THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO PERFUMES FOR MEN
Well, me being a girl, loves masculine fragrances. They are smoky, woody, and spicy. They are subtle yet noticeable. I mean, can you get the vibe? They are classy and elegant. They are calm and sexy. I can go on and on.
Now, this blog is your ultimate guide to men’s perfumes. More than men themselves, this will help you girls find that one perfect perfume for your husband, boyfriend, father, brother, or maybe just a friend or a crush, not to judge.
In the first place, you should know the concentration of oils in respective perfumes. The higher the concentration, the more potent and long-lasting perfume is. People often overlook this and end up buying what they don’t really want. Colognes are the least concentrated, and men are supposed to use low concentrated fragrances. Some people like to wear high concentrated perfumes, while others like to keep it light. Know the person and their preferences before making a choice.
Next, We Will Have a Look At some Significant Masculine Scents Categories:
Spicy scents are warm and cozy. The deep spicy notes often include pepper, patchouli, saffron, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, cloves, and more. Some luxury perfume brands even use authentic (dried or fresh) spices for a more robust aroma. These scents are preferable in winter as they give off a home-like comfort, with a warm cup of hot chocolate, sitting by the fire, reading an extraordinary thriller novel, on a chilly winter night. Perfect for someone who likes absolutely everything about winters.
Citrus includes all the zesty fruits that make you feel alive and adventurous. Orange, bergamot, mandarin, lemon, tangerine all bring out the bright side of a person. These optimistic notes are for a person who knows and believes the glass is half full. Spring and summer are the best days to enjoy such scents. Or maybe for beach days, sipping margaritas. If you are a happy soul with a dreamy take on life, this is for you.
Judging by the name itself, Oriental fragrances express the Eastern history of royals, maharajas, sultans. These include resins and animalistic notes, such as sandalwood, lavender, amber, musk, oud, and jasmine. These are the ingredients people used as fragrances back in the time. Oriental scents are sensual and exotic yet symbolize power, dignity, bravery. For a person having such traits, oriental fragrances are a perfect choice.
Earthy is a broad term used for fragrance notes. We can divide these into two genres—Woody and fresh. Woody Fragrances can be dry and rich like oak, coffee, tobacco, and vetiver. These are masculine notes with unique smoky and lavish touch. Wear such dark fragrances in the nighttime. For a man who knows class and style as he owns it, this is the ultimate choice.
Fresh notes are clean and cool in nature. The smell of salty sea breezes, freshly cut grass, mint, seaweed. These scents are refreshing and green. To be worn in through the day, these fragrances will energize your mood, as if on a cruise ship vacation after long hectic months of working 9 to 5. ideal for a workaholic who needs a break now and then.
