When I think about why I'm not impressed by guys wearing "strongly masculine" scents, the only conclusion I can draw is that they're not trying to impress me. If it has anything to do with me (Or other guys) it's to claim he's the more powerful guy. More often I think it's just to impress women, and independently of whether or not that works, the implied statement is "I want to be more successful than you with women". It's actually a slight in a way, though a polite one, and anyone who does want to be successful with women does similar things.I think you bring up an important point. Perhaps the reason why, like you, I'm repulsed by generic masculine scents has to do with the fact that the people wearing them in my experience have not been particularly pleasant. But then again, if the most agreeable guy I know wears Aventus, I'm not sure I'd feel good smelling it on him. Might be just me.
