The male fragrance guide
If there’s one thing us women love about a man, other than his ability to fix things (or at least pretend he’s fixing it), it’s his smell. And I’m not talking about his stinky, just played a quick game of footy with the lad’s stench; I’m talking about his manly scented spritz. There’s something just sexy about a man with a signature scent, and he doesn’t have to walk around in an Armani suit to pull it off either. There are plenty of fragrances to suit every man at any age, so if you thought perfumes were ‘girl’s only’ territory, prepare to be proven wrong.
Fragrance for men in their 20’s
When it comes to choosing a fragrance, the nose always knows best, so make sure to always smell before you purchase. Men in their 20’s should go for a light, crisp scent that won’t smell like he’s doused himself in his dad’s after shave. When making the transition from boy to man, crisp citrus scents are a winner.

Fragrance for men in their 30’s
Men in their 30’s can go a tad more bold and sophisticated with their scents. Something with woody top notes will give that extra sense of manliness, while middle notes of citrus will still keep it fresh and fun.

Fragrance for men in their 40’s
A gentleman in his 40’s deserves nothing less than a classic scent. Something woody, with a hint of musk and spice will represent both masculinity and maturity perfectly. As men get older their skin tends to be dryer therefore a fragrance is likely to disappear more quickly. For men in their 40’s then, a stronger scent will last longer and is the best option.
