When it comes to choosing a fragrance, many of us have our favourite types. Some prefer sweet and fruity scents, while others lean towards powdery florals or head-turning oriental options. If aromatic perfumes are your go-to, you’ve come to the right place.

What are aromatic perfumes?

It can be challenging to imagine an aromatic fragrance based on the title alone. What exactly does an aromatic perfume smell like? Often herbal, natural, clean, and fresh. There are lots of beautiful perfumes to choose from in this fragrance family. Let’s get you started with some of our favourites.

Davidoff Cool Water

This fresh, aromatic aftershave is pretty masculine, but that doesn’t mean only men can wear it. Top notes combine mint, lavender, and rosemary, while darker, muskier tones kick in towards the heart. Davidoff Cool Water has been a favourite since it was released in 1988, and it doesn’t look to be going anywhere.

Paco Rabanne Pour Homme

Paco Rabanne does fragrance right, and this early release is no exception. Aromatic top notes include sage, rosemary, and rosewood, while lavender and amber open out later. It’s a smart, timeless choice for daytime or special occasions.

Elizabeth Arden Green Tea

Elizabeth Arden Green Tea is a light, aromatic fragrance that’s perfect for spritzing on every morning. Enjoy notes of caraway, green tea, peppermint, and fennel. Whether you wear it for work or an evening out, this aromatic Elizabeth Arden perfume is sure to make you feel great.

Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme Intenso

If you’re after something a little more intense, this woody aromatic fragrance from Dolce & Gabbana could be for you. It’s a new take on the classic Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme, with notes of basil, lavender, and tobacco. This aromatic exudes elegance, making it a perfect choice for special occasions.

Giorgio Beverly Hills for Men

This masculine fragrance has woody and aromatic notes that work day and night. Think bergamot, cinnamon, amber, and oakmoss. Its earthy feel makes it perfect for wearing on the go – a timeless signature scent for men or women.

Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza

This reinterpretation of the original Acqua di Parma Colonia is citrusy and woody, with aromatic notes of rosemary, clove, and jasmine. Treat yourself, or give this luxurious Acqua di Parma fragrance as a gift to somebody special.

Clinique Aromatics Elixir

This intriguing fragrance from Clinique is sure to stand out among your collection. It was made in 1975, making it the oldest perfume from Clinique. It’s stood the test of time, with aromatic notes of verbena, sage, and chamomile giving way to sweet, floral notes.
