A round up of five popular scents for men, from iconic fragrance houses
Launched in 1985 • Green citrus, Ozonic Iris, Soft woody and Sweet Ambery • Fresh and unforgettable
A signature scent from the house of creed, Green Irish Tweed is described as "a walk through the Irish countryside" With an iris and lemon verbena opening Green Irish Tweed is transportive. The violet leaf heart and mysore sandal, ambergris base create a rich textured, green aromatic progression with a bold silage. For the gentleman who seeks sophistication and adventure. One who has behind him familial heritage, maybe tales of war or fables of jewels and riches or art and antiques or estates and stables or maybe all...but certainly not one to settle into oblivion or solitude.
Launched in 2016 • Sweet smoky, Spicy rum, Dry coconut, earthy moss • Bold and arresting
Inspired by Sufi poet Rumi's lines..."set your life on fire and seek those who fan your flames"This fragrance talks about passion and emotion that is intoxicating and obsessive and is only felt by those closest to you. A medley of refined coconut complimented in the most unique manner by rum and tobacco awarding it an aged antiquated quality, made fine like wine, heavily nuanced with balsamic undertones that are more dried fruity than resinous and all covered with dense veil of smoke. The fragrance progresses like a young boy grows into a man garnering years of experience and wisdom and collecting memories and emotions.
Launched in 2013 • Rare oud, intoxicating incense, rich liqueur, heavy spice, dark woods, idealised tobacco • Mesmerising and adventurous
"TOBACCO OUD EXPLORES A SECRET HISTORY OF ADDICTIVE ARABIC PASSIONS - CRAFTING FRAGRANCES FROM PRECIOUS OUD WOOD RESIN AND SMOKING AROMATIC TOBACCO. IT INTERTWINES MESMERIZING OUD WITH AN IDEALIZED ARABIC TOBACCO ACCORD INSPIRED BY "DOKHA" A BLEND OF HERBS, FLOWERS, AND SPICED-LADEN TOBACCO"....press release of TOM FORD TOBACCO OUD
Launched in 2015 • Fresh citrus, Warm amber, Rustic spice, Raw woods • Suave and wild
"A strong and unmistakable masculinity. Like the image of a man who transcends time and fashion..."This was the vision of François Demachy when he set out to create one of the most timeless pillar scents from the house of Dior.
Radiant top notes burst with the juicy freshness of Reggio di Calabria Bergamot. Ambroxan, derived from precious ambergris, unleashes a powerfully woody trail. Sausage is evocative and takes one to a land where ozone blue sky sprawled above a rocky landscape, white-hot beneath the desert sun.
Launched in 2012 • Zesty spice, Rich amber, textured leather, Animalic ciste, Agarwood smoke • Addictive and chaotic with a strong sense of purpose
Christopher Chong's iconic creation is as profound as his thoughts "All the social and natural chaos and disorder surrounding us today can be translated to a much more intimate level. The interlude moment is a reflection of all the trials and tribulations one overcomes to attain personal satisfaction and achievement.” It translates to a spicy – woody fragrance that opens with zesty bergamot, oregano and pimento berry oil, perpetuating intervals of conflict which are countered by aromatic notes of amber, frankincense, opoponax, cistus and myrrh.
