We don't often hear much about handsome products for us masculine-of-center souls, but we recently received a few tips from beautyencounter.com. Last time I messed around with cologne I had a blast with Fit for a Femme and wife at their house, trying on loads of different scents. These recommendations are also great across the board to keep you feeling and looking fresh and clean. (Note: these make great gifts for the boo!)
