Puttin’ On The Spritz
THE HIS AND HERS FRAGRANCE TREND IS INTENSIFYING, NOT PETERING OUT. HERE ARE THE LATEST PASSION IGNITERS TO MATCH YOUR MOODS.
CALVIN KLEIN OBSESSED FOR WOMEN AND FOR MEN
A re-tread of Obsession, this is Calvin Klein’s sex incarnate bestseller. The ads use unseen footage from the 1993 campaign for the original juice starring Kate Moss, shot by her then-boyfriend Mario Sorrenti. If it’s true that people go away to come back, these memory lane newbies are definitive gettingback-together scents. But even if the relationship is new, the men’s version is a feel-good blend of spices, leather and woods. Soft and fresh with lavender, its female counterpart is simply sexy. From $79 for both; Myer, David Jones and selected pharmacies.
HUGO BOSS THE SCENT INTENSE FOR HIM AND FOR HER
Guys who liked the original 2015 release – The Scent – will welcome the amplified power of this follow-up. Balanced and spicy, the warm drydown lasts for six hours minimum without becoming overpowering. The peach note that made The Scent for Her such a winner is back in this spicier, deeper version. You can’t go wrong with this pair whether the occasion is casual or dignified. $145 For Him and $129 For Her.
FLORIS TURNBULL & ASSER 71/ 72 AND CHYPRESS
Movie villains lack class these days. In the original James Bond movie, Dr No provided Floris bath essences for Sean Connery and Ursula Andress when he imprisoned them in his island lair. The British upper crust brand offers two new fragrances for a classy attraction of opposites. The men’s juice, created in collaboration with establishment shirtmaker Turnbull & Asser, is a woody aromatic that suggests Kingsman-like machismo. In contrast, Chypress is a sensual white floral – crisp yet yielding. $299 for Him and $199 for Her; libertineparfumerie.com.au
