I don’t know about you guys, but I love a heady, musky fragrance all day, every day. I find that I am often drawn to men’s cologne because of their woodsy, heavier scents and usually stay away from anything too sweet or floral. And instead of just wearing this type of perfume in winter, when spicier, pungent fragrances are more “acceptable or appropriate” I love wearing this kind of perfume all year round. This is definitely a personal preference but after chatting about it with different friends and colleagues, I now know I am not alone in this.
As spring turns to summer, and the weather becomes thick and balmy, I find that heavier fragrances match the elements and it becomes my favorite time to spritz a light dusting of a musky scent on my neck, inner elbow, back of knees, and a bit in my hair for good measure. Throughout the day I love how the spicy smell rises with the heat and creates a very heady, aromatic, bold statement that builds throughout the day.
And with that said, here are my top seven sexy scents for spring and summer…
Fragrances listed clockwise:
Smoky guaiac wood, spicy incense, and earthy cedar to evoke the spirit of the African savannah.
Woody, rich scent opens with violet accord and cardamom.
Shiso leaf (also known as perilla) is the unexpected star of this scent, which is slightly spicy/fresh characteristic that’s green, earthy, and delicate all at once. It slowly opens up into spicy greens, crushed stems, and ancient exotic woods.
Plenty of herbal overtones with some citrus smell. It’s quite complex, changing as the cologne dries and gradually gets a bit of patchouli, vetiver and black pepper to it.
An aromatic woody fragrance that captures light and dark while merging notes of cedarwood atlas, vetiver, and pistachio.
Black truffle, bergamot, black orchid, black plum, noir gourmand accord, patchouli.
Long pepper, clove, vanilla, jasmine and tonka bean.
