Now that we’re getting back out on the town and spending time in (slightly) closer proximity to friends, it’s time to get back into a regular grooming regimen — and that includes choosing a fresh summer fragrance. In today’s increasingly visual landscape, using a scent to communicate is more intimate than ever. These fragrances are as captivating as they are refreshing, each with its own unique story to tell.
K BY DOLCE & GABBANA
Bask in the experience of the Mediterranean with this citrusy blend of blood orange and Sicilian lemon. Hearty notes of sage and geranium collide with a spark of pimento essence before drying down into sensual vetiver and patchouli.
GIVENCHY GENTLEMAN BOISÉE
Sensuality is the focus of this new edition of Givenchy’s iconic Gentle- man. Spicy coriander, iris, and sandalwood make for a heady caress that’s warm and playful all at once.
MAISON FRANCIS KURKDJIAN GENTLE FLUIDITY SILVER
Opening with amber woods, this eau de parfum ascends into a gin-frappé effect balanced by the dry and balmy notes of nutmeg. Made for him and her, its complex range runs from sweet to powerful.
PACO RABANNE INVICTUS ONYX
Inspired by the divine power of the onyx stone, this new take on Invictus is a hero-worthy woody-fresh scent. A marine accord melds with guaiac wood and ambergris, marking a winner of many talents.
DIOR HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE
An updated version of 2005’s Dior Homme, this intensely woody scent boasts a burnt, leather-like, animalistic charm. The secret ingredient is Iso E Super, an enigmatic note rumoured to have pheromonic qualities.
