While some may think floral fragrances are solely for women, this is simply not the case. Floral fragrances, when blended with traditionally masculine scents, can be refreshing and clean.
Plus, women love the scent of floral fragrances, so when you spritz yourself with a manly floral cologne, you may just find yourself irresistible to the ladies.
How to properly apply cologne
You don’t want to spray cologne all over you, as a quality strong fragrance will intensify over time. You just want a light spray on your neck and wrists; however, don’t spray one wrist and then rub your wrists together, as this will lessen the longevity of your cologne. Spray your neck and each wrist, extremely lightly.
If you really want to enhance your fragrance in warmer weather and you’re wearing shorts, try a light spray behind each knee too.
Velvet Rose & Oud
For the magnetic man...
Jo Malone’s Velvet Rose & Oud is magnetic and fresh. With key notes of clove, oud, and damask rose, this fragrance is an opulent floral, with spicy, honey facets, giving it an overall clean masculine scent.
Rose Of No Man's Land
For the sophisticated man...
Delicate yet sophisticated, Byredo’s Rose Of No Man’s Land has top notes of pink pepper and Turkish rose petals and a heart of raspberry blossom and Turkish rose absolute. The base of papyrus and white amber round out the fragrance to give it a masculine edge.
For the sensual man...
Whilst technically Dior Homme is a spicy woody fragrance, there are touches of floral scents present. Bold, masculine, and sensual, Dior Homme has lavender and iris notes present to soften the otherwise strong cologne and the result is an exquisite fragrance that’ll leave the ladies wanting more.
For the modern man...
Carnal Flower is a masculine and modern fragrance inspired by the exquisite natural scent of Tuberose flowers on a bed of white musks. With key notes of green aquatic, ylang-ylang, jasmine absolute, orange blossom absolute, tuberose absolute, coconut, and white musks, this fragrance is rich yet fresh.
For the nuanced man...
Diptyque’s Vetyverio is a mainly woody fragrance but it has wonderful subtle floral hints. With key notes of vetiver, rose, grapefruit, mandarin, and patchouli, Vetyverio is complex and nuanced but perfectly balanced.
