The Best Three Men’s Colognes
We are often asked the question ‘what is the best cologne I can buy for my loved one’?
To help people who are looking for a men’s fragrance we have chosen our top three men’s fragrances with three different price points and different characteristics.
Our recommendations are suitable for men of all ages, day wear and evening wear no matter the season, all three come with an atomiser spray application.
One recommendation is for a men’s perfume, the other two recommendations are EDPs: An EDP is an Eau de Parfum (a perfumed liquid containing a percentage of fragrant oils that is lower than that in perfume but greater than that in eau de toilette).
Deliquio Extrait de Parfum by Marfin
Discover the delights of Deliquio Extract de Parfum by Marfin of Italy – £230.00
This is the strongest scented men’s fragrance I have come across, a little goes a long way, this is a ‘less is more’ perfume. At this price, presentation is king and Deliquio doesn’t disappoint, it comes in a fancy presentation box with gold leaf branding, the bottle is square-shaped and heavy, this is crowned by an extravagant, hand-carved, Italian Briarwood lid which is unique to each bottle, no two are the same.
- Top Notes: Rose, Saffron and Cinnamon
- Heart Notes: Vetiver, Patchouli and Cedarwood
- Base Notes: Amber and Musk.
