A Simple Review of 20 Top Cologne for Men

Fragrances are a vital part of our daily lives. Smelling nice is good business. It’s no longer good enough to just look good, you need to smell good too. The chemistry begin the numerous scents could be worth noting, only by someone who is science inclined or for those who care about it. One thing is certain, producers like Armani, Paco Rabanne, Nautica have employed the biggest brains in the industry to develop natural chemicals and synthetic derivatives to arrive at jaw dropping cologne for men and women.

After careful and detailed observations, empirical analysis and research we have come up with a review of some of the best mens cologne.

Acqua Di Gio Cologne for Men

This cologne product by Giorgio Amani has to be the best for me so far in online stores. There have been reports of a fake distribution but I think that has been sorted out now. So look to buy it directly from large retail online stores rather than from third party sellers. The aroma, Amani claims, seems to be crafted from a nice blend of bitter citrus, aromatic nuance of rosemary intertwining with salty sea naunace and hedione. The fragrance of the real Gio does last long, more than 8 hours of aromatic scent.

Paco Rabanne 1 Million Eau de Toilette Spray for Men

In second place for me is the Paco Rabanne spray that cost $58.87 for 3.4 ounce. I particularly love the rectangular shaped bottle and the Gold tone fragrance casing. It’s a recommended evening scent for late night outs. The Vodka themed scent mixes powerfully with sharp mint, passion fruit and caviar, the perfect fragrance gift this holiday season for men. Developed by a team of fragrance enthusiast, Rabanne 1 million features notes of grape fruit, rose, mint , white woods, patchouli and amber. The scent is strong enough to last the whole day, two sprays and that’s all you will need. Thus we expect a 3.4 ounce bottle to last a long time. You can even do a research on the bottle and determine when the frag was made so you can be rest assured it hasn’t been damaged by storage.

Polo by Ralph Lauren for Men, Eau de Toilette Natural Spray

This list won’t be complete without a Cologne product from Ralph Lauren. For fans of Polo, this fragrance comes in third place. With a strong masculine scent the spray is crafted from leather wood tobacco, oakmoss and basil. The wave of fake reviews seems to have been taken care of by Amazon. Just be sure you get the cologne directly from Amazon and try it on just to make sure you got the real deal.

BURBERRY Touch for Men Eau de Toilette

Burberry made in France is one Cologne of a kind. Its frag is fashioned from an innovative blend of notes providing the much needed depth of a great cologne product. If you haven’t tried this cologne before just give it a try. I trust it will become one of your favorites. For those who care to know, the aroma notes are Artemisia, mandarin tree, aqueous violet leaves, nutmeg etc. How all these are combined to come up with a product so good that beats my imagination.

Hermès Men’s Terre d’Hermès Eau de Toilette Spray

In 7th place is Eau de Toilette cologne by Hermes. The fragrance can be described as woody, spicy and very pleasant. It opens with a very strong aromatic citrus note but soon soothes off to an earthly wooden aroma accompanied by a hint of patchouli. One thing I like about modern cologne is the softness they present. They are not too overpowering and last longer and for a mid- price of $63.00 this cologne is yours for the keeping.

Lacoste Style in Play Eau de Toilette for Men

Lastly on the list is Lacoste Style in play cologne. That it comes 10th doesn’t make it any lesser than the top brand product mentioned above. The scent of this product can stand head to head with the most popular brand from Gio. I personally would rather wear this scent that smells equally good than put on an  Acqua Di Gio cologne that’s way too popular. Lacoste play has a long lasting scent, not overpowering and can be felt although the day.

Note: There have been rumors of the Lacoste play been discontinued. So you won’t easily find it in department stores. Get your hands on this baby before it’s gone.
