Best smelling mens cologne under 50

Dolce & Gabanna Light blue

Dolce Gabbanna Light Blue - Best Cologne for men 2017


The fragrance has been described as a mediterranean experience with hints of citrus blended with a woodsy spice.  It's a fresh and clean fragrance 


Light Blue comes in the following volumes 1.3 ounce, 2.5 ounce, or 4.2 ounce.  It's packaged in a glass bottle with a spray nozzle.  


You'll find the 2.5 ounce bottle at the $36 price point at most retailers, give or take a few dollars.  This translates into $14.40 per ounce an overall good price for a nice cologne

Be Careful

Some retailers sell fake versions of this cologne, so buy from a reputable place.  If you get a fake report it immediately and request a refund.

There is a men's and womens cologne under the same name, so be sure you pickup the right one.

Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir

Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir - Best cologne for men 2017


Described as an Earthy, Sophisticated, Luxurious, and Mature fragrance that is woodsy and floral.  Featuring Amber, Darjeeling Tea, Bergamot, and Papyrus notes.  


It comes is 1.0 ounces, 1.7 ounces, 3.4 ounces


Depending on where you buy you'll spend anywhere from $20 - $100, however the best price you'll find is around $37 for 3.4 ounces.

Be Careful

As always there are fakes, so if you don't get the staying power or something seems off report it.  Buy from a reputable retailer

Paco Rabanne 1 Million

Paco Rabanne 1 million - Best Cologne for men 2017

This is a new one for me and let me say wow.


The top notes hit you with a citrusy minty freshness, followed by a bit of spiciness with cinnamon heart and completes with a sophisticated leather base note.

Don't let the gold bottle fool you that this is some over the top cologne because it's not.  Some like to call it the attention seeker because people notice you while wearing it.  Yeah, it's that good.


There are a variety of sizes from 50ml, 1.7 ounces, 3.4 ounces, 6.6 ounces, and 6.7 ounces


In order to stay under the $50 price point you'll need to stick with the 1.7 or 3.4 ounce size.  We found several vendors right at or under the $50 mark for the 3.4 ounce version.  Some vendors sell the smaller size for almost the same price.

Be Careful

Knockoffs are also quite common unfortunately.  Buy for a know retailer and let them know if you get something that doesn't look authentic or if the cologne doesn't have staying power.

It's early in 2017 and only had a chance to try a few fragrances for this list.  Do you have a recommendation for the best cologne for men 2017?  If so just let me know and I'll check it out.
