Men’s Guide to Buying Colognes
When it comes to perfumes, price is the most important factor to consider. Designer brands like Tom Ford and Gucci often charge between $100 and $150 for their best perfume. Calvin Klein and Dior offer mid-range alternatives that cost around $100. Many fragrances exist in more affordable smaller quantities, even if you don’t want to spend more than $100. Choose the 1.70 oz bottle over the 3.40 oz bottle if you want to save money or try a new fragrance.
There is also a wide range of fragrance families to choose from, such as woody, oriental, herbal, floral and earthy. Floral fragrances are recommended for all seasons, while herbaceous fragrances are perfect for summer. During the winter, woody and oriental fragrances are often preferred. Woody fragrances such as cedar, sandalwood and madras wood are particularly popular in 2022, and these scents are now available year-round. Many perfumes and grooming items now include traditional masculine scents such as tobacco, leather and even bourbon. It’s all about personal choice when it comes to choosing the best fragrance for guys, whether for yourself or your lover.
