3 Elizabeth Taylor - Passion

21 Best Colognes to Buy to Keep Your Man Smelling Great ... (2)So I said my dad is a huge cologne guy right? This is one of his trademark scents. I remember waking up to this scent on Sunday mornings because my room was right next to the bathroom. It smells like lavender, amber and sandalwood. For me, it is not a romantic scent but I know that my mom loves when he wears it. If you want your man to smell ever-so-appealing, this is the scent to do it.

4 Azzaro – Chrome

21 Best Colognes to Buy to Keep Your Man Smelling Great ... (3)This one is one of the few scents from Azzaro that I love. It's not only a very masculine fragrance but it's filled with notes of rosewood, icy, oakwood and sandalwood. It's a little woody, a little nutty and definitely great for the office or date night. The best part about this scent is that it doesn't overpower, so if guys are wearing it around the office, they aren't leaving the scent behind them as they walk. That's a plus right?

5 Calvin Klein – Eternity

21 Best Colognes to Buy to Keep Your Man Smelling Great ... (4)Another best cologne for men comes from the maker of the best boxers for men – CK! Calvin Klein has been a favorite of mine for years, I love his clothes and his scents. Eternity Aqua is definitely at the top of the list of CK scents that I love. I like the chilled cucumber smell, the citrus bite to it and the lavender that just seems to make it all come together. It's the perfect scent for any time of the day.

6 Lucky Brand – Lucky Number 6

21 Best Colognes to Buy to Keep Your Man Smelling Great ... (5)Lucky Brand is one of my favorite brands of perfumes, however I never had a chance to smell any of their colognes until I came across Lucky Number 6. This smells like heaven in a bottle! Not only do fruit notes come out but it has a ton of natural herbs and spices in it that make this scent absolutely beautiful. Are you looking for something to spice up your man's smell ladies? This one would be it!

21 Best Colognes to Buy to Keep Your Man Smelling Great ... (6)So this is one of the CK scents that has been around forever (not kidding, '86 – I was … never mind, I was young when this came out!) but that doesn't mean it is outdated. It's actually one of the few Calvin Klein products that reeks sexy and that is why it's on the list of the best colognes for men – it's the perfect date cologne. With notes of clove, nutmeg, myrrh and mandarin, I know that your man will smell incredible when he splashes this on.

21 Best Colognes to Buy to Keep Your Man Smelling Great ... (7)I absolutely love Curve – in fact, I used to personally wear this scent around (just because I thought that it smelled good and hey – it's okay for girls to wear cologne sometimes)! Not only does this little fragrance smell like a blast of citrus and musk, but it's light – which means that your man can wear it during the day and night. If you want your guy to get noticed by his smell, this is one scent that will do it!

Trust me on this one, this incredible best colognes for men list wouldn't be complete without Illicit!

16 Lacoste L!ve

21 Best Colognes to Buy to Keep Your Man Smelling Great ... (15)Tested by real women, this cologne gets top marks for a good reason. Men love it because women love it, so give it a good whiff. I think you'll see what I mean pretty quickly. This cologne has the ideal mixture of lime mixed with a woods smell that just screams manly man. It's great for causal or formal wear.

17 Michael Kors for Men

21 Best Colognes to Buy to Keep Your Man Smelling Great ... (16)If you think the Michael Kors brand is just for women, you have never been more wrong.

20 Blue Encens by Comme Des Garcons

21 Best Colognes to Buy to Keep Your Man Smelling Great ... (19)The scents of this cologne are great for a New Age kind of guy. It is primarily incense, but also a bit of a floral note mixed in with some spices. Not everyone is going to love this scent, but many testers call it perfect so I think you should definitely give it a try.

21 Brit Play by Burberry

21 Best Colognes to Buy to Keep Your Man Smelling Great ... (20)Yep! Burberry makes more than just that iconic plaid we all love so much.
