With autumn ushering in, we cannot escape that cold breeze and we're optimising, trying to find some source of warmth. One thing we cannot deny is the sexy smell of manly woody fragrances with an underlying oriental scent of warmth and spices. A woody fragrance smells like nature. Like hard work. Like adventure. Like… well, a man should smell! Strong, rich and earthy, we’ve chosen our five favourite woody-oriental compositions that embody modern masculinity.

A woody-oriental fragrance with fruity nuances that ‘separates the men from the boys’, is the third fragrance from Baldessarini.
