This classic scent was introduced in 1921 and remains popular today, with its fresh citrus and jasmine overtones.

Joop! Homme Sport
I know, I know. A men’s cologne on a top ten list? Hear me out. Like most men who are into fashion and style, I have at least one cologne in my wardrobe—usually more. Over time, however, scents can become redundant and you may find yourself tired of your collection; thus I like to rotate through different bottles so that nothing becomes old hat. Joop!
Calvin Klein One Eau de Toilette Spray
Named after Calvin Klein’s first fragrance and launched in 1986, CK One is a cool, fresh scent for both men and women.

It’s one of our favorites—and it has stood the test of time. If you’re looking for a perfume that everyone will love, then look no further than CK One.
This men’s cologne was created by an artist, and it reflects his passion.
