The Best 12 Cinnamon Scented Perfumes and Colognes You’ll Fall in Love

Hi all! Today we are going to find out, what is the best cinnamon perfume or cinnamon cologne (yes, perfume and cologne, aka eau de perfume and eau de cologne aren’t the same). Speaking about the cinnamon note, it isn’t hard to find that today not so many fragrance contains this beautiful spicy note. But about 25-30 years ago was a time of the cinnamon (let’s say, a decade of the cinnamon) – you can find a lot of perfumes created in 90’s that contains this note. In this article, we are going through the list of the best unisex, male and female perfumes that smells like cinnamon.

The Best Unisex Cinnamon Perfumes and Colognes

As for me, the best unisex cinnamon perfumes are:

  1. Serge Lutens Rousse;
  2. Demeter Fragrance Cinnamon Bark and Cinnamon Bun.

Demeter Fragrance – Cinnamon Bark and Cinnamon Bun

Aren’t interested in the difficult and multifaceted perfume pyramides? Looking for a simple cinnamon scented perfume with no other notes? I recommend you to look at the Cinnamon Bark by Demeter Fragrance. The main and only note is a cinnamon.

What’s good: you don’t need to wait for the cinnamon scent. Like, literally – there’s no need to wait while you’ve got to the heart of the pyramid; no need to search the cinnamon note among other notes – you’ll see that this is cinnamon cologne right after the first applying.

What’s bad: it’s a flat and boring scent, IMO. You won’t be able to enjoy the perfume composition, when all the notes mixing, blend into each other, and complement each other, creating the work of art. Moreover, sillage and longevity of the Cinnamon Bark are very weak. So… It’s a good air freshener, but I can’t name it as the best of the best cinnamon perfume.

P.S.: if you’re looking for the more interesting composition (for example, cinnamon bun perfume), you can go for the Demeter Fragrance Cinnamon Bun. There are milk, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and wheat notes, which are creating really dilicious perfume.

The Best 4 Cinnamon Perfume and Cologne for Women

If you’re looking for the best cinnamon perfume for women, I recommend to take a look at the next:

  1. Dior Poison;
  2. Montale Vanille Absolu;
  3. Givenchy Organza Indecence;
  4. Dior Dolce Vita.

Dior Poison

Straight from the 1985, this perfume won the hearts of million women around the world. And there’s nothing strange – this legendary perfume has perfect composition of plum, tuberose, incense, honey, cinnamon, white pepper, and vanilla notes (and that’s not all – there are 10+ notes in composition).

What’s good: ethernal longevity and sillage – Poison will lasts for hours and days on your skin and clothing. Perfect price tag for the quality, very feminine and attractive, sexual for the men around.

What’s bad: looks quite weird on young woman, perfectly fits for women 30+ y.o.

Montale Vanille Absolu

I can’t name it as a mono-scent, but there are no so many notes like in the Dior Poison. Still, it’s a decent perfume with a vanille and cinnamon scent, created by Pierre Montale in 2008.

What’s good: one of the best vanilla notes you can find in fragrance – not too sugary, but slightly tart and spicey. Also, very seductive and sexy perfume, that will has a good fit for all women.

What’s bad: sometimes looks flat and boring.

Givenchy Organza Indecence

Warm spicey, cinnamon, vanilla and amber perfume, created in 1999. As many other cinnamon scented perfume, contains traditional pyramid of plum, vanilla, amber and patchouli. Very sensual, sexual, romantic, and even mystical perfume.

What’s good: well-created and decent cinnamon perfume.

What’s bad: doesn’t fit at all for younger women. Moreover, it will smells vulgar and dirty on 20-25 y.o. girl. Perfect for 30 y.o.+ women only.

Dior Dolce Vita

Woody, warm spicy, powdery and cinnamon perfume, created in 1994. Perfectly fits for winter and fall, both for evening and day usage. The most hearable notes are cinnamon, peach, vanilla, sandalwood, apricot and cardamom.

What’s good: perfect longevity and sillage (7-12 hours and up to 6 ft), decent price, outstanding pyramide.

What’s bad: it’s difficult to separate the notes, so if you’re looking for the strong and clear cinnamon note – this is not for you. Also, strong fruity notes may be too sweet for some women.

The Best 4 Cinnamon Perfume and Cologne for Men

Speaking about the best cinnamon scented perfume for men, you’re probably fall in love with the next fragrance:

  1. Victor&Rolf Spicebomb;
  2. 1 Million (and 1 Million Prive) Paco Rabbane;
  3. Tone Indeterminee Zara;
  4. Boss Bottled by Hugo Boss.

Victor&Rolf Spicebomb

Warm, spicey and woody scent, created in 2012 by Olivier Polge, famous perfumer. This fragrance is perfect for cold weather, so you’d probably find it unforgettable in winter and fall nights.

The most hearable notes of the perfume is cinnamon, red pepper, tobacco, leather, safran and paprika.

What’s good: outstanding longevity (7-12 hrs) and sillage (up to 6 ft). You can easily name it as the women killer – personally I didn’t found any girl who don’t love it. Perfect, original and coherent perfume. As for me, the Spicebomb is a drop-dead pick for 30 y.o.+ men, but it don’t smells too “manly”, in a good sense.

What’s bad: didn’t found anything bad.

1 Million and 1 Million Prive Paco Rabbane

Created in 2008 (1 Million Prive in 2016), 1 Million by Paco Rabbane became super-popular and mindblowing trend. During a few years after, you can found it almost EVERYWHERE. Even today, you can catch the sillage in the crowd – but does it tells that this is a bad perfume? No! Popularity of this perfume just says that it fits almost for everyone and for any occasion.

The most hearable notes are cinnamon (both fragrance), amber, leather and rose (1 Million), and tobacco, myrrh and tonka beans (1 Million Prive).

What’s good: perfect longevity and sillage – anyone can said otherwise. Perfect composition for winter and fall evenings, can literally warm you up. Also, composition of spices, cinnamon, and patchouli is literally unforgettable, so if you decided to test it, be sure that you’re never confused with other perfumes or colognes. At least, 1 Million fits for everyone, whether you’re 20 y.o. or 45 y.o. man, computer engineer or salesman, CEO or entry-level specialist.

What’s bad: as I wrote before, about 7-9 years ago this perfume was very trendy. So… almost everyone was covered by 1 Million. So here’s just one thing I find bad: today it’s a bit… Annoying. Also, don’t make more than 1-2 spritz, otherwise this perfume will choke every person in 10 feets around.

Tone Indeterminee Zara

Again, it’s all about cinnamon and tobacco. But don’t be confused by the manufacturer. I don’t like when clothing brands are trying to get into perfume world (most of such attemps are failed, to be honest), but again… This time Zara created something that can compete with recognized fragrance brands.

What’s good: very sensual, lasts for 6+ hours, very creamy and cozy – perfect balance of masculine and gourmands notes. Also, unbelievable price tag for the quality.

What’s bad: didn’t found anything.

Boss Bottled by Hugo Boss

Are you looking for the cinnamon vanilla perfume, or apple cinnamon perfume? Don’t struggle in decision, here is cinnamon-apple-vanilla perfume! Yes, the most popular notes in Boss Bottled, created in 1998, are cinnamon, apple and vanilla.

What’s good: another women killer – I’ve talked a lot about how it smells, and 8 out of 10 women found it sexy, attractive, noble. Perfectly fits for young guys and older men. You can wear it literally everywhere and for any occasion, from the first dating to office work. Moreover, you can wear Boss Bottled on fall, spring and winter.

What’s bad: didn’t found anything.
