As Part 3 of a special 5-Part series on the sexiest men’s fragrances to gift for Father’s Day, we speak to scent specialist Marian Bendeth of Sixth Scents and The Art of Fragrance for her absolute favourites.
MARIAN BENDETH, GLOBAL FRAGRANCE EXPERT, SIXTH SCENTS/THE ART OF FRAGRANCE
Terre d’Hermès by Hermès: “Smooth as Cognac, this incredible fragrance has a ‘Panther’ like quality that literally darts in the air. The stunning mix of cedar and vetiver hovers around the neck in the most discrete and desirable way.” EDT, $79 (50 ml), www.sephora.com
L’Hommage à l’Homme by Lalique: “If James Bond was born in Paris, he would have to be to wearing this fragrance when adjusting his cufflinks. This mixture of chili peppers, labdanum, saffron and dirty oud is like the perfect silencer gun: it shoots and devastates—but in a good way!” EDT, $125 (100 ml), www.lalique.com
Azzaro Pour Homme: “A veritable classic of sublime sensuality, this classic aromatic fougère hits the masculine target without too much chest hair. The fresh qualities of bergamot, lemon, petitgrain and basil meeting anise, oakmoss, fennel and ambergris, is intoxicating and highly distinguishable.” EDT, $66 (50 ml), www.thebay.com
