Do you know what people notice first when a person is passing by, talking to you, or standing beside you? Your smell. Do you like being in a close distance with smelly people? I don’t think so.
Men usually produce more sweats than women because men tend to do heavier tasks. Some of us smoke cigarettes. Those activities will produce an awful body odor or lingering smell. According to Elite Daily, women hate stinky men, they demand you to wear nice perfume 24/7 not a cheap cologne. It is one of the first things a woman notices.
I believe all of you want to smell nice near your dearest girl. Here’s top 5 perfume for men that I picked up and suggest for you guys:
1. Davidoff Cool Water (USD 30)

The heart notes include geranium, neroli, jasmine, and sandalwood. The base is composed of cedar wood, musk, amber and tobacco. It was created by Pierre Bourdon in 1988. It’s a perfect perfume for your everyday use. The smell isn’t too strong but believe me, girls dig it. You can buy it here.
