Warning! Your personal style could be killing your love life.

It’s a tough one, gents. After all, every man needs to feel comfortable in his own skin. But should that comfort come at the detriment of your love life?

It’s all about striking a balance between comfort and stylish men’s clothing. The fact is we share our lives with women. It’s vital that we good for them and attract their attention whenever possible. For this reason, a wise man does well to heed the opinions of women.

So how do you dress to impress while also maintaining a level of personal comfort and individual style?

Woman looking scared around men

Guys – I’ve done the research for you. You’re welcome.

Based on quotes from celebrities, online opinions and my own personal experience, I’ve put together a definitive list of style faux pas that women simple hate to see on men.

Let’s get started.

1. Women Hate Trousers That Are Too Tight

When asked what male style sin she hated the most, Lena Heady (Game of Thrones’ Cersei Lannister) was quoted as saying:

‘Too tight trousers. No one needs to see a man-toe wrapped in wrinkled, sweaty fabric.’ – Esquire Magazine

A gross image, right? If you think that sounds gross, imagine how women must feel.

I’ve talked a lot about trousers in the past, but let’s do a quick rundown as to how they should fit around your legs.

I cover a lot more in my article discussing trouser fit in depth. Click here to check it out.

As far as thighs go, you want to be able to pinch about 1 inch of fabric on either side of the thigh. You can afford to take about 1/2 inch while doing this, but any less means that it’s way too tight.

By the same token, any more than one inch is too loose – time for the tailor to take a look.

They should have a slight taper to give a narrower look the closer they get to the ankle.

However, if you’re a big guy, you may want to opt for a straight cut down to the hem. The reason is that if you rely on the taper, you’ll emphasize the gut.

Proportional balance is key!

2. Most Women Hate Leather Trousers And Ugg Boots

Thankfully I haven’t seen this style trend in the wild.

However, knowing it exists sends shivers down my spine. Gentlemen, please avoid this combo at all costs.

Honestly? I can’t think of a single instance where this would look good.

It should go without saying that leather trousers & ugg boots are horrifying.

3. All Women Hate Socks And Flip Flops

I have to admit – this one is more common than the dreaded leather/ugg combo.

To be clear: that doesn’t make it any better.

Gents, you need to make up your mind – are you cold, or are you hot? Socks are meant to be worn to protect your feet and keep them warm along with a pair of shoes. Sandals are designed to keep your feet open and cool around the house.

I’m not surprised this is among the clothes women hate – it’s never attractive. In fact, it looks douchy.

4. Women Dislike Too Much Cologne

There’s a fine line between having a seductive smell and simply stinking up the place.

Now, I love fragrances. I’ve put out several videos and articles talking about the most popular men’s colognes. However, nothing in excess is good.

You’re going to want to apply no more than three squirts to some of the heat-producing areas on the body (wrists, behind the ears, neck).

Ideally, keep it behind the neck – that way the scent isn’t assailing whoever is holding a conversation with you. However, once you go your separate ways, they’ll catch enough of your scent to compel them to take a second look at you.

5. Never Wear Worn-Out Underwear

When’s the last time you update your underwear? Are they faded?

Gentleman – this is not the way to go.

Imagine you’re getting hot and heavy with a woman and her undergarments are worn-out, saggy, and filled with holes. You’d run the other way, right?

Guys – I’m sorry to break it to you but women feel the same way about your underwear.

This problem is easily fixed.

How? Simple. Every 6 months (or sooner) replace them.

The best company to use for your replacement is SHEATH. Whether you’re working out and being active or on a hot date, SHEATH will help stop the sweat and keep you comfortable and fresh no matter where the day or night takes you.

6. Women Hate When You Wear Too Many Accessories

The right number of accessories can do a lot for a man’s look.

The question is this: How much is TOO much?

Keep it simple – try to stick with about three accessories.

Let’s put it this way: If you’re wearing three necklaces, a watch, two bracelets on each wrist, and a ring then you might want to tone it down a bit.

7. Most Women Hate Baseball Caps

You could do worse than baseball caps.

They’re appropriate for the most casual situations – especially if you’re headed to the stadium to support your home team.

However, too many guys overdo it – and a lot of it has to do with hair loss.

Considering that 1 in 5 men deal with baldness, it’s no surprise that the baseball cap – cheap and readily available – is overused.

Take the necessary steps to protect yourself and your hair. Otherwise, consider a more stylish hat option. A flat cap is an exceptional replacement as it can be used in the same contexts as a baseball cap.

You have options, you just need to find them.

8. Women Hate Faded Jeans That Fray

Gents, get those jeans hemmed.

Just because they’re meant to be casual doesn’t mean that they should look as though they were pulled from a dumpster.

Care for them the same way you would every other tool in your closet.

9. Women Never Like Too Many Patterns

I don’t agree whatsoever – a man can wear as many patterns as he pleases.

The challenge is in making them work. It’s much easier than you think, actually – It’s just a matter of keeping them different. No two similar patterns should be used beside each other. When it comes to patterns, variety is the spice of life.

Sure, you can use similar patterns, just make sure they are well apart from one another.

10. Women Hate Low-Hanging Jeans

When I say low-slung, I mean jeans that are low to the point your underwear is showing.

As far as style sins go, low-hanging jeans are a capital offense.

This is never a good look under any circumstances. If you are doing it, please consider transitioning toward a more appropriate fit in the trousers.

11. Sunglasses Indoors/At Night Make Women Hate You

Unless you’re Jack Nicholson, the only thing you’ll achieve by doing this is looking arrogant and stupid.

Sunglasses are meant to be worn… well… in the sun.

12. High-Waisted Red Trousers

Gents, do I even need to go into why this doesn’t work?

I don’t even know anyone that wears high-waisted red pants… and I’m glad.

Please, dump them.

13. Deep V-Necks

These shirts are useful as undershirts.

If you’re the kind of guy who hates it when his undershirt shows through his unbuttoned collar, something like a deep V is perfectly acceptable.

In short, it gives the illusion that you aren’t wearing anything beneath the dress shirt all the while keeping sweat and skin away from the expensive shirt material.

crew neck and V-neck T-shirts
There is no one on Earth who appreciates your man-cleavage.

However, it does not function well by itself.

Man-cleavage? Yeah, no one needs to see that.

14. Women Actually Hate Short Sleeves

Being slim myself, I prefer long sleeves. I like rolling them just under the elbow to give my arms that extra oomph.

Pro tip: You can do something similar with short sleeves too, though. Just roll them up once or twice, and it’ll add emphasis to your upper arms and shoulders.

15. Running & Hiking Shoes As Everyday Wear

They have their place in your closet. They’re practical for the gym and, well, hiking of course.

man wearing running shoes jpg
A pair of suede loafers are great for hotter climates, but you can easily pair them with any casual outfit year-round.

For everyday wear, instead, consider investing in a pair of stylish sneakers or some suede boots. If you’re feeling bold, go for some men’s loafers. It’s an easy way to dramatically upgrade your casual game.

16. Women Hate Dress Shoes With White Socks

Gentlemen … why would you do this? I simply don’t get it.

This is an easily avoidable, but all-too-common mistake that men make. For some odd reason, a lot of men seem to think this combination looks good.

I’m here to tell you you’re wrong. Plain and simple.

The must-follow rule is that dress shoes go with dress socks – no exceptions.

17. Crocs

Crocs are a sin… but damn, they’re comfortable.

Believe it or not – I own a pair of crocs myself.

However, even I won’t dare to wear them outside the house. They look tacky and, well, plain ugly.

What a man does in the privacy of his own home is his business – I’m not going to judge you for it. But the minute I see you out and about sporting a pair of crocs with a suit – that’s when the judgments start. Trust me, there’ll be a lot of them.

18. 98% of Women Hate Graphic Tees

We might think they’re hilarious, but the ladies don’t. Believe it or not, a solid t-shirt is more potent as casual wear than any design can be.

graphic shirt

A side note on this one. Women want a guy who’s mature and acts like a man. Wearing a crude graphic t-shirt might get your friends laughing, but women are just gonna see it as a sign that you’re more of a boy instead of the gentleman she deserves.

19. Stained Or Torn Clothes Make You Unattractive

You can do better. If it’s old and looks that way, then throw it away. Tattered clothes have no place in a stylish man’s closet.

You don’t have to be super-rich to wear nice looking clothes. A good wash and a firm iron can do wonders for the aesthetic of cheap clothing. However, if it’s torn and tattered just throw it out.

20. Women Hate Cargo Shorts

I’ve talked about this before. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a lady who appreciates those things.

Have you ever seen stylish cargo shorts? Neither have I.

man wearing cargo pants with accessories

If you must wear shorts, then find some plain ones that forego the obnoxious pockets.

21. Women Hate Ill-Fitting Jeans

I’ve heard ladies say that Americans have a nasty habit of wearing oversized jeans, traveling abroad, and accusing other men who know what they’re doing of playing for the other team.

This is incredibly immature and ignorant. First off, I’d like to apologize on behalf of my countrymen.

Secondly, allow me to offer some quick tips for well-fitting jeans for men…

  • They should stay put without a belt.
  • If you can perfectly denote the outline of your legs and butt, it’s too tight.
  • If you can pinch anywhere between half an inch to an inch at any point along the leg, it’s a good fit.

Summary – Clothes Women Hate On Men

  1. Trousers That Are Too Tight
  2. Leather Trousers And Ugg Boots
  3. Socks And Flip Flops
  4. Too Much Cologne
  5. Worn-Out Underwear
  6. Too Many Accessories
  7. Baseball Caps
  8. Jeans That Fray
  9. Too Many Patterns
  10. Low-Slung Jeans
  11. Wearing Sunglasses Indoors Or At Night
  12. High-Waisted Red Trousers
  13. Deep V-Necks
  14. Short Sleeves
  15. Running & Hiking Shoes
  16. Dress Shoes With White Socks
  17. Crocs
  18. Graphic Tees
  19. Tattered Clothes
  20. Stained Or Torn Clothes
  21. Cargo Shorts
  22. Wide-Legged Jeans

While much of this seems like common sense, many of these mishaps are all-too-common. Gentlemen, if you’re looking to get started as a stylish man, you can start by avoiding these mistakes.

Horizontal vs. Vertical Stripes | Fact and Fiction About Striped Clothing

Print and pattern color bright striped suit pinstripe red street style
man in pinstripe suit

Q: I’ve heard in the past that horizontal stripes make someone look wider and vertical stripes make them look taller and thinner. But I keep seeing studies going back and forth whether this is true. Who do I believe?

A: Three decades or so of research on this question have yielded inconsistent results. A more recent study seems to show that this is because the answer is actually more complicated than we all would like.


There’s a famous optical illusion called the Helmholtz Illusion, discovered by a man named Helmholtz in 1867.

  • Which of these squares looks thinner and taller than the other? Most people would say the left square looks thinner and taller.

But that seems to go against the conventional wisdom that horizontal stripes make a person look fatter/wider. Wouldn’t it be the other way around?

Horizontal stripes
  • A number of studies have tested this effect and have found conflicting results. Why would fashion work differently than this famous optical illusion?
  • Three Japanese researchers noticed some interesting patterns in the previous research. They all presented pictures of models wearing either horizontal or vertical stripes. However, they weren’t using the same models: some were fat and some were thin. Additionally, they were all shaded differently. And finally, they were presented in various orders.
  • These researchers decided there were multiple factors at play here and published a study testing their hypotheses in the journal i-Perception in 2013.
  • The researchers did a number of studies testing the possibility that three factors were influencing all the previous research on this subject that has been conducted:

Whether the model is slim or fat.

Whether previous judgments of other people influence later judgments of different people.

Whether judgments are so varied between people that the whole thing isn’t very useful.

Vertical Stripes suit
Vertical stripes


  • 31 undergraduate students (63% female) were recruited for the study.
  • The students were placed in a chair and put their chin in a chin rest that ensured that their eyes were a certain distance from a computer screen.
  • A number of computer images were flashed in the screens depicting people wearing clothing with either horizontal or vertical lines.
    • The size of the images was digitally altered to be either slim or wide.
  • Two figures were shown side-by-side for 1.8 seconds. One had horizontal stripes and the other had vertical stripes. Then, participants were to judge which of the images were fatter and press a key indicating their response.
  • This method was done 20 times with slim figures and 20 times with fat figures, or with the fat figures first and then the slim figures.


So what do you think – is conventional wisdom true for fashion, or is the Helmholtz Illusion the main driving factor?

  • The conventional wisdom was not found to be true. Horizontal stripes don’t make people look fatter and vertical stripes don’t make people look slimmer and taller.
  • BUT sometimes the stripes didn’t really make a difference at all.

Which factors influenced whether the Helmholtz Illusion held true for the figures?

  • Size of the Model:
  • YES. Slender models look even thinner with horizontal stripes (supporting the Helmholtz Illusion and going against conventional wisdom).
  • But this effect was not as strong for the wide models – for wide models, the type of stripe BY ITSELF actually didn’t have as much of an influence at all.
  • Order of Presentation:
  • YES. Here’s an interesting result. When SLENDER models were shown first to people, and then wide models, the Helmholtz Illusion was strongest of all (Horizontal stripes make people seem taller and slenderer) for both groups. This applied to both fat and slender images. Again, conventional wisdom does not seem to hold.
  • When the wide models were shown first, the type of stripe did NOT seem to matter for anyone.
  • Variance Between Observers:
  • YES. Significantly, the researchers found that, even though there were noticeable results when they compared averages, there was a wide variety of results across all participants.

So how do we interpret the results of this experiment? Here are some important conclusions that can be inferred from the results:

In no case was the conventional wisdom found to be true. Horizontal stripes did not, on the whole, make someone look wider. Vertical stripes, on the whole, did not make a person look taller and slimmer.

In fact, where there was an effect, it supported the opposite conclusion.

Horizontal stripes made slender people look taller and slenderer.

man in sweatshirt with horizontal stripes

On the fatter models, the kinds of stripes made much less difference.

People’s judgments seemed to be more influenced by what models they had previously judged.

For some reason (that the authors did not fully understand) when participants judged a large group of slender people first, the Helmholtz Illusion got very strong.

What does this mean for laypeople?

It means that when we view a person, we are mentally comparing them to people we have already seen.

Here’s the (very strange but scientifically supported) bottom line:

  • If a fat person is going to an event full of thin people, horizontal stripes may actually make them look slimmer and taller.

Why? The researchers weren’t sure.

Finally, there was another big take-away:

There was so much variation between participants in the study that the researchers concluded that stripes may not really, on the whole, make that huge of a difference.

This would explain why all the previous studies since the ‘80s were inconsistent.

This makes it seem like, unless you want to make a calculated, complex decision based on the results in this study, you might make your fashion selections based on other factors instead of whether the stripes are horizontal or vertical.

Whenever science doesn’t seem to go one way or the other, I say trust your own personal judgment.

Harvey Specter Style

harvey specter
harvey specter sitting in the office dressed in suit

There’s a lot to envy about Harvey Specter.

The outrageous confidence, the power, the prestige…

The sharp comebacks… and the ultra-sharp suits.

Harvey dresses like he does everything else – strategically.

“People respond to how we’re dressed…

So like it or not, this is what you have to do.”

Everyone’s appearance sends a message – and everything about his says loud and clear:

“I’m not about caring, I’m about winning.”

Of course, he does care – he cares about Mike, he cares about Donna, and he cares about his personal code of ethics. But that’s not the message he chooses to send. There’s nothing soft about his look.

”If they think you care, they’ll walk all over you.”

Read on to find out how to get the sharp and powerful Harvey Specter look.

Okay, let’s break this down. What are the main elements of Harvey Specter’s style strategy? Number 1, of course, has to be…

1. The Suit

harvey specter style suit

Harvey is virtually ALWAYS seen in an expensive suit. Gabriel Macht, who plays him, says: ‘He’s a man of style… we really wanted him to be this man’s man. A real masculine, strong, Steve McQueen-type of guy who could pull off a three piece suit and make it a modern thing, wide lapels and all.’

How does Harvey pull off his suits? Using two things you can learn right here at RMRS – confidence and the style pyramid of fit, fabric, and function. The fit of his suits is always on point, which takes extra effort for men with a tall body type (Gabriel Macht is 6’0.5?/183cm.) The fabrics are top quality – early season suits were mostly dark high twisted worsted wool, but recently he’s wearing silk-wool blends that add an unusual shine.

And as for function (appropriateness for the situation)? As a workaholic hotshot lawyer, Harvey lives for high-powered formal situations where a suit is required. He doesn’t suit up when it’s outright inappropriate… which means we see him in something else a good 2% of the time.

Harvey has a medium contrast complexion and dresses well for it, most often pairing gray, charcoal, and occasionally navy or black suits with white shirts. Gray and white form a sleek, classic combination that shows he means serious business.

Where a man with just one or two suits might stick to solid colors and maybe a pinstripe, Harvey has a wardrobe of different suit patterns including sharkskin, Prince of Wales checks and stripes – he prefers the bolder rope stripes to pinstripes (pinstripes are just one thread wide, rope stripes are several.)

He wears a slim fit with high armholes and strong structured shoulders – highlighting his athletic physique. Wide peak lapels give him a powerful broad-shouldered ‘v’ shape – the key to wearing them like he does is to get the gorge of the lapel not too high and not too low. If it peaks out over your shoulders, it is too much, and if it is too low it looks too old school.

Peak lapels are more formal – he sets himself apart by wearing them (except sometimes when he’s in a three-piece suit, which is more formal anyway). Because they’re more common on a tuxedo, on a business suit they suggest authority and/or arrogance.

Taking a deeper dive into suit jacket details, the big flap pockets on his jackets are a little unusual with peak lapels; jetted pockets are more normal.

You might expect to see a three-button suit on him because he’s a ‘buttoned up’ character and it would suit his tall athletic build. However, Harvey knows TWO buttons are the best choice for a single-breasted suit with peak lapels. It’s a classic elegant look that’s been around since the 1920s – two buttons leave room for longer lapels and accentuate them more.

His jacket cuffs, on the other hand, are as formal and buttoned-up as they get, with four buttons on each. The more buttons on the cuffs, the more formal the jacket, with single buttons denoting a sports jacket.

Pants are slim but not tight, with an ironed crease down the front, no pleats, no break and usually no cuffs. This suits his strict character – very neat and no fuss.

2. The Shirts

harvey specter style shirt

Harvey mostly wears plain white dress shirts – again, the most formal color. He also favors pale blue, and occasionally a gingham or stripe. The tall semi-spread collars accentuate his ‘v’ shape.

His shirts are very well fitted and always let a sliver of cuff show outside his jacket. He usually prefers simple classic button cuffs, but occasionally goes for the fancier French cuffs and cufflinks.

3. The Accessories

“Get your skinny tie out of my face and get to work.”

Harvey’s ties are always silk – navy grenadine is a favorite. Dark purple and black are other favorite colors. His look is VERY monochrome – it’s part of the character.

His ties vary between 3 and 3.5 inches wide, a classic width. He doesn’t wear anything too young and trendy. His wider ties and lapels contrast with Mike’s skinny ones and make him look more powerful.

He favors the full Windsor tie knot – a powerful, formal, ‘serious business’ knot that marks him out as a guy who knows how to dress and looks great with his wide lapels and semi-spread collars.

He’s rarely seen without a dimple in his ties, showing he knows how to dress and pays attention to the details. The one time his tie dimple is off center, Donna notices something is wrong!

With a tux he wears a diamond-pointed bow tie instead of the normal shape. That’s quirkier than you’d expect from him, but it’s like the peak lapels – sharp and pointed – which suits his aggressive and incisive mind.

He always wears a pocket square in a square Presidential fold, usually white or gray. A white pocket square in a square fold is as formal as they come and suits his businesslike, no-nonsense image. You won’t see him with a flower in his lapel – this is a hard and sharp look, nothing soft or romantic on this determinedly unemotional guy. To finish the look, he chooses simple and bold metal cufflinks.

Earlier in the series, Harvey was seen wearing a bold statement chronograph watch with a leather strap – a status symbol meant to mark him out as a successful man. The watch has since disappeared because of the technical constraints of filming for TV. Gabriel Macht says:

‘As great as the show is, it really doesn’t lend itself to detail. Other than some necklaces you might see Jessica wear, you don’t see any jewelry.’

#4. The Shoes

harvey specter in suit and dress shoes

Because of the nature of TV, you don’t often see Harvey’s shoes, and they’re not a big focus of his costume. He’s been seen in black cap-toed derbies, and black or brown oxford brogues – all classic smart dress shoes, although brown full brogues are a bit more casual than you’d expect from him.

5. Casual Clothing

harvey specter casual white suit

Aside from the suit, he’s been seen in a classic black button-down shirt; well-fitting jeans; a white or heathered grey henley; beige chinos; and a navy v-neck and coat over a white shirt. (Not a casual shirt, by the way, just a dress shirt like he’d wear to the office – showing his wardrobe, like his life, is mostly work.)

6. The Hair

harvey specter haircut

In 2011 Gabriel Macht said of Harvey’s original slicked-back do, “It’s supposed to be the modern version of the old-style man’s haircut, sort of like Gregory Peck or Cary Grant.”

But as more sides of the character have emerged his hair has evolved- now it’s more vertical, but still strict and structured, featuring a tight side-part (on the left side) with a subtle pompadour in the front.

To get this look, you need the sides cut short (not buzzed) and some length on top.

Run a strong hold gel (or pomade for less shine) through towel dried hair then blow dry on a low heat while combing the front upwards. The longer you blow-dry the front, the more volume you’ll get.

Then apply more gel and use your comb to cut the side-part and sculpt the front hair up and back. Fix with a little hairspray.

If you prefer his earlier slicked-back style, you want a similar cut with squared-off sideburns and a square neckline and shaved part. Again, apply some gel to your hair before blow-drying, then comb it back with pomade and set with hairspray.

I don’t recommend that every man dresses exactly like Harvey Specter. It’s a very stark monochromatic look, and for guys with more fun and warmth in their personalities, it might not suit you. You can emulate his confidence without exactly copying his look.

What I DO recommend is that you copy Harvey Specter in dressing strategically. Think about what YOUR message is, and make sure every stitch on your body and every hair on your head communicates it. 

‘Get it through your head – first impressions last.’

ONE Cologne Men Should Buy? Jeremy Fragrance Recommendations


If you’re a stylish man…

Could you own a single

  • Dress shirt?
  • Pair of shoes?
  • Necktie?

I wouldn’t.


There’s no clothing item that’s good for ALL situations (color, pattern & formality come into play).


It’s different for colognes – or fragrances.

How many colognes does a man really need?

The answer? One.

One cologne can rule them all…just ask Jeremy Fragrance.

Here’s what he has to say about buying the perfect men’s fragrance.

Why Use A Men’s Fragrance?

jeremy fragrance success

Style isn’t just about clothing. True style encompasses everything about yourself that you show others: your confidence, your communication skills, and your smell.

Your scent is an invisible component of your personal style. It can influence how people – from strangers in the subway to colleagues at work – perceive you.

That’s where fragrances come in. Fragrance is the generic term for grooming sprays that improve one’s own scent. The majority of fragrances are perfumes.

Certain perfumes have a lighter, more masculine smell and are better suited for men. They’re commonly known as colognes (especially in North America). In the end though…they’re all types of fragrances.

But what’s shocking is the fact that 80% of males don’t regularly use a men’s fragrance. If you’re one of them, chances are your reason might be:

  • You’re not familiar with the basics and terminology of fragrances
  • You don’t know which product to buy (or where to start)
  • You’re afraid of doing it wrong or smelling bad
  • Fragrances are “unmanly” or only for women

Those reasons share a common ground – ignorance. So there’s only one solution to this kind of problem, and that’s getting information. You want good solid info on fragrances as well as how to choose the right fragrance for you. Great knowledge means great power.

Now I know this will take time. You can read up, watch a few videos, learn the opinions of experts. But you won’t immediately feel like making your own choice. You may not want to pay lots of money for a risky product…or products.

Maybe you’d rather play it safe and find a “universal” men’s fragrance. Why not? We all have busy lives. We spend enough energy deciding which suit, tie or dress shoes to wear every morning. Is it okay to stick with just one fragrance?

Actually – yes! Take the advice of my friend Jeremy who runs the Jeremy Fragrance YouTube channel. Jeremy is a scent connoisseur with the ultimate passion for fragrances. He’s the first guy who’d tell you that men can use fragrance to come off stronger and more confident wherever they go, whoever they’re with.

Below are Jeremy’s nominations for the one fragrance you’ll need…

Jeremy Fragrance: Category #1 – All-Around Fragrance

Remember what fragrances are at their core…a group of chemicals.

You spray them at a distance of 3-6 inches from the skin. You let the fragrance strike the warm parts of your body (neck, shoulders, chest, forearms, inner elbows, etc.) so as to mix with your body chemistry.

But if a product isn’t versatile enough – you can’t count on it alone. It needs to survive in both extreme heat and cold…or else the aromatic chemicals may evaporate or lose their strength over time.

Check out Dior Sauvage EDT

So when it comes to an all-around fragrance, you need a jack of all trades. It can pass as a date fragrance or fragrance for formal occasions. But it’s not top-notch in any particular area. That being said…it probably won’t matter as long as you smell awesome!

dior sauvage notes

Jeremy Fragrance’s Recommendation: Sauvage Cologne for Men (Christian Dior)

This cologne has distinct notes of Calabrian bergamot and pepper. The scent isn’t too imposing and gives off the vibe of breezy, open fields. Johnny Depp has appeared in ads for this fragrance.

Jeremy Fragrance: Category #2 – Best Fragrance For Work

Most of us are pretty career-driven. We go to work each day with big goals and aspirations at the back of our minds. I’ll be CEO someday. I’ll be making six figures. I’ll be successful in this field.

That’s a good mindset. But doing the same menial tasks, not being challenged, earning points from the higher-ups…it can feel un-stimulating for now. It can cause you to lose focus. Or lose sight of the prize.

So what can you do to stay alert and excited while spending hours at the office? You’d be surprised. Certain fragrances can actually heighten your alertness during tasks that require a lot of concentration.

Prada LHomme EDT

Those scents can also reduce levels of fatigue or anxiety. They let time pass more quickly for you as you’re no longer thinking about the time. You just do what’s required of you productively…thanks to an external stimulus.

Jeremy Fragrance’s Recommendation: Prada L’Homme for Men (Prada)

This is the fragrance to wear to the office during daytime hours. It’s a combination of iris and amber (classic Prada ingredients) which is similar to the smell of fresh fabric softeners. You can say it’s more “professional” since it’s not citrusy-sharp but an airy, powdery, and elegant scent.

Jeremy Fragrance: Category #3 – Best Fragrance For Dating

A man sees but a woman smells. That’s right. Studies in Europe prove that a man’s scent is the #1 factor for the ladies in a potential partner.

It does make sense. Women are known to have more complex senses of smell (whereas men tend to only categorize smells as either “good” or “bad”).

That can explain why women enjoy getting flowers for gifts. Or why they might have a variety of perfumes in their homes. In fact, a scent can do wonders for a woman’s mood when you interact with her.

Viktor and Rolf Spicebomb

One experiment reveals that women would more likely give their number to a guy they met in a pleasant-smelling area – compared to a not-so-pleasant area. So imagine how much more impact a man’s body smell has! You’ll want to take advantage.

Jeremy Fragrance’s Recommendations:

Versace Eros Cologne for Men (Versace)

Versace Eros

This cologne is tailor-made for seduction and grabbing attention. It invigorates the ladies’ senses with a fusion of mint oil, Italian lemon, green apple, and geranium flowers. Put it on to give yourself maximum confidence when you approach women at bars or public places.

Spicebomb Extreme Cologne for Men (Viktor & Rolf)

You can call it a “big fat mass of sweetness” because that’s what it is – consisting of vanilla, lavender, tobacco, and caraway. It’s not as aggressive as the Versace Eros, but it draws women to you in more intimate settings. Picture yourself cuddling your partner by the fireplace inside a snow-covered wooden house. The Spicebomb will add to that romance.
