You don't have to go too heavy on the cologne this summer, when less is more.
As your body temperature rises, so does the area of your "scent cloud," meaning your natural aroma will be more prominent than it is during spring or winter.
But that doesn't mean you shouldn't spray on some cologne whenever you want to smell extra good. Just make sure summer fragrances are light and watery, with citrus, sea and subtle woodsy notes, and you'll smell as bright and clean as the season itself.
Here, 10 great men's fragrances to rock this summer. She'll thank you later.
