We’re Sort of Obsessed with These Colognes for Men
Smell and memories are so linked that scent memories are easily some of the most powerful memories we have. They trigger a whole host of emotions and there’s nothing quite like a good scent memory of your S.O. Personally, I love a good whiff of my man’s cologne, whether on him or not. Although, body chemistry and pH balance can make every whiff not so similar, when the general fragrance wafts my way, I just think of him or that time when he wore it and we did something wonderful together, like saw the Rockettes on tour or went to Disney World. It just makes that brief moment in time better, adding to the environment and my emotions. Fragrances are powerful — period. So we did a little shopping to compile some of our favorite colognes that we think you’ll love, too! Perfect for gift giving ‘cause we all know that time is quickly approaching and no one wants to be that person, shopping on the night before the holiday! Heck, you might even be with someone who is wearing it rn and you already love it, and that’s okay. . . You’d just be making our point for us — these colognes are obsession-worthy.
