"Why Low Price Colognes are Never a Smart Buy"

Stop Trading Hours for Dollars

Wholesale colognes may seem like a good deal, but you'll wind up paying for it over time. Whether it's a skin rash, a product that has to be poured on to be effective or the tell-tale smell of a cheap product, that wholesale cologne is more likely to end up in the garbage than on your body.

Keep reading to find out exactly why cheap or imitation cologne is never a good idea.

Skin Irritations

Most middle-level to higher-end colognes are tested extensively for skin sensitivities and potential allergies. Typically, good brands and retailers also let you return the product if you're overly sensitive to it.

On the other hand, a wholesale or cheap discount brand of cologne is likely to use a higher alcohol concentration, cheaper ingredients and chemicals that can cause your skin to dry out or have an allergic reaction. It's also unlikely that the manufacturer or retailer will let you return a wholesale product if you do develop a skin allergy.

Not Long-Lasting

One of the most significant differences between low-end, wholesale colognes and higher-quality products is the item's longevity. With a middle-level product like Bulgari for Men ($55), one spray should keep you lightly scented for the entire night.

With an imitation or discount brand, you'll often find the scent dissipates quickly or reacts poorly with your sweat and body oils.

Alcohol or Overly Potent Smell

Fake and cheap colognes have a distinct smell - like an astringent, but too-sweet alcohol that burns the inside your nostrils. It's almost like cheap, white wine mixed with rubbing alcohol.

If you don't believe it, try doing your own smell test. Get two pieces of cardboard paper - spray one with a middle to high-end department store brand and another with a low-quality, wholesale or discount brand at your local drugstore. Then smell them separately.

Notice the difference? The way one scent is pleasant and the other burns? That's the quality distinction.

Fake Brand Names

You may have scored a great deal on that hot new Guerlain cologne, but is it the real deal? If you're actually looking for a high-end perfume, you're not going to find it in wholesale quantities. A good rule of thumb to follow is if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is. This is true with just about any product, not only cologne.

Instead, avoid sellers of wholesale colognes and look for a trusted and reputable retailer. Both you and others around you will appreciate the difference.
