1. Prada Luna Rossa Sport EDT, from $90.
Inspired by the world of extreme sailing, Prada's new men's scent is fresh yet powerful - making it ideal for the hot summer nights ahead. The notes are on the unusual side: ginger and juniper berries, tobacco-inflected tonka bean, vanilla and a hint of lavender.
2. Narcisco Rodriguez For Him Bleu Noir EDT, from $99.
It's all in the name - blue Atlas cedar and black ebony wood give this masculine fragrance its depth, balanced by fresh green notes and cardamom and nutmeg for a spicy yet sharp, clean yet sexy scent.
3. Balmain Homme EDT, from $90.
Okay first, the bottle. Inspired by military garb, with metallic epaulettes against inky blue glass, we were seduced by the design before we so much as sniffed what's inside. But the scent delivers - it's a woody oriental with notes of saffron, nutmeg, cedar wood and moss, with bergamot and violet leaf thrown in for a fresh, fruity accord.
4. Paco Rabanne 1 Million Mens cologne, from $85.
The iconic gold bullion has been reimagined in a new transparent design that hints at the fresh fragrance within. It's a warm, definitively masculine aroma with spicy leather notes lightened by mandarin, rose and juniper berries.
5. Salvatore Ferragamo Acqua Essenziale Colonia EDT, from $85.
Balancing sparkling citrus notes with woody undertones, Acqua Essenziale Colonia is fresh and light - sign up for this scent for spring. We've got contemporary aquatic accords heightened by bergamot and orange blossom, rounded out by clary sage, lavender, vetiver and tonka bean.
