HOLIDAY SHOPPING GUIDE 2012 -- Best-Selling Men's Fragrances

Hey everyone! Today is Day 4 of my 5 day series where I show you a comprehensive holiday shopping guide based on my experience working in beauty retail!

Today we'll be looking at a selection of the top selling men's fragrances. These are classic staples that are perfect gifts for everyone from your boyfriend to your dad. I've included a brief description of each one below the collage! For the fragrances, I won't be including prices because they are so subjective based on where you shop, whether you get an EDT or an EDP, and what size you get.

  1. Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio Pour Homme -- A scent of freedom, full of wind and water. Bitter citrus combines with rosemary and salty sea nuances. A woody base and soft, smoky trail soften sharp notes of spices.
  2. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme -- A classic citrus fragrance. Top notes are sicilian mandarin, juniper, grapefruit, and bergamot. Middle notes are rosemary, brazillian rosewood, and pepper. Base notes are musk, oak moss, and incense.
  3. Chanel Bleu de Chanel -- A woody, aromatic fragrance. Bleu de Chanel features nutmeg, ginger, sandalwood, patchouli, mint, jasmine, grapefruit, citruses, vetiver, incense, cedar, and pink pepper.
  4. Calvin Klein Euphoria for Men -- Another woody, aromatic cologne. Top notes are: ginger and pepper. Middle notes are black basil, sage, and cedar. Base notes are amber, patchouli, brazilian redwood, and suede.
  5. Ralph Lauren Big Pony Fragrances for Men -- A collection of four unique scents, 1 is based on lime and oak. 2 is based on chocolate and musk. 3 is based on mint and ginger. 4 is based on pink grapefruit and kyara wood. 
  6. Giorgio Armani Armani Code for Men -- An Oriental, spicy fragrance. Top notes are bergamot and lemon. Middle notes are star anise, olive blossom, and guaiac wood. Base notes are leather, tobacco, and tonka bean.
  7. Ralph Lauren Polo Black -- Features sandalwood, tonka bean, patchouli, mango, sage, tangerine, lemon, and wormwood.
  8. Ralph Lauren Polo Blue for Men -- Top notes are melon, mandarin orange, and cucumber. Middle notes are basil, sage, and geranium. Base notes are musk, woodsy notes, and suede.
  9. Dolce & Gabbana The One for Men -- A very classic fragrance. Top notes of bergamot, coriander, and basil. Middle notes are cardamom, ginger, and neroli. Base notes of cedar and tobacco.
  10. Gucci Guilty Pour Homme -- Designed for the charismatic alpha male. It opens with lavender,  lemon, and orange blossom and closes with hints of cedar, patchouli.

And there you have it! I usually get Chris a new cologne every Christmas and this year I really have to.. the one I got him last year isn't doing it anymore now that I'm pregnant. I know there's a couple of fragrances on this list that I'll be looking at specifically!

Tomorrow I'll be taking a break from the Holiday Sopping Guide to bring you a fragrance review. See you then!
