Is there anything more captivating than a man who smells good? We think not, which is why we rounded up the latest and greatest fragrances for him to try this winter. From fresh and zingy to mysteriously spicy and woody, we’ve got something for every taste.
If he likes spicy fragrances
Featuring notes like cedar leaves, rich cardamom, pimento and fir balsam, Bottega Veneta Pour Homme Parfum is spicy, woody and powerful at the same time. As it is a parfum, you’ll only need one spritz in the morning, which will last well into the evening.
If he likes fresh fragrances
Just one whiff of Tom Ford Mandarino di Amalfi Acqua will transport you to a sunnier climate. Citrus fruits are the drawcard of this spritz, and are perfectly accompanied by mint, thyme and flowers. Simply divine.
If he likes aromatic fragrances
You can’t go past Roberto Cavalli Uomo Silver Essence if you’re looking for something that oozes sex appeal. The top note of cardamom provides an aromatic edge to the fragrance, whilst the middle note of iris adds a luxurious touch to the creamy tonka base.
If he likes oriental fragrances
Paco Rabanne Pure XS EDT is a truly interesting spritz, and something we can’t stop sniffing. Dancing between cool notes (such as ginger) and warm notes (like cinnamon, vanilla and myrrh), this men’s fragrance is perfect for someone that wants to make a statement.
If he likes woody fragrances
Narciso Rodriguez Bleu Noir EDT is seriously irresistible. The simple yet clever composition of musk, nutmeg and blue cedar smells warm and inviting, making it a top pick this cold season.
If he likes citrus fragrances
Developed with Zurich’s morning air in mind, Tauer L’eau EDP Spray is a sparkling blend of bergamot, lemon, sweet orange and lemon blossom, mixed with ingredients like iris flower, musk and ambergris to boost its longevity. It’s one not to be missed, and is a classic worth adding to his collection.
If he likes a mix of everything
Coach Man EDT is a truly versatile scent as it’s a muddle of all the scent groups you love. Upon closer inspection, you’ll find fruity notes like green nashi and kumquat; aromatic notes like coriander and cardamom; as well as ambery base notes like suede and ambergris.
