So, What Cologne Did Elvis Wear?

Ah, Elvis Presley. The King of Rock and Roll, the swiveling hips, the unforgettable voice. But did you know he was also the king of…smelling great? That's right, folks, let's crack open the vault of Graceland and delve into the mysterious world of Elvis' cologne choices.

Now, Elvis was a dynamic man. He was a man of many moods, many moves, and likely, many colognes. We have a few of the usual suspects that'd qualify as one of his likely signature scents:

1. Lenel Natural Spray Cologne: This classic barbershop scent is considered Elvis' go-to by some, touted by his tailor and even sold at Graceland. Imagine a blend of citrus, lavender, and musk, like a warm summer breeze after a Memphis barbecue. 

2. Aqua Velva: This drugstore staple was a popular choice for men in the 50s and 60s. Imagine that tingly, cool feeling after a shave, but amped up with a hint of citrus and spice. Perfect for pre-performance jitters and leaving a trail of "wow" on every adoring fan.

3. Brut 33: This powerhouse cologne was all the rage in the 70s, and Elvis, ever the trendsetter, probably wouldn't be caught without it. Think bold, masculine notes like leather, woods, and musk. Perfect for karate kicks, dazzling jumpsuits, and leaving a lasting impression (maybe a little too lasting, depending on the dosage). Anyone living in the era has caught a whiff of Brut.

Elvis was so cool that he made Brut 33 smell like rebellion, Aqua Velva like simmering sensuality, and Lenel…well, let's just say Lenel smelled like Elvis Presley.

P.S. Don't forget to leave a comment below with your own Elvis cologne theories! Was he a Brut man? A Lenel loyalist? Or maybe he sported a cologne we missed...
