Instructions state to apply Testim in the morning. However, when reading several forums some users indicate the smell is not entirely pleasant. I am new to it and only on my 3rd day. I have a quick routine to get out the door each morning and don't want to add another thing to do or slow me down, and also concerned about the smell, so I am applying Testim in the evenings. Can anyone tell me if that will matter or not?
Testim - When to apply? Does a.m. or p.m. make a difference?

The instructions state to apply in the morning after your morning shower on clean, bare skin. With a little drying time, the smell of the gel will be gone.
The morning is preferred because it mimics the body's daily peak as far as natural T-levels are concerned.
Also, being covered by a t-shirt, there is less chance of cross-contamination to another subject during the day... but applying it in the evening or at night, there might be a greater chance to touch bare skin to bare skin with a significant other or date. But you can limit that risk by washing it off before contact.
In general, you won't "hurt" anything by applying it regularly at the same time.
It will be several weeks before you notice a change or benefits.
