Having the best smelling colognes are essential to complete your wardrobe. Regardless if you are just going to class, a job interview or out with friends, how you smell is part of the way you present yourself to the world. Taking a few seconds to include a few sprays of cologne as part of your morning routine can make all the difference. Here are seven colognes that will make sure you are smelling fresh as you head out the door.
Versace Eros Eau de Toilette
Versace is a globally recognized brand in fashion, so you will be sure to be smelling expensive with the scent of Eros. Named after the Greek God of passionate and physical love, this is one of the best colognes if you are looking to express your passion in a job interview or important meeting. The cologne itself contains a minty citrus smell of green apple and lemon with underlying hints of geranium and vanilla among other pleasant smells. The cologne is part of the Eros collection which includes an aftershave and deodorant to cover all your grooming bases. For an extra touch of passion, the Eros Flame cologne takes it to another level with more of a spicy and wood-like scent. These colognes come in incredibly detailed red and blue bottles in 1.7 and 3.4 ounces.
Hermes Concentre D’Orange Verte
Having a cologne with a citrus scent will guarantee you smell energetic and ready to handle whatever is thrown at you. The Hermes Concentre D’Orange cologne will make you smell like you just returned from a tropical vacation. This cologne partially gets its name from the orange scent but also contains warm wood-like notes that give a sense of warmth. The patchouli notes will make sure the scent is present no matter what. This means that a small spray will go a long way. The bright orange box it comes in will instantly make it stand out from the rest and the teal bottle comes in a 6.7-ounce bottle which means it will last well beyond the summer season.
Just like the spokesperson for this cologne Johnny Depp, Dior Sauvage is extremely versatile. It contains a scent that does not follow rules and is undeniably one of the most unique colognes to choose from. Dior Sauvage contains notes of mandarin but is also combined with a zestiness and smokiness that comes from Virginian cedar and sandalwood. When combined, it is a scent that is powerful and certain to leave an impression no matter the occasion. This cologne is part of the Dior Sauvage collection and comes in sizes ranging from 2 to 6.8 ounces with a transparent black and navy bottle like the desert sunset it seeks to capture.
Maison Martin Margiela Replica Jazz Club
If a name means anything, this cologne is the definition of class. The Maison Martin Margiela Replica Jazz Club is one that seeks to impress while still keeping it simple. Everything about this cologne is reminiscent of the Gatsby era of the roaring twenties, hence the name. The golden brass bottle of this cologne would fit perfectly within an underground jazz club. The label includes the fragrance description, letting you know what you are in for as well as the provenance and period which is Brooklyn, 2013. The combination of ready cocktails and cigars make for the perfect scent for a night out on the town or an intimate date night. This cologne also contains musky hints of vanilla bean and lemon offering a sense of sweetness. Replica Jazz Club comes in a 3.4-ounce bottle or travel size to take the smell of Brooklyn with you anywhere.
This fragrance might be more subtle, but it still maintains an elevated sense of style and class. Armani’s Code cologne is one that is definitely cool with a wood-like quality to it. It gets its fragrance thanks to the tonka bean which is somehow able to be sweet and spicy at the same time. This vital ingredient gives the cologne a sense of warmth and brings out the earthy tone. Armani Code also has a citrus-like sweetness from the bergamot fruit. Its subtlety is impossible to ignore and will be sure to make an impression the next time you walk into class or hang out with friends. This scent also pairs well with a monochromatic outfit especially in the winter with layers galore. Armani Code comes in a 1.7 standard size bottle that is a dark almost black shade of navy blue.
Yves Saint-Laurent La Nuit de l’Homme
Translated from French, the night of the man sounds like the ideal fragrance for someone who is out on the town looking for a good time. Leave it to YSL to create colognes that combine sophistication with boldness as this is one of the many examples of irresistible scents. La Nuit de ‘Homme achieves its sophisticated scent from looking towards the earth and its natural spices. The cologne contains hints of cardamom, cedarwood, and coumarin. These natural spices are elevated with the bright floral hints of lavender and liveliness of bergamot. The monochromatic gradient bottle adds to the sophistication of this cologne. Give a spray on your favorite leather jacket and you will be good to go.
Mugler Come Together
Mugler’s unisex colognes will automatically grab your attention for their brightly vibrant colors and clever names like “Take Me Out” and “Love You All”. It’s this very visual appeal of the rainbow-colored collection that makes these colognes the ideal ones for scents that are intense and bold. However, Come Together is the one that stands out amongst the rest for its sensual nature. The bright lime green color of the cologne is amplified from petitgrain, an essential oil that contains a citrus-like sweetness within it. As you can tell from the color, this is a scent that is intense and explosive in the most pleasurable way possible. The bottle has a curvy shape to it and comes in a 3.3-ounce size. A few sprays of this cologne will be sure to make everyone come together around you.
