The importance of a perfume is often overlooked by people, especially men. What they don’t realize is that a scent defines a man. Whether you are attending a big social gathering or going out for a movie with friends, wearing your perfume is important. However, you will have to choose your scent first. While some men prefer changing between a set of scents, others go for one and stick to it. No matter how you like to wear your perfumes, go through the list below to see this year’s top perfumes in terms of fragrance.
Giorgio Armani, Aramani Code Pour Homme
With top notes of bergamot and lemon, core notes of star anise, guaiac wood and olive blossom and end notes of leather, tobacco and tonka bean, the Aramani Code is a modern yet sophisticated, oriental scent for men.
Calvin Klein, Encounter
Opening with rum, cardamom and mandarin, before progressing into pepper, Egyptian jasmine, patchouli and cognac, Encounter ends on woody notes. The scent is hard in the start, but settles into a more fruity, sweet and finally woody essence.
At the top we have Eau De Lacoste L12.12, which comes in a chic bottle, designed to go with the Lacoste L.12.12 Polo shirt.
