Next up I have Aaron Terence Hughes Hard Candy – Described as a ‘naughty fragrance for boys and girls who have overindulged and need to go and sit in the corner and think about what they have done!’ Hard Candy is my second purchase from Aaron Terence Hughes, and not at all what I was expecting! It’s incredibly sweet and almost zingy with notes of of lemon, sweet orange and mandarin, blended with hard boiled sweets – there’s also indulgent edible notes of vanilla pineapple cake and strawberry candy strings, vanilla cream, as well as MDMA sprinkles – I’m not sure on the last one there but either way I can tell you this is a fantastic scent, my husband loves it! I should say I was expecting this to be more unisex, but to me at least this leans very masculine. It’s a must try for fans of the brand!

And last but not least – Armani Stronger With You Freeze. This is a citrus woody fougere scent from 2020, that’s clean, fresh and radiant. Another crowd-pleaser from Armani, that’s described as ‘an elegant and intensely fresh fragrance for men who live for the present moment’. Stronger With You Freeze opens with top notes of fresh and zesty lime, that develop into a heart of sage and lavender. The fragrance is rounded off with a masculine drydown of warm amber and woody notes.
