When it comes to fashion and style it’s all about the details. Details not just in how you look, but also in how you smell. Think about fresh baked cookies. Yes, we definitely love how they look and taste; however the real allure lies in the aroma given off while baking. Cologne is such a vital part of completing any man’s look whether you are spending the morning at the office or an evening on the town. Today’s stylish man should have no less than 5 types of cologne in his collection at all times. 1020470_fpx.tifYou’ll want to have a fragrance for spring/summer day & night, fall/winter day & night, and special occasion bottle. When building your assortment here are a few things to think about. For the spring/summer day scent opt for fresh, citrus, and clean like Jo Malone Grapefruit. As you enjoy the summer evenings step up the masculine factor and dab a little Eternity on.

Very few fragrance bands have the ability to make the outdoors smell so damn sexy the way Gucci does. Riding on the heels of the wildly successful Pour Homme, Gucci Pour Homme II will make you fall in love all over again.

Van Cleef & Arpels Cologne de Noire is the perfect statement making scent, composed of ginger, cardamom, and bitter orange. Remember, you don’t want to treat it like a body spray as even the best scent can become too overbearing. Never spray it directly on your clothes. All it takes is one spray on each wrist and then using your wrist dab behind your ears and you are all set.Van-Cleef-Arpels-Exclusive-Cologne-Noire-Eau-de-Parfum
