Gift Guide: 6 Men’s Fragrances For Every Occasion


The holiday shopping season is among us, which means it’s time to start thinking gifts. Continuing Vee Travels’ gift guide series, this week covers six great men’s fragrances to use in different occasions and situations:

Make A Statement: Odin’s 11 Semma


Recently released from the New York boutique Odin, the 11 Semma is vibrant, but not overpowering. Using  a concoction of chile pepper, clove, myrrh, cinnamon and tobacco leaf, Odin’s 11 Semma offers a sweet, woodland masculine and feminine scent that is perfect for man (or a woman as it is unisex) who wants to stand out. (3.4 oz, $165, Odin)

Vacation Refresher: James Bond 007 Ocean Royale


When James Bond comes to mind, there are a number of ocean and Caribbean scenes to recall, which is why the icon’s fragrance brand went with the sea for the inspiration of the 007 Ocean Royale. The user will feel refreshed when the bergamot, lime, anise and seaweed accord touches his skin, then the Jamaican woods take over to get the user even more vacation ready. (1.7 oz, $40,

Date Night: Armani Code


This Giorgio Armani fragrance is a smooth, sexy blend that is perfect to make your significant other smell irresistible. Armani Code combines bergamot and lemon with hints of orange tree blossom, warmed wood and tonka bean. (2.5 oz, $77, Giorgio Armani)

Everyday Modern: Perry Ellis for Men


Perry Ellis’ latest fragrance for men is simply named after the brand and designer himself. It features a fresh, woodland scent from a mix of bitter orange citrus, mint, cedar wood, lavender, and spices such as cardamom, coriander and clary sage. Not too light nor too strong, it’s perfect for both work and play. (3.4 oz, $65, Perry Ellis)

Daily Bold: Marc Ecko Green


Not overpowering but slightly strong, the scent of Marc Ecko Green is a deep and rich of land and sea. Crisp pineapple leaves and paradise apple are completed with bold woods and nutmeg, giving the user’s senses a little jolt in the morning. (3.4 oz $27,

Evening Flirter: Lacoste Noir


I previously praised the Lacoste Blanc for its fruity attributes. The Noir takes it a step further for a sexy light fragrance both the wearer and those around him will love.  Watermelon, basil and lavender top off a musky cashmeran, coumarin and chocolate base. Noted that it’s great for warmer weather, it suits nicely for the cocktail hour in any climate. (3.3 oz, $65, Lacoste)
