You’re always going to have problems finding good men’s cologne as a man if you’re looking for the type of smell that you like. The main reason behind this being that you should instead focus on finding the type of fragrance that women like, the type of masculine scent only a woman would be drawn to.
After taking into consideration everything the market has to offer in that regard, we put together a list of all the best men’s cologne money can buy. So without further ado, here are the ten best men’s cologne choices out there.
10Bvlgari Man in Black Eau de Parfum Spray for Men
The first thing you notice about this peculiar fragrance is how much it resembles pipe tobacco smell as far as its scent goes. After it dries down, however, the fragrance becomes much softer and easy to wear, without drawing too much unnecessary attention to yourself from across the room. This being said, let us point out that this fragrance does indeed last for a very long time after being applied.
9John Varvatos Artisan Eau de Toilette Spray
This timeless masculine scent with a citrus twist is definitely up there with the very best. Behind its great fragrance stands a citrus explosion of Silician clementines and juicy tangelos along with woody, musk notes for a smooth finish. Furthermore, the cologne’s flask is encased in handwoven rattan, a design which doesn’t just make the cologne more stylish to look at but sturdier as well.
8Polo Black by Ralph Lauren for Men
Given its woody aromatic fragrance, this particular cologne from Ralph Lauren is definitely one of the most subtle yet long-lasting colognes out there. Launched more than ten years ago, this fragrance has become one of the most popular in the world and understandably so. Strong when first applied, this fragrance may lose some of its scent throughout the day, but it will never lose its sweet-smelling perfume.
7Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit De L’homme Eau de Toilette Spray
What makes this cologne stand out is the combination of freshness, tone, and comfort that make it one of the best colognes you can get. Specially formulated to provide long-lasting effects without being too obvious in any way, this has to be considered one of the most subtle fragrances out there. As for its scent, let us point out that it uses notes of Cardamom, Cedar, and Coumarin to give out a bright, masculine freshness.
6Dolce and Gabbana The One EDT for Men
Unlike some other men’s colognes out there, this one offers a light, elegant, and rich smell that will last you throughout the day.

4Paco Rabanne Invictus Eau de Toilette Spray for Men
Paco Rabanne’s Invictus cologne is fresh, sweet, and impressively long-lasting.

Speaking of which, this fragrance will not affect the fabric of your clothes in any particular way.

This peculiar fragrance from Versace offers a perfect harmony of sweet and salty notes of sea water and nuances of sunny warmth for good measure. In this respect, it is perhaps one of the most exquisite fragrances out there, at least in terms of long-lasting effect. Also worth mentioning is that although it may appear that this fragrance is a bit more expensive than most, it will certainly make it up through its concentrated formula.
2MONTBLANC Legend Eau de Toilette
With this exquisite fragrance from Montblanc, you get a pleasant scent that involves bergamot, lavender, pineapple leaf, and exotic verbena. Along with the oak moss note merged with geranium, this formula makes the scent stronger and long-lasting. Speaking of its formula, it should be said that its base contains sandalwood, Tonka, and evernyl, a combination that gives the cologne a pleasant, virtuous scent.
1Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio Eau De Toilette Spray for Men
Giorgio Armani’s Acqua Di Gio is without a doubt, one of the most exquisite fragrances for men ever released. It includes Orange, Lime, Mandarin Orange, Jasmine, Bergamot, Lemon, and Neroli notes, all blended in a unique formula that aims to provide a long-lasting, sweet yet masculine scent that will follow you around throughout the day. Furthermore, its bitter citrus -based formula also contains sharp notes of spices that have been softened by a woody base in order to give the cologne a musky trail.
