Welcome to bestmenscolognes.com, your source for information, ratings, and reviews on the best colognes, fragrances, eau de toilettes, perfumes, and parfums for men, women, teenagers, college students, and any occasion. Our goal is to help to match you with the perfect scent whether you plan on wearing it at the office or during a night out on the town. If you’re looking to purchase a fragrance as a gift, we will point you in the right direction and try to assist in  tailoring a great scent for that special someone in your life. Ready to get started? Below, we will cover some basic guidelines to consider when purchasing cologne or perfume.

Selecting the Right Cologne for You

It is important to note that fragrances can change throughout the day, with the passing of time and your own body chemistry.  Cologne and perfume should be considered as fashion accessories and thus be specific to both the place of use and the personality of the individual. Some colognes work great for a night of clubbing but may be overkill for time spent in class or while at work.

Fragrances are comprised of layered scents referred to as notes. The notes are comprised of scents derived from things such as fruits, flowers, and even leather. The combination of these common fragrances will comprise a note, and each bottle will generally contain three layers of notes, that will give the cologne its full scent. So, essentially, what you smell coming out of the bottle may settle to some extent and produce a more refined scent than you had anticipated.

If you have narrowed down a few cologne choices that you might be interested in, then it is time to consider selecting a fragrance that will fit with your lifestyle. A professional would do well to invest in an everyday cologne, one perhaps, that could become a signature scent. A guy who loves the nightlife, should consider a fragrance that is a bit more playful and seductive, one that will attract women but not have them coughing whenever you are near. Some fragrances are also seasonal, not that you couldn’t wear them year round, but the weather can have an effect on how the notes present themselves. For these reasons, it might be prudent to look at purchasing a few bottles of different colognes in smaller sizes, so that you can match whatever circumstance you find yourself in.

How Much Cologne Should I Wear?

Fragrance is best expressed through subtlety. The right scent shouldn’t be permeating the room or be obnoxious.  For this reason, I recommend that two or three sprays should be more than enough to be pleasant but not overbearing. Too many people, leave a trail of terrible cologne in their wake, but with the right fragrance people will enjoy your company instead of being repelled.

Areas of the body where cologne should be used include, the neck, wrists, and chest. Do put cologne or perfume on your clothing as the fabric can be stained and sometimes damaged permanently.


What is the Best Fragrance for Men?

Obviously, there is no clear answer that points to a single cologne being the top choice for men to wear. After all, scent is a subjective experience. What we can do is point to some fantastic fragrances that enjoy a wide approval from those who have used it and from those that have been around others who have worn the cologne. Here are some of the top choices of fantastic smelling men’s colognes:
