Some days, we do want to look and smell ala-Ryan Bingham (a.k.a. George Clooney) from Up in the Air: the suitcase and suit-wearing, clean-cut and white teeth-grinning traveler. Add a dash of cool composure and the women will follow suit. [firstpara]
Good thing ST Dupont, renowned manufacturer of men’s luxury items, has a core business men of all ages could invest in: the fine art of traveling in style.
In simpler terms, Dupont’s line of products pretty much makes da man: fountain pens, expensive lighters, collector’s watches, and designer wallets of the finest quality.
But more and more, its fragrance line is garnering positive reception from men than any other Dupont creation for settling for the best scents coming from the most talented of perfumers.
A year after the successful release of ST Dupont Intense Pour Femme and Homme series comes the Essence Pure ICE for Men and Essence Pure ICE for Women.
Essence Pure ICE for Men is best described in three words: fresh, woody, and marine. Designed by Natalie Cetto-Gracia, this fragrance is a tonic and colorful cocktail. Its citrus head note entwines lime, green tangerine, and grapefruit. Trust us; the smell of masculinity prospers here.
There are three different sizes to this natural spray – 30ml for Php1,900.00, 50ml natural spray for Php2,400.00, and the 100ml for Php3,300.00.
But never go home to your lady love without her fair share of fragrance. The Essence Pure ICE for Women, designed by Anne Flipo, unleashes a delicate scent of light fruits, sensing the smell of watermelon, frosty bergamot, and tangerine which can bring out the energy on hot lazy days.
It is also available in three sizes – 30ml (Php1,800.00), 50ml (Php2,800.00) and 100 ml (Php3,800.00).
ST Dupont is also celebrated for investing in the fragrance’s packaging – the bottles highlight a pure and lean design that stands out against bright electric colors.
The Essence Pure ICE series has a glass volume that appears to be carved out of a block of ice. Each bottle has two frosted sides: acid green for the muscular fragrance and bright orange for its feminine counterpart.
We know for sure that it pays to look and smell good, but the swagger that comes with it as you travel: as priceless as your newly-laminated man card. Bring it everywhere you go!
