The right cologne is an important component of a man's style. But for anyone who has spent just a little time trying to find the perfect fragrance, it quickly becomes clear that the cologne market is a crowded place. Each of the hundreds of colognes out there has its own distinctive character.

The practice of making cologne and perfume goes back more than 3,000 years. While putting together these rankings, the team at RAVE took a deep dive into the storied tradition of fragrance making, delving into the art and science of what makes a good cologne — and what makes a cologne good for a particular occasion.

"The choices are just about endless, and so much of it really comes down to personal taste and where you plan to wear the cologne," said Eleri Miller, Marketing Coordinator for RAVE Reviews. "Is it something you'll be wearing to the office every day? Out to a casual dinner with friends? At a black-tie event? We cover the whole range of options in our ranking."

In order to determine the winning colognes, RAVE compared reviews from sources across the internet and took into account multiple factors, such as concept, composition, duration, price, and sillage.

The top winners in two categories are:

Best Cologne from an Independent Fragrance Maker
Maison Francis Kurkdijan's Grand Soir

Best Cologne from a Fashion House
Tom Ford's Tobacco Oud
