Top Perfumes for Men

Wearing a perfume is considered as one of the rituals of a decent man. However, in India, men usually skip this ritual. Not that there aren’t any decent men here. Otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this. But there is lot of ignorance out there. Talking of ignorance, while preparing this list of Top Perfumes for Men, I came across hundreds of negative reviews on online sites. All of them complaining that the scent of perfumes bought online don’t last long. You can see such kind of reviews on all sites including Amazon. Most of these customers think they got fake perfumes. While the actual fact is – EDTs, especially affordable ones don’t last too long. Max. 3-4 hours.

List of Affordable Top Perfumes for Men

This is the list of top Perfumes for Men in EDT (Eau De Toilette) category. EDTs usually consists of 5 to 15% fragrance oil, while the rest is all alcohol and water.That’s why they tend to evaporate faster. Therefore, the fragrance lingers on for about 3 – 6 hours and gradually fades away. Here in this list of top perfumes for Men, I will include handpicked 100 ml packs with price tag of below Rs. 1000 /-.

Jeanne Arthes Cobra EDT for Men

Top Perfumes for Men CobraJeanne Arthes Cobra Eau De Toilette is the first in my list of affordable top perfumes for Men. This perfume was launched in 2008 as a woody fragrance for Men. This fragrance is very complex. It starts out very citric and dries down to a vanilla/spicy scent. To begin with, it has a strong spicy fresh fragrance. Immediately after spraying you will notice top notes – bergamot, amalfi lemon, orange blossom, rosemary and coriander. These spices dominate the scent till they evaporate and middle notes, such as cinnamon, lavender, angelica and ginger take over. After about 2 hours, base notes like sandalwood, tonka bean, oakmoss and vanilla will dominate the scent. This finally leaves an awesome, warm, musky scent with cool, metallic contrasts and spices lingering. The total effect of the Jeanne Arthes Cobra last for about 5-6 hours which is decent for a perfume at affordable price.

Brut EDT for Men

Top Perfumes for Men Brut

BRUT has been making affordable perfumes since 1960s. Most of their perfumes smell better than their price would suggest.  I was amazed at how sweet it they are for a man’s scent. Yet, BRUT Glass EDT has a strong presence. The strong composition of alcohol makes the scent even stronger. It’s really hot to put on, burning the skin like a mans fragrance should. It also leaves a waxy finish to the skin, which is also not a bad thing, though unusual. Being a summer scent, it is ideal for Indian subcontinent. This is actually evident because for its popularity. We see this sexy bottle every now and then in a perfume shop or someone’s dressing table.

Brut Glass EDT will suit a masculine, macho image. It is for dominant personalities who believe they can lead. Brut is known for instilling both sexy and sophisticated image at the same time! It is macho, but a macho with sensibility- someone who is daring and brave, but not criminal.

Almost as soon as the perfume is sprayed, Heart Notes of Jasmine, Geranium & Ylang Ylang start playing. Within an hour Base Notes of Sandalwood,  Oak Moss, Vanilla Musk start dominating till another hour. Then the perfume slowly fades away as it evaporates, depending on the climate. It will usually take more than 3-4 liberal sprays to make this perfume last long. Else it will just linger for about 2 – 2 and a half hours.

Best time to wear – Casual / All Day

Evaflor Whisky Homme Sport EDT

Top Perfumes for Men Whiskey Homme Sport

Whiskey Homme Sport Eau de Toilette is the next in line in my list of top perfumes for Men in below Rs. 1000 segment. This one is meant to be a sports perfume. One quick spray and the ginger burst reminds of Dior Homme sport. Maybe like imitation of the Dior formula. But this one is much cheaper but quite good. It has strong notes, especially after the beginning, where the top notes are mandarin orange, cardamom and lemon. This comes down to tonka bean, ginger and sage which start the strong essence as the heart notes. Within minutes of the middle notes evaporating, sandalwood, amber and patchouli take over as the base notes. These add the much liked ‘zing’ to this perfume. Whiskey Homme Sport is also known to take its time to grow on the user. People usually like it more and more after every use.

Playboy Vegas EDT for Men

Top Perfumes for Men Playboy Vegas EDT

“Some people are born lucky…” is the motto of the new Playboy concept and Press to Play collection. The series has four fragrances named Hollywood, Malibu, Miami and Vegas. There is a reason I have placed Playboy Vegas in this list of top perfumes for Men within the Rs. 1000 budget. I find it is more popular, better accepted and ofcourse personally I like it. Playboy Vegas has a decadent oriental-fougere fragrance, which opens with delicate apple, basil and tea. Fine scent of lavender in a heart is surrounded with jasmine and geranium, which contribute to elegance of the composition. Base notes incorporate musk, tonka, vanilla and georgywood (combination of wood and amber) leaving a sensual and exciting effect.

Although the scent is very masculine, yet Vegas has a soft projection. This is a very soft perfume. So soft that it’s barely there. It’s like a light body mist which you have to apply cleverly to make it work for you. Better spray thrice in the neck / chest area and two quick sprays on the back of your palms if wearing a full sleeves shirt. Or if you are donning a t-shirt or something short sleeve, aim the nozzle near the wrist for best results. Vegas is a geranium and tea scent so it will linger on. The floral really stands out and you will be barely able to make out the lavender. This is a very subtle floral with geranium, some tea, although this is like a cherry or licorice flavored ice tea. And it’s sweet. Infact very sweet.

Best time to wear – Office / Meeting Clients / Outing with Girlfriend

Carrera Classic EDT for Men

Top Perfumes for Men Carrera Classic

Making it to this list of inexpensive top perfumes for men, the Carrera Classic is a refreshing, spicy, lavender, amber fragrance. It is a mild perfume with very soft smell of a blend of aromatic citrus and spices with hints of wood.  It is best suited for men who don’t need strong perfumes and are choose sophisticated demeanor over dominance. Top notes are bergamot, lavender, coriander and rosemary; middle notes are anise, ginger, cloves and jasmine; base notes are cedar, tonka bean, musk, leather, sandalwood and oakmoss.

For best results, avoid applying on clothes or fabric. Rather, take short sprays behind neck and on wrists to make the fragrance last long. On fabric, this perfume evaporates very fast. Maybe this is the reason why so many people end up writing negative reviews in online shops. Well, they just need to understand perfumes and apply in the right manner.

UCB EDT for Men

Top Perfumes for Men Lets move

This popular fragrance from United Colors of Benetton is targeted at young college goers. And for them, I thought why not include Let’s Move in our list of top perfumes for men in the Rs. 1000 range. It is made for dynamic, self-confident and athletic men; those sporty types who are always on the move. Let’s Move is a refreshing scent that provides energy and optimism.

The composition is a fougere – ambery – spicy. A burst of bergamot, mandarin and pepper leads to the heart of aromatic cocktail of geranium and lavender fused with masculine cedar wood. The base notes are warm and balsamic featuring tonka bean, amber and vanilla. This affordable perfume has a sharp fresh top note ,which eventually fades away, in like around 10 mins. After that, it has a lasting middle note of cedar which is very prominent and gradually fades to vanilla-ish smell which last for 3-4 hours . It smells really good for its cheap price tag.

Lets Move has soothing fragrance, not too harsh on nose. Not too strong. Hence, if you perspire heaviliy, this might not suit you much

Best time to wear – College / Gatherings / Parties
