When men are in the summertime of their lives they don’t want to wear an antiquated cologne that smells like something that their father or grandfather would’ve worn. Instead, they want a scent that’s young and vibrant, sensual, and appealing. They want something that will envelop them in an aura of mystery and excitement that will draw people to them. Unfortunately, when it comes to many designer colognes, it’s not always easy to find a cologne that embodies those characteristics.
However, that’s not to say that it’s impossible to find colognes that are tailor-made to the attitude and style of young men. There are brands out there that are well suited for the young men of today, and we’ve found several of these brands readily available. So without further ado, below are the ten best colognes for young men—colognes that are the epitome of youth, fashion, and style.
Best Colognes For Young Men
10Christian Dior Sauvage For Men
One of the first things that some people may recognize this cologne from Christian Dior is that it was heavily advertised using Johnny Depp. Although those commercials were kind of ambiguous to the fragrances a person could expect from this cologne, we’ve found that it was a very spicy fragrance that is truly one of the best colognes for young men. It has top notes of black pepper and bergamot; heart notes of Sichuan pepper, pink pepper, patchouli, and lavender; and it has base notes that contain the essences of labdanum and cedar. It’s a unique and youthful cologne that comes together quite well and smells very nice.
9Gianni Versace Blue Jeans For Men
First developed in the early 1990s by Jean Pierre Bethouart, this cologne has been worn by young men for decades and continues to entrance each generation that comes up. Due to its lively combination of scents, this cologne has almost a timeless appeal that doesn’t become dated the way other colognes have become dated. It has top notes of bergamot, basil, anise, rosewood, and lime. It has heart notes that contain the fragrances of sage, geranium, roses, carnations, and lavender. As it sinks into its base, the notes of tonka beans, iris and cedar are then allowed to rise to the surface and create an almost perfect youthful essence.
8PI By Givenchy For Men
PI by Givenchy might be an exciting scent for the modern young man, but it isn’t for the faint of heart. This cologne is extremely adventurous and contains a blend of scents that many people wouldn’t believe would go together but somehow manages to do so quite well. Its top notes include Mandarin orange, rosemary, and tarragon. It’s heart notes contain the fragrances of geranium, neroli, and lily-of-the-valley. And at its very base are the notes of tonka beans, vanilla, cedar, and almonds. It’s a giddy scent that has a heavy sillage, moderate longevity, and wafts through the air adventurously enchanting everyone around the wearer.
7Lucky Brand Lucky You For Men
Lucky You by Lucky Brand is a Fougère cologne for men that’s been around for about 2 decades now, but somehow still retains its youthful essence after all of these years. That’s probably because its top notes are very sweet and floral, which seems to intimate a sense of youth and excitement. This cologne also has cardamom heart notes and finishes up with its base notes of teak, rosewood, sandalwood, and bamboo. It is also a cologne with a moderate sillage and longevity and has a pretty good amount of projection. This fragrance may have been around for a while, but it still conveys a young man’s excitement quite well.
61 Million By Paco Rabanne For Men
Fresh, sensual and seductive are just some of the adjectives that can be used to describe 1 Million by Paco Rabanne For Men. This quality cologne was first released during the summer of 2008 and has been a favorite among young men ever since. That’s probably because it has a fragrance and presentation that hints at a luxurious lifestyle. At its top, this cologne has notes of grapefruit, mandarin, and mint. It’s heart notes contain the fragrances of pepper, cinnamon, and rose. And when it finally settles into its base notes, the scents of leather, patchouli, and amber will delight the senses.
5Calvin Klein Euphoria For Men
This fragrance is not only youthful but is also extremely masculine as well, and it does it without coming off as immature or petulant. It blends a combination of Oriental scents with crisp modern scents that allow it to be worn by confident men. Its top notes are a splendid combination of Sudachi and ginger peppers; its heart notes contain a blend of cedar, sage, and basil; and its base notes are an aromatic and exhilarating blend of redwood, suede, amber, and patchouli. All of these notes dance with each other to create a cologne that young men are sure to enjoy.
4Gucci Guilty Pour Homme
This men’s cologne was released in 2011 and is considered to be the brother of Gucci Guilty For Women. It’s a woodsy aromatic cologne that has vibrant top notes and subtle earthy base notes. At its top, this cologne contains the fragrances of lemons and lavender flowers. Its heart notes contain the fragrances of African orange flowers, and this cologne’s base notes are a great combination of patchouli, cedar, and vanilla. All of these notes come together to make a scent that is not only the pure distilled essence of masculinity but also one that screams out the wearer’s love of luxury and privilege.
3Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct
This Oriental fragrance is designed for men who exude a lot of confidence and want everyone around them to recognize their presence. It starts subtly enough with top notes of melon and gin, but it quickly moves into its heart notes of Sichuan peppers, citrus fruits, and violet. Supporting this unique and bold scent structure are base notes of amber, musk, and suede that add a level of depth to this cologne’s composition. It’s a youthful and confident cologne that’s been around since 2016 and should continue to make an impression on anyone who experiences it for many years to come.
2Curve By Liz Claiborne For Men
Although Liz Claiborne has released several varieties of Curve cologne, each with its unique characteristics, this one is probably our favorite. That’s because this scent has a blend of fruity, flowery and earthy notes that are perhaps unmatched by any other type of cologne. Its top notes include the fragrances of lemon, pineapple, and juniper berries. It’s heart notes contain the scents of sage, violet, ginger, and coriander. And it’s base notes are velvety smooth and contain the trace scents of sandalwood, amber, cedar, mahogany, and pepper. It is a youthful and unique cologne suitable for men both young and old.
1Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit de L’Homme
This cologne was almost a universal hit when it jumped on the market way back in 2009, and although it’s been around for over a decade, it’s still a product that captures the essence of youth. With spicy top notes of cardamom that quickly yield to heart notes of cedar, lavender, and bergamot, this cologne is classy enough for formal occasions but energetic enough for casual occasions. It has an above-average sillage, a great projection and it’s a cologne that projects sex appeal. And it’s a nice scent that settles into its base notes of vetiver and caraway quite nicely.
