Before buying a perfume, Hockstein recommends that men take some time away from the scents so that they can reassess their choice. "We recommend that people smell their own skin if they're not wearing a scent, in order to smell something neutral, or to step outside, get fresh air and then come back in," says Hockstein. Some perfumeries uses a coffee smell to neutralize other odors, but Hockstein prefers citrus. Try a lemon.
