Reading articles on the net has become like reading the same information in several places. This article provides you with original information on eau de cologne.

You are bound to catch the scent of some gentleman's eau de cologne by simply walking into a nightclub or cinema. More than at any time before, so many men like to splash eau de cologne thinking they will capture the attention of some fine woman just as women use makeup or perfume to attract the attention of some fine, handsome man.

But did you know that in the olden days people used to wash themselves with eau de cologne? The first report of eau de cologne being used instead of bath water was in the eighteenth century. It was also used as a mouthwash and sometimes even as an enema!

Those were the days when people believed eau de cologne could cure any kind of disease. Even the manufacturers of eau de cologne marketed it in the same way. Today, we know more about science and medicine, and most of us will probably never try to take a sip of our favorite cologne. The truth is, back in those days, people did not bathe nearly as often as we do today. Perfume and eau de cologne were necessities they hoped could cover up body odor. Eau de cologne was also used to eliminate nasty odors of different rooms in the house. This doesn't happen any more thanks to scented plug-ins and fragrant candles. It's good to know we have all these fragrances to enjoy!

There are hundreds of advertisements for perfume or eau de cologne on television and in magazines. When men go out on a date they love to splash nice fragrant cologne on their skin thinking that the fragrances give them more sex appeal. Many men believe that the way they smell determines the quality of women they date. It's so easy to do: just dab some cologne on the neck before heading out, and once you are in the nightclub, try leaning in close to the girl you are interested in while she is dancing. Before you know it she will be enchanted by the way you smell and how you are able to move around the dance floor! Another good suggestion is to keep that bottle of cologne handy in one of your inside pockets of your jacket just in case you need some more!

Not all women like men's eau de cologne. In the old days, it was considered acceptable to wear perfume or even eau de cologne at the office. Nowadays, though, many men, women and even children are allergic to certain fragrances, and in some cases the situation had been so bad that many companies and schools had to ban the wearing of perfumes and eau de cologne.

However, studies on fragrances continue to show that perfumes and eau de cologne can indeed enhance sexual attraction towards other people.

In conclusion, it may be fair to say that perfume and eau de cologne are just what is needed to determine and enhance intimacy.
