A Trio of New Fragrances for Men

Men's FragrancesIt’s a busy time of the year for new fragrance releases and hot on the heels of Joop! Splash and Hugo Boss Orange for Men comes a trio of new men’s fragrances from Baldessarini, Dior and Thierry Mugler.

First up, Private Affairs, another fragrance that’s ‘not for boys’ from Baldessarini so expect something less unisex and a little more traditionally ‘manly’. Private Affairs follows Baldessarini Strictly Private as the second in the ‘Private’ range of fragrances and this time centers around leather – think leather seats in an expensive sports car. Private Affairs will be available as a 50ml and 90ml eau dea toilette and a 90ml aftershave lotion.

A*Men Pure Havane is the latest limited edition for men from Thierry Mugler which this year takes its inspiration from fine Cuban cigars. Previous limited edition incarnations, Pure Coffee and Pure Malt, certainly got perfume aficionados talking and no doubt Pure Havane will do the same with its notes of tobacco, honey, vanilla, patchouli, cocoa, amber, styrax and labdanum. A*Men Pure Havane will only be available as a 100ml eau de toilette.

It seems like not so long ago we had the release of Dior’s Fahrenheit Absolute for men but that was in fact back in 2009. Aqua Fahrenheit continues the fiery theme (remember the TV advert with the seemingly heat resistant model walking over freshly molten rocks) but this time explores the moment when fire and water mix. Notes include citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, violet, mint, vetiver, leather and woods and will be available as both a 75ml and 125ml eau de toilette.

Hugo Boss To Release Boss Orange For Men

BOSS Orange for menIn July last year we first heard news that Hugo Boss was preparing to release a men’s version of the popular BOSS Orange for women with the face of another British actor, the elf-prince himself, Orlando ‘Legolas’ Bloom (or Will the blacksmith’s apprentice if you preferred him in Pirates of the Caribbean). With the February launch date fast approaching, more details of the fragrance are coming to light.

Billed as a powerful scent for a man who’s “passionate, casual, spontaneous and relaxed”, this spicy composition will include notes of apple, vanilla, incense and African Bubinga wood and will be available as both a 60ml and 100ml eau de toilette and aftershave together with a shaving balm, deodorant spray and deodorant stick. Expect to see some Boss Orange for Men giftsets available, just in time for valentine’s day.

Can You Name 5 Fragrances Containing Rum?

Bacardi RumAt this time of year it seems like we need little excuse to put rum into everything from Christmas cake to custard. So to keep in the ‘spirit’ of things (did you get that?) here’s a list of 5 fragrances that contain rum.

Lacoste Pour Homme
Elegant, fresh and a little bit dark, Lacote Pour Homme is a fragrance based around the mysterious scent of Dark Rum. A winning dash of fruitiness is added to the mix with Apple and Plum.

SJP NYC for Her
A stylish scent mixed like a cocktail. Addictive, fruity and colourful notes of Wild Strawberries, Bergamot Rose Damascena and Vanillary Rum celebrate the never-ending vivacity of the Big Apple.

Carolina Herrera 212 VIP for Her
A heady blend of unique notes to celebrate the talent of New York’s young creatives. Includes Rum, Passion Fruit, Gardenia and Vanilla to evoke their attitude, their originality and their style.

DKNY Red Delicious for Men
A tantalising and exotic mix of the fruitiest of aromas. Deep, mesmerising and intoxicating, DKNY Red Delicious blends notes of Cognac, Saffron, Apple Liqueur and Rum for a lasting impression.

Hugo Man
A fresher interpretation of Rum with crisp Lavender, Green Apple, Mint and Pine Tree. A dose of mystery for a scent that is otherwise as clear as day. Undeniably masculine and clean.
