Jean Paul gaultier ultra male
Jean-Paul Gaultier ultra male is one of the best perfumes for men in winter. There are two best perfumes that I love for winter one is Jean-Paul Gaultier’s ultra male and the other one is spice bomb extreme which I have already discussed. Well, it is not on the list because it is my favorite, it is here because Jean Paul Gaultier’s ultra male has excellent projection along with the seductive smell.
Jean-Paul ultra male is recognized as a panty dropper. It is a nightclub fragrance that is sweet, dark, and warm. It is unique and different from the spice bomb. The spice bomb is a little bit spicy whereas the ultra male is a sweet scent.
This a great perfume for anybody who is above 20. It has a great projection. You will get noticed no matter what with this. Not only that, you will surely get compliments with this perfume as it is one of those perfumes which are loved by 99 percent of people.
The longevity of this perfume is also great, you can expect it to remain on you for 10 hours straight until it fades away.
Jean-Paul Gaultier ultra male is a must-have fragrance in any man’s wardrobe who loves to attract the attention of ladies.
For winter you can either go with ultra-male or with spice bomb, both are great options in terms of appeal, projection, performance, and smell.

Dior Sauvage elixir
Dior Sauvage elixir is a new fragrance in the house of Dior. After Dior Sauvage, the elixir has become a talk in the fragrance community as people loved it because of its performance.
If we talk about projection then it is one of the best out there. With only 4 or 5 sprays on you, you are set to attract the sense of people around you. It is a spicy, fresh, and warm fragrance with a masculine touch to it.
The projection and longevity of this perfume are so good that you will get noticed when you walk into the room for sure. It can last up to 14 hours straight and projects well.
So, if you are looking for a blind buy then I suggest Dior elixir. It has all ticks checked as a fragrance.
The best thing about elixir is that it smells so great in the air that other people, who smell it from a distance, are going to like it more than you do. The air presence of this Dior edition is better than any other Dior edition.
This perfume is so versatile that you can wear it to clubs at night, and in all seasons. You can get a bottle of elixir for around $160. This is a mature fragrance but also has a modern touch to it. So if you are above 23 years of age, you are going to love it.

YSL (yves saint laurent y )
Without a doubt, YSL is one of the best-smelling and projecting perfumes in the market. It is famous for its projection and performance along with its freshness.
One man said that people from mars can smell it when he wears this perfume. So make sure you use fewer sprays of it on you.
If we talk about the smell of the fragrance, then you get a fresh smell at the start, all because of the bergamot kick in the top notes.
The mixture of bergamot is so perfect that you are going to love the smell instantly when you spray it on you, it feels so fresh.
As you let it dry down for one hour, you smell the prominent mid notes which are Saige and aquatic notes.
As it is a blue fragrance, you’re going to sense the same freshness from the point you spray it until it dries.
Ysl is a straight-out competitor of Dior sausage and blue de Chanel, but what is best about this is that it projects more from all of them.
This is a perfect perfume for summer and fall, however, I don’t recommend this for winter as it is a citrus and aromatic perfume which performs better in hot weather.
Another best thing about YSL y is that, though it is a beast mode fragrance still it doesn’t offend your nose or anyone around you. In short, it is a mass-pleaser.
You can get a 100 ml bottle of YSL y around $99. This bottle will last you longer than other blue fragrances because 4 sprays of it are more than enough for a day.
Before you buy YSL y, I want you to know that the EDP version is what you should be looking for. The EDT version of YSL y is weaker in terms of projection and also lighter than the EDP version. The EDP version is for sure a beast mode Cologne.

Mancera red tobacco
Red Tobacco by Mancera is an absolute beast when it comes to performance and projection.
It is well known for this trait in the fragrance industry. Though there are fewer people out of industry who are aware of this beast.
In the beginning, this is a pretty strong scent. But after 30 minutes, you will sense the real smell of it. About an hour later you will also see the vanilla playing its role. As it dries down you get a smoky smell.
The smell of this fragrance transforms with time. At first, you might feel it is too strong but as you let it drown it gets sweet because vanilla and tobacco kick in with an oud underneath them.
There is amber also which adds a warmth to it along with incense which makes it shine as a smoky fragrance on the dry down.
This could be a great choice for fall and winter. It is highly masculine and can easily give you 12 hours of longevity with 4 or 5 sprays.

Haltane parfums de marly review
Haltane may be one of the top perfumes out there that projects excellent, I mean it projects too well. If you are looking for the perfume that projects the most then haltane parfums de marly might be that option for you.
It has a few aquatic notes at the beginning, with a mix of spices. If you want to know how it smells then in simple words it smells like a mixture of spice, freshness, and woodiness.
Of course, it is dark and sweet at the same time in the base. If I have to explain the structure of how it smells from start to end, then it is sweet on the first layer, underneath it you get a blast of warm spices, and lastly, you have woodiness.
Overall, this perfume is sweet but as sweet as Jean Paul Gaultier’s ultra male.
If you are not sure about this perfume as it is a niche perfume then I suggest going with Dior elixir, spice bomb, and Jean-Paul Gaultier ultra male.
These fragrances are blind buy and will project excellent, and you do get noticed for sure.
But if you want to try something different and unique then I will recommend this perfume, which will cost you around $295.
You can wear this in fall and winter. You can also wear this in summer but for that, you need to wear it in the evening if you really want to pull it off.
