Solid colognes are becoming a popular alternative to the over-priced, over-marketed, over-done liquid colognes that promise an endless stream of attractive, adoring women in your scent-filled wake.
Solid colognes are better than liquid cologne in a number of ways:
It’s portable, packaged in small, spill-proof containers that make it easy to travel with, or throw in your gym bag, backpack, or dopp kit.
It’s natural, with ingredients like beeswax, shea butter, jojoba oil, and essential oils that won’t irritate your skin.
It’s moisturizing, so it won’t dry out your skin like alcohol-based liquid colognes.
It’s local, with many of the fragrances made by hand by small companies in the United States.
It’s concentrated, lasting longer than other colognes without making your favorite shirts smell like musk for the next month.
It’s inexpensive, because they’re not trying to compete with every other fragrance in the department store, and pay for celebrities to endorse their scent in million-dollar commercials.
So if you want to smell good without a lot of hassle, here are some great solid colognes to check out:
