Understanding Men’s Perfume Needs
Historical Evolution of Men's Grooming Habits:
Men's grooming habits have come a long way over the years. Initially, men only used aftershave or cologne, but now their use of eau de parfum and niche fragrances have become increasingly popular. Men's grooming has evolved to include more products and attention to detail than ever before.
Unique Features of Male Skin:
A study found a few years back that one in two men experience skin care problems (US data, Kantar Men’s Grooming Study, May 2020).
A recent review of scientific research into the differences between men's and women's skin found the following
- male skin is more prone to acne because men produce double the amount of sebum than women
- the skin parameters of hydration, transepidermal water loss, microcirculation, pigmentation, and thickness are generally higher in men than in women
- the skin's pH is higher in women than in men
- the combination of regular shaving and a rougher skin texture lead to increased dryness and irritation in men’s skin.
- men's skin also has larger pores.
All this indicates that male fragrances and skin care products in general, have to address & solve the unique challenges of men's skin.
In contrast, women's skin is thinner, more sensitive, and has a higher water content. This means that fragrances designed for women will behave differently on men's skin.
Aftershave and perfume designed specifically for men's skin can address these unique features by offering nourishing and soothing properties to prevent irritation and provide a pleasant fragrance.
It is essential to choose a fragrance that is specifically formulated for men to avoid skin problems and ensure the best possible aroma.
Why Men Wear Perfume:
Men and women wear perfume for different reasons.
Men often wear perfume to feel more confident and attractive, while women often wear it as an accessory to complement their outfit or mood. Additionally, men may wear cologne or aftershave to help soothe irritation after shaving.
Where Do Men Apply Perfume or Aftershave?
Men should apply perfume to their pulse points, the neck, wrists and chest. These areas have a higher body temperature, which helps to activate the fragrance.
Aftershave is naturally applied after the grooming routine to the face to soothe irritation and add fragrance as a finishing touch.
Men, just like women, may also need to reapply the fragrance later in the day to maintain their desired perfume.
The temptation is to apply more perfume in the morning to avoid have to re-apply fragrance later in the day. However, too much fragrance can be overwhelming and a Travel Size fragrance that allows men to re-apply it later in the day is a better solution.
The Difference Types Of Male Products:
Aftershave is a product specifically designed to soothe irritation after shaving. In the US, the term Cologne is synonymous with Aftershave.
Eau Fraiche, Eau de Toilette, Eau de Cologne and Eau de Parfum are fragrances with different concentrations of perfume oil, with Eau de Parfum being the most concentrated and Eau Fraiche & After Shave being the least.
These products allow men to choose their fragrance depending on the perfume longevity and intensity they prefer: do they prefer feel fresh and energised in the morning with an After Shave to start the day or do they expect their fragrance to last all day, and even be still present when they go out in the evening.
Men's Fragrance Notes and Women’s Fragrance Notes:
Men's fragrances typically have more aromatic, woody, oriental, spicy and earthy notes and accords, while women's fragrances are softer, constructed around flowers, oriental and chypre notes.
However, the past decade has seen unisex fragrances growing in popularity and the distinction between male and female fragrances has increasingly blurred.
Typical Masculine Fragrance Families
Perfumes for men, can be classified into the following olfactive families:
- Fougere - an accord, rather than a specific ingredient. that is fresh yet sensuous. With citrus, lavender, coumarin, moss, woods and musks
- Woody - built around woody notes of cedar, sandalwood, patchouli, guaiac wood, vetiver and more
- Oriental - balsamic fonds dominate these fragrances with notes of vanilla, amber and woods in combination with a fresh or unusual top.
- Chypre - another accord, characteristically with a fresh top (typically citrus) and an oakmoss base that includes woods, e.g. patchouli
- Citrus - Bergamot, orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit, aldehydes
- Floral - with subfamilies around citrus, aromatic, aquatic, herbal, fruity, spicy, woody, ambery and oriental notes.

The Unique Properties of Men's Skin:
Introduction: Understanding The Differences
When it comes to skincare, one size doesn't fit all. Men and women have distinct biological and physiological differences that extend to their skin. While both genders share common skincare concerns, understanding the unique properties of men's skin is essential for tailoring effective skincare routines. In this article, we will delve into the distinctive characteristics of men's skin compared to women's and explore how this knowledge can inform a personalized approach to skincare.
Thickness and Density
Men's skin is typically thicker and denser than women's skin. This is primarily due to higher levels of collagen and elastin, structural proteins responsible for skin's firmness and elasticity. Thicker skin can provide a slight advantage in terms of wrinkle resistance, but it also makes men's skin more prone to clogged pores and acne.
One of the most significant differences between men's and women's skin is sebum production. Sebum, an oily substance produced by sebaceous glands, helps keep the skin hydrated and acts as a natural barrier against environmental pollutants. Men tend to produce more sebum than women, which can lead to oilier skin and an increased likelihood of acne breakouts.
Facial hair is unique to men, and its presence impacts the characteristics of men's skin. Shaving, while necessary for many men, can lead to irritation, ingrown hairs, and sensitivity. Understanding how to properly care for shaved skin is crucial for men's skincare routines.
Men and women tend to experience aging differently. Men often show signs of aging later than women due to their thicker skin and higher collagen levels. However, when signs of aging do appear, they can be more pronounced. Wrinkles, particularly around the eyes and forehead, tend to be deeper in men.
Both men and women are susceptible to the harmful effects of UV radiation, but men's skin is often less well-protected due to less subcutaneous fat and fewer melanocytes. This means men are more vulnerable to sunburn and an increased risk of skin cancer. Sun protection is crucial for men's skincare to prevent premature aging and skin damage.
The pH level of the skin, which measures its acidity or alkalinity, differs between men and women. Men generally have a slightly lower skin pH, making their skin more acidic. This acidity can provide some protection against harmful bacteria but may also make men's skin more prone to irritation from certain skincare products.
Men typically have better blood flow to their skin than women. This increased circulation can result in a healthier complexion and quicker healing of minor wounds or skin irritations. However, it can also lead to increased redness or sensitivity when the skin is irritated.
Understanding these differences in men's skin is essential when selecting skincare products. Men's skincare products are often formulated to address specific concerns such as oiliness, shaving-related issues, and thicker skin. Look for products that cater to these unique properties, like oil-free moisturizers, post-shave balms, and sunscreens designed for daily use.
While there are significant differences between men's and women's skin, it's essential to remember that skincare is a personal journey. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to skincare, as individual variations play a significant role in skin health.
However, recognizing the unique properties of men's skin allows for more targeted and effective skincare routines.
Whether you're a man looking to maintain healthy, youthful skin or a skincare professional assisting clients, understanding these distinctions is the first step towards achieving the best possible skincare outcomes.
Ultimately, everyone can benefit from a well-informed and tailored approach to skincare that considers their specific needs and concerns.
