3 Colognes That’ll Make You Smell Like a Man

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:

Moonshine

Moonshine cologne in beautiful wooden box

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.

Royall Lyme

Royall lyme cologne in green bottle

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.

Smell these scents for yourself right here at Binghams in Columbia, Mo. We are located here.

Groom Like a Gentleman with Products from the Art of Shaving, St. James of London and Harry’s Shave System

Impeccable personal style isn’t just about the right clothing—it’s also about the perfect shave. If you want your skin to feel as smooth and supple as your favorite silk tie, you must groom yourself like a true gentleman. But, “how does one groom like a gentleman?” you ask.

Good question. Here’s your answer: use the right products. Not just any disposable razor and $1.99 shaving cream will do. No, sir. You need tools and products that treat your face like you care for your finest suits.

Here are a few high-end men’s grooming lines we suggest (and carry in the store): 

The Art of Shaving

The Art of Shaving offers the largest variety of pre-shave oils and gels, shaving creams, soaps, and aftershaves. They come in several manly scents including sandalwood, lemon, lavender, and of course, the manliest fragrance of all: unscented. All of their products are free from synthetic dyes and alcohol, so they won’t irritate your skin.

St. James of London

St. James of London is like the barrel-aged fine wine of men’s grooming products. Their badger brushes and single-blade razors look as good as they make your skin feel. It seems like your great grandfather was on to something after all…

St. James of London has a full line of creams, oils and aftershaves too, in subtle fragrances like Mandarin & Patchouli, Cedarwood & Clarysage, Sandalwood & Bergamot, Black Pepper & Lime, and Lavender & Geranium. You can also get unscented versions of their products too, but these smell so good that it’d be a shame if you went for plain.

Harry’s

Harry’s makes elegant modern razors that, in their words, “feel like an extension of your hand.” They are designed with ergonomics in mind, for comfort and control. Also, with Harry’s, everything you need comes in one stylish box: a razor, two replacement blades, shaving gel or cream, aftershave and soap. It doesn’t get much easier than this.
