Grooming Picks: Best Men’s Cologne

Your smell or scent is important. It’s extremely vital and it’s one of the grooming basics along with hair, nails, and teeth (check out the article from earlier this month about grooming basics). You should always smell good, unless you just finished practicing a sport, building something, or working out- even then you should quickly shower and dabb on a nice scent.

The best way to choose a cologne is to go into a mall and try on different scents. This is the best way because colognes smell differently on different people- and it’s important to know if the cologne mixes well with your body scent. If you don’t have time to go into the store and pick out one or if you’re buying cologne as a gift, I’m going to make it easier for you. . .

List of the Best Men’s Colognes:

- Unforgivable by. Sean John
*This is surprisingly my top pick. For some reason it’s a cologne that I automatically wanted to not like. But every other time that I compliment a man on his cologne he says it’s “Unforgivable”. . . that risqué ad that Diddy has seems to hold truth.

- Dolce & Gabbanna
[Classic D&G, The One, Light Blue]

- Burberry:
Burberry Brit for a bold smell
Burberry Summer for a lighter smell.

- Must de Cartier Pour Homme

Men with a “taste for expensive things” seem to fancy this cologne.


- Issey Miyake
*This another one that I seem to compliment, but this only smells good on certain men. It’s very important to only lightly use this cologne b/c it can easily become overwhelming.


- Creed
Some men swear by this cologne, they say it really attracts women.

Common, Popular, & Classic Colognes
These colognes always seem to make the list of best colognes. I don’t personally like them all (some are too bold), but as a whole they are good choices.
1. Aqua de Gio Armani
2. Aqva Bvlgari
3. Cool Waters by Davidoff
4. Hugo by Hugo Boss
5. PI by Givenchy
6. Calvin Klein: Euphoria & Eternity Summer

BEST place to smell/test cologne: Nordstrom – they have the best collection of high-end colognes and they have the most helpful attendants.

BEST place to buy cologne: Macys – they always have sales, and they almost always give away extra gifts with their cologne purchases

BEST online store to buy cologne: eBay – they have almost every fragrance for the lowest price on the internet.

*Tip: In between smelling colognes make sure you smell coffee beans. Why? Because coffee refreshes your sense of smell. Most high-end stores, like Nordstrom, will have small glasses full of coffee beans next to the colognes.

After all these years, it’s finally here. . . The List- not just any list, but the list of the best places to buy graphic tees. Now some of you may say “Wait! I can buy them anywhere”, well yes, that is true, but for some reason I am constantly asked the question “Where should I buy my graphic t-shirts?” so here it is:

First off, every store has graphic tees now- the basics: Old Navy & Urban Outfitters. But I have searched the internet far and wide to discover the best places for particular graphic tees at a pretty decent price:

Best Prices: Heritage 1981
(http://www.forever21.com/heritage1981/mens/)
This is my number 1 pick, they have unique modern tees for around $16. (Heritage 1981 is sort of like the male version of forever 21)


Best Rock Tees: BlueBaldur.com

This website has very orginial looking rock star tees. The designs are really creative and edgy, and they seem to always have sales.


Best Phrases: Tshirthub.com
and Snorgtees.com

T-Shirt Hub has really funny t-shirts with phrase like “Save me JEBUS” and they’re only $10.
Snorg Tees are well known for their weekly new funny t-shirts. Prices are usually around $17


Most Authentic 80′s Tees: 80stees.com
This website is perfect for anyone wanting to get a 80′s t-shirt, you know a shirt that has RUN DMC or even a Fred Sanford or Rolling Stones throwback.


Best Musical Tees: Djtees.com
From Soul to Funk to 50s Rock & Guitar Stars, this site really does have stellar ass t-shirts. (prices are in british pound)


Best Political Tees: Barackawear.com

This is the original Barack Obama t-shirt and my personal favorite. There are millions of websites that have Obama t-shirts, but this is the t-shirt that all the stars wear and the most authentic “Barack shirt”.

Okay, I hope that list is helpful. . . peruse these websites and I’ll add more to the list later.
