Tips for Picking the Right Fragrance for Your Guy Guys don't approach personal scent selection the way women do. They're less likely to think of cologne as a signature element that defines their style. When your guy thinks of a good cologne, he probably envisions something that works for you but isn't too girly.

Nick Chubb and Isaiah Wynn of the Georgia Bulldogs celebrate after a touchdown in the 2018 College Football Playoff Semifinal Game against the Oklahoma Sooners at the Rose Bowl Jan. 1, 2018 in Pasadena. UGA went on to win in a double OT nailbiter. Matthew Stockman/Getty Images Nothing quite incites the passion and — let's call this like it is — madness of your average tailgate-loving, uvula-rupturing college football fan quite like the prospect of a true national champion. You know what we're talking about here. Bragging rights. "We're No. 1!" The big foam index finger. All that.
