Metro Man & Metro Home

By Yasmin Jorge

We’re enjoying wonderful Fall weather and anticipating the festivities ahead. To match the colorful leaves adorning the trees, our men are decking themselves out in their cooler weather best, including sumptuous heavier coats, blazers, hats, scarves, and more. They look so delectable and strong, and they’re wearing fragrances that compliment that feeling.

I just might take a playful bite of these toasty hotties, like my favorite pumpkin pie. Who cares about calories. Ladies, you’ll want to stand close to your men when they spritz on these refined yet relaxed colognes:

One of my favorite designers, for my husband, is John Varvatos, so I was excited to try his new scent John Varvatos USA. While Rich usually likes my edgier clothing selections for him, he hates my fragrance choices. Not the case here. This is an intoxicating contradictory scent that works: sophisticate and rebel, seasoned pro and optimist youth, financial wizard and wolf. Whatever the scenario, I want this guy
at my Thanksgiving table!

John Varvatos USA stirs up the sixth sense. Top notes include red ginger essence from Laos, juniper berries, and cedrat from Sicily. Mid notes are heart notes of blue spruce, green cardamon absolute, and osmanthus absolute. Base notes are vetyvert, belambre, and tonka bean from Venezuela. My mouth is watering and I haven’t even picked up the fork yet.

The fragrance is available at prestige department stores worldwide.

ROCAWEAR EVOLUTION is another tasty and masculine new fragrance offering. For ambitious, stylish and smart men who can hang with the boys and know what their women want, this is a charismatic scent that transitions well from boardroom to blacktop to family dinners. Unexpected vibrant notes include: rum doused with mandarin, mango and rhubarb; centered with a soothing blend of coffee, incense and nutmeg at the heart; and dried down with sultry musks, woody amber and warm tonka bean. Lucky gals get to embrace these yummy sensuous males.

ROCAWEAR EVOLUTION is available at department stores such as Macy’s and online at Macys.com.

Fresh and savory, Usher brings a scent also easily wearable from day to night. It bursts open with verbena, pineapple and melon. The mid notes linger on skin with the warmth and sensuality of blue lavender, white pepper, and violet leaf. Grounding soft notes are vertiver, amber wood, black suede, sandalwood, musk, and guaiac wood. The effect is addictive, like those delicious fruity tarts you can’t pass up at parties.

Usher is youthful and festive, available at department stores nationwide.

An oldie but still a goodie, Curve for Men is invigorating and always masculine. The crisp scent captures the cool days of Fall and the energy of the holiday season. Curve is an example of a classic fragrance appealing to generations – both my father and young son enjoy it. Curve is unique as it includes notes of lively cactus, green leaf, lavender, ginseng and more; with exotic warm mahogany, sandalwood, and black pepper, among other notes. When the men in my life wear this cologne, I think of respect, honesty, and possibilities, if that makes any sense.

Curve for Men is available at fine retailers.
