Fun fact: the sense of smell is more closely linked with memory than any other sense!

That means you should find a fragrance that fits you like a glove so people remember you even more clearly.

Lucky for you, I’ve rounded up my top 10 perfumes for men from some of the best men’s fragrance brands to help you navigate this process.

1. The meditative woody scent - Aesop Hwyl Eau de Parfum

Why it's so good: Imagine an old, abandoned library in the middle of a cypress forest. All the windows and doors are open. Suddenly, warm, dry air blows into this space. This is a subtle scent initially but one that builds over time. The Sandalwood in the base keeps this fragrance grounded. Geranium and Suede in the heart bring a hint of subdued sweetness. Hwyl embodies calm, strength, and the quiet stillness of nature. Truly a unique and alluring perfume for men.

2. The scent that embodies masculinity and power - Creed Aventus Eau De Parfum 100ml

Why it's so good: Aventus, inspired by Napoleon Bonaparte, is classy and sophisticated. The fruity opening of Pineapple quickly transforms into a manly Musk-Wood combination that smells like power and glory. It’s crisp and clean, with no hint of soapiness. Aventus is a fragrance that announces your entrance into a room and gets people asking what you’re wearing. This is the fragrance you wear when you need to take on the world and win every single time.

3. The celebration of the modern man - Calvin Klein Eternity for Men Eau de Parfum

Why it's so good: Masculine, sensual, and fougère, Eternity is rugged yet refined and brings an earthy green edge to your fragrance collection. It opens with Sage and Green Apple before the Cypress emerges to solidify it as a strong, masculine fragrance. This is one of the best men’s fragrances for the office as it perfectly walks the line between formal and casual. It’s also perfect year-round, regardless of the temperature. It gives you an approachable air, smelling wonderful and lasting a full workday.

4. The alcohol-free men’s fragrance option - HERMETICA Redmoon

Why it's so good: If you find that your skin doesn’t tolerate the high alcohol content of traditional fragrances, this is the scent for you. Completely alcohol-free, blending both natural extracts and synthetic molecules, Redmoon is a chameleon. Vetiver and Pink Pepper give a fresh scent that’s lush and exotic. The Leather Amber molecule in this scent brings warmth and intensity with a mysterious edge to it. Redmoon is a truly addictive scent.

5. The inviting date-night fragrance - L'Artisan Parfumeur Passage d'Enfer Eau de Toilette

Why it's so good: This is a clean, musky fragrance that smells almost blended with incense. As it continues to warm up on the skin, Passage d’Enfer strikes a magical balance between sensual and unusual. Imagine decadent velvet couches on which people are enjoying the finest spirits as incense burns behind the bar. What makes this fragrance truly unique is its close silage, meaning it invites people in to smell you. That makes Passage d’Enfer the ultimate date night fragrance.

6. The fragrance that personifies nobility - Penhaligon's The Tragedy of Lord George Eau de Parfum

Why it's so good: Woody and sweetly smoky, with dry spiciness, inspired by aristocratic nobility and loyalty. This is a very strong and very masculine scent. The head notes smell like fine brandy, while a Shaving Soap middle note gives a clean contrast. This fragrance accomplishes the incredible feat of smelling highly distinguished but not stuffy or dated. It exudes confidence and smells like a man who achieves everything he sets his mind to.

7. The endless possibility of being in a new city - Burberry Mr. Burberry Eau de Parfum

Why it's so good: Classy and reserved, Mr. Burberry is the scent for the modern man who enjoys exploring his wanderlust and every new avenue. A strong compliment-magnet, it smells almost like resin thanks to the Woody accords and Benzoin, offering complexity and depth. It projects well, pleasing those who have the joy of smelling you as they pass. It leaves you feeling fresh, put-together, and ready to venture out into the world and discover all opportunities.

8. Transport yourself to old cigar bars and endless glamour - Lumira Parfum Cuban Tobacco

Why it's so good: Cuban Tobacco is intoxicating and highly sophisticated, bringing a sense of old-world glamour. Smoky yet sweet at the same time, this scent opens with Cardamon and Clove, which are balanced by Tangerine. The Tobacco underpins the entire scent, yielding a captivating smokiness that feels modern yet classic at the same time. Truly a scent that exemplifies a bold man. Appropriate for all situations but particularly appropriate when a suit is required.

9. Fiery and unique, this is an explosive scent - Maison Crivelli Santal Volcanique Eau de Parfum

Why it's so good: Santal Volcanique, or Volcanic Sandalwood in English, is a strong Sandalwood. It’s accompanied by Spices that almost smell burnt, but any harshness is immediately cut by the Lime. This scent has strong silage, meaning people immediately notice the scent and, therefore, you. Imagine walking down an ash-filled street decorated with marble as a volcano explodes in this distance. This scent has a roaring softness that’s masculine, sociable, and sexy.

10. The scent of a king: mature, classy and bold - Amouage Interlude Man

Why it's so good: Interlude Man opens with a strong projection of Spices, Woody accords, and slightly sweet Resin-based accords. Oregano brings a fascinating twist, giving an earthy note that has a spiciness to it. The Oud in this fragrance comes across as a strong wood that brings an almost animalistic quality to the scent. This is a potent, bold, and mature fragrance, ideal for the most powerful of men. Interlude Man commands those who smell it and gives an air of royalty to the wearer that could be further defined only by a crown.
