Thus, if your father did not use cologne or a deodorant, it is likely that you too will not use it. If someone did not take time to tell you about the benefits of fragrances, most likely you will not see the need for them.

Men Should Wear Cologne Because;
- Smell Is The Most Powerful Sense
There are apps for everything: connecting with friends virtually, shopping, sharing videos, monitoring a home remotely, and other functions.

- Wearing Cologne Shows That You Care About Yourself
It shows that you love yourself and value yourself. When you value yourself, other people will value you.

P.S: It does not matter if it is a cologne, a deodorant or aftershave, smelling good creates an Impression and you do not have to overdo it, Just a little goes a long way.
