The 7 Best Solid Colognes That Smell Great

Sure, normal spray cologne is great, but you can’t exactly carry a bottle with you everywhere you go. Plus, one spray too many puts you at risk for smelling a little too intoxicating.

The perfect solution? Solid cologne, my handsome friends. It’s small, compact, and impossible to overdo, so you’ll smell like an irresistibly dignified dude each and every time you melt some of that fragrant waxy goodness into your skin.

Below, 7 great solid colognes you’ll want to slip into your pocket, throw into your gym bag, or otherwise keep on at an arm’s reach at all times.
