Seasonal sales can cause you to think of strange things, but it’s possible to fall for a great scent in the depths discounting.
It’s a smart decision to smell good, no matter the season. Today’s steady stream of reductions at retailers means that there are plenty of ways to get a better scent for less money.
We’re not talking about the cloying colognes or celeb spritzes of the past. Instead, we’re talking about big-name brands like Acqua di Paarma and Dior as well as less-known finds from the coolest niche brands. We’ve compiled a list of the best men’s perfumes currently available in the market.
- BOSS Bottled Night Eau de Toilette
- Calvin Klein CK One Unisex Eau de Toilette
Calvin Klein’s freshest scent is a no-brainer for summer. It is a blend of citrusy bergamot, almost-bitter green and bergamot. This is the ultimate crowd pleaser.
- Acqua Di Parma Colonia Futura Eau de Cologne Natural Spray
This hot-weather version of Acqua di Parma’s famous Colonia has a refreshing citrus top and a botanical twist with rosemary. It is an incredibly safe move.
- Burberry Hero Eau de Toilette for Men
We’re now able to enjoy the truly good Burberry’s Hero scent, having calmed down about Adam Driver’s transformation into a centaur. Zingy bergamot is paired with a light cedar base and a crisp twang from juniper, black pepper, and juniper. This is a modern and fresh way to wear woods.
- Tom Ford Tuscan Leather Eau de Parfum Spray
This leather scent is a masterpiece by Tom Ford. The suede-soft, woody base is infused with raspberry notes that add a sweet raspberry note. This scent is perfect for late night wear.
- Dolce Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme
Dolce & Gabbana’s most iconic fragrance is peppery, bracing, and laced in zesty citrus. Imagine: Amalfi coast with a high-priced bar and ice cubes clinking.
- Calvin Klein CK Everyone Eau de Toilette
CK Everyone, the first consciously unisex Calvin Klein fragrance, is a remarkable addition. It is more than just a safe scent. It combines citrus and a subtle tea note to make CK Everyone a pleasant choice for people who prefer a light fragrance.
- Hugo Boss BOSS Bottled Eau de Toilette
Hugo Boss’ signature scent has many notes, but it is the cinnamon-tinged apples that shines through. It lends a spicy, not sickly, edge to the woody base.
- Dior Homme Eau de Toilette
Dior Homme is an iconic classic that can be worn for any occasion. It’s easy to gift, thanks to its clean, light woody base.
- Hugo Boss Orange Man Eau de Toilette
This energetic scent from Hugo Boss, while not a tribute to America’s most divisive past overlord, is an all-encompassing, crowd-pleasing and non-threatening summer scent.
- Bvlgari Man Wood Essence Eau de Parfum
Bulgari’s Man Wood Essence sounds aggressively macho but it is actually refreshingly light. It contains coriander citrus, cedar and cedar.
