Paul Smith Extreme Sport, 30ml, £22.50

Yummymummyrating 4.8

Paul Smith’s ‘Extreme Sport’ is a fresh and outdoorsy twist on his innovative ‘Extreme for Men’. This long lasting blend of citrus, woody and spicy notes takes its cue from Extreme with energizing grapefruit and bergamot, then adds a double hit of cooling Morrocan mint and invigorating black pepper. Sensual incense, cedarwood and tonka bean give the scent longevity, which when tested on my partner lasted an impressive eight hours on the skin. The chic bathroom friendly teal bottle features Paul’s iconic multi-stripe and chronograph images, making this Sport version a new classic in the making.

This would make a fabulous gift for men of all ages who have a little bit of Bear Grylls in their soul! Available nationwide from May 2014.

Psst!!! If you buy the 100ml version (£37.99) from The Fragrance Shop you’ll receive a FREE try it first sample and a FREE sports bag too! We love!

 

Mont Blanc Emblem, Mont Blanc, 60ml, £42.50

Yummymummyrating 4.6

Montblanc’s new ‘Emblem’ fragrance is a fresh, woody aromatic Ryan Gosling of a fragrance! Housed in their iconic black six point star flacon (based on the snow peak and six glacial valleys surrounding Mont Blanc) this is for the man who is refined but powerful with strong presence and attraction. Form an orderly queue please, ladies!

Delicious top notes of Bitter Grapefruit, Icy Cardamom and Clary Sage leaf give way to heart notes of Black Pepper and Violet leaves. The deep base tones of Cinnamon, precious Woods and tonka beans give the fragrance depth, stamina and in-house tests proved impressive longevity. A timeless, elegant and exclusive scent for the man who has everything! Available nationwide from June 2014

Psst!!! If you buy the 60ml version (£42.50) from The Fragrance Shop you’ll receive a FREE try it first sample and a FREE weekend bag too! Why wait?

 

Arber, The Body Shop, 100ml, £15.00

Yummymummyrating 4.3

Arber is the best-selling men’s eau de toilette from The Body Shop. This sensual woody scent with a hint of citrus to freshen is perfect for summer wear and scored an impressive customer rating of 4.8/5 and rave reviews. Customers loved the excellent value for money and gorgeously sensual fragrance and it seems once an Arber fan, always an Arber fan!

In trials, not perhaps the staying power of the high-end fragrances, but layer this baby up with the Arber After Shave Balm, £8.50 perfect for drier skins and the Arber Hair and Body Wash, £6.00 for chaps who love one multi-tasking product which can do the whole caboodle. A wonderful summery everyday fragrance for all ages of man. www.thebodyshop.co.uk
