5 Male fragrances that smell great on women

12 November 2019 | By Lynette Botha

Sometimes, you just don’t feel like smelling like a bouquet of flowers – and that’s totally OK. Here are some divine masculine fragrances to try instead.


Don’t be divided by gender-specific fragrances – there are some amazing male scents that smell just as good on ladies. Here are five we love.

Davidoff Cool Water EDT

While the creators of this fragrance have brought out a version for women, we believe the original is still the best. As one of the most popular male fragrances of all time (with good reason!), its fresh and zingy notes are uplifting and light, and completely addictive. 

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male EDT

This is another classic male fragrance that is loved by women the world over. Its sultry combination of aromatic spices and sensual vanilla, with a light, powdery dry down, make it instantly recognisable. It’s the perfect everyday scent as it’s not cloying and just the right amount of sweet. 

Paco Rabanne Pure XS EDT

If you like a scent that sits more on the masculine side of the scale, you’ll love this one. It’s bold and intoxicating, yet not overpowering. The fragrance’s fresh and earthy notes are expertly balanced with bursts of citrus and ginger. We bet your man will be spritzing this just as often as you will. 

Calvin Klein CK One EDT

Possibly one of the first fragrances to ever be classified as unisex, this universally adored scent really does smell great on everyone. It is neither masculine nor feminine, just effervescent and crisp. Notes of fresh citrus and delicate florals make it a winner for all. 

Hugo Boss Bottled EDT

If you like a woody and earthy scent, this one is right up your alley. A floral heart softens the masculinity of the cedarwood and vetiver base notes, and crisp and fruity top notes uplift it.
