Top 5: Men’s Fragrances – April Edition

With men continuously lifting their fragrance games, I’ve decided to put together a collection of my personal favourite scents of the month. Everything from oud to private blends, you’ll find it in these new monthly edition. This month, I cover one of my favourite fragrances from Christian Dior, as well as take you through Dsquared2 and Dunhill’s latest releases.

1. Chopard 1000 Miglia


Chopard 1000 Miglia Extreme is a vibrant and addictive woody oriental. To convey the sudden rush of adrenaline experienced during a car race, Bruno Jovanovic (IFF) created a striking contrast between a fresh and vivifying floral top note of lavender and a powerful base note of leather.

2. Christian Dior Ambre Nuit


From Dior’s private blend collection, Ambre Nuit caught my attention immediately after a quick scent passed by. A mysterious fragrance, inspired by the baroque atmosphere and balls of the 18th century, which left their marks on Christian Dior. The tale of a Rose seduced by carnal Amber, which together unveil an unexpected profound, intense and elusive scent.

3. Dsquared2 Wild


Wild is an evolution of Dsquared2 olfactory journey inspired by and founded in the elements of nature. Building on a pathway forged by debut scent He Wood and follow up Potion, Wild is a new fragrance chapter for Dsquared2 that explores man’s desires and his connection to the natural and urban world that surrounds him. Wild materializes Dsquared2 passion for the avant-guard and unorthodox approach to fashion.

4. Dunhill London ICON


ICON is an audacious, stylish scent that embodies the perfect union of strength and sensitivity. A future classic of the perfumer’s art ICON has been conceptualised by Master Perfumer, Carlos Benaim. Ingredients gathered from the travels of the dunhill man, a worldly sophisticated traveller, the smell exotic and distinctive. ICON opens with the ultimate blend of rare and expensive ingredients.

5. L’Home Ideal Cologne by Guerlain

Almond is the signature of L’Homme Idéal. It remains at the heart of the composition in the Cologne. You might even say that the Cologne effect comes from green almond. In other words, the personality of L’Homme Idéal hasn’t changed. The woody aspect of the fragrance, which was emphasised by patchouli in the Eau de Toilette, is illuminated by vetiver, revealing another of its facets.
