OLFACTORY NOTES: Floral, Citrusy & Fresh

This perfume has been in trend long before you were even born, and likely to be doing so after you are gone. It was first released in 1966 and is still considered one of the best fragrances for men. Some would like to say that it’s not just a fragrance, Eau Sauvage is an enduring spirit, a token of good taste and refined virility. It’s also described as: “It is a composition as limpid as the music of Mozart. One that seems simple, but is, in reality, much more complex.

Another well-loved fragrance that dates back to 1916, this iconic scent smells of easy Italian sophistication and light-hearted warmth. It’s a daytime scent you cannot fail to appreciate. It’s extracted from the sunny Sicilian citrus fruits, the scent rounds with woodland notes at the base. It was a symbol of Italian chic in British and American celebrities in the pre-war and post-war years (prior to ’30s and after ’50s). Cary Grant, David Niven, and Audrey Hepburn were some famous admirers of the scent.

Davidoff Cool Water

OLFACTORY NOTES: Marine splash, grapefruit and Sichuan pepper


This is the best seller formulation from 1988, which swapped traditional spicy notes for cool, aquatic ones like pine, mint, and ocean.

It’s been a favorite fragrance of men of all ages ever since it was first launched.

L’Eau D’Issey Pour Homme

OLFACTORY NOTES: Yuzu, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Sandalwood


Speaking of aquatic perfumes and their breezy soothing effect; Designer Issey Miyake hated the perfume and wanted something that smelled like water pouring on clean skin.
