5 Smoke Inspired Colognes for Men

smoke cologne
While I like smelling a camp fire of burning logs while I am out camping and hiking, I don't usually want to smell this way during the daytime hours. But evening and night is a different thing altogether. (Que the sound of a wolf howling at the moon!)

Here are five smokey scents that I've sampled. The first two are very similar, with the latter Timbuktu leaning towards a bit more of smoldering incense than Terre De Hermes which is straight up camp-fire smoke.

Terre De Hermes, Hermes
Starts out bitter citrus and veers into straight up campfire. You know what your clothes smell like the day after you've sat near a campfire? It's a very interesting scent, well done.

Timbuktu, L'Artisan
Very similar to Terre De Hermes dry down, but where the wearer of Terre De Hermes smells like he was just sitting at a campfire for the past seven hours, the Timbuktu wearer smells like he's been burning incense during that time.

Fireside Intense, Sonoma Scent Studio
I really appreciate this one. It doesn't smell 100% like smoke. Rather it's conceptual. It captures the flavor of sitting around a campfire, some baked beans in a pot, good stories & laughter.

Burning Barbershop, D S & Durga
A fire broke out in the Curling Bros. barbershop in Westlake, N.Y. in 1891. All the shaving tonics and elixirs- with their spearmint, lime, vanilla & lavender burned. A charred bottle was found half-full. It smelled like this.

smoke cologne for women and men
Lonestar Memories, Tauer Perfumes
It's rich smoke & leather with a hint of sage and sandalwood. Just brilliant in it's aroma. Conjuring cowboys, leather, camp fires, and all the goodness of the wild west. Very good for weekend night time use I think.
