Frag Ad Commercials

Whenever I'm sitting there wondering how the heck to pronounce a colognes name I just check out the commercial on it (seriously, how have you been pronouncing Yves Saint Laurent?). Some of the commercial ads are pretty cool and creative also. Here's some ads from some of the fragrances that I listed in my previous post.

Terre d'Hermes

Armani Code

Mont Blanc Legend

7 Of The Top Men's Cologne That You Should Try

If you are a man looking to find his signature scent, look no further. Below are a list of 7 of the top mens cologne that you definitely need to check out.

Mont Blanc Legend - The perfumer Olivier Pescheux (known for Azzaro Chrome Legend and Paco Rabanne 1 Million) is the nose behind this fresh aromatic fougere fragrance. A sweet and fruity men's cologne, the stand out notes are pineapple, red apple, lavendar, bergamot and dried fruits. Although it's a sweet fragrance, it still retains its masculine touch which is nice. It is often compared to Abercrombie Fierce which can be a good or bad thing depending on your tastes. Overall a nice fruity aromatic fragrance that is very popular for men and the ladies buying fragrances for their men.

Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme – Definitely and oldie but goodie fragrance. This woody aquatic fragrance is dominated by its citrus accords. The special note in this cologne is Yuzu. As an aquatic fragrance, this top men’s cologne is great for wearing during the day in the summer and spring months. This men’s cologne has some insane longevity going up to 10 hours on the skin and a great sillage. A huge hit among the ladies. This cologne is a must have in any fragrance enthusiasts collection

Liz Claiborne Curve for Men  – Similar to Mont Blanc Legend due to the pineapple top note (and cheap price), this aromatic fragrance sports tasty fresh, spicy and citrus accords.  It is also very cheap at less than $30 for more than 6oz of juice and the ladies go wild for it. This men’s cologne is a shining example that you don’t have to break the bank to smell nice and get attention due to your aromatics. Great for the college kid looking to set himself apart from the crowd. This scent was launched in 1996.

The One by D&G – The One by D&G is a soft and mild scent. If you’re looking for huge projection and sillage, look elsewhere. Its slight sweetness and spiciness give it an elegant, sexy feel. The notes of tobacco, amber and ginger stand out the most in this woody-oriental composition. Definitely one to try and would work great for a job interview or something to wear at work since it wears close to the skin.

Armani CodeGiorgio Armani house produces some great fragrances. Armani Code is no exception. As with Acqua Di Gio, this men’s fragrance is very popular and for good reason. The opening is citrusy due to the top notes of bergamot and lemon. The guaiac wood notes soon become noticeable and then it’s all leather and tonka bean from there. Armani Code is a very elegant, sexy scent. Best worn on colder nights as it tends to die down rather quickly in hotter weather. This top men’s cologne debuted in 2004 and won awards for the Men’s Fragrance of the Year in 2006.

Burberry London for Men -  London for men is an Oriental-Spicy cologne that dries down into a smooth tobacco, cinnamon and leathery scent. It is the quintessential fall fragrance. Best worn at nighttime, London for Men is possibly the best men’s frag Burberry has put out. Great projection and longevity. A must have in a man’s cologne collection.

Terre d'Hermes – An absolutely stunning fragrance that is truly unique. This masculine masterpiece of a fragrance has a citrusy earthy vibe going on with opening notes of orange and grapefruit and a dry down of vetiver and cedar that do not disappoint.  This fragrance can be worn by both men and women depending on how your skin chemistry reacts. Very high quality men’s cologne with long lasting longevity and a moderate to heavy sillage. Terre d'Hermes is considered by many men to be one of the top men's cologne of all time.
