“Profumo smells like the original Acqua di Gio went off to travel the world for a few years and came back a darker, brooding, more handsome and infinitely more interesting version of its former self. A fantastic new work from Alberto Morillas, I’ll be wearing this a lot!”
Spicebomb by Viktor&Rolf
Winter is always the time to put on an intense, woody and sexy fragrance (while in summer you’d better wear some calm and cool scent). With its grenade-like shape, Spicebomb is no doubt explosive (pun intended).
With the perfectly blended combination of different woody & spicy notes, I’m sure you’ll not only have a naturally sexy body smell but also make your partner want to bury their head on your neck and shoulder. Oh, and walking in the cold winter will be a better feeling too because you know you smell good.

Do you like a seductive scent but not so overpowering? If yes, then A*Men is the best men cologne for you so that you don’t even have to try any other cologne samples anymore.
The A*men bottle is inspired by the Silver Surfer, and by this the producer wants to present not only the masculine aspect but also the sensitivity, intelligence and intuition of men. This best men’s fragrance is long-lasting but it won’t be so intense that makes the sensitive nose run on a no-stop sneezing marathon.

Bleu de Chanel by Chanel
A sophisticated fragrance, no matter how people bash it as “generic”, Bleu de Chanel is still one of the best men perfumes to pick in a cold day.
