Fragrance for dates
What fragrance is best for dating? Something that smells good for women but that I can wear to work too.
Hey Thomas. Great question!
We have loads of fragrances on our Products pages. What sort of budget are you looking at?
I have some of my most complimented fragrances here: https://manforhimself.com/grooming/fragrance/5-most-complimented-fragrances/
A personal favourite of mine is Dunhill Icon Absolute (https://manforhimself.com/products/dunhill-icon-absolute/).
This fragrance is rich and decadent, yet playful. It’s quite often taken me from a quiet night at a bar to a night on the dance floor. Quite literally, anything could happen when wearing this fragrance.
It’s an oud fragrance without being that ‘stuck on the back of your throat’ vibe. The bergamot and black pepper give it an instant kick, whilst the base notes of Oud wood, tobacco and Tuscan leather give it a weight and sensuality that makes it perfect for the evening.
So I’ve never looked into Robin’s suggestions for fragrances but Chrome by Azzaro has worked for me for years. I get a ton of compliments. I even have guys shyly ask me what I’m wearing so they can get it themselves. I dunno if it’s a hip suggestion but real world experience has had me going to it for about 15 years.
Tom Ford Black Orchid has been my most complimented to date, Loving the new range by Molten Brown now as well though – I picked up Russian Leather and it’s great for a wee night out.

I know there is a lot there to choose from but personally their all the ones i own and rotate through around the year and wear to both work and also on dates with my partner, I personally leave all my more expensive colognes for the weekends and dates or special occasions and for work I try and use my more cost effective fragrances.
Also remember on your night our or date account for weather conditions I personally love using the weather to advantage with choosing a scent in that if its a cold wet night id opt for something more woody and warm scented as opposed to if its a hot day id opt for something more fresh and floral!
I hope this has given you a few options! Let us know how you get on and what fragrance you go for!
