Perfumes That Men Love on Women

Many say there are three things men look for in a woman. Beauty, personality and a pleasant sensuous smell. 

If a woman smells good heads will turn her way as she passes by and many will be that of men. 

There are men in this world that will chase after a woman if he finds the fragrance she leaves lingering behind is intense and overpowering. Such men instantly turn to hunters going after prey and they use their charm and good looks to succeed in their hunt.

Perfumes which give off scents of vanilla, fruits and flowers are usually the type of fragrances that many a man find hard to resist.

Difference Between Eau de cologne and Perfumes

Eau de cologne is made with a less concentration of essential oils. Perfume on the other hand is prepared using a higher concentration of essential oils which is why the fragrance lingers on the skin longer than that of eau de cologne.

People who use eau de cologne do so mainly because it gives a light fragrance and not one which can sometimes be overpowering like certain perfumes.
