Recommendations for Spring colognes
The air is lighter, the weather is warmer and the sun is beginning to make its presence felt. It’s officially spring time! Time to crawl out of your winter nests and witness the word come alive, once again.
Spring is the season of new life, of new beginnings. And what a better way to enjoy what this wonderful season has to offer than to smell like it. That’s right; the change of season also means shedding off those heavy, musky winter fragrances and colognes. It’s spring so we need to smell airy and fruity—the kind of scent that makes us feel fresh all day.
Below are some of the best spring colognes and fragrances for men:
Cool Water Cologne by Davidoff
It might be called ‘water’ but this cologne is as cool as ice. Launched in 1988 by the design house of Davidoff, ‘Cool Water’ became the cologne of choice with men from all walks of life as it is versatile as much as it is distinctively fragrant. Available in mint, lavender, coriander and fresh green notes of sea water; Cool Water can be worn by any man, anytime and anywhere. It’s a classic choice in every sense of the word.
Eternity by Calvin Klein
It is eternally fragrant, light and airy; Eternity by Calvin Klein is known for its fresh and tangy tones. It first came out in the 1990 via the perfumery nose superstar Carlos Benaim and it became an instant hit right from the get go for being an airy alternative for overpowering men’s scents that where prevalent during that time. It comes in a cool combination of lavender, coriander, lemon, bergamot and mandarin orange; with Eternity you’ll smell and feel fresh like spring all day long.
Light Blue Cologne by Dolce & Gabbana
A scent preferred by men for casual occasions and rightfully so as it’s citrusy, fresh and invigorating. It’s perfect for those who like to party or play golf every once in a while and still would want to stand out from the crowd. With deeper notes of musk and juniper as well as overtones of Sicilian mandarin and especially a tinge of grapefruit, ‘Light Blue’ is surely hard to miss.
The Beat Cologne by Burberry
As per its product description, ‘The Beat Cologne’ is perfect for work or play and I can’t disagree. It has an unmistakably masculine scent as it comes in an intoxicating concoction of woody, spicy, citrusy and aromatic green notes. It’s hip, modern and uncompromisingly manly—the cologne for the confident men of today.
John Varvatos Artisan Cologne
As the name suggests, this cologne is artistic (as per the handwoven rattan bottle), subtle and avant garde. But make no mistake about it, John Varvatos Artisan Cologne is unmistakably masculine. With a mystifying blend of Greek lavender, marjoram from Spain, wild thyme, tangelo, Silician clementine and Mexican winter mandarin oranges; John Varvatos Artisan Cologne perfectly interweaves cultures and timelines in one beautifully crafted bottle of spring fragrance. It is stylish as much as it is timeless; truly the cologne for forward-thinking men.
Change is a beautiful thing and most of the time, inevitable. And as cheesy and cliché as it sounds, it is the only constant thing in this world. Times change, people change and most especially, seasons change. Whether we like it or not, we need to adapt. One way of effectively adapting to the changing climate is scent. So skim through the list of the spring colognes that we’ve compiled just for you. I guarantee, you’ll come up smelling like a rose in the end whichever product you choose.
