Top 10 Most Complimented Fragrances for Men
(Summer 2019 Edition) [0:00:00]
So, in today’s video, I’m counting down ten fragrances that are going to get you compliments
all summer. Are you ready? Let’s do it. [Music]
So, coming in at number ten we’ve got Missoni Pour Homme. This is an Italian fragrance inspired by the
sunny Mediterranean landscape in which it was created. For the top notes, we’re going to see green
lemon and grapefruit. For the middle heart notes, we have ginger. Now, for the base notes, it’s really woody,
we’ve got sandalwood and oak. So, when you smell this fragrance you can
imagine yourself on a boat out on the Mediterranean during the summer just enjoying the weather
and the beautiful sunshine. Coming in at number nine, we’ve got Neroli
Portofino by Tom Ford. Now, for the top note here, we’re going
to see bergamot and we’re going to see two types of orange. We’re going to see bitter and mandarin. Then, sliding into the middle into those heart
notes, we’re going to smell neroli and we’re also going to pick up African orange flower. Now, for the base note, this is going to be
really faint, but we’re just going to smell a bit of ambrette. So, this is a very fruity fragrance. It’s also a unisex fragrance, so your girlfriend
may steal this. But, really, it’s the citrusy smell right
here which is going to make this great for summer. So, coming in at number eight, we’ve got
Dior Sauvage. So, the top note here is going to be bergamot
and pepper. So, the middle heart notes here are going
to be Sichuan pepper, pink pepper, and lavender. So, for the base notes, we’ve got cedar,
labdanum, and ambroxan. So, the bergamot, the pepper, and the lavender
that combination is a great evening fragrance for the summer for hot weather. This is something that’s going to smell
great. The only problem I’ve got with this fragrance
is it’s so common. Now, if you’re looking for a unique fragrance,
one that nobody else is going to be wearing, very few people have heard of and takes that
lavender and pepper right there on the top note, you want to check out Zaharoff Signature
Pour Homme. So, this fragrance was introduced in 2018
by my good friend, George Zaharoff. I’ve known George for almost a decade. I’ve watched the guy work, he is an artisan. And true to his word, he traveled around the
world, put in the best ingredients. So, for the top notes, we got fresh cardamom
from Guatemala, lavender from Southern France, black pepper, juicy pear, and blue cypress. In the heart middle notes, we’ve got ginger
root from India, blonde cedar from Virginia, temple oud from Indonesia, Florentine, pimenta
leaves from Jamaica, fir balsam from Canada. And the base notes, we got creamy sandalwood
from Australia, gold patchouli from Indonesia, black amber, myrrh, and frankincense from
Ethiopia. If you understand fragrance and what goes
into this, you understand that there is no synthetic, this is the best of the best. This is an artisan’s creation. And guess what? If you want a sample, George is giving those
away. I’m going to be linking in the description,
so you can go over and grab your free sample. Yes, George is sponsoring this video because
he wanted to bring attention to this amazing creation. So, go grab your free sample. They’ll send you this nice little kit, the
sample right there. I’m going to link to it down in the description. And, if you just want to buy a bottle, guys,
go over to Norstrom’s, I’m going to put the link down in the description. Now, this does sell out. It’s got amazing reviews. This is a true artisan fragrance created with
the best ingredients. I can’t stress this enough. This is an amazing fragrance. Go check it out, guys, and at least send George
a note. Amazing guy and a good friend. Coming in at number seven, Ralph Lauren Polo
Ultra Blue. So, the top notes here, we’re going to have
lemon, basil, and citron. The middle heart note is going to be ambertonic. And the base note, we’ve got wood, musk,
and salt. Now, this fragrance is all about the beach. It’s about that salt water type of smell. You feel like you’re actually near the ocean. It’s an amazing fragrance especially for
a more rugged man. Coming in at number six, we’ve got Versace
Eros. So, the top notes here, mint, green apple,
and lemon. The heart notes, tonka bean, geranium, and
ambroxan. The base notes, vanilla, vetiver, and oakmoss. This is one of my favorite fragrances. The problem is it’s very common. You’re going to have a lot of guys wearing
this especially during the summer. The top notes are going to be the dominant
notes, so that mint that green apple that lemon, that is going to be the dominant smells
from this fragrance. Coming in at number five, Davidoff Coolawater. So, for the top notes, we’ve got seawater,
mint, and lavender. For the heart note, sandalwood, jasmine, geranium,
neroli. For the base notes, tobacco, cedar, and oakmoss. It’s inexpensive and it’s a quintessential
summer fragrance. You think of that seawater mixing with those
florals going right into the tobacco, it is just a classic summer fragrance really you
can’t go wrong with. Coming in at number four, Brioni Brioni. So, the top note here really simple, we’ve
got a strong lemon. Now, for the heart note the middle notes,
we’ve got iris and magnolia. So, for the base notes, saffron and agarwood. So, what I love about this fragrance is how
simple it is. Really, it’s about the iris and the lemon. This is a very citrus-based fragrance that
isn’t going to offend anybody. You could wear it pretty much it could be
a default fragrance has a very clean summer smell to it. Coming in at number three, Acqua Di Parma
Colonia. Oranges, lemon, lavender, and rosemary with
just a touch of musk. [0:04:59]
So, this fragrance is very simple, it’s great for hot weather. The citrus fragrances as you can tell, I really
like during the summer months. They’re light, they’re ones that you can
apply, they’re not going to feel heavy, and these smell great even if you’re sweating
on a July summer day. Coming in at number two we’ve got A*Men
Ultra Zest. So, the top notes here are going to be blood
orange, tangerine, mint, and ginger. The heart notes are coffee and pepper. The base notes, tonka bean, patchouli, and
vanilla. So, for me, this fragrance, you either love
it or hate it. If you like oranges, if you like citrus, you’re
going to love this fragrance especially orange. It is intense orange. But, if you don’t, then skip this one. I put it here because I love blood oranges,
so, yes, it was high on my personal list. So, who’s number one on this list? Well, first, let me lay out three fragrances
that did not even make this list because I’ve talked about them a lot, I didn’t really
want to bring them in, I want to bring you guys something new. So, Acqua Di Gio Special Blend, I absolutely
love this one. Jeremy Fragrance gifted this to me and it
has just become one of my favorites. John Varvatos Artisan Pure, another one I
picked up with Jeremy in London. I absolutely love it. Creed Aventus, so Aaron Marino introduced
me to that one. I absolutely love it as well. So, who’s the number one fragrance? Guys, are you ready? Drum roll please. [Drum roll sound] Creed Virgin Island Water. So, the top notes here, coconut, lime, orange,
and bergamot. The heart notes, ginger and jasmine. The base notes, sugarcane, white musk and
white rum. So, I put this fragrance number one on my
list because I love blood orange, but I absolutely love coconut. And have a house light Creed put coconut as
the top note, the base notes I love that they’ve got rum they’ve got that bit of musk. This is simply the Caribbean in a bottle. It’s amazing fragrance. Very sweet. So, you’ll either going to like it or you’re
not and that’s why I put together this list. I love that you guys are going to disagree,
so let me know down in the comments you agree, disagree, how would you have change this up? And, guys, don’t forget, go grab your free
samples. I’m putting the link down in the description. Remember, he’s got limited quantities. They’re absolutely free. And I’m so proud of what he’s done over
at Zaharoff with this Signature Pour Homme. What’s going on? You’re still here? Guys, go watch another video, go learn how
to apply fragrance correctly. So many guys are messing this up, go check
it up. I’m linking to it down in the description. [0:07:17] End of Audio

  2. guys if you haven't tried creed: green Irish tweed, you are missing out. order a sample off ebay. you won't be disappointed. Virgin island water is a good one too.

  3. Nice video Antonio, can you maybe do a Winter edition as well please? It would really help out.

  4. I love how you break down each fragrance! I just requested my free sample! I am still trying to figure out a good fragrance to use so I really appreciate this video!

  5. I got one for ya. It’s called Dead Writers and it is beyond phenomenal. Created in the US. It has notes of vanilla, musk, tobacco, and vetiver. I’ve bought it multiple times.

  6. I think I will keep my L'eau D'Issey, Bvlgari Aqva Amara and Tommy Bahama Maritime Deep Blue (SLEEPER!!!) in rotation this summer.

  7. I loved this video.
    He explained very well these fragrances and my girl loves fruity flowery smalls and this really narrowed it down for me, also loved how he described number one as the Caribbean in a bottle. I personally love coconut and think I'll actually get a bottle or two of it.
    So thanks for doing these videos and keep doing what you do.

  8. Omg what a joke. Versace Eros for summer? Just more bad recommendations coming from this channel. People are better off researching their own summer fragrances.

  9. Great video Antonio!! I happen to be the proud owner of Zaharoff Signature Pour Homme and I absolutely love it! Upon first smell I knew it was going to be my new signature scent. Such a unique fragrance that exudes class, sophistication, and it is very masculine. Every time I wear it it makes me feel like a million bucks and I am receiving compliments all the time. May I also say that George Zaharoff is truly an inspiration and first class all the way!! I really enjoy watching his story right here on youtube and also how he worked so hard, traveling the globe to find the finest oils and ingredients to bring his creation to fruition.

  10. Just found out about this channel great content i just subscribed. Ive been really enjoying aqva amara its becoming one of my favorite aquatic's

  11. Creed aventus one of the best long lasting cologne. Indeed One of the best colognes I ever had. I get tons of compliments.

  12. Great video. Thanks mate.
    I have been using bleu for years and i feel like i wanna try something new and this helps. Also after testing from clive to cool water, i feel tom ford is one guy that takes perfume making seriously. Rest of them just vontract it to whoever and only care about how the bottle looks. May be i am wrong but thats just my take on it

  13. Antonio, I've recently been promoted to the front office from the factory floor. I've always kept my look pretty clean but, I needed a clear upgrade. I followed some of the tips you've outlined and this is what happened:

    After my style change, I got picked on a lot and called a few names. Everything was in fun and know one really knew me outside of work and I typically wear a lot of dress shirts due to their versatility. I bought a pair of brown leather dress shoes to go with some dark jeans and that makes up my day to day look. Once the shock of my style transformation wore off (the factory manager said that I was going to be confused with him for who was actually in charge). I started getting introduced to the executives and other higher-ups as they would come and tour our facility. Recently I was asked to give a tour on the spot (a job usually reserved for engineers) . I'm getting invited to after work "business meetings" where the managers and I just drink beer and charge the company. This is odd to me because on paper…. I'm not a suit. Infact I'm the bottom rung of my ladder and make $15/hr on a job that doesn't require an education (I have an Associate Degree, not needed).

    Point being I'm elevating myself beyond the expectation. Also… cologne: everyone loves it. I know Armani Code has seen a dip in the rest of the world but, I'm always getting compliments and being asked what it is.

  14. I would like to see a video on bologna constructed shoes, everyone talks about goodyear welt, Blake stitch and rapid Blake stitch. From what I hear they are extremely comfortable, great quality, and look amazing so why are they not getting any attention?

  15. Great list!
    I personally love acqua di parma fico di amalfi, lalique white, basil & neroli by jo malone and ofcourse my number 1 favourite summer scent: Creed Virgin island water :')

  16. I like this video but I have to disagree with cool water. That scent is too old and not unique enough to stand out these days. I can’t vouch for cool water. It was any favorite over a decade ago.

  17. Interesting video and I've sent away for my free sample. 😊 I love good smelling cologne, but find that most designer fragrances have some kind of irritating chemical undertone to them that turns me off. Polo Ultra Blue is one of those scents, unfortunately. I think it's the ambertonic that nauseates me as it dries down. I do like the original Polo Blue, though. Sauvage EDT in the summertime is a huge no for me. The EDP is much nicer to my nose, smoother and more mellow and I would recommend it, but the EDT has too much pepper and ambroxan to be worn in high temperatures without making someone gag. Surprised nothing from YSL or Prada made the list as the YSL L'homme line is wearable in all seasons (La Nuit might be a bit too spicy in high heat from what I hear) and Prada L'Homme is said to be an excellent seasonless scent (along with Luna Rossa and its flankers).

  18. Creed is garbage. Super expensive and the batches never smell the same because they like that "artisan touch". Considering how how much you pay and you can't get a consistent product I suggest everyone to skip it.

  19. Bret Baier is that you??? Jk :p. I like your list. Been wanting to try Creed Virgin Island Water for a while now, but I haven't sampled it yet. Gonna try to buy a vial soon.

  20. I ordered the sample of the Zaharoff fragrance and I was pleasantly surprised with the simple packaging that showed attention to detail (for a sample) and it was personally signed on the inside as well. To think that time was taken to do so was thoughtful and classy at the same time. Love the fragrance! Thx for the advice!

  21. you say pick your own scent… What if you have no idea which smells good or not. They are all different but I have no idea which one is good or not. I like them all to the same degree

  22. My husband has gotten more compliments from his bath amd body works lotions and sprays than anything else….

  23. I was really, and I mean really, impressed when I received my sample and discovered that George Zaharoff personally wrote and signed a thank you to me for my support. A class act. I wish I could post a picture of my signed sample from George. As for the cologne, it's a fantastic and nostalgic aroma for me personally as the rich tones melt into a soft and embracing scent reminiscent of some colognes I used to love smelling when I was kid in the late 70's early 80's. This cologne will pleasantly set you apart from others in the room. Prepare to be noticed.

  24. I'm sorry Antonio, but i think explaining fragrances is not your forte. You only read the notes and give a brief explanation about it, unlike your in depth explanation about suits, shirt, or shoes. It's like you're reading us a book.

  25. Not sure I can trust a guy who puts cool water on a list but only gives Aventus an honorable mention.. also, cool water instead of green Irish tweed?

  26. I just got it I heard the story and the heart that went into it and the scent sounds just like what I'm looking for I got the 95 dollor bottle of zaharoff see how long that lasts befor I buy a bigger bottle

  27. It's amazing how big and successful this channel is, because every time i see this guy, I never think he dresses well. I never look at him and go, "now THAT guy has style." Obviously I must be in the minority. To each his own

  28. I like Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt, but it doesn't last. Jenny Glo sells clones that last much longer. As of now, WS&SS is sold out. Also, I can almost bet her version is synthetic (whereas Jo Malone is natural); that has alot to do with longevity as well).

  29. I think you should go back
    Way back and compare oldies like Lagerfeld English Leather
    Brute
    I’ll be in s store, the clerk will say try this its new and cheap $65
    Wow it smells like Brute

  30. I'm from Costa Rica where weather is 80 to 90 degrees F all year around so I'm big into fresh fragrances. My top summer fragrances are:
    1. John Varvatos Artisan Pure
    2. Acqua di Gio Profumo (mainly evening wear)
    3. Bvlgari Aqva Amara
    4. Guerlain L'homme Ideal Cologne
    5. Versace Dylan Blue
    6. Issey Miyake L'eau D'issey Pour Homme
    7. D&G Light Blue Intense
    8. Versace Man Eau Fraiche
    9. Parada L'homme (mainly office wear)
    10. Mont Blanc Individuel
    Honorable mentions:
    1. Carolina Herrera Chic for Men
    2. Lacoste White
    3. Nautica Voyage
    I have received many compliments wearing all these. Nice vid Antonio! 👍🏽

  31. Versace Dylan Blue is also one of the most versatile fragrances right now and you can never go wrong with it! Btw great video Antonio !! 😊🔥

  32. Eros does not have the performance it used to have. So now its junk. And missoni bad performance also. Everything today has to be super oversprayed to get a little projection out of it. Is there anything today that is really worth it?
