Spring Scents for Men

Spring Scents for Men
Spring calls for a new scent and men are hardly excluded from that. After all, this is not about following a trend; it’s about choosing what’s right for the weather. The last season, Winter, got us all hooked on heavier scents and not because we adore wood and spice. The cold temperature slows down evaporation which begs us to wear warming, rich scents.

Now that spring is here, the extra heat intensifies scents. So, it’s time to tone down and choose light, refreshing fragrances. If you are one of those guys that can get confused on what to wear for spring or you are the thoughtful woman shopping for a new spring scent for the man in your life, here’s how to do it.

Remember to keep it light. One way to make sure you are complementing the lightness of spring is to choose scents that are less concentrated. For daily wear, go for eau de toilette or the more popular eau de cologne and reserve perfumes for special occasions. Not only do they blend well with the weather, they can be far less expensive than perfumes.

Go solid. Solid perfumes are quickly gaining approval from men. They are portable and great for traveling. Men don’t have to worry about breaking an expensive bottle of perfume while staying active. Solid perfumes are also perfect for spring since they are said to be less concentrated and makes softer sillage than their liquid counterparts.

Consider transitional scents from winter into spring. Perhaps you haven’t seen the last of winter yet or you feel it is still cold though it’s officially springtime. Don’t worry because you don’t have to buy a full bottle of winter fragrance. Choose transitional scents from winter into spring like Valentino Uomo and Viktor & Rolf’s Spicebomb.

Let personality guide you. Weather isn’t the only force behind perfume choice and for men, personality is a huge factor. Are you the adventurous type? The brooding and mysterious perhaps? For instance, Armani’s Acqua Di Gio and Burberry Brit for Men are designer fragrances and spring scents for men who mean business. What’s yours?

Not a floral fan? We get it. You still love your wood and spice but spring says floral and citrus. It’s alright. You may want something that at least possesses fresh and light top notes but really, as long as the scent isn’t overwhelming for the temperature, go ahead and wear it. If it reminds you of spring, even if there’s no hint of lime or lavender, pick it.

Customize. It’s all about customizing these days. So, if you can’t find the perfect spring scent for you, why don’t you just create one? You can easily find scent shops that will help you create your own botanical perfume blends or if you have the passion for making seasonal perfumes, start making your spring scents while winter is still on.

Don’t buy full-size yet.,/b> Especially if you are buying as gift, get scents in small sizes first and see if it gets you and those who like smelling scents on you, in the mood for spring.

Well ... that's it for this week. Just remember with scents ...

Life Never Smelled So Sweet!
