NASCAR Driver Carl Edwards: The Man Your Man Could Smell Like

Sasha Brown-Worsham

Looking for cologne that will make your man a winner behind the wheel (and in the sack)?

Well, then Avon's Turn 4XT might be the ticket. NASCAR driver Carl Edwards is the face of the cologne, which promises to "capture the spirit of competition and the thrill of the chase."

According to their release, the fragrance is:

Top Notes: Basil, Cilantro, Pepperwood; Mid Notes: Golden Ginger, Java Vetiver, French Lavender; Base Notes: Amber Wood, Cashmere Wood, Sandalwood, Mahogany Wood

Sounds great.

Except one thing. Fragrance on a man is weird. For some reason, cologne is a massive turnoff for me, even when it does combine "a masculine blend of powerful ingredients" and "the exhilaration that comes with risking it all for the win."

Actually, man smell already has a name: sweat. And it comes for free.

There is something about a whiff of cologne that turns me off. I know in some cultures it's normal and some women love it, but not me. I like the smell of skin and the occasional whiff of Irish Spring soap.

That is masculine to me.

So even though Edwards, who advanced from Camping World Truck Series to NASCAR’s elite Sprint Cup Series in just six years, has an impressive history (if you're into NASCAR), I like my man smelling like my man.

Do you like cologne on men?
