Etro ManRose fragrance, €147.50
Etro revisits the tradition of single-essence fragrance with its new ManRose perfume. The fragrance refutes the notion that rose is a women’s scent, defining intense Turkish rose notes with a heady mix of cardamom, Sichuan pepper, vetiver, ember and leather. Defying conventions, this rose scent is unexpected and modern, and it offers a synthesis of perfection.
Frédéric Malle Outrageous, 100ml, €150
Sophia Grojsman’s gender-neutral fragrance Outrageous has been created in collaboration with Frédéric Malle and is released as part of his perfume range. Inspired by the caipirinha cocktail from Brazil, the fragrance is a vibrant mix of bergamot, tangerine and green apple against a warm backdrop of cinnamon, musk and ambroxan. Perfect for the warmer months, it is a colourful, vibrant scent with what Frédéric Malle describes as ‘clean sex appeal’.
Gucci Guilty Absolute, price on request
Designed for the man who defines his own masculinity, Gucci’s Guilty Absolute is a liberating and compelling scent. A collaboration between Gucci’s master perfumer Alberto Morillas and the brand’s creative director Alessandro Michele, the fragrance carefully combines ingredients to reflect the codes of the house. Leather is the leading note, in homage to the ultimate Gucci material, while goldenwood, a new natural extract of nootka cypress, adds an ultra-dry note that gives the scent depth and complexity. With additional aromas of patchouli oil and vetiver, the fragrance is an interesting revival of traditional woody scents.
Joop Wow eau de toilette, 40ml, €43
This spring, Joop has extended its fragrance line with a fresh, woody offering. Embodying the vibrant personality of the Joop man, Wow has top notes of bergamot, cardamom and violet leaf. Spicy and elegant, it has a rich base from the tonka bean, which is complemented by warm, feminine vanilla to create a hypnotic blend.
Jimmy Choo Man Ice eau de toilette, 50ml, €57
Jimmy Choo’s Man fragrance line gets a new addition this spring with Ice. Encapsulating the effortless attitude and confidence of the Jimmy Choo man, this is a fresh, clean scent ideal for spring. The aromatic woody fragrance offers top notes of mandarin, bergamot and cedar essence against a base of vetiver, patchouli essence and apple.
Davidoff Amber Blend eau de parfum, 100ml, €95
The Davidoff Blend collection gains a new fragrance this month. The range celebrates high-quality ingredients: the first in the line was leather, the second agar. Amber is the third. This is an oriental, spicy scent with warm and sensual mix of cinnamon and nutmeg as well as amber and succan absolute ‒ a purified rum extract. The perfume is heady, intense and a vibrant expression of masculinity.
