At Don Juan Pomade, we talk a lot about what our various pomade formulas can do for your hair. With their all-natural formulas and thoughtfully sourced ingredients, they can offer the perfect hold, shine level, and nourishment for any hair type.
For this article, we will focus on a different aspect of pomades- scents. All of our haircare products are scented with natural essential oils. These are non-irritating to the scalp and packed with nourishing compounds. Still, the scent that you choose can, in fact, say a lot about who you are, or at the very least, what kind of image you’re trying to convey to the world.
Citrusy scents like orange, lemon, and lime do wonders for lifting our mood. How? Their cheery, zesty aromas instantly make us feel energized, upbeat, and generally happy. Therefore, guys who gravitate toward citrus fragrances tend to be eternal optimists who look on the bright side of things.
Spicy scents, like clove, black pepper, and ginger, tend to evoke feelings of mystery and exoticism. A guy who loves spicy scents likely enjoys maintaining an air of intrigue. They may even like keeping most people at arm’s length rather than bearing his soul. These scents are intoxicating and sophisticated, but not as cuddle-friendly as fresher fragrances.
Fragrances that are woodsy, like cedar, oak, and pine, are typically preferred by guys who consider the great outdoors to be their home. These woodsy scents are comforting to men who enjoy hiking, lumber work, and camping. So, woodsy aromas are typically associated with men who are self-sufficient and capable of enduring all of the surprises that the outdoors entails.
Herbal Scents: Clean and Unfussy
Herbal aromas like lavender, mint, and rosemary are clean, fresh, and unfussy. There is a reason why colognes belonging to the “fresh” category outperform others on the market. A man who reaches for an herbal-scented pomade likes to give off an image of taking his hygiene seriously. Not only that, but also doesn’t necessarily need a more decadent fragrance to show off. Usually, he’s unpretentious, easygoing, and low-maintenance.
Sweeter fragrances, like one that incorporate notes of vanilla or rum, are great for guys who appreciate the finer things in life. These almost gourmet fragrances are associated with class, luxury, and decadence. Not to mention wealth and power. A man who smells sweet likes to pay top dollar to ensure that he has the very best of everything.
Beachy scents that remind us of the ocean waves are beloved by guys with a playful nature, who still look forward to visiting the shore each year just like they did when they were little. Evoking images of surfing and volleyball, beachy fragrances make us feel giddy that summer is just around the corner.
Go with your instincts and consider which category will best suit your personality. Ultimately, they all smell good in their own way, and will please you just as much as everyone around you.
