Over the years, top fashion brands have been churning out citrusy, woody and fruity colognes reminiscent of the Summer. There is nothing sexier than the notes of a refreshing cologne on a man! There's some scent for every situation. Whether you heading to work, lectures, board meetings, weddings, movies, picnics or a having a date, you must strike the right notes at the right time this summer. Here is my top five colognes for men of unadulterated style!
Colonia Intensa Oud Eau de Cologne Concentrée is a new cologne by Italian fashion house, Acquadi Parma. The composition of this 2012 perfume for men came from the previous edition “ColonisIntensa”, known for its oud essential oils. The cologne opens with notes of citrus, followed by middle notes of oud, Russian coriander and amyris wood from the Hawaii and ends with musky and leathery notes. This is a refreshingly rich, elegant and vibrant cologne ideal for a soiree. Dab a little and you'd make a statement that night. Available in a 100ml eau de cologne concentree flacon.
Another citrusy cologne is Guerlain Homme L`Eau by Guerlain. It was launched in 2010. The fragrance was created by renown French perfumer Thierry Wasser, as he sought out the rejuvenation of the previous GuerlainHomme. It opens with citrusy accords of bergamot, grapefruit and mint, adding at its heart geranium, rum and base notes of lime. Ideal for working hours.
London for Men by Burberry was created by Antoine Maisondieu way back in 2006. It has remained relevant to date, perhaps due to its oriental spicy notes. Top notes are: lavender, bergamot and cinnamon; middle notes are mimose and leather; and the base ends with tobacco leaf, guaiac wood and oak moss. This is another classy scent for office hours. It could also be worn for a date.
Londinium is a limited edition cologne by English fashion brand, Molton Brown. The inspiration behind this edition is the city of London, seen as a milieu of contractions that is reminiscent of the royal parks, Saville Row, the street/city styles, pubs and night life. Bergamot and juicy berries are the striking opening notes, while myrrh and green oak moss stays at its heart. The base notes exude an intriguing blend of incense and malt whisky that remains for hours on end! Sadly, the 2012 cologne is available only in 50ml eau de toilette bottles. Are you a “man about town”? Then this cologne is for you!
Simply You for Him by Esprit is a woody aromatic perfume for men. Top notes are bergamot, neroli and black pepper; middle notes are sage, African geranium and nutmeg; while its base notes are patchouli, benzoin and cedar. This 2012 cologne is ideal for a date, weddings, movies.
