Your choice of scent is crucial in cementing your signature style as well as an indication of the sort of man you are at the moment. If your wardrobe is crammed with Dior Homme and Jil Sander, you’ll fall for a clean fragrance like Serge Lutens’s L’Eau Froide, with its notes of Somalian incense, mint and vetiver. If you find yourself lying on the beach more often than not, L’Artisan’s Batucada might fit with its heady fun-in-the-sun blend. For the experimental, Diptyque’s Eau Rose surprises with its floral-citrus blend that is sensual like a tea rose, and fruity-masculine with notes of lychee, blackcurrant, honey and soft musk.
