Fine Men’s Fragrances of Varying Costs

Green Irish Tweed by Creed

Creed is a privately owned fragrance company based in Paris. Passed down through generations, the family has produced colognes beloved by Hollywood actors and actresses, most notably Cary Grant. Green Irish Tweed, his signature scent, is my favorite of their offerings. A masculine yet sophisticated scent, it’s a bit steep at $170 for a 4oz. bottle. I usually reserve Green Irish Tweed for special occasions, but regardless of environment, Green Irish  Tweed will make you feel like a leading man.

Hugh Parsons Traditional

I stumbled upon Hugh Parsons Traditional Cologne by Hugh Parsons while shopping at a department store in 2006. I’ve worn it sporadically since then, though it’s become increasingly hard to find in stores. You can still find it at retailers like and it is a real bargain at $33. I don’t particularly believe in daytime vs. nighttime scents, but if a cologne were to be more appropriate for daytime wear, this would be it. It is a sporty, light fragrance that I quite enjoy.

John Varvatos Vintage

John Varvatos is a beloved name around here, and for good reason. His menswear line changed the way that American men wore formal-wear, and he has continued to push the boundaries in contemporary casual design. I fell in love with John Varvatos Vintage last year and it has been a constant since then. The scent is marked by a decided ruggedness consistent with the Varvatos brand, and it’s a perfect cologne for night’s on the town.
