Tips for Selecting the Best Men's Cologne

Choosing Men’s Shaving and Cologne Products

A man’s personal care routine may be simple, but that does not mean he doesn’t enjoy some luxuries. Many men find adding skincare, fragrance and other grooming products to their daily schedule makes them feel great!

Most men consider shaving as a necessary part of their daily hygiene. However, men’s shaving products are as much about skincare as about hair removal. With a manual razor, it is important to prepare the skin before shaving, by using a shaving cream, gel or foam. All of these products help condition and lubricate the skin to protect it during shaving and to allow the razor to better cut the hair. Which product to use is largely a matter of personal preference, but two very popular ones are Clinique’s Skin Supplies for Men Cream Shave and the Nivea for Men High Performance Shave Gel Extreme Comfort. Once skin is prepared, a man can get a clean close shave. Then, depending on his skin type, he may want to follow up with a facial moisturizer.

A finishing touch in some male hygiene routines is to use a scent, either in an after-shave or cologne. The choice of a fragrance – or whether to even wear one at all – is very personal and there is no single best men’s cologne for everyone. When choosing a scent, first and foremost is for men to pick one that they personally find appealing. If your man isn’t sure where to start, help him consider whether he wants a spicy scent or something with herbal notes. Does he like the smell of fresh cut grass or leather?

One very popular cologne to check out is Paul Sebastian by Paul Sebastian. This classic masculine scent is warm and woody with hints of citrus. When choosing a scent, make sure to test it by wearing it, as well as sniffing the tester; colognes change over time as they interact with body chemistry.

Remember, there is no need to overdo it with men’s cologne. A light touch is best; you want to share your signature scent only with those closest to you.
