Spring Fling! The Scents You'll Love this Season
Spring is well and truly in full swing! As the weather gets warmer, choose fragrances that combine refreshing notes to cool the sunny days, while spices and woods add a touch of heat to the crisp evenings. Here are the scents I can’t keep my hands off this season:
Gucci Mémoire D’une Odeur
This genderless fragrance is unlike any refreshing scent you’ve experienced for men. Combining a unique blend of top notes including Roman chamomile, Indian Coral and Jasmine petals give the scent it’s aromatic characteristics which are sweet and floral. Once the scent settles, it has a woody and musky aroma made up of musks, sandalwood, cedarwood, and vanilla. While this fragrance may sound intense, it’s beautifully light and refreshing. Gucci Mémoire d’une Odeur 100ml EDP AUD 180. Available from Myer, David Jones and leading fragrance retailers
Zegna re-invents it’s iconic Z scent for the gentleman who is worldly and tech-savvy. This seductive scent is described as woody, watery and aromatic - exactly what the season calls for. It’s top and middle notes combine white pepper, bergamot, casoar fruit and rosemary. At its heart notes of iris, nutmeg, cashmere wood, and patchouli add a lasting impression on the skin. This scent is casual yet fashion-forward and suits any occasion the season has headed your way. Z Zegna 100ml Eau de Toilette $130. Available from Myer, David Jones and pharmacy stores and online.
Bottega Veneta Illusione for Him
On the warmer side when compared to the other fragrances in this round-up, Illusione for him is tension between freshness and sensuality with a nice hit of spice. Described as a woody citrus scent, Illusion opens with lemon and bitter orange providing a subtle nod to its Italian heritage. Notes of fir balsam and white cedarwood add depth with their woody combination, before vetiver and tonka bean add longevity and a sensual signature which lasts for hours. Bottega Veneta Illusione for Him 90ml Eau de Toilette $145. Available from Myer and David Jones stores nationally.
Tommy Hilfiger - Tommy Now
Another classic gets a fresh new look for the modern gentleman of today. While this scent stays true to the original’s combination of fresh and spicy, new notes have been adding making the scent relevant to the youth of today. Tommy Now combines notes of bergamot, mandarin orange, geranium, ginger and cardamom. At its base moss and amberwood combine to leave a spicy and refreshing impression. A 90s classic comes back with a bang reminding me of summer holidays in Europe spent by the sea. Tommy Now Eau De Toilette 100ml $75. Available from Myer, David Jones and pharmacy stores and online.
