Best Men’s Colognes Under $100: Top 5 High-End & Premium FragrancesCharles-Philippe2019-12-06T09:45:17-05:00
After having looking at fragrances under $30 as well as under $50, we thought we’d take a look at this particular sweet spot of under $100. Although something of an investment, $100 fragrances tend to walk the fine line between premium cost and premium quality.
Therefore, we present to you the best men’s fragrances under $100:
Both as a spectacular fragrance and all-year performer, Terre d’Hermès is a perfect choice for those seeking a high-end scent. With its overt natural notes of citrus and earth, it creates an elegant and understated blend for the modern gentleman for the office and elsewhere.
A contemporary classic, Armani Code continues to perform well against newer releases. Its complex and bittersweet composition of citrus and leather is a seductively sensual and warm experience for those cold nights spent in front of a roaring fire.
Despite the name, Ultra Male has little in common with the mid-nineties classic. Featuring unique pear notes, it’s a remarkably fruity and outgoing fragrance, which offers excellent performance throughout the day. If you’re looking for something youthful and different, Ultra Male is a great choice.
Spicebomb has become a community favourite without being over-worn by the general public. Its overt notes of spices and pine is a rich experience that develops leather and tobacco accords. Those seeking a quintessential winter fragrance could do far worse than Spicebomb.
With fresh and breathtaking sea-breeze notes, Acqua di Gio is a formidable summertime choice. A classic that has endured many years, its citrus and floral aquatic bouquet hasn’t aged a day. For those seeking a summertime classic, this may be the ultimate choice for you.
Given that fragrances are a subjective matter, it is a challenging process to fairly evaluate them. However, by using our in-house Bespoke Unit Fragrance Formula we a provide balanced and quantified scoring in all our reviews.
When reviewing a particular fragrance, we also score it according to its value for money. Whilst this only accords for 4% of the final score, it’s a useful aspect that allows us to establish this very list.
We take into account the recommended retail price as well as the one paid when establishing this. Furthermore, we only base the score on 100ml (3.4 Oz) bottles or the nearest available volume.
This means that we can assess the various costs between fragrances according to the same scale. We find that this is fairer as comparing the price of a 50ml bottle of premium fragrance to 200ml of a budget one would skewer the final results.
Once we have all the data, we assemble it into the spreadsheet and filter out the low overall and value for money scores. We can then select the different price ranges and build out these lists.
Are these fragrances over your budget? Not to worry! We also offer a list of the best fragrances on budgets of both $50 and $30. Just jump back to the top to see the other guides that we offer.
