The first day of Spring is right around the corner. Next to Fall (Hello, football!), Spring is one of our favorite seasons! There’s something about the perfect mixture of anticipated warmness, with a touch of light airiness still lingering from the calm, cool winter.  Time to break out those fragrances for Spring!

Close your eyes and envision your connection to Spring: do
you have keen recollection of the floral compositions springing up everywhere –
or – perhaps of the ocean-filled breeze from your vacations to the Caribbean?

Whatever it is, it’s hard to also not include that some of the leading memories of Spring lead us back to some of our favorite fragrances. Check out our top 5 men’s fragrances for the Spring season.

1. Creed Green Irish Tweed

Creed Green Irish Tweed reminds us of street-filled parades, and weekend bar crawls in 75-degree sunny weather – toasting up Jameson shots with friends.  The cologne packs a strong punch, but has this cool, fresh finish to lighten the blow. It gives off a “mature” scent profile but with some modern edge.

The top notes are lemon and verbena – at the heart – iris and violet leaves.  Not that we can smell colors, but the notes deliver a “green” scent, reminiscent of nature.  And though the base notes are sandalwood and ambergris, the dry down of Green Irish Tweed is very mossy and forest-y.

2.Yves Saint Laurent Y

Yves Saint Laurent (YSL)’s Y Eau de Toilette fragrance is the new kid on the block. The cologne’s name symbolizes a generation of youth – literally!  In comparison to Green Irish Tweed, Y EDT cologne is not strong and commanding, but has structure and fluidity. Think: white T-shirt, black leather jacket, and distressed denim jeans type of guy.

Notes of bergamot and sage offer sharp freshness anchored by cedarwood, perfecting a men’s fragrance for the bold, ambitious achiever.

3.Chanel Allure Homme Sport

This cologne is one of the most popular Spring fragrances. Chanel Allure Homme Sport dons a reputation for fresh aquatic notes, mixed with florals and spices – perfect for the outdoorsy, athletic type of guy.

The top notes of this fragrance are aldehydes, mandarin, orange, and aquatic notes. The middle notes are neroli, pepper, and cedar; finally, the base notes: white musk, tonka beans, amber, and vetiver.

4. Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

Tobacco Vanille is a part of Tom Ford’s Private Blend Collection. The fragrances in this makeup are unisex, and can be worn anyone, anywhere. The initial reaction to the mixture of tobacco and vanilla, gives us warm, fiery scents – not indicative of the typical Spring day.  However, you can pull Tobacco Vanille out of your collection on a cooler, Spring night – when you want to make a lasting impression in smaller, intimate settings.

Notes to mention (other than the obvious tobacco and vanilla strains): spices, tonka beans, cocoa, dry accords, and various woods.

5. Jo Malone Grapefruit Cologne

What’s spring without being graced with something refreshing? Fruity? Fresh? Both? With top notes of grapefruit and tangerine – middle notes of rosemary, mint, paprika, and jasmine – and the base notes of vetiver, patchouli, and oakmoss, expect to feel (and smell) like raindrops n’ gumdrops with Jo Malone’s Grapefruit Cologne!

Though unisex, there’s nothing overly feminine about all the notes comprised in this fragrance. In fact, the lightness works well with the man’s natural musk, on a warmer Spring day.

return, or just end up hating! Our Aroma Life team equally agrees that fragrance reviews
and sampling is always a tried-and-true way to find new fragrance.  As we continue to buy and resell popular
perfumes and colognes, we’ll review them – so you don’t have to!  Check out one of our editor’s reviews on
Burberry’s My Burberry Blush eau de parfum.

My Burberry Blush, 3.4 FL OZ Eau de Parfum

Fragrance Details

Retail: Buy online for $67.70 on Aroma Life

Packaging: Square perfume bottle with cylinder lid. Signature Burberry logo and gold trim on bottle and box.

Notes: Lemon, pomegranate, rose petals, green apple, geranium, jasmine, & wisteria

My Burberry Blush eau de parfum fragrance online

First impression:

We sampled My Burberry Blush throughout a regular workday – to not only see how the notes carry through long hours, but also how the notes develop over time.

Soft, floral fragrance

With two, light mists to each wrist (anything more would be too overpowering for this fragrance), My Burberry Blush opens with an immediate citrus floral. There’s a swift note of lemon, green apple and traces of rose. The fragrance is nothing special but really well-mixed together. A few minutes in the “dry down,” the scent gets softer, picking up the fruity pomegranate and geranium notes.

By lunchtime (about 3-4 hours since spraying), My Burberry Blush reminds us of a really expensive “fabric softener.” Think: soft, powdery-clean aroma with whiffs of an elected fragrance.

Those notes picked up a tart floral – with more of the jasmine coming through to steal the show. The soft powdery scent: Geranium. It’s not as warm as gourmand, but slightly “green” & peppery.  We’re thinking this is what ties the lemon and rose subtly into this fragrance composition.

Blush attire work wear
Blush: Perfect work accessory

Overall impression:

We recommend this for spring and summer wear! My Burberry Blush is a subtle, straight-to-the-point perfume. It’s plain but packs a sweet punch at various moments during the wear that surprise your nose. Unlike of other perfume/cologne from the Burberry fragrance collection, My Burberry Blush is not a 10-hour wear. The sillage on this is not very strong, so consider this your non-tedious, everyday work perfume, than your signature day-to-night scent. You’d do well with bringing a small bottle with you to re-up every couple of hours – as – while the scent brings complements, over time, you don’t really smell it unless someone is in your immediate radius.

Giorgio Armani’s Acqua di Gio brand is no stranger to sophisticated fragrance wearers and collectors. Inspired by vacations on the Pantelleria island, each release of the Acqua fragrance has intangible essences from the freshness and warmth of the Mediterranean Sea.

By far the best-selling collection from Armani, it’s hard to decide an absolute favorite. So what’s the difference between the original Acqua di Gio, Acqua Di Gio Profumo, and the Acqua di Gio Absolu?  If you’re new to the collection, we’re here to provide all you need to know about the three top Armani fragrances.  Read on as we compare and review:

Armani Acqua di Gio

Originally released in 1996, Acqua di Gio is the staple fragrance to collection. Compositions of the cologne are built heavily on sweet and salty notes of the sea water and the warmth from the Sun. Acqua di Gio is full of bitter citrus (green tangerine, persimmon), nuances of rosemary, mignonette, and has long-lasting base notes of wood and musk.

Our review: Armani’s Acqua di Gio is by far for mature audiences.  While the scent-maker describes the cologne as fresh and relaxed, it is powerful– meaning that a little goes along way! Being that it’s the predecessor of the other fragrances, compared to the others, it may be the most subtle of the pack.

Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani (3.3 oz), $77

Acqua di Gio Profumo

Birthed from the original DNA, Profumo is a more intense (and adventurous) evolution of Acqua di Gio. The cologne is more dense with intense notes of earthy and minty patchouli. From volcanic rock and deep ocean waters, Acqua di Gio Profumo radiates with fresh bergamot and marine accords that are paired with the deep, captivating radiance of incense.

Our review:  The cologne is woody, zesty, and fresh with “sweetness’ that separates it from the original. Though not as fresh as Versace’s Dylan Blue, the updated Profumo opens up to be mature — but not old or outdated. Fair warning: this cologne is very dense. Since it’s made with incense, too much fragrance can be annoying – especially in the heat, which tends to warm up fragrances. Two sprays will go a long way…

Acqua di Gio Profumo (1.4 oz), $77

Acqua di Gio Absolu

The newest release is yet another creation from Alberto Morillas. This time around, the Absolu variation is built on the harmony of marine notes and woodsy interpretations. The juxtaposition provides strong heart and base notes that are reminiscent of the fresh, crisp, wintry mix of the Alpines. Acqua di Gio Absolu is sharp but not deep or dense, like Profumo.

Our review: Absolu has been reviewed by others as reminiscent of the “businessman- who-works-in-finance” vibes. The fragrance is well established for those who know who to handle fragrance (it’s not quite the new kid of the block). For occasion, Absolu is perfect for an exclusive night out on the town, not for an everyday wear. For wear, this fragrance can qualify as a revolving seasonal cologne, however, we think it would fare well during warmer seasons.

Acqua di Gio Absolu (2.5 oz), $86

2019 is on its way to being wrapped up! As a new year (and decade!) approaches, fragrance lovers are making room for new resolutions, new looks, and of course – new fragrance!  Before looking forward, take a look at some of the top fragrances that were just released this Fall season.

Fragrances For Him

Bottega Veneta Illusione for Him, $118, Macys.com

Bottle of Bottega Veneta Illusione
Illusione for Him, BOTTEGA VENETA

Launched in Summer’s closing months of 2019, Illusione blurs the lines between reality and dream, as well as, wellness and luxury. Available in his and hers, the Bottega Veneta fragrance duo capture “sensual Italian allure from two perspectives.” The men’s fragrance offers a “resinous masculinity” that plays with aromatic notes of woody– and citrus-ness. Every note listed is promised in its scent: from Italian lemons and bitter orange to fir resin and white cedar.

K by DOLCE & GABBANA, $94, sephora.com.

Bottle of K, Dolce and Gabbana cologne
K, DOLCE & GABBANA

An abbreviation for ‘king,’ this new release (September 2019) from Dolce and Gabbana is step away from the brand’s typical grandiose scents. Instead, the fragrance inspires men to be everyday “kings” of their own domain – and what better way than with a signature scent? 

Though the bottle resembles that of The One by Dolce & Gabbana, ‘K’ is a very contrasting fragrance. The top has citrus freshness to create a light aroma, then goes deeper with combinations of very specific varieties of patchouli and spice, which makes it hot and sexy (versus leathery and oriental like other D&G fragrances)!

Molton Brown Flora Luminare, $160, moltonbrown.com.

Molton Brown fragrance Flora Luminare
Flora Luminare, MOLTON BROWN

At a glance, this fragrance is one the softer side of fragrance – making it most provocative! Filled with notes such as orange blossom, mandarin, jasmine absolute,  vanilla and musk, Flora Luminare can go either way on the for him or for her spectrum.  Sensuous and intoxicating, Flora Luminare is the latest of over 20 collections from the London luxury fragrance.

Acqua di Parma Signatures of the Sun, $270 each, saksfifthavenue.com.

Acqua Di Parma Fragrance Collection
Signature of the Seas, ACQUA DI PARMA

These signature releases, bring together ingredients from all over the world. The 10-fragrance collection is curated and distilled by exclusive fragrance houses. Of the 10, five are all for the new release and include: Camelia, Osmanthus, Sakura, Vaniglia and Yuzu.

If you’re a collector, then you’ll have earned your badge of honor once you have these bottles in your fragrance wardrobe.

Perry Ellis AMERICA,$75, perryellis.com.

Perry Ellis America Fragrance
America, PERRY ELLIS

Our current culture craves nostalgia – from Throwback Thursdays to Flashback Fridays. These blasts from the past aren’t just for post on the ‘gram  – or cool themed parties! Don’t be surprised when you see legendary brands join in on the moment and bring us back the scents that created old memories.  America by Perry Ellis is a staple fragrance in the 90s capsule collection that has been launched by the brand. Aside from minor optimization, nothing about the fragrance has changed much. The unisex scent blends modern notes with 90s vibes, with bergamot, pineapple, white pepper, lavender, rose, myrrh, patchouli, birch and amber.

Fragrances For Her

Twilly d’Hermes Eau Poivree, $133, hermes.com

Hermes perfume bottle
Twilly d’Hermes, HERMES

“Hermes girls swim against the tide… and set their own tempo…” The release of Twilly d’Hermes perfume  unleashes the spirit of this girl that’s drummed up by the major brand house – and provides the backdrop for this preppy and youthful fragrance. The smells and packaging offer vibrance that garners the attention of others, while enchanting them to stay. Ingredients include pink peppercorn, rose, and patchouli.

Chloe L’Eau, $119, sephora.com

L'eau new fragrance by Chloe brands
Chloe L’Eau, CHLOE

A rose perfume you’ll actually want to wear this Fall…

Paired with  a
multi-faceted magnolia this new Chloe perfume is long-lasting and adds a new
variety to the icon fragrance line. If you’re not familiar with Chloe’s other
scents, not to fret, this scent is good for introduction. Though it’s billed as
a “floral” – the lasting notes offer up a fresh note throughout.

KILLIAN Rolling in Love Eau de Parfum, $240, bykilian.com

Rolling in Love  Perfume by Killian
Rolling in Love, by KILLIAN

Have you ever been so high on love that it got under your skin? If not, prepare for the multi-dimensional emotional journey – that is Killian’s Rolling in Love! No one feeling should be evoked in the representation of love. The same holds true for the notes and aromas that envelop you with Killian’s new fragrance. Rolling in Love is a “white” scent, layering different textures along the scent’s trail with notes of ambrette seeds, almond milk, iris, and musk.

NARS Audacious, $180, nars.com

NARS Cosmetics fragrance
Audacious, NARS

The beauty brand has created and sold almost every beauty product known to (wo)man – except one thing: fragrance! After 25 years, with the help of French perfumer, Olivia Giacobetti, the NARS elite have a signature scent to accompany their cult line of products. NARS Audacious plays on the term “audacity”: which boldly places contrasts in your face. The fragrance embodies sensuality, while creating individuality from your typical femme fragrance.

Its top notes are white frangipani and incense smoke; the
middle notes bring together tiare flower, ylang ylang essential oil, and
sandalwood; and the base notes combine white cedar essential oil and white
musk.

Tory Burch Knock On Wood, $138, bloomingdales.com.

Tory Burch lastest fragrance release.
Knock on Wood, TORY BURCH

Another fragrance brand that uses nostalgia as a key component to its success. If you’re fairly familiar with superstition, then you’re aware that “knocking on wood” dispels bad luck for good fortune. Similarly, Tory Burch’s newest perfume (launched in September 2019) is a woody floral that evokes strength, confidence, and of course, a little luck.

Knock on Wood is an unexpected mix of note contrasts, with Turkish rose and sandalwood, cardamom and vetiver.

There’s no mistaking the popularity of big-brand fragrances.
Call them common, ubiquitous, you name it! Popular fragrances have become a
go-to for most — perfume snobs have thought them too mainstream for their
liking. Nevertheless, no one can deny a quality bottle of cologne.  Men (and even women) have found pleasure in
the intoxicating aromas of Dolce & Gabbana, Issey Miyaki, Gucci
and the likes.

We draw near to the end of the year, here’s our top 5 most-sought after men’s fragrances:

1.L’Homme Prada EDT

Not everyone will “get” the powerful powdery notes of
this Prada fragrance. But that’s what makes the underlying beauty and attraction
of the cologne so sought after. Iris scents are not typically common and frequent,
so when a name like Prada enters the fragrance marketplace, take heed!

If you can find one (hint hint:  Buy L’Homme Prada 3.4 oz from The Aroma Life, $93), grab it while you can!

2. Gucci Intense OUD EDP

Anyone who grew akin to the likes of Issey Miyake and Versace Eros, then you know why Gucci Intense OUD EDP is sought after. Birthed from the same creator (Aurelien Guichard) Gucci Intense is trendy, and a sure complement-bait for men.

The oriental fragrance has tons going on essence-wise – and intense it is! On first spray, there’s notes of pear, raspberry, and saffron. Underneath the Gucci Intense Oud cologne are heart notes of Bulgarian rose, as well as base notes of oud oil and patchouli!

Gucci Intense OUD cologne

3. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau Intense

When D&G Light Blue Pour Homme was launched in 2007, it became a big seller for the Italian luxury label. Made by the same creator of Bulgari Man, cK One EDT, and Gucci Guilty Absolute EDP, Light Blue Eau Intense EDT became another best seller exactly 10 years later.

It’s not a radically different fragrance from its predecessor, but the notes of frozen grapefruit and seawater add a sharper, more distinct vibe, that’s irresistible!  

photo of Dolce & Gabbana fragrance

4. Azzaro Wanted by Night EDP

Azzaro Wanted had its popularity (and was a pretty substandard cologne). Azzaro Wanted by Night made fragrance fanatics take a second look!

In 2018, the birth of the parfum gave us metro-masculine vibes. The hard-soft mix of cinnamon, wood, and spice offers the right amount of intensity with just enough sweetness. It’s the 50 Shades of Grey for cologne.

photo of Azzaro Wanted by Night cologne.

5. Carolina Herrera CH Men Prive

The essence of a CH fragrance is built upon a couture spirit
and worldly traditions – where layering fragrances established confidence and
status. The brand has a solid list of wildly-successful fragrance launches, but
no one can turn their noses on a staple: CH Men Prive.

Strong whisky notes open the senses that then smooth into warm
effects of cardamom and leather.  Well-blended
and seductive indeed.   

What makes this fragrance even more sought-after, is availability. At, current all sizes of CH Men Prive is not in stock from the Carolina Herrera website. You can still buy Carolina Herrera fragrance directly from The Aroma Life retail store.

If you thought you were splurging when you purchased that bottle of Tom Ford Oud Wood or Clive Christian for Women, then you’ve thought incorrectly…

NO. 1 IMPERIAL MAJESTY

We all know that big scents call for big bucks, especially if it’s backed behind a famous brand house, dons the most proliferated perfume bottle, and smells exotic; however, it’s hard to imagine how an ounce  of evaporated ingredients – mixed with alcohol – could cost more than our entire retirement fund. Not to mention, the fact that there are people out their willing to buy them!

Hold on to your high-end hats, because the below 5 scents have been crowned as The Most Expensive Fragrances in the World (period!):

#5 Joy by Jean Patou

1000 Jasmine Flowers. 28 dozen roses. That’s how much goes into making just a single ounce of this perfume. Created in the early 1920’s by French courtier, Jean Patou, the fragrance won the 2000 FiFi award for “Scent of The Century” (hopefully it lasts that long, at retail price per ounce!).

Cost: $800 an ounce | Find Joy fragrance at Neiman Marcus

#4 Hermes 24. Faubourg

How do you create an unforgettable fragrance? Mix some of the most unique blends of orange blossom, iris, patchouli, ylang-ylang, vanilla, and sandalwood – with a limited production of only 1000 bottles – and you’ve got one of the rarest fragrances on the market.

Cost: $1,500 an ounce | Find Hermes fragrance online

#3 Chanel Grand Extrait

The most iconic flavor of the House of Coco Chanel. With a few variations of No. 5 fragrances, the most expensive of is presented with the Grand Extraits. What sets the $80 apart from these limited editions (ranging up to $30,000)?!  Long story, short: presentation. The Grand Extrait bottle is presented in a “limited edition, grand flacon,” and “faceted in a majestic glass bottle, sealed by art of baudruchage.

Reading the product description of the “abstract blend” also lends its hand to the price… *meh*

Cost: $4200 an ounce

#2 Clive Christian No. 1 Imperial Majesty

Get a Harvard MBA, or buy this extremely rare bottle of perfume? Decisions…

With only 10 bottles produced, the Imperial Majesty bottle holds a Guinness Book of World Records title for Most Expensive Perfume – considering it costs a whopping $215,000! We’re pretty sure just a whiff of this scent, costs more than we can afford!

From what we hear, the flask of French Baccarat crystal, contains a royal nectar of citrus-y notes: lime, Sicilia’s mandarin and pink grapefruit. It’s passionate, yet subtle (even though for a quarter of a million, I’d be less than modest!).

Cost: $12, 720 an ounce | Buy Clive Christian’s more modest fragrances

#1 DKNY Golden Delicious Million Dollar Fragrance Bottle

Donna Karan took a mainstay fragrance, and put a price tag that the likes of Beyonce and friends would consider disposable income.

The “one-of-a-kind” fragrance is exquisite purely because of packaging; masterfully hand-crafted with: 183 yellow sapphires, 2700 white diamonds, the 1.6-carat turquoise, Brazilian Paraiba tourmaline, and a 7.18-carat oval Cabochon sapphire all the way from Sri Lanka. The bottle is nothing less than an art exhibit – but for a good cause – so it gets a pass from us!

Cost: $1M | Purchase your non-studded bottle of DKNY Golden Delicious in our Aroma Life shop.

Let’s admit it: Aside from the in-laws, men are some of the hardest group of people to purchase gifts for! And not because they are picky…
