Before I reveal my top notes, let’s start with some basics first! We’ll cover what fragrances are, the differences between different types of fragrances, and a breakdown of fragrance notes.

What Are Fragrances?

It’s a complex mixture of what people in the industry refer to as raw materials. These raw materials can be extracts from natural sources or synthetic raw materials.

Oils are dissolved in a solvent (usually alcohol), to preserve a pleasant concoction of scents. The higher the concentration of oils – the greater the strength of the fragrance. The strength determines how long an application of the fragrance lasts on your skin.

 

Difference Between EDT, EDP, And Cologne

Concentration and longevity of different fragrance types.

Fragrances come in many forms and are called different names but generally fall into these categories:

  • Eau Fraiche – The most diluted version of fragrance, usually with 1% – 3% perfume oil in alcohol and water. Usually lasts for less than an hour. 
  • Cologne (Eau de Cologne) – The oldest term for perfume, used in North America for masculine scents. Light, fresh and fruity, typically composed of 2% – 4% perfume oils in alcohol and water. Tend to be used in fragrances for younger people. Usually lasts for about 2 hours.
  • Toilette (Eau de Toilette) – A light spray composition with 5% – 15% pure perfume essence dissolved in alcohol. Usually lasts for about 3 hours.
  • Perfume (Eau de Parfum) – Historically genderless, used to describe both men’s and women’s fragrances.  The best term used to describe a fragrance. Contains 15% – 20% pure perfume essence and lasts for about 5 to 8 hours.
  • Perfume – A corruption of the Latin phrase per fumum (through smoke). The most concentrated and expensive of all fragrance options. Slightly oilier, perfume, or parfum, is composed of 20% – 30% pure perfume essence. A single application of perfume can last up to 24 hours. 

 

What Are Fragrance Notes?

Simply put, fragrance notes are the scents that you can smell in a certain fragrance. You know how sometimes a fragrance smells just like an orange, or vanilla, or leather… That’s all because of the note of that particular scent.

There are three categories of fragrance notes: Top notes, middle notes, and base notes.

Fragrance notes breakdown – Top, Middle and Base notes.

  • Top note – The top or basic note is the initial, lighter smell of the fragrance that hits the nose first. The top note lasts around 15 minutes – 2 hours.
    Typical top and middle notes are various floral scents, fruity scents, marine/aquatic notes, and spices such as cinnamon. Examples of these notes include citruses, powdery scents, and light florals.
  • Medium note – Also referred to as the middle or heart notes – showcases the main elements of the fragrance. These notes develop after the top note clears – around 30 minutes and can last 3-5 hours after being sprayed.
    Heart notes most often include heavier floral scents. The middle and base notes are the extra layers of scents that give the fragrance its distinctive smell.
  • Base note – The last to develop and helps fix the fragrance to the skin. This is where you will smell the bolder notes of the scent, which become more noticeable when the fragrance has been on the skin for a while. Base notes lay the foundation for the fragrance and will determine how long the fragrance lasts on your skin. Base notes tend to last from 5 to 10 hours. Typical base notes are sandalwood, vetiver, vanilla, tar, leather, smoke, tobacco, and musk.

Now that we understand the basics, let’s go over the common fragrance notes that will make you more attractive in the eyes (and noses!) of women.

 

Attractive Fragrance Note #1 – Vetiver

Vetiver is a green, aromatic, and woody fragrance. It is one of the most popular notes in fragrances, not only for men but for women as well.

Even though it’s present in fragrances for both genders, it is more associated with men’s fragrances, because of its dark and earthy root quality. It often reminds of freshly cut grass, a cigar lounge, or your grandfather’s favorite barbershop – and it’s those masculine qualities in the Vetiver note that women find attractive.

Most common Vetiver fragrances include Lalique Encre Noir, Tom Ford Grey Vetiver, Creed Original Vetiver, Guerlain Vetiver, and Terre D’Hermes Eau Intense Vetiver.

A great vetiver fragrance is sure to bring you compliments.

 

Attractive Fragrance Note #2 – Citrus Notes

Nothing says fresh and fruity like a proper citrus fragrance. Be honest gentlemen, who here doesn’t enjoy a juicy mandarin, or grapes during the warm parts of the year?

The same goes for fragrances – the freshness of citrus notes are sure to capture attention from women who pass you by on a hot summer day.

Women, in particular, love citrus fragrances. Not only for themselves, but for their man as well. It makes you smell and look more energized, crisp, fresh, immaculate, and clean – like a nice summer breeze. So it’s no wonder Citrus notes are among the most attractive fragrance notes!

However, you’ve got to be careful when it comes to citrus notes. If you pick the wrong fragrance, you just may come off smelling like bad bubblegum – which is something that you want to avoid.

And to make sure you don’t make the mistake of picking up the wrong fragrance, here are some popular citrus fragrances that turn heads and are compliment getters –  Orange Spice by Creed, Chrome by Azzaro, Neroli Portofino by Tom Ford, Essenza di Colonia by Aqua di Parma and Sauvage by Dior

Citrus notes were always known as some of the most attractive fragrance notes because of their freshness.

 

Attractive Fragrance Note #3 – Aquatic Notes

Coming hand in hand with the citrus notes, aquatic notes remind women of the ocean, carefree days when everything is just perfect.

With aquatic notes, you give yourself the freedom to be the adventurous, outdoor man who goes out there and does what he wants – when he wants. Do I even have to go into detail about why that would attract women? I didn’t think so.

An important thing to remember is that aquatic fragrances usually aren’t too heavy, since their purpose is to make you feel cooler and fresh during summer. So you might want to be careful incorporating them in other parts of the year.

And to make it simple, here are five aquatic fragrances that will make a girl fall in love with the way you smell when you’re walking by the beach – Cool Water by Davidoff, Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani, Invictus Aqua by Paco Rabanne, Aqva Pour Homme Marina by Bvlgari

Nothing beats a hot summer day like the beach and summer breeze – why not smell like that and grab attention anywhere you go?

 

Attractive Fragrance Note #4 – Tobacco

Tobacco… A scent that still makes a lot of people cringe. And to be honest, there are reasons. A lot of people associate tobacco with their yellow-toothed aunt or uncle who smoked two packs a day.

But, what a lot of people don’t realize, that’s not what tobacco smells like. Especially in fragrances.

It’s easy to overlook tobacco fragrances and the note itself, especially because of the wide range of notes available.

But tobacco note smells like a warm cabin during a cold winter day – cozy, aromatic, and perfect for snuggling up next to somebody special. Also, make sure to check out the Top 10 Best Smelling Winter Colognes.

And that is why tobacco is definitely one of the most attractive fragrance notes that women love to smell on a man.

The great thing about tobacco is that it pretty much works with all other fragrance families as well. Some of the most popular tobacco fragrances include – Spicebomb by Viktor&Rolf, Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford, Gucci Gucci By Gucci Pour Homme, L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme by Issey Miyake, and The Dreamer by Versace.

Tobacco fragrances are ridiculously underrated. If you don’t have one, make sure to pick it up ASAP!

 

Attractive Fragrance Note #5 – Wood Notes

Wood fragrance notes have been used for centuries in men’s fragrances. And for a good reason.

Wood notes are just what you expect them to be – natural, earthy, and elegant.

It’s no surprise women find wood notes especially attractive, given the fact that they give a sense of power, authority, and confidence. Plus, it’s the fragrance of man’s natural habitat and traditionally manly occupations (such as farmer, hunter, woodsman).

Most of the women that I’ve spoken to said they love woody fragrances that their man wears because there’s something about that primal scent that drives them absolutely nuts.

So if you want to be one of the smooth and masculine guys in the office, or the best smelling guy when you’re out with friends, check out these fragrances that will make you attractive as hell to women around you – Oud Wood by Tom Ford, Royal Oud Cologne by Creed, 1 Million Intense by Paco Rabanne, Intenso by Dolce & Gabbana and Lagerfeld Classic by Karl Lagerfeld.

A good wood fragrance is a must-have – especially for the fall and winter seasons!

How to wear your watch correctly

Published

on

As much as you won’t like hearing this, you’re probably wearing your watch wrong.

It’s not your fault; you may have never been taught how to wear a watch properly. After all, there is more than one way to wear a watch.

But how do you know which way is the right way?

Don’t worry, gents; as always, I’ve got you covered. I’m here with the best way to wear your favorite timepiece properly and look as stylish as ever.

In today’s article, I’ll be covering:

  1. Origins Of The Wrist Watch
  2. What Wrist Do You Wear A Watch On?
  3. Should You Wear Your Watch Facing Inward Or Outward?
  4. The Stylish Way To Wear A Watch

#1 Origins Of The Wrist Watch

old watches

When it comes to wearing a watch correctly, it’s important to note why the wristwatch came about in the first place.

Dating back to the 1800s, the first watches modified to be worn on the wrist were primarily worn by women as accessories. One of the earliest was created by Patek Philippe as a fashion accessory.

At the start of the 20th century, watchmakers became intrigued about using a wrist-worn timepiece for men in the military. They believed it would help them tell time quickly while on the battlefield.

Watchmakers started modifying pocket watches to fit on a bracelet worn on the wrist. Men would not wear the first iteration of the modern wristwatch until well into the 20th century.

Then developed as a ‘trench watch’ for military use, the earliest wrist watches offered something the pocket watch didn’t have – convenience.

After the wristwatch became less of a fashion accessory and more of a functional tool, watchmakers would spend the next century modifying them into the modern wristwatches we enjoy today.

#2 What Wrist Do You Wear A Watch On?

The age-old question: what wrist to wear a watch on? The answer – it depends.

The reason it depends is that since the creation of the wristwatch, men have mostly worn their watch on their non-dominant wrist. And since most people are right-handed, you would wear your watch on your left wrist.

But this isn’t always the correct answer. You may want to wear your watch on the right wrist if you are left-handed. But you may also want to wear it on your dominant hand.

So how do you know for sure?

The most significant benefit of wearing your watch on your non-dominant hand is that you can quickly put the watch on and navigate the dial more efficiently than with your non-dominant hand.

Wearing your watch on your non-dominant hand is less likely to damage the watch as you tend to do more with your dominant hand. If you were to wear it on your dominant hand, you’re more likely to scratch or ding the watch than on your non-dominant hand.

So the rule of thumb here is to wear your watch on your non-dominant hand for the best way to navigate and protect your watch.

#3 Should You Wear Your Watch Facing Inward Or Outward?

watch facing inside

The next question is, why would a man wear his watch facing inward on his wrist instead of outward?

This trend is seen primarily in individuals who need to check their watch frequently and in the most efficient way possible. Among the many reasons you should wear a watch, one of the most common is to support you in your profession.

You will see men in the military do this, as it’s easier and prevents sun glare better than when it’s on the outside of the wrist. It also offers faster convenience to other tools on the watch in addition to the time.

Another reason you may want to wear your watch facing inward is that it can help protect your watch from scratches and dings. Again, this is just a preference.

But you’re a stylish guy looking for the best way to wear his watch. What should you do?

The answer here is to wear it facing outward, as that is the most common way to wear a wristwatch. It shows off your timepiece that you love while also still being functional.

Unless you’re in a profession where you need to check your watch quickly while managing other tasks, the best way is to have your watch facing outward. After all, you probably didn’t spend money on that beautiful timepiece to hide its character.

#4 The Stylish Way To Wear A Watch

Now it’s time to find out exactly how to wear a watch in the most stylish way a guy can.

Assuming you’ve selected the right size watch for your wrist, the first thing you want to do is figure out if you’ll be wearing your watch on your right or left wrist.

As mentioned above, traditionally, the watch is worn on your non-dominant wrist. So if you’re right-handed, this means wearing your watch on your left wrist. For left-handed guys, this means your right wrist.

After you figure that out, it’s quite easy. The first thing you want to do is locate your wrist bone.

You want to wear your watch face up just above your wrist bone. If done correctly, your watch should slightly peek out from under the cuffs of your shirt when wearing long sleeves.

Next, you want to tighten the strap so it’s loose enough to be comfortable. You don’t want it so loose it can spin freely around your wrist. You also don’t want it too tight, or it will feel uncomfortable, especially when you bend your wrist.

After doing this correctly, you’ll be wearing a watch in the most stylish way possible.

There you have it, gents.

Now you no longer have to worry about wearing your watch incorrectly.

There is more than one way to wear a watch, so find what’s most comfortable for you personally, and rock your favorite timepiece accordingly.

Fall Capsule Wardrobe Preparation (Buy Now and Get $$$)

Published

on

We’ve all been there – fall comes around, and you open your closet only to find you have nothing but polos and shorts.

So what’s a stylish guy to do? Pay a premium to build an entire fall wardrobe last minute? Sure, if you’re loaded. But not every guy is that lucky!

Don’t worry; as ever, I’ve got you covered. In today’s article, I’ll show you how to get the best bang for your buck when building your fall capsule wardrobe.

We’ll be covering:

  1. What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?
  2. How Do You Build A Fall Capsule Wardrobe?
  3. Where Can You Find Deals On Fall Clothing?
  4. What Are The Best Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essentials?

#1 What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?

man in closet

One of the most common headaches guys run into in their closet is having too many clothing options to choose from but not enough of the right options.

While more options aren’t bad, they can be overwhelming, especially when you rarely wear most items. This is where building a capsule wardrobe comes into play.

A capsule wardrobe is a limited selection of clothing items that complement each other. This means you can buy a smaller selection of items and create a larger number of outfits.

This is crucial to understand because most guys don’t have an unlimited budget for buying clothes. A capsule wardrobe allows you to purchase and use items frequently with little redundancy.

But where do you start in building your fall capsule wardrobe?

#2 How Do You Build A Fall Capsule Wardrobe?

fall clothing items

After you have put together the perfect capsule wardrobe, you can start to add a few fall-specific items. This is done by adding a few staple pieces that complement what you already have.

For most, fall offers mild temperatures mixed with slightly warmer temperatures.

This means that layering will be of the utmost importance because you may leave the house needing a jacket, but it might be warm enough by midday to sport only the t-shirt underneath.

Start with the basics when building your fall capsule wardrobe and add pieces accordingly.

Keep It Simple

Fall is primetime for layering, so you only need a few outer layers and should focus more on the innermost layers.

You want to make sure that interchangeability is at the top of your list when it comes to your wardrobe. Everything should complement each other for ease of use.

With that said, having a few staples and adding additional items as you change seasons is essential.

For this reason, ensure you have the following items in your fall capsule wardrobe:

  • A dark three-piece suit 
  • A light-colored tweed blazer
  • A leather bomber or biker jacket
  • An overcoat (dark or light)
  • A formal button-up shirt (white)
  • 2 casual button-up shirts (flannel or chambray, you choose)
  • 2 sweaters (1 shawl, 1 crew neck)
  • 2 t-shirts (1 white, 1 black,)
  • 2 pairs of Jeans (1 dark, 1 light)
  • 2 pairs of slacks/chinos (1 dark, 1 light)
  • 2 belts (1 black, 1 brown)
  • 1 pair of black dress shoes
  • 1 pair of brown oxfords (leather or suede, you decide)
  • 1 pair of sneakers (plain white or brown)
  • 1 pair of military boots (black or brown)

When it comes to accessories like watches, scarves, or gloves, you can use what you have as most men won’t need all of them, so I won’t count them in.

#3 Where Can You Find Deals On Fall Clothing?

clothing on sale

As it is the middle of summer, fall will be approaching quickly.

Now is a great time to snag up some of last year’s sale items at department stores as they usually have sales on previous season items. By now, most men aren’t thinking about what to wear in the fall.

While you still might be able to find good deals on last year’s fall items, it’s usually the most optimal time to purchase these items after the season has ended. This is when retailers try hard to clear space and make room for the next season’s clothing.

When they do this, it is a great time to get excellent deals on items that have just gone out of season.

Another great option to buy men’s clothing is online at your favorite retailers, as they will often have sales and discounts on items they have in their online inventory but are not yet in prime season.

The most expensive items in your fall capsule wardrobe are the ones you want to focus on, as you can often save a significant amount of money out of season for them.

These big ticket items include:

  • Your dark three-piece suit and blazer
  • Overcoats and jackets
  • Dress shoes and sneakers
  • Boots

These items will be some of the most expensive items and can be found discounted out of season. Put these at the forefront of your fall capsule wardrobe search.

#4 What Are The Best Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essentials?

man shopping for clothes

You want to adhere to a few staples when building your fall capsule wardrobe.

Since fall weather can vary, layering will be essential. These few items are crucial as mainstays that can be layered with other items within your wardrobe.

For example, if you experience a rather chilly day in fall and need to wear a suit, an overcoat is essential as that outermost layer because you can simply remove it when you no longer need it.

When it comes to the concept of layering within your fall capsule wardrobe, you want to make sure you nail these following items.

Overcoats

man wearing overcoat

Having a good overcoat to complement your fall capsule wardrobe is crucial.

The overcoat acts as the outermost layer and will be removed whenever you go indoors. This makes for a great option as you can wear it with anything as it offers excellent versatility.

When searching for the perfect overcoat, it’s essential to know your size as they usually come in sizes of suit jackets, not regular sizing. After you’ve nailed the size, focus on color.

Dark-colored overcoats tend to be the most versatile. However, a light camel color can work as well. Stay away from patterns with overcoats as the goal is to be as versatile as possible.

Leather Jackets

leather jackets

A good leather jacket goes a long way. You can choose a leather biker jacket or a leather bomber; it’s your call.

Biker jackets can be slightly harder to pull off as most of the time, they will have a larger and more aggressive collar, but they still look great.

A leather bomber jacket is an excellent option because it looks great on all body types and often has more options than biker jackets.

For color, opt for black or dark brown, as that gives you the most versatility with other items in your fall capsule wardrobe.

Sweaters

man wearing sweater

Sweaters are to fall, what t-shirts are for summer. This means they are a critical piece as they are season specific and offer great versatility when it comes to layering.

So how do you find the perfect sweater?

You want options, so have a couple of different collar choices to give yourself the most bang for your buck.

Having a shawl neck sweater and a crew neck sweater ensures you have all your bases covered.

Make sure you choose neutral tones such as greys, creams, and tans for color. This ensures maximum versatility with other items within your wardrobe and gives you the most options.

That’s it, gents.

The Best Zara Fragrances

Published

on

We all know of Zara and I’m pretty sure the majority of us own at least one piece from them, but I’m not here to talk about their reasonably priced clothing, I’m here for their fragrance.

Not quite a hidden gem but I don’t feel that they vast range and high quality fragrance that they create is given enough air time, I’m about to change that. The fragrance game is massive at the moment, everyone from the big fashion houses all the way to footballers have a scent on the market and they all carry a hefty price tag, with some of the bigger hitters asking in excess of

£100 for 50ml.

Zara clearly understand the need for a great fragrance but also appreciate not everything has to be overly expensive. I’ve been lucky enough to sample my fair share over the years and wanted to share with you what I feel are some of their strongest.

Tobacco Collective 100ml – £16.99

This is one of my absolute favourites, it works perfectly as an everyday scent. The initial smell is strong and masculine but with undertones of vanilla bourbon help to soften it slightly.

For Him 100ml – £22.99

My current daily spray, its warm, modern and intense. It just so happens to be the perfect blend of three of my favourite scents, bergamot, cardamom and sandalwood. It’s strong yet light, never over powering and leaves a wonderful trail.

Florence 100ml – £16.24

Summer calls for a fresh fragrance and I cannot recommend this highly enough, its light, fresh and citrus scent is perfectly for those warmer days. Notes of black pepper, strawberry and guaiac wood allow this scent to sit gently on the skin with offending the noses of those around you.
