Though scientists often discredit the power of cologne, we know the truth. And after a breakup, you find yourself missing his scent and looking for ways to recreate it, like going to the fragrance counter and buying a men's scent. 

The best thing about some men is how they smell.

When you miss that guy that broke your heart and you refuse to wash his sweatshirt because it smells just like him, even though all of your friends are getting kinda concerned that you keep showing up in the same hoodie, and you know that contacting him would be the absolute worst decision, the next best thing for you to do would be to buy his cologne and spray it on everything.

Now if you really desire, you can have a bunch of unwashed hoodies that smell like him!

The power of cologne can even cure a broken heart, and that's why we love it so much!

Men, apparently, think the same way about women's perfume.
