10 Best Perfumes For Men In 2018
How long does it take to become more attractive?
Spraying on cologne.
It’s incredibly undervalued.
Most men use deodorant because they don’t want to smell bad…
but they don’t even think about smelling good.
Research studies have shown that women rate a man’s smell (or scent) as the #1 factor when it comes to selecting a potential partner.
Men are visual and women are… driven by their senses.
But you have to be careful.
Some fragrances can offend, irritate allergies, or annoy people.
We did the research and picked out the top 10 colognes that have the ability to drive a woman wild.
#1 Creed Aventus
This scent can be worn year around and provide you with a mature and masculine scent.
A popular choice among connoisseurs, this fragrance is ideal for dates, traveling, and social events. Wear it during spring, summer, fall, winter, day or night.
The strongest notes in this sweet and woody scent are pineapple, birch, and musk. The spray has a long lasting effect with a medium sillage so it doesn’t over-power.
#2 Aqua Di Gio Profumo – Giorgio Armani
Take the #1 selling men’s cologne of all time, add some incense, make it longer lasting and you have Aqua Di Gio Profumo.
It smells just as great as the original and lasts much longer. The perfect pick for spring, summer, fall, day or night.
The fragrance is aquatic, woody, and aromatic. A mix of spices and citrus notes gives way to subtle tones of geranium, sage, and rosemary, pulsing with recognizable whiffs of patchouli and incense.
This is an incredibly long lasting fragrance with one of the most original scents.
Armani’s inspiration intention with this intensely masculine fragrance was to transport the wearer and those around him out to the Mediterranean sea.
And don’t we all know how much women love an aquatic adventure!
#3 Dior Sauvage
Dior Sauvage is the perfect warm weather scent and is long lasting.
One of my friends told me that he sprayed this on and his wife wanted to take him into the bedroom immediately.
Ambroxan, pepper, and bergamot are the strongest notes and give this fragrance a fresh scent all day.
#4 Versace Eros – Versace
The strongest notes here are Vanilla, Mint, & Tonka bean making it sweet and masculine at the same time. This is one of the most complimented scents I found. Great for day and night, spring, summer, winter, and fall.
It is long lasting and the medium sillage makes it appropriate for social contexts where you might expect close proximity with the opposite sex.
#5 Thierry Mugler – A*Men Pure Malt
It guarantees originality. The method used for creating this fragrance is inspired by traditional techniques used to produce the finest Whiskies!
Aged in toasted oak caskets, the scent reveals a smoky fragrance with a lingering elegance of malt, spicy, woody, and sweet elements. Not too harsh and not too in your face, this fragrance delivers a subtle and seductive knock-out punch.
You will stand out from anyone else and will be hard pressed to find someone wearing the same scent as you.
Although this all round winner is versatile and appropriate for a wide variety of occasions, it is perfect for winter and fall and best worn at night.
#6 Bleu De Chanel – Chanel
The woody aromatics of Bleu de Chanel blend with citrus notes creating a sophisticated and seductive scent that makes way for a spicy undertone as the day progresses.
Another fresh everyday scent. A little spicy from the incense and a fresh from the grapefruit. It lasts you the workday and has a moderate sillage, so you don’t overpower people with your scent.
#7 Versace Pour Homme – Versace
The top notes of lemon, neroli, bergamot and rose de mai mix with middle notes of hyacinth, clary sage, cedar, and geranium. The base notes are tonka bean, musk, and amber.
Suitable for the office or if you’re out running errands. You will definitely turn heads when you walk by people but it’s not over-powering.
#8 Salvatore Ferragamo – F by Ferragamo Black
This is not a unique scent, it opens with a fresh citrusy scent and then turns into something similar to La Nuit De L’homme.
Lavender & Tonka Bean are the prominent notes. The moderate sillage prevents this incredibly long lasting (5-6 hours) fragrance from offending sensitive noses.
A work friendly scent that you can wear in close contact like on a date or at a crowded nightclub. The affordable pricing is a plus.
#9 La Nuit De L’Homme – Yves Saint Laurent
It’s great for a quick evening date but I wouldn’t use it for an all day event.
This would have been my #1 pick back in 2011, but the performance on the current edition is poor after the makers reformulated the ingredients several times.
The weak sillage requires a re-spray every couple of hours. However, this scent remains one of the most complimented scents and deserves a spot in our top 10.
#10 Paco Rabanne – 1 Million
Paco Rabanne’s gold bar bottle dispenses a heady mix of warm cinnamon, grapefruit, blood mandarin and mint citrus notes along with Indian patchouli and masculine leather.
Spray on these fragrances for a night out, especially if it’s an outdoor event because the sillage is strong.
