Finding the perfect gift for the men in your life isn’t easy. We might think that its easy because its not all about women and what we would like, but oh no, not at all! While you can’t really go wrong with classic options, I still love to choose gifts that are more personal and the ones that will really be touching. And yeah, I love perfumes, so this year again I decided to give the most important men in life the perfumes that they would absolutely love. Reading reviews really helps me in choosing perfumes for men, but …. there is a big BUT… I really have to feel the scent before actually buying it, and of course before sharing it with you guys.
In general, scents last longer in warmer months than they do in cooler weather. Our skin is more hydrated during summer and tends to hold the fragrance a little longer. For summer months it is recommended to reach for lighter scents and pick the heavier ones during the winter.
I really wanted something thoughtful for my brother, my dad and my husband. When choosing the best perfumes for men, you need something that are a nice and thoughtful way of showing how much you appreciate your loved ones.
So for the 3 most important men in life, I chose 3 perfumes and here they are:
Armani Acqua di Giò Pour Homme
This is Eau de Toilette for Men. I really am proud of myself for making this choice for my brother, because he absolutely loved it. So far to this date, this is the best perfume I have smelled for men. I am in love with it too. Acqua di Gio represents a perfect harmony of sweet and salty notes of the ocean and the sunlight that touches your skin. The sparkling essences of bergamot, lemon, orange, and lime ensure an extreme dose of freshness. The floral heart is completed with oceanic notes and aromatic nutmeg. Finally, the drydown boasts white musk, cedar wood, and Indonesian patchouli. Top notes here are: Jasmine, Lime, Lemon, Bergamot, Neroli, Tangerine–Orange Aroma, Orange. Middle notes – The heart of the fragrance comes out after a couple of minutes when the head of the scent fades away.
And finally to the best point for this perfume is that you can actually personalise it with Notino. This won’t delay your delivery time. I loved the engraving and my brother absolutely loved it too. He said it was the best present he ever received for Christmas. The engraving is done very well and makes it so much more personal gift to anyone you want to make happy for this Christmas.
Second one in my list is:
Hermès Terre d’Hermès
This is a woody spicy fragrance for the charismatic man and suitable for both everyday wear and special occasions. Top notes are Orange & Grapefruit. So here the opening has orange and grapefruit scent which transitions to the woody scent later. The Terre d’Hermès fragrance comes from the renovated workshops of the French fashion house Hermès, whose fragrances are characterised by taking inspiration from natural beauty and the pure atmosphere of nature. The compositions of Hermès fragrances are always very natural, but still very attractive. They awaken an individual’s naturalistic instinct. That is also the case with Terre d’Hermès, which was introduced in 2009.
Last, but not least is this Amouage Interlude which is very pricy, but so worth it. It has a deep aroma of smoke, resins, and woods. With Oregano and Bergamot as a top notes, it makes the scent unforgettable. It opens with zesty bergamot, oregano and pimento berry oil, perpetuating intervals of conflict which are countered by aromatic notes of amber, frankincense, opoponax, cistus and myrrh. The scent starts off very sweet, like candy, you just want to eat it, and soon afterwards. Lasts about 5-6 hours. This is a very unique and luxurious fragrance and is known as a GIFT OF KINGS. The scent can be very specific, so I would advise you to get the small sample before actually buying it.
I hope you loved my choices this year, have you tried any of the perfumes mentioned? I would love to read your comments.
