It’s National Fragrance Day, a.k.a Christmas for us here at The Fragrance Shop. If you’re looking for the best perfumes for men and don’t know where to start, let us give you a helping hand.
When it comes to men’s fragrances, a lot of people are unsure of what to go for. It may be because guys have traditionally shopped less for themselves than women or the fact they’re less likely to venture away from what they know. Typically, women tend to have bigger fragrance collections than men but we’re here to let you know there are many scents out there for you all – and not just aftershaves.
A lot of people Google ‘best perfumes for men’, which is interesting considering the marketing of colognes and aftershaves. At The Fragrance Shop, we believe fragrance is for everyone, whether a particular scent intends to be unisex or not. More brands are mixing traditionally masculine and feminine notes, blurring the old-fashioned lines of floral perfumes and spicy aftershaves and making for more alluring and timeless fragrances for men to enjoy.
From Paco Rabanne to Tom Ford, let’s dive into some of our favourite men’s fragrances at the moment…
Prada’s Luna Rossa Carbon is inspired by nature. The surprising scent brings together steam-distilled botanicals and synthetics with Metallic Notes of Lavender, green citrus of Italian Bergamot, radiant wood of Patchouli and dry amber of Ambroxan. The combination makes for an empowering fragrance bringing an edge to the fresh outdoors, perfect for every guy.
A true modern classic, Paco Rabanne 1 Million For Men is a spicy leather fragrance that smells as rich as its name suggests. The woody base is spiced up with notes of Cinnamon, Mint and Mandarin Orange for a long-lasting freshness that’ll be remembered.
When it comes to traditionally masculine spice and woody scent with a twist, BOSS Bottled Night is a winner. The Hugo Boss fragrance is quietly intense and seductive, with African Violet and Jasmin balancing its musky edges.
Ombre Leather is Tom Ford’s unisex fragrance ‘for the unbeatable’. Strong, spirited and sensual, this textured fragrance unfolds like a wild landscape being revealed. The earthly base of Patchouli, Amber and Moss is wrapped in Leather and Jasmine Sambac, and topped with Cardamom, bringing the effortless essence of the desert sun to your everyday.
When it comes to fragrance for men, Versace Eros Eau De Toilette focuses on the male form. Inspired by the Greek god of love and sex, Eros is an intensely sensual scent where every spray is like a fresh burst of the Mediterranean Sea. Cedarwood, Vetyver and Oak Moss lay a woody foundation, enriched with vibrant Oriental and enveloped in intriguing notes like Tonka Beans, Amber, Geranium Flower and Vanilla. This powerful fragrance will transform your aura.
