10 Top Mercedes Benz Colognes [Ranked by Occasion]

Mercedes Benz Colognes have been first seen in 2012. This new brand now offers a selection of over 30 colognes that are made by different perfumers such as Olivier Cresp and Dominique Ropion. A typical inexpensive cologne from Mercedes Benz is inexpensive. But you’d be surprised at just how much fun you can have while wearing one of the following scents.


1.     Mercedes Benz Blue Cologne

Released in 2017, this light aromatic cologne is one that tends to appease everybody. Men like how it looks and women love hove it smells.

Spicy pepper and bergamot are its fresh citrusy opening notes.

Lavender and tonka bean are it mid accords.

Amber and musk are its soft base notes.

The cologne is soft and spicy, similar to Sauvage in the opening. But it also comes with a hint of aromatic such as lavender.

Performance isn’t so good on the other hand. You get up to 2 hours skin performance but it’s not the end of the world given how cheap this cologne really is.

2.     Mercedes Benz Intense

This Mercedes Benz Intense is available in eau de toilette concentration. It’s now found in a small 75ml bottle and in a larger 120ml EDT bottle.

Italian mandarin, violet leaf, lemon, and Italian bergamot are its citrusy opening notes.

Bourbon, galbanum, violet, and nutmeg are its mid accords.

Patchouli, cedar, ambroxan and bourbon vetiver are its base notes.

This powerful fragrance is intense indeed. It lasts 4-5 hours on the skin. It has a cheap airy feel about it that is very calming. It would be the first Mercedes Benz fragrance to recommend for the office.

3.     Mercedes Benz Eau de Toilette

If you like the cologne but you’d love to be a bit more subtle, you can choose the original Mercedes Benz Eau de Toilette. Made for the man who doesn’t need to buy a similar scent at a higher price, Dior Fahrenheit.

The cologne starts off with mandarin, bergamot, and lemon.

Pepper, violet, galbanum, and nutmeg are its mid notes.

Vetiver, cedar, and patchouli are its base notes.

Released in 2012, this is the Mercedes Benz cologne to buy for the high versatility and for the gym. However, its performance is very bad. It lasts about 40 minutes in the skin which mostly limits it for gym use.

4.     Mercedes Benz Select

This chypre is one of the new Mercedes Benz colognes. Released in 2018 by Olivier Cresp, it’s a simple scent that is ideal in the spring. To me, it smells like a simple variation of Creed Aventus.

Black currant and bergamot are its opening notes.

Apple and mint are its mid accords.

Based notes include patchouli, ambroxan, and musk.

Blackcurrant and ambroxan are the dominant notes here. Some even compare it to Zebra by Rasasi. But this scent is excellent and why you do pay a bit more than on the previous scent, you get about 4 hours of longevity, which isn’t bad at all.

5.     Mercedes Benz Club Black

If you like cheap sweet fragrances for men, the Mercedes Benz Club Black Cologne is what you need to try. There are a few rumors of this cologne being discontinued and prices have started to rise a bit.

This gourmand cologne starts with bergamot in the opening.

Incense and jasmine are its smoky floral mid notes.

Ambroxan, vanilla, cedar, and benzoin are its base accords.

Projection is above average on this cologne. Longevity is an impressive 7 hours. For the money, you would struggle to find something as good as this, but only if you like sweet manly colognes.

6.     Mercedes Benz Club

This gourmand Mercedes Benz cologne is dominated by rhubarb. However, this note is very synthetic here and you shouldn’t expect the same quality as some of the other brands.

Citruses join rhubarb in the opening.

Water notes, cardamom, juniper berries, and spices are its mid notes.

Patchouli, ambroxan, tonka, and woodsy notes complete the scent in the drydown.

This aromatic cologne is the best choice from Mercedes Benz when you’re not looking to add yet another fresh cologne to your collection. Longevity sits around the 3-hours mark.

7.     Mercedes Benz Private

Men over 30 can easily choose Private cologne for their everyday use. This cologne is the brand’s interpretation of a Middle Eastern fragrance. Needless to say, it has plenty of spices.

Artemisia, cypress, and cardamom are its opening notes.

Lavender and labdanum are its mid accords.

Base notes include ambroxan, patchouli, cashmere wood, and cedar.

This spicy woody leather would also go well with a leather jacket, probably over fall and winter months. Longevity is impressive with at least 5 hours with 3 sprays.

8.     Mercedes Benz Pure Woody

Released in 2015 with the help of Harry Fremont, this cologne is woody aromatic.

It starts off with ginger, cardamom, and apple.

Geranium, clary sage, and violet leaf are its mid accords.

Amber ads depth to the scent.

Fresh green apple is dominant here. But there are no woods in this cologne so it can get a bit confusing. It can be the Mercedes Benz cologne for date night since it since close to the skin for at least 6 hours.

9.     Mercedes Benz Energetic Aromatic

Energetic Aromatic cologne has been made by Annie Buzantian.

Black currant, grapefruit, and bergamot are its opening notes.

Ivy, cedar, and galbanum are its atypical mid accords.

Amber, suede, sandalwood, and tonka are its base notes.

This comes with a fresh out of the shower scent. It can be an excellent fresh addition to a man who likes to wear office attire. It smells OK for about 2 hours before disappearing completely.

10. Mercedes Benz The Move

This aromatic Fougere has been created by Dominique Ropion.

It starts with cardamom, apple blossom, and grapefruit.

Seat notes, geranium, and salt are its mid accords.

Tonka bean and balsam fir are its base notes.

Fresh, fruity and slightly aquatic, it resembles Invictus and it can be an excellent Mercedes Benz cologne to use in the summer months or with casual clothing. The cologne lasts about 3 hours turning sweet in the drydown.

Final words

You wouldn’t believe Mercedes Benz colognes are good for anything. But truth has it some of these are very good, especially given their low price. None of them is truly unique. No Mercedes Benz cologne comes with high-quality ingredients. But for the price, they can cover scent profiles for every occasion a man needs to be present at for a very affordable price.
