Those who climbed the peak of self-love during the lockdown were those who sat alone in their home office and still put on their perfume in the morning. Smelling good and only for yourself and not for others is probably the most generous act of seducing yourself and proves the power inherent in an enchanting scent. In the meantime, those who have been vaccinated, those who have recovered and those who have been tested are heading out the door again and into the bar, the restaurant and the club.
We are in contact with the world again and the world is in contact with us - with all our senses. That's definitely not always a good thing. Especially when our olfactory organ is used to the scent oasis at home and is now immediately exposed to a mix of alcohol and sweat. The only thing that can fight against this is a unique, pleasant smell and that lies dormant in the ten trendy fragrances for men in 2024.
Jimmy Choo's standard fragrance for men needs a confident character as the wearer. The reason for this is the very woody note of the Eau du Toilette, which is perfect for all seasons of the day. The scent is only suitable for late hours when you are spending a cozy evening among friends. If you're going out to party, it's better to choose a long-lasting perfume and not an eau du toilette because its effect wears off too quickly.
A wonderful autumn scent for men that lasts particularly long is Kalan from the Parisian perfumery Parfum de Marly. The scent is named after one of the most famous horses from Louis XV's stable. Kalan's strength and speed helped him achieve that fame. Because of its longevity, the fragrance is particularly suitable for wearing at night at a party or in a club - although this is more likely in posh establishments where charismatic men conquer the night.
Named after the Greek god of desirous love, Eros by Versace is aimed at sensual men. Above all, the scent notes of tonka beans and amber underline the demands of a desirable lover. Mint and lemon give Eros a pleasant freshness that symbolizes the twinkle in love. For men who know what they want but don't always take themselves too seriously.
When is a man a man? Probably only when he no longer chases after the cliched masculinity and no longer feels compelled to display it clearly. Unfortunately, this only succeeds when he knows how to captivate people with his charm and noble reserve. In 2024, however, this realization still doesn't seem to have sunk into men's heads, or they simply have neither charisma nor noble reserve. Even today, the (supposedly) stronger sex in the Howler Monkey Club compete for the most embarrassing appearance - an unbuttoned satin shirt and a vodka bottle in an ice bucket send their greetings.
But it doesn't have to be. A particularly elegant unisex fragrance is recommended to all men who have already arrived in the new millennium. You can find it in Creed's Millesime for Women
Of course, Chanel cannot be missing from a list of trendy perfumes. An all-time classic from the luxury brand is its Bleu perfume. It is a fresh, woody scent that is perfect as a daytime perfume.
Sauvage by Dior is less of a trendy fragrance and more of a classic that never disappoints. Only a few fragrances are as universally applicable as the Singature perfume from the French luxury brand. When creating the fragrance, François Demachy was inspired by the dusk of a desert. That magical moment when the heat of the day gives way to a cool night. The result is an elegant and timeless mix of bergamot and vanilla in the top notes that can be worn day or night and in any season. A must in the modern man's fragrance cabinet.
Rum in hand, cigar in mouth and sitting in a deep leather armchair - this is the essence of Replica Jazz Club by Martin Margiela. Inspired by a New York jazz club, Margiela designed this high-quality eau du toilette. Although the scent is woody, Replica Jazz Club seduces the nose with lemon, pepper and nerol in the top notes. The base note is dominated by tobacco and vanilla. A must for every stylish jazz lover who wants to breathe in the spirit of their favorite music wherever they go.
Polo Black by Ralph Lauren is one of the standard scents for every man's perfume closet. The Eau du Toilette impresses with its puristic bottle, which contains a woody, fruity scent. Tonka bean meets patchouli as a base note. The top note, on the other hand, is fruity and offers the nose a mix of mango, mandarin and lime. Sage and sandalwood round off the scent in the heart note. This makes Polo Black a versatile all-rounder that feels particularly comfortable in the dark season.
A perfume like a late afternoon walk in the forests of Tuscany is Roman Wood by Ermenegildo Zegna. This scent reminds its wearer of late summer and invites you to feel the warm rays of sunshine on your skin one last time. For some people, the scent may not be heavy enough for fall and winter. This is especially the case when the weather is rather dreary and cloudy. On a sunny winter day, Roman Wood by Ermenegildo Zegna exudes a fresh lightness that many people long for in the dark months.
At the end of the ten trend fragrances for men in 2024, another classic must serve: Burberry for Men. As usual for the British luxury brand, the Eau du Toilette is a classy fragrance for the day. It is the freshest scent in the list, with mainly notes of lavender and mint. Burberry for Men is more of a daytime perfume for spontaneous men who want to be prepared for all eventualities after work or a trip without wearing a fragrance that is too intrusive.
