Below I have listed some great fragrances that are definitely worth checking out.

Dare to declare. Have the audacity to tell all. Follow your instinct. This is one of my favourite fragrances at the moment. Twenty years on from Declaration Eau de Toilette, the avant-garde fragrance that became a calling card for men to signify their love, Mathilde Laurent, perfume creator for the Maison Cartier, lifts the veil on a new sensation. This perfume is strong as cedar and elegant as leather; voluptuous in its oriental tones; and has a composition that reads as a manifesto of intense and passionate declarations, enticing men to declare.

Bleu Noir is a sexy melange of spice and woods that feels as rugged as designer stubble. A pepper-soaked grapefruit note brings freshness, but it’s a sharp, warm and slightly sweaty kind of freshness that feels multi-faceted and more than just a little bit sexy. This clash between freshness and woody spice forms a large part of Bleu Noir’s signature, making for a bold wear.
