Acqua di Parma colony

More than 100 years have passed since 1916 which saw the release of Acqua di Parma Cologne on the market. This masculine perfume, in a short time, has established itself on the market becoming one of the most appreciated fragrances by Hollywood actors. Actors… and actresses.

Launched in 2007, this pearl of Tom Ford perfumes is a fragrance belonging to the woody – floral – musky group. Created by the master perfumer Yves Cassar it includes, among the various scents, ginger, bergamot, basil, Vetiver, Patchouli from Virginia.

Eau Sauvage by Christian Dior

Here, gentlemen, history is made: Eau Sauvage by Christian Dior , a perfume presented on the market for the first time in 1966, represented a real revolution. A fragrance whose journey began in a period of great social change, it was designed not to be sprayed on the neck, but to be used all over the body. Perfume dedicated to young people, it immediately stood out for its extraordinary seductive power. To understand the centrality of this aspect, it is enough to mention the first advertisement for the perfume, which featured a naked man in the center of the bathroom of his home.

Among the best-selling men's perfumes in the world, Eau Sauvage by Dior is the result of the creativity of master perfumer Edmond Rudnitska, whose work, in this case, was made concrete following specific indications from Dior himself. The founder of the maison, in fact, asked the perfumer to create "a scent", specifying that he did not want either a perfume or a cologne.

Vetiver by Guerlain

Also in this case, we are talking about a men's perfume that is not only iconic, but also historical. Vetiver , introduced on the market in 1959, was in fact the first olfactory creation signed by Jean-Paul Guerlain . Among the aspects that characterized it right from the start, there is the focus on a profound dualism, on those dichotomies that we find every day in nature (the one between hot and cold, between harmony and confusion, etc.).

As far as the scents are concerned, we can appreciate olfactory notes of tobacco, without forgetting the spices. Obviously there is vetiver, one of the most loved olfactory suggestions by women in moments of seduction.

Ck One by Calvin Klein

To include this fragrance in the category of iconic men's perfumes is inappropriate. It is in fact the first unisex perfume in history (at least in the history of non-niche perfumery). When its peculiarities are called into question, it is also necessary to mention the bottle, which resembles that of a rum flask. The meaning? The freedom to use all the perfume you want.

Egoïste by Chanel

Égoïste by Chanel is a men's perfume proposed for the first time on the market in 1990. One of the reasons for its fame is the unmistakable commercial with the female protagonists who slam the window shutters.
