Fashion juggernaut Louis Vuitton debuted fragrances for men earlier this year in an already competitive market, but its presence attests to the opportunities to be had. Men today are more willing to experiment with scents, in contrast to sticking to the same perfume for years.
Says Susan Tan from fragrance distributor Luxasia: “Men are now starting to own at least two fragrances with many owning multiples, providing variety to their scent library.”
She observes that more are becoming adventurous with their choices, going for long lasting non-commercial, or “cult” scents.
Whether you’re the daring or the brand-loyal sort, we present here a selected menu of the fragrances launched this year, plus our verdict of the product.
AZZARO WANTED BY NIGHT
The name makes no bones about the purpose of this eau de parfum, which begs to be experimented with. We say, sure, it’s got the makings of a suave exotic gentleman, but it settles down to be quite a sweet smell. Then again, this may be ideal for the morning after.
In short: Take it for a spin.
