Let’s Discuss Men’s Fragrances…

How do you feel about your man’s fragrance?  Do you fancy a scent, or do you want him to just smell like soap?  I enjoy a fragrance on my men (my sons included), but I’m ultra-picky about the scent.  It cannot be powdery or musky, or I’m in a perpetual state of feeling carsick, and no one wants that situation.

My husband, Stephen wears Bvlgari Aqva, and I love it.  The combination of notes are bright and invigorating: Mandarin, Petit Grain, Santolina, Posidonia, Mineral Amber.  Style:  Fresh. Elegant. Masculine.

My eldest son, Alex wears John Varvatos Artisan.   It’s suits him perfectly, with a modern citrus, leather and woodsy blend of notes. (The packaging with the wicker bottle is stunningly masculine and unusual.)

John Varvatos Artisan – 4.2 oz. – $77 – JohnVarvatos.com

Lastly, my 21-year old son, Hunter wears Hanae Mori and has since he was 16.  (Quite the sophisticate, eh?)  Get a load of the combination of notes in this spectacular fragrance: Jasmine, lavender, vanilla and chocolate.  Again, this fragrance is absolutely perfect for the man who wears it: “Unforgettable. Strong. Noble.”

Scent plays such an enormous part of our memories, and I love that I have these wonderful scents in my mind’s eye…or should I say mind’s nose?

ooooh i love men’s fragrances! I think it started when my Dad changed to Armani Eau Pour Homme after years of Dior’s Eau Sauvage. I loved both those fresh zesty smells. I bought myself L’Instant de Guerlain pour homme a couple of years ago because i loved wearing it. My husband has now stolen it and is now on his 2nd bottle – so i don’t get to wear it anymore. He also loves Habit Rouge de Guerlain which i’m not crazy about – very powdery. I’d LOVE for him to try Terre de Hermes which is my present favourite but he doesn’t like it:-(

I’m totally gay, but I don’t really like any fragrances. Honestly, I wear Fantasy by Britney Spears… :)
