As we’re well into spring and looking towards summer, there’s no better time to consider a fresh fragrance. The world of men’s fragrances can be a tough one to navigate, with a huge number of brands and scents on offer. To simplify things a bit we’re showcasing five of our favourite fragrances right now…
LAPP Fragrances – Ascension
Designed and hand-bottled in Australia, LAPP Fragrances was born out of a wild curiosity with natural elements such as seasons, textures and botanicals. Each scent is created with the finest ingredients to unleash your skin’s individual chemistry. Featuring notes of fir, forest and thyme, Ascension is a light, timeless scent.
Mihan Aromatics‘ curated collection of fragrances aims to tap into your connection to places, objects and emotions. For example, the Melbourne-based brand’s description of Mikado Bark is ‘immutable, fastidious, grounded and gestural’. The beautiful minimalist bottle complements this fresh, contemporary fragrance.
Having successfully produced cognac since 1270, P Frapin & Cie has drawn on that same passion to craft a range of fragrances that indulge the senses. Combining both tradition and modern luxury, the warm hue of 1270 reflects its rich notes of candied orange, vine flowers and white honey. Each bottle is topped with a beech wood cap in a nod to the French label’s wood cognac casks.
Amouage‘s fine fragrances are made with only the highest quality ingredients from around the world. Their portfolio of unique scents are formulated in cities such as Paris and New York by the best perfumers in the business. Honour is a spicy and woody blend with top notes of pepper, heart notes including geranium, and an earthy base of patchouli, frankincense, vetiver and tonka bean.
Pacific Rock Moss by Goldfield & Banks is inspired by the southern coastline of New South Wales in Australia. In fact, each of their fragrances is influenced by the Australian terrain, from ochre plains to lush woodlands. Pacific Rock Moss is grounded by cedarwood before unleashing a sea spray scent that is ideal for salty summer days.
