Best Man Fragrance

You've heard that French perfume is the best man fragrance in the world, including makers like Chanel, Cartier, and Dior.

Part of it is the long history of French perfume. French perfume was first made in the medievel town of Grasse in the south of France, often called the perfume capital of the world. Today, Grasse boasts all four leading French perfumeries ' Moulimard, Mane, Galimard, and Fragonard. Because so many of the best perfumeries are here, the best of all the perfume developers are also here.

Another reason is that quality is a matter of pride to the French perfume makers. Traditional methods for making perfume are still used alongside modern methods. Flowers used in French perfume fragrances are often grown on local farms, guaranteeing the freshest materials will be used in the manufacturing. For instance, French perfume manufacturer Chanel uses fifty tons of roses du mai and twenty tons of jasmine annually from just one farm in the region; the jasmine is hand-picked and the roses arrive at the plant within thirty minutes of being picked.

There is no denying that part of the reputation of French perfume is due to the mystique ' French perfume has been known as a luxury item for hundreds of years. But part of it is that French perfume really is better. It is made from premium ingredients, by people who have been making and testing fragrances for many years. Methods for producing both perfumes and perfume ingredients have been passed down in local families for centuries. And because people are willing to pay premium prices for French perfume, there is no pressure to cut costs by skimping on ingredients, manpower, or methods.

In short, if you want to spoil yourself or the woman you love, French perfume is a wonderful way to do it. (And guys, if you really want to impress her, memorize some of this information to show her you really thought about the gift!)
