Women seem to like warm scents just so that they can cozy up to you. If your woman likes warm scents too, then you need to use terms like rich notes, dark scents, woody, amber, spicy and musky. A good example would be Greene Street by Etro.
If you’re an outdoorsy guy who wouldn’t like to compromise on your own taste too much, then you need to strike the right balance between your and your lady’s choices. Try a mix of Indian and Mexican fragrances that are sweet yet not too fruity, warm yet not too overbearing like John Varvatos Artisan. Look for a scent that has a warm basic and a sweet bouquet (Are you with me yet? No? Read this article to better understand the various notes in a perfume.)
Want to seduce her tonight? You need a crisp fragrance that is woody and seductive like the Guess Seductive Homme Blue. It has a woody-musky scent with a hint of black pepper to amp up your masculinity that makes her go weak in the knees.
Another specific scent that women prefer on men is one that has a spicy high note. The scent makes you think of a powerful, professional guy who is a total romantic at heart. Ralph Lauren has a good range of spicy scents.
Does your woman like to get wet and wild? Then she may like a scent that contains a strong patchouli herb, along with some cedar and sandalwood which give it a wild amber touch. Guilty by Gucci is just what you need; the perfume has a manly feel to it which will surely guarantee you a great time.
Dolce and Gabbana pour homme is another classic fragrance with a lot of sex appeal in all notes. The French lavender mixed with herbs and spices like sage and pepper give it a tender scent.
Women also prefer athletic citrusy smells, so look for something that smells like pine, citrus fruits, with hints of cashmere wood, leather, etc. David Beckham’s signature scent would be the best bet.
You may also try something that’s earthy and exotic like Issey Miyake L. This one had to make it to this list of top 10 perfumes for men. An adventurous yet ‘down-to-earth’ guy would wear this scent. It smells of bergamot and grapefruit and your lady will definitely pick up the vibe.
Calling all bad boys! Bring a little naughtiness to those cold winter nights with Rouge by Lacoste. Bold yet refreshing, this fragrance perfectly balances a burst of citrus top notes, followed by spicy hits of black pepper and ginger.
Play with your woman’s senses by wearing contrasting scents. Bittersweet fragrances will immediately spark a woman’s interest. Try the Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Terrible; it is velvety yet sparkling, with a touch of amber note in the basic.
