Men’s Fashion Advice – Keep Up With Scents and Fragrances

I have a suspicion that I am like many other men that once we find a fragrance we like we tend to stick with it and buy it continuously until we either receive an alternative as a gift or our scent is discontinued and we have to hunt down our new Eau de Toilette or Eau de Parfum!

This year I have been a huge fan of the Tom Ford for Men Eau de Toilette – I needed something for a wedding and was wandering lost around a department store until a helpful assistant pointed me in the direction of this spicy scent.

Men’s Fashion Review – Hugo Boss Bottled Night

A reworking of the previous Hugo Boss cologne, Hugo Boss Night, takes an entirely different direction in fragrance. It is a woody/earthy scent that has a mix of birch leaves, cardamom, louro amarelo wood, lavender, amaretto, African violet, and musk. The spicy combination with a slight floral allure is intended to convey a greater scene of masculinity and, perhaps, more provocativeness.

The men’s fragrance, which is packaged in a sleek dark blue bottle, has a great presentation and is available in an Eau De Toilette spray, shave balm, shower gel, and a deodorant stick or spray. Hugo Boss Night is listed with the other Hugo Boss products for $50-$65 for the spray cologne, though some less konwn purveyors may have some of the other products listed for sale at a lower price.

Men’s Fashion Review – Lacoste 2012 Summer Edition Eau de Toilette

Lacoste, more commonly known for its sportswear, is a French clothing company that was established in 1933 and it is a brand where you will find high-end clothing, accessories, footwear, watches, eye-wear, and fragrance. This year, with all the excitement of the Summer Olympics, Lacoste released a limited edition to their most popular selling fragrances.

Many people don’t really think about it, but the sense of smell is a huge part of our existence. It plays very important part in the making of memories. Our sense of smell transports us back to pleasant and not so pleasant experiences in our past. Fragrance has a way of also setting a mood or creating an impression. Lacoste’s limited edition fragrance campaign, “Celebrate the Beauty of the Game,” can apply to the 2012 Summer Olympics, as well as to life in general.
