Cologne Mix and Match
Smelling good is essential for any Boss. Smelling good should be essential to everyone, but some people just don’t care about it. However, Boss’s shouldn’t only have a nice scent, but they should know what type of smell is right for what they’ll be doing that day. In my opinion every Boss should have four types of colognes. One should be for everyday, Monday-Thursday, running around doing their errands cologne. The second strictly for going out on dates. Third for when you go out with mates or when you’ve got business meetings. And last but not least, one type when you’re doing some sporty activity. Even though you’re jogging and sweating, doesn’t mean you have to smell ad doing it. I’ve created a list of colognes that I believe are best for each of those categories.
Whenever I go out to university or when I go shopping or if I’m just running some errands, I always keep a bottle of Armani Code in my car and lightly spray myself with it a few times. It’s a nice smelling cologne that is great for routine days. What I like about it is that even if you overspray yourself accidentally, it has a light scent so it doesn’t hit others hard when they take a whiff of it like some other, stronger colognes do. I highly suggest it to anyone that’s got a hefty schedule and wants to smell good throughout the day without wasting the bottle too quickly.
Going on a Date?
Whenever I go out with a girl, I always wear L’eau D’issey by Issey Miyake. This is hands down my favourite cologne. It’s a very subtle smell yet when girls smell it they always compliment me on it. It might be more expensive than the others on this list, but it’s well worth the money. There’s a newer bottle by Issey Miyake called Intense, and even though it is a nice smell, I highly suggest L’eau D’issey, which is the one in the picture. Spray it on twice and you’re good for the entire date.
Business Meeting or Just Hanging Out
For both chilling with mates and also going on a business meeting, I suggest the Mont Blanc Individuel. This scent is a little bit more sweet than the Armani Code, but it still holds a formal smell to it. Make sure not to spray too much of it on though, because it might become a little too heavy if applied incorrectly. Mont Blanc has many nice scents for men that you can wear for meetings and the like, but I prefer the Individuel out of them all. The name ‘Individuel’ is perfect for this cologne because it truly makes you stand out and really heightens your Bossness.
When I’m working out (which I haven’t done in a while and really need to catch-up on), I spray on some Hugo Boss Energise. You didn’t think this Boss Fragrance list would be full without a Hugo Boss cologne, did you? It’s long lasting, fights off any other odours your body might be omitting during your work-out session, and it’s a really reliable scent. By reliable I mean it really won’t let you down in the sense of being a bad scent and allowing your sweat get the best of you. It’s a pleasant fragrance that any Boss that keeps in shape truly needs to have.
