Many men consider wearing cologne a luxury expense or outdated style.  In fact most men now days have never even worn cologne.  There in lies the opportunity.  The one who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. Those who walk alone are likely to find themselves in places no one has ever been before.

Can something as simple as men’s cologne play even a small role in our lives? The answer is Yes. We give you six reasons you should consider wearing cologne.


Wearing Cologne Can Remind You Of Good Times

Have you ever heard of something called a scent memory? It’s when a scent reminds you of a specific memory, a particular place, or one specific person. Like when you are cooking one of your moms’s old recipes and the whole house begins to smell like pleasant memories from your past.  This is the power of the scent, and we all experience it in this way or another throughout our lives. Fragrances can make you nostalgic for a specific time in your life and just might make someone else who smells your cologne feel the same way.


Wearing Cologne Can Boost Your Confidence

Wearing a fragrance can boost your confidence. Its the old – Look Good, Feel Good adage. There are many situations in real life when you feel less confident. Like when you are about to go to a job interview or or meet your girlfriend’s parents for the first time.

If you are well-dressed and wearing a nice and crowd-pleasing scent, there is a good chance that you will get compliments, which can boost your confidence and make you more comfortable and relaxed. Sometimes when you wear a really good men’s cologne it will also boost your confidence and make you feel confident.


Cologne Can Help Make a Good Impression

Wearing cologne causes physiological effects on the recipient or the person who smells your scent.  Fragrances can sometimes reflect a particular impression about you; for example, light scents can give the impression that you are a friendly and peaceful person.

Some fragrances have an aggressive nature, reflecting an impression of a confident person who doesn’t care about what everyone thinks of him. When you are well dressed and wear the right fragrance for the right occasion, it gives the impression of a well put together person; someone who is organized and on time.

Cologne Can Increase Your Attractiveness

One of the most significant and strange effects of wearing cologne is to increase your attractiveness to the opposite sex, especially for men.  Women are more sensitive to the sense of smell, while men are more drawn to the visuals. Sometimes, just wearing a nice cologne out on a Friday night can be a conversation starter and lead to a memorable and perhaps lifechanging evening.  Don’t underestimate the power of wearing the right fragrance for the right occasion; you’ll be surprised.


Wearing Cologne Can Put You In a Good Mood

One of the main reasons why you should wear cologne as a daily habit is its physiological effects on the wearer. The effect can be subtle or significant, depending on the person himself and his state of mind, but it’s definitely a real thing. Sometimes, wearing cologne can cheer you up or make you feel uplifted or even energized when you feel down.

Some fragrances can remind you of a happy memory or a special occasion like when you first met your wife or when your kids were born. Enhancing your demeanor to be more happy and positive is something that all people should do and fragrances are one way to do that. This is what Aromatherapy is all about. It uses aromatic oils to enhance physical and emotional health.  Wearing cologne is no different.


Cologne Can Be Used As An Accessory

Wearing cologne can take your outfit to the next level.  It doesn’t matter whether you dress up or down; it will significantly impact your final image as long as you put a complementary fragrance with your attire. It’s the small detail that none of your guy friends will notice but all of you female friends.

There are fragrances well suited for formal occasions, and there are others for more casual ones. There are no rules and you should mix and match and then judge the reactions and finely tune the combinations that work best.
