Top 10 Men's Fragrances


Cologne is a great gift idea for a man, but with so many men’s fragrances on the market, it may be difficult to know which one to pick. Choosing the best scent for a man is like choosing a good suit: it must fit him and his lifestyle. Men’s colognes tend to fall into three categories of smell–musk, sandalwood or citrus–so try selecting a different blend for different occasions: citrus-based for the office or musk-based for a romantic evening out.

212 by Caroline Herrera

  • This sophisticated and smooth cologne comes from fashion designer Herrera. She casts aside tradition and imbues this fragrance with grapefruit, ginger, mandarin, sandalwood and musk, with a hint of aqua.

Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani

  • A sensual, masculine scent that mixes fresh bergamot, green tangerine, jasmine petal, crisp rockrose, rosemary, fruity persimmon and patchouli, followed by aquatic nuances. This is an all-time favorite.

Acqua Di Parma Colonia

  • This classic cologne is fresh, masculine, straightforward and natural. Its sophisticated fragrance of lemon, bergamot, lavender, verbena, rose, patchouli, sandalwood and oakmoss is best suited for the office.

Cool Water for Men by Davidoff

  • A great daytime fragrance with hints of lavender, rosemary, sage, jasmine, oakmoss, musk and sandalwood, with an overall aquatic scent. This one will make you stand out.

Curve by Liz Claiborne

  • Women tend to like this scent on a man, and it stays with you throughout the day. It has top notes of lavender, clove and bergamot, a hint of musk and lime, and a base of citrus, sandalwood and cedar.

Drakkar Noir by Guy Laroche

  • If you tend to stick with just one cologne, this classic masculine scent is a great option. It has a base of leather and sandalwood, top notes of bergamot, lemon and rosemary, and a hint of amber and patchouli.

Eternity by Calvin Klein

Jean Paul Gaultier by Jean Paul Gaultier

  • This warm, manly fragrance is a great choice for casual use with notes of fresh mint, lavender, orange blossom and woods.

The One by Dolce & Gabbana

  • This strong and non-classic scent works better for a young professional as opposed to the older man with its heavy base of cedar wood, coriander and basil, and top notes of tobacco.

Versace Pour Homme

  • Another great and invigorating fragrance for the younger man with its youthful blend of musk and bergamot.
