Our Top Picks Mens Cologne 2020
For me choosing a new cologne is more than just a shopping trip it's a mystical experience! I love the shapes and styles of the fragrance bottles, some are works of art that I would buy without even smelling the contents. I proudly arrange every bottle of cologne I've ever bought on my bathroom shelve "shrine" much to my wife's dismay as her perfumes are simply thrown into a bedside drawer.
And yes you do need a cologne for every occasion! This is an argument I've had many times before with guys who think aftershave is a one scent suits any occasion well it's no you change your clothes everyday don't you?. We want light and floral during the day and rich and musky on an evening “obviously”
What's the difference between Aftershave, Cologne & Eau De Toilette.
Well, there all the same thing aren't they? Not entirely its all to do with the amount of perfume oil they contain which determines how long the scent lasts for on the skin the higher the fragrance oil content the longer they linger.
1-3% oil concentrate usually contains aloe vera to soothe razor burn, the fragrance lasts 1-2 hours.
2-5% fragrance usally lasts between 2-4 hours. Tends to be more floral day time scents.
Eau de Toilette:
5-15% fragrance highest concentrate and lasts anything upto 6 hours.
