Oriental Fragrances That Will Transform You Into A 'Dark & Mysterious' Gentleman

Oriental Fragrance Featured Image

Warm. Opulent. Sensual. Oriental fragrances are exotic and mysterious, designed for a man with confidence and a thirst for adventure. With woody accords and intense notes of amber, vanilla, musk, and spices; reclusive wallflowers, be warned: steer clear of an oriental cologne.

A perfect but unique blend of exotic flowers and precious woods, Oriental colognes are extremely rich, intoxicating, and, somehow, sweet and spicy at the same time. If you’re after a fragrance that’ll turn all heads your way, an Oriental fragrance is the way to go.

Oriental Cologne FAQs

What is an Oriental fragrance?

Oriental colognes usually have unusual and exotic notes, such as ambergris, vanilla, musk, amber, and patchouli, to create an intense, warm fragrance that is vividly and intensely pleasing.

How do I apply an Oriental fragrance?

You don’t want to spray an oriental cologne all over you, as a quality oriental 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 each wrist, extremely lightly.
