The best men’s fragrances under $110 that are perfect for summer

As the seasons change, so do the scents and smells that define the time of year. In the summer months, citrus and clean linen are in, and leather and spices are left behind. Winter scents simply don’t cut it in the summer.

If you know a guy in need of a summer fragrance makeover, then stick with us. We tested some of the most popular colognes to find the best men’s fragrances to perk up your summer.

Nautica Voyage

It wouldn’t be summer without a Nautica scent, and Voyage is sure to bring you a fresh, citrusy summer feel. Green leaf, apple, and water lotus bring a scent that makes you instantly think of being out in the open water on a sunny day, while the hint of mimosa brings Sunday brunches back into focus.

Coming in under $20 ($17.99 to be exact) is another plus, giving you the high-end smell without the high-end price.

Dior Homme Sport

This Dior fragrance perfectly balances the maturity of heavier, woody scents with the freshness of lighter, fruity notes like blood orange and grapefruit.

Great reviews note that this is long-lasting, so you can enjoy your scent all day without having to reapply. Plus, it’s Dior, one of the biggest names in fragrance and fashion, so you know you’re investing in a high-quality product.

Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Profumo

A list of summer colognes just isn’t complete without Giorgio Armani, particularly Acqua di Gio Profumo. This scent is perfect for those who like an edgier, darker scent for summer. Patchouli and incense blended with marine notes make this the ideal fragrance for summer nights. It’s deep and complex without being as heavy as fall and winter scents.

At $102, it’s on the pricier side since you are paying for a luxury brand. While the price is pretty steep, the raving reviews assure that the investment is well worth it.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue

Another refreshingly light and citrusy fragrance is the aptly named Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana. The inclusion of mandarin, grapefruit peel, and juniper makes for an ocean scent that pairs well with a tropical getaway.

This scent is more complex than your average fruity colognes. The final base notes of pepper and rosewood give it a rugged, mature finish. At $70 for a 2.5-ounce bottle, this is also on the more expensive end, but it’s a fair price to pay for one of the biggest names in luxury fashion.

For those long summer evenings filled with good food and even better friends, a fragrance that matches the mood is a must. Colognes should enhance the environment and match your personality, whether it’s darker sandalwood or brighter citrus, and these men’s fragrances will make sure you keep those summer memories going. Keep in mind, though, a little goes a long way, so spritz with a light hand.
