Metro Man & Metro Home

Alluring, fresh and contemporary, two of the leading names in fashion and fragrance, Azzaro and Dolce & Gabbana, have launched their newest colognes for men. Here is what today’s men are wearing to the office, on date night and every (extraordinary) day.

Clean, authentic and long-lasting, Chrome United by Azzaro is a scent created for the new generation man. The scent is woody and very masculine with key notes of bergamot, cedar wood and coriander. I found this scent clean, earthy and uplifting.

Created by perfumer Richard Ibanez, this cologne is linear, meaning that there are no top, mid and bottom notes. From the first spray the scent will sustain throughout the day.
Chrome United is now available at all major department stores.

Evoking the mystique of the Mediterranean, Dolce & Gabbana launch their latest in a series of scents for men: Light Blue. It’s inspired by the glamour, passion and days when the rich and famous like Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor and Cary Grant vacationed on the Isle of Capri, however, with a modern-day twist.

“We wanted to capture the electricity and the excitement of a love affair with a strong Mediterranean woman,” say Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.

I think this scent is alluring with a masculine base of incense and oak, and hints of pepper, rosemary and rosewood.

Light Blue is available at Bloomingdales and Saks’ Fifth Avenue.

I recommend these colognes for guys with a passion for life (and the women who love us).
