For men, one of the best ways to boost your confidence is to choose the perfect body spray that defines you. Body sprays are much lighter than perfumes, which is why they are a great alternative for those hot and humid days. They can keep you smelling good all day without the heavy oils associated with perfumes.
This article aims to help you narrow down your options with a buying guide reviewed by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Katrina Habaluyas Luz. We've also curated a list of some of the best body sprays available in the Philippines will be provided in the article, so read on and find your new favorite scent!
Since there are a lot of scent profiles available for body sprays, it is natural to get overwhelmed. Choosing based on scent is one of the biggest factors when you buy a body spray. To find the perfect scent, try spraying a little on your wrists and rubbing it to dissect the scent. They are usually divided into 4 categories with different profiles.
We often correlate flowers and fruits with women's scents, however, there are masculine-smelling floral scents as well. A flower that emits such a smell is gardenia which has a light and friendly aroma that is not too overpowering. Some berries also fall in this category which give off a refreshing and relaxing scent.
Choosing a scent is a very personal one. It also is a bit more challenging for men particularly because some scents (e.g. floral scents) are more associated with women or as being more feminine. When it comes to finding the right one - start off with notes like the ones you love in your other products from your day-to-day experiences.
The weather in the Philippines is hot and humid. Having a fresh and clean smelling body spray will keep the smoke and sweat smell at bay. This scent will make people think you’ve just come out of the shower even after the long commute.
Using this after a gym should work great to mask your sweat after an intense workout. Most scents in this category often come with a citrus scent such as orange, lemon, grapefruit, and more.
Tip: Fresh and clean scents can work for men, especially after strenuous activities and/or activities that cause increased sweating. This is a temporary fix especially if you're unable to shower immediately after.
Powerful, musky scents often evoke masculinity and are classic scents that never go out of style. These scents are best paired with evening wear, whether you're attending a simple gathering or a special occasion.
The aroma profile involves heavier scents hailing from cinnamon and spices with the musk as the main component, which is derived from the glandular secretions of animals. Due to the origins of the ingredients, this type of scent is memorable and lasts long.
In general, musky scents have been associated with masculinity. While it is a popular choice amongst men, make sure to try it out if it fits your personality too!
A middle ground between fresh and flowery scents, woodsy scents offer versatility to anyone who uses it. Due to this quality, a body spray with this profile can be used for a myriad of occasions such as an evening gala, a night out with friends, or a date. As the name implies, its aroma is derived from woody plants such as sandalwood, cedarwood, and tea tree.
When it comes to choosing the scent, make sure to patch test too! Remember, one of the more common causes of allergic reactions is fragrance.
The strength of the scent is determined by the application. The more you apply, the stronger the scent will be. Depending on the origin of the scent, some are naturally strong even if you apply little of the body spray.
Also, depending on your preference, it is important to choose a body spray that has a nice balance between strength and scent. You may ask a few people around your circle if the smell is too strong as they can give you honest feedback on what will work for you.
However, note that the scent profile of the body spray may vary from one person to another. That's because the ingredients react differently with each person, which then produces a different scent profile, so one man’s body spray may not work for the other.
Various factors, including sex can influence the type of odor that an individual emits - and typically body odor tends to be more pungent amongst males. Thus, best to select a scent based on your personal needs.
Smelling good shouldn’t be about just that. It should also last a while to prevent those dyahe moments. Therefore, a good body spray should last throughout the day with minimal reapplication. It should also maintain the aroma profile and remain consistent, or even if it changes, it should still help you smell amazing.
Make sure to try out that body spray so you can feel out how long it lasts! Then you can tailor it to your day-to-day activities.
As mentioned in the previous section, the variety of aroma profiles matches different scenarios where you can use it. One scent may not work with a certain setting, so it is best to know which body spray works best for each occasion. Matching the scent with the event also maximizes the body spray’s effect, giving you more confidence.
Adapt your choice of scent to the occasion as well as to the activity. Remember, you not only want to match the scent to the particular setting, but you want it to last too!
Body spray and deodorant are usually mistaken for each other. A deodorant helps eliminate body odor while a body spray adds fragrance to your body. If you're someone who sweats a lot, you can benefit from a 2-in-1 deodorant and body spray.
Also, if you commute or go to the gym often, having deodorant qualities in your body spray can help remove bad odors while keeping you fresh. Thus, you wouldn't have to worry about the scent of your body spray and deodorant clashing.
Choose a deodorant with antiperspirant ingredients as well. Did you know that if you control sweating, this can help keep body odor at bay?
Compared to fragrances and perfumes, body sprays aren’t as expensive as they contain fewer oils and rare ingredients typically found on some high-end products. However, if they're priced higher, check if it is worth it based on the duration of smell or rarity of the scent. If not, you may be paying extra for the brand and luxury appeal.
Read the ingredients list to make sure you're getting your money's worth. Also, it pays to get from reputable brands.

Below are some of the most asked questions on the web answered by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Katrina Habaluyas Luz!
It is best to spray body spray on the body rather than the clothes. When spraying, best to hold the spray at a distance (~6 inches away from the body).
Best to avoid spraying body spray to the groin area as this area is not only sensitive but also occluded (meaning, it's more prone to accumulation of moisture and consequently has an increased risk for irritation!).
Avoid applying body spray onto your hair as some body sprays contain a percent of alcohol which can be drying to those locks.
