Cologne 101: How To Smell Like The Best Version Of Yourself

Photo by Jennifer Ryan Jones

Smelling good matters. And when it comes to your personal style, the cologne you wear is just as important as the clothes you put on your back. If you’ve built a fragrance wardrobe or rock a signature scent, then you already know how it finishes your look. But for cologne newbies, getting started can be intimidating. “Let’s walk through the department store getting perfume bombed,” said no man ever. So here are a few simple tips for smelling scentsational and wearing cologne.

Keep It Tasteful

Like a great meal, the best men's colognes are made from a unique blend of unique ingredients or notes in the case of fragrances. A delicious scent has top notes that hit you first giving way to the middle notes that provide the personality of the overall olfactory experience. And the base notes bring the staying power. You don’t have to order the most expensive dish on the menu or pay $500. for a celebrity endorsed bottle of Eau de toilet to have a gourmet experience. Of course, we're partial to Our Best Smeller Cologne. The juice is warm and spicy with sweet citrus notes of Italian Bergamot, masculine Leather and creamy Vanilla with a kick of energizing Black Pepper at the heart.

Keep It In The Family

Keeping up with your good looks and practicing proper hygiene requires a plethora of grooming products. Think about it. Your cleanser, deodorant, and shaving cream all smell differently. And that results in a lot of competing scents mixing around on your skin. When you can, layer your favorite fragrance with it’s complimenting deodorant and body wash to boost the experience.

Don’t Over Do It

There is nothing worse than walking into a wall of cheap cologne. When it comes to smelling really good, the right amount of spritz is as crucial as picking the perfect fragrance. Less is more. No, you shouldn’t spray it into the air and walk through the cologne mist. And please skip pointing it down your pants as well. Simply apply to one of the warmer parts of the body like your wrist, shoulder, inside elbow, neck or chest.  And most importantly don’t let the fragrance wear you. Make scents?
