Here's the deal with men's cologne, or in this case, parfum. Always be cool with it and do not ever douse yourself so that those nearest to you tear up before fleeing the room to escape the fumes. After a shower spray a tiny mist on your pulse points - wrists, neck, etc. - dry off and, if you can still detect the scent, you put too much on. OK. That said: When you use parfum make sure it's good. English Leather and High Karate are not good. Jack Black Blue Mark Eau de Parfum, with Japanese ginger and juniper, is better than good; it's the best. It's fresh and light so you'll smell great and do fine.
