Men's fragrances are the special world of aromas in which still there is set of stereotypes and prejudices. In spite of the fact that the smell of habitual cologne for many becomes one for the rest of life, today there is opportunity to pick up to each man the unique aroma. The range of men's fragrances does not concede to quantity and quality of perfume for women presently.
So, let's consider in more detail the interesting facts about modern men's fragrances in more detail.
Not for commerce
The first fact is that niche perfumery still does not recognize men's fragrances. This paradox did not manage to be broken still. And though at commercial perfumery seldom there is indication of gender accessory of product, not seldom the bottle acts as the index of it. Commercial perfumery gradually refuses the direct instruction on sex, and the gender can be distinguished only on color scale or form of bottle. Many aromas are universal, both for men, and for women.
Experts in this aspect see avoiding old dogmas and direct link with freedom of the modern world where there are no restrictions and conventions.
There is no perfume for men
The second interesting aspect is that the men's fragrance does not exist at all. This impudent statement exit from the fact that at the time, only some hundred years ago, gender division in perfumery did not exist in principle. For example, at the end of the 19th century the lady and gentlemen used the same perfume. Usual cologne which was only hygienic means during this period and was not seldom used inside can be striking example of this fact.
It is important to notice that producers of spirits constantly focus attention that there are no exclusively male or exclusively female aromas. The world celebrity and the founder of the known brand Serge Lutens always directly about it claims: When you come to restaurant, do not ask for yourself the men's or female menu.
Other legends of the world of perfumery support it and call gender division of aromas no more than evil intrigues of marketing specialists. Perfumers create unique aromas, without attaching significance to whom it will belong, is exact the same as the culinary specialist does not reflect on it, creating the delicacy.
Women like men's fragrances
Leaving from this, we will pass to the third fact – perfume for men is to the taste to women. As a rule, the fuzherny compositions combining notes of lavender, bergamot, oak moss and coumarin are considered as primordially men's fragrances. Such chord as it is called among professional perfumers, has been created at the end of the 19th century. And since the same time it has been noticed that it has success not only with strong, but also with the fair sex. And the well-known aroma of Jicky Guerlain which was assumed to use by men too ladies just adored.
Certainly, spirits can be rather men's, especially if to remember heritage of the 80th years of the last century with his love for aggressive aromas filled with wormwood, tobacco and leather notes, but not seldom even such brutal aromas beautifully sound also for women.
Perfume for men can be sweet
Let's pass to the following interesting aspect, namely that even in gentlemen's aromas sweet notes not seldom meet.
Here it is worth placing emphasis that perfumers do not divide the masterpieces, and especially ingredients by the principle it for girls, it for boys again. Because of it men's fragrances not seldom can sound sweet chords. So, for example, in popular composition from Valentino Uomo it is possible to meet chocolate and nut cream together with coffee beans which give it special shade and firmness. Whereas Guerlain L’Homme Ideal is considered not just aroma of sweets, and the present ode to confectionery art. The only thing that serves as the index of perfume for men - it is strict bottle, but if to pour contents in pink bottle, gentle in form, it will become that hour favourite aromas of girls.
The man carries flower aroma
Finally it would be desirable to break the myth that men do not carry flower aromas. This statement is strong stereotype which has got to us from ancestors. But in fact it is not less man, than girls prefer pleasant flower aromas. For example, pink water throughout centuries was considered as universal perfumery remedy. Besides in the middle of the 20th century the aroma of rose was considered as favourite men's fragrance until marketing specialists have made it femininity symbol.
