When you think of summer you might think of fun in the sun, cookouts, swimming and more. Or, a time where people let loose, get wild, and show people who they really are by expressing themselves. That means this is a good time for you to make a statement with your summer cologne choice. ChicagoMOD has rounded up five summer scents for men that will make a lasting impression.
Les Exclusifs De Chanel Boy Chanel, one of Chanel’s newest fragrances, is a treasure to have. This scent is soft, yet vibrant, with a vigorous romantic smell that any man can wear. Though the scent is a masculine one, fresh hints of lavender, rose geranium, lemon, vanilla, and musk are soft enough to make it sweet. Available at Chanel, 935 N. Michigan Ave., 312-787-5500, chanel.com, $350
