Man Wood – New Men’s Colognes and Fragrances 2011

Global warming has even had an impact on colognes for men. Last year we saw the diminishing of vetiver based, light and invigorating fragrances and the stampede of warm woody scents were making their footprint in Bvlgari Man, Bleu de Chanel, Comme des Garcon’s Wonderwood, Dsquared2 He Wood, Kenzo Homme Woody and Marc Jacob’s Bang. In 2011, warm woody fragrances have virtually taken over the new releases for men’s scents, like lantana on a mission.

Whether it is the global, financial or fashion atmosphere that is affecting perfumers it can’t be overlooked that colognes for men are taking on a traditional masculine note. Perhaps the light and sporty atmosphere of the past decades that has played homage to citrus and floral scents are coming to a close, temporarily that is. Trends as we all know come and go and are resurrected and re-concocted to suit the next infiltrate of followers.

The late 1950’s and 60’s with its iconic Old Spice and Tabac colognes was when we last saw woods at the helm of traditional colognes for men. Now timber of all forms including cedar wood, mahogany wood, pistachio tree resin, amber resin, sandalwood, driftwood, Tahitian wood, king wood, dry wood, wormwood and tropical wood are the foundation of the new formulations. But like all trends there is a twist, the wood base notes have new companions added to them to bring them up to the twenty first century.

Rare flowers, fruits, herbs and exotic oddities have been included to emancipate the traditional masculine aroma. Some interesting ingredients for the new men’s releases are green apple liqueur in The Golden Secret by Antonio Banderas, green prickly pear in Aqva Pour Homme MarineToniq by Bvlgari, lime caviar and vodka in 212 VIP Men by Carolina Herrera, cashmere musk in Marc Jacobs Bang Bang, salty surf in Puma Jam, Pisco brandy in Playboy London, ozone in YSL L’Homme Cologne Gingembre, yuzu in L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Eau d’Eté, red bull accord in CK One Shock and gingerbread in D&G Le Fou.

While we reflect and analysis the shift of masculine sensibilities there is perhaps a more basic economic reason to why major corporations support the fragrance choices. Corporations whether designer or beauty based are working towards conquering relatively untapped markets such as Russia and China, so it is logical for the colognes for men, to base formulations key to their market buying power. Woody fragrances in these markets are what the majority of the consumers want and with a population of over 1.5 billion, is a market not to be ignored. Also autumn and winter releases in the Northern Hemisphere give higher financial results than spring and summer and with warm woody fragrances suiting the climate of the release time it seems logical to release fragrances that the consumer can relate to immediately. With anything fashion orientated, trends are not based totally on reason, but like fashion, colognes for men are to be enjoyed and this year the new releases give a lot to the consumer to take in and relish.
