Cologne is tricky for guys. Dudes want to smell nice, but not like a bouquet of fresh-cut roses, or worse, overly perfumed man-meat. Here are three colognes that will keep you smelling fresh and manly:
Does a cologne name get more masculine than “Moonshine?” Probably not. But don’t worry, this won’t make you smell like something brewed in a bathtub. Moonshine has a woodsy aroma with hints of spice, including notes of black pepper, tobacco, leather, gin, and patchouli.
This vintage style cologne captures the essence of colonial Victorian gentleman. Its combination of Indian Royall limes (“lyme” is the old English spelling) and essential oils creates a clean, zesty scent that is very subtle (just like a gentleman should be).
St. James of London
St. James of London is like the barrel-aged fine wine of men’s grooming products, and this goes for their cologne as well. It comes in five manly fragrances: black pepper & lime, sandalwood & bergamot, lavender & geranium (perhaps not as manly but it’s subtle, we promise), cedarwood & clarysage, and mandarin & patchouli.
See, cologne doesn’t stink.
