Best Men's Colognes: 10 AMAZING Summer Fragrances

Summer colognes will get you noticed.

Winter is in our rear-view and spring is speeding by. Looking to enjoy the sun in style? You're going to need a fragrance to match the season.

Gentlemen, I give you my list of the top ten best summer fragrances for men. If you own at least one of these, you'll feel like you own the season.

Before we jump into the best fragrances for summer, I want to introduce you to a men's cologne that's excellent year-round: Zaharoff by George Zaharoff.  I've known George for a good ten years, and I can tell you from personal knowledge that he knows what he's doing. 

The Zaharoff Signature Pour Homme lives by one definition: “Humanity – in a bottle.” The oils they use are all-natural, eco-friendly and abide by fair trade regulations. The end results are notes of oud, sandalwood, frankincense, and myrrh. Need to smell good and support a socially conscious brand? Click here to experience Zaharoff Signature Pour Homme.

Before we dive in, we need to understand some of the key terminology surrounding fragrances – we'll be using it a lot from here on out.

The Anatomy of Fragrance

A fragrance is typically divided into three major scent profiles. Each profile tends to smell differently and is defined by the “volatility of its evaporation coefficient.” What does this mean in English? It depends on how long it lingers after being applied.

how to look better choose fragrance

Combining various oils can produce a myriad of top, heart, and base notes in a fragrance.

The profiles are as follows:

Top Notes form the first impression of a fragrance after it is sprayed. Their molecules are loosely packed and thus evaporate quickly. Heart Notes are the main body of any fragrance. These last between 20 minutes to an hour after application. Base Notes comprise the robust foundation of a fragrance. The molecules here are so dense that the scent can linger for up to 24 hours. What Makes A Summer Fragrance?

Now that we have the basics down, let's consider what to look for in a fragrance befitting the season.

It all comes down to the power of association.

What do we associate with summer? The ocean, fruits, and mojitos.


A summer fragrance should encapsulate the scents we associate with the season. Citrusy, oceanic, and peppery scents are ideal. Some fragrances even feature coconut and rum notes.

A summer fragrance has several of the following scents:

The sea Lemon Orange Mint Lemon verbena Bergamot Pepper

Notice a pattern? Most of them are citrus. Keep an eye out for them.

Counting down from ten, here are the RMRS picks for the best men's colognes to use in the summer…

1. Acqua Di Parma: Blu Mediterraneo – Mirto Di Panarea

The Aqua Di Parma brand started in Northern Italy in 1916. However, Blu Mediterraneo has only been around since 2008.

Top notes include lemon and bergamot, followed by a body of oceanic notes and rounded off with a base of cedar and juniper.

The combination of fruity, oceanic, and woody notes makes this fragrance reminiscent of the Mediterranean sea – just as its creators intended.

acqua di parma blu

The Acqua Di Parma Blu Mediterraneo is a solid oceanic fragrance.

It's one of the best men's colognes for summer due to its tropical citrus and sea-based influences.

2. Brioni Brioni

Fun fact – this fragrance boasts the heaviest lid in the industry right now.

It fields a strong lemon top note, followed by heart notes of iris and magnolia. The fragrance is rounded off by a more masculine base of saffron and agarwood.

briono mens fragrance

Brioni is an excellent choice for men who prefer lemony fragrances.

It's a great entry-level fragrance into the world of citrus – especially for lovers of lemon.

3. Missoni Pour Homme

Similarly to Brioni, this fragrance brings strong citrus for the top notes – but they vary between lemon and grapefruit.

The heart notes are unique for this list – ginger, rounded off with a base of sandalwood and oak.

Missoni for men

Missoni Pour Homme is a well-balanced men's cologne.

It's one of the best men's colognes for those of you wanting a little more of a traditionally masculine scent to go with the summer.

4. Neroli Portofino by Tom Ford

Launched in 2011, Neroli Portofino hits you with a symphony of citrus. Mandarin and bitter orange, supported with neroli and African orange flower, come out first with a bang.

neroli portafino cologne fragrance

This fragrance is a good choice for lovers of citrus.

Its heart notes are also neroli and African orange flower, while the base ambrette note is quite faint.

If you like florals and citrus for the summer, then this is a great choice.

5. Versace Eros

The Versace brand takes significant inspiration from Ancient Greece, and Versace Eros is no exception – Eros being the Greek god of love.

It hits you first with top notes of mint, green apple, and lemon. This is followed closely with heart notes of tonka bean, geranium, and ambroxan.

The base notes? Vanilla, vetiver, and oakmoss.

Versace Eros Mens Cologne

A summer fragrance for men who take inspiration from history.

Versace wants to take you back to antiquity with this one, and what were the ancient Greeks if not rugged Mediterranean power-players?

This fragrance is one of the best men's colognes for summer because it embodies just that – masculinity and the tropics.

6. Acqua Di Parma Colonia

Taking it back to Aqua Di Parma, the Number 5 spot belongs to its classic Colonia line.

It's marketed as a particularly floral and citrusy fragrance and – let me tell you gentlemen – they aren't lying.

The overall notes are dominated by Sicilian-style oranges and lemons, rounded off a little by lavender and rosemary. There is also a hint of white musk in the base but it's barely noticeable against the citrus.

Acqua Di Parma Classic

The original Acqua Di Parma is a superior fragrance that successfully blends florals and citrus.

Need a classic Italian fragrance that dominates on citrus? Look no further.

7. Dior Sauvage

Dior Sauvage is a quintessential men's fragrance. I recommend it as one of the best men's colognes for summer because of the intense peppery notes that come into prominence through the top and heart notes.

The base notes are supported by cedar, labdanum, and ambroxan.

Dior Dauvage Mens Fragrance

The Sauvage is considered a quintessential starter men's fragrance. It's well-suited for summer as well.

Overall, it's a great scent to wear for summer nights spent in the city.

8. A*Men Ultra Zest

It's not called “Ultra Zest” for nothing.

This fragrance hits you with intense top notes of blood orange, tangerine, mint, and ginger. Heart notes showcase coffee and pepper while the base notes consist of tonka bean, patchouli, and vanilla.

A*Men Ultra Zest

Need some more orange in your life? You got it.

Don't let the seemingly balanced description fool you, though. This is one of the most intense orange fragrances.

9. Creed Virgin Island Water

This unisex fragrance is probably the most unique on the list – launched in 2007.

The top notes boast some strong coconut supported by lime, orange, and bergamot.

The heart notes show off some ginger, jasmine, and ylang-ylang.

Creed Virgin Island Water

There's no better fragrance that embodies the Carribean.

Most interesting though are the base notes – sugar cane, white musk, and rum. This is a summer fragrance you need if you're in love with the Carribean.

Now for the grand finale…

10. Davidoff Cool Water

Cool Water breaks through with top notes of intense seawater and supported by some mint and lavender.

The heart notes throw down sandalwood, jasmine, geranium, and neroli.

The base notes? Masculine scents of tobacco, cedar, and oakmoss.

davidoff cologne fragrance

Masculine, timeless, and inexpensive – Cool Water by Davidoff.

Why is this number 1 on the list? It's the single best men's cologne for the summer because it encompasses traditionally masculine scents. However, it still adheres to the tropical theme.

It's also a time-tested and inexpensive classic. It's been the go-to fragrance for many men over the last 30 years. For less than 40 bucks you're getting an oceanic blast that is not to be underestimated.

Summary – Best Men's Colognes For Summer

Let's do a quick review:

Acqua Di Parma: Blu Mediterraneo for men who want to feel the Mediterranean. Brioni Brioni for some intense lemon. Missoni Pour Homme for a good balance of summer scents. Neroli Portofino by Tom Ford for strong citrus. Versace Eros for a popular brand that contains tropical and masculine notes. Acqua Di Parma Colonia for men who like citrus and floral notes. Dior Sauvage – the quintessential men's fragrance. A*Men Ultra Zest if you just can't get enough orange. Creed Virgin Island Water – the Carribean in a bottle. Davidoff Cool Water – timeless, inexpensive, masculine, and tropical.

With summer hard on the approach, a stylish man needs to prepare to be in-theme. Fragrance plays a huge role in that.

By zeroing in on scents that remind you of the summer – citrusy and oceanic scents – you can't go too wrong with picking the right fragrance for the season.
