With the Christmas season approaching, you might be wondering what to give your boyfriend or your dad as a present.
For men, dressing well and layering correctly is only half of the battle because the other half is about smelling nice.
So if you're a lady who wants to know how to choose the right perfume to give to the man in your life this Christmas, you first need to know how much you're willing to spend.
Like any other product, perfume, the better the quality, the higher the price. You can find some satisfying options for less than you might even think.
Here are three tips on choosing the right perfume for them.
Although that is the core pursuit, there are still some other things to consider. Every product will not smell the same on ever, man. Every guy is built differently. You need to find the right scent for the real personality.
Learn about the fragrance families.
For you to find the right men's perfume, you'll first need to learn about the fragrance families to determine the scents that most appeal to you or your man. Traditionally, scents are classified as being either amber, woody, or floral. Every scent is designed to spark different emotions.
Use their personality as a guide.
The perfume that you'll choose is going to represent your man as a person, so it's essential to select a fragrance that describes their personality. For instance, a man that is determined in nature but has a mysterious allure should go for musky amber scents. While for those with charisma tend to go for woody concoctions. Sporty men will seek out aquatic, green, and citrus scents while romantics at heart will choose a floral fragrance.
Get a second opinion.
It's always a good idea to get a second opinion. Ask some of your women friends what they think about the perfume you're going to get your man. Since one of the main objectives of wearing perfume attracts the opposite, imagine if you would like this particular scent on him.
Now that's all settled, here are our top 5 biggest fragrances for Christmas, perfect for gifts.
