Male Report: The top 5 fragrances for Men

Like if this Guide is helpful
With Father’s Day and Spring Racing season just around the corner, our Fresh team picked the 5 best selling fragrances for men as gift inspiration for this coming Father's Day.  There is no single best cologne for men. Every man is different, and every nose is different too. The trick to finding the best men’s cologne for you is to figure out what it is that you want your scent to say about you. There are fragrances that exude sensuality with notes of leather accord and spicy cinnamon, others that give off a light and airy summer feel with sweet and floral notes, and still others that breathe out strong and charismatic masculinity with deep-wooded notes of musk.

Sometimes the best place to start your search is to see what the rest of the men of the world are into. There are plenty of great-smelling colognes out there; all you need to do is narrow it down to a handful to help make your selection easier.
Here are just a couple of suggestions to help you get started on your search for the best cologne for your dad.

1.Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit De L’homme

YSL La nuit is a very soft, smooth and sweet cologne. It is not cloying sweet, but sweet enough for women to find attractive in you. Cardamom in the top and Bergamot, Lavender in the middle notes are really amazing, just masculine enough to make the wearer feel sexy. The projection is average to above, the longevity is really good (At least 8 hours) and the sillage is moderate. YSL Lanuit is a safe fragrance for a romantic dinner, night out, or a date during fall, winter, spring or in cool weather. There are some fragrances you should at least buy once, and YSL La nuit is the “must have” in your list.

5. BVLGARI MAN

We start with a combination of floral notes (lotus, violet leaf) with the addition of bergamot providing a hit of freshness. The subtle mid tones of sandalwood and vetiver gives the sense that this is going to be a woodsy affair, while the musk, white honey and amber base provides a soothing balance against the warmer tones.
 Overall a very smooth, classic scent with moderate longevity. The embodiment of elegance unadorned and a projection of true confidence. A blind-eye buy will not leave you in regret.
