Best Perfumes for the Gym

I’ve been asked to do a piece on the best perfumes for the gym.  I know many people are opposed wearing perfume to the gym but let’s be honest here people, not everyone can stay fresh and smell good after sweating for an hour in the gym.

If you don’t want to wear a perfume you can wear deodorant (scented or unscented), scented body lotion or body splash. But, if you are like me and addicted to perfumes then be careful. Do not spray too much, the gym is the worst place for overpowering perfumes; and be mindful of others when choosing your scent.

These are some recommendation from me but you can choose anything fresh or mild. Try to go for perfumes with softer sillage.
