Ask the MB -- Hot Spring Fragrances

Lacoste Elegance Deodorant Stick via Macy's, $22.00

Q: What are the hot new fragrances for spring summer 2008? I really like Lacoste Elegance.
--Ben


A: Ben, no such thing as a "hot new fragrance" in our book. We've recently made our case against cologne. We don't want you looking (or smelling) like the poor loser fromThe Real Housewives of New York. If you insist on a fragrance other than what comes naturally through standard toiletry and hair product usage, do it subtley in either a deordorant stick or after shave balm.
