fresh, than like food.

My girlfriend claire likes the old fudge smell! So yeah, good enough to eat indeed! I wouldnt suggest eating hair though, you'll get fur balls and then need to eat grass in order to hoik it back up! [xx(]

Hmmm, getting very feline.  But I didn't think the idea of the smell was to get your hair eaten.  Thought the idea was to transfer that thought to other anatomical areas, but then, that's part of the other discussion.  Women do like sweets in general, though.
