L’Occitane en Provence

Out of all the things I’m passionate about in life, personal fragrance is probably very close to the top of the list. I adore beautiful scents and the idea of having a unique, signature men’s perfume people recognise. Scent is such a powerful thing. It’s something that you remember people by and can bring memories to the surface. Scents are also great for adding a touch of personality to the situation and environment you’re in. My daytime scent is totally different to my evening fragrance. I tend to go for very fresh, vibrant and wearable scents while I’m at work. You don’t want something too overpowering for meetings and sitting amongst colleagues. On evenings, I go for something a lot more sensual, sexy and mysterious. But today, I’m talking about daytime scents, and most importantly fragrance for in the office.

Personal hygiene at work is essential for me and at the top of personal hygiene is smelling good! I ALWAYS carry a small can of deodorant in my bag, along with chewing gum, back up chewing gum, hand sanitizer and most importantly, a cologne. Today, I have a new favourite of mine that’s become an absolute desk essential at work and at home. It’s something I carry around in my laptop bag, and ultimately would be the perfect gift for any man – brother, dad, uncle, grandad or boyfriend.


“A fragrance that combines vibrant, aquatic and citrus notes with an intriguing base of woody spices.”



“Refreshing, masculine and full of character”


The L’Occitane L’Homme Cologne Cedrat is perfect for this time of year. Why? Well entering Summer means fresh, vibrant scents with a touch of woodiness. I’m no expert perfumer, but I can tell you that sitting in the top notes which is the first impression of scent you get once sprayed is Cedrat, Mint and Pink Pepper. Instantly you can smell the spice from this, but as the fragrance sinks in, you really start to smell notes of ginger. Ginger adds an additional layer of spice to the fragrance.

Finally, after an hour or so of the cologne on your skin, notes of Cedar, Musk and Amber Wood start to come through, really sticking around for a while making it last all day through my 8 hour days at work.

It’s perfect for the office, unique, fragrant yet not overpowering. It’s crazy how many people have asked what I’m wearing, and the matching shower gel is perfect for that additional long lasting scent. A shower on the morning with the L’Homme Cologne Cedrat Shower Gel Body & Hair is just divine. If you’re stuck for a gift this Father’s Day, I can assure you both the cologne and shower gel will impress the man of the house!
