Hygiene Tips From A Nerdy Black Bear: Smelling Good

Nerdy Black Bear is hear to talk about scents, smelling good, and the products you can buy and use to accomplish a perfect natural man scent for yourself. Why have I brought up this topic? Well a lot of men out there want to smell good, but are having a hard time finding the right product for themselves. On the other hand, some men are just lazy and like walking around smelling like the walking dead but that's another post for another time. As men, we are primal  creatures. We go on our scenes, like the way things look, taste and smell. A wonderful smell is sometimes a first impression, and it's important to get it right.

Finding The Right Products

I can see how it could seem overwhelming trying to figure out how to find the right products to fit your personality and style. There are so many products to choose from. Deodorants, shampoos, gels, and lotions can all come with a distinct fragrance these days. The key to finding the right product comes from understanding your everyday life.

Start with your personality. If you find yourself to be more relaxed and calm, a loud and over the top smell wouldn't fit you, and if you're more of a bold person who likes to take risks then a loader smell will fit you better. Finding your right scent is trail and error process, so if you don't get it right the first time it's okay. Let's use me as an example. I'm more of a laid back person, so I like subtle scents, a scent that people would not notice until they are near me. For the people wondering what items I use, those will be at the bottom of this post.

Being Cost Friendly and Smart

Many men out there don't want to spend or don't have a lot of money to spend on high end cologne and other fragrance products.  I'm that person, so when I don't have the money to buy the overpriced scents I will by regular body wash, lotions, and deodorants. The first rule to smelling good is to wash your ass and use deodorant. Some of you are saying, I do that now but I still can't find the distinctive fragrance that fits my personality. Don't fear Nerdy Black Bear is here!

You don't have to spend a lot of money to have a distinctive fragrance. A lot of guys use so many different products that they overpower each other actually causing the different product to conflict with one another. Using the same scent can maximize and enhance the smell. Axe is an good example of using the same type of smell through all your products, plus it is sold cheaper as a bundle pack that includes the minor things a man needs to smell his best. Another way to save a lot of money is to find products that have multiple purposes, like shampoo that is also a conditioner so you don't have to buy two items. Try to buy a good body wash that can be used for your  face, body and hair.
