  • SUMMER SCENT SELECTOR

SUMMER FRAGRANCES!

As summer sets in, consider adding a new fragrance to your collection. For one thing, your skin tends to produce more oil during the warmer months, which acts as a natural scent magnifier meaning less ‘product’ goes a longer way. Which is also why crisp, fresh and aromatic colognes do well this time of year.

While the classics are always reliable, if you want to stand out this season you need to try something fresh – whether totally new or a twist on your favourite classic.

To make choosing a new fragrance easier, we’ve handpicked 28 colognes to set the right mood – day or night. Make sure it’s a summer to remember with any of these…

SUN SAVVY

It’s easy to forget about summer skin care when you’re having a good time outside. Applying sunscreen regularly is probably the last thing on your mind. However, summer skin care requires you pay close attention.

It’s no secret that the sun has UVA and UVB rays that are extremely damaging to your skin, which makes it hard to believe that so many people still ignore the damage that the sun can cause to their bodies. No matter the shade of your skin – if you’re in the sun you’re at risk. Taking appropriate summer skin care precaution should be a way of life.

Echoing a record of excellence, the third Montblanc Legend olfactory chapter now reveals an equally charismatic, but more mysterious and nocturnal fragrance. Its name is Montblanc Legend NIGHT – a magnetic woody and ultra-masculine scent.

The aromatic notes of Clary sage and peppermint, enhanced with cool cardamom and bergamot, set the fragrance’s fresh and lively tone. Counterbalanced in the middle with warm cedar wood and floral lavender and violet tones and a masculine base of Vetiver, Patchouli, Musk and velvety black Vanilla.

If you’re in the market for a sexy summer-nights scent – Montblanc Legend NIGHT eau d’ Parfum is the juice you’ve been waiting for.

In terms of smarts, the On watches come with basic activity tracking and notifications, while the two ‘pushers’ on either side of the crown can be assigned to specific tasks.

Whether you’re style obsessed or want something that’s good at tracking your steps without hammering the battery, this is the one.

ESSENCE OF THE OCEAN

Aqva Pour Homme Atlantiqve is a new version of the popular masculine aquatic fragrance from Bvlgari, Aqua Pour Homme and created by the same master perfumer and famous “nose” Jacques Cavallier.

We have no doubt just like its predecessor Aqva Pour Homme, Atlantiqve is set to score high in the popularity stakes.

It’s a refreshing and energetic “aquatic” fragrance inspired by the strength of the Atlantic Ocean. Calabrian bergamot, Sicilian lemon and a “vital water” accord give it fresh zesty top notes. At its heart a “sea amber” note developed by Jacques Cavallier evokes the depths of the ocean and woody vetiver, sandalwood and patchouli give the blend masculine appeal.
