How should I choose a cologne?

The best advice when it comes to choosing a cologne is not to select one you like the smell of. Select one that smells like you. Odour becomes embedded in memory and association. So, picking the right cologne can take it from something you spray on your neck, to something people associate with you as soon as they smell it. How to choose cologne On top of the few listed above, there are thousands of colognes available on the market. But how should you go about choosing the perfect one for you? Firstly, never spray more than one cologne on yourself at a time, even if you are only testing. This will leave you confused about exactly what you are smelling. To avoid this, many fragrance shops and department stores now provide small strips of cardboard on which to spray fragrances. How to test cologne Head down to your nearest outlet and get testing! Spray a little on to the piece of card, waft it in the air, then let it rest for a few seconds before smelling it. If you feel over-faced by the amount of choice, speak with your shopping assistant about what you are looking for.
