Top 10 Best Men’s Colognes for 2020

10.Bvlgari Man in Black Eau de Parfum Spray for Men

The first thing you notice about this peculiar fragrance is how much it resembles pipe tobacco smell as far as its scent goes. After it dries down, however, the fragrance becomes much softer and easy to wear, without drawing too much unnecessary attention to yourself from across the room. This being said, let us point out that this fragrance does indeed last for a very long time after being applied.

9.John Varvatos Artisan Eau de Toilette Spray

This timeless masculine scent with a citrus twist is definitely up there with the very best. Behind its great fragrance stands a citrus explosion of Silician clementines and juicy tangelos along with woody, musk notes for a smooth finish. Furthermore, the cologne’s flask is encased in handwoven rattan, a design which doesn’t just make the cologne more stylish to look at but sturdier as well.

8.Polo Black by Ralph Lauren for Men

Given its woody aromatic fragrance, this particular cologne from Ralph Lauren is definitely one of the most subtle yet long-lasting colognes out there. Launched more than ten years ago, this fragrance has become one of the most popular in the world and understandably so. Strong when first applied, this fragrance may lose some of its scent throughout the day, but it will never lose its sweet-smelling perfume.

7.Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit De L’homme Eau de Toilette Spray

What makes this cologne stand out is the combination of freshness, tone, and comfort that make it one of the best colognes you can get. Specially formulated to provide long-lasting effects without being too obvious in any way, this has to be considered one of the most subtle fragrances out there. As for its scent, let us point out that it uses notes of Cardamom, Cedar, and Coumarin to give out a bright, masculine freshness.

6.Dolce and Gabbana The One EDT for Men

Unlike some other men’s colognes out there, this one offers a light, elegant, and rich smell that will last you throughout the day. In fact, it is its longevity that makes this particular fragrance stand out, the type of longevity you won’t find in any other cologne. In terms of scent, it should be said that it combines a series of masculine notes to give out a subtle, yet long-lasting scent.

5.Guilty By Gucci EDT spray for Men

The only thing this exquisite fragrance is guilty of is providing a musky, manly scent that you can enjoy for hours on end. Given its special formula, this cologne will stick to your clothes for hours after applying it, days even. It should also be said that this fragrance does not contain any hazardous chemicals, which makes it perfect for anyone with a sensible skin or anyone who has allergies.

4.Paco Rabanne Invictus Eau de Toilette Spray for Men

Paco Rabanne’s Invictus cologne is fresh, sweet, and impressively long-lasting. These are pretty much the right attributes for a cologne to have, without mentioning just how strong the scent is when first applied. It is perhaps for this reason that this fragrance will last for days after being applied, sometimes even after washing the clothes. Speaking of which, this fragrance will not affect the fabric of your clothes in any particular way.

3.Versace Eros Eau de Toilette Spray for Men

This peculiar fragrance from Versace offers a perfect harmony of sweet and salty notes of sea water and nuances of sunny warmth for good measure. In this respect, it is perhaps one of the most exquisite fragrances out there, at least in terms of long-lasting effect. Also worth mentioning is that although it may appear that this fragrance is a bit more expensive than most, it will certainly make it up through its concentrated formula.

2.MONTBLANC Legend Eau de Toilette

With this exquisite fragrance from Montblanc, you get a pleasant scent that involves bergamot, lavender, pineapple leaf, and exotic verbena. Along with the oak moss note merged with geranium, this formula makes the scent stronger and long-lasting. Speaking of its formula, it should be said that its base contains sandalwood, Tonka, and evernyl, a combination that gives the cologne a pleasant, virtuous scent.

1.Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio Eau De Toilette Spray for Men

Giorgio Armani’s Acqua Di Gio is without a doubt, one of the most exquisite fragrances for men ever released. It includes Orange, Lime, Mandarin Orange, Jasmine, Bergamot, Lemon, and Neroli notes, all blended in a unique formula that aims to provide a long-lasting, sweet yet masculine scent that will follow you around throughout the day. Furthermore, its bitter citrus -based formula also contains sharp notes of spices that have been softened by a woody base in order to give the cologne a musky trail.

Top 10 Winter Fragrances 2018

I tried not to get too Grinch-y over the holidays, and I did pretty well, considering the world events of late 2016 plus the fact that I was suffering occasional bouts of Instagram ennui. So many exotic vacations, so many artful table settings, so many #thankful embraces scrolling past my eyes; you may know what I mean.

I’m happy with my own lot in life, truly, but sometimes I worry — not on my own behalf, but on yours, dear readers. My taste in perfume may be glamorous, but my life is pretty quiet. I hate to let you down. Still, rather than fabricate some picture-perfect fantasy life, I’ll just come clean and share my own mundane activities, with the fragrances that I wear to dress them up a bit.

Just a regular day at the office: Byredo Rose Noir. This was my most-worn fragrance of 2016, because it’s a “no brainer” for me: a blend of citrus, rose and modern patchouli that doesn’t come on too strong. It’s my olfactory equivalent of my many basic black dresses.

Waiting for my bus on a rainy/snowy/sleet-y morning: Frederic Malle L’Eau d’Hiver. I’m trying not to repeat anything from my 10 Winter Fragrances 2012 list, but I’ll make an exception for this softly enveloping marvel. It it warm? Is it cool? Just perfect, that’s all.

Sitting in a café with my laptop: A Lab on Fire What We Do In Paris Is Secret. I think I’m choosing this one for the Paris/café associations, and for the reason that its confectionery-like character makes me feel comfortable yet creative.

Giving a fragrance lecture: Chanel no. 5 L’Eau. I can never decide whether to wear something classic or something new when I’m speaking about perfume, and this one splits the difference beautifully. (I just try to ignore those ads with the scrawny model.)

Snuggling with the cats: Velvet & Sweet Pea Black Cat. Neither of our cats is actually black (one is a buff tabby and the other is a tuxedo, just partially black!), but this quirky gourmand would suit them if they wore perfume.

A visit with my neighborhood friends: Lolita Lempicka. I wish I’d known these women back in the 1990s. When we share a night in, we might watch a movie, we might just chat, but we’ll certainly be eating dessert…so Lolita (a 90s fave) really fits the bill.

Spending an evening home alone, listening to my vinyl collection: Cacharel LouLou. Let’s wallow in 1980s nostalgia! Plus, as much as I love LouLou, I don’t wear it out in polite company. It demands a lot of attention.

Running weekend errands: 4711. A few spritzes of this timeless cologne keep my mood brisk and bright as I make my way from drugstore to supermarket to local Italian deli.

A Sunday afternoon nap: CB I Hate Perfume At the Beach 1966. I’d nap every day, if I could. And on a cold and cloudy afternoon, a dab or two of this oil-based scent might help me dream of childhood summer trips to Florida.

A night out: Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin. Okay, once in a while my husband and I do go out for quiet conversation over a fancy cocktail. And I just might end up Instagramming my drink.

Stay warm, if it’s winter where are right now; and enjoy whatever you’re doing! And do check out the winter lists at Bois de Jasmin, Grain de Musc, Perfume Posse and The Non-Blonde.

The best new spring 2020 fragrances

The seven fragrances we’ll be sniffing through summer.

Miu Miu

A lighter, airier version of the original lily of the valley-centric Miu Miu scent—this time housed in a transparent blue bottle.

Carolina Herrera

This perfume is more like a piece of home decor than a beauty product. But the scent inside is equally surprising. The blend of jasmine, cocoa, and tonka bean heats up on your skin, but it’s not so sexy that you couldn’t wear it to the office. Kind of like the perfect pair of patent black pumps.

Ex Nihilo

Though it boasts pink grapefruit, peach juice accord, and rose water as star notes, it’s the pink pepper berries and woody accord that transform this scent into something less overtly feminine.


Sisley Paris

If you’re the kind of person that sips ice water with more than one lemon, then you’ll love this effervescent take on a rose perfume. White bergamot and pink pepper lend a burst of freshness that sticks around, even as the rose and musk come into play.

Clean Reserve

Ginger, fig, lemon, mandarin, and mint give this green fragrance a unique and refreshing depth. It’s impossible to dislike, but we imagine those who love to cook would get a kick out of the fresh and familiar notes.



We don’t know what we love more—the aggressive name or the deliciously bold use of jasmine. Basically, it’s as close as you’ll get to sniffing the real thing.
