It’s a new year and for many with New Year’s resolutions, it is time to pursue a new version of themselves. One of the easiest ways to change the perception of you as a person is to change your style through clothes, hair, attitude, and yes, even scent. The purpose of this post is to present you with some options amongst the best cologne for men, whether your style is sporty or seductive or a mixture of many. Cologne acts both as a fashion accessory and a statement about your personal style, it is a finishing touch and can be a calling card in ways, both good and bad. Choosing the right cologne for you is an important choice to make, as wearing the wrong scent or wearing too much of it can lead to an unpleasant experience for those around you. And who wants that? I am going to present to you both the top selling colognes and some of the top eau de toilettes of 2014 thus far. All of these scents will be linked out to fragrancex.com, which is a great place to pick up fragrances for both men and women at a significant discount versus retail stores.

1 Million by Paco Rabbane– I love the shape of the bottle, as it looks like a gold ingot, which is pretty cool. However, it is also a great scent, which has stood the test of time. Notes consisting of grapefruit, rose, orange, amber, and leather give this cologne a unique and masculine scent.Current 1.7 oz price: $50.99. Sample vial size available!
Eternity by Calvin Klein– Calvin Klein makes some amazing unisex scents that won’t break the bank but will gather the complements. Eternity is a scent that is split into a men’s cologne and a perfume for women, however. The men’s cologne has a masculine spice to it and works well for daytime or a night out. Current 1 oz price: $23.76
Lagerfeld by Karl Lagerfeld– A throwback scent to the late 1970s, Lagerfeld is a mix of spice and tobacco that is best suited for the nightlife. Current 2 oz price: $26.92
Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana– A great summer scent that is mild and not overpowering like some colognes can be. Simple and clean. Also, there is a sample size available, to give this a trial run for cheap.Current 1.3 oz price: $33.16
Hugo Boss No.6– Hugo Boss makes some nice scents and this one is among the best of this design house. Current 1.6 oz price: $39.79
Burberry Brit– The most popular of the Burberry scents. I actually really like all of their fragrances, London is another great choice. Current 1 oz price: $25.84. Mini size available!
Jean Paul Gaultier– This scent is always pretty popular and always near the top of the list for best sellers. It is warm, sexy, and masculine, which are 3 traits that are never bad to have. Current 2.5 oz price: $46.72. Sample size available!
Acqua di Gio– Probably the best selling cologne, week in and week out. It’s a great scent but so many people wear it. Current 1 oz price: $38.13
Best Perfumes for Women 2014
What are the Best Smelling Colognes for Men?
Creed Aventus (Available at Fragrancenet)– Creed is a brand known for colognes that smell amazing and Aventus is among the best it has to offer. Aventus features notes of black currant, French apples, Italian bergamot, royal pineapple, and Moroccan jasmine. Here is a list of the best Creed fragrances for men.
CK One– Another Calvin Klein scent, which is great for those who are looking for an inexpensive buy and want to smell great. Not a woodsy masculine smell but one that is unisex and very appealing. Current 1.7 oz price: $28.71
Versace Man– Versace Man screams sophistication. It’s clean and fresh, yet won’t be mistaken for a ladies fragrance. Current 3.3 oz price: $48.70
Gucci by Gucci– The Italian design house puts out some of the best fragrances and Gucci is a premier example. A woodsy smell with notes of bergamot, violet, and tobacco. Great scent for getting close. Sample vial size available!
La Nuit De L’Homme– Fairly expensive but well worth the investment. Not too many people are familiar with this cologne from Yves Saint Laurent, so it could easily become your signature scent. Current 2 oz price: $49.99
Burberry Touch– I mentioned how much I like Burberry fragrances above and Touch delivers a clean and uniquely sensual experience. Current 1 oz price: $25. 93
Instinct by David Beckham– From the soccer star’s line of men’s fragrances, Instinct, is the best in my opinion and it is very inexpensive. Current 1.7 oz price: $15.95
Fierce by Abercrombie & Fitch– Not too keen on their clothing but this is an absolutely fantastic cologne that seems to drive many women wild. It is pricey, though, can be utilized for special occasions.
Dirty English by Juicy Couture– Yes, Juicy ventured into men’s fragrances and really hit a home run with this cologne. Mini Size Available!
Givenchy Play Intense– Masculine and smells great, though, it is formulated to be more ‘intense’ than the original Givenchy Play cologne, so go light with it.
Alright, that is going to wrap up this post. There are plenty of great smelling colognes among these choices and though you may not enjoy all of them, there should be at least one that goes perfectly with your day to day life and your own personal style. Try out different scents and see which one’s work well with your body chemistry because different scents react differently depending on the user. This is by no means an exhaustive list but merely suggestions to help you find the right fragrance for you.
