Georgio Armani – Si Passione Red

The fragrance for women by Giorgio Armani, unleashes the empowered, feminine passion of the Sì woman. The limited ediMon Sì Passione Red Maestro allows each woman to assert who she really is and to liberate the power of passion. A floral fruity fragrance structured around blackcurrant, rose, and vanilla, enriched with jasmine accord and musky notes.


Trussardi – Uomo

Belonging to a typically masculine olfactive family: woody fougère. Head notes have the fresh Italian elegance of lemon, bergamot, galbanum, and nutmeg. Within the heart notes is the refined virile blend of clary sage, geranium and violet. The apotheosis of sensuous strength arrives with the base notes of patchouli and musk and leather accords.


Missguided – Babe Night

This intoxicating new fragrance opens with citrus notes of lemon, orange and green apple and develops with heady accords of orange blossom, jasmine and spicy pink pepper. Base notes of musky vanilla, cedar and patchouli make Babe Night the ultimate scent to take you from day into the evening.


Pepe Jeans – Celebrate for Him

Pepe Jeans Celebrate for Him exhibits sensual freshness by combining the aromatic potency of juniper and cardamom with subtle notes of gin. The combination concludes with a surprising and seductive extract of cocoa. A touch of elegance is achieved via a final caress of clary sage absolute and a hint of amber woods, delivering a potent, intense fragrance designed to accompany life’s most seductive moments.


Jean Paul Gautier Le Male

Jean Paul Gaultier pays tribute to a symbolic figure who has long been a great source of inspiration of him; the sailor. Le Mâle aftershave for men is as virile as it is sexy. Lavender, evoking the familiar, comforting scent of shaving soap is enhanced by the sensuality of vanilla.


Moschino Toy 2

This perfume holds a sparkling vivacity of mandarin and granny smith apples which are accompanied by delicate floral notes of magnolia. In the middle, elegant jasmine petals are enhanced by the smooth tones of peony and crisp fruity scents of white currant. This is followed by earthy base notes of amber wood and sandalwood, which express an enveloping, sensual depth to the women’s fragrance.
