5 Manly Perfumes To Make An Impression

  • 1. L'eau D'issey Pour Homme (Oceanic Expedition)
    1 / 5 1. L'eau D'issey Pour Homme (Oceanic Expedition)

    Citrus scents tend to be more “immediate.” With bergamot, grapefruit and essential oils from the bitter orange tree, this scent is as fresh and invigorating as the words “Oceanic Expedition” suggests. 

    HOW MUCH: $94 for 75ml, $133 for 125ml

    2 / 5 2. Ralph Lauren Polo Supreme Oud

    Just as dark colours add gravitas, so wood and incense convey sophistication. This contains oud, one of the priciest ingredients around. Redolent of power and cigars, it’s more “gentlemen’s club” than “disco bar.”

    HOW MUCH: $189 for 125ml

    Famed as an aphrodisiac, vetivier is a woodyearthy – smoky note that’s a staple of men’s fragrances. It’s the base note of this scent, paired with black basil, lavender, lime and aquatic notes – perfect if you’re not a fan of overtly citrus scents.

    4 / 5 4. Dsquared2 Wild

    Scents get richer and more complex as they get older – like you, hopefully. This pleasant fragrance isn’t as wild as it claims to be, but offers more depth and a heavier scent with wood and amber notes.

    HOW MUCH: $99 for 50ml, $129 for 100ml
