  • Best Women's Choice Cologne for Men

It’s a tough task finding the best cologne for men, as there are so many factors involved.  The thing is there’s no single cologne that you can call the best. One or two colognes will never get it done for you as the right cologne for you can vary on your mood, personality, the place where you are wearing it to, the time of the day, the season and the occasion. So as you can see, there are too many things to consider. But don’t worry, by the time you get to the bottom of this page, you will know exactly how to load up your arsenal of colognes.

A few words about what I refer to as colognes in this cologne guide is necessary. Fragrances, depending on the perfume concentration are Eau De Perfume, Eau de Toilette and Eau de Cologne, with the last having the least strength of all. But regardless of this, I’m going to call all of them colognes.

Okay let me tell you the long story in short if you are not too much into reading!

Hermes Terre d’Hermes

Created by master perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena in 2006, this one is considered to be one of the best, if not the best cologne for men to come out in the last 10 years. This fragrance has a certain elegance to it that makes it stand out. There’s an addictive quality to it, some say it’s seductive and some say it smells like money (!). That brings us to one conclusion, that it is unique and manly, and certainly one of the best.

This is such a versatile fragrance that you can wear it during any season, time or place. You simply can’t go wrong with this one.

BEST CLASSIC COLOGNES FOR MEN

Acqua Di Gio By Giorgio Armani

To me it feels like a crime not to start the classics with this one. Introduced in 1996, this one has always been there in the top selling list. It has a citrus opening with marine notes; floral and fruity middle notes finishing in amber, cedar and musk. You will feel the coastal air and be able to smell the sea and the sun. Classic indeed.

Egoiste Chanel for men

Egoiste is a very manly fragrance despite the use of rose note in this. The rose is mysterious bulgarian rose that comes out as a middle note along with carnation and warm cinnamon topped with rosewood and coriander. The base notes in this fragrance are sandalwood, intensive vanilla and ambrette seeds. This EDT has been around since 1990 but will not make you smell like an old man when you wear it. The nose behind this classic is Jacques Polge.

Aramis for men by Aramis

Another one from the year 1966 with big longevity and projection.  This is a very masculine fragrance and has a strong character to it.

Green Irish Tweed By Creed For Men

This is a classic from the house of Creed. According to the official statement, it resembles “walk through the Irish countrywide”. Well, I’ve never been to Ireland but man this smells good. This smells fresh, rich and classy. Can be worn all around the year except for winter when citrus-based fragrances don’t do really well. Best worn during the day but you can wear it during the night too with confidence.

Cold Weather Colognes

How to choose cologne

Choosing the right cologne for the right place at the right time can be tricky. Having a loaded perfume counter or cheesy commercials will never make things easier for you. But there are a few simple rules that can help you solve the dilemma.

Rule #1: Where are you wearing it?

Where are you headed? Is it going to be a casual outing or a romantic date? Are you choosing one for the office or for clubbing? Just like there are proper cloths for a place, there are perfect colognes. Perfumes are closely associated with emotions, so think about what you’re going to feel where you’re going. If the smell feels right, then it is the right one.

Some might come and tell you that there are colognes that can go with any place or any occasion. Don’t listen to them, they know nothing. Trust me when I say this, there’s no single cologne that suits all place or occasion.

Rule #2 Test it out:

You can’t decide on a cologne instantly, they evolve over time. There are top notes, middle notes and base notes in a non-linear cologne, each of the layers can smell distinct and can vary skin to skin. And never make a final call based on a paper test.

Rule #3 : Don’t wear colognes to please others:

While it’s a good thing that wearing a good cologne will make you smell good and most people around you are likely to like this fact, don’t let this be the sole purpose of wearing cologne. You should wear a cologne for yourself only. Don’t wear something that YOU are not comfortable with no matter what other people think. The reason behind this is YOU should be the one to give your cologne a personality, not the other way around and if you are not confident and comfortable with a cologne, you won’t be able to pull it off perfectly.

Romantic colognes for a date

Before we get on with the list, there are a few things to consider.

First, if it’s going to be an intimate date, you don’t need very powerful cologne. They should be able to smell you even if you go with something lighter. In fact, a powerful cologne can chock them out and thing might just turn out the way you were not expecting.

Second thing, if you are going out for the first time, you want to wear something a bit more powerful, which can reach out and create an impression. The person will associate you with that smell so it needs to be noteworthy.

Third, and probably the most important thing is, you don’t want to remind here of her ex. As it is an ex, the memories won’t be very pleasant. So you don’t want to wear a cologne that is commonly worn by a lot of people likeLe Male, Cool Water,One Million,Acqua Di Gioor Armani Code.

So Let’s get on with the list-

Spicebomb By Victor, for close cozy encounters. Woody, Spicy, Cinnamon, Tobacco, Pink Pepper, Saffron and leather summarize this one.
Chanel Allure Homme: Citrus and vanilla, very seductive. Does justice to its name as it draws people.
La Nuit de l`Homme: This one is the perfect nighttime fragrance for a date. It has a powerful masculine mysterious vive to it, which is perfect for a date.
A*Men Pure Malt: When you’re not expecting to get very close, this one is perfect as it will definitely reach out. It has the core feel of the original A*men but smells a bit soaked in whiskey, in a good way.
Dior Homme Intense: It will reach out, seduce and do all the things you want it to. This one is a great one for date, regardless of where you wear this one.
Creed Aventus: Smells great, smells rich, really versatile. Works both in suited or casual scenario.

Colognes for Clubbing

When you go for that wild night out, no cologne with a faint heart will do. You need something that projects like crazy and lasts insanely. The colognes below are just that.
