1. Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani
Acqua Di Gio’s sexy, clean, long-lasting fragrance was inspired by a vacation Armani took to the majestic coastal town of Pantellerie, Italy. He took a whiff of Mediterranean paradise, put it in a bottle and then passed the bottle along to millions of people. It’s now the gold standard of affordable men’s cologne.

2. Jean Paul Gaultier by Jean Paul Gaultier
Aka the “man in the can” due to its rather unique packaging, this cologne for men boasts an irresistible scent firing on all cylinders thanks to a sophisticated, layered blend of botanicals. There is a directness to the fragrance in that it hits you right away, but a complexity that comes from certain notes giving way to others over time.

Expect a heavy-hitting aromatic profile that leaves no room for doubt when a man with a plan has entered the building.

9. Sauvage by Dior
The name needs no introduction, Dior Sauvage is a fragrance for the bold and wild at heart. It was inspired by big open spaces of ozone blue skies that lie above a rocky desert-type landscape. It is unmistakably masculine that will bring out the best in even the most average guy. It’s a burst of freshness with top notes of reggio bergamot and a heart note of ambroxan which is very uniquely Dior. One of my personal favorites when going out at night.
