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.


Introducing Womanity By Thierry Mugler

Thierry Mugler WomanityMention Thierry Mugler perfumes and the first thing that comes to mind is Angel and for good reason. Angel was something of a revelation as the first oriental gourmand fragrance with its sweet chocolate and caramel notes. While Mugler has released several women’s fragrances since Angel, Alien, Peony Angel, Rose Angel to name a few, none have managed to capture the imagination quite as much as the original.

But that might change with the introduction of Thierry Mugler Womanity. The aim this time around was to create a sweet/savoury scent. While this in itself is nothing new, the subtle use of caviar for its salty, almost leathery qualities, is certainly a first. This is balanced by a burst of ripe, sweet fig pulp, complemented by a woody note of fig tree.

Thierry Mugler Womanity eau de parfum will be available in 30ml, 50ml and 80mls in stunning pink glass and metal refillable bottles from this month.
