Men need to understand that in the modern world, they are required to put as much effort into their image as they put into their work, or at least that’s what anyone with an active social life will tell you. It’s not that men are required to wear makeup or dress in expensive clothes all of the sudden, it’s just that a clean look is often the key to success in today’s world.
Although you cannot buy good looks, you can definitely buy the tools required to make yourself more attractive and perfumes are definitely a big part of whatever image a man can have. For your consideration, we browsed the market far and wide before finding out what are the ten best perfumes for men out there and what makes them so special.
10Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Terrible Eau De Toilette
We should point out right from the start that this particular fragrance is extremely powerful, which is why you only need to spray a little bit for it to take effect. Some men unknowingly spray an awful lot of perfume on themselves before going out and it usually backfires. This isn’t the case with Jean paul Gaultier’s Le Male Terrible which is formulated to provide you with a long-lasting vanilla fragrance that will have you smelling nice for up to 8 hours.
9Lagerfeld By Karl Lagerfeld For Men
Recently reformulated, Lagerfeld by Karl Lagerfeld is a classic as far as men’s fragrances go, having a rich history of being extremely popular among young men. This perfume can be classified as a refined, oriental, woody fragrance, which might explain why so many people use it on a daily basis. It is also important to mention that it possesses a blend of warm spices and tobacco, making it perfect for evening wear.
8Lacoste Essential Eau de Toilette for Men
This fresh, invigorating cologne from Lacoste is formulated to give out a cassia, bergamot, tangerine, and tomato combination of scents that will last you for a whole day. What’s also interesting is the fact that if comes in a very elegant bottle that will undoubtedly look good on anyone’s shelves. Not only that but the perfume’s middle notes are pepper and rose while its base notes are sandalwood and patchouli, thus not being too strong when it comes to people’s sensibilities.
7Polo Blue by Ralph Lauren for Men
Every person knows how important scents are on a daily basis, yet not many people know that a person’s natural scent can be affected by their dry or oily skin. Polo Blue by Ralph Lauren is formulated to neutralize those scents and replace them with an ambient patchouli, geranium, amber, and melon fragrance. This fragrance is intended to alter not only your odor but your mood as well by providing a calming, warm, and inviting smell.
6Montblanc Legend Eau de Toilette
Subtle yet striking and masculine, Montblanc’s Legend Eau de Toilette is among the nicest fragrances a man can spray himself with. This particular fragrance contains a composition made of bergamot, lavender, pineapple leaf, and exotic verbena. On top of all that it has an oak moss note made using evernyl molecules merged with geranium, coumarone, apple, and roses, a formula guaranteed to have you smelling like a wild forest throughout the day.
5Ralph Lauren Polo Red Eau de Toilette
Unlike the blue label, the Red Eau de Toilette from Ralph Lauren has a more poignant smell, a pungent scent owed mainly to its unique formula. This formula contains among others red wood, cranberry, Italian lemon, red grapefruit, and hot amber. Thanks to it, you will be left with a pleasant spicy smell that will linger throughout the day, following you wherever you may go. Needless to say, the perfume also comes in a very aesthetically pleasing red bottle that will look very nice on your shelves.
4Armani Code By Giorgio Armani
Armani Code isn’t your usual men’s perfume by any means, not only due to its design but due to its strong fragrance. This fragrance, you see, possesses a strong blend of apple, lavender, cumin , citrus, and wood. On top of all this, the fragrance is formulated to provide a therapeutic experience at the same time, mostly due to how it interacts with the skin. We say this because a person’s dry / oily skin has a major impact on how a fragrance ‘sticks’ to the skin, which is the case with Armani Code which seems to go well on almost any type of skin.
3Paco Rabanne Invictus Eau de Toilette
This particular perfume from Paco Rabanne is aimed at men at all ages, just as long as they enjoy the fragrance of grapefruit and marine accord. It is because of this strong fragrance that this fragrance is seen as the go-to perfume for anyone looking to make a strong first impression. Not to say, of course, that the scent is too powerful or pungent in any way, although it is by far stronger than most.
2Cool Water By Davidoff For Men
Thanks to a formula that contains lavender, jasmine, oakmoss, musk, and sandalwood, Cool Water from Davidoff can have you smelling like spring on a daily basis. This daytime fragrance was first introduced in 1988 and has been a massive success ever since. Also worth mentioning is not to let yourself influenced by the generic name. It may sound like something a teenager would wear but we assure you that Cool Water by Davidoff is a top-notch fragrance by all standards.
1Acqua Di Gio By Giorgio Armani
Acqua Di Gio is without a doubt one of the best perfumes for men on the market today, a popularity it owes to its subtle, yet striking fragrance. The long-lasting scent of Acqua Di Gio is based on bitter citrus, rosemary, pellucid hedione, and sea water. This combination of ingredients is blended into a formula that will have you smelling warm, woody, and musky without drawing too much attention to yourself either.
