Best Fragrances for Men
Acqua Di Gio
This is a great casual fragrance that I enjoy wearing all day long. It has a lot of citrus notes to it, but it’s not too much to annoy me. There are also jasmine, rosemary and cedar notes that really come through to balance out the scent. This makes me feel like I’m sitting on the beach ready to sip on some drinks! There’s a slight floral scent, but it’s not something that makes me feel like it’s made for a woman. I get complimented on this a lot, especially when I wear it to work. It’s also not worn by everyone out there so I feel like I’m wearing something unique and special.
Bvlgari Aqua By Bvlgari For Men
The first thing that drew me to this fragrance was the awesome bottle it comes it. It’s round with a metallic top that has the sprayer built right into it. After testing this I realized this was a scent that I had never smelled before. It’s got a little bit of spice to it, so I feel like it’s something that an adult male would wear instead of a teenager. It’s also strong, so only a few sprays are required in order for you to smell great all day.
Amber, mandarin orange and sage are a few of the scent notes you will find in this, which I feel really come through in the scent. I like how all of the scent notes come together to create a fragrance that I can feel confident wearing while I’m just about anywhere. It’s an aquatic fragrance, but it doesn’t make you feel like you have to be on the beach to wear it. Soon after smelling this in a department store I purchased it online!
Davidoff Hot Water
I enjoyed the Cool Water scent from this brand, so naturally I wanted to try this out. I got a free sample with a recent purchase at a fragrance store and I was pleasantly surprised. I feel this is a great fragrance for the fall because it’s spicy and has an Oriental feel to it. It’s light and feels like it’s something that men of all ages could wear, including teens and college students. Only a few sprays around the body are necessary in order to achieve a good scent all around your body. Some scent notes included are: red basil, wormwood, vanilla and many others.
When I first smelled this I thought it was very very fresh! It was almost overpowering with the one spray that I used. This is a cologne you don’t have to use a lot of in order to get fragrance from. Although the bottle could use a new design, it’s otherwise a pleasant cologne that is relatively affordable. I think this is a very masculine scent that would be best for an older male who wants to wear something “manly”. It has some exotic wood scents as well as some citrus notes and even a bit of lavender. This is probably one of my favorites, which definitely surprised me!
Obsession By Calvin Klein For Men
Every man has probably heard of this because it’s been around since the 80’s. While it’s pretty popular, I had never smelled it. After finding it on clearance, I picked it up and tried it out. The first scent notes that I noticed were mandarin, cinnamon, lavender, sage and cloves. There are other notes inside of this, but those were the most powerful I could detect. Since it has both spicy and sweet notes, it’s a fragrance that men of all ages can wear. It’s strong, but it lasts for a long time and makes me feel great!
PACO RABANNE – One Million
This is a sweeter scented cologne that would be more suitable for a younger male. It stays sweet from the time you put it on until the time it dries. It’s also very strong, so only one spray is required for a person to wear. If you want something that is fruity and light, this is a great cologne to choose. It’s best for a night out or for clubbing, not to wear throughout the day or at work.
Davidoff Cool Water
I always borrow this cologne from my friend when we are going out. The notes include: coriander, orange blossom, jasmine, oak moss, sandalwood and amber. These and the other scent notes inside of it are what make this such a popular fragrance. It’s fresh and light, but not too light to where you wouldn’t realize you were wearing it. This is a great vacation scent, but it’s also nice to wear throughout the day.
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
This is one cologne I haven’t purchased because it is quite expensive. I still tend to spray it on me when I pass it by and will purchase if I ever find it on sale. It’s a spicy fragrance that I feel anyone could wear. If you want to feel mature and smell professional, this is a great scent for you to wear. Sage, grapefruit, nutmeg and oak moss are some of the biggest scent notes in this cologne.
Vintage Black – Kenneth Cole
I think this is a great casual fragrance to wear when you want something that smells nice, but isn’t over-powering. Men of all ages can wear it on a daily basis so they smell fresh. There are some nice scent notes, including: cedar, amber, ginger, basil, water mint and nutmeg.
Ferrari Black By Ferrari For Men
One thing that put me off about this was the fact that it’s the name of the car. But, it’s actually really nice smelling and is affordable as well. It has a nice scent that is worth having in any cologne collection. It only lasts for around 4 hours, but it can easily be re-applied if you are willing to bring the bottle around with you. It has a crisp scent with different notes that make it spicy, yet light and citrusy.
Le Male – Jean Paul Gaultier
This is one cologne that I smell everywhere I go. Most men have this and wear it out at night, but I also notice it during the day when in the office. It’s a scent that anyone can wear, but I feel it’s best for a young adult male. The bottle is pretty unique and is the shape of a male’s torso. Scent notes include: mint, lavender and vanilla. It lasts for a long time and will not need to be re-applied, which makes it great for going dancing or clubbing.
Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit De L’Homme
This is a very masculine scent that has notes of cardamom and lavender, among many others. It’s a rich scent that is great for older men, but it can also be used by professionals of all ages. It doesn’t last that long, which means you’ll need to re-apply after only a few hours.
Lanvin L’Homme Sport
I think this is a really modern scent that is great for young professionals or anyone that works in the high-paced office setting. It has a lot of lemon in it, but it also has bergamot and sage as well. It’s clean, fresh, lasts a long time and gets compliments from a lot of women when I wear it. This is a good cologne to wear during the day, but it can really be worn any time you want! The best part is that it’s very affordable and easy to find.
Canali Black Diamond for Men
The notes include: mandarin, apple, pineapple, nutmeg, and cedar wood. When you first spray this you will notice the fruits and then the spice. These will mix together to create a spicy and fresh fragrance that makes you feel manly and clean! It’s a sexy scent that women love and it lasts for several hours. If you want to feel confident whether you’re running errands or going to a bar, this is a great choice. It fades to a light scent that will keep you smelling like you just got out of the shower.
