Store shelves are teeming with a huge selection of fragrances and there is a lot to offer. High-quality Eau De Toiletets and colognets are a sure choice for a man who wants a durable scent that smells just right on the skin. Manufacturers have a long tradition of making fragrances and it really senses these fragrances. Eau De Toilette has a milder percentage of fragrance concentrate than, for example, perfume, and Cologne is the lightest of these fragrances and contains the lowest percentage of odor. In the boutique, we wanted to collect a selection of fragrances that you won't find anywhere else in Finland and that offer both classic fragrances for gentlemen who want both classics and fresh modern fragrances for the modern wearer.

Jermyn Street tuoksut

Jermyn Street is definitely the most popular fragrance in the boutique and a great choice to give as a gift.

How do you recognize a quality scent?

High-quality scent lasts a long time on the skin. It only needs to be sprayed with a couple of sprays and it smells just right. What’s especially important about using scents is that it smells just a little bit, no one wants to smell the scent for miles and a quarter after you’ve left the building, no matter how good the scent is. So invest in quality, not quantity.

Perfumes have been used for a long time, for thousands of years. Our popular manufacturer is Floris, who was born almost 300 years ago when Juan Famenia Floris created his first fragrance and wrote instructions in his leather-bound book. More and more new recipes were written for that book, and today that book is stored in the vault of Floris on Jermyn Street in London. That book still serves as inspiration as Floris creates new scents, all of which pass under the nose of Edward Bodenham acceptable.

Although Floris' scents are Eau De Toilets and the percentage of scent concentrates is mild, it is still enough to cover the whole day. We tested Floris' scents and when we put on a couple of sprays in the morning, it still smells good on the skin even in the evening. Recognizing the quality of this property, the fragrance is made of orthodox good ingredients and therefore it stays on the skin for a long time.

Floris Londonin No. 89 Eau De Toilette is a traditional fragrance to which orange and bergamos, together with lavender and neroli, give it its classic cologne character. The fragrant nutmeg of the scent gives warmth to the floral heart scent. The base scent in this real gentleman’s scent is the dominant wood with hints of sandalwood, cedarwood and vetiver. The fragrance was introduced in 1951 and got its name from the location of the Floris store No. 89 Jermyn Street, London. This scent was also a personal favorite of James Bond author Ian Fleming.

Cefiro's fresh citrus scent is suitable for many and has been a very popular choice. It has a combination of fresh lemon and lime fortified with bergamot and mandarin. The scent of spice comes from cardamom and nutmeg as well as the floral heart scent. The warm scent of the base scent of wood and musk. The scent is suitably sweet but fresh enough and the scent is not too offensive. This is the lightest and most pleasing of Floris' scents. The same set also includes shower gel and deodorant.

Sandalwood is an absolute classic

The scent of sandalwood is by far the most fragrant. Others love it, and immediately sink into a world of stylish gentlemen in black and white film.Others find the scent too strong and spicy Sandalwood is the second most expensive tree in the world, and both wood and oil produce a distinctive scent that has been valued for centuries. The intake of sandalwood oil varies depending on the age and location of the wood, usually older trees produce the highest oil content and quality. Sandalwood oil has a characteristic soft, warm, smooth, creamy and milky precious metal aroma. The scent of sandalwood has also been used in shaving-related scents for a long time, almost all of the manufacturers' products have this classic scent processed into a product.

Floris London Santal is a fresh masculine scent with a bergamot, black pepper, cardamom, green grass and lemon in the first scent. The scent gets its warm and sensual character from the heart notes of carnation, lavender and nutmeg, accentuated by the base scent of amber, cedar, incense, musk, sandalwood and vanilla.

The cologne on Taylor of Old Bond Street is elegantly classic. It’s a real gentleman’s scent, featuring the history and traditions of Taylor of Old Bond Street. Definitely a choice for a man who likes more intense as well as spicy scents. However, this Cologne has managed to be kept suitably light, but the traditional scent of sandalwood still suits its rights. Sandalwood Cologne is a lighter option than the scent of Floris sandalwood Eau De Toilette, so if you are not sure about the scent of sandalwood, choose this one.

Cologne is a great choice for a light perfume

Cologne is a lighter option than Eau De Toilette. Cologne has an average of about 2-5% fragrance concentrate. Its duration on the skin is shorter than that of Eau De Toiletten but it is a good choice when the need for a long lasting fragrance is not necessarily all day long. We tested Taylor Of Old Bond Street colognes and surprisingly the scent was longer lasting than we expected.

Taylor of Old Bond Street is a brand whose wearer represents the classic style and quality awareness of a British gentleman. Taylor of Old Bond Street is a family business dating back to 1854. At that time, Jeremiah Taylor opened his salon on London’s famous Bond Street. Plant extracts made for Jeremiah quickly became popular and the story continued into the next generation, when Sidney Taylor opened his current main store on Jermyn Street in London.

The scent of Taylor of Old Bond Street’s Jermyn Street series is remarkably fresh. The series also includes e.g. deodorant and shower gel. In a boutique test, this fared best, that’s how good the bathroom smells after it needs this Jermyn Street shower soap scent! Absolutely easy scent also gives a man a gift and best of all, this can also be enjoyed by the spouse himself. This fragrance is an excellent choice for year-round use. This scent can't go wrong, as it is suitably light citrusy for use in the office, for example, and is also a great choice for a summer scent.

The main scents are bergamot, lemon, lime and lavender combined with iris, neroli, amber, musk and vanilla. Does not contain alcohol, so it is also suitable for sensitive skin.

Invest in small size and variety

Perfume can last for years, but when opened, it can start to deteriorate in a year. That's why it's a good idea to prefer small pack sizes. There are a few different types of perfumes, so you can always decide the scent of the day in the morning. It often gets used to the smell so that it no longer smells itself and there is a danger of overdoing it with dosing. When you use a few different perfumes on different days, you won’t get used to them so easily and you can also enjoy your scent yourself.

For different occasions, you should choose different scents when you go out to eat or go to the theater, the choice is definitely a classic scent that may be a little stronger. For the office, you should prefer lighter options that are not too strong and you will be able to consider your co-workers. Also be careful with dosing. Never mix scents when you choose a fragrance for the day, use a mild shower soap when washing, you should also be moderate with after shave, although it disappears from the skin faster than perfume, it may be too interesting a combination of fragrances at the beginning of the day. A sure choice is to choose fragrances from the same product family for all the products you need.

In the summer, the scents come to a real test when it gets warm during the day and the skin sweats. Prefers fresh and light scents in summer. Also consider the use of deodorant, if the deodorant has a very strong odor, it may mix uncomfortably with the smell of perfume when sweating. In winter, the scents may be stronger and more spicy. In winter, the scents get great on a frosty day, when you enter, the clothes smell fresh and the perfume comes out exclusively.
