Testosterone levels in men can trigger androstenol production, which is one of the leading causes of body odour. Hence why it's advisable to wear fragrances to eliminate the issue. In this era, there is currently a dazzling array of scents for men.
Fragrances, in general, can be divided into five categories from the most expensive one to the cheapest: Parfum, Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, Eau de Cologne and Eau Fraiche.
Parfum carries the highest concentration of essential oils, whereas Eau Fraiche contains the lowest. The choice of what scent to use is subjective as everyone’s preference is different. To help you get started, we’ve created a list of best fragrance to better suit you.
Acqua Di Gio has been a staple on the best lists of men’s perfumes since its introduction in 1996. It was created by Alberto Morillas and was inspired by the beauty of Pantelleria.
