“If you remember me, then I don’t care if everyone else forgets.”

                                        Haruki Murakami

Love is in the air and Valentine’s day is here, the time of year when people declare their love or renew vows with that special someone. Love expressed as romantic feeling transcends beyond religion, skin colour, borders, and age too, in fact it is one of the most intriguing virtues whose definition varies from person to person, for example, the way a teenager defines and feels love can be completely different from how it is expressed between two adults. One common thing during Valentine’s day across all age groups is that people exchange gifts, however even in that too depending on age group, the type of gifts vary. I have seen people going great lengths from gifting roses, bouquets, greeting cards, romantic dinners, staycations, to what not, I have witnessed people sharing love letters written in one’s own blood! Something that I would solemnly abstain from doing nor recommend. If you are one of those who have given Valentine’s day gift you will know by now how daunting a task it is to choose one and if you are in your teens, I can fathom the quantum of effort that you must be putting through in planning what to gift this Valentine’s day. Things can get more complicated if you are hitting middle age and if you are gifting a man who is around that age, cos both of you are weighed down by a looming midlife crisis and would love to pep up the lacklustre love in your life but do not know where to begin. So here is my recommendation this Valentine’s day, gift your man a nice, exquisite Perfume, trust me, I am a man, and it is one of the best gift that I still look forward during Valentine’s day. Here are the top 5 men’s perfume that I love and would recommend you try for your man.

    It is so relatable. My childhood memories about scent is also dads old spice and musk. Even now if that scent is in the air anywhere I can only think of a freshly shaved and showered dad.

      Glad you could bring back those memories. The old spice after shave was so popular those days, especially because of the TV commercial.
