WHERE WOOD MEETS WATER

 

Introducing the new Giorgio Armani Acqua di Giò ABSOLU – celebrating the union of water and wood. ABSOLU is the 3rd chapter in the Acqua di Giò story and has a natural, masculine authenticity about it that gives it a timeless and trans-generational appeal.

Using marine notes and patchouli, a new bold yet refined fragrance has been created. The patchouli provides the perfect balance between the aquatic fragrance and the woody aromas, creating true masculinity with a sensual twist.

The bottle, in keeping with its predecessors, is refined yet masculine and features a lacquered and engraved wooden cap with a cool metal collar – the perfect addition to any man’s scent collection.

A SCENT TO NOTE!

If you enjoy a heavier, muskier scent this one’s for you. The new Narciso Rodriguez Bleu Noir eau de parfum celebrates masculine sensuality in a rich olfactory composition that’s discreet yet potent. The recognisable Narciso Rodriguez signature musk is heightened by masculine, woody blue cedar and black ebony notes and further transformed with amber vetiver.

An artful reinterpretation of the original Bleu Noir bottle, its simple rectangular shape becomes an exquisite illusion of multi-layered transparency in two shades of blue; a blue-black centre rectangle, framed by a thin edge of electric blue luminosity.

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…
