Top 10 Fragrances For Men


Today we are going to count down the top 10 fragrances for men. The reason I want to do this is that, when it comes to having a successful relationship, how you smell does play a major part. These fragrances that I am going to mention today, 5 are fragrances that I have experience with, and the other 5 are Fragrances that have been recommended by other people.

OK, before we begin I just want to walk you through the process that I went through to select the five fragrances that I mentioned were recommended by other people, OK, I spoke to some friends and asked them to recommend some fragrance for my list, and once they recommended I put those names to a forum that I am involved in and asked people to vote for fragrances that they have experience with.

I asked the guys who wear those fragrances to vote and I asked the women whose men wear to vote. And then I was able to come up with the top five, and, those are the ones I am going to top up the list with.

Obviously I will start with the 5 that I am familiar with and I know exactly how they smell even at the end of the day. These are fragrances that I have bought as gifts for my husband, so I am super confident talking about them.

Let us start with Yves Saint Laurent Eau de Perfume Spray

Fragrance Family, is Earthy and woody


Scent type, Citrus and woody

Key Notes, apple, sage, ventive, tonka bean

The scent is clean and not spicy, it might appear strong at first but then it cools down to a long-lasting scent that is not too intrusive, but yet noticeable. It’s not your typical men’s fragrance, it will surprise you and even your lady friend might be tempted to try it on herself because it smells absolutely gorgeous.

I find that some men fragrances might be too in your face so to speak but this one is calm yet seductive. This is the kind of scent that makes you feel confident, because you know you smell amazing.

Dior Savage au de parfum



I bought a small bottle of this for my husband at an Airport and I loved it so much when he puts it on, its super amazing.

The Fragrance is Earthy And Woddy

Scent type is citrus and woods

Key Notes are Bagamont, Amber, and Vanilla

This is one fragrance that even women have hijacked even though it was created for the guys, its so good that women can not resist its charms, so can you imagine you as a guy wearing this scent? your lady friend will not be able to resist. OK, it’s not just about seducing people lol this scent will make you feel absolutely amazing.

I find that when I look and smell good, my confidence level is off the charts. So whether its business meeting that you are preparing for, when you wear a nice scent, one that is not too invasive but yet its presence is noticed, then you feel super confident to do your presentation.

Franco Demachy the perfume creator, speaking about this scent said that, since the signature is already so identifiable, he did not want to exaggerate the composition but rather strive to enrich each dominant note, to give it more power.

And as you are going to find out when you try this fragrance, the results of the work done on it is a full, fresh sensual and yet mysterious scent.

Armani Code By Giorgio Armani


When I met my husband for the very first time, this is the fragrance he was wearing, he smelt so good that I had to ask him what cologne he wears, I know that was weird but I just had to know because it was absolutely beautiful, its got a sweet yet elegant smell, that is mixed with a hint of spice. It has that distinctive masculine charm that is friendly, and so inviting.

Obviously, since then, I have incorporated other scents into his collection by gifting him a different kind of fragrance every year, because I do get bored very quickly, so as much as I love Armani Code, I do want to smell something different now and then.

As I mentioned this is a cool yet spicy scent that blends warmth, and freshness into an irresistible scent, that will hold on all day long, giving you the freedom you need to face the day or night with confidence.

This scent is all about spice, its warm and gives you a sense of masculinity, it commands to be noticed, but it also inviting, without being too aggressive. Its long-lasting and, strong enough to hold its own.

Jean Paul Gautier Kokorico Men


OK, this is one fragrance that is unapologetically noticeable and its one that has become very popular with most guys since its release back in 2012. The Kokorico has been around for a while and its one of the fragrances that I really like on a man. This Fragrance was introduced to me a couple of years ago by a friend she had bought it for her husband and I was thinking of an anniversary gift for my husband.

Well, my friend told me about this fragrance she just bought and asked me if I wanted to try it and see if its something that I would consider getting for my husband, I tried and it was absolutely superb.

First of all as it is custom with Jean Paul Gautier Fragrances, the packaging is a statement on its own, and then the scent is masculine and mesmerizing.

When I was reading the reviews on Gucci Black, it brought a smile to my face and the description is really eye-catching. Anyway, this fragrance is cool, and it’s not spicy, it’s more into the citrus and fruity side.


Fragrance Family

Cool and Floral

Scent Type

Floral and Fruity

Key Notes

Lavender, orange flower, patchouli, coriander

Remember this is an Eau de Toilette so the lasting power will not be the same as the Eau de perfume, that is the difference between the two, the eau de toilette fragrances are not as concentrated as the Eau de perfume.

More Fragrances For Men


Although wearing a fragrance is a very personal choice, it does impact your relations with other people because if you are wearing a fragrance that is too overwhelming, people will stay away from you because they just can’t breathe around you because your fragrance is just chocking them.

And on the other hand, if you chose to not wear any fragrance, then maybe you will not smell so good so again it will repel people. So the best thing to do is to choose a fragrance that is not too aggressive but at the same time, it smells great both to you and to those around you.

Now, I understand that everyone is different and we have different tastes in things including fragrances, and that is why I included my favorites as well as other people’s favorites so you can have a variety of fragrances to choose from.

Well, I hope my list will help you choose a nice fragrance.

I would like to hear your opinions about this list so please leave your comments below.

Thank you for your time.
