The perfume and fragrance market is hot, hot, hot! Women’s designer fragrances are very popular and women seem to love them so much that they will spend an inordinate amount of money on them. Men, it also seems are not far behind, with the men’s designer cologne market growing bigger and bigger each and every year and with hot fashion designers, such as Armani, Ralph Lauren, Azarro, Davidoff, Hugo Boss and many others creating sexy, masculine concoctions that will please men of all ages and personalities.
