Looking for a unique body spray that’ll actually last quite a long time? I’ve found some of the best options ranging from high-end designer to more affordable brands that’ll totally hit for just about any budget. Let’s go!
Designers seem to be coming up with more and more body sprays for men these days and, well, I’m not complaining. One of the cool things about having the right spray is that most also double as a deodorant or antiperspirant, so you’re really killing two birds with one stone. You can stay fresh and smell great all at the same time.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BODY SPRAY & COLOGNE
Believe it or not there actually is a difference between body sprays and colognes. However, there isn’t much of a difference. We checked in with the grooming experts over at Rooftop Squad, and the major difference are really centered around price and lasting effect.
- Typically cologne lasts much longer than traditional body sprays.
- Typically sprays should be around 40% – 60% cheaper when it comes to price.
- Some body sprays can also double as a deodorant or even antiperspirant.
While some body sprays are a bit on the pricey side, you can always find some that are perfect for those who are ‘budget friendly’ but still totally do the trick. I don’t believe in not showering, but I may have been guilty of that a time or two over the weekend and sometimes this can totally do the trick.
MY CURRENT FAVORITES
If you find the right one, you can pair with your favorite cologne, or just got at it alone and wait for the heads to turn. Shop my picks for some of the best men’s body sprays (so far) 2023.
1. Sauvage ‘Very Cool Spray’ by Dior
This body spray by Dior is super fresh, mixed with bergamot, zesty touches of Caribbean pepper, and subtle woody-notes. It’s perfect if you’re looking for a quick refresh to your day without smelling too much like a cologne, but enough to catch their attention.
2. Tom Ford F**king Fabulous
This is definitely a top choice when you’re ready to spurge and treat yourself. New from Tom Ford, this one is a perfectly scented leather body spray that is both masculine, fresh, and calming.
3. Colonia Intensia Deodorant Body Spray by Acqua di Parma
Inspired and created in Italy, this chic deodorant body spray is masculine enough so it doesn’t smell like you borrowed something from your wife, but still has uniquely fresh notes of bergamot, lemon, bitter orange, sweet orange, English lavender, Bulgarian rose, verbena, cedarwood, patchouli, sandalwood, and more. It’s really a perfect mix and adds a great finishing touch before you head out for the day.
BEST DESIGNER PICK
4. Tom Ford’s ‘All Over’ Body Spray
Don’t be afraid to spray this one (almost) anywhere on your body. It’s pretty intoxicating, in a good way. The fresh scent of Neroli Portofino is expertly blended of crisp citrus oils with surprising floral notes and amber undertones. Light and airy, we’re obsessed with this spray!
THE FRESH PICK
5. Homme Men’s Deodorant Spray by Dior
We’ve added this to our list because of the unique spin Dior took on this body spray/deodorant combo. It has underlying notes of subtle ginger which, surprisingly, keeps you smelling fresh without being overpowering. It’s subtle enough that you could pair with your favorite cologne (test it out first!).
TRIED AND TRUE PICK
6. Polo Black Deodorant/Body Spray by Ralph Lauren
Just as good as the cologne, but not as strong. They’ve infused iced mango, silver armoise, and patchouli noir for the perfect blend of refreshing scents. And you really can’t beat the price on this one too!
BEST BUDGET PICK
7. Tommy Bahama ‘St. Barts’ Men’s Body Spray
Perfect for when you’re dreaming of being on vacation (like, all the time). It blends exotic sea vine, guava nectar and blue agave tequila. Mmm tequila! Plus, how can you beat this price – especially when it comes to designer brands?!
