Pine and leather. Imagine these two scents amalgamated into one fragrance. An eau de toilette for him, but in an extreme version. That said, because this elixir smells both completely natural and animalistic, its intensity is far from shocking. (We must admit, seeing a handsome man wearing such a scent can make us weak in the knees!) Woodsy aromas that maintain a nice freshness, but which also lose a bit of their subtlety in this reinterpretation, are certainly going to ramp up our summer fever! In short, this masculine bottle is our favourite of the moment.
Bottega Veneta Pour Homme Extrême, $90 (50mL) and $120 (90mL) at Hudson’s Bay and Holt Renfrew.
