Summer is officially here and it has brought tropical temperatures, as it usually does. Every piece of clothing on our skin is one too many and I’m sure that each of us would prefer to spend the rest of the summer in a swimsuit on the beach but jobs and responsibilities do not allow that. However, there is a way to add freshness and energy to every hot day. As we change clothes in line with changing seasons, we also change out our fragrance wardrobe. Winter is the time for heavy perfumes with dominant notes of vanilla, patchouli, and amber, while the summer is reserved for citrus and fresh aquatic perfumes. In the text below we bring you the best summer fragrances for men, which you will have to include in your collection if you haven’t already. Here is our list of Top 5 Summer Summer Fragrances For Men!
Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio
This timeless classic was released in 1996 and to this day, 22 years later, still has fans all around the world. Acqua di Gio is a safe choice if you are indecisive or inexperienced in buying perfumes. It belongs to the aquatic aromatic category, and as the designer says – it’s the smell of freedom, full of wind, salty seawater and the Mediterranean sun. In the opening, you’ll be stunned with sharp notes of citrus, mixed with sea notes, rosemary and coriander, while as the time passes, the scent will be dried with a base of wood and sweet notes of musk. It will fill you with energy and bring the breeze of the sea depths into the sprawling days in the city. Clean, masculine, refreshing, in one word – the legend of the perfume world.
Chanel Bleu de Chanel
When Bleu de Chanel first appeared on perfume shelves in 2010, it was disputed and the perfume audience around the world criticized Chanel, disappointed by the lack of inventiveness and originality of this perfume. Since then the fragrance has achieved massive popularity, and after the eau de toilette, Chanel came out with the eau de parfume version, as well as the perfume. Bleu de Chanel is masculinity in a bottle and is wearable for absolutely any occasions one can think of. The dark massive bottle in the shades of gray and navy perfectly suits the scent itself, full of bright citrus notes, which are felt throughout the aroma compound, which in dry-down is softened and rounded out with sandalwood and incense. Elegant, sophisticated and with perfect intensity, sillage and consistency, Bleu de Chanel is simply a must-have.
Kenzo Pour Homme
Released in 1991, Kenzo Pour Homme is another perfume which can be labeled as timeless and we would even say superior to today’s perfumes. Kenzo pour Homme is an art in a bottle. The smell of the sea, the waves that lazily hug the shore, the scent of seaweed and algae that wrap around your feet while walking on a sandy beach, the smell of a pine forest that brings the breeze in the summer evenings. Kenzo pour Homme is probably the fragrance with the most natural scent of the sea as we know it. Marine and citrus note mix with the scent of sunny pines and sage, while the fragrance ends with wooden notes of sandalwood and vetiver. Dense, aromatic, intense and incredibly fresh, this is the perfume you should have, use and love. Words are not necessary. It’s simply beautiful.
Bvlgari Aqva Pour Homme
Another scent of the sea trapped in a bottle. Aqva pour Homme is an intense scent of citrus and seaweed, with wooden notes in the dry-down. It smells like salty sea water and air, refreshes as a glass of icy cold water after a hard busy day, strengthens the spirit and body, and it’s a necessary part of everyday life when temperatures are high. Since the launch in 2005, it has had many new editions with only a few modified ingredients, the last of which was released in 2017 – Aqva pour Homme Atlantiqve. You don’t have to think too hard, with Bvlgari Aqva you will not make a mistake – definitely goes in top 5 summer fragrances for men list.
Christian Dior Eau Sauvage
Something completely different. Eau Sauvage is one of the best perfumes ever made. It was introduced in 1966, which means that it has been on perfumery shelves for more than 50 years! In 2009, a new advertising campaign for the reformulated Eau Sauvage was launched with Alain Delon as the face of the perfume. Eau Sauvage is legendary and recognizable thanks to natural notes of lemon and bergamot, mixed with lavender, on a wooden base of sandalwood, patchouli, amber and musk. Incomparable to all other men’s perfumes, especially in the citrus aromatic group, Eau Sauvage is a summer fragrance for all generations who know how to wear it and enjoy it, although it’s usually related to older gentlemen. Purity and sophistication, a touch of luxury and aristocracy, elegance and impassability, white clothes and the infinite blueness of the sky and the sea. It’s all Eau Sauvage, which you have to buy at least once in your life.
