FACE OF THE FRA­GRANCE

AugustMan (Malaysia) - - Grooming - NICK BATE­MAN

Once the face of Aber­crom­bie & Fitch, Nick Bate­man is great with a bo staff and founded a denim la­bel called DTLA. His name may not ring a bell as loudly as David Gandy or Sean O’Pry, but if so­cial me­dia stand­ing is any­thing to go by, Bate­man cur­rently has 6.6 mil­lion fol­low­ers. He lets us in on his pref­er­ences and ap­proach to­wards wear­ing a fra­grance.

What are your favourite fra­grance notes?

Cit­rus, be­cause I like to smell fresh. I also like woody notes be­cause they give you that musky, mas­cu­line pres­ence. Be­fore Bul­gari Man’s Wood Essence was cre­ated I would wear a scent that was very cit­rusy for day and a darker, wood­ier one for evening.

What do you like about Bul­gari Man’s Wood Essence?

I like that its notes strike a bal­ance be­tween the city and na­ture, and how it hits the sweet spot for what I like about scents and how I use them. Now, I have a beard balm that smells like es­sen­tial oils that make peo­ple think I’m not wear­ing any fra­grance but smell good nat­u­rally. To me, that is the coolest thing ‒ to not be ob­vi­ously wear­ing a per­fume. The good thing about this fra­grance is that it could al­most be a nat­u­ral scent com­pared to other fra­grances that tend to smell a lit­tle more ar­ti­fi­cial.

Can you give us a tip on how to wear a fra­grance?

I like to spray it on the pulse points, be­cause th­ese ar­eas of the body are warmer and there­fore set the fra­grance off. I also spray it around my ears and head just so that when I’m meet­ing some­one and they hug me, they’ll get the smell.
