Perfume for Guy - Holiday Gift Idea


Are you still undecided what to give your men for present? What about perfume?

OK, agreed. Giving perfume as a gift to a guy is probably the most unoriginal and uninspired gift idea.

But some men wear the same fragrance for work, for leisure and for the romantic night out. They consider that particular fragrance as their signature.

Why don't you change that and give him YOUR signature perfume instead! Then, giving perfume as gift to a guy isn't a bad idea after all.

But, looking for something different to make them feel good may not be easy. Perfume is a very personal choice. Choosing the ideal scent is a time consuming process. Finding the right perfume for guy may not be easy.

I have done some nosing and sniffing around and below are my favorite classic perfume selections, which I hope you too will like. These are not the latest fragrance, but modern classic fragrance that you can give for Valentine, Birthday, Anniversary, Christmas or any special occasions.

"Just like men, perfume is never perfect right away; you have to let it seduce you"

~ Jean Patou

1. Annick Goutal's Fragrance for Men - Musc Nomade

My top selection is Annick Goutal's Musc Nomade.

This light and breezy composition of woody, resinous and floral notes, compliment its clean musk. This makes Annick Goutal's Musc Nomade an exceptional fragrance to wear alone or to layer with others, for a true intensity.

Supernatural Musk Fragrance

A spellbinding scent and supernatural musk, this fragrance is the fourth scent in their line of Goutal's " Les Orientalist".

It is said that perfumer Isabelle Doyen was inspired by the scents of the harems, where rooms are fragrance by the burning oud wood.

The aphrodisiac effect of this composition was produced with no animal-derived products, which is truly amazing. Perfect for that animal in your man!

Annick Goutal's Musc Nomade came to the market in 2008.

6. Perfume for Men & Women : Hermes, Un Jardin Sur Le Toit

If you are still unsure of the selection of perfume for men, then be safe and get Hermes' Un Jardin Sur Le Toit. This is my last suggestion for Perfume Gift for your Man.

It is designed to be used by both men and women. So you can always use it if your man decided to put it aside.

This is a fruity, floral and vegetal scent inspired by the secret rooftop garden, hidden somewhere in Paris.

Developed by their in-house perfumer, Jean-Claude Ellena, Un Jardin Sur Le Toit contains notes of magnolia, rose, pear, apple and green herbs. It is the fourth of the garden series.

Un Jardin Sur Le Toit came to the market in 2011.

Perfume Gifts for Man

I hope the above list has helped you in some way with your selection of gift ideas.

To quote John Steinbeck:

"Men do change, and change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn, and it comes like the stealthy perfume of wild flowers hidden in the grass"

So go ahead and give your guy a new scent. For Valentine's Day, for Christmas, for his birthday, for the anniversary or for that special occasions.
