Men's Cologne: What Is Your Favorite?

Updated on June 19, 2013

It seems cologne for men depends on the personality of the man wearing it to a large extent. It also depends on their profession, in some cases. Of course, it is subjective, but there are some timeless standards you can count on.

Some old standards that have been around for 30+ years or more are Brut, British Sterling, Chanel No. 5, Eternity, Old Spice, Obsession, Canoe, Polo, English Leather, Jovan Musk and Aqua Velva. They must be good because they still are selling!

More recent standards are Calvin Klein CK, Nautica, Gucci, Burberry Brit, Jack Black, Drakkar Noir, Vintage, Odin No. 2, Eternity Aqua, Amen, Sport Code, Big Pony and more.

Some men have a large ensemble of cologne fragrances in their bathroom, others, have some for more special occasions. Still others, simply pick a cologne after shaving and apply it without much thought other than it smells good and women always compliment them on it. Chanel No. 5 for men is such a cologne, despite it being a standard, it still attracts women whenever you wear it. I use to wear it in high school and the girls loved it, they loved Brut also. Brut is probably the most successful less expensive cologne, less than $15. English Leather is another at the low end. Most of the newer colognes are $35-70, including the Chanel cologne. Paying over $100 does not mean the cologne is better, it means you are paying for the name also.

Because it is subjective, it always difficult to determine what cologne's women like the most. So, just please yourself.

      My favorite "over 30" cologne is Polo by Ralph Lauren... A great classic.
