12 Colognes Your Boyfriend Will Love

One of the best gifts you can gift your boyfriend is cologne. Many people might disagree but personally, I think its great. You can choose what he smells like and you can ensure that you will like the way he smells. What’s better than that? 

One of the strongest scenes tied to memory is our scent. It can be a very personal thing. Different scents can bring us past memories because of how nostalgic they are. 

There are tons of people out there that will say buying cologne for your significant other is a bad gift. However, this doesn’t have to be for a birthday or holiday. Maybe you want to surprise your boyfriend with a little something or maybe you just don’t like his current cologne, whatever the case, these are perfect for your boyfriend. 

There are a bunch of colognes and after a while, they tend to all smell the same. There are different ways to approach buying a scent for somebody else. First off, make sure you enjoy the smell. Cologne can last a long time in my opinion. I’ll give myself a few spritz of my YSL perfume, and in just an hour the smell seems to evaporate. A man can just walk past me and I can already tell he has cologne on.
If you don’t enjoy the smell, chances are you won’t want to be around your man that often. Pick some that will embody his personality. Take into consideration the age range as well. For the younger generations, Hollister or Polo are great choices. For the more mature men, something by Tom Ford or Dolce & Gabbana are great choices.

Another thing to take into consideration the scent they currently wear. If it is more musky, don’t purchase one that has a blood orange and citrus note. Or if it’s on the lighter side, don’t pick a cologne thats over powering. If they are wearing it every day, chances are they like the current one they have. If you want to upgrade it, keep in mind the type of smell your man likes. 

Don’t be scared buying your boyfriend a cologne. He knows the reason you bought it is because you loved the smell so he will too. Especially with these ones. These 12 colognes are perfect for your man and he is guaranteed to love them.
