Four awesome manly scents to try out

In the market for a splash of scented water to wow the ladies but can’t be bothered to trawl around Orchard Road? Here are four crackers that won’t compromise your masculinity…


Armani Eau pour Homme
Great for:
 An all-day classic signature scent
The iconic men’s fragrance created in 1984 has notes of citrusy Sicilian mandarin, petitgrain, peppery coriander, rich spices and warms up to sandalwood – a classic Italian scent. $129 for 100ml. Armani.com

Jo Malone London Vetyver
Great for: A calming warm bear hug to sooth nerves
Base notes of the Asian plant vetiver blend harmoniously with bergamot, nutmeg and cedarwood. Comes in a sleek bottle too. $194 for 100ml, eau de cologne. jomalone.com.sg

Penhaligon’s Juniper Sling
Great for: The young at heart and drinks on a Friday
Inspired by London Gin, Juniper Sling is a crisp cocktail shot of gin, orange brandy, juniper berry, cardamom and base notes of brown sugar, black cherry and amber. $290 for 100ml, eau de toilette. penhaligons.com 

Ralph Lauren Polo Red
Great for: Athletic men looking for a sporty scent
Polo Red opens with red grapefruit and Italian cedrat before giving way to spicy red saffron, sage and a vibrant blend of redwood, amber and coffee berry. The bottle draws inspiration from the striking 1958 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa. $119 for 125ml, eau de toilette. ralphlauren.com

TOP TIP: Apply cologne at pulse points such as the base of your neck, insides of your wrists and your chest. It’s not a deodorant so don’t aim it at your armpit. Two to three sprays should be enough; any more is overkill.
