The Grooming Room: The Fragrance Refresh

The Grooming Room: The Fragrance Refresh

It’s 2018, and we’re ushering the new year in with a fragrance refresh as radical as the one we have planned for our wardrobes. A wardrobe re-edit at the dawn of the new year is par for the course for many stylish men – by unburdening yourself of the pieces you no longer wear and making a few carefully selected new season additions. But just as putting your best foot forward in a new outfit is important, so is scent. You want to smell as good as you look, and that means reconsidering your grooming products, of which fragrance is the core. It’ll make you feel like a new man, what with the intensity of the olfactory sense, and you can execute this fragrance renaissance from the comfort of your own bathroom.

Baby, it’s cold outside (still), and whilst the Cruise collections may be hitting the shops, there still isn’t any sun in Blighty (and won’t be for a while.) As such, woodsy, musky smells with some fresh and floral top notes will see you through the darker months without precluding continued use in spring. Mont Blanc Legend is a great transitional fragrance. Designed for confident men who are as masculine as they are passionate, it combines contrasting scents that evoke strength and tenderness, tradition and modernity. Opening with fresh and aromatic tones of bergamot, lavender and pineapple leaf, it dries to a woody, musky base of sandalwood and tonka.

In 2018, resolve to be a better man with some better cologne. That means seriously considering the values and principles that are important to you and that define your character – not to get too deep. If you’re anything like us, you like to think of yourself as a man of style, sophistication and confidence – which happen to be the characteristics attributed to Jimmy Choo’s first fragrance, Man. As stylish as the iconic designer's collections of sneakers and shoes, it's aromatic, fruity and woody. A good one for seeing your stylish (and cold) nose out the other side of winter.
