Collection of men's fragrances

Summer is well and truly over and even Autumn is making way for those chilly days, so for those of you accustomed to matching your scent in harmony with mother nature or those already halfway through a particular favorite cologne and willing to dabble, you could prepare for winter by choosing one of my best fragrances for men with warm middle notes with hints of a woody base.

Below, I’ve selected 4 brands, those woody, leathery and spicy notes a common ingredient and vital for an aftershave worn in a colder climate. Stay warm and smelling good this winter and let the aftershaves envelope you and the ladies in a miasma of fragrant warmth.

Optimistic is a refreshing tonic from Paul Smith, and although fresh, it still maintains those spicy notes for warmth. This fragrance is a mix of citrus, warm spicy notes of pepper and cardamom. Base notes consist of a sensual mix of cedar wood, vetiver and amber.

All notes are full of vitality and energy, creating a positive and feel-good statement. Paul Smith drew inspiration from the 60s: “Despite the times we’re living in, the youth should hope for an optimistic vision of the future, just like they did in the 60s “flower power” era”.

Optimistic is one winter warmer suitable for all occasions.
