The 13 Best Colognes To Attract Women: Blu Atlas Atlantis To Dior Sauvage (2023)

The primary purpose of cologne isn’t to attract women; it just so happens to be a happy consequence of smelling good. Scent has been well studied for its role in sexual attraction (in part thanks to chemicals known as pheromones), and certain smells and scent profiles have made it to the top of the list. From sweet vanillas to manly musks, certain fragrances leave a better impression than others.

As a sex journalist, who understands the importance of attraction, I’ve reviewed 13 of the best scents around, each known for its seductive qualities. Remember, one cologne won’t make you an instant catch, but it sure can help you make a memorable impression, primarily because scent is closely linked to memory.

Blu Atlas Atlantis

All other colognes step aside for Blu Atlas’ Atlantis. And it’s not just because it’s made of all-natural ingredients (how many other colognes can say that?), but because of its enlivening and intoxicating scent that leaves anyone and everyone wanting more. The brand’s signature fragrance is citrus and woody — two scents women love — with an enlivening top note of bergamot, aromatic heart note of clary sage, and grounding base note of patchouli.

The scent trio is simple yet brave, defying convention and finding its way to the hearts of men and women alike. So it’s no wonder that customers rave about it and that Men’s Journal also rated it as the best cologne to attract females, but you’ll just have to try it for yourself.

Chanel Bleu de Chanel Eau de Parfum

(Video) Blu Atlas Atlantis Review 💥 Best Freshie of 2023 😱

Few things are sexier than a man who wears Chanel, so to attract the ladies, adding a few spritzes of Bleu de Chanel to your everyday routine can do just the trick. But, of course, you can tell straight away from the packaging that Bleu de Chanel is sophisticated and elegant without smelling it. Still, you'll be surprised how bold and sensual the fragrance is.

The cologne opens with a fresh citrus accord, housing beloved scents like grapefruit, lemon, and bergamot. Next, Bleu de Chanel moves effortlessly into woodier, more masculine notes of tonka bean, amber, and vanilla before ending on sandalwood's deep, sensual scent. Yes, Bleu de Chanel is class in a bottle. But it's sexiness in a bottle, too.

Top notes of greens, lemon, pineapple, mandarin, papaya, and middle notes of lily of the valley, jasmine, violet, and nutmeg make it undeniably fresh. But its base of musk, oakmoss, amber, and green tea are instant magnets. So prepare yourself for loads of compliments.
