Finding a men’s perfume is often not that easy. Apart from the fact that there are just too many perfume varieties, so of course every person has a completely different taste. If you are looking for an oriental fragrance or a floral, fresh fragrance … I can recommend my currently 3 favorite fragrances.
Men’s perfume recommendation
Oriental fragrances for the gentleman
Oriental scents are characterized by a spicy and slightly sweet fragrance. I particularly like the variety of these fragrances, as you can see many different facets in the fragrance, if only one smells exactly. An oriental men’s fragrance captivates with a spicy fragrance that can sometimes be stronger. Often it is also a little sweet, although it can sometimes be woody or harsh, depending on which brand you use. In addition, I personally noticed that oriental fragrances exude their fragrance much longer, whereas other light fragrances run out of steam after a while.
Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Extreme
A mixture of spicy pepper and spicy cinnamon flavors may sound a bit strange at first. If one discovers in the description, however, a strong vanilla note in combination with a slight tobacco note so the scent but interesting. Since the fragrance is an eau de parfum, and the fragrance oil content is higher than that of an eau de toilette, the Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Extreme exudes its fragrance even at far stronger, more intense and longer.
Rituals Roi D’Orient
The fragrance Roi D’Orient is also an Eau de Parfum. It can also be seen again that the fragrance oil content is much higher than an Eau de Toilette. This makes for a more intense and longer fragrance. I especially like this fragrance that you can buy it in very small sizes (10 ml, rounded up for 10 €) and can take it with you in your pocket when traveling. In addition, I find the price for the large size very good, since you get the 50 ml already rounded up for 40 €, which is far cheaper, as with other brand manufacturers. The scent smells of a mixture of smoky amber, elegant musk and a touch of white pepper. It definitely recalls a luxurious trip to the Arab country.
Floral fragrance for the gentleman
On my last trip to London, I discovered a brand that crossed my path in Germany only once. A brand that I found very sympathetic and immediately received my attention. The name of the British perfume brand is “Jo Malone“. What I particularly like about the brand is the British simplicity in terms of the design of the stores, the packaging and the bottle. If you enter a Jo Malone shop in London, you will be asked if you want to have a glass of champagne (which totally amazed me). You have a choice of many different fragrances, where I have to say that in my opinion, the men in comparison to the women’s fragrances a little bit too short (but that’s unfortunately often in the fashion and cosmetics). Since I immediately liked a certain woman’s fragrance and somehow I was after something flowery, I opted for the variant Mimosa & Cardamom.
The fragrance smells of a blend of flowery mimosa and spicy cardamom paired with the tonka bean and a little sandalwood (which makes the scent a little masculine).
