Archive for the ‘Best Cologne for Men’ Category

What’s up readers. I did a quick blurb on three of the best cologne for men that I think are ones you should consider testing out. All these brands are pretty damn popular and have a sweet line of other fragrances that you can check out (I’ll mention a few others worth trying from each brand). If you’re new to wearing cologne, please understand that frags smell different from person to person. Testing out on paper strips won’t do much but give you a sense of what the top notes smell like. Always try on fragrances before you buy (if you’re in the position to do so, we all don’t share that convenience). Without further ado, check out these three excellent fragrances.

Chanel Platinum Egoïste: Subtle But Not Selfish

Egoïste Platinum by Chanel is a musky and woody fougère cologne for men. It was launched in 1993 and was created by nose Jacques Polge, who has created over thirty fragrances for Chanel. As expected from Chanel, the cologne comes in a classic and elegant bottle. The top notes are lavender, rosemary, neroli and petitgrain. The heart is galbanum, clary sage, jasmine and geranium. The cologne closes with sandalwood, amber, oakmoss, vetiver and cedar.

Egoïste Platinum is a well-crafted blend of bright and light tones, with warm and rich undertones. The scent is subtle and innocuous. Egoiste Platinum can last from eight to ten hours. It leaves a deep, sensual sillage. It is well suited for the sophisticated young man and can be worn at the office or at night. Egoïste Platinum (and it’s sister fragrance, Egoïste) are particularly loved by women. The “Chanel” name carries an aura of prestige which women are sensible to.

Chanel colognes are high-quality products and are well worth their price; however, high-end stores like Neiman Marcus, Saks or Nordstroms sell them at premium price.

If you’re interested in the Chanel line, some other good ones to check out are Allure Homme/Allure Homme Sport/Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme, Pour Monsieur and the highly popular Bleu de Chanel.

If you can’t try these out in person I’ll also be creating an article on where you can buy some samples for little money. Hopefully you enjoyed this read and I’ll get back to you soon with some more info on some great colognes.

jean paul gaultier le male cologne for men

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male – JPG Le Male is an excellent fragrance for men. The two top notes that really pop on the opening are Mint and Lavendar. The vanilla dry down gives this men’s cologne an all-around warm and unique feeling.It’s hard to get over constantly smelling the aromatic and vanilla accords that JPG gives off. A lady killer for sure, but it is also quite popular so you may not stand out too much. This fragrance was created by nose Francis Kurkdjian in 1995 and is a favorite of many men.

Acqua di Gio – ADG … the big bambino. If you know anything about men’s cologne you would have heard about Acqua Di Gio. Regardless of the love and hate this fragrance gets, you should definitely have it in your arsenal. The citrus and marine accords are dominant in this increasingly popular cologne. A true aquatic fragrance and to many, one of the best smelling colognes of all time. Created by infamous nose Alberto Morillas, this fragrance debuted in 1996 and is still going strong.

Chrome Azzarro – A manly and timeless fragrance, Chrome Azzarro doesn’t disappoint. The top opens with a citrus hit of lemon, bergamot and pineapple. The jasmine and rosemary in the heart notes stand out the most and the dry down smells of a mixture of neroli, lemon, jasmine and cedar. Like the rest in this list, Chrome Azzarro is quite a popular fragrance. Although a versatile scent, it’s best worn during the summer/spring months in the daytime.

gucci guilty best cologne for men

Gucci Guilty – Truly magnetic to the ladies, Gucci Guilty Pour Homme is a very simple aromatic citrusy floral fragrance. There aren’t many notes and they are lavender, African orange flower, Amalfi lemon, Virginia cedar and patchouli. Although a simple composition it is quite provocative and seductive just like the Gucci brand is known for. Very soft sillage with decent longevity, Gucci Guilty is a great smelling cologne that you may want to check out. It is also fairly new, being released in 2011, but it is gaining steam quickly.


Paco Rabanne 1 Million Intense – I had to include this fragrance as some may enjoy the bubblegum and grape scent that this gives off. Some find the super sweet scent cloying while others think it’s divine. Definitely give this one a test to see if it’s suitable for you (works well with the younger crowd). 1 Million intense is actually a less intense version of its predecessor, 1 Million. Although this has warm spicy accords, I found the dry down of the scent to be overly sweet and very feminine.

Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit de l’Homme – YSL does it again with this stunning fragrance. The cardamom and lavender mixes ever so perfectly creating a fragrance that will consistently reel in the compliments. Seriously, if you’ve always wanted to get compliments on your fragrance, look no further. YSL La Nuit will be your go-to. This men’s cologne is best worn during winter nights and is known to make a powerful statement to those around you!

So pretty much you can’t go wrong with any of these men’s fragrances. All of them will drive the ladies crazy and you will be smelling so fresh and so clean clean. Take care!
