Colognes are as important for men as they are for women. Where a women is often defined by the scent she wears, the same can stand true for women. It is often noticed that men in powerful positions wear colognes not perfumes that speak power and exude confidence. We cannot neglect the fact that when one wears a powerful, self assured scent, the same is the way one feels. There are various scents for various occasions and therefore perfume brands all over the world are competing to come up with just the scent that a man might need. This fact is further highlighted by the sudden emergence of of a hoard of celebrity colognes, simply because they too realize the importance of a good cologne on a man. So if you are ready to make a scent your own then you might want to consult our list of top ten colognes for men for the year 2013 and take your pick.
