2. Cool Water By Davidoff for Men – the icon
Often imitated, but never equaled. A true icon in the world of Men’s Colognes. Davidoff Cool Water is a bold fragrance that gives you strength and vitality like a cool wave. It is the quintessential ocean fragrance, for men who forge their masculinity on the waves of action. This iconic composition bursts to the surface in swells of peppermint and lavender providing intense freshness to then move out with force and intensity in heart notes of spicy coriander, jasmine, oak moss, geranium and sandalwood, finally gliding and swirling into a long, warm, sensual flow of amber and musk.
3. Paco Rabanne 1 Million – the outlaw
This high-impact fragrance creates a multifaceted signature of masculinity. The freshness of grapefruit invites you into this audacious scent, combining in the top notes with mint and blood mandarin. Striking and assertive middle notes follow with a refined yet virile combination of rose, cinnamon, and spicy notes. The base notes evoke the ultimate velvety harmony of leather, white wood, amber and Indonesian patchouli essences. Once combined, the result is not merely one fragrance but an elegant, one-of-a kind intermingling of essences.
4. Acqua Di Gio Pour Homme By Giorgio Armani – the ladykiller
**Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner**
Perhaps the most popular men’s cologne of all time, Acqua Di Gio is guaranteed to turn heads and elicit compliments. It was launched by the Design House of Giorgio Armani in 1997, and blends Jasmine, Rosemary, Hespiradic Notes, Persimmon Fruit, Marine Notes, Cedar, Patchouli, White Musk, and Rock Rose for an ideal, disctinctive smell. Perfect for daytime of evening casual use.
5. Versace Man Eau Fraiche by Gianni Versace for Men – clean and fresh
This fresh, sexy interpretation of the Versace Man fragrance is a softer, more subtly sexy version of the original. A blend of White Lemon, Rosewood, Carambola, Tarragon, Cedar Leaves, Clary Sage, Musk, Amber, and Sycamore Wood make this a scent for today’s more introspective man. Perfect for daily wear.
