Celebrate invigorating, gender-bending interpretations of some of our favourite classic perfumes this month. Hello Tom Ford, Issey Miyake and Mont Blanc.
The 1994 classic Issey Miyake L’eau d’Issey Pour Homme gets a fresh update with the latest interpretation from the brand. The original was created as a wear-everywhere cologne, perfect for any occasion. The update? Grapefruit, cardamom, sage, lavender, white patchouli and vetiver all combine for an earthy and aromatic take on the original woody citrus.

Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino is a fragrance that enjoys a bit of a cult following. It’s fresh, it’s citrus, it’s aquatic, it’s lush, and everyone we’ve asked can’t get enough of it. (Those provocative ad campaigns don’t hurt the demand either.) It’s no surprise then that we’re eagerly anticipating Tom Ford’s new addition to the NP collection—Neroli Portofino Forte.
The introduction of ingredients like leather and woods adds intensity to the much-loved formula’s citrus top notes and floral heart. Love the original? You might want to do some comparison spritzing here. This one is definitely worth getting your hands on.

Mont Blanc Legend (released in 2011) is a fresh fougere—aromatic and earthy. The newest addition to the collection, Mont Blanc Legend Spirit, adds to that heritage with notes of grapefruit, bergamot and musk. The result? A bit of spice, a bit of sweet and very fresh.
