    Default Best Warm/Winter Masculine Scent for men?

    In search for a cheap enough cologne (not over €40) for winter. Preferably a warm scent but it has to be masculine. I have Azzaro Pour Homme which is similar to what I'm looking for but it isn't strong enough on my skin, and it doesn't have that warm factor (What I mean by warm is maybe something spicy or oriental but still masculine) I'm looking for. Longevity and strong Sillage is essential too.
    Also I'm 18 so nothing old fashioned or grandpa-ish but I'm not against wearing something more suited to somebody older.

    Welcome to Basenotes!

    If you want to look at classic masculines perfect for winter, look at Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme, Aramis JHL.
    If you want modern masculines, consider Burberry London (performance can be spotty), A* Men, Pure Malt, Pure Havane.
    Also, Fahrenheit and Eau Sauvage Parfum from Dior.
    If you can afford it, try out Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford.
    Another one to consider would be Midnight in Paris edp.

    A vintage bottle of Calvin Klein Obsession, since the newer formulation is pretty different. It has a deep and rich cinnamon/amber/vanilla combination but still musky.

    Halston Z14 might fit the bill, beautifully warm and smoky although it is a bit of a classic smell which may feel a bit old to you (don't trust reviews, though, a lot of which talk of lemons and citrus which I don't really get at all from it, I get mostly cinnamon and leathery mossy smell). It's cheap though, and 7ml splash samplers are available.

    You won't smell like many other people around you. And you'll (apparently) be able to tell people you're wearing Tom Ford Italian Cypress

    +1 to this. I got my bottle today (regular version) and wore it, and it is a very good fragrance, especially at the price you can find it for. A bit more mature than 1 Million etc, and has a higher quality feel. I have tried the EdP and went for the EdT, as I liked that the rum note was a bit brighter, but will get the EdP someday. Both are highly recommendable.

    D&G The One is also very good and warm for the winter months.

    You mentioned that you want something similar to Azzaro Pour Homme but warmer, what about Azzaro do you really like? Just for reference, Azzaro is a fragrance type called a Fougere, with an ambery base and two signature notes running through it, Anise and Juniper.

    im a bit of a noob but what I like about Azzaro is that's its masculine yet aromatic without being feminine, powdery or floral, what I suppose I'm looking for is Azzaro with a twist, like a bit of Opium PH thrown in there.. Something to make that type of fragrance stronger and warmer. Although aromatic, on my skin I find azzaro to be a slightly cool/chemical smell..

    It's going to be a vote for Fahrenheit from me. I only recently discovered it properly to my shame. I can fully appreciate why so many recommend it.

    However, you've suggested something spicy or oriental, which also has good longevity and strong sillage preferably. With all of those in mind, could I recommend Aramis Havana too? Have a look around online for that one.

    Burning Ice is a really nice IMO, especially for the price you can get it for!

    I'd like to suggest Lomani Body and Soul.....smells similar to Spicebomb to my nose, but less sweet and more woody with black pepper instead of pink pepper. VERY good long lasting scent IMO for a terrific price!

    Here is the note list: Lomani Body and Soul by Lomani is a Woody Spicy fragrance for men. Top notes are grapefruit and black pepper; middle notes are lavender, myrrh and white tobacco; base notes are cedar, amber, vanilla and musk

    OK, I've been having a think. This isn't the "Best Warm/Winter Masculine Scent for men" (you'll get as many suggestions as there are days in a year!), but it is probably what you are looking for. Lancome Hypnose Homme.
