    Default Your favourite notes in men's colognes

    What notes in men's colognes do you find the most enjoyable? This could mean sexy, cozy or whatever adjective you choose to interpret as 'enjoyable'.

    Do you prefer traditional masculine notes like citruses and woods? or perhaps you're more of an oriental kind of girl and prefer vanilla or amber?

    No favorite. Depends on the combination of the notes used.

    I love the chypres - they are so perfectly suited to men... or at least the ones I like.

    Parsing it out - leather, oakmoss, woods, conifer, tobacco.

    Rose! It's the most romantic note in men's colognes ever! Followed closely by woods, vetiver, tobacco, spices, and leather. I prefer to keep lavender for myself .
