1. One Sweet Guy
Something for the fellas: Armani has introduced its newest men’s fragrance, the Code Profumo, now with the face of Chris Pine. Packaged in a sleek amber cylindrical bottle, the fragrance is inspired by the elegance of an Armani tuxedo—and the instant attraction it draws to the man wearing it. The base note of this woody fragrance is of sweet tonka bean, with a touch of crisp green apple and cardamom to balance it out with freshness. Wish your guy would suit up more? Maybe this is an apt gift to throw the hint. $680 for 60ml. Giorgio Armani Beauty, Shop 109, Chater House, 8 Connaught Rd. Central, 2532-7733


2. Midnight Rain
For a dark, seductive scent, Jo Malone’s brand new Black Cedarwood and Juniper is a modern, sexy take on its classic delicate British stylings. It’s got notes of black cedarwood and juniper to create the scent of nighttime rain, with a touch of cumin and chili leaves to spice it up. From $580 for 30ml. Jo Malone, various locations including Shop 137, Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Admiralty, 2918-4865

3. Faraway Smells
Atelier Cologne has launched its second and third bottles of its Collection Orient, which is inspired by travels in Asia and the Middle East. The Philtre Ceylan tells a story of destined love with its woody, citrus scent, and the Poivre Electrique embodies the spirit of adventure with peppery notes from around the world. From $1,950 for 100ml. Atelier Cologne, Shop 1008, 1/F, IFC Mall, 8 Finance St., Central, 2344-0770
