WHAT'S IN THE BOX

Cartier

L'Envol

L'Envol

L'Envol

1.5ml eau de toilette

FAMILY: ORIENTAL
TOP NOTES: honey accord
HEART NOTES: musk
BASE NOTES: guaiac wood, patchouli

This is an Oriental fragrance like no other – imagine sunshine diffused through golden droplets of amber, a canopy of forest trees swooped on from a bird’s-eye view. There’s resinous, woody depth, of course – but it’s borne aloft by citrus rays of light piercing the temperate mistiness of a mossy, woodland idyll.

Finding one’s wings anew, giving flight to your inner strengths, creativity and confidence are the inspirational sensations evoked with Cartier’s luminous new scent – and we believe when you find the right fragrance, that’s what each whiff should do for you.

From transparent whispers of honeyed warmth to swathes of freshness, the whole composition is harmoniously balanced yet excitingly new. (NB Cartier L’Envol eau de parfum won a coveted Fragrance Foundation Award in 2017 – and this eau de toilette follow-up has been awaited with great anticipation.) X

Vince Camuto Homme

1.5ml eau de toilette

FAMILY: FRESH
TOP NOTES: pressed citron, ozone, iced gin & tonic
HEART NOTES: Italian fennel, blue cypress, juniper, French lavender
BASE NOTES: spruce, armoise, musk, Atlas cedar, white birch

Fancy a freshly poured gin & tonic on the rocks while gazing at the brilliant blue sea of the Mediterranean, anyone…? Form an orderly queue, then, for the fizzing freshness of pressed citron and juniper-rich notes from the first spray of this revivifying holiday-in-a-bottle. Italian fennel, blue cypress and balmy lavender soothe the nerves while a shady walk in the cool of the spruce trees will ease out those knots of stress from your shoulders like a massage for the senses… X

Missoni

Missoni Parfum Pour Homme

Missoni Parfum Pour Homme

Missoni Parfum Pour Homme

5ml eau de parfum

FAMILY: FOUGÈRE
TOP NOTES: green lemon leaves, lemon pulp, pink pomelo, lavender
HEART NOTES: Mediterranean herbs, ginger, pomarose, jasmine
BASE NOTES: patchouli, sandalwood, oakwood, birch, musk

This is the first male fragrance from Missoni for some decades – and oh, it was worth the wait! Head-clearing green notes of lemon leaves and pomelo dress up the classic fougère note of lavender, with jasmine-garlanded herbs in the heart whisking us to the Mediterranean – and that sense of the mist that lingers just before the golden warmth of a perfect autumnal day. Our favourite stage of the fragrance’s development is hard to choose – but few will be able to resist the almost snuggly finale.

As cosy as wearing our partner’s favourite sweater, this is infinitely ‘shareable’. (And indeed, knitwear – so linked with Missoni’s signature – features strongly as an inspiration; the dry-down – which gives us smooth sandalwood melting into the musky woodieness of the base – was composed to be ‘as enveloping as a precious Missoni cardigan.’)

All in all, beautifully woven together – though we’d expect nothing less, from these Italian design maestros. X

Kenneth Cole

Mankind

Mankind

Mankind

1.5ml eau de toilette

FAMILY: WOODY
TOP NOTES: cardamom, tarragon, ginger, pineapple
HEART NOTES: cedarwood, vetiver, cinnamon
BASE NOTES: sandalwood, oakmoss, tonka bean, musk

Succulently juicy with fresh pineapple, the warming spice blend of ginger and cardamom adds a certain exoticism to the top notes, while tarragon envelops with a sophisticated air of darkly green intrigue. Ginger and cinnamon tingle vivaciously against the cooler breeze of vetiver in the heart, while the mossy, musky base is most definitely nuzzleable…

Developed by perfumer Claude Dir of France's MANE perfume house, the woody/musky Mankind marks a new direction for Kenneth Cole’s fragrances, aimed at modern men who balance a performance-driven work life with their more relaxed, down-time side. Indeed, Mr Cole himself – Chairman and CEO of Kenneth Cole Productions – agrees, explaining: ‘Mankind appeals to the guy who knows what he wants and expresses it daily through his actions, his style, and overall essence.’ X

Jovoy

Private Label

Private Label

Private Label

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY: ORIENTAL
TOP NOTES: papyrus, vetiver, leather
HEART NOTES: patchouli, sandalwood
BASE NOTES: labdanum, birch, cedar

Originally made for a private client who just happened to be an Arabian prince, this is a quintessential representation of the Oriental family – the fragrance opening like a wooden casket carrying a precious gift, wrapped in soft leather inside. Can Orientals be as romantic on a man? Oh yes they can, and this, by brilliant perfumer Cécile Zarokian, is one that will have all and sundry swooning when they smell it.

Jovoy founder François describes Private Label as ‘…my ideal Oriental scent. This is the archetypal parfum de sillage: it leaves a distinct trail while remaining consistent over time.’ Take time to appreciate this strong, masculine and evocatively complex scent. Warmed to perfection on your skin, worn with panache and the knowledge you smell irresistible… X

Jaguar

Black Chromite

Black Chromite

Black Chromite

1.8ml eau de toilette

FAMILY: ORIENTAL
TOP NOTES: mandarin orange, green apple, incense
HEART NOTES: patchouli, cedarwood
BASE NOTES: tonka bean absolute, ambroxan, praline

For Jaguar Classic Chromite, perfumer Michel Almairac was tasked with translating the exhilarating sensations of driving one of their ultra-classic and always-stylish cars into scent. So where did he begin? ‘To me, Jaguar represents great refinement and strong character’, he explains. The sparkling opening is ‘…like the wind blowing through an open car window’, says the perfumer – think a flash of just-peeled mandarin, the crisp tartness of green apple and a background of mineral-like incense to add mystery and sophistication to the journey.
The result? Power, purified. X

Ferrari

Man in Red

Man in Red

Man in Red

1.2ml eau de toilette

FAMILY: FOUGÈRE
TOP NOTES: bergamot, cardamom
HEART NOTES: golden plum, orange blossom, lavender
BASE NOTES: tonka bean, cedar, labdanum

We may associate the ‘Ferrari man’ with those sensual, thrill-seeking and charismatic types who thrive on lives filled with a seemingly constant rush of adrenaline – but Ferrari assure us that ‘…he is also a man of contrasts, underneath his athletic exterior lies a heart of gold.’ Certainly, with Ferrari Man in Red described as being inspired by a man who ‘lives his life intensely’, we’re intensely intrigued to get closer and smell more…

Whatever lies beneath, we’re certainly loving what wafts from atop – with a refreshing fruity opening spiced with shades of cardamom, and a heart of golden plum entwined with orange blossom and soothed by lavender. Comfortable and warm, the final trail had us hooked with almond-like toasty tonka beans melding into a base of cedar wood and gloriously rich labdanum. X

Dunhill

Dunhill Racing

Dunhill Racing

Dunhill Racing

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY: WOODY
TOP NOTES: bergamot, grapefruit, cardamom
HEART NOTES: orange blossom, lavender, black pepper
BASE NOTES: guaiac wood, vetiver, musk

From a style-led house such as Dunhill, you’d expect nothing less than class with no compromise – but here, the latest addition to the stunning Icon fragrance range steps it up a gear, adopting a British Racing Green livery for the (appropriately) iconic full-size flacon, which scooped a Fragrance Foundation Award for its design.

A nod to the heritage of fine gentlemen’s fragrances past can be found in the more traditional notes of citrus, lavender, pepper and musk – but it’s the juicy twist of grapefruit, heavenly waxiness of orange blossom and turbo-charged depth of guaiac wood that set this scent apart. X

Coach

Coach For Men

Coach For Men

Coach For Men

2ml eau de toilette

TOP NOTES: Nashi pear, bergamot, kumquat
HEART NOTES: cardamom, coriander, geranium
BASE NOTES: vetiver Haiti LMR, suede, ambergris

Thirst-quenchingly green at first, this composition by the talented duo of noses, Anne Flipo and Bruno Jovanovic, will certainly wake sluggish senses. The zippiness of its citrus enhanced further by an herbaceous waft of coriander on the sensuously floral breeze of geranium, all flecked with fragrant pods of cardamom. As the heart notes take hold, we’re whirled once again to another layer of intrigue, with the shady dryness of vetiver softly swaddled in elements of suede.

Coach is a brand with that kind of nonchalant, laid-back cool – dressed head-to-toe in their designer chic or with a simple spray of this fragrance: effortless style can be at your fingertips. X

Cristiano Ronaldo

CR7

CR7

CR7

2ml

FAMILY: Fougere
TOP NOTES: bergamot, artemisia, lavender, cardamom
HEART NOTES: cinnamon, cedarwood, iris, tobacco
BASE NOTES: sandalwood, vanilla, amber, musk

With the intriguing zesty green freshness of bergamot lavished with lavandin and sprinkled with spices, Christiano Ronaldo CR7 is smoothed seamlessly to a woody base of tobacco-infused muskiness. An easy to wear, go-to scent to spritz in the manner of taking that first sip of whiskey, or sinking gladly into your favourite leather armchair in a gentleman’s club. And if you long for such pleasures, you’re in great company, as it happens…

A fragrance created to be reflective of football icon Ronaldo’s strong, vibrant character, this is one he packs in his sports bag for off-duty relaxation (with his signature style ever-present, of course). As the man himself explains: ‘Smelling good makes me feel good and I wanted to create something that’s easy enough to wear every day. Wherever I go, CR7 is always in my bag so I can freshen up on-the-go and ensure that I always feel my best.’ X
