Maison Pour Le Soir by Francis Kurkdijan ($210,6.8 oz, neimanmarcus.com) translated, means “for the evening.” If your man likes a heavier fragrance, then this is absolutely the scent for him. The blend of amber and oriental notes with the Infusion of Benzoin from Siam, Bulgarian and Iranian Rose Honey and Incense absolute, make for a musky fragrance that lingers when mixed with your man’s unique body chemistry.
Hugo Boss Bottled ($70-$100, Nordstrom & Nordstrom.com) speaks to the man whose presence speaks volumes. Bottled embodies is subtle blend of apple, cinnamon and vanilla and woody notes – a reassuring fragrance that reminds one of youthful times, while still being a distinctively masculine scent. Top Notes: A crispy red apple, piqued with the subtle spiciness of cinnamon lends the fragrance an interesting, fruity and warm quality. Heart Notes: The heart of the fragrance is a green floral accord – a dewy floral note, clean and extremely fluid, with a hint of crunchy green geranium that is reminiscent of the scent of freshly cut grass. Base Notes: The olivewood accord contained in the base evokes the essence of wood and amber. Vibrant and slightly dry, it brings depth to the fragrance and introduces a strongly masculine signature.
For the guy whose secret bromance with sports legend, Michael Jordan that’s finally come to surface, gift him the Michael Jordan LEGEND Set ($50, available at select mass market retailers nationwide). ‘LEGEND’ is a woodsy, oriental scent that epitomizes Michael’s confident, charming persona – what every man would like to be. Featured notes: Bergamot, Aromatic Lavendar and Anise. Comes with a 1.7oz EDT, After-Shave Balm, Hair Body Wash.
Another woody fragrance, L’Eau D’Issey Pour Homme is a fresh, spicy fragrance that embodies energy and modernity. Give your man this sexy Holiday Gift Set which comes with a 4.2oz Eau de Toilette Spray, a 2.5 oz Shower Gel and a 1.0 oz After-Shave Balm…a timeless gift foor any season.
