Gentleman’s Fragrance: Scents That Should Be on Your Skin Now
By Baxter Jacinto
Now that you know it’s cologne, not colon, it’s time to upgrade to signature scents. Listen up big boy, here are a couple of men’s perfumes for your consideration. Some may be familiar and some not, but the items in this list are like the champions league. Choose wisely.
Bleu de Chanel
Fresh, woodsy and sexy, it’s perfect in its own way. If you’re looking for an everyday signature fragrance then Bleu is an option to consider. A small spritz can last you the whole day.
Carolina Herrera CH Men Prive
CH Men Prive just gets the job done. How, you ask? Well the fragrance is not overpowering and will only be apparent within close proximity. You can call it the “I may get lucky” fragrance.
Yves Saint Laurent L’Homme
This perfume endures even on a hot day. Gentle, subtle and soothing—the L’homme is the perfume you would want to apply right after a hot bath, or a day spent chopping artisanal woods.
L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Issey Miyake
Issey is a signature scent perfect for college students, its sweet citrus note ensures you always smell fresh even after an MRT ordeal.
Acqua di Gio
Armani must have created perfection in the form of the Acqua di Gio. Everyone else seem to want one. As such you’ve probably smelled this from other guys you pass by at the mall. While not the ideal choice for when you want to stand out, but it’s definitely perfect as your everyday scent.
If you’re new to all these perfumes, then consider Montblanc’s Individuel as the beginner’s perfume. Be the lifesaver in your damp and smelly office and wear Montblanc’s woody scent with hints of cherries and cinnamon.
Christian Dior Sauvage
When you want to smell like you just bathed in a bottle of perfume but can’t spare the dough, Sauvage is for you. It has a fruity and slightly peppery aroma, and just a few spritzes of this can travel all the way to the next room.
Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit de l’Homme
Here is the champ of all in the list. If Menelaus was wearing La Nuit de Homme, he would have been able to get Helen of Troy back from Paris. She likely would never have left!
