These are the best men’s fragrances for Valentines Day this year.

Top Fragrance For Men On Valentine’s Day

Whether you’re a guy reading this, or a girl looking for  a Valentine’s Day fragrance for him, these are the best scents you can find.

  • Most Seductive Men’s Valentines Day Fragrance: Gucci Oud Intense
  • Best Men’s Valentines Day Fragrance For A Day Date: Bvlgari Man Rain Essence
  • Best Men’s Valentines Day Fragrance For Older Guys: Dior Sauvage Elixir
  • Best Men’s Valentines Day Fragrance For Younger Guys: Dior Sauvage
  • Best All Rounder Fragrance For Men On Valentines Day: Bleu De Chanel EDT

Gucci Intense Oud

Gucci Intense Oud Eau De Parfum

First up I have to start off with a scent which is recent to me, but it’s been around a while, that’s Gucci Intense Oud.

When I wear this I feel so elegant and classy, it’s a brilliant scent. The smell is so seductive and sensual, and is a fragrance which I think is perfect for Valentines Day.

Out of all the fragrances I own, there’s a really good chance that I’ll be wearing Gucci Oud Intense for Valentines Day this year.

Dior Sauvage Elixir

Dior Sauvage Elixir Fragrance for men

One of the most talked about fragrances of the past 12 months has been Dior Sauvage Elixir. It’s the newest in the Sauvage line, and is a good choice for Valentines Day for many.

I say many and not all. I think that this version of Sauvage is more suited to the older gent. If you’re 30+ you’ll appreciate the darkness of this scent.

It doesn’t have that youthful X factor of the EDT, Elixir is more of a subtle and mature hit of masculine warm spice.

Dior Sauvage EDT

Dior Sauvage EDT

Dior Sauvage EDT is the original in the Sauvage line, and is still good today. There’s no doubt that it has fast become one of my favourite fragrances of all time. The appeal is almost universal too, and it’s considered the best fragrance of all by many, it’s a winner.

A super seductive and sensual smell, it’s one that is sure to get compliments.

The EDT is just amazing. Dior Sauvage was made to get compliments.

BOSS Bottled Elixir

Boss Bottled Elixir

The latest scent from the line, Boss Bottled Elixir is a dark and warm scent that has a seductive edge that’s perfect to wear on a Valentines Day night out.


Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Le Parfum

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Le Parfum

A brand new edition, Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Le Parfum is a fragrance you should seriously consider. The original version has been a classic since it’s release, and the new version was made for this occasion.

It’s warm and inviting, a very pleasant fragrance to smell. Le Male Le Parfum can definitely be considered a fragrance that women like.

Creed Aventus

Creed Aventus Fragrance

If you want to push the boat out and go for a fragrance which is high end, lots of men swear by Creed Aventus. I have it and I can honestly say, it’s very nice indeed.

Once again it’s an inviting scent, and packs a punch since this one is an eau de parfum. Since it’s a perfume and stronger you’ll not need as much, so be careful not to over-do this one!

Mont Blanc Explorer

Mont Blanc Explorer EDP

Mont Blanc Explorer has became quite a favourite, and there’s a good reason. It smells very similar to Creed Aventus, so smells really nice.

The best part is the price tag, which is far more friendly than Aventus.

Tom Ford Noir

Tom Ford Noir EDP

It’s a spicy and woody fragrance, but Tom Ford Noir does it in a sophisticated and clever way, by not being over-powering but maintains the strong scent.

Again this is an EDP, so be careful on over-spraying it, apply little by little in key areas.

Bvlgari MAN Rain Essence

Bvlgari MAN Rain Essence Men's Fragrance

They’ve only gone and done it, Bvlgari have made a scent that’s as good as the original from the line, this is Bvlgari Man Rain Essence.

This green fresh fragrance has a kick of fresh-spicy note to it that’s so inviting you’ll not get enough of it.

If you’re going on a Valentines Day day date, this is the scent to wear. It’s clean cut profile is crisp and will have you smelling your best throughout the day.

Bleu de Chanel EDT

Bleu De Chanel EDT

Since it’s release in 2010, Bleu de Chanel EDT has became a bit of a modern classic, and it’s already owned by so many lads out there.

If you own it, you’ll know all about the inviting scent, and it is a winner.

If you’ve missed the boat on this you might want to give it another try and seriously consider getting this one, which was made for situations like a Valentines night.

Bleu De Chanel Parfum

Bleu De Chanel Parfum

The same DNA as the EDT, Bleu de Chanel Parfum is a more grown up scent from the line up. It still has all of the goodness, but more refined.

It’s less sharp and citrus, and you get more soft woods. It’s a more rounded version of the original. If the EDT is for younger guys, the Parfum is suited to older gents.

Versace Dylan Blue

Versace Dylan Blue Fragrance

When you’re looking for a super seductive powerhouse, Versace Dylan Blue has to be considered. A masculine style of scent which is noticeable without being overpowering.

It’s an inviting modern classic that almost every lady will love.

Versace EROS

Versace EROS EDT

Known to many as the clubbing scent, Versace EROS is a winner. It’s a nice and inviting scent, with strong hints of mint.

It has it’s reputation for being an attractive and complimentary scent. For that reason, it’s a good choice for Valentines Day.

Dolce And Gabbana The One

Dolce & Gabbana The One EDT Fragrance

With a few different styles in the range, the favourite of most is the original Dolce And Gabbana The One.

It’s musky and woody masculine style is the perfect manly smell, but it’s rounded and refined for the modern gent, making it a great cologne to impress any girl.

Ralph Lauren Polo Blue EDP

Polo Blue EDP Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren Polo Blue EDP is an attractive scent that hits all the right notes. Once again it’s very seductive and inviting. Not a lot is needed with it being fairly strong, sadly the scent doesn’t have amazing longevity.

Floris Santal

Floris Santal

I have to include Floris Santal because it’s one of my favourite fragrances. It’s a masculine floral kind of scent, and is really inviting.

It’s not musky or spicy like you may think of when considering a male scent, but it’s definitely got that compliment-getting factor.

Chanel Allure Homme Sport Extreme

Chanel Allure Homme Sport Extreme Fragrance For Valentines Day

I bought Chanel Allure Homme Sport Extreme a couple of years ago, and it’s really good. As the name suggests, it is alluring which is perfect if you’re meeting up with your lady.

It is slightly woody and spicy but soft, so is completely inoffensive.

Viktor and Rolf Spicebomb

Viktor And Rolk Spicebomb Fragrance For Men

Another easy one to spot with the name is Spicebomb by Viktor and Rolf. You don’t need much of a description for this, the name really does say it all, spicy with a bit of a sweet kick.

These are my top fragrance ideas for guys to wear when going out with girls this Valentines Day.

Now you’ve got a good selection of scents, all you need is your valentines day outfit sorted.

What makes a good Valentines Date Scent?

As mentioned, it should be sensual, dark, and inviting. If you’re on the look out for a new scent, or have a few already that you’d like to try out, I recommend looking at the colour of the fragrance, and also there’s a secret in the name. (here’s some tips on how to blind buy fragrances)

Typically these styles of scents could be golden yellow or golden brown, these should be more woody types of scent.

Clear colour or slightly green could be winners too. However pale yellows or blues could possibly be avoided, as they usually denote lighter citrus, aquatic or fresh scents more suited to day wear and don’t pack the same punch.

A good Valentines Day fragrance should be inviting, seductive and sensual. You should feel good wearing it, and it will attract compliments.

The name of the bottle can be a bit of a giveaway at times too.

Lookout for words relating to nights or the evening. Nuit (night in French) is one which is commonly used, dark or black or other words commonly used by perfume houses.

There’s a lot which could make the list, but these are definitely some of the best and inviting scents which I have come across.
