    Default Best Mediterranean/herbal men's fragrances

    I love Mediterranean herbs. I am about to look for samples of fragrances that display great, aromatic Mediterranean herbs.

    What are your favorites?

    Aramis Tuscany - that was the first to come to mind. Excellent rendition of Mediterranean herbs and won't break the bank.

    + Loewe PH
    I would add Esencia Loewe (1988) and Agua Brava (1968) by Antonio Puig.

    Taking it to extremes: Romeo Gigli's Sud Est. It doesn't get more herbal/spicy than this.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    you HAVE to try all the Acqua di Parma fragrances in their "Blu Mediterraneo" line. they have terrible longevity but they are extremely high quality mediterranean herbal/floral/citrus frags. think it might be just what you're looking for.

    Yes, this line sounds very intriguing to me. In fact, I started a thread on them several months ago. I will definitely have to sample them. I will have to see if they have sufficient longevity.

    Maybe what you are looking for is found in Tuscan Soul by Ferragamo. A very citric scent that develops into a more herbal heart. And it broadcasts "mediterranean" to all corners.

    Another vote for Tuscany Uomo, plus, in a variety of other styles, Virgilio, Ba´me (though I don't find it all that wearable), Eau du Sud, Aria di Capri, New West for Him, and Fraţche Badiane.

    That style is one of my go-to favorites, if done well (in a dry style). Here are some I like:
    Acqua Classica Borsari
    Acqua da Toletta
    Basile Uomo
    Eau D'Hadrien
    Eau D'Italie
    Essenzia di Zegna
    Grain de Plaisir
    Iskander
    L'Eau Guerriere
    Magnifico I: Mirto Imperiale
    Sud Est
    Victrix
    Virgilio
    odysseusm
