Perfumes for the men in your life
Scent can be a tricky gift to nail. Between all the different notes, the packaging, and how your guy is more liking to use the cologne, picking the perfect perfume for the men in your life can be a hard task.
So why not choose a fragrance that suits your man’s personality!
Here we break down five different types of men that you may be shopping for, and which notes to keep an eye on when you’re sniffing away in the perfume aisle.
He’s the type of guy that would normally surprise you with a perfume. He isn’t into heavy scents, yet prefers something more traditional and sophisticated.
Notes like bergamot, cardamom and pink pepper tick all the boxes for a scent as charismatic as the man wearing it!
