There's several things you should be on the lookout for when on the hunt for a cologne gift set. Here's some suggestions on our end:
Price: The most important factor is to know your budget ahead of time as some fragrance gift sets can get pretty pricey (as in you'll be spending a few hundred bucks). Once you've determined your budget, you can assess what gift sets fit that range. We've included sets as low as $25, and as high as almost $300 as some potential options to look at.
Pieces included: Some gift sets come with different sizes of one perfume, whereas others are discovery sets, meaning you'll get to sample multiple fragrances in one go. There's even a few sets that will have one size of a cologne, and then a few other grooming products such as deodorant and aftershave. We've included all of the above in this list for you to reference.
Scents: This is dependent upon the preferences of the person you are shopping for (or you if this is a gift set you are purchasing for yourself). Are you/the person you are shopping for more of a summer or winter fragrance type of individual? Does the person/yourself prefer more of a spicy woody scent or a fresh breeze citrus? It's important to look at the notes/ingredients of a cologne (which we've included for you), so that you way you don't wind up getting a fragrance that somebody doesn't like smell wise.
Season: To that point, what season are you shopping for? As we just pointed out, there is a difference between summer and winter fragrances, so that's something to keep in mind. Also, some fragrances are season-neutral, meaning they can be used at any point in the year, which is another factor to keep in mind.
Quality: Luxury doesn't always equal better quality in the case of colognes, but there is a big difference between dupes/off-brand/knockoffs, and the actual cologne those dupes/knockoffs are based on. We're not saying that the quality/smell isn't good on those specific colognes at all, but there's a difference between a Prada Luna Rossa dupe, and the real thing.
Bottle Design: This may seem trivial, but some cologne bottle designs can get quite funky. If you think the person you are shopping for would be amused by a certain design, that's also something to consider while browsing.
