1 Million by Paco Rabanne
What could possibly be cooler than a fragrance in the shape of a gold bar? And trust us this is a fragrance that is worth its weight in gold. This seductive scent combines the fresh spice of peppermint with the cool citrus of blood mandarin to create irresistible top notes. As these notes fade away bold heart notes of rose and amber are exposed perfectly rounding off this enticing masculine scent. Just a word of warning, you might find him the bathroom with 1 Million pretending to be a bank robber… definitely not speaking from personal experience here…
Sauvage by Dior
When the snowy weather outside has frozen everyone to the bone, warm the hearts around you with the warmth of mandarin and bergamot. Woody middle notes of sandalwood and cedar add a refreshing natural middle break to Sauvage. Sweetly mellow tonka beans and vanilla round off this fragrance leaving a lasting sweetness to carry you through the festive period. This oriental fragrance is the perfect blend of sharp and sweet – with Sauvage by Dior you can be naughty and nice this Christmas.
Stronger with you by Armani
Let him know just how much he means to you with “Stronger with you” by Armani. This warm, masculine fragrance embodies the unbreakable connection between two souls. Spicy pink pepper essence combines with fruity apple accord in the top notes forming a harmonious relationship. Get into the Christmas spirit with heart notes of sage and cinnamon. Finally glazed chestnut accord in the base notes brings back childhood memories of chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Pair “Stronger with You” for him with “Because It’s You” for her for a fragrance pairing made in heaven. The perfect stocking fillers for him and for her.
Invictus by Paco Rabanne
Is he the champion of your world? Reward him with the trophy shaped Invictus by Paco Rabanne. Powerful and bold, Invictus will shake up your world mixing fresh grapefruit peel with warm Gaïac Wood. Bold, dry notes of Labdanum add leathery highlights to this masculine scent. Finally, earthy base notes of ambergris and Oakmoss rise through to a powerful crescendo ending this fragrance with a bang. You might have to deal with the fact that he’ll be bragging that he now has a trophy but that’s a small price to pay for him to smell great!
