Selecting Men's Cologne

When picking out a men's cologne, individual predilection is not the only rule to go by. Certainly, you should select a fragrance that delights you - and your special someone - but there are a few other matters you want to think about before you decide to buy it. Especially with the cost of men's fragrances reaching an all-time high.

As brought up before, individual taste should always take the lead; however, it's good to experiment at something new or different. What smells good on your best friend or your brother may not smell good on you.

The reason for this is because the ingredients in perfumes interact with your own body's scent to create something a bit different. It's likewise conceivable that you'll have an allergy to some chemical in the cologne.

That's why it's always a good idea to try out the cologne before you buy it. A note of caution though, Do not, as many men are prone to do, put one test fragrance on one wrist and a different one on the other. The scents can mix to produce something delightful - or awful. Either way, it would not give you a true scent to judge. So, be sure to try one scent at a time to be certain you get the full benefit of the test.

Colognes that men prefer are ones that have a woody, outdoor aroma. These include sandalwood or cedar wood bases with a combination of other ingredients, and are refreshing and energizing.

Other scents that men like are those that contain musk and are considered sexy. Men generally stay away from anything that they consider as 'flowery', or what they regard as a more womanly fragrance than a manly one.

The cardinal rule of wearing men's cologne is this: DO NOT SOAK YOURSELF.

You may enjoy the fragrance you have chosen and want to share it with the public, but the public may not have the same enthusiasm for it. People would rather that you come into and depart a room, leaving just a hint of fragrance in the air. Since some cologne tend to get more potent over a period of time, this can be hard to do with some colognes.

So, it is a good idea to use modest quantities of a cologne at first and work up to a degree of scent that is suitable. This is especially important in the business world. Keep in mind that a scent that's suited for a night out with your partner may not be appropriate for the boardroom. This may not be an awful thing, actually, since it gives you an excuse to purchase various fragrances to have on hand for different occasions.

While there are really no hard-and-fast regulations about applying cologne, it is most common to apply them on the neck, just behind the ears, in addition to the interior portions of the wrists and elbows.

A quick trick that many young men are utilising these days is to spray the cologne into the air and walk through the mist, letting it settle on their hair and shoulders.

This works well and helps distribute the fragrance more equally and subtlety - and subtlety, after all, is the name of the game when it comes to wearing men's cologne.
