Most Complemented Men’s Colognes 2016: Women’s Favorite Scents

Why do people wear cologne? Some are enthusiasts who take fragrance making to be an art form and have their own personal tastes and styles regardless of what others think. Some, like exclusivity. Some people, like me, appreciate the design and want to smell good as well. However, for most of the market in the men’s space, they buy cologne because they want to smell good, get complements, and attract ladies. As such, I thought that I’d do a post on the most complemented men’s colognes 2016 that have time and time again proven to be among women’s favorite scents for us to wear. A lot of this is based on my own personal experience, as someone who has tried tons of different fragrances, and goes out with and interacts with lots of women. So, while scent is always subjective, I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the colognes mentioned here, as they are fairly ‘safe’ to wear and enjoy a certain universal appeal.



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.


Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male By Jean Paul Gaultier For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 4.2 Oz.
Great fragrance from this designer. Highly masculine and clean scent with a spicy vanilla aroma. Even the bottle looks cool.Jean Paul Gaultier Review

Original Santal By Creed For Men. Millesime Spray 4.0 Oz

This is a personal choice. When I first tried Santal, I thought it wasn’t all that great and overpriced. Since then, I have come around to it more and more during the winter months. It’s so sweet and smooth and I have gotten many positive responses from women while wearing it.

Creed Aventus Creed 4 OZ Millesime Spray For Men

Another entry from the luxury brand and with its woodsy-citrus blend of notes, Aventus has become a staple of attracting people to it.



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.



Curve by Liz Claiborne for Men – 4.2 Ounce Cologne Spray
Curve has many fans that wear it religiously. Won’t be a signature scent, though, it is a very pleasant one. Very simple and straightforward cologne but one that is utterly fresh and appealing. Review


Acqua Di Gio By Giorgio Armani For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 3.4 Ounces
Wildly popular cologne that may have become overused. However, this still reels in the complements. Review



Dior Homme By Christian Dior For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 3.4 Ounces
Light, fresh, elegant, and classy. Dior Homme is a modern classic. The longevity isn’t as great as desired but this is still a wonderful fragrance. Top Christian Dior Colognes for Men



Paco Rabanne 1 Million By Paco Rabanne For Men Edt Spray, 3.4 Ounce
1 Million definitely has one of the best cologne bottles, but the scent is equally captivating. It starts out with an aroma that is almost grape-like and becomes a sweetly smooth mix of leather and spice. 1 Million Review

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



Bleu de Chanel– Clean blend of citrus notes such as grapefruit and lemon along with a woodsy base. Extremely pleasing scent that gets showered with complements from all walks of life. Definitely one for the ladies.



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

BURBERRY for Men Eau de Toilette, 3.3 fl.oz There were really multiple options from Burberry (Brit and London are great too), this one always seems to get me more complements, even if I personally like Brit slightly more. This one is great in the autumn months. My full Review
