We feel you; floral fragrances can come across being too sweet, girly and a tad bit predictable. But do you know what the catch here is? Thanks to male chemistry, all scents – including the so-called ‘feminine’ ones will smell muskier on a man. Also, as a matter of undisclosed fact, every man’s go to classic perfume has a little hint of floral in it
Also, as rightly said by Blake Lively, “The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence.” And there is nothing more attractive than a confident man spritzing on a fresh floral scent, and stepping out in 100-degree weather. So, it’s time to leave the “Masculine” or “Classic” fragrance for the boys who want to be a ‘man’, and let us show you how to inject floral yet invigorating fragrances into your summer grooming repertoire.
3. Cartier Declaration D’Un Soir Eau De Toilette
We name Cartier Declaration D’Un Soir EDT as one of the trendsetters in modern floral scents. It has been reimagined for modern men and Mathilde Laurant, the nose behind this perfume reveals that she created it to “make the heart beat faster and to drive men to speak their minds.”
Top notes of Black Pepper, Cardamom and Caraway leave an intriguing scent trail, while middle notes of Rose and Nutmeg add spice to the perfume, and well to your life too. The base note is Sandalwood, and that’s where the woodiness comes from.
Feel light, fresh, spicy, warm and charismatic when you wear this perfume.

1. Tom Ford Noir
Want a fragrance that encapsulates floral without making you smell like a garden? Noir by Tom Ford is right up your olfactory alley. If this doesn’t speak of sophistication, we are not sure what else does. It captures the aspect of the man that relishes in immoderation and dares to be extraordinary.
Top notes are Violet, Pink Pepper, Caraway, Bergamot and Verbena; middle notes are vibrant, synergistic blend of saffron, cardamom and nutmeg; base note is milky creation, which traditionally consists of Himalayan snow combined with hints of pistachio, delivered unexpectedly into the core of the fragrance via lentisque resinoid, which is chosen for its crisp, cool, yet lactonic effect.
In conclusion, we would like to state one scent does not reflect the journey of one perfumer but often can reveal multiple adventures that make the fragrance meaningful and exciting!
