Perfume's leading men: find your guy's perfect scent
Do you struggle to choose a scent for your fella?
It’s not your fault. Really it isn’t. Women are wired to like all things fruity and floral, so when faced with the aroma of deep musks and woody notes, we’re a little confused when it comes to deciding which one would most suit our guy.
Luckily, it doesn’t have to be hard. You just need to decide either a) which personality of the fragrance world’s newest leading men is most like your guy’s or b) which gorgeous hunk of celebrity man you’d most like your guy to be like…
Come on ladies, take your pick…
If he’s boy-next-door gorgeous like Chris Pine:
You should choose: Armani Code, from $84, 1300 651 991
This iconic strong, fresh scent features a blend of apple, lavender, cumin, citrus and deep woods. “Chris perfectly embodies the brand’s spirit with his strong charisma and natural elegance,” says Giorgio Armani.
If he’s funny and cute like James Franco:
You should choose: Gucci Made to Measure, $69, 02 9695 5678
The scent contains selected ingredients from around the world, including Calabrian bergamot, Tunisian orange flower, French lavender and Sri Lanken nutmeg.
“James has an innate ability to fuse classic with contemporary style and interpret formal wear in an individual way, personifying the spirit of our Made to Measure hero. His idiosyncratic wit, intellect and strong sense of self are perfectly expressed via Gucci’s personalised sartorial expertise,” says Frida Giannini
If he’s mysterious and brooding like Robert Pattinson:
You should choose: Dior Homme, $99, 02 9695 4800
This classically masculine scent features an enticing blend of notes that are sure to appeal to the opposite sex. The scent includes aromatic notes of essential oils of sisiage, lavender and bergamot, mixed with vetiver, patchouli and leather.
If he’s athletic like David Beckham:
You should choose: David Beckham Intense Instinct
Zingy, tangy and vibrant. These are the words that reflect the fresh, sensual nature of David Beckham’s latest scent offering. The juice contains mouth-watering notes of well-chilled melon, tangy lemon, zingy ginger, violet leaves and sensual musk.
If he’s oh so charming like Matthew McConaughey:
You should choose: Dolce & Gabbana The One for Men, from $79, 02 9695 5678
The stunning campaign features a dapper Matthew McConaughey and the beautiful Scarlett Johannson in a classically Old Hollywood black and white commercial that depicts the two as what can only be interpreted as old lovers that may have considered each other ‘the one’. The scent itself features a blend of charismatic and seductive notes (in true McConaughey style) such as grapefruit, coriander, basil, cardamom, ginger, cedar wood and tobacco.
