Introduced in 2004, two years after its feminine counterpart which was and continues to be quite popular, Vera Wang for Men is a woody spicy “irresistible fragrance that becomes the signature of the man who wears it” ( the quote is taken from the official website’s description). Moreover, like in the case of its feminine version, the perfume was created for the men who are about the get married.
The first time I had a chance to sniff Vera Wang for Men was in 2008 and since then I continued to sample it on different occasions, even thought of buying, however the thought never materialized. Vera Wang for Men is characterized by a subtle elegance and a seductive masculinity that makes it the ideal choice for the situations in which you do not want to show off, yet remain stylish.
The structure of Vera Wang for Men is emphasizing on yuzu (the Japanese citrus) as the dominant note, shaping a true classic, which remains faithful to the minimalism of the Nippon tradition. The scent opens with a blend of the aforementioned yuzu and mandarin leaf, which constitutes a preparation for the upcoming aromas. Later, in no more than 20 minutes Vera Wang for Men enters the mid development stage, in which the anise and the spicy nutmeg are wrapped in the warm and personal aroma of leather. The base notes are tobacco and sandalwood, aimed to confer a charismatic trail to the construction.
Vera Wang for Men comes in a bottle comparable to its feminine counterpart and characterized by a minimalist style. The transparent glass reveals a whisky-like shaded liquid and everything is topped by an elegant stopper that looks as if was made from wood.
