To a businessman, having a great perfume is a must. It is one simple addition to your wardrobe that can make you feel like you own the world. If you are in a corporate world, you must remember the heavy smell of a high-level meeting. Everyone had their distinctive smell; kind of like their signature.
A good perfume can make people remember you even after you have left the room. That kind of power goes a long way when your business depends on being on the nice side of people. Worry not, we have got you covered. In this article, we will talk about the 10 perfumes for men that are making rounds this year.
- Jo Malone London Huntsman.
Imagine deep woods, the smell of the forest and then mix it up with the aroma of a really good whiskey. That is the smell that you get with the Jo Malone London Huntsman. Whatever the look that you are going for, be it a simple evening robe or the sharp edge of a crisp business suit, this is your perfume.
It provides a grown-up and masculine smell. The packaging is not only sturdy but also handy for accompanying you on travels. The cost is not too much if you are looking for an occasional wear.
- Tom Ford Noir.
As the name suggests, it is one of Tom Ford’s signature creations. He is famous for putting in an incredible amount of detail into his work (suits) and the same can be said for this perfume. A combination of numerous Italian fragrances, it lends you an air of being the ‘man of mystery’.
It is a long-lasting sophisticated fragrance. If you are looking for something to make use of on workdays, this is it. The only negative thing that can be said about Noir would be that perhaps it would be a too obvious choice for many men!
- Penhaligon’s Juniper Sling.
This one is for the Gin lovers out there! Made from Gin berries and mixed with a plethora of other ingredients, it is a fun and complex scent that reminds you of the evening life of 1920s London. It is a complex scent to apply but once you get used to it, it can be used all year round.
The flip side is that you will have to be liberal with its use. As it is with dry Gin, the fragrance does not carry along very far unless it is applied liberally. Apart from that, we found no reason why you shouldn’t go for it.
- Paco Rabanne 1 Million.
What attracted me towards Paco Rabanne 1 Million was the evolution of the fragrance as time passed. It starts as something fresh but with time and gives way to something rich and masculine. It might feel heavy for some occasions but that makes it perfect for winter wear.
Imagine wearing the scent of autumn in the winters that is Paco Rabanne for you. Although, I did think that the company could have invested better on the bottle and made it more appealing and aesthetically pleasing.
- Creed Aventus Eau De Parfum.
This is for the conqueror in you. This is for those businessmen who savor war, peace, victory and struggle with equal measure. No, not aiming for poetry here! The Perfume starts with tantalizing notes of luxury and ends at the sophisticated scent of intimacy.
From the packing of the perfume to the bottle in which it is carried; everything is an ode that compliments the scent. It is a classic that rightfully belongs in your select collection.
- Dior Sauvage.
Dior chooses Johnny Depp as the man to represent this perfume, and quite rightfully so. That rugged manly charm coupled with almost feminine refinement is what this perfume is all about. Starting with a ‘fresh’ feel, as it dries down on the skin, it leaves a manly note behind.
Dior promises a modern touch to the vintage art of perfume making. Sauvage is perfect for evening wear as it has an interesting mix of notes that rise and fall and mature through the hours.
- Chanel Bleu De Chanel.
Do not let the name confuse you; just like Coco Chanel designed timeless classics for women, Chanel has crafted this masterpiece for men. It is designed to give you a feeling of confidence and can be worn all round the year as office wear.
It works so well because it combines the best of both worlds. The heavy, deep woods smell is combined with the invigorating freshness of citrus. Not only confidence, but it is also going to get you plenty of compliments too!
- Tom Ford Private Blend Neroli Portofino Eau De Parfum.
Can’t seem to get enough of Tom Ford today! But we are not to be blamed because this lovely perfume makes you remember the spirit of the Mediterranean. Needless to say, it is a summer fragrance and a personal favorite of Tom Ford himself. The Italian Riviera is the inspiration behind it.
Neroli Portofino is a piece of luxury that you can wear every day. Abound in aromatic Italian fragrances; its uplifting citric scent is tailor-made for summer evenings.
- Boss Bottled by Hugo Boss Eau De Toilette.
Hugo Boss is known majorly for its tailoring but if you are a fan of their clothes-craft then you are going to love this! Boss by Hugo Boss delivers the same top-notch quality that has made their name revered in clothing.
Having added several layers to the perfume, hour by hour it takes on a different quality. Hugo Boss has made use of dry spices to get that distinctively masculine hint. The use of dry spices is topped off by noted of cinnamon and germanium.
- Jean-Paul Gaultier Le Male Eau De Toilette.
To be honest, you might find an objection to the opening note of mint in this one. But if you wait for the fragrance to mature, you will discover that it gives way to the underlying notes of cumin, lavender and masculine cinnamon. These are considerable warmer tones and lend balance to the mint.
It is a long-lasting distinctive scent that should be worn if you are planning on going someplace out for the day and want the perfume to hang about you all day.
