Now Smell this!

Ok, I am sorry to say that most of my top ten men’s colognes are oldies, and not really available at your mainstream department store, but they are out there if you search! This is why I like them as wear one of these and people will be asking you “what are you wearing?” I really do not want to smell like every other Tom, Dick or Harry that has picked up their cologne through some advertising campaign that seems to be promoting sex, or because their significant other has bought it for them. Just realised I have something like a top twelve! I also recommend that women try these as well, I wear a lot of women’s perfumes as well and people are always intrigued as to what I am wearing. Pick one that is right for you and you will have a secret weapon of savoir faire!

So here they are not in any particular order. I haven’t included eau de cologne here because it is such a staple, that it is a given.

What is your favourite?

Monsieur Balmain by Pierre Balmain

A fresh burst of citrus heaven!

Givenchy Gentleman by Givenchy

Wonderfully Gentleman like, with notes of sandlewood, rose and leather.

Yatagan by Caron

Actually my all time favourite that takes you to the exotic east.

Eau Sauvage by Christian Dior

A wonderful fresh citrus that will bring out the savage in you (in a good way).

Vetiver by Carven or Guerlain

Nice and earthy with touches of spice

Yardley Gentleman by Yardley

The quintessential English fragrance

Grey Flannel by Geoffrey Beene

The quintessential American fragrance.

D&G by Dolce & Gabanna

A modern day classic.

YSL Pour Homme

Another fresh burst of citrus

Signoricci by Nina Ricci

Nice and subdued that has class written all over it.
