Amazon Black Friday Cologne Deals
Amazon is the king of Black Friday sales and will be running its biggest price slashes from Thursday, November 24th for 48 hours.
I’m preparing for some pretty wide-ranging discounts, and it’s worth knowing that you can set up notifications for price drops on your favorite products.
They’ve already started uploading some preview deals to get you in the mood. Here are some of my highlights:
Paco Rabanne 1 Million – 25% Off
Paco Rabanne 1 Million
1 Million is a sweet, vibrant fragrance perfect for youthful revelry. It’s an intoxicating blend of spiced cinnamon and juicy citrus fruits that girls seem to fall in love with.
With bright orange and grapefruit resting on a bed of amber and woodsy notes, 1 Million last for an impressive 8 – 10 hours. Plenty of time for partying, with enough firepower to get you noticed even in a busy club.
For Black Friday it’s reduced by a quarter, down from $79.90 to $59.98 for a 1.7 fl oz bottle.

The One by Dolce & Gabbana – 39% Off
The One for Men is one of the best date scents on the planet. It captures that feeling of the first kiss with somebody you’ve been admiring for a while.
The One by Dolce & Gabbana
In the opening, there’s a dash of sour grapefruit, livened up by the fresh spice of ginger and cardamom. Once the fragrance settles, you’re into the warmer, richer elements of amber and tobacco.
It’s held together by subtle cedar in the base, which provides The One for Men with the necessary bite and masculinity.
This is a sexy, romantic fragrance that women seem to love to get close to. Luckily, Amazon has it at a 39% markdown from $105 to just $63.85.

Unforgivable Sean John – 58% Off
Unforgivable starts out with zesty blast of mandarin, lemon, and grapefruit, before calming down into sweet, green freshness. It’s a real attention grabber for the first few hours.
Unforgivable Sean John
In the dry down, it’s rounded out by flickers of bergamot as we descend into a boozier, woody base. It reminds me of drinking a stiff rum in a sandalwood cabin – incredibly warm, smooth, and homely.
It was one of my top picks for Creed Millesime Imperial clones, and that fragrance runs for $300. So the fact you can pick up unforgivable for just $32.99 this Black Friday is an absolute steal.

Nordstrom Black Friday Cologne Deals
Nordstrom releases the bulk of their cologne Black Friday deals on November 18th, and if their clothing previews are anything to go by, we’re going to get some huge savings.
So far, they’ve only announced one major cologne deal – but it’s a pretty good one:
Eau D’Ikar by Sisley Paris – 50% Off
This elegant cologne smells classy and natural, with a soapy quality that will keep you smelling fresh all day.
Eau D’Ikar by Sisley Paris
Subtle hints of sharp citrus and light spice will add a gentlemanly air that feels professional and confident.
D’Ikar is an excellent summertime choice for when you need something that is attractive without feeling sickly sweet or cloying. It also has enough longevity to last all day at the office without having to worry about reapplying it.
FragranceX Black Friday Cologne Deals
FragranceX has announced a Black Friday 15% off coupon to use site-wide. Combining that with their already insane discounts, I’m looking to pick up some colognes for around 75% off retail price. Perfect for getting some gifts to hand out for Christmas next month, too.
Just join their coupon list here to get the offer straight to your inbox.
Just make sure you’re buying the correct product variation – testers are great value, but you’ll want the official box and packaging if you’re giving cologne as a gift.

How to Buy Some of the Most Popular Men’s Fragrances on Black Friday
Here are the best ways to keep track of the best-selling colognes to make sure you’re getting the best deal this Black Friday:
Where’s the Best Place to Buy Dior Sauvage in the Black Friday Sale?
I haven’t found any great Dior Sauvage Black Friday deals yet, but Dior does usually run a sale on their most popular colognes.
It’s best to set up some Amazon alerts for Dior’s official Amazon page. The discounts will most likely kick in from Thursday 24th November.
Dior Sauvage is a modern-day classic cologne. It’s a versatile blend that suits pretty much all seasons and occasions with an impeccable balance between freshness and a touch of deep, woodsy spice.
It revolves around key notes of pepper, ambroxan, and bergamot, and I’m sure it’s going to fly off the shelves this Black Friday.

Where’s the Best Place to Buy Armani Acqua di Gio in the Black Friday Sale?
Acqua di Gio summer cologne captures the essence of the Mediterranean, of energizing citruses carried by the salty oceanic breeze.
Acqua di Gio
It’s a perfect marriage of carefree summer vibes, while still retaining an undercurrent of masculinity through a woodsy base and interesting herbal nuances.
Amazon has already announced a great Black Friday deal on Acqua di Gio, offering 34% off their 3.4oz bottle. That’s down from $95 to a very affordable $62.49, saving you $32.51 overall.

Where’s the Best Place to Buy Polo Cologne in the Black Friday Sale?
Ralph Lauren usually runs a pretty extensive Black Friday sale on their official website, but there are some good deals out on 3rd party sites already.
Polo Sport by Ralph Lauren
If you’re a fan of Polo Sport, Amazon has you covered. It’s already marked down 22%.
This casual cologne is full of energy and dynamism, perfect for aquatic daily wear when you’re looking to feel fresh rather than dress to impress.
With clean citrus, a touch of soapy florality, and a breeze of cooling mint, Polo Sport has everything I look for in an active fragrance. I’ll be taking advantage of this deal for sure.
