10 Best Cologne for Men
Fragrance Reviews – Cologne (which is fully known as Eau de cologne) is a great choice if you want something extremely fresh and light that you can use in more than a couple of places. Usually they have about 5 percent fragrance oil in them. This means that some overlap with Eau de Toilette and will not last very long. The lightness of it makes it more suitable to spray more liberally. Cologne is the most advisable version to use day to day, as it is less intense. And even if you do use too much it will lighten up fairly quickly. Usually the difference is either that the scent is gendered or that the cologne has lots of citrus notes. Since that’s historically part of the cologne recipe and the meaning is still sort of there. Here are a review of the top rated Cologne for men in Amazon.
Happy By Clinique Cologne
First there was Clinique Happy. A hint of citrus, a wealth of flowers. A mix of emotions. Now, introducing Clinique Happy Cologne for Men. Wear it and be happy. Top notes are lime, green notes, mandarin orange, lemon and sea notes; middle notes are freesia, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley and rose; base notes are cypress, musk, guaiac wood and cedar.
“Happy” will make you happy! This cologne is really a nice citrus comfort scent if you like fruity smells. Orangey, citrus-like, sweet, fresh, a bit woody, light, simple, youthful, and non-offensive. It has a lot of brightness and keeps away from the soapy clean chemical smells which are prevalent among fresh scents.
Happy Cologne starts with synthetic orange, mandarin, yuzu and a touch of green notes. But quickly transforms into sweet, fruity, and woody kind of smell, with a hint of cedar and a bit of guiacwood or rosewood. This cologne is uncomplicated and easy to wear, but also very comforting and nice, a good compliment getter. Clinique is honestly a pretty good scent house and puts good quality in their products, and really gives a nice smell that is not too overpowering compared to many other frags.
Happy Cologne is a perfect gift for those who are not usual cologne wearers. It is a fresh, welcoming smell that anybody would like to wear.
Tommy Hilfinger Cologne
Since its introduction by Tommy Hilfiger in 1995, Tommy Hilfiger cologne for men has been turning women’s heads. The natural and unique blend of cranberry and cinnamon apple pie combined with tangy citrus is hard to resist. Meant for daytime wear, this is the perfect fragrance to accompany a casual ensemble. Spray it on your chest or neck before venturing out to the lake or park. This cologne is sure to become one of your favorites for days out with friends. Top notes are mint, lavender, grapefruit and bergamot; middle notes are cranberry, rose and granny smith apple; base notes are amber, cactus and cotton flower.
Tommy Hilfiger cologne is such a lovely fragrance. This cologne never gets old! It’s fresh, green, clean, young, a little sweet fruity and nostalgic. A cologne that makes everyone happy, unpretentious and confident. This is a pleasant scent, opening with citrus, floral and spearmint. It doesn’t take long for the apple and cranberry notes to arrive giving it an almost apple crumble like smell. It stays like this for about 5 hours before becoming very faint then eventually disappearing completely.
Tommy Hilfiger cologne is a good go to for any situation. I would compare it to that one nice pair of jeans that you wear all the time because they fit almost any occasion and you feel comfortable and confident in them. This is pretty much a summer cologne, which has some citrus and almost cinnamon apple pie like smells. Overall a very nice cologne, fresh sporty scent with great price, also with average longevity and projection. I would recommend as a blind buy.

One of the best smelling fragrances of all time. Curve for Men has a spicy, woody, magnetic scent you can wear every day. A masculine blend of woody notes and other exhilarating scents, Curve is ideal for the active man who likes to take risks and celebrate all of life’s possibilities. The scent overall is pretty good. The pineapple and lavender are both very distinguishable in the beginning, and it dries down into a nice, pleasant, musky-woody type of scent. This is very masculine, albeit slightly synthetic smelling, nonetheless still pleasant. Overall, I’d say this is pretty simplistic, safe, and enjoyable, hence why this is so popular with the high-schoolers.
Lastly, Curve has something that makes it timeless, elegant,mesmerizing and yet uniquely different on different people. It is recommended for daytime wear, and literally crack in a bottle because it is addicting to all those who smell it.
Old Spice Classic Cologne
If your grandfather hadn’t worn it, you wouldn’t exist.

Top notes are nutmeg, lemon, orange, star anise and aldehydes; middle notes are carnation, jasmine, geranium, cinnamon, heliotrope and pimento; base notes are ambergris, benzoin, cedar, vanilla, tonka bean and musk.
It is truly a classic all-time great fragrance for anyone. Spicy, clean, and warm. An excellent mix of powdery florals, mixed with heavy doses of oriental spices. Old Spice is one of the truly legendary creations that transcend even its own ubiquity in every conceivable type of retailer/store possible. This is a much diversified range of spicy, this is somewhat feminine in its floral flightiness, but this also has a layer of sweetness that makes Old Spice simple but complicated, old-fashioned but rather timeless. It’s an interesting combination of classic rum & citrus splash-ons from the early era of men’s fragrances with a more sophisticated blending of both warm and fresh spicy elements that gives Old Spice its original bite.
It’s very strong, long-lasting, deep, and high quality. It smells musty and cheap, with no redeeming qualities at all…for the price, you simply cannot beat it.

The smell is very fresh and reminds of a more sophisticated and sexier Abercrombie & Fitch Fierce. The open is a fresh, creamy, fruity, and patchouli combo. It’s a sharp, strong scent, but it’s not intruding. The scent lasts pretty long, but there are definitely longer lasting scents out there. This cologne seems to fade in less than an 2 hours. The sillage is not that strong, but that’s still good. This is a cologne for an older audience, and a real deal at an amazing price, good price for this size bottle.

It turns into a crisp combination of juniper berries and pine as it dries down. There is also musk mixed in with the bottom notes.
It’s completely masculine, a projection lord, and has the strange effect of not smelling like a cologne. It smells like a natural body smell, but in a sexy way. It just has this real magic quality to it, like it smells so different when you smell it on another person, and it turns them into a testosterone filled man. This cologne is perfect for spring and fall. Could be heavy in very hot days, especially at the first two hours, but you can use it for clubbing. Fierce Cologne has a very masculine, sexy smell that is more mature than the packaging leads on. You might be surprised! Buy it, you won’t be disappointed.

Patrick Cologne is a rich and daring scent with fresh green notes of fern and pine, warmed with the woody notes of oak moss and patchouli. The bottle and box design features a design based on one of the greatest examples of Celtic Art – the Book of Kells – rich in texture and symbolizing the leather bound cover of the great book. Patrick is named in honor of Ireland’s patron saint who arrived on Irish shores in the 4th century A.D. The fragrance is inspired by his journeys across the length and breath of the island, across the vast native forests that blanketed the landscape, the rich green pastures and rocky coasts.
This fragrance opens clean, green and fresh with a lemon zest. It reminds of a lot of different scents having a hint of each. It has the green feel of Paco Rabanne Pour Homme, the slight soapiness of Irish Spring Soap, a dash of citrus from Original Vetiver and the lemon zest of Original Lacoste scent.
The projection of Patrick Cologne is decent, and the longevity is pretty good. This is a great scent from the fall all the way to the spring for me. Overall Patrick Cologne is a very good fragrance, well worth the good price.
