Can Shampoo Replace Your Cologne?

Kerastase shampoo thinning thickening hair expensive cologne scent fragrance good great awesome cheap expensive sale
By now, you’re either a guy who uses fragrancess…or you don’t. And as long as you don’t stink like cheap deodorant, deli sandwich or a funhouse of overbearing pheromones, that’s fine by us. But, there’s a new way to consider dressing up your scent that involves neither, and has the potential to spruce up your aroma no matter which kinda guy you are. Shampoos.

Not so strange really. The pleasing smell released when you’re lathering up in the shower are more and more being made with the ability to stick around a little longer. These shampoos, some even crafted with top, middle and base notes just like colognes aren’t as waft-y as a cologne and help eliminate one extra step in your grooming process. And really, when someone asks what you’re wearing, it’s so much more blasé-cool to remark that it must be your shampoo. After the jump, we’ve got 5 to consider.
