Top Cologne Brands for Men

Tuesday, May 11, 2021

Gentleman, no matter your kind of job and whatever your hands find doing, you shouldn’t sleep on smelling as nice as you can. As a man, you are expected to put on the best of your ‘A-game’ when it comes to looking good, either casually or professionally. You shouldn’t slack in the area of smelling nice as well, even if it is not for the ladies, but at least for nice compliments from people. However, it is understandable that choosing a particular one to wear can be quite challenging, whether you are a loyalist or an explorer.



This article helps you explore different top cologne brand options for men but first, let’s learn about cologne generally. Check also Menblend.com, which offers a lot of advice and information about men's fashion and style. 


Divisions of Fragrances


Fragrances specifically designed to be worn are mostly divided into three categories: ‘fugiere’ or ‘fresh’, ‘woody’, ‘oriental’ or ‘spicy’, and ‘floral’. There are also divisions into notes.


  •  Top notes are the first smell you come across and dispel when you first make the spray.
  • Heart notes are the smells that come after top notes.
  •  Base notes are the smells that you carry around, the smell that lingers the most on your skin and clothes after spraying.

You should also know that colognes are also categorized based on how strong they can be perceived:


  •  Eau de cologne is the lightest fragrance
  •  Eau de toilette is quite stronger than eau de cologne
  •  Eau de perfume is the strongest one and usually lasts longer than the first two.

Hey! It is alright if you do not know about all that before now. However, you do not even need all that to wear cologne. But knowing these categorizations help you shuffle, narrow and, make your choices. It might sound funny, but the best way to make your cologne choice is by your nose. But if you are looking to change your collection or add to it, you can make your pick from these top cologne brands we’ve put together for you.
