Review - Two Popular Men's Colognes That Are Perfect for Gift Giving


Men's CologneMen's grooming doesn't have to be a ho-hum experience, especially when you have an amazing scent to wear each day.  I'll admit that oftentimes I'm clueless as to what to get my father and husband for Christmas.  But there's one sure-fire gift I've found that they're both always happy to receive...a bottle of great smelling cologne.

This year, I  wanted to surprise the two special guys in my life with the most popular men's colognes for the holidays from top designers, HUGO BOSS and Lacoste.

I reviewed the following two popular men's colognes, perfect for the holidays:

HUGO BOSS BOTTLED. SPORT. (3.3 oz.) which retails for $67.00, but is currently on sale for $46.90.

Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Rouge (3.3 oz.) which retails for $62.00, but is currently on sale for $45.77 with FREE SHIPPING.

These Two Popular Men's Colognes are a Win-Win for Everyone!


HUGO BOSS BOTTLED. SPORT.A fresh, energetic fragrance that sharpens the senses, BOSS BOTTLED. SPORT. is expertly formulated to prepare your body for performance. The top citrus notes of grapefruit, yuzu zest and pink peppercorn help to increase the mind and body reflexes, while lavender and cardamom, combined with aldehydic mist work to empower the mind.

HUGO BOSS fragrances add the final piece to the BOSS BOTTLED. trilogy with BOSS BOTTLED. SPORT., the scent that takes inspiration from the strength and durability of carbon fiber.  This holiday, give him the fresh, stimulating and unmistakably masculine scent that will keep him focused and mentally prepared for any challenges that lie ahead in 2013.  The best-selling BOSS BOTTLED. fragrance for day and the seductive BOSS BOTTLED. NIGHT. round out the trio that embodies the competitive, driven, masculine lifestyle that is the BOSS Man.


Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Rouge

Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Rouge CologneAn addition to the Eau De Lacoste L.12.12 collection, this fragrance is defined by its energetic, chic attitude. The dynamic and vivacious spirit of this scent is captured with a triple blend of spices in contrast to a sparkling iced tea note.

Fiery and invigorating, this fragrance harvests a triple blend of spices at the heart to create this robust scent. Notes such as spicy mandarin liqueur, Madagascan black pepper, Indian ginger, and Guatemalan cardamom provide a warm welcome from the cold weather.  A masculine and zesty fragrance with a spirit that can only be described as energetic, Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Rouge tops everyone's wish list for the holiday season.

Personally, I don't know which of these popular men's colognes I like more, for they both have such spicy, invigorating scents and seem wonderful for winter.  The holiday season is filled with such energy and excitement and I think that both the HUGO BOSS and Lacoste colognes capture this feeling perfectly.
