Fragrances and Perfumes
The best fragrance, cologne or perfume to use in America, for either a man or a woman, is a simple one. While men's fragrances are available, many men do not use them.

One type of scent to avoid, especially for men, is that of musk. A light, subtle scent works best for both genders, or none at all if in doubt. Remember that many soaps, deodorants, and other toiletries widely sold in the United States have their own scents, which may conflict with those of perfumes and colognes.

When you use a fragrance every day, you get used to the smell and can often put on too much without realizing it. Ask a friend if you may be overdoing it. You won't be able to tell on your own. Remember, with fragrances, less is more.
