Sometimes you have to play the used car salesman to the hilt, just to be aware of knowing the point of reference.
Splash on some Ice Blue Aqua Velva to make that statement... and don't forget the metallic striped tie.
I don't mind being "that guy".
after years of trial and error, I've found what products compliment each other and what do not. It's not rocket science. Proraso Shaving Cream + Aqua Velva Ice Blue = Good. Pinaud Lilac Veg + pretty much anything else = bad (I do enjoy it by itself).

You are right.
You will most likely not see it in regular shops though (perfume).
And even eau the perfume is usually sold for women.

Sounds like you smell like a French whore.
Myrsol Aqua De Limon is a great cooling aftershave with a lemon scent that at least on me fades in a few minutes,I usually follow it up with Feather Kanwa which is a very good aftershave balm,also it has no scent.
I'm a fan a after shaves that have a mild scent that only lasts a short while. I don't use them for the scent, although it nice when they smell good. I use them to make my face look and feel better after scraping it with a very sharp object.

I don't like to use two or more scented products at once. You never know what you are gonna smell like. One scented thing and every other thing unscented, is the way I go.
Banned for Life from "Over There"... TWICE!
If I am going to wear cologne, I use an unscented balm after my shave. I have both Polo aftershave splash and Polo cologne; I use one or the other, never both - it would be far too over powering. No matter what the scent, I think using both AS and cologne would scream desperation and/or poor taste. And I would certainly never use a scented aftershave, no matter how lightly scented I thought it was, and a differently scented cologne. Never mix scents. For instance, I would never use Proraso, Old Spice, Aqua Velva, etc. aftershave and then apply Polo, Eau Sauvage, or Guerlain Vetiver. YOU may think they work together or compliment each other, but they don't. YOU may think that Proraso/AV/whatever is lighlty scented enough after the dry down that it would not interfere with your cologne, but most people who are important enough to get close enough may pick up on the conflicting scents.
I would never wear an AS and a Cologne. One or the other.
If I'm planning on wearing cologne, then I use witch hazel instead of AS.
My personal opinion is that "conflicting" or "complementary" scents when it comes to soap and AS is in the nose of the beholder, and since the smell of the soap is gone after you rinse your face, a moot point anyway.
Like so many things, it depends. If I'm using Clubman, SR or any other AS as strongly scented I don't use cologne/EdT. If I use a lightly scented (or one that matches) AS then I'll use a cologne or EdT. Keep in mind that I don't spray my cologne/EdT on. I apply a drop (?) to the back of my ears, throat and wrists.
