Sniph reveals: The perfumes we love most in 2017 - man

Synthetic and fruity among men’s favorites

Taking a deeper look into the bottles men are praising, we can conclude that men are weak for anything exotic, fruity and ‘just showered’. In parallel with the 2010 launch of AXE (fast deluxe), men are feeling in control, emanating a sense of care and getting revved up on smelling almost edible. At the same time, loud and synthetic scents are gaining ground.  The thesis that men use scent more as a means of expression than as a basic beauty product is clearly supported by the dominance of unnatural notes (ambroxan, aldehydes, Iso E Super, etc.) found among the perfumes making the top list. The synthetic reproduction of cedar and sandalwood, for example, is not just a stroke of genius from an environmental standpoint—they also flirt well with the odor receptors of men. 

Men’s top 3 list:

”Exotic fruits, contradictory blue and synthetic wood”

1. Huitième Art – Aqaysos (Eau de Parfum)

Huitième Art - Aqaysos (Eau de Parfum)
The 2017 grand launch from French perfume genie Pierre Guillaume’s scent collection— ‘Huitième Art’—is an incomparable splash of fruity chords, woody notes and musty spices. To imagine yourself wanting to shower in Aqaysos minutes after using it for the first time is not unthinkable. Will this be the fragrance that changes your life?

2. Histoires de Parfums – This is Not a Blue Bottle 1/.1 (Eau de Parfum)

Histoires de Parfums This is Not a Blue Bottle 1/.1 (Eau de Parfum)

The French perfume house Histoires de Parfums released its beautiful collection, This is Not a Blue Bottle, at the end of 2015. Each contradictory blue bottle carries refreshing tones of honey with an oriental finish.  The first version consists largely of spicy, synthetic notes (called ‘aldehydes’ in perfume-speak) which account for the fresh but metallic scent. Eternal freedom in a bottle.
