The Scents of Summer


Still wearing the same cologne you rocked all winter long?  Big mistake.  It’s time to switch those spicy woodsy scents out for something fresher and lighter, and we’ve got just the list you’re looking for.  These 5 scents will help you up your summer game, and cover up that summer funk all at the same time.

Vince Camuto Solare


A perfectly fresh scent with hints of French lavender, fresh mandarin, and juicy red apples.  This fruitiness is balanced out perfectly with notes of pimento leaves, wild sage, and cardamom along side the manly scents of musk, tonka leaves, and the great outdoors.

Available at Macy’s, $70. 

Tommy Bahama Island Life for Him


Next on our list is a taste of the island life.  Tommy Bahama’s summer scent is nothing short of a fresh breath in the tropical breeze.  With notes of bergamot, artemisia, and tarragon which are complimented by the hints of geranium and nutmeg.  This leaves you with the perfect balance of summer and masculinity, the exact mix you should be looking for.

Available at Macy’s, $70.

Yves Saint Laurent L’Homme Sport


A good balance of woodsy and fresh, which means it works for more seasons than the sweltering one.  This is followed up by notes of citrus and amber.  YSL makes some damn good colognes, and this is right on par with the rest of their stable.  Slightly pricier than the last two on our list, but this one is guaranteed to turn heads and start conversation.

Available at Macy’s, $87. 

Dior Homme for Men


Featuring top notes of Moroccan grapefruit, Calabrian bergamot, and Crimean coriander, this is the perfect evening summer scent.  It does a great job of balancing out the dark sexy side of the evening with the fun, refreshing side of summer.

Available at Macy’s, $86.

Tom Ford Neroli Portofino


This Mediterranean inspired scent is as close to clear blue waters as we’re going to get in NYC.  It’s light, it’s refreshing, it’s like taking a vacation with Tom Ford himself in a spray bottle.  Women will love it, men will smell inferior next to it, and you’ll feel like you just stepped onto an ocean view terrace with each spray.

Available at Macy’s, $295.
