Not  at all, I just said it was childish, that's all.  It's the poor person's one-upmanship version of having a go at people who live in the wrong area, haven't got a big house or expensive car.  He can't have a real go at my 'stench' either because he doesn't know me. That was also kind of my point.

Unscented deodorant is incredibly hard to find in Korea, but pretty easy to find via iherb or Amazon Prime, however I'm not sure about now with Corona...

If you go to Hyewha Station on a Sunday and head to the Catholic Church near there, you will find a Filipino market and even some Filipino stores around there. Ask them for Tawas, it is unscented and comes in a stick or powder form. It is great. Dirt cheap too.
There is no known medical cure for stupidity!

My suggestion is to figure out what season (humidity is a big factor) and occasion you'd want a fragrance for i.e. summer office. Check YouTube  or Google for mens' summer office fragrances, make a list, then go on..

https://www.fragrancenet.com/ni/boutiques/perfume-samples?f=1f!6R

and order some samples. You might know this, but fragrances have notes/ingredients (top, heart and base). Top notes are what you smell during the first 20min or so, heart notes after about an hour and the base notes for the next 5hrs or so. So, you HAVE TO wear it throughout the day to check if you like it.

All of this.

But I also wanted to add that you also have to consider your own body chemistry, too. It's going to affect how any cologne or perfume will smell after a while. What smells good on one person doesn't mean it's going to smell good on another person. This is partly why it's so important to test out scents for a day before making a purchase. You don't want to spend $200+ on a bottle only to find out that it doesn't work well on you.

Example: My mom smells great wearing White Diamonds. She's not a fan of the scent herself so she doesn't wear it often, but when she does, it smells sooooo good on her. But a coworker I used to work with also wore White Diamonds, and it literally smelled like vinegar on her. I didn't even realize she was wearing White Diamonds until she told me, and I had to gently break it to her (because no one else would lol) that it didn't smell good on her. I helped her find something that did (Chanel No. 5), and it smelled amazing on her. More expensive than White Diamonds, but she was a lot happier with it. Most people won't experience that kind of extreme (although I did know a guy whose cologne made him smell like he'd been rolling in roadkill), but what you might experience is a waxy scent or smelling like dead flowers (even if what you are supposed to be wearing isn't flowery). Or it could be a scent that breaks down on you too fast. One person found a toilette that she really liked, and it smelled good on her, but you literally couldn't smell it on her after about 20 minutes. I think she compromised and spritzed some on her clothes instead of on her skin, and that managed to make the scent last for around 4 hours (still not long enough imo) but not everyone will want to do that.

So, find something you enjoy smelling, but don't forget to test how that scent changes on you throughout the day before committing to a purchase. Try to get feedback from others.

And DON'T make the mistake of putting too much on. The higher priced shit is especially powerful. You literally only need to lightly spritz or dab some on in some strategic places, and you'll be good. This is 100x moreso in the summer. Heat definitely enhances the smell, and it can also greatly enhance certain notes that aren't meant to come off as strongly. This is why there are different perfumes for different seasons. The weather and climate DOES affect them, right along with your own body chemistry.

True, which is why I always order a 1ml vial first to sample how it wears on my skin. Everyone's going apeshit over Dior Sauvage and when I tried it, it smelled extremely generic and somewhat piercingly artificial on me. Same with Creed Aventus, it smelled good on me but not $435 good.

I'm trying not to overload with information, but it's fun to talk about so... the concentration is usually what makes a fragrance strong or weak. Generally, you're going to be dealing with these 3 (there are others but these are the most common):

EDC (Eau de Cologne)
EDT (Eau de Toilette)
EDP (Eau do Parfum)

I forget the exact numbers but typically, these refer to how much concentrated perfume oil is in the bottle. EDC has the least, EDC has more and EDP has the highest concentration. The concentration usually determines how strong the fragrance will be so... tread lightly when wearing an EDP to a place where you'll be sitting close to people for a while, or in a humid environment... even the most pleasing fragrance will end up becoming pungent and unbearable to those around you.

This is the mistake many make, dude buys or is gifted, God forbid "Paco Rabanne's One Million" (a club fragrance) and decides to wear it everywhere, including work!

Last one, which I do, ASK A WOMAN! Better yet, ask the opinion of a trusted female friend at work. It's a fun conversation starter and will really give you an idea of what people REALLY think about the fragrance you're wearing; whether you should change it, tone it down, wear more. etc.

Enjoy

Yeah, it should also be noted by those who aren't as well informed on the subject that a different oil concentration doesn't just affect the strength of the scent -- it also changes the scent itself. So just because a cologne has the same name as its parfum or toilette counterpart, it doesn't mean you're getting the same product and scent.

For example, Chanel No. 5 comes in four (maybe five) different variations, with the parfum being its most concentrated (as parfums are) and classic scent. The other variations all smell different, although you can tell they're related (so like siblings). The toilette in particular is used more as a refresher to the parfum so that if you find the parfum fading more than you want it to too soon in the day, you can layer it with a toilette to give it a boost. But if you use the toilette on its own, it smells like a completely different perfume. And some people prefer it to the parfum.

I personally like to layer strong and robust toilettes (so think ambers) on top of my sweet parfums. Rounds out the scents, and they also act to calm the stronger notes a bit to make them a little more understated on me. And it smells really good on me without being overwhelming. Friends have tried to copy my particular blends because they love the way I smell, but it doesn't work well on them, lol. They have to find their own blends and concentrations.

Waygook.org users Chinguetti and Aristocrat literally just taught me a whole bunch about something I never knew about. I never understood the difference between the different types of perfumes.

I used to wear Burberry London (not sure if it was EDC, T or P - look at me using terms I just learned) in the winter, and Hugo Boss XY in the summer. I have a weird body chemistry and everything I've ever tried has ended up smelling bad on me, except those two worked somehow.

I'm still perplexed as to why you posted this here, CO4. Do you have a lot of downtime?

You've followed me around the web. You saw my video. Alright. Then you went through weeks of reddit history. You assembled a cute little photo.

For what purpose? Did I date your ex-girlfriend, or something? If you're the OinK guy, Thomas Roadguy, then you really, really need a hobby. Because A)  the amount of investigating you do into people's lives is too much and B) I don't know you. I've never wronged you. This isn't Oldboy.

Are you concerned about the students? Oh yeah, there's a tonne of them in an English language website in a forum about teaching English in their country. And they'll totally sift through pages of people's post history. Korean teenagers are like that. Def.

So what's the purpose? Seriously, get a hobby. r/movies , r/creativewriting r/filmmaking, anything.

My friend knows I like Korean movies and they were asking if that was an actress from The Wondergirls. Hint: It's not.

I'm a red blooded male, I watch my share of adult content. You're a person who digs up dirt on............. strangers?

Do my posts here seem too content with life? You're trying to take me down a peg? Who knows. But it's bizarre behaviour.

You posted this on your 6th post, the first one sans moderator approval, using, essentially, my name. Get a hobby. Or does working late nights as a marketing manager keep you busy? Not busy enough it seems.

And to everyone else here, thanks for not engaging with this imbecile.

Speaking of reddit, I'm having trouble posting photo submissions.

I'm not shadowbanned, I've checked and my comments get upvotes and downvotes. haha

But when I try to submit a photo, it'll submit for 20 seconds and then just go to my profile page.  The submission ain't there.

I have the new camera so this is very disappointing. I messaged the mods of r/korea and they haven't responded.

Any ideas?

I just find it fun to chat about, particularly as I love procrastinating when I have assignments due.

The last 3 things are performance, sillage and projection.

Performance is how long the fragrance lasts on your skin. EDP generally lasts longer, not always.

Projection is how far away from your body the fragrance projects. Can people only smell it when they hug you or can the smell it from a few meters away? When going to a club, you're generally looking to get noticed so more projection helps by announcing. When you're expecting to get lucky and want something your partner will enjoy as they get close, it's better to have the scent be discovered.

Sillage is the scent trail left behind when someone wearing a fragrance walks past, kind of like the ripples after dropping a stone in water. We've all had to stop walking for a second to take in the alluring fragrance of the person who just walked past or had our moms instruct us to open all the windows in the living room after one of our gaudy aunts visited.

The fewer fragrances you plan on keeping, the more careful you need to be with what you buy.

Yeah, it's a precise science, lol. A lot of thought and care is behind it, and you can understand why most people can't be bothered with it. Most people just find something that they personally like the smell of and that's within their price range, then hope for the best. Sometimes that works out for them, sometimes it doesn't, but they're not always aware of when it doesn't, haha.

These don't really exist here in Korea, but back in the States a lot of the people they have working behind more of the upscale perfume counters are professionals who can not only find a perfume that YOU personally like the smell of but that which also works well on you. Some places even get down to the nitty gritty and have you fill out questionnaires about your diet and lifestyle so that they can zero in on a more specific selection for you.

And then they have those crazy places that will actually formulate a perfume specific to your body. The good boutiques that do this are really expensive, and with good reason, haha. I've heard of places here that will sort of do that for you, too, but they're more like, "What kind of scents do you like?" and then they'll slap those together and that's your custom scent, lol.

Yeah, jumping into a forum as a greenhorn and poopoo-ing on one of its oldest active members probably ain't the best idea.

I'm not above criticism, by any stretch, but man. What the hell is this?
