  • Daytime: Choose a fresh, woody perfume that’s not too intense. It’ll be perfect for work or casual outings.
  • Evening/Night: Pick a more sophisticated woody scent if you’re heading out for a special occasion or dinner.

Remember, the best perfume for men is the one that resonates with your taste and makes you feel confident!
