A Guide on How to Choose Your Mercedes Benz Cologne
If the name of this brand had you wondering what possible relation could they have with colognes, don’t worry, you are not alone. When I first came across Mercedes Benz fragrances, I felt a little skeptical. While I see many designer brands launching fragrance lines successfully, a luxury car manufacturer making perfumes just didn’t seem appealing to me. But after trying a few, I was proven wrong.
Although fairly new, the brand already has 35 fragrances in their portfolio, great collections to suit every season and occasion. For instance, I found that the refreshing and youthful The Move was perfect to wear during the warm months, whether it was day or night, indoors or outdoors.
On the other hand, when the weather got chilly, I wanted to wear Mercedes-Benz Select Night, and it was perfect for a date night, or fancy dinner with my business partners and colleagues. But I quickly made Mercedes-Benz Intense my go-to cologne for winter days as I was getting a lot of compliments, whether I wore it in the office, in the park or on a night out with my friends. But if you are looking for an attention seeker cologne, my advice is to go with the Mercedez-Benz Man Private. Its rich and exotic aura is sure to turn heads at all the special events you go to.
If you are looking for smell-alikes, here is what I’ve come to find. Mercedes-Benz The Move is quite similar to Montblanc Legend Intense EDT, while Mercedes-Benz smells close to Tom Ford Noir Extreme EDP. Another cologne similiar to Montblanc but this time the Legend EDP is Mercedes-Benz Intense. If you are looking for an alternative for Mercedes-Benz Man Private, my suggestion is to try Bentley For Men Intense EDP.
What To Expect From Mercedes Benz Cologne
Much like their luxury and elegant cars, Mercedes-Benz colognes will take you on a fine ride anytime of the day. I liked how they changed on my skin but I especially enjoyed the dry down notes. Most Mercedes-Benz colognes have decent sillage and projection, and a longevity of 5+ hours on average.
Mercedes-Benz colognes are designed by some of the most famous perfumers like Oliver Cresp, a giant in the fragrance world, which means you can only expect the best.
Their sophisticated glass flacons are designed by world-renowned artists and the best French master glass-makers. Each collection has its own distinctive bottle design, all masculine, modern and elegant. I liked the simplicity of the design, but yet sleek and modern design. The three-pointed-star is featured on all bottles reminding you of the excellence and exception of the brand.
One of the best things about Mercedes-Benz colognes is the surprisingly reasonable price tag. With most colognes starting at $35 along with their decent performance, makes these colognes excellent price for value, and the reason why I could pick up a few without breaking the bank.
