There was a bloke I once knew who was convinced that the route to being maximally attractive to the most amount of women was lined with an eye-watering amount of aftershave/cologne. As far as he was concerned, this was as close as it got to a clinical approach to flirting. Not good conversation, not a charming manner. No. Instead, scent. But, like, all the scent. Slathering himself in various smells as if he was the only surviving victim of a tragic Old Spice factory explosion, he would waft into the pub on the tide of his own olfactory war crime, announced ahead of time by a fell voice on the wind. He maintained, for as long as I knew him, that this was a surgical strike straight to the cerebro-erogenous bullseye of A Woman’s subconscious.
