Hot New Fragrances For Summer
It goes without saying that most people want to feel good about themselves, but whether you prefer the latest fashions or a more unique style, one thing remains; nobody wants to smell like John Prescott in a heatwave! Summer is surely the best season to get out and about socializing and having fun so we’ve taken a small team to test a load of fragrances to bring you the hottest and freshest man smells this Summer (nice man smells, not the bad ones). We needed a team of noses as we can only process so many smells in quick succession before the nose goes blind (or some such explanation) and we’ve come out victorious, creating this splendid list of favourites to keep you smelling AWESOME this Summer.
Montblanc Emblem Intense – This fragrance is a fantastic mix of citrus, spices and refreshing grapefruit, with a smattering of cardamon and coriander. The middle notes are intense spicy notes of nutmeg and cinnamon mixed with sweet violet and the base notes are woods and patchouli which make it a very intense and masculine fragrance. It costs around £45.00 for a 60ml EDT and £65.00 for 100ml EDT.
Dolce & Gabbana Swimming in Lipari – Lipari is the largest of the Aeolian Islands, off the coast of Sicily, and the Islands beauty has inspired this limited edition fragrance from Dolce & Gabbana. At first sniff this fragrance is very fresh with notes of sea salt and grapefruit, then it sweetens a little with mandarin and rosemary and the amazing scent is completed with masculine base notes of ambergris, wood and musk. We love it! It costs around £47.00 for a 75ml EDT and £64.00 for 125ml EDT.
Givenchy Gentlemen Only Casual Chic – Whilst remaining true to the original Gentlemen Only, this new Eau de Toilette is more lively, refreshing, zesty and spicy. It is a mix of cardamon, ginger and juniper which produce a wood spicy fresh fragrance that successfully blends freshness and character while being very comforting. It costs around £45.50 for a 50ml EDT and £63.00 for 100ml EDT.
Eau de Cartier Vétiver Bleu – This is a unisex fragrance for both male and females and is simply pure freshness that feels like a chill to wear! Costs are around £64.00 for a 100ml EDT.
Dunhill Icon – This fragrance claims it is for the masculine and sophisticated gentleman! It is an aromatic-woody scent which starts with fresh notes, then moves into more spicy notes of black pepper, lavender and cardamom and ends with base notes of wood, leather and oak moss. It is around £55.00 for a 50ml EDT and £73.00 for 100ml EDT.
