So today I was visiting a friend of mine. I took off my scarf, folded it, and handed it to my friend's wife to hang on a peg in the foyer. His wife, sniffing the air, takes the scarf and smells it.
"I knew something smelled like my grandmother. What is this?" she asked.
"Geo F. Trumper's Lavender Water" I say.
She wrinkles her nose and starts making coffee for my friend and I.
I'm twenty-six. I used to be pretty picky about fragrances and fragrance houses, but now I've taken to wear only two things: Musgo Real aftershave and G.F.T. Lavender Water. My wife has never really cared about my fragrances with the exception of Hammam Bouquet because again...smells like grandma.
Maybe grandma and I should hook up or something.
With that in mind, should I be looking into something new for my wardrobe? And if so, what's old school but doesn't "smell like grandma?" I'm looking for something in the vein of Musgo Real which is where my tastes lie - green, fougere-ish, and clean. Someone on here suggested Woods by Abercrombie and Fitch but I'm not so sure I feel comfortable buying a fragrance with a man's muscular torso on the front of it.
