If you pay attention to fashion and lifestyle magazines, then you look forward to September issues. They’re usually jammed packed with new products they’ve christened as “the” must have items for the fall. As I perused through Men’s Health, I came across a particular article of interest titled, “Kick The Tires Before You Buy A Cologne.”
I’m often asked to give advice to men about cologne and I always start with the importance of sampling. After all the reading and research one can possibly do, it is the most important part of the process. We tend to be rushed when making grooming purchases because for some of us, it’s the last thing we want to be doing at that moment. When purchasing a fragrance, however, it can be a costly mistake if you don’t exercise patience. That said, I was thrilled to see Men’s Health echoing the same sentiment. It’s a quick read, but loaded with good advice.
As if that wasn’t enough to be happy, my September issue of Details finally came. (I was just about to go out and buy a copy when I saw it looking up at me one night on my bar.) As I flipped through its fashion editorial, I stumbled upon, “Find Your Fall Fragrance.” The story highlights six scents it deems the seasons finest, and I’m not mad at the selections. I must say, Details has really impressed me with its fragrance coverage. I featured one its stores back in June and here again, its back with a good collection for the September issue.
Go forth and sample gents until you find a scent that pleases you. The fall has some good ones to choose from. Keep a lookout for my Fragrant Night Out. It’ll be here before you know.
