When it comes to cologne, the first rule is a little goes a long way (someone tell that to our last Uber driver, please?). The second is to think beyond the cheap scent you’ve been spraying out of a can since high school. Odds are high you’re wearing a scent to attract a woman, so why not take the extra step and choose a fragrance she’ll actually respond to? Smells are powerful and evocative. And a good sniff could be the first step in turning her on.
For a cologne that’ll leave a lasting impression (in the best way possible), pick from one of these 10. They’re practically guaranteed to drive women wild. We know, because they told us.
1. The mysterious scent
For the woman you want to keep guessing—the one who’s always on-trend, try YSL L’Homme.
“It’s woody and sexy with a hint of ginger,” says Jocelyn L. “Super luxurious and modern—with a bit of mystery.”
2. The bargain buy
Not in the mood to drop a hundo (or more) on a new fragrance? There are plenty of low-cost options. One favorite?
“Mahogany Woods by Bath & Body Works,” says Ari G. “It may not be a posh brand or anything, but wow, does it smell good.” The decidedly masculine scent has hints of mahogany, bourbon vanilla, and golden amber. It’s a warmer smell, so it’s best suited for cooler weather.
3. The worth-it splurge
Now, if you are willing to spend money on a grown-up scent, we’ve got good news: Not one, not two, but three women we spoke to sung the praises of Creed Aventus.
“It makes me feel like I’m the reigning king of the world,” said one man who swears by it. The brand’s best-selling scent is fruity with just enough spice to make a lasting impression. You’ll smell blackcurrant, pineapple, musk, and vanilla.
4. The cologne no one else is wearing
If you want a scent you can guarantee she’s never smelled before (i.e. it’s what her ex used to wear), but will be dying to whiff again and again, go with a boutique brand.
“Eight years ago, my husband and I discovered Killian,” says Carol G. “Our favorite is Straight to Heaven. It has a spicy, woodsy scent—what I suspect heaven smells like. Our family dentist even tells me my husband is the best-smelling man she’s ever smelled.”
5. The everyday essential
If you want a cologne that’s a great everyday go-to, try “Sauvage by Christian Dior,” suggests Chelsea T.
“It smells like making love in the woods with a man you want to get lost with. It’s clean and confident.”
6. The sophisticated scent
Want to smell like James Bond in a bar full of basic dudes? “Givenchy Intense is so good,” says Brenda D. Black pepper is offset by leather and patchouli.
“It’s strong and sexy, but also very elegant. It smells like we need to go home early.”
7. The low-maintenance option
Not a fan of cologne at all? No worries. Just make sure you grab a body wash with a scent strong enough to last all day.
“My fiancé doesn’t wear cologne but I love the smell of his Irish Spring body wash,” says Mia G. “Who doesn’t love a clean man?”
8. The luxe choice
For the man who docks his yacht in Portofino (or just wants to smell like one), opt for “Creed Millesime Imperial,” says Grace G. It’s not cheap, but that’s the point:
The citrus and musk scent will instantly transport you—and her—to the Mediterranean, no passport required.
9. The smoky, sophisticated scent
If the smell of cigars on a hot Miami night or the fresh leather seats on a sports car turn her on, she’ll love Bvlgari BLV Pour Homme, says Yun Y.
10. The fresh fragrance
Not a big fan of anything too experimental? Stick to something fresh and timeless.
“I’m a sucker for Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male,” says Adrianna L. A clean mix of herbs and a sexy vanilla base make this cologne a memorable one
