The Best Sweet And Floral Fragrances For Men This Summer

Hey guys!

So we’re right in the middle of the summer, and you’ve probably already read my best men’s summer fragrances post, which lists the scents you can wear this season which are all really top colognes. But what if you want something that little bit different? What about something sweet, or floral?

Well, I’ve put together this list, the best sweet and floral fragrances for men. They work best in the summer, and they’re the scents which are just that little bit different. Most men’s fragrances have that bit of manly, masculinity to them, which I do like. But I also like something a little different, which is where these scents come in.

All the scents in this list are either fruity, sweet, floral or fresh…In some cases, some will have more than one note. Some are a bit marmite, you’ll either love them or hate them. The good thing about these kinds of scents is that not a lot of guys wear them, so you’ll stand out and be unique.

Here’s the best sweet and floral fragrances for men you can wear this summer.

Wednesday, 10th July, 2019

Lacoste Elegance Men's Fragrance Review

I’ve already told you about my Summer of 2006, and how my Lacoste Cool Blue takes me right back there. It was a great Summer, and the next year I had another good one, and with that came a new scent. once again from Lacoste, this was Lacoste Elegance.

So it was the Summer of 2007, and I needed a new fragrance. I already owned a few, bought some more, but for one reason or another, I took my bottle of Lacoste Elegance with me on holiday. I think I took another bottle, but this is the one which I remember the most. I went to Bulgaria in the Summer, and this was a great fragrance for the nights.

The 10 Best Men’s Fragrances For The Summer In 2019

The Best Men's Summer Fragrances This Year

There’s no secret that Summer is my favourite season, I love it for so many reasons; There’s so much fashion out there for the Summer which I love, you can be as bright and colourful as you like with your clothing and style options, there’s the weather, which is sometimes sunny and at least a bit warmer ๐Ÿ˜‰ and of course Summer football with the Euros or World Cup at least every other year.

Getting your scent right for the summer is possibly more important that other seasons, as everyone is out and there’s probably more socialising going on in the Summer than other seasons, as everyone wants to come out and play. There’s everything from the Summer BBQ to nights out and holidays abroad, so picking out the right fragrance is crucial.

I always separate my scents into seasons and times; Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter, as well as night or day. Autumn and Winter scents are all about the dark, musky, warming scents, ouds and woods play a big part. When it comes to Spring, and more importantly for this guide, Summer, it comes down to citrus, floral and fresh styles of scents, which can be pungent but subtle and not overpowering.

Here are my favourite Summer colognes which any guy can wear.

Lacoste Cool Play Eau De Toilette For Summer

I was looking through some of my old fragrances and I came across this, Lacoste Cool Play.
