Smelling great is an all-season necessity. From Marc Jacobs perfumes to Tom Ford, brands love to own each season. Yet, with each season it’s fun to change-up the way we represent ourselves through the sense of smell. This applies to a typical British summer as well (if we can call it that). In this post, we’ll be gazing at some of our favourite perfumes for men that are suited to the season of summer.
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille
Embracing notes of tobacco leaf and vanilla ginger, the iconic Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford is a powerful and opulent perfume suited for modern sophisticated gentlemen. It’s a classy wear and while moodier than others on the list, it’s appropriate for late night formal events and cocktail parties.
Suitable for: A person looking for a woodier and more intruiging smell that elevates class.
Creed Aventus is one of the most recognised names in perfumery and certainly stands out as a safe option if you’re looking for a spirited and contemporary perfume. With notes of lemon, pink pepper, apple, jasmine & patchouli, cedarwood and others — you won’t go unnoticed with Aventus.
Suitable for: A person looking for an established perfume that delivers on its performence and captivating notes.
D.S. & Durga Amber Kiso
A delicate and woody scent emanates from D.S. & Durga’s Amber Kiso eau de parfum, named after the fabled forest in Japan prized by samurai. The eau de parfum has top notes of Japanese cedar, incense, sawara cypress combined with heartier notes of iris, patchouli, and asahi zuru maple.
Suitable for: A person looking for refined perfume that whispers elegance and confidence.
Creed Royal Water
With Royal Water, Creed offers another alternative to the well-known Aventus. As a tribute to the next generation of Windsor dynasty, Olivier Creed created the perfume with the intent of evoking sophistication, youth and charm. As far as I am concerned, it does just that. Featuring cedarwood and musk in its base notes, verbena, mandarin, and bergamot in its top notes, this blend is well suited for summer wear.
Suitable for: A person looking for a graceful and lively perfume for the summer.
Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza
With its citrusy, fresh, and yet masculine notes, Colonia Essenza by Acqua di Parma is the perfect perfume for summer. With its distinct top notes of lemon and orange, which are complemented by the vetiver and patchouli base notes, this perfume makes a wonderful summer perfume.
Suitable for: A person looking for lively, masculine perfume that strikes well with its citrus accords.
