How do you choose a perfume that suits your desires or personality when in men’s perfumery the offer has never been so important? Sixty-year-old men are not mistaken and sometimes they prefer to remember the beauty of the great colognes for older man than to limit themselves only to novelties. Thus, Vetiver, Habit Rouge or even Eau Sauvage, although born many years ago, remain in the hearts of those who appreciated its incredible composition.
However, men with assertive masculinity of 60 years do not hesitate to resort to more original perfume compositions, such as with A * Men, Terre d’Hermès or Fahrenheit.
Men’s perfumes have marked the lives of 70-year-old men, who relive them with great pleasure when they want to rediscover the chords that made up their most beautiful memories. However, the elegant and even original elegance of these historical cult perfumes is not an obstacle to the discovery of new perfumes that these 70-year-old men will be able to fully enjoy on the day of their fully assumed masculinity.
From a certain age, the choice of perfume seems to be final. Men don’t want to change it’s a very similar scent. However, fresh awakenings, tonic toilet water or the eternal water of Cologne is still very popular. Then we opt for Eau Sauvage from Dior, a real perfume, very fresh, of great elegance. This is also the case of Eau de Rochas pour Homme, a very distinguished timeless.
The 70-year-old man likes to return to his most beautiful memories without turning his back on the discovery of new perfumes. Of course, we have Pour Un Homme de Caron, which is one of the perfumes we can’t forget. Created in the 1930s, at a time when men’s perfumes were still very rare, it combines freshness with refinement. It is a true gentleman’s perfume, even if he was one of the first to put flowers in a masculine perfume. More recently, Gentiv Only by Givenchy is also very elegant, contrasting and bright. Azzaro pour Homme d’Azzaro is said to have been worn by one of three men in the world … It is the perfume of charming and manly men.
The 70-year-old continues to love his great classics. This does not prevent him from appreciating the news.
Octogenarians are faithful to their past with Eau de Cologne 4711, Eau de Toilette de Tabac Original or Pour Homme Lion de Lalique which embodies supreme elegance. However, they did not refuse to try Monsieur de Guerlain’s Le Mouchoir or Burberry’s now famous Burberry For Men which evokes all the charm of the English landscape. The 80-year-old man is attracted to the great perfumes that marked his life.
Suggestions – old men’s cologne:
Vétiver de Guerlain
Vetiver is and was considered one of the greatest fragrances of the time as its woody ode is true to nature. Jean-Paul Guerlain is about to succeed Jacques Guerlain, yet he has yet to prove his talents in this uncompromising family dynasty. To do this, he will have the idea to work on the composition of Eau de Vétiver in order to make it a more modern, more fiery but also very natural masculine fragrance. And it is at this very point, moreover, that his audience will acclaim his splendid work of olfactory painting of the vetiver.
Angel Men by Thierry Mugler
With Angel and his very innovative gourmet scents, Thierry Mugler and his favorite perfumer Olivier Cresp have both established themselves in the very new register of perfumery for them. Four years later, Thierry Mugler will offer men a taste of fragrant delicacies with a long-awaited A * Men signed by Jacques Huclier this time. THIERRY MUGLER Angel A Men eau de toilette alone will captivate you at first sight with its appearance and the color of the “liquid” azure sea. All this is packed in a completely ordinary box, which is all black except for the front part, which is light blue and with the dominant name Angel and (star) Men. At the bottom is the name THIERRY MUGLER and all the necessary information about the eau de toilette. The bottle itself will fascinate you with its design and content. It is made of medium-thick glass with a large five-pointed star on the front, which dominates the entire bottle. Its shape is a “compressed” oval, which is almost “flat”. The back is straight and the front protrudes a little. At the very top is a plastic lid, which is in a metal finish and hides the dispenser. As for the aroma itself, it is excellent, freshly fruity with a hint of citrus. It looks romantically energetic. Feel it for quite a long time. It is suitable for young men who like to play sports after work.
Blending very futuristic notes with rather classic notes, A * Men is a fragrance that will suit the taste of assertive older men who love perfume originality very well.
XS de Paco Rabanne
In her first men’s fragrance, For Men, the house of Paco Rabanne had made it clear to these gentlemen that it could amaze them with innovative and even futuristic accords. The beautiful XS for Men released in 1993 will not deny this truth because it will be more explosive and original than ever.
XS will be the very beginning of Paco Rabanne’s beautiful story in a provocative but above all clearly identifiable perfumery. In addition to sulphurous communication and advertising, packaging as desired, XS is above all a great masculine fragrance that combines the beauty of very masculine notes in depth with ultra-dynamic top notes and soft but spicy heart flowers.
So XS would be the futuristic cocktail of this modern 90s man who combines strength and tenderness with flawless masculinity.
Obviously, 70-year-old men still passionately love the great classics of modern men’s perfumery, such as Pour Monsieur de Chanel, Vétiver de Guerlain or Pour un Homme de Caron. However, they are very attached to the perfumes that marked their adult life like the cult and so manly Azzaro for Men or the sporty and stylish Lacoste Original, both so representative of the 80’s in men’s perfumery.
A love of traditional fragrances that in no way prevents these 70-year-old men with serene virility from fully taking on the audacity of fragrant novelties as with the so elegant Gentleman Only, one of the latest bottles born from the house of Givenchy.
Pour Homme de Paco Rabanne
Calandre, a beautiful feminine juice, was the very first perfume of the house of Paco Rabanne, but Pour Homme was the second and in 1973 marked the original and very masculine style of the Paco Rabanne perfumery.
Pour Homme was completely designed in the image of the daring and original collections of Paco Rabanne, and exudes an aromatic charm still unused in the 70s. Today Paco Rabanne Pour Homme has become a staple of men’s perfumery, alongside sure of Invictus or One Million.
HERMES Terre D’Herm Eau Intense Vetiver Eau De Parfum
Launched in 2018, the new Terre is created by perfumer Christine Nagel around vetiver notes. It is a fresh interpretation of the classic Terre variant. In the new composition, the impetuous vetiver reveals another Terre, whose initial mineral and woody bases become woody and vegetal. The black pepper turned into Sichuan pepper with a bright shade of green and citrus shades, which invigorates the formula for a better combination of ingredients. Orange bergamot offers a surprisingly radical and bold quality. Terre Vetyver is absolutely amazing. It is rich and warm, brown and bright, an olfactory illusion that evokes the image of the vast sky during an endless sunset. Hermes Terre D’Hermes Eau Intense Vetiver is perfume water designed for modern and independent men. The composition opens with an intoxicating Vetiver aroma, followed by the aromatic heart in which calmer notes of Chinese pepper dominate and pulsate. The composition ends with a seductive aroma formed by fresh bergamot accords, which persists for a long time and perfectly complements the unique charm of its wearer. With Hermes Terre D’Hermes Eau Intense Vetiver you will conquer everyone around you.
MAISON FRANCIS KURKDJIAN BACCARAT ROUGE 540 by Maison Francis
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 is an example that completes the imprint of the house through a precious and elegant flanker, both contemporary and empathetic. The famous perfumer Francis Kurkdjian is known all over the world for his fine sense in producing true masterpieces that caress the senses and envelop men’s bodies in elegance and refinement.
The perfume Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 opens timidly, but still strong and intense with the floral scent of jasmine and saffron. Also called “red gold”, saffron is the one that brings an extra elegance and luxury to the whole aroma with a fresh, intense earthy scent, embalmed in the tenderness of sweet and sensual jasmine flowers. These two top notes are able to represent the strong and gentle woman or the charming and charismatic man. The appearance of the saffron is the one that creates the story of the whole perfume and detaches it from reality, leading the woman in Greek mythology through the bright yellow which is an incarnation of the Goddess of Dawn who fights at night, and then in the Indian through the bright red which is an incarnation of the Goddess. Saffron in combination with jasmine represents two notes that complement each other creating a whole, being a final accent for an evening outfit with royal details.
Two noble aromas are present in the middle notes of the perfume, namely amber wood and gray amber. The woody, slightly dry and sweet smell of amber wood merges into a sensual play with the intensity, refined, slightly burnt and sweet smell of gray amber. The amber wood is the one that gives the elixir a mysterious note with a slight musky touch towards the end of the bite, just like the gray, amber which at the end has an ash smell that covers the picture created in mystery, in enigmatic.
This noble heart is the one that gives the whole perfume that luxury that does not opulate, but seduces with intensity. These two ingredients have versatility, they are sweet, strong, woody, dry being the quintessence of the whole aroma.
Fir resin and cedar wood are the concluding notes of the perfume that give persistence to the entire elixir. Sweet, fresh, wild fir resin together and the dry, sweet, woody essence given by the cedar wood envelops the whole perfume in freshness and elegance, awakening the senses from the numbness left of the top and middle notes.
Acqua Di Parma Acqua Di Parma Colonia Eau De Cologne
The mixture is opened with a combination of citrus, made of oranges and lemons, with special emphasis on lemon juice. The notes focus more on the skin than on the fruit itself. While the lemonade makes its presence felt, it spreads extremely natural smells and aromas of the most diverse. The citrus avalanche is becoming more and more dehydrated as it approaches the closing phase. A lavender aroma, combined with a shade of dried rosemary is presented in a very dusty manner; a natural scent, enveloped in accents of dried herbs. The citrus aroma begins to fade, but does not disappear completely. The bright jasmine and the rose introduce a soft, floral feeling, with a special texture and appearance. The specimen manages to impress with the lush way of embracing the wearer’s body, without displaying excessive opulence. It is the kind of perfume that manages to approach in a fresh way.
The creation has a natural, invigorating look, the atmosphere created especially by the presence of lemon accords, which mixes with the texture of the musk and the sophisticated spirit of the aromas of lavender, rose and patchouli.
From the first glance, the specimen stands out for its simplicity and elegance. The creation accustoms its audience with a special royalty, an aristocratic atmosphere, which expects elegance and discretion. The specimen is wrapped in arrangements of Sicilian citrus, lavender, rosemary and Bulgarian rose. The sandalwood makes its presence felt, and the vetiver is projected in depth.
It develops as a ritual, bathed in the sense of summer, out of the corridors of simple perfumes, with impressive notes of Sicilian citrus and aromas of bergamot, lemon and Neroli. Lavender and rosemary are embraced with the scent of the Bulgarian rose, accentuated with light notes of jasmine and some floral aspects.
The onset is strong and reinforced by sharp citrus shades, but also by green notes, made on a plant base. Rosemary and sage are mixed in the rough and too masculine composition, which is the heart of this specimen.
The stabilization is accentuated by the presence of woody shades, amber and weak hints of oak, which borrow the substance and take a step forward in the lively atmosphere. Longevity is average, but suitable for a colony.
Each citrus accent brings something different in front of people, created in a wonderful mixture of transparent bergamot, combined with ginger. It reminds of the presence of white flowers and shares a bright, invigorating quality, easy to wear, especially during the hot summer days.
In the past, the perfume was worn by elegant men, by international movie stars, by those who opted for luxury. Hand made glass is special and shares a rich secret, deep in an atmosphere of Sicilian citrus (bergamot, lemon, bitter orange and sweet atmosphere); a brilliant creation that takes place in a heart of Bulgarian lavender and rose, on warm and woody base notes, a formula that has not changed over time.
Issey Miyake L’eau d’Issey Pour Homme Eau de Toilette Fraiche
Launched by the design house of Issey Miyake. This oriental woody fragrance has a blend of citrus, spice, musk, amber, and woods.
L’Eau d’Issey pour Homme Intense is a woody men’s fragrance launched in 2007. The creator of this fragrance is Jacques Cavallier. The predominantly woody composition of the perfume is light with aromas of mandarin, yuzu, sweet orange and bergamot. Nutmeg, lotus, cinnamon, saffron and cardamom appear in the middle of the composition, and the tones of amber, papyrus, benzoic resin, incense and ambergris form the base of the slightly spicy perfume.
Very fresh opening, mainly citron with some unknown to me notes, based on reviews it can be Youzu. However, after a while, it tones down it is like it behind some wet curtain, almost like someone is showering, and only some notes are coming to you.
Projection and silage are quite limited to me. It could be a very nice summer scent but lacks longer freshness, and perhaps warm spring would be perfect for it.
Top notes illustrate a mixture of lemon and yuzu that installs decisively in opening the fragrance, offering a strong bergamot veil. A soft hint of lotus flower manages to introduce the next aromatic impression from the evolution of the perfume. Two years after the release of the female version, Issey Miyake impressed once again by highlighting two antagonistic poles. A balance between yin and yang depicts the extreme polarities of the world. If you are however only trying to make an impression, the L’Eau D’Issey Pour Homme is a good bet.
Dior Sauvage for Men Eau De Toilette
Christian Dior Sauvage perfume is avid for marketing, simultaneously constituting a divine essence for the male public. Announced by its predecessor, Eau Sauvage, the perfume in question benefits from a distinct presence and a lot of originality, exactly the aspects that a man is looking for in a perfume.
Moreover, if you are looking for a perfume that will not leave you during the day, then you should not go further, because Dior Sauvage is the answer. On the other hand, the essence draws its objectives very clearly, without allowing the wearers to dream of interesting stories or complex fairy tales. No, Sauvage is a simple, fresh, bright and radiant fragrance that leaves a pearly imprint on men who know themselves well enough. An avant-garde flavor that behaves like a corporation.
The top notes of the Christian Dior Sauvage perfume start with a strong spicy and electric scent offered by the dizzying combination of black peppercorns, freshly ground and sprinkled over a freshly squeezed green and ripe bergamot. This mix is reminiscent of a hot summer day at the beach, cleaned with a strong and a refreshing breeze. Bergamot brings a versatile play, while its scent of sweet lime and mint offers a fresh vibration, specific to the charming man. Peppercorns provide warmth and bring the mysterious and imposing man to the forefront.
The middle notes keep that delicacy spiced with a combination of Sichuan pepper and pink pepper. These two strong essences are combined with the resinous and dry smell of vetiver over which patchouli leaves are placed, so as to remind of the top notes. But the masculine, charming game continues with a rich lavender scent that calms the senses and offers a touch of wildness. Lavender is seasoned with fresh geranium petals reminiscent of wild apples. After a few moments, a citrus, spicy and fresh scent appears and eclipses the notes with a special flavor, this olfactory play is given by the resin of the element tree. As you can see, the middle notes keep the picture from the beginning, over which he adds aphrodisiac and soothing flowers as a sign of the man’s aplomb, spiky and charismatic.
The notes felt at the end bring to the fore a predominant wooden base as a symbol of a noble, elegant man. Cedar is the one that makes the opening with its slightly sweet smell, being easily soaked in the essence of ambroxan which offers a strong animal smell. For more refinement and style, labdanum with its floral scent makes its appearance.
It is a classic, elegant, sophisticated and a memorable perfume for him, thus becoming extremely tempting. Once installed on the skin, this perfume is subtle but distinct and could certainly serve as a signature perfume.
Chanel Platinum Egoiste
This perfume is created by Jacques Polge, a perfumer known for his skill in creating impressive aromas from all points of view. The composition of this perfume is the one that offers a classic note of cereals, rosemary and Neroli. This combination is a unique one that will envelop any man with a unique scent in which we find the traditional lavender, jasmine and sage, mixed with green notes of galbanum. Regarding the aroma, we can also say that it is very warm, woody with tree, Vetiver or cedar moss inserts. At the same time, in the composition of this perfume we can also mention labdanum.
To present the scent shades of the perfume on the notes, we can say that the top ones are represented by rosemary, lavender, Neroli and petit grain. Then, the middle notes for Chanel Egoiste Platinum are galbanum, sage, jasmine and geranium, so that the base notes are amber, sandalwood, lichen, Vetiver and cedar. Anyone can consider using this perfume if they want to enjoy a unique, impressive scent that can offer multiple benefits in everyday life, regardless of the activities they carry out. We say this because people who will use Chanel Egoiste Platinum, will certainly be impressed by the persistence of the product and especially by the fact that it can always offer a unique smell, after which many people will turn their eyes.
Chanel Platinum Egoiste perfume is wrapped in lavender, sage, rosemary, geranium, cedar and Vetiver accords. It opens with an avalanche of citrus fruits, which comes in a sweet-sour form, which is warmed by the presence of rosemary and lavender accords. This is an easily recognizable, clean scent. As it dries on the skin, it becomes soft and sweet at the same time.
Christian Dior Dior Men Intense Eau de Parfum
The nose behind this perfume is the perfumer Francois Demachy Chirstian Dior Homme Intense is a benchmark in the list of perfumes for men, a fact proven by the popularity of this perfume that still attracts buyers of luxury perfumes and deserves its place among the best Dior creations.
The Christian Dior Homme Intense perfume has as top notes lavender. The experience of wearing this perfume water opens with lavender, an intensely colored flower with a specific scent, which if worn by a man accentuates its seductive power. Towards the center, the iris flower appears, thus discovering a purple floral bouquet, which will attract the fairer sex. Along with the iris, amber and pear appear. The juicy fruit has the ability to make the smell permeate the skin for a long time, and towards the end, the notes of Vetiver and cedar appear. The woody notes are specific to men’s perfumes, and Christian Dior knows very well that men prefer raw, natural and strong notes, as well as their personality. Like its predecessor, the Christian Dior Homme perfume, the Christian Dior Homme Intense perfume keeps the classic bottle, with straight lines, robust, but also elegant.
The transparency of the glass together with the amber-colored elixir catches the eye and demonstrates the intensity of the aromas in the composition. This time, the lid is dark. This subtle cough denotes the persistence of the notes, and the perfume acquires a much more sophisticated look.
Fruit, almost tropical and probably helped to go in this direction by the pineapple note. The opening smells like a feminine perfume, with a hidden masculinity that comes out smelling of fresh fruit and tar. Creed Aventus does a good job of directing this element in such a way as to improve the fragrance, instead of breaking it down. During the middle stage, I feel a floral with a sharp earthy smell, which persists in the scent until dry, when it fades with a little sweet vanilla.
The model of the container is similar to other Creed bottles. Niche houses tend to maintain a fairly uniform design. Creed doesn’t make a difference either. The glass has a good weight, being easy to use and hold. It is slightly sharp, with clear glass elements, combined with black and metal treatments. Creed perfumes are, in general, quite expensive perfumes, and Creed Aventus does not go out of this scheme but it is well worth it.
The Invictus star opens with a suite of fresh grapefruit chords, accompanied by specific aquatic notes. The contrast between the refreshing and the wood accents gives the perfume an interesting look, this aspect being quite important for a person who wants to identify a unique mix on the market. Without being a delusional mixture, Invictus manages to smell excellent, harmonious, promising a higher level of persistence and intensity. The heart of the composition surprises with the aroma of bay leaves, embraced by the strong jasmine Hedione. The base of the perfume links an implacable woody silence, sprinkled with vibrant pulses of guaiac wood, patchouli, oak and amber muscles. Compared to other men’s perfumes, Invictus remains a clear proof of refinement and elegance, because it does not present a dizzying sweetness that will gradually become an olfactory nuisance for those around, but even alternates the senses between ups and downs. The twilight of the perfume is gentle, clean, but you do not have to worry about its persistence for a long time. The design of the bottle is another attractive addition, because it brings to the fore the configuration of a Latin trophy. Invictus is the aroma of a champion, being inspired by the effervescence of marine notes, which are wonderfully intertwined in a perfume for sports people, driven by dynamism and performance. This aquatic and woody perfume embodies the enthusiasm of the sport with dream elements that celebrate power and victory. Its modern allure is equally subordinated to the composition, which does not cease to amaze the male protagonists, surrounded by the refreshing smell – fruity, and then to be introduced into a seductive oriental fantasy. A sophisticated, powerful packaging, catapulted into contemporary masculinity.
Paco Rabanne Invictus
Francisco Rabanedo Cuervo, or Paco Rabanne as we all know him, is an 85-year-old Spanish fashion designer. He started his career making jewelry for brands such as Givenchy, Dior or Balenciaga. He made his own fashion house in 1966 and used materials such as metal, paper or plastic for his creations. His first perfume was called Calandre, a fragrance for fresh women that quickly attracted the sympathy of the ladies of that period.
Even today, Paco Rabanne has a major influence in the fashion world and continues with extravagant, nonconformist clothing. If so far we have talked about sexy, sweet and serious perfumes, it’s time to talk about a fresh perfume. It’s about Paco Rabanne Invictus, one of my favorite fresh perfumes. It can be worn by children, teenagers and men who want to emphasize their athletic character, respectively the body of an athlete. It was launched in 2013 and the name “Invictus” represents the energetic, competitive, dynamic and sporty man; in a word, he represents the invincible man.
Although Paco Rabanne’s most famous and popular perfume is One Million, Invictus is also hugely successful worldwide. Its smell is strong, fresh that persists for a long time in all conditions. It can also be used as a daily perfume if you spray it in the right amount. Although it is a fresh perfume, it also inspires a certain tenderness in me. I recommend using it in situations when you want to feel fresh, when you go on a date with other men, at work or in any other usual, ordinary situation. If you want to participate in more sophisticated parties or events, I think Invictus is not suitable and better use one of the perfumes presented above. Invictus notes are: marine notes, grapefruit, jasmine, bay leaves, mint, oak and guaiac moss.
The shape of the bottle is an interesting and suggestive one, strikingly resembling a trophy. This accentuates the fact that you are going to wear a strong, sporty and dynamic perfume, specially created for invincible men.
Versace The Dreamer
Versace launched The Dreamer perfume in 1996. The juniper and lily opening helps the essence to develop its temperament, giving way to tobacco notes. For a masculine essence, the most interesting stage is the one that brings the lily to the center of attention, the role of this flower being to draw the edges of the perfume.
Although the iris also appears in the official description, it is not exactly distinctive in the whole composition. As the perfume relaxes on the skin, the smell of tobacco takes over the landscape, but not in an avid, individualistic manner. No, it blends with amber flavor and tarragon note. The final effect of this combination is fruity, but buttery. As is the rich juice of a coconut.
Truly unique, The Dreamer is a pleasure in the colder months of the year. Probably the most appreciated perfume in the men’s division of the Versace brand. We can think of Dreamer essence as a tender sweater, or as our favorite blanket for cold winter evenings. Warm and comforting, the perfume urges you to dream. The “dreamer” begins with herbal notes, walking for a long time under a chemical mist, slightly bitter. Hence the immediate comparison with a glass of tonic gin. Shortly afterwards, the spices from the Mediterranean landscape are added to the green mixture, as well as a tobacco veil.
The floral notes are obvious, but not difficult to wear by a man who knows how to appreciate the aromas of the niche, especially when the petals of lilies and iris are accompanied by a considerable amount of powdered sugar, tobacco rolls and gasoline.
Given this surprising mix of ingredients, it’s no wonder that people classify the Versace Dreamer perfume as both eccentric and versatile.
