Why you should wear cologne every day

Why you should wear cologne every day

Scent is a powerful thing, it can associate itself with memories, first impressions and life events.  Axe will forever be the scent of teenage boys and exam stress and the smell of patchouli makes me think of the first time I listened to Nirvana’s Nevermind album. My father would only ever apply his cologne for weddings and funerals and whenever I catch the subtle notes of Old Spice I am transported to the feeling of manic stress associated with getting a family of five dressed up and out the door on time. 

Scientists have found humans associate memory more strongly with smells than with words. So it's important to consider the impact the way you smell has on your image.

Some people save their cologne for special occasions but they may be missing an opportunity. The scent you choose will project a message to everyone around you.  If you always smell sharp and fresh for work, people will associate you with those attributes. When you spray a masculine and sensual scent every day, your partner will associate you with that smell and the emotions it evokes. 

Scent with purpose

Wearing scent is just as important as choosing a wardrobe to project who you are as a person and your objectives. Wearing a sophisticated scent that stays with you for the entire day will become just as important to your image as your well-cut suit and buffed shoes. Every time you head out the door, select a scent that will reinforce the image you want for yourself. A scent that makes you feel expensive and special will make others see you that way too. The way you are feeling translates into your actions, so you may find a cologne that makes you feel refined, elegant and expensive, will make you sit up straighter, focus more and be the man in the room that people notice. 

Pair your cologne with your life

A man should have several colognes for several purposes, a cologne for work during summer, a cologne for work during winter, a cologne for wooing your partner and a scent for those days you need something a little extra special to motivate you. Buy a high quality cologne for your wedding so you can relive that special day every anniversary or romantic moment for years to come.

How to choose a cologne for everyday wear.

Take the time to try out a variety of scents, apply the cologne to your wrist and allow it to settle onto your skin. Smell once it has settled, but also check the scent after an hour or so and again later in the day. When you have decided you like the cologne, imagine how it will make you feel. If it makes you feel good, if it makes you feel strong, if it makes you feel sexy - it’s a good selection. If your partner compliments it, it's an even better selection.

These 5 Summertime Shaving Tips Will Make You A Better Person

Gentlemen, we're in the midst of a hot summer. And, as much as you may love being outside and soaking up the warm sun, you’ve got some skin that needs to be taken care of, first.

You see, summer brings a few things your face could do without – like spending all day roasting in the sun, and sweating profusely. These two things alone can lead to clogged pores, dry skin, and irritation - none of which are enjoyable.

Sample pack aftershaves

Great to have the sample pack to offer. BC shipped very quickly along with a free sample of another item. I was interested in their offerings based on the rave reviews from the DE wetshave community. Their bay rum is top-shelf & I also like the Ascent AS. The Havana is also a well touted scent. All of the products have an excellent skin feel with some longevity. The quantity in each sample will give you plenty of opportunity to make their impression. I will definitely purchase from Barberry Coast again. Thank you for the variety.

WOW Factor

This is the best Bay Rum Balm I have used. Love the feel and smell in the morning. I have reordered and will again and again.

Shave Soap Greatness

Used this shave soap and loved it. What a great shave with my Rockwell 6S. The smell is so refreshing in the morning. I paired it with Barberry Coast Bay Rum balm and all I can say is WOW.


This is a great shaving cream for many reasons. Number one being it’s my favorite scent of all time: bay rum. Numero dos: it’s smooth as silk... Really helps a safety razor glide with no irritation. Thirdly it doesn’t require a brush so I can use it in the shower no problem.

Really happy with this stuff. Definitely found my new favorite.


Went well thanks for resending order cause of not receiving first order
