The Best Body Wash for Men to Smell Amazing

Smelling great and feeling great go hand in hand. And your quest to smell amazing begins in the bathroom. Using a fragranced shower gel in the bath or shower is the best way to begin your day and smell astonishingly superior.

How we smell to others could have a lasting impression, just as a polished suit or a chic haircut might. Finding the ideal fragrance that not only washes but also suits your personality is important to us at Cremo.

In this article, we take a deep dive into the best Cremo scents to enjoy for everyone, from the masculine body washes to the soft, more zesty scents. We explain the notes and aromas of each scent, so you can make a fully informed decision on which body wash is the one for you or for a special gift. We also investigate the Cremo alluring fragrances, energising formulas, and grooming advice.

What should I avoid in a body wash?

Before you choose the right body wash – you need to know what you shouldn’t be taking into the shower with you. Some body wash may not be suitable if you have particularly sensitive or dry skin. Ensure the body wash you choose is moisturising and suitable for sensitive skin if this applies to you.

Why we use body wash

Using body wash daily has some serious benefits. It’s super easy to integrate into a part of your skincare and cleansing routine. It actually acts as a form of aromatherapy, meaning we can use body wash to enhance and uplift our mood. This is because of the spa-like smells we enjoy while using body wash.

But, the main reason for using a body wash is to be thoroughly clean for the day. We recommend using Cremo body wash once a day – it will add hydration and keep your skin moisturised. Use it as part of your full morning routine and reap the rewards.

Now, let's get into the best smelling body washes available…

What is a masculine scent?

Naturally, defining a masculine scent depends on a few key factors. A masculine scent is thought to be a smell particularly liked by men and usually involves layers of spice, leather, tobacco, and often, wood. Some masculine scents may have aquatic or marine elements, like oceanic notes, to provide a fresh and clean aroma.

Strong, spicy, and rich. These are just a few of the words we’d use to describe the Cremo Bourbon & Oak Body Wash. It deeply cleanses the skin and leaves you feeling moisturised. We recommend this body wash for a man who prefers a more ‘masculine’ scent as it has very deep notes of smoked bourbon – but not too much! Don’t worry, you won’t smell like you’ve been wrestling with a bottle of bourbon. Imagine more of a smokey and inviting scent.

What makes a zesty scent?

The foundation of a zesty fragrance is citrus notes. Scents are often referred to as ‘zesty’ when they include citrus fruits, such as lime or lemon. Zesty scents evoke a sense of brightness and freshness. They often have an uplifting quality that is thought to boost moods and energy levels. Other scents that leave a zesty finish often include herbal elements such as green tea and mint.

You’ve guessed it, we’ve got the best zesty fragranced body wash. The Sage & Citrus Body Wash is a perfect balance of fresh mandarin notes with an undertone of herbs. It’s one of our all-year-round usage body washes. It helps protect your skin's natural moisture barrier against nature’s elements.
