Best Colognes for Date Night

For this post, I want to present some cologne options for men when having a date night with a lady. Now, I’ve already addressed the best night colognes for summer and the most complemented fragrances and while there is some overlap between them, I want to focus this post on scents that are fresh, clean, masculine, and/or gourmand in their aromas. This is by no means a complete list, rather, it is a good starting point and there are plenty of options for almost any scenario and if not…check out some other posts on here. As always, I have linked each out to its page on Amazon for more info and ease of purchase.


Carolina Herrera Ch Eau De Toilette Spray for Men, 3.4 Ounce
This is a beautiful fragrance by Carolina Herrera. It features notes of grapefruit, bergamot, nutmeg, jasmine, violet, leather, and amber. It is a sweetly sugary aroma with  vanilla and leather, which gives it  a rich and warm smoothness. The dry down is quite lovely.



Armani Code By Giorgio Armani For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 4.2 Oz.
Very attractive scent that works well for going out for a night on the town. My review



Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male By Jean Paul Gaultier For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 4.2 Oz.
The cologne has been extremely popular for a long time and for good reason. It is warm, seductive, and fresh. Ladies love this stuff. Review

A wonderful blend of spice and woodsy elements. This fragrance is masculine and full of depth.Burberry London Review.


Dior Homme By Christian Dior For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 3.4 Ounces

The One By Dolce and Gabbana for Men, 3.3 Ounce

One of my favorites in terms of smell. However, it simply doesn’t last long on my skin and I know others have this problem too…but not everyone. If it works for you, you’re lucky because The One is amazing.


Rochas Man Eau de Toilette, Woody Gourmand, 3.3 fl. oz.

Sweet and warm gourmand with a strong coffee influence. This is one for the wintertime but it gets attention.



Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit De L’homme Eau de Toilette Spray, 3.3-Ounce
An entry from Yves Saint Laurent. With notes of bergamot, lavender, cedar, vetiver, and other floral notes…La Nuit is definitely a winner come autumn and is generally very well received. Here’s my review
