Like a moth to a flame, some colognes are capable of snatching our attention by appealing to our senses. Whether warm and woody or fresh and clean, colognes have the power to convey personality and attract attention. So, if you’re looking to boost your desirability, the right scent will go a long way. Luckily, we know what you need. Here are the best smelling and most irresistible colognes for men.
Christian Dior Sauvage Eau De Toilette
Sauvage is an act of creation inspired by wide-open spaces. An ozone blue sky that dominates a white-hot rocky landscape. A bold composition for a true-to-himself man.
“To create Sauvage, I used man as my starting point. A strong and unmistakable masculinity. Like the image of a man who transcends time and fashion.”
The vibe is outlaw-meets-poet and the mood is untamed sensuality. Sauvage evokes a combination of raw masculine power and a fresh and playful sweetness. The fragrance greets you with juicy bergamot and pepper—strong and unapologetic. Next comes the ambroxan, woody and musky. Hitting bullseye, last but not least, is Papua New Guinean Vanilla absolute.
Acqua di Giò Absolu Eau de Parfum
This enticing men’s cologne creates an elegant juxtaposition between the clean fragrance of fresh aquatics and the warmth of woody scents. A sensual and long-lasting men’s fragrance, this ARMANI beauty cologne explores the dynamic relationship between man and nature.
Acqua di Giò Absolu ticks all the boxes in terms of elegance, dependability, and great performance. It will quickly become an everyday essential—as integral to your outfit as your favourite watch. In other words, it’s already a modern classic.
Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
Each fragrance in Mr Tom Ford’s ‘Private Blend’ line features scents the designer has a personal connection to. Evoking the smell of ‘Tuscan Leather’, this Eau de Parfum blends warm, smooth notes of Olibanum, Night Blooming Jasmine and Black Suede.
For truly stand out scents, no one does it better than Tom Ford. Wear Tom Ford Tuscan Leather’s scent on chilly winter’s day when you’re dreaming of roaring fires and a glass of the good stuff.
Monsieur by Frederic Malle
Aptly called ‘Monsieur’, this Frederic Malle Eau de Parfum was created by Mr Bruno Jovanovic in an effort to utilise Patchouli in a modern way. Underscored by the heady note, it’s complemented by a bevy of masculine elements, including Rum Absolute, Cedar, Suede and Frankincense. Mandarin Orange top notes keep it light, while an infusion of Vanilla, Amber and Musk create harmonious balance.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian
Maison Francis Kurkdjian calls it the “missing link.” The brand’s original scent that’s at once light, clean and powerful, ‘Aqua Universalis’ is composed of sweet notes of Orange Blossom and Lily bouquets blended with a subtle Musk and aromatic Wood.
This fragrance manages the rare feat of smelling both clean and sexy. It’s green and lemony and woody all at once, then it dries down to smell like lilies held by a hot Italian guy (translation: There’s some musk in there, but you definitely won’t mind).
