The scent a man wears on himself is more important than a lot of us realize, and for reasons other than just that of smelling good. For example, the fragrance is just as important for making an impression as the attire the man is wearing, if not more so. To help you pick the perfect perfume that ideally suits both your personality and the occasion, here are five of the most popular men’s fragrances that you can never go wrong with, whether you are buying it as a gift for someone or just looking to try out something new for yourself.
A sexy perfume for men in every sense of the term, Versace has aptly named this fresh and masculine fragrance as Eros! Lemon zest, vetiver, mint and green apple dominate the first phase, followed by geranium and vanilla. It’s the heavy, wooden base in particular though that makes men smell so tantalizing and it consists of oak moss, amber, Tonka bean and cedarwood.
Bleu de Chanel
If you are even remotely interested in fragrances, then you have probably heard too much about the Bleu de Chanel already, given that it is one of the most famous perfumes to ever exist for men! While Bleu deChanel is actually not that different from the Versace Eros in the notes it uses, what puts Bleu ahead is in how Chanel has mixed in the notes of grapefruit, cedar and Caledonian sandalwood together to create the perfect accord for men.
Sauvage by Dior
If any men’s perfume can beat the Bleu de Chanel in terms of popularity an even quality, it would have to be Sauvage by Dior. In spite of being somewhat common for many years and even after getting a whiff of the fragrance for the umpteenth time, it is hard not to be impressed all over again by just how good this masterpiece by Dior is. Unfortunately, Sauvage’s immense popularity has led to duplicate items being manufactured and sold everywhere. Thankfully, Maple Primeis one of the very few authentic and registered online sellers of original perfume & cologne for men, so buy your Sauvage from there if you are looking for authentic online options.
Azzaro Wanted for Men
Azzaro Wanted for Men is a fragrance that people like for a multitude of reasons, and every one of them is good enough to warrant this Eau de Toilette a space on this list. Dominated by a citrus and minty scent, Wanted also has a sweet note of apple just below. The wood base keeps both scents from trying to overpower each other and as a result, we get one of the most balanced and well-priced men’s fragrances ever.
Acqua di Gio Absolu for Men
A popular option for the lady’s man, the Acqua di Gio Absolu emits an aromatic fragrance with dominant notes of grapefruit, lemon, pear, bergamot and apple, followed by flowery notes from lavender, rosemary and geranium. The manliness of the perfume is made apparent by the strong scent of amber wood in particular, grounded even further by labdanum, Tonka bean and patchouli.
You can’t go wrong with any of these scents, so the choice depends entirely on what you like, or what the person that you are buying it for is fond of.
