The Team Maketh – Top 5 Fragrances this season

It’s been a very good start for men’s fragrances this 2017, with the notes flying from every end of the aroma spectrum. As the months wade through quicker and quicker, we thought it was time to share what we’re dousing ourselves in this summer season.

Azzaro Chrome Pure

Recent one picked up, that I love so, so much. The perfect symbol of purity, Azzaro’s new fragrance Chrome Pure is full of explosive freshness, with a citrus-oriental-woody aroma. The bottle is immaculate white, which drives the inspiration of purity from its name.

Through the citrus-oriental-woody you’ll get the following scents:

Dawn: Mandarin

Zenith: Akigala wood

Dusk: Tonka bean


Ralph Lauren Polo Red Extreme

Ralph Lauren introduces their new fragrance Polo Red Extreme which is what they call their masculine scent, designed for the thrill seeker that pushes the limits and thrives on extreme sensations.

Its ingredients were hand selected by master perfumer Olivier Gillotin designed to channel the thrill of pushing limits and sensations to the extreme.

From a scent point of view:

Top Notes: Blood orange accord, red ginger, red pineapple accord.

Mid Notes: Black coffee essence, red saffron, red sage.

Base Notes: Black ebony wood accord, ambery woods accord, cocoa absolute.


Armani Code – Colonia

Dior Sauvage

Perfect for a summers evening Dior Sauvage is an incredible fragrance with an incredibly fresh composition.

Diesel Bad

Impressed me more than I anticipated, as diesel fragrances have been touch and go. But Diesel Bad has been a great one to keep by my side. The perfumers Anne Filipo and Carlos Benaim created ‘Bad’ to be for the game of seduction, starting with an exciting rush of citrus and cool spice notes.
