While spray colognes are the classic cologne that will continue to be most popular among fragrance-lovers, solid colognes bring something fresh and new to the table. But what are the benefits of a solid cologne and do they actually work?
What it’s made of: Our solid colognes have only THREE simple ingredients. Jojoba oil, beeswax, and fragrance. These three ingredients make the application smooth and keep the fragrance locked in place for the whole day.
The Price: While all of our signature cologne’s cost around $60, the solid colognes cost $30. Of course, they might not last as long as the large bottle of EDP, however, they still offer great value for the money you spend.
Great for travel: The main selling point on our solid colognes is that they are TSA friendly. If you are an avid business traveler, you will no longer have to worry about getting your cologne past security. With the solid colognes, it’s the perfect size to fit into your carry-on bag, briefcase, or backpack for a day on-the-go.
Not as fragile: How many times have you gotten a cologne only to crack it or have it shattered a few weeks later. Solid colognes are made to be tough and resist breaking. If you have little kids, pets or you are just a little bit clumsy, solid cologne will give you more forgiveness when they get dropped.
How to apply: Application of your solid cologne is quick and easy. Use one or two fingers to get some of the product on your fingers and apply it where a normal cologne would go. On your neck, wrist, etc.… Always start with a small amount and apply more if needed. Also, if you are a first-time buyer of a certain fragrance, it is always a good idea to do a patch test to make sure you are not allergic to the fragrance.
Storing your cologne: Keep your cologne in a room-temperature room. Do not leave your solid cologne in a hot car or outside on a hot day. (Note: WSP is based in Arizona, so if we leave ANYTHING in our cars in the summer, it will melt.) Think of your cologne like Chapstick, if you would not leave your Chapstick in a certain place…don’t leave your cologne there either!
Solid colognes are one of the more underrated products in men’s grooming. They offer a few things that our EDP spray-on colognes don’t offer and they are half the price! My favorite fragrance is our ‘Olympus’ collection, and the solid cologne makes a great gift. Have you tried any solid colognes? Leave a comment below telling us what you think about them!
