Five great scents to spritz this season

If you’re like us, fall is when we push the reset button, take on a new task and see the months stretching ahead as an opportunity to try something different. So adding a new cologne into your repertoire only seems fitting.

Here are five fantastic scents to help put you in a fall state of mind.

Calvin Klein, Obsessed EDT
This reinvention on one of the brand’s most iconic men’s fragrances Obsession is as replete with ’80’s history as it is an intimate new scent. Tart grapefruit squeezed into spicy Sichuan pepper and back cardamom open the eau, while warm cedar leaves, labdanum and blonde leather provide a sophisticated touch before easing into sensual patchouli, black vanilla infusion and ambrox. It’s available for $95 for 125 ml at Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.

Chanel, Pour Monsieur EDP
Intimate, woody and earthy, this incarnation of the original 1955 chypre cologne is oozing with aromatic lavender, fresh lemon and vetiver, spicy nutmeg and smooth vanilla. Understated and masculine, this chic parfum gives its predecessor a new and modern take on a classic scent. It’s available for $116 for 75 ml at Nordstrom stores across Canada.

Dolce & Gabbana, Light Blue Eau Intense Pour Homme EDP
This magnetic scent is one part fresh and cool like the Mediterranean Sea, another hot and sensual like the sands of Capri. Refreshing mandarin and frozen grapefruit give the eau a chilled citrus effect before being stirred into a sea of aromatic juniper and salty aquatic accord. Vibrant amber woods and sultry musk give the eau its powerful, intimate finish. It’s available for $84 for 50 ml, $155 for 100 ml and $155 for 200 ml at Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart and Sephora stores across Canada.

Hugo Boss, Boss Bottled Tonic EDT
Think of it as a throw back to your past and the original Boss Bottled in 1998, but with a citrus twist. Zesty and refreshing notes of grapefruit, bitter orange, lemon and apple are initially revealed, while an infusion of spicy ginger and cinnamon quickly heat things up. The collection’s DNA of vetiver and wood give the scent its signature and an elegant and inviting finish. It’s available for $78 for 50 ml and $97 for 100 ml at Sephora online and at Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.

Shawn Mendes, Signature EDT
The Canadian “Mercy” singer’s first foray into fragrance is a gender-free one with his Signature scent. Spicy and woody the eau is layered with fruit, sugar and cream. Notes of lemon, pineapple and apple are mix-mastered into a sweet blend of frangipani and rose flowers with maple sugar before drying down into a sultry combination of white cedar, dolce de leche and skin musk. It’s available for $39.50 for 30 ml, $49.50 for 50 ml, $59.50 for 100 ml online at www.shawnsignature.com and at Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.
