for him by Narciso Rodriguez


I’ve recently become a fan of for him by Narciso Rodriguez which is part of his Musc Collection. What I like about this scent is its subtly. It opens with a fresh floral burst but as it develops, it quiets to a intimate skin scent. Its not everyday I, and perhaps yourself, want to smell like leather, woods or spices. On those days, this is the ideal remedy.

In his own Mr. Rodriguez says, “Musk has always fascinated me…It captures a sensuality that I try to convey in all my work; it’s both raw and refined and has an uncanny ability to take on the personality of whoever wears it, like it’s naturally part of one’s skin.”

for him by Narciso Rodriguez will be available at Saks and other fine retailers in November.



Republic of Men by Banana Republic


If you’re in the media business, September is one of THE most important months of the year. TV show’s premiere, magazines go all out and cosmetic companies launch new products. If you’re a fragrance lover, it can be quite an exciting time as well.

A new fragrance worth checking out is Banana Republic’s Republic of Men. It is the embodiment of sophisticated masculinity. Sparkling clementine mingles with wet plum and dewy fig leaf. A modern aromatic ensemble of sambac, rosemary, basil, sage and freshly crushed hazlenut comprises the scent’s inviting heart, while the lasting signature of the fragrance lies in unique bottom notes of fresh sandalwood, cedarwood and creamy skin musks.

Republic of Men Eau Toilette is $45 (1.7fl. oz/50ml). I love the size. It’s a definite “must have” for your fall gym bag. You can find this gem exclusively at Banana Republic stores nationwide beginning September 2009.
