Armani Code Profumo
Launched earlier this year, Armani Code Profumo is a personal favourite, not just because of its strong presence, but because of the fragrance’s versatility. It has just enough intensity for a black-tie event but is also casual enough to wear to the office or any other gathering. Either way, you’re sure to make an impression. The spicy composition opens with top notes of green apple and cardamom. The middle notes are made up of lavender and nutmeg, and the scent closes on base notes of tonic bean and amber.
Versace Dylan Blue
Versace launched the Dylan Blue Pour Homme mid-2016, and it’s an aromatic woody fragrance with unmissable aquatic notes filled with festive freshness. It’s the perfect scent for sunny days on or by the beach. It opens with top notes of grapefruit, fig leaves and bergamot, and leads into middle notes of black pepper and papyrus wood. The composition is wrapped up with notes of incense, saffron and tonic bean.
Givenchy Gentlemen Only Absolute
Also released in 2016, Gentlemen Only Absolute is part of the Gentlemen Only fragrances that have been made since 1974. It epitomises the scent that a modern gentleman should leave behind. The fragrance opens with intense notes of bergamot followed by middle notes of spices such as nutmeg and saffron, and wraps with the sweet scent of vanilla. True to its legacy, this is another classic in the making.
Oscar de la Renta Gentleman
True to the Oscar de la Renta brand, this fragrance is daring, bold and will not go unnoticed. The fragrance opens with subtle notes of bergamot and grapefruit. At its heart, the scent has notes of rosemary and geranium. It closes with bold, intense notes of labdanum, vetiver and amber.
