Kempt February 27, 2013 0

The best smelling cologne is one that is masculine, but fresh at the same time, and not too overpowering. What is the best smelling cologne will depend on the man, but there are a few clear standouts for the best smelling mens colognes. We’ve done a review of the best smelling mens colognes on the market and these are the results.

Escape by Calvin Klein for Men Review

This cologne is smells fresh and reminds me a lot of the ocean. It’s sweet in a masculine way without being too musky and is good for everyday use. It’s also very reasonably priced for a designer fragrance and is one of the best smelling mens colognes I’ve come across. The only problem is I found it marked some clothing so make sure you only spray it on your skin!


Pros: Fresh, sweet but masculine, well priced

Cons: Can stain clothing

Eau de Lacoste L12.12 Blanc Cologne by Lacoste for Men Review

This is a best smelling cologne because it is classified as ‘floral-woodsy’, meaning it’s a really unique scent. I found the ladies really love this one, so that’s a plus! It’s quite pricey but the compliments you’ll receive will make it well worth the money!


Pros: Very unique scent

Cons: Slightly pricey

212 Men Cologne by Carolina Herrera for Men Review

This is one the best smelling mens colognes for the summer. It has real staying power, lasting for up to 8 hours with a citrus-y aroma. I found people were constantly asking me what I was wearing (in a good way!) when I would wear this, and I’m sure more than a few have become converts since then. Again, being a designer fragrance it is pretty expensive but you only need to use a little at a time so a bottle should last a while.


Pros: Perfect for summer, long-lasting

Cons: A bit expensive

Cerruti Image Cologne by Nino Cerruti for Men Review

This cologne is a little off the beaten track, but don’t let that put you off! It’s definitely one of the best smelling mens colognes available and is cost effective. It suits a broad age range and even though it’s simple and light, it’s maintains an air of masculinity. The only problem I found was that it doesn’t last as long as I would normally like.


Pros: Suits a range of ages, cost effective, simple yet masculine

Cons: Doesn’t have the same staying power as other colognes

Pleasures Eau de Toilette for Men by Estée Lauder Review

Great for all seasons, wearing this cologne will get you compliments from men and women alike. This is definitely a best smelling cologne since it’s not too musky or strong, and each bottle will last you at least a few months. But be aware that this is definitely a daytime scent!


Pros: suitable for all seasons, not too strong

Cons: day-time only

So what is the best smelling mens cologne?

The best smelling mens colognes on the man, but as you can see, they’re not created equal so choose wisely! Choose a scent that makes you feel strong and masculine, and wait for the compliments to start rolling in!
