Review: Coach for Men
When it comes to luxury men’s goods which are compatible with everyday life, Coach would have to be one of my go to brands. The American brand which is celebrating its 75th Anniversary is renowned for its approach to leather and age-old approach to craftsmanship. Originally established as a Men’s leather brand, Coach has evolved through the years expanding its offering with a collection for women, ready to wear fashion, jewelry and now fragrances with the release of Coach for Men, a confident and cool scent which oozes New York attitude. Staying true to the brands signature of being unfussy and unpretentious, Coach for Men is a versatile scent which is well suited to whatever the season has coming your way.
Name: Coach for Men
Fragrance notes: Green Nashi, Bergamot, Kumquat, Cardamom, Coriander, Geranium, Vetiver Haiti LMR, Suede and Ambergris
Described as: Coach For Men starts with an energetic top note of crisp and effervescent green Nashi pear. A spicy burst of cardamom adds warmth, complexity and a subtle touch of sweetness. The scent ends with a textured base of vetiver—earthy, woody and green—layered with hints of suede and ambergris.
Wear it: During the day in spring and summer. Coach for Men is suited to most occasions whether you're heading to the office, to the pub with mates to catch a sporting match or to complement your relaxed weekend look when you’re living life.
The verdict: What I enjoy most about this fragrance is its burst of freshness which is modern, masculine and straightforward. Coach for Men is an excellent choice when you’re travelling or when you’re unsure where the day will take you. I found the fragrance had a nice balance of sweet and refreshing notes and when the spicy and earthy notes started to come through, created a beautiful, intimate warmth. In terms of intensity, I would say this fragrance is on the lighter side but will still get attention while you’re in the presence of company. I wear this fragrance a lot on weekends whether it be a visit to the shops, out and about grabbing a coffee or catching up with friends for a Sunday brunch. A superb choice for spring and summer – be sure to take it with you reapply, so you always smell your best!
