5 Sexy BAD BOY Colognes for Men in 2023 [Updated]
Looking to exude a bad boy attitude? We’ve got you covered. In today’s article, we’re taking a quick look at 5 bad boy colognes which will serve you well in just about any situation. We’ve worn these colognes extensively and each one will work well for a man looking to assert a seductive presence.
5. Azzaro Wanted by Night
Wanted by Night is a modern designer cologne which undeniably evokes those bad boy vibes. It contains a vigorous cinnamon note; which dries down into mature tobacco, woody, and leather accords.
It’s a powerful, lingering scent to wear in the cooler months, and applicable across a range of occasions.
A reviewer on Fragrantica.com had this to say about Wanted by Night:
This is the quintessential bad boy, sexy-guy-frag. Easily could be for date nights or intimate situations, probably perfect for bars or clubs too. 😉 Wouldn’t recommend this in the summer, it’s basically for cooler weather.Fragrantica.com
We undertook our own more detailed review on Wanted by Night here.
Did we also mention it’s very affordable? A great option for the budget conscious.
4. Acqua di Gio Profumo
Now bear with us on this one.
You may be wondering why a fresh aquatic scent has made its way onto our Top 5 list. After all, it does contain marine, bergamot, and sage notes.
Well, it’s all thanks to the masterstroke addition of a dark incense note to the aroma. This really deepens the fragrance and gives it a mysterious edge.
Look at what this Fragrantica.com user had to say about Profumo:
Right off the bat, this is definitely for a mature man, 25 years old+. That brooding element I previously wrote is fitting as this adds a hint of dark notes that make this more mysterious/interesting. It is still fresh like the original, but adds a sexy gravitating pull to it.Fragrantica.com
We agree with the sentiments above, and strongly encourage you to give this bad boy summer scent a try.
3. V&R Spicebomb Extreme
Spicebomb Extreme was always going to make this list.
It’s an explosive combination of tobacco and pepper, blended cleverly with sweet vanilla to keep the fragrance balanced.
Spicebomb Extreme is best in cooler seasons, but I’ve pulled it off in warmer months thanks to the fresh spiciness present in the aroma.
A review on Fragrantica.com had this to say about Spicebomb Extreme:
It is very spicy, warm, sweet, alluring, and smooth. An awesome combination of vanilla, black pepper, and tobacco here, with the caraway and lavender hiding in the background. It is one of the best fragrances incorporating those notes to me, even when compared to fragrances with more than 2x the price of this one.Fragrantica.com
We enjoy this cologne so much we conducted our own full review here.
2. Tom Ford Ombre Leather
The masculine leather fragrance Ombre Leather was another addition to this list we just had to include.
Ombre Leather is known for its daring and smooth leather accord, elegantly blended around warm spicy and floral notes.
This is one of the most wearable leather fragrances on the market. Additionally, it’s bold, yet sexy and appealing; perfect for the modern bay boy.
A Fragrantica.com reviewer had these remarks about this scent:
Opens with a bold realistic leather accord – dark and smokey with some underlying sweetness. Smells like a brand new designer wallet. After a while, the leather becomes softer and creamier and a beautiful floral sweetness and amber warmth becomes more pronounced. The leather + jasmine contrast is stunning yet somehow it fits perfectly.Fragrantica.com
Ombre Leather is a favourite of ours too, so we had to review it in more detail.
1. Dior Sauvage
It would be a SIN not to include the globally popular Dior Sauvage EDP in this Top 5 bad boy colognes list!
Sauvage EDP is all about bergamot, pepper, and lavender that’s underpinned by a seductive, ambery ambroxan accord. They combine to produce a fresh, spicy, sweet, and musky aroma.
One reviewer on Fragrantica.com had this to say about Sauvage EDP:
So good (actually great) that it’s one of those rare finds that transcends all age groups, seasons, and reasons for wearing. It’s like it has a metamorphic quality ingredient that enables Sauvage edp to suit the wearer, no matter who he is.Fragrantica.com
