Here are 5 of the hottest men’s fragrances in 2022.
Chanel Blue by Chanel
Bleu De Chanel is elegance made manifest. Launched in 2014, Bleu De Chanel is still one of the most recognized and celebrated fragrances. Gaspard Ulliel, a famous French actor was the face of Bleu De Chanel since its release, but passed away in January 2022.
The cologne opens with a fresh citrus scent derived from a combination of grapefruit, lemon and mint. Heart notes include ginger, nutmeg, jasmine and melon. This gives the perfume a woody-aromatic composition. After a while, the fragrance will settle into base notes of frankincense, vetiver, cedar, sandalwood and patchouli.
The fruity and citrus nuances make Bleu de Chanel the perfect summer fragrance. It is much more reserved than Sauvage, but Bleu de Channel remains one of the most recognized fragrances of 2022. It embodies the personality of the king who is noble, strong, individualistic and not inclined to bend.
Sauvage by Dior
By far the most popular cologne of 2022, Sauvage by Dior is one of the spicier and bolder scents on this list. Originally released in 2015, Sauvage saw a meteoric rise in sales after its brand ambassador Johnny Depp won the libel suit against ex-wife Amber Heard.
Sauvage was inspired by wide open spaces such as deserts and a man’s desire to venture into uncharted territory. The top notes of Sauvage are bergamot and black pepper. This is followed by heart notes of Sichuan and pink pepper. The first two notes are a spice and citrus accord, a dominant combination that works equally well day or night. The base notes are cedar, labdanum and ambroxan. This ensures that the initially spicy notes will slowly become sweeter and more velvety as the day progresses.
It is important to note that Sauvage is not an overpowering fragrance and is at its best when used in spring or summer. Although discreet, Sauvage is surprisingly powerful and can last up to 12 hours.
Atlantis is the signature scent of New York-based skincare brand Blu Atlas. Over the past year, Blu Atlas has dominated the skincare scene with its natural ingredients and 100% money back guarantee. According to the company, Atlantis is a 100% vegan and all-natural cologne that contains no artificial fragrances.
Atlantis has a relatively simpler scent profile compared to other colognes on this list. Its top note is bergamot, which gives the fragrance a fresh citrus note. There is also a hint of earth when it comes to bergamot scents. The heart notes include clary sage which gives it a fresh, herbal scent. Base notes are patchouli, which is often described as a sweet, earthy and aromatic scent. Atlantis is by far the most offbeat scent on this list, but it’s also a unique scent that could signal a sea change for the fragrance industry.
