Best Jo Malone Colognes for Men in 2020


Jo Malone London was founded by the great British perfumer Jo Malone. It is now owned by the renowned perfume giant Estee Lauder and produces some of my favorite unisex colognes.

The Jo Malone London style is simplicity. Each fragrance is carefully crafted with minimal notes chosen because of how well they complement each other. The results are divine, uncluttered colognes.

Some are fresh and some are warm. And if it’s an individual fragrance that you’re looking for, Jo Malone colognes are the best you’ll find for layering together. If you carefully choose just three or four fragrances, you’ll be able to experiment and create an unlimited number of scents.

If you’re looking for the best men’s cologne from Jo Malone, look no further. Here are 7 of the best Jo Malone Colognes for men that can be worn on their own or layered to create any number of unique fragrances.
