Kate Walsh's new "Boyfriend" perfume inspires us to find which male scents we love most.
Though scientists often discredit the power of cologne, we know the truth. And after a breakup, as in Walsh's case, you find yourself missing his scent and looking for ways to recreate it, like going to the fragrance counter and buying a men's scent. As Walsh told Total Beauty, she did this very thing and it occured to her that you don't really need a boyfriend to have a Boyfriend. So after she sorted through her ideas, it was "the boyfriend story" she liked best.
We polled the YourTango female staff to tell us their favorite male scents. The answers, it turns out, lean towards classic, simple scents. Here are the top 6 male scents we love, in no particular order:
1. Old Spice. Specifically we mean the deodorant and the body wash. Old Spice products have a distincitve scent that's not overpowering. It's a classic smell we can't get enough of.
2. Victoria's Secret Very Sexy For Him. The title says it all: it's sexy. It has a citrusy scent that creeps up on us, leaving us wanting more.
3. Guy Laroche's Drakkar Noir. A classic cologne that's stood the test of time for a reason. It's spicy, woodsy scent is super masculine.
