Cocktails & Colognes

You’ve heard of pairing cocktails with food—but we’re taking the concept one step further by matching your go-to tipples with our favorite fragrances. After all, like cologne, cocktails run the gamut from warm and woodsy to bright and bracing. Whether you like your drinks fruity and refreshing or more on the dark and neat side, we’ve got a cologne for you.

Cocktail: Gin & Tonic
Cologne: Acca Kappa White Moss Eau de Cologne
This crisp, aromatic scent has juniper top notes and a mossy, woodsy base. Like a G&T, it’s made for garden parties and sweltering nights.

Cocktail: Blood & Sand
Cologne: English Laundry Arrogant Eau de Toilette
This cologne pairs opening notes of citrus and spice with base notes of sandalwood, amber, and musk. In other words, like Blood & Sand—a scotch cocktail that’s smoky and sweet—it’s appropriate for warm weather and cooler climes.

Cocktail: Aperol Fizz
Cologne: John Varvatos Artisan
This citrusy scent, which blends Sicilian clementine, Mexican mandarin, and tangelo, is the fragrance equivalent of an Aperol Fizz. This light take on a classic Campari and soda is perfect for summertime.

Cocktail: Pomelo Cocktail
Cologne: Atelier Cologne Mistral Patchouli
This earthy cologne with a base of Indonesian patchouli has an unexpected zestiness that reminds us of this Israeli cocktail made from pomelo juice, arak, an anise-flavored liquor, and mint.
