16 of the best men's perfumes

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

The modern market offers not only men's and women's perfumes, but also unisex series, that is, suitable for everyone. But so far this approach has not become so popular among Russian consumers, who are accustomed to clear boundaries between gentle and strong perfumes. Each product is different in its composition, and it is designed exclusively for a specific gender. Therefore, you can often immediately determine whether it is a male or female perfume.

The brands not only develop unique fragrances, but also create such designs of bottles, looking at which it is clear which ones are for the strong, which for the weaker half. Men are more laconic, made of massive glass. Packages are made in a strict style without bright colors. But women's bottles delight with their pomp, beauty, unusual shapes.

It is very difficult to navigate in a wide variety of perfumes, especially for representatives of the stronger sex, inexperienced in such matters. The experts of our magazine will be able to help in a difficult choice. The review presents the perfumes that are the most popular and in demand among the male audience, and they are the ones that take their rightful places in the list of the best. The selection took into account the feedback not only of the strong half, but also of women.
