The perfume guide by The Bearded Captain

Hello and greetings my Bearded Soldiers, it’s me your Bearded Captain, leader of all beards and flag bearer of all beards on digital media. I am that beard who tries to make people laugh and I am that beard who tries to make people smile.

My brothers, I pray you’re well and looking after yourselves and your beards! My beloved’s I want to talk about an important issue, and that is the issue of men’s perfume/mens fragrance. To almost carry on from the last blog post about how to wear confidence, which can be found here;

Bearded Soldiers, I can’t state enough the need to have a good fragrance. Now, I am not going to say you should wear one, with this kind of scent, or that kind of scent, but what I will say is, brothers your fragrance is part your identity own it!

What I want to do in this post is share with you three must have fragrances!

Davidoff Run Wild

In this blog post my beloved’s I want give you some humble suggestions from my own opinion in terms of what are a good fragrances. Davidoff Run Wild, has been a personal favourite of mine for some time. Arguably, it might not be as new as other fragrances on the market, but it’s an unmistakably a masculine smell.

Not too strong and not too sweet, Davidoff Run Wild has a pleasant Citrus smell to the nose. As this is Eau De Toilette (nope not errr de toilet) the fragrance just like with other Eau De Toilette fragrances won’t last as long as the Eau De Parfum.

Having said that, it’s still a nice fresh scent (it will get you compliments, I have had plenty) and will bring out the inner confidence in you. You can get this on the internet for approximately £35 for 100ml (3.3 fl oz)

Victor NO9

Next on my list is a bit left-field, it’s Milton Lloyds’ Victor NO9. This is available in a 50ml bottle and an 83 ml bottle. It appear to the naked eye, like it’s a deodorant but the smell and durability of the scent, isn’t that of a conventional deodorant.

This was gifted to me by my good friend. As much as I appreciated the gesture, what I didn’t expect was that this fragrance would be as wonderful as it is.

Best gift, I could have been given!

Sweet, but not too sweet, Victor NO9 has an undeniable masculine underlining smell. The only bad thing about this, is the biggest that it comes in (from what I have seen is 83 ml). What I advise with this fragrance is you can get a twin pack for £11.99 (you’re most welcome to message me for more info).

Hugo Boss Infinite

In my list bothers, these are fragrances that I have bought. The third and final fragrance on my must have fragrance list is Hugo Boss infinite. Bottled in the signature Hugo Boss bottle, the infinite is a worthy member of this list.

I, do favour a more darker smell, but the Infinite smells are blended to perfection. Just like Run Wild, I would recommend the 100ml bottle. There are some fragrances that are too heavy and strong and if you don’t apply them correctly can be over powering.

Christian Dior’s Sauvage comes into mind here. A wonderful fragrance it is, but you can smell someone from the other side of the road, when they decide to what I call swim in it.

Brothers Infinite isn’t one of those smells, it’s a nice fresh smell . In my humble opinion, the key to a good smell is you can smell, that you smell good. Yeah, it’s nice for someone to able to smell a nice smell from you. It’s better than smelling like a skunk!

With these fragrances, these are all fragrances which I have tried, there a few honourable mentions So this is my list brothers, do you agree with this list, or is there any more that I can try ?

Let me know in the comments, it’s over and out from The Bearded Captain.
