WARM & FUZZY. One of the more interesting aspects of men’s fragrances is that they can contain unexpected ingredients. Case in point: Black pepper
Known for its slightly bitter and spicy flavor, black pepper lends a warm yet manly nuance to a fragrance. Take Salvatore Ferragamo’s Uomo, which opens up with sweet notes along with the scent of cardamom before revealing its intensely spicy aroma.
A more potent mix with a citrusy infusion is unraveled by the blue-bottled cedro di Taormina from Acqua di Parma.
Fit for a classy evening fragrance, owing to a woody and less spicy black pepper combo, is the Jimmy Choo Intense.
But dandy modern gentlemen who live life ever curiously should fall head over heels for the heady aromatic spices of the Icon Elite by Dunhill London.
