Yes gents, that’s right. Summer is here! So you’ll want to take a look at my top four men’s scents for summer, which will get you in the mood for sunshine and transport you to the Bahamian sands (WARNING: these fragrances will not physically transport you to the Bahamas)…
OK, let’s start at the beach, with Calvin Klein CK One Summer. Start your day in your chino shorts and boat shoes with a spritz of this invigorating light and fruity scent, with its top notes of lime mojito and green pineapple.
Now, if you’re nothing like me and enjoy the idea of a run or workout on a warm, sunny day, Montblanc Legend Spirit may be the one for you. Its notes of grapefruit and bergamot spiced with white musk and pink pepper will give you the perfect post workout boost, helping you stay energised and feel alive.
Fresh and masculine BVLGARI Aqva is THE scent to accompany you on holiday. With its crisp blend of mandarin and orange tree leaf top notes and warm mineral amber base notes, it’s perfect for days spent lounging on the beach, and sophisticated and charming enough for those romantic nights out. The elegant bottle, with a sleek pebble design and mysterious blue hue, gives a simple yet luxury feel to the brand.
And for the water (be that aqua zumba or surfing), let me introduce you to Hollister Wave For Him. This is the scent you’ll want to own as soon as you smell it. It’s a summer masterpiece – fresh, beachy and preppy, with top notes of bamboo leaves and grapefruit tied together with neroli and lavender and rainforest accord.
