Best Men's Colognes Of 2012: Tom Ford 'Noir,' Odin '08 Seylon' And More Smell-Goods (PHOTOS)

What to buy for your man... and for yourself.

As someone who spritzes on a different perfume every day of the week, I love a man with an appreciation for cologne. Especially since so many guys think fragrance involves a rigorous shower with Irish Spring or Zest. (Though we certainly do appreciate a man who prioritizes personal grooming).

After sniffing our way through overly fragrant department stores, boutiques and the medicine cabinets in our boyfriends' apartments (I'm sure we aren't the only ones who've borrowed a razor!), we present to you the best men's colognes of 2012. From the traditional woodsy and musky notes to citrus blends of mandarin and mango, these nine gentlemanly smell-goods are sure to keep you wrapped up in his arms.

The "Best Beauty Products Of 2012" covers the top cosmetics, skin care and hair products out of the hundreds that have crossed our editors' desks this year. Winners are chosen through expert analysis based on quality, value and efficacy. Want to nominate your favorite product? Share it in our comments or contact our beauty team at
