Top 5: Men’s Fragrances – June Edition

Following on from June’s Edition, here is a list of my top 5 fragrances for the month of May.

1. Carolina Herrera Limited Edition Africa


A new destination, a unique adventure, this fragrance transports you into a world of discovery. It was constructed as a reflection of light and shade: dazzling luminosity of zesty mandarin blended with aromatic sage, spicy pimentos and bright peppercorns from Madagascar contrast with dark tonalities of Brazilian coffee beans and mysterious, viril woods. An unexpected linen accord, authentic and stylish, underlines the fragrance with the eternal elegance of the Carolina Herrera signature.

2. Prada Luna Rossa Sport


Prada Luna Rossa Sport evokes man’s deepest emotions the night before his defining challenge. The fragrance combines unexpected ingredients that express the heightened reality of the race. The Prada Luna Rossa Sport bottle symbolizes the spirit of man fused with the technical excellence of his sailing boat. Aesthetic tensions are created by juxtaposing sleek, boat-like metallic effects with bursts of striking red.

3. Armani Privè Oud Royal


From the collection “La Collection des Mille et une Nuits”, Oud Royal is a deep, warm and spicy elixir of agar wood, which is very popular in the Arab region. Agar is enriched with spicy notes of saffron, amber, rose, sandalwood and incense.

4. Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Desert Oud


Dolce&Gabbana Velvet Desert Oud floods the senses, permeating so quickly and so powerfully that the chase ultimately becomes an unconditional and comforting conquest.

5. TOM FORD Ombre de Hyacinth


A fragrance for both men and women, TOM FORD’s Ombre de Hyacinth is a striking fragrance with a lasting scent. Part of the brand’s private blend, the fragrance’s  top notes are galbanum, violet leaf, magnolia petals and olibanum; middle notes are hyacinth, pink pepper and jasmine; base notes are galbanum, benzoin and musk. The fragrance features magnolia petals and musk.
