Cologne for men: What are the scents to look for?
Traditionally, colognes are worn to inspire passion and heighten attraction. For this reason, especially if it is an older blend, you can expect most colognes to be deeply romantic and sensual, with a heavier fragrance revolving around musk, oud, and warm spices. That said, modern perfume trends have seen a rise in popularity of cologne scents that range from smooth and sophisticated to vibrant, energetic, and fun. As a result, we’re seeing a trend of more and more colognes with citrus, aquatic or green notes. Scents like these are giving the olfactory industry a run for its money, and opening up more creative avenues than ever for men to share and express themselves.
