How to Choose the Best Cologne

Fragrance: If your first impression of the fragrance is not a positive one, it is better to go on to another item. Normally fragrance changes somehow when used, but the initial and subtle scents will always be there and may get better. There are some differences between the casual and daytime cologne and another one that is heavier and must be worn on your special evenings. If the person wearing them uses a scent every day, a less heavy cologne is a better option particularly for the office and close quarters environments.

Packaging: If the fragrance is created to be displayed, the attractive bottles will be more valued by the potential customers. Men’s fragrances typically are packed in simple tones of black, gold, tan or brownish colors but for a younger guy, a fun style in lemon yellow or brighter red colors works very well. Cool shades such as greens and blues normally entice any age client. Vibrant bottles in stylish or classy shapes like modern triangles or irregular geometrics are noticed at the cologne shops and look great on shelves.

Overall Interest: Colognes vary depending on the overall tone with some items reflecting periodic features. A musky and more intense fragrance with woodsy scent is a good choice for winter while the memory of a sea wind is valued during the summer time. Many types of cologne go with an elegant fragrance for women and some kinds of perfumes are created as unisex items.

Although selecting fragrance becomes an individual choice, there are three basic elements to consider for everyone buying it for a friend. The first factor should always consist of a “sniff” analyze followed by its application, if possible, to observe how the perfume goes on the whole body.

Next in line is relating to a design and elegance to match individual characteristics.

The final considerations, other than cost, move around the overall benefit of the perfume, such as packaging.

With the choice of traditional perfumes and the option of new colognes arriving on the fashion markets, every man can appreciate an exclusive scent perfectly suited for their way of life and individual preferences.
