Every guy probably has a fragrance that they wear every day. That is always a good thing, but it’s important to realize that your cologne is part of how you represent yourself. Certain fragrances come off as strange smelling when you are in certain situations. When you go out at night it’s important that your fragrance matches the situation. Night fragrances generally have richer, heavier notes that invoke warmth and masculinity.
Men’s night frangrances are different because usually contain a more complex mix of scents. Usually you will see these notes in a night cologne:
Night Fragrance Top Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Grapfruit, Orange, Lavender, Cardamom
Night Fragrance Middle Notes: Jasmine, nutmeg, geranium, iris, cedar, oak moss
Night Fragrance Base Notes: musk, vetiver, tonka bean, amber
Keeping that in mind, what are some of the best night fragrances? Have a look:
