The Best Perfumes For Men: My Top 10 List

Top 10 Perfumes for him - Bästa herrparfymerna 2017

Every man is unique, and so is his preference for what scent will fit for the right occasion. And with Valentine's-Day just around the corner, I think it is the perfect opportunity for me to share my favorite perfumes.

Maybe you will find something that suits the man in your life? There is something for everyone.

From previously only having a single perfume at a time, I spent last year building a fragrance wardrobe and discovered how much fun it is to match scent after the occasion. Not having to use the same perfume every day without being able to vary according to what you feel.

James Bond Seven 007 EdT

This one will make you feel like an actual MI6 agent! This fragrance offers a spicy scent with notes of something sweet. A day to day perfume, which also works perfectly for all your cocktail parties.

James Bond 007 EdT

Besides a “license to kill,” James Bond has his disarming fragrance. It has something retro about it and has that round and smooth spicy scent to it. For everyday use or to black-tie occasions.

L'Occitane L'Homme Cologne Cédrat Eau de Toilette L'Homme Cologne Cédrat Eau de Toilette

L’Occitane L’Homme Cologne Cédrat EdT

One of my latest addition to the perfume shelf. This one has an icy and refreshing scent that works great for all those early mornings. For me, it works better than coffee. And that says a lot about this fragrance.

3 Perfumes for men: Hugo Boss Unlimited, Hugo Boss The Scent & Boss Bottled

Boss Bottled Unlimited

For him who is more into the sporty scents. Bottled Unlimited is a real motivation booster that is both energizing and invigorating. It's perfect when you want something light and fresh for everyday use.

Boss Bottled Unlimited

Hugo Boss the Scent

I'm already on my second bottle, as you may notice due to the content of the bottle. The Scent is the perfume I use the most, and it has been my favorite since it was released. Sensual, spicy and luxuries would probably be the words that describe this fragrance best. When I want to look dressed up, this is the perfume I go for.

Hugo Boss The Scent

Boss Bottled 

Here is a true classic that I came in contact with for the first time as a child. Memories of my father picking me up from kindergarten, smelling Boss Bottled. It has a lovely aroma with hints of vanilla that suit all occasions thanks to its gentleness.

Fragrance for men: Dolce & Gabbana the One & Dior Sauvage

Dolce & Gabbana The One for Men EdT

The One for Men is a timeless classic that feels modern and fresh. I use it often. From work to parties. It' has an elegant and smooth aroma that feels very exclusive.

Dior Sauvage

A unique scent that makes me think of excitement and mystery. It´s something along the lines of Indiana Jones meets Jack Sparrow. A new favorite on my shelf that I really like and recommend everyone to try. But use it with care. It is expensive!

Perfumes for men: Gucci Guilty for him & Hermes Terre d'Hermes


Gucci Guilty for him

Both warm and cool at the same time. Strange, am I right? This is perfect to wear on the coldest winter day, but also on the hottest summer day. Gucci Guilty For Him is fascinating, energetic, and intense.

Hermes Terre d'Hermes EdT

An incredibly spicy and “overwhelming” fragrance with a touch of sandalwood. This must be one of the few perfumes that remain the longest and stands out the most. When he wants a scent that lasts all day, next day, and, well, even into the third day, this is the perfume he must have in his wardrobe.

Hermes Terre d'Hermes EdT

Eau De Lacoste L.12.12 Blanc EdT

Eau De Lacoste L.12.12 Blanc EdT

Inspired by one of my favorite polo, this is a perfect all-around perfume. It has a fresh and energizing citrus scent that reminds me of spring and summer. It is one of those scents that everyone should have as a base in their fragrance wardrobe, regardless of age.
