Imagine a world where your morning routine includes two or three spritz of perfume in the morning… then, long into your day, you catch a breeze and the delight of your fragrance graces your nose.
Oh, how pleasant it is to know the money you spend and the product you buy isn’t going to waste!
Truthfully, this is something that we at Dossier live for.
Naturally, not all perfumes are made to last all day. It actually comes down to the type of perfume and more importantly the kind of notes you find in the perfume. So, we have done some research and digging to find the best long-lasting perfumes for men.
Read here to learn about the science of long-lasting perfumes.
The following is a list of our 10 favorite long-lasting perfume blends for men. Constantly building our collection for men, you will notice that the first 5 iconic designer blends on our list have inspired Dossier perfumes.
Why? Because — it is our mission to bring you the best quality, long-lasting perfumes made with the same quality juices as the brand name scents you love at unbeatable prices!
1. Creed Aventus
Making an appearance on almost every list of perfumes for men that lasts all day, Creed Aventus is a masculine scent that is anything but weak. It “combines a bevy of inspiring notes, forming a perfume that is suitable for any occasion. Its low water content and reduced quantity of alcohol gives it a much longer-lasting fragrance, allowing it to remain throughout the entire day. Among its most notable scents are bergamot, apple, black currant, musk, oakmoss, and dry birch.” With deeper musky base notes, you will notice the earth of this perfume hours after applying it.
At Dossier, we love how rich Aventus is. Stimulating masculinity, our collection would not be complete without a perfume inspired by this Iconic scent. Introducing our Fresh Woody 5 for just $29.
2. Eros Men by Versace
An invigorating blend that is designed to ignite the fire within its wearer, “Eros Men is a fragrance that’s sensually addictive. Notes of mint leaves, Italian lemon zest, and green apple are what’s in store for you! You will also find trails of tonka beans, amber, geranium flower, and vanilla. While light hints of vetiver and oakmoss finish off this wonderful perfume! Oriental and intriguing, Eros Men provides not just a scent of masculinity, but as well as a subtle drop of passion and sexiness!” We think the warmth of tonka beans and amber come alive once your skin has time to warm the perfume and the cool of the mint has disappeared — we are sure you will notice the subtlety of this scent for the entire day.
Originally a scent that took us with the top notes, the deeper levels of Eros have grown on Dossier. Crafting our Fresh Woody 3 with inspiration from Versace. So good, we will be surprised if you can tell the difference.
3. Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani
“Fragrant, captivating, and elegant, this perfume is among Giorgio Armani’s most popular creations. It has a scent that’s crisp, lively, aquatic, and woody. Its notes clearly give us that burst of freshness from the Mediterranean Sea! Notes of fresh calabrian bergamot, neroli, and citrusy green tangerine are among the most standout trails from this fragrance. And as time passes, these scents softly fade into a light mix of jasmine, rock rose, rosemary, persimmon, and Indonesian patchouli!” Complex and captivating, Acqua Di Gio is a scent to outlast time and time again. Put it on before the gym and see how the scent sticks around even when you sweat.
For Armani how you craft incredible perfumes, inspired by this iconic scent we at Dossier have made our Fresh 1 – we dare you to try and it tell the difference.
4. Christian Dior Sauvage
Boasting a name meaning “savage” in french, this perfume is exactly that — anything but tame or calm — wild and ferocious, this scent lasts and lasts. “Dior Sauvage has been designed to offer fresh top notes of bergamot as the dominant force; but as this distinctive scent begins to dry down on the skin, Dior promise a subtle masculine, woody note left in its wake. Like its poster boy Johnny Depp, Sauvage is an intriguing mix of rugged manliness (vetiver, pepper, patchouli) and borderline feminine refinement (lavender, geranium) that’s hard to pin down, but there’s no end of wearers complimenting its wondrous fusion of scents.” We tend to smell the patchouli and lavender hints the longest, but this fusion scent offers linger notes that differ from person to person.
One of our all time favorite perfumes, Dior inspired us to make our Fresh Woody 2. Now available for just $29, you can enjoy the same top quality juices as the iconic blend without the expense.
5. Chanel Bleu De Chanel
A refreshing perfume, Bleu De Chanel is a surprising blend that lightly lingers all day. “Much like the iconic clothes Coco Chanel began designing almost a century ago, Chanel men’s fragrances are sophisticated and timeless. What’s unique about this fragrance is that it combines aromatic-woody scents with the invigorating freshness of citrus. That makes it suitable for wearing in winter or summer months.” Like the warmth of the sun on your skin, you will enjoy how this perfume makes you smile long after applying it.
Reminding us of days spent charging new territory, Chanel has captured the master perfumers at Dossier and inspired us to make Fresh Woody 1 for just $29.
A typical characteristic of a perfume that will last longer is — heavier base notes. The next 5 designer perfumes we picked because they offer just that — deep fragrance that is musky, smokey, earthy, and warm. Notice the similar base notes in all 5!
** Be sure to watch Dossier’s collection grow, as we expand, you will most likely see some of these iconic scents!
6. BVLGARI Man In Black
Similar to how your leather belt, bag or shoes smell even years after new as well as how spices when cooking seem to linger — Man In Black has the same quality that makes you want to take a deep, deep whiff. “It’s combination of leather tones with natural spices and extracts make it a great perfume for a more formal dress style. The perfume combines subtle notes of amber, wood, rum, iris, spice, and tonka bean to portray a masculine and imposing scent. It’s woody notes also make it quite seductive, and highly appreciated by women.”
7. Tom Ford Tobacco Vanilla
“Oriental and spicy, this cologne will last all day. Tobacco blossom, tonka bean, cacao and vanilla create a combination that smells sensual without being over the top. Definitely masculine and attention-grabbing — good for evening or winter wear.” We think of this perfume like the staying power of a freshly smoked cigar. It lingers with sophistication and intensity — slightly sweet yet intriguing like “the most interesting man in the world”.
8. Homme Intense By Dior
A mixture of masculine and feminine, this perfume boasts fragrances of musk and earth that stay after hours of wear. “Homme Intense has distinct notes that are sophisticated, woody, masculine, and sweet! And it has a base note of cedar and vetiver, while traces of iris, musk mallow, and pear make up the middle notes. As for its top notes, you can expect a splash of light powdery lavender. Nothing too overwhelming, Dior Homme Intense is also perfect for everyday wear.” You will be surprised at how addictive it is.
9. Montale Black Musk
Kind of like the pleasure of drinking a perfectly made coffee — the mucky, deep aroma perfume for men is anything but ordinary. “This elegant cologne blends black pepper, nutmeg, teakwood, leather, sandalwood, patchouli, and ambergris, to create a long-lasting and extravagant aroma. If you have a special occasion or formal event and don’t want to deal with touching up your cologne, try this.”
10. Angel Men Pure Malt By Mugler
Take a trip to Scotland everytime you spray Pure Malt. “A scent that honors the traditional Scottish whiskey. It’s bold, it’s sexy, and it’s masculine! And yes, you guessed it! You should expect notes of refined fragrant malt, as well as smoky, luxurious, and sensual wood scents! It also has this very boozy impression for the top notes, and has hearts of citrus and sweet scents.” Like nothing you have ever smelt, it lingers and stays on your skin like the taste of scotch stays on your lips. Oh how tantalizing.
