Our selection criteria

  • Fragrance
    The scent itself has been considered foremost in preparing this list.
  • Longevity
    We have paid attention to the amount of time a perfume tends to last on average on most users.
  • Sillage
    The range of diffusion or projection of the fragrance in the environment around the wearer is another important criteria for us.
  • Price point
    We have tried to include perfumes from different price ranges to suit all budgets and choices.
  • Popular choice
    We have based our research on the most popular choices of perfume lovers who swear by these scents and are regular users.

Cologne, perfume, eau de toilette – it all comes down to the scent. If a fragrance is unique, subtle and does not make those around you wonder what’s wrong with the guy wearing the obnoxious scent, then you’re off to a very good start. 

In choosing the best scents for this review, the fragrance came first and trumped all other factors, although we considered a variety of others – including longevity, price (many colognes are expensive, so we wanted to include a couple of more affordable ones), and how users feel about it.
