Cologne Is Particularly Important In The Summer Months


Some people think men should wear cologne, some think they shouldn’t.


Some people think men should wear cologne, some think they shouldn’t. With or without cologne, remember that you’re always going to smell like something, especially on warm and humid summer days. For those times, a good summer cologne that mimics some indelible, seasonal scent comes in handy. For some of us, summer smells like freshly cut grass, while for others it smells more like the dip in the ocean. You can obviously wear cologne all year, but it’s during the warm-weather months that their value is greatest from a practical standpoint. Here are 4 of my favorite newly-released summer fragrances.



Gucci Guilty Absolute breaks the mold of a traditional woody construction. To set it apart, Gucci created a particular blend with a structure that remains unchanged from the first time it is applied to the skin. The resulting scent features ultra-dry woody notes with depth and complexity, combining the warmth of a traditional wood with the rich amber accents of the Nootka. Intensifying the fragrance’s composition are three forms of patchouli oils with sweet, dark and earthy characters. Created for a man who defines his own masculinity. An ironic, modern declaration of self expression, free from social norms and expectations.

At the heart, exquisite notes of exotic maninka fruit are amplified for maximum effect, while the new addition of vanilla at the base combines with the richness of leather to increase the scent’s magnetic strength.
