The cologne experts at Scentbird recently discerned which scents men are most likely to prefer vis-à-vis their go-to drink orders. For instance, those who like the kick of a stiff bourbon would naturally take to the notes of cardamom & nutmeg in John Varvatos‘ “OUD” cologne. Likewise, those who prefer a pungent craft beer may take to the woody, spicier undertones of Kenneth Cole’s “Mankind.”
