Scents That Stand The Test Of Time

We all have those fragrances in our collection that hold precious memories, scents that really stand the test of time and that will long be loved and worn.  Often these aren’t the trendiest colognes or the most seasonal, they tend to be real hearty classics, time-honored, reliable fragrances that you know will make you smell great all day long. 

Here’s my long-standing favourites, all important and significant to me in their own unique way.

 

Green Irish Tweed by Creed

When To Wear – knitwear and Green Irish Tweed go hand in hand.  Wear this scent with a chunky roll neck in the winter and a lightweight merino in summer.

 

Homme by Joop!

Brilliantly understated and rife with citrus fragrance, Homme by Joop! is one of the most classic fragrances ever created.  An ultra sweet and citrusy opening quickly gives way to a crisp heart of orange blossom, bergamot and cinnamon.  Once you smell Homme, you never forget it and it instantly takes me back to my teens and first loves. That’s the power of wearing Joop’s most popular cologne: People will forever associate it with you. 

When To Wear – The definition of an ‘all-rounder’, splash it on and never have to worry about overkill.

Pour Homme by Dolce & Gabbana

With such pedigree and stately presentation,  Pour Homme from D&G really defines a legacy scent.  It debuted in 1994 and minted itself as a true classic on the spot.  It’s citrus-forward, with prominent neroli, bergamot, and mandarin notes and instantly takes me back to family holidays on the coastline of Spain and Italy.  And it plays a long game: Pour Homme lasts all day, and it wears well in every season.

When To Wear – ideal for the office, why not spritz this on your blazer for a fresh scent that will last all day long.
