If he favours... Floral Notes
Look for a multi-layered fragrance; rich bouquets can be masculine too, especially when paired with a hint of exotic spicing. Individualists may prefer the intriguing balance provided by deeper notes of tobacco, leather or resin. Try Geranium Pour Monsieur by Frederic Malle for a fresh alternative, lifted with mint and exotic incense.
If he favours... Woody Notes
Opt for the earthy rawness of one of our more intoxicating blends. Extra intensity can be found in oud and sandalwood while cedar and eucalyptus are preferable for a cleaner finish. If in doubt, Comme des Garçons’ iconic Wonderwood is hard to beat for its overtly woody nature.
If he favours... Spicy/Oriental Notes
Think warm, complex layering and heady floral blends. Capturing the essence of Marrakech, Serge Lutens’ Ambre Sultan focuses on spiced amber resin and patchouli, softened with an unexpected touch of vanilla – deeply evocative and utterly arresting.
If he favours... Fruit/Citrus Notes
A refreshing yet distinctive blend is the answer. Bergamot orange and neroli are key ingredients for a rounded, aromatic note, tempering the more astringent qualities of a zesty scent. Clean and sophisticated, Acqua Di Parma Colonia Intensia is a classic – complex, vibrant but never overwhelming.
