Valentines Day Fragrances To Seduce Him


Boss The Scent

BOSS valentines The fragrance boasts an exclusive ingredient from Africa: the aphrodisiac Maninka fruit, evocative of passion fruit and rum. However, the Maninka also evokes something deeper and more profound: the tug of desire and the pull of memory. Set on a virile leather base, its effect is potent, original, never to be forgotten. Top note of spicy ginger makes a spirited and beguiling first impression. Heart note, the rousing maninka fruit fuses with lavender to swathe the skin in sensuality. Base note: an intense, burnished leather, lingering like memory, conveys pure, magnetic masculinity. And, of course, there is another essential ingredient: the BOSS man, who lends his own seductive charm to make an unforgettable impression.

Crabtree & Evelyn Leather Musk Cologne

Leather Musk Cologne 100ml £30 Crabtree & Evelyn This engaging fragrance blends the scent of rich leather with soft, musky tones. Alongside these sensuous accords, Indonesian Patchouli and Haitian Vetiver add a warm, woody appeal, highlighted by an uplifting lemon accent to cool and brighten. The bottle is a distinguished auburn colour and complemented by a sleek cap. It is presented in a sophisticated grey box bearing the distinctive logo of Crabtree & Evelyn’s men’s fragrances.

YSL L’Homme Ultime


 This modern fragrance opens with aromatic, woody and deeply compelling sensation. Uplifting essence of grapefruit reveals itself punctured by Ginger & Cardamon Seed. Rippling through the centre, a shot of energetic Damask Rose lifts and clarifies, exquisitely contrasted  with the sobriety of Geranium and the raw sensuality of Clary Sage. A base of Cedar Oil and Vetiver form the interminable trail of the blend lending a sense of unquestionable authority. Irresistibly masculine and seductive.

Michael Kors Extreme Blue

The modern and dynamic blend of fragrance notes perfectly complements the man ready to conquer the world. It opens with bergamot’s crisp bite, while the addition of angelica seed and pink pepper introduce a spicy zest. Cardamom offers an invigorating effect of cool spice to bring the top notes to full momentum. At its heart, the fragrance exudes a classic masculinity of juniper and cypress, with nutty undertones of sesame blend and herbaceous sage for a creamy and fresh effect. The dry down is the addictive scent of ambrox, which imparts a smooth, velvety sensation while also being clean and woody. Ambrox’s warmth is reinforced with soft cashmere woods and the sensuality of musks. As the finishing touch, patchouli infuses the fragrance with an earthy, intriguing aroma.

Hermes Bel Ami


Long live the boldness of Bel Ami with its calm, masculine strength! Without disrupting the old order created in 1986, to retain the same balance, fine raw materials and classic structure, Jean-Claude Ellena created his own version based on a new ingredient. From chipper leather to woody leather…vetiver takes over from patchouli. A reference to the novel of the same name by Guy de Maupassant, Bel Ami celebrates leather in its most authentic form. The chypre note, conceived in 1986 by Jean-Louis Sieuzac, is an equally opulent and characterful interpretation of the raw material, in an astonishingly sensual tone.

Burberry Brit for Him

The perfect illustration of the modern English spirited man is embodied by this scent. A timeless fragrance from a the classic brand Burberry. This masculine fragrance opens with top notes of mandarin orange, ginger, bergamot and cardamom. Burberry Brit for Men then moves into a floral and spiced heart of rose, spices, nutmeg and cedar needles. Finally it comes to an end with an array of base notes, including tonka bean, patchouli, oriental wood and white musk. Perfect for the special evening with your loved one!
