THE BOYS’ BRIGADE
THE SAILOR Moschino Forever Sailing, Dh240, Sephora. The nautical notes give off an athletic and contemporary vibe. Like a day out by the sea, this breezy scent captures classic notes of amber woods infused with hints of musk, and patchouli opens up to subtle lavender and juniper berries.
THE SECRET AGENT Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb, Dh280, Debenhams. A quick spritz is just what you need for a fast fix and secret confidence boost. Prep yourself for audacious chilli, tobacco, leather and vetiver, plus a blast of morale-pumping citrus.
THE SECRET MILLIONAIRE YSL L’Homme Parfum Intense, Dh311, Debenhams. This powerful fragrance has a provocative blend of woody notes bound with an expensive suede accord. The magnetic power of the fragrance is just as irresistible on women.
THE TRAVELLER Acqua Di Parma Colonia Intensa Oud, Dh670, Bloomingdale’s. Lost somewhere between an island and a desert, this blend of Arabic oud meets fresh Mediterranean aromas. This exotic concentreé has a citrus smell carefully blended in with exquisite ingredients like agarwood, Russian coriander and Haitian amyris wood, which evolve into a musky leather finish.
THE DUALLY NOTED Diptyque Eau Duelle Eau De Parfum, Dh525, Diptyque, The Dubai Mall. The masculine edge of this fragrance is offset with bourbon vanilla blended in cool spices and a smoky base, whereas the top note is black tea and frankincense. The duelling accord makes it the ying yang of fragrances.
THE DURACELL BUNNY Ermenegildo Zegna Uomo, Dh325, Ermenegildo Zegna, The Dubai Mall. A punchy, high-octane thriller of refreshing bergamot and metallic notes. “It embodies the ultimate feeling of ascension,” says Trudi Loren, vice-president of corporate fragrance development.
THE WHITE KNIGHT Dior Homme Cologne, Dh363, Harvey Nichols. This is the crisp, white, laundry-fresh shirt of the scent world. Think citrus zest with an icy cologne splash factor – a get-outof-the-shower-clean-smelling fragrance.
