10 Men’s Fragrances to Launch in 2022 – Masculin.com

We are always looking to find the “best scent”, the one that pleases. For yourself and those around you. But be aware that there are some popular fragrances, popular with many men, that should be avoided. Because they are very popular and won’t let you isolate yourself!

So, in order for your eau de toilette to continue to make you different (if not unique), here is a 100% foolproof (regardless) of 10 perfumes for men that will never wear again. 2022.

Why don’t we recommend these fragrances for men?

We say it and we do it again, but we can set things straight: strictly speaking, there is nothing against these perfumes. But by smelling them everywhere, seeing their advertising everywhere, we are close to overdose (or Loverdose, as we say at Diesel).

For the person who just wants to smell good, these 10 perfumes do their job well ; for those who want to use it as a weapon of seduction or difference, you need to show more imagination!

Also find a list of perfumers “who achieved their success” and “olfactory missteps” to avoid in the book Perfumes for Men – The best choice.

1. One Million by Paco Rabanne

One cannot really say that subtlety is the hallmark of Paco Rabanne. At least in the perfume industry. Criticism for advertisements such as bottles of his creations… and the drinks themselves.

A million is the best proof of this page you know I think (like Invictus). We recognize this eau de toilette at first glance with its bottle in the shape of a gold ingot (very nice, we have to agree).

On the nose, there are citrus fruits (especially grapefruit) on top, not diminished by mint and rose. We have a piece of wood on the back, with some hints of leather and amber. Opulent, but good… until another time !

2. Fierce by Abercrombie & Fitch

Paco Rabanne, the use of Abercrombie and simplicity in one word seems utopian. The brand has always received attention for its ready-made stores (bodyguards at the entrance, bra models during the inauguration, etc.).

Because of its Fierce scent, it is more difficult for men. The name alone is enough to create something evil (“fierce” can be translated as “ferocious” or “controversial” in French). In terms of composition, Abercrombie & Fitch’s eau de cologne relies on citrus fruits (orange, lemon), but also fir and cardamom. This herbal perfume doesn’t cut it… just like its bottle. Some men like it… and some women do too!

3. Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani

Acqua di Gio is among the best perfumes for men. So one might be tempted to think that Armani makes a perfume so to speak. In addition to that, as we said at the beginning of the article, we want men to show more creativity, to become more experienced in the perfume industry.

In fact, Acqua di Gio is a wonderful perfume, with its notes of bergamot, green mandarin and jasmine. With khaki, he can rely on a “little something”. Well, but here’s the thing: launched in 1996, the Giorgio Armani fragrance had its day (we told you it was 100% negative!).

4. Kouros by Yves Saint Laurent

It may seem odd, but some of the fragrances mentioned in this selection are part of… men’s fragrances that women love! This is the case of Kouros, born Saint-Laurent, born in 1981.

It is one of the most emblematic fougères of the men’s room, a water that represents the style of the 1980s. Inspired by ancient Greece, this perfume is intended to express male status, a symbol of power and virility. This search for perfection and truth is what makes us want to do without Kouros in truth (and still reminds us of Invictus by Paco Rabanne).

For the balance, the perfumer Pierre Bourdon did a good job, skillfully combining citron and bergamot. In the heart, and in the base, are jasmine, coriander, and cedar. The result is bold but cool. Reason enough to give this Kouros a second chance?

5. Cold water by Davidoff

Peppermint, lavender, amber. A blue bottle that evokes the smell of the sea. Presented in this way, Cool Water has the usual summer waters: a light scent, which should not last long but we will enjoy the smell.

In fact, that’s what this Cool Water gives us… but maybe more. We wish there was more nuance to this “cool” scent, but it still strikes a chord in the 1990s.. With the return of this decade, some of you will be tempted to fall for this Davidoff fragrance. Why not ? But for real, in 2022, we will be back…

6. Sauvage by Dior

We may not make friends by including Dior in this selection of perfumes to ban … Not so good, we take the risk, while Eau Sauvage reminds us of the first in our ranking of perfumes for men. very clear!

But to be honest, it seems that Dior wants to copy his glorious old man. Alain Delon gave way to Johnny Depp to introduce this new Sauvage from 2015. A rebel and character for the drunk and… rebellion bad thing ! Do you see them coming, my big bastards?

By combining Calabrian bergamot with vanilla absolute, with a woody amber scent, François Demachy, the Dior perfumer, read his lesson well. Yes, Sauvage “smells good”. But our “opinion” above all, the Parisian house has everything in its advertising campaign. And that makes us laugh!

7. Drakkar Noir by Guy Laroche

This iconic men’s fragrance will blow out its 40 candles in 2022. A life that makes it a safe wall, a great success.

Lavender, lemon and tangerine try to stand up to a mix of spices, coriander and juniper, before cedar and vetiver add their two cents. The result is an explosion, especially after the initial melting. We find this eau de toilette to be a great change.

On the other hand, we remain skeptical about the “Viking seducer” side (Guy Laroche evokes “the humble pleasure of the perfume of man”) and the black minimalist. On the other hand, if you’re a fan of Thor, we’re sure you’ll fall for this scent!

8. The Man by Jean-Paul Gaultier

Do we have to give this perfume away? Do we need to say why we want to stop using it in 2022?

We love Jean-Paul Gaultier, his style, his world, his works. We especially like her Husband’s bottle, her Christmas boxes. And strictly speaking, we have nothing against this perfume. When we don’t see him for about 3 kilometers down the road and all the young men are dressed one day or another.

So that, for a young man who wants to prove himself, Gaultier’s Male can be considered a “must see”. For others, dare to think outside the box, name Zeus!

9. Bossed Bottled by Hugo Boss

We can almost copy-paste the first paragraph about this perfume: in many ways, Boss Bottled reminds us of a man. Since its launch in 1998, this fragrance by Hugo Boss (now by Chris Hemsworth) has been considered to achieve male success. It is necessary to show a reliable person, who knows how to grow with the opportunities to stay on top of the situation.

A simple recipe, not to mention simple, in the form of sales and water itself (apple, cinnamon, lavender, bergamot, oak moss). We know, but the brand knows how to do better, if only with Boss Bottled Night, Boss Bottled Oud (albeit a little bit, but the oud loves that!) or The Scent.

10. Land of Hermes

Are you a man? Do you like sports? Do you want to smell good? Then you’ll love Terre d’Hermès perfume. Yes, we are looking for something small, but this is what the brand intends to tell us (every year, during Roland Garros).

Of course, Terre d’Hermès is a great men’s perfume, especially in its eau de parfum range. As for the eau de toilette, this gives pride of place to citrus fruits (lemon and orange), as well as geranium and woody notes. For summer, it’s a good choice. Don’t be surprised by the thoughts of the person lying 2 meters from you on the beach…

As you can see, this list should not be taken literally (although), the idea above all is to encourage you to think outside the box when buying a new perfume. . Then we take this opportunity to remind you that in 2022, the perfume sector is lagging behind in terms of environmental protection. What if this is the main reason to ban perfumes from this list?
