When it comes to fragrances, you don't always have to empty your wallet for sophistication and style. Whether you're a “smart” shopper or just want a good deal.

Let’s break down some of the best colognes under $20. We’ll show you fragrances that leave a mark without “burning a hole” in your pocket.


How Long Does a Cologne Last?


How a cologne smells and how long it lasts depends on the notes and their combination, and the skills of the person creating the fragrance. The good ones usually mix natural and synthetic ingredients to get that perfect blend. All of this adds up to what makes a cologne unique and long-lasting.

So, when picking one, think about what you like and where you're planning to wear it. You want it to match your style, after all!


What Makes A Good Cologne?


A good cologne is made up of a blend of aromatic compounds, which can include natural and synthetic ingredients. These compounds are carefully chosen and combined to create a balanced and pleasing fragrance.

The key components of a cologne formulation include:

Top Notes: These are the initial scents that you smell when you first apply the cologne. They are often light and fresh, and they evaporate quickly.

Middle Notes (Heart Notes): After the top notes dissipate, the middle notes become more pronounced. They are the heart of the fragrance and provide complexity and character to the scent.

Base Notes: Base notes are the foundation of the fragrance and provide depth and longevity. They emerge as the top and middle notes fade away.

Fixatives: These are ingredients that help stabilize and prolong the scent of the cologne. They prevent the more volatile components from evaporating too quickly and help the fragrance last longer on your skin.

Solvents: These are the liquids used to dilute and disperse fragrance oils. Common solvents include ethanol (alcohol), which is the most widely used solvent in colognes, and water, which may be added in small amounts.

Modifiers: Modifiers are ingredients used to adjust and fine-tune the fragrance's overall character, ensuring a well-balanced and harmonious aroma.


What Makes Chez Pierre Fragrances The Best?


Intensity

The intensity of our fragrances is certainly noteworthy. They’re not overpowering, which is a plus, but not subtle either. The notes stand out and give you a refreshing and lasting scent. There are fragrances for all occasions and demographics.

Longevity

One of the standout features of our fragrance is longevity. They easily last a full workday and even extend into your evening plans. The longevity rating is no exaggeration; you can apply it in the morning and still catch whiffs of it on your skin by the time the day is over.

Price

At €18 for a 50ml bottle of perfume. Our fragrances won't break your bank, and the bottle size is reasonable. You're getting a quality fragrance that's affordable, which is a win-win in our books.
