Men’s Fragrances That Are All About That Base

​A fragrance’s base notes deliver character and body, and are often what creates lingering memories.

A confident and daring man needs an equally compelling fragrance. Jimmy Choo Man Intense comes with top notes of lavender and honeydew melon, and a trio of new notes to bolster the amber base. The combination of patchouli heart and tonka beans bring an almond-meets-tobacco edge that is warm and masculine.

Created with the rare ingredient of oak moss for a green, woody scent, the Colonia Quercia by Acqua Di Parma is harmonised with patchouli and the rich aroma of tonka beans at its base. A more vibrant fusion of geranium, cardamom and cedar wood at the top transports you to a getaway in the forests of Piedmont.

Prada’s Luna Rosea Eau Sport opens to emit a rich earthy scent, with grey amber and a spicier note of cedar wood at its base. Meant to evoke the excitement and challenges of extreme sailing, this composition of zesty ginger and the citrusy top notes is balanced by a touch of salty lavender, reminiscent of the sea.

As the third adaptation of Dunhill’s original fragrance for men, the Icon Elite retains the woody base of vetiver and introduces sandalwood and black suede for sophistication. Adding depth to the cologne, spicy notes of sweet cardamom and black pepper flirt with the delicacy of heart blue sage and juniper.

The contents of the studded Valentino Uomo Intense play with the scents of black suede and vanilla beans to create a mysterious masculine aura, lightened with top notes of clary sage and mandarin orange, with iris absolute at the heart. The finely blended scent captures an evocative feel of strength and elegant enchantment.
