The 10 Best Solid Colognes To Add to Your Rotation

If you’re in search of a new fragrance, whether because spritzing on

deodorant isn’t cutting it or you haven’t found the perfect glass-bottle cologne yet, you might find exactly what you’re looking for in a solid cologne. In the form of delicious-smelling balms, typically in tin containers, solid colognes tend to provide a longer-lasting scent and are extremely concentrated and long-lasting (so apply sparingly, ‘cause less is more). You want to avoid smelling like you walked out of the flagship store of any given teen-interest brand in the early aughts, right? Right.

Solid colognes also tend to incorporate far more natural ingredients than their spray-on counterparts, so if you’re the type of consumer that cares about things like avoiding harmful chemicals and/or other potentially funky stuff (read: the type of consumer we should all strive to be) there are more than enough options to choose from. Plus, they’re perfect for travel, as their literally solid composition means you’ll waltz through TSA without a second thought.
