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!
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!
4. Azzaro Wanted by Night EDP
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.
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.
