Selecting a New Cologne

When out shopping for a new scent, remember that a fragrance works uniquely with the body's chemistry - so, keep the following tips in mind:

  • When buying as a gift - start with the smallest bottle
  • Let the cologne sit on your skin for at least 20 minutes to an hour before deciding
  • Test scents before eating
  • Avoid shopping when you feel ill or are recovering from a sickness
  • Bring along a friend to offer a different nose opinion
  • Don't try too many scents at one time - the best rule of thumb is to try four fragrances that you like best straight from the bottle - one on each wrist and the other two on your inner elbow.
