Countless men and women consider perfume an integral, if invisible, part of their personal style. So, searching for the best perfume and not being overpowered by scent is daunting, especially for men.

While variety may be the spice of life, strong scents of citrus, oud, leather, and amber wood, embodying the majority of male perfumery, can be quite intense for the senses. It’s important to have your own scent identity.

After all, owning fragrances that suit you is a form of self-care, with every spritz providing confidence and a fresh sensation.
