The 10 Best colognes
Refreshing and energising, a splash of these unisex scents will leave you fresh, fragrant and ready to go
1. Eau Dynamisante
£29 for 100ml, Clarins clarins.co.uk
In the late 1980s there wasn't a fashion follower who didn't carry this in their handbags – and many of us still do. It's also moisturising.
2. 4711 Original Eau de Cologne
£17 for 100ml, 4711 escentual.com
Created in 1792 and reportedly Napoleon's fragrance of choice, 4711 is still among the finest of the splash-it-all-over-style colognes.
3. Santa Maria Novella Eau de Cologne
£75 for 100ml, Santa Maria Novella, 020 7460 6600
White flowers, spice and, of course, citrus notes combine in this timelessly beautiful cologne.
4. Infusion d'Iris
£45 for 50ml, Prada, selfridges.com
Italian mandarin, Tunisian neroli, cedar and Florentine iris feature in this cologne which evokes the smell of linen drying in the sunshine.
5. Water Calligraphy
£145 for 50ml, By Killian, harveynichols.com
Grapefruit zest and reseda blossom come together in this citrus-based scent, part of a series called "Asian Tales" courtesy of Kilian Hennessy.
6. Eau de Cologne
£105 for 75ml, Chanel, chanel.com
There's just a hint of herb and spice in this cologne, inspired by Mlle's own, and created by Chanel master perfumer Jacques Polge.
7. Eau de Cologne, Citrico
£32 for 125ml, Comme des Garçons, doverstreetmarket.com
This delivers a refreshing and energising aroma in spades - as a cologne quite rightly should.
8. Eau de Cologne Imperiale
£60 for 100ml, Guerlain, harrods.com
Legend has it that this cologne was created in 1853 for Empress Eugénie, wife of Napoleon III. It's light and invigorating.
9. Cologne Bigarade
£100 for 100ml spray, Frederic Malle, lessenteurs.com
Created by perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena for Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle, this wonderful scent is available in two strengths.

Of course, Tom Ford knows a thing or two about cologne and this much-loved fragrance in no way disappoints.
