One thing I think we can all agree on is that we all want to smell our best. Whether you’ve got a hot date with the lady of your dreams or you’re going for a night out with the boys, we’ve dug up the perfect scents for any occasion. From light and fruity, to woodsy and musky tones that are all man, to a sensual shared scent, here are our favorite fragrances to help ensure you are always smelling like a man that knows his business.
There are many designers that like to play around with Oud as it’s one of the rarest base scents in the world. Oud colognes are good for whenever you need something earthy and rich. Tom Ford’s Oud Wood, for example, blends the earthy tones with vanilla and patchouli to tone down the usually overbearing scents into something much more mild and masculine. Dolce and Gabbana’s Velvet Desert Oud creates a more aromatic and warm scent, blending the earth tones with ambers for a spicy light musk. On the other hand, Creed’s Royal Oud blends cedar and sandalwood with citrus top notes to keep you smelling like royalty.
Perhaps a shared scent that you and that special someone could enjoy is more to your liking. Nasomatto’s Black Afgano is a pricey yet potent luxurious blend mixed to smell similar to hashish. Unisex and safe to wear for him and her together, the scent stays steady throughout wear, whereas typically, Oud scents like mentioned above evolve and change over the life of the spray.
And, if you find yourself out on the town and looking to meet someone, Creed’s Aventus might just do the trick. It’s no surprise that Aventus has been gaining in popularity lately as the ladies seem to flock to it. With earthy base notes of musk, oakmoss, and ambergris blended with rich fruity top notes like blackcurrant leaves and apple, it’s sure to leave at least a few mouths watering when you walk by.
