How Do I Choose The Right Cologne?

  • Composition: What elements make up the scent? Is the blend unique? Are any of the ingredients rare or expensive?
  • Release Year: Like wines, fragrances go through yearly variations. They also change with fashion trends. Something that’s ‘in’ one decade may be outdated the next. On the other hand, a scent that stands the test of time is a vintage treasure.
  • Oil Content: This determines how long your cologne lasts. More oil means a stronger and longer-lasting scent. It also means you need to be careful not to overdo the application.
  • Strength: Not to be confused with the above, ‘strength’ refers to how far the scent travels. A stronger fragrance will be perceptible several steps away, while a milder one will only be noticed by someone up-close-and-personal.
