THE BOYS’ BRIGADE

Friday - - Living -

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.
