In general, a well-made cologne costs between $150 and $200. Inexpensive fragrances have usually been made to be sold in mass quantities and are less complex to make. On the flip side, a scent that’s more expensive than $200 is rarely worth it. Even the priciest ingredients, such as vetiver, iris, and jasmine, shouldn’t cost more than that to bottle.
