Is your man in need of a fragrance update? If he is still wearing the same body spray he wore as a 16-year-old, it’s time to re-evaluate. With Christmas just around the corner, now’s the time to get the man in your life a fresh fragrance for the holiday season. Whether it is your husband, boyfriend, father or brother, Red Scout’s Ultimate Gift Guide has got you covered.
The first step to choosing your man’s signature scent is understanding what it is in the first place. According to Michael Edwards’ Fragrances of the World, men’s fragrances are commonly divided into three categories of Aromatic Fougère, Citrus and Woody Oriental.
Here are some fragrance gift ideas you can use as stocking stuffers for the special man in your life.
If clean, uncomplicated and fresh describes your man, then try a scent from the Aromatic Fougère family. This scent contains blends of lavender and other herbs such as rosemary and basil. It is also teamed with the warmth of wood and oakmoss.
