Scents you’ll want your groom to wear on your wedding day

Monday, 19 October 2015

Want your man to smell his absolute best on your wedding day? Of course you do! Here are six fragrances we recommend he try:

Azzaro Chrome Intense EDT 100ml, R995
If you’re looking for something fresh that isn’t age-specific (ie. too “young” or too “old”) then this it the one. Woody, spicy and fresh, all at the same time, this fragrance is masculine without being overpowering. The stunning chrome and blue packaging gives it a nice masculine touch.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Swimming in Lipari EDT (Limited Edition) 75ml, R980
Dreaming of a Mediterranean wedding? This scent will take you there. Water is the dominant theme, with sea salt as its main accord, and grapefruit, rosemary and dry woods thrown into the mix. Pack it for the honeymoon too!

Christian Dior Sauvage EDT 100ml, R1215
When Johnny Depp’s the face of a scent, you know it’s a good one. Possibly one of the sexiest male scents to launch this year, Sauvage was inspired by the wilder side of nature – open landscape, clear skies and the hot desert sun. Strong, woody and seductive, this is not a scent for wallflowers.

Dunhill Icon EDP 50ml, R995
If ever there was striking packaging, this is it. The modern bottle houses an equally modern scent. The neroli, leather, oakmoss, black pepper and cardamom mix is classic yet sophisticated, and true to the sophisticated gentleman image we get from Dunhill.

Viktor + Rolf Spicebomb Extreme EDP 50ml, R1095
If you loved the intensity of the original Spicebomb, you’ll love this new Oriental twist. It’s been called “an explosion of heat,” and has a heart filled with warm spices like cumin, cinnamon and saffron. These are balanced out by pimento berries and black pepper in the opening notes and vanilla and bourbon in the base notes. Definitely a scent for the man who’s passionate and confident.

Narciso Rodriguez Bleu Noir For Him EDT 100ml, R965
Love your man’s broody and mysterious nature? Then you’ll love this sexy scent on him. Understated yet captivating, the blend of nutmeg, cardamom, blue cedar and black ebony is right up our alley.

MontBlanc Emblem Intense EDT 100ml, R1095
Another scent that’s housed in a stunning bottle, this fragrance is for the self-assured, noble and disciplined man. The elegant mix of coriander seeds, frozen violet leaves, nutmeg, cinnamon, patchouli and suede make this a gentleman’s fragrance that reeks sophistication!

    The first type of fragrance that comes to mind on ones wedding day is a “fresh type” like scent. My husband uses Acqua di Gio from Armani and I’m loving it, that would also be a very good option :)
