Fragrances - Something most of us wear on a daily basis, and with so many out there, sometimes it can sometimes be hard to find scents that you feel good wearing, or that stand the test of time. I'm a huge fragrance fan and often wear numerous scents throughout the day, which is why I wanted to share my 'Top 5 Fragrances for Men' on my blog. I'm no expert, but have a fair few in my collection and over time, have found myself gravitating towards the same ones and have built up my standard portfolio of go-to scents. So without further ado, here they are.

"Halfeti eau de parfum by Penhaligon’s draws inspiration from the lavish goods traded with Turkey: exotic florals, spices, soft leathers and precious fabrics. The fragrance is named for the small Turkish village of Halfeti, where enchanting roses grow on the banks of the Euphrates river. Dark and mysterious, the roses are an intense shade of crimson, so dusky they appear to be black."

"Wood, leather, marble, and gold. These luxurious elements of a Persian palace are the inspiration behind the architecture of Creed’s Royal Oud Eau de Parfum. A grand melange of silky sandalwood and Lebanese cedar lead to the smooth woody depth of lush galbanum and peppery angelica. The opulent and majestic base reveals precious oud, one of the rarest and most revered of ingredients so greatly esteemed by ancient Asian cultures."
