Young Men’s Cologne
This celebrity cologne may seem unsophisticated to some men. But this may be because the appeal of Usher is rather not universal, but seemingly for the younger generation of men only. Those who haven’t been exposed much to men’s colognes or are yet to experiment which one to sport among the mature, manly fragrances would find this as a good starter cologne. With an overarching vibe of freshness, it blends the combination of fruity and spicy—the latter being characteristic of men’s colognes. So for teens who would like to take their fragrance choice to the next level, they could consider Usher with it being on the “borderline” of the cologne for young men’s and men’s.
The fruity opening of this cologne is not strong or heavy, but with a “just-right” rating—one’s olfactics can be immediately at ease and pleased with it. The top notes are then of lemon verbena, melon, and pineapple. The sweet scent layers into spicy and musky, courtesy of the middle and base notes. These notes also give Usher that woody, masculine vibe.
The middle notes account for the subtle spicy and woody scent with blue lavender, vetiver, violet leaf, and white pepper. The woody scent further becomes prominent through the base notes of the woody and musky amber, musk, sandalwood, and suede.
The dry down is not too distinctive, with no remarkable transition among the layers of notes. This may be the reason why this Usher cologne for men is considered as very simple, though unsophisticated may be a good label to consider.

This Usher cologne for men might require a little more spraying in the course of the day though, as the longevity is at 6 hours max on the average.
