IT MAY APPEAR that I am moving around the male body one part at a time, but guys, let’s face it. Y’all need a little help with this one.
We know, we know. It’s not that you don’t care … ish. We know you think about NOTHING ELSE but how to sweep us off our feet — after you have wrestled with your ancient work computer, fought off your micromanaging boss’ boss, shooed away a dozen needy co-workers and finally sat down to get the job done before you have to rush to the store for tonight’s dinner, prepare said feast and then find time to work out.
Cue screeching record sound. Working out offers up a golden opportunity to look stupid hot, right, men?
Nothing is sexier than a man who has just beaten a heavy bag to death, only to emerge from his home gym with blood-red eyes and sweat pour from his pores. Let it dry just a bit (a bod super slick and drenched in sweat pressed against you is only appropriate in one arena).
Voilà! You now have Man Scent.
Man Scent is most frequently experienced in early morning, when dudes have been dozing for hours and the chill of the air has yet to cool down the neck, nor has a shower introduced the overpoweringly strong smell of soap.
Don’t get confused, gentlemen. This is not an invitation to live in unwashed basketball shorts and limit bathing to thrice-monthly. Man Scent is not to be confused with Stinky Man. He’s a whole different animal, mostly tied to inappropriate treatment of footwear, and he is not who women are chasing.
Man Scent is that whiff of the person you heart that sends out love chemicals. It is a fragrance only you, as intimate partner, can detect. It smells great.
Master it, and love will grow. Wallow in it, and find yourself bookmarking Match.com.
