Selecting scents for male consumers can be especially challenging. The range of aromas that men prefer can seem limited in comparison to the vast array of fragrances that are marketed toward women. However, with the right ground rules in mind, it is possible to create a wide variety of natural, aromatic blends that men will adore.
When formulating for men, it is best to start out with the basic types of aromas that they tend to prefer. Most male fragrances are composed of woods, waters, and spices. Vanilla also makes a great base for male fragrances and blends. When you are building a unique aroma, remember to keep the basics of perfumery in mind. Base notes, mid-notes, and top notes must be combined thoughtfully to achieve the best possible result. Here are some popular Essential Oils and Absolutes for use in male oriented blends.
