Carolina Herrera makes some fantastic scents for both men and women. While these fragrances are pretty popular, the men’s scents haven’t been overused and too common like something such as Acqua Di Gio or 1 Million. Herrera has a whole line of colognes which are both unique and smell really good. Plus, they aren’t terribly expensive, probably in the upper moderate price range. For this list, I have selected 6 scents which I feel are the best of the lot. As always, I have linked each to their page on fragrancex.com for more info and ease of puchase.
212 Vip by Carolina Herrera Eau De Toilette Spray for Men, 3.4 Ounce
I’ve had to update the list to include this gem. 212 VIP is a fantastic for the colder months of the year, especially the nightlife. It’s got notes of vodka, amber, lime caviar, mint, pepper, and ginger among others. Love it. Read my full review.
Chic– A sweet fragrance which is highlighted by lemon and melon notes, as well as, cinnamon which gives it a bit more body. Chic is a beautiful cologne that isn’t too heavy but it quite seductive.
212– A fresh and borderline unisex fragrance with notes of mandarin, grapefruit, woods, and sandalwood. The greener notes in here really shine and it has a bit of spice to it. Good in warm weather. My 212 Full Review
Herrera– The namesake of the fragrance line, Herrera is a blend of tobacco, citrus, amber, and musk notes. The tobacco gives it a warm masculine scent which is highlighted by a spicy undertone. This is a long lasting and well-projecting cologne for guys who like something that is refined and manly.
212 Sexy– A smooth and seductive scent from Carolina Herrera. 212 Sexy is a cologne that has a fantastic vanilla note that is fresh and sweet and somewhat similar to Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier.
CH– This might be the best of the bunch, depending on one’s tastes. It features notes of grapefruit, bergamot, nutmeg, jasmine, violet, leather, and amber. It is a sweet sugary scent with a leather note and vanilla, which gives it an extra smoothness. The dry down is very nice.
