Prepare for compliments!
Choose the fragrance to suit your lifestyle today.
If you are in a rush, I suggest to choose:
When it comes to determining the appropriateness of a fragrance, your age group and lifestyle is certainly two of the most important factors.
At 18 or younger, you simply need fragrances that girls and your friends like a lot, and that get lots of compliments when you go out on Saturday nights. At this age, that's more or less all that matters… isn't it? You may want to read about our best cologne for young men to smell great.In your early twenties, you continue to think about fun: girls probably remain the central part of our life, but situations begin to arise in which it is desirable to begin to have a greater maturity. You may need a special fragrance for attending more formal events.
You will probably also start working in an office and therefore need a fragrance that is a little bit more serious. This may be the time for your first vetiver fragrance: a note that I believe to be very elegant, distinct, composed, masculine and mature.
Of course that does not mean that you stop going out in the evenings and having fun!
Our List Of The Best Cologne For Men In Their Twenties
1. Best Cologne For Nights Out: Versace Eros Eau de Toilette
The perfume opens with fresh apple, citrus and mint. Then the luxurious tonka bean and slightly sweet geranium comes to the fore and is supported by vanilla and woody notes. Eros lasts a long time and projects well.
Girls really like it and Eros can be used to go out at night in all seasons. This is because it is rich, sweet and enveloping as is required for a winter fragrance, but at the same time it has that freshness given by mint that makes it suitable for the hottest summer evenings.
This cologne gets a lot of compliments, and is one of the most used and popular fragrances in the world.
Play it safe with Eros.
Top Notes: Mint, Green apple, Lemon
Middle Notes: Tonka bean, Ambroxan, Geranium
Base Notes: Madagascar vanilla, Virginian cedar, Atlas cedar, Vetiver, Oakmoss
2. The Life Of The Party: Ultra Male Eau de Toilette by Jean Paul Gaultier
Another excellent choice is Ultra Male by Jean Paul Gaultier. This is an extremely playful, cheerful scent: a real "party boy", this is the fragrance for the one who is the life of the party, who is always having fun and is surrounded by many girls.
The opening has a prominent fresh, citrus scent resulting from the bergamot and lemon that gives the opening an intense and sharp character. At this point the pear feels moist, fruity sweet, and delectable. Gradually these two notes take one step back, the citruses disappear almost completely, but the pear remains under the dry down base notes. As time passes, the cinnamon, vanilla, amber, and clary sage introduce their sweet, fruity, spicy, leathery, and delectable accords taking the lead of the fragrance.
This is a very long lasting fragrance - up to 12 hours on your clothes - with great projection. If you want a fragrance that attracts girls then use Ultra Male!
Top Notes: Pear, Lavender, Mint, Bergamot, Lemon
Middle Notes: Cinnamon, Caraway, Clary sage
Base Notes: Black vanilla husk, Amber, Patchouli, Cedar
3. Elegant, Youthful and Masculine: Jimmy Choo Man Eau de Toilette
Jimmy Choo Man is very versatile and great for both the evening and the day, and can also be used in summer. It is a very masculine fragrance, but not a cheeky masculinity, rather an elegant and composed youthful masculinity.
It opens up very fresh and fruity. The pineapple leaf, melon, and lavender are very detectable along with some pink pepper. After a few minutes it starts to settle down; the fruitiness starts to dissipate. The lavender stays noticeable and a mild suede note comes into the picture which is very nice. A mild patchouli note is there mostly in the base to ground the scent.
Jimmy Choo Man remains very masculine and in doing so it is also very seductive. I find it a sexy fragrance, and it is an excellent choice for those who want a versatile perfume.
This fragrance has a moderate longevity, meaning you may have to touch up after a few hours. And the projection is not overpowering.
Notes: Pineapple leaf, Suede, Lavender, Melon, Pink pepper, Patchouli
4. Casual Elegance: Acqua di Giò Profumo Eau de Parfum by Giorgio Armani
Acqua di Gio Profumo is a perfect fresh casually elegant perfume for summer evenings when you start dressing a little better than an 18-year-old, but not necessarily wearing a jacket and tie. Very versatile, fresh and clean, and aromatic.
Bergamot is what you’re first met with, then the fragrance transitions into a cool sea note, not too salty or too oceanic just a refreshing water scent. This lasts for about 20 minutes before the patchouli surfaces - smells great, green, woody, with a touch of spice. The addition of the very masculine and seductive note of incense gives a sexy character to one of the most popular summer perfumes around.
Acqua di Gio Profumo is long lasting. And the projection is moderate.
Top Notes:Sea notes, Bergamot
Middle Notes:Rosemary, Sage, Geranium
Base Notes: Incense, Patchouli
5. Be Irresistible: Calvin Klein One Shock For Him Eau de Toilette
Another excellent fragrance, also very good for evenings, and very light-hearted is CK One Shock, a truly irresistible gourmand tobacco perfume.
Calvin Klein One Shock opens with a moderate projection of sweet, citrus, dark woody, and green notes. The opening is mild, unique, masculine, and pleasant. The clementine creates a sweet, fruity, citrusy, and delectable opening note that comes blended with a bit of the clean floral scent of lavender and the freshness of the cucumber.
It is not long before the opening notes start fading letting the tobacco, spices, amber, woody, and green notes open up. Then the tobacco and woods mix surfaces. At this point the initial sweetness and freshness of the opening notes are barely there, instead, the amber has developed making the fragrance dry, slightly powdery, and resinous-sweet. The spices join with the cardamon, and the pepper and basil follow. Following this are the green herbaceous notes of the patchouli, the faint fruity-floral touch of the osmanthus, and a bit of projecting but inoffensive musk.Calvin Klein One Shock does not last very long. For those who still have the party boy attitude and want to have fun, but who also want to start adding a pinch of spice and personality to their fragrances, this is an excellent choice.
Top Notes:Lavender, Clementine, Cucumber
Middle Notes:Cardamom, Pepper, Basil, Osmanthus
Base Notes: Tobacco, Amber, Patchouli, Woodsy notes, Musk
6. Class and Masculinity: Terre d'Hermes Eau de Toilette By Hermès
Terre d'Hermes is a woody spicy fragrance for men. This fragrance just exudes class and masculinity; it is perfect for the office environment.
It opens with a moderate to strong projection of sweet, citrus, green, spicy notes. The opening is fresh, classy, mature, elegant, and inviting. The orange, vetiver, and pepper are prominent notes. The orange is a delectable, sweet, citrus, and mildly sour note, it feels natural, juicy, and inviting.
The vetiver is the note that makes the fragrance feel mature and classy, earthy, grassy, woody, and green. The vetiver and cedar combine to create a great balance. The pepper brings a spicy touch that enhances both featured notes. As the fragrance moves towards its dry down, the cedar develops into a very fresh, bright, woody note. The rest of the notes are there to provide support but don’t have any significant role, the faint green touch of the patchouli, and a sweet resinous touch of the benzoin are the most noticeable support notes.
Terre d'Hermes lasts well at about 6 hours, and it projects well for up to 4 hours.
Top Notes: Orange, Grapefruit
Middle Notes:Pepper, Pelargonium
Base Notes:Vetiver, Cedar, Patchouli, Benzoin
