Dressing in a certain cologne has the ability to portray a protected form of self-expression, a means of displaying your inner persona through another’s sense of smell. An enduring scent requires vast amounts of precision and flawlessness in order to fully capture the character it is drenched in. Here, Men’s Passion have chosen their top four scents; colognes that transmit a message through their aroma, and which impinge on other’s senses in the same way your personality will.

The Power Of Allure
Launched in 2004, five years after the spicy woody ALLURE HOMME Fragrance, ALLURE HOMME SPORT EAU DE TOILETTE captures all the elements of a body in motion. A roundup of exhilarating sensations, it appeals to freestylers who can only conceive of sports in the great outdoors. A quest for well-being punctuated by fresh citrus fruit and sensuality with the amber tinge of sun-warmed skin. In 2007, ALLURE HOMME SPORT COLOGNE SPORT took the level of exertion up a notch. Energizing, vibrant, acute, it sets your heart racing and leaves you yearning to crank up the speed with a zesty impulse that accompanies the burst of Cedar vibrations. In 2012, ALLURE HOMME SPORT is pushing a new boundary with EAU EXTRÊME.
True to its origins, EAU EXTRÊME is a direct offshoot of ALLURE HOMME SPORT but with a decidedly more aromatic personality. Mint kicks things off from the very first scent, along with a refreshing pulsation upheld by Sicilian Mandarin rind and Moroccan Cypress. While not as spicy as the ALLURE HOMME SPORT EAU DE TOILETTE, the composition nevertheless calls upon Black Pepper from Madagascar, suggesting the muted and rhythmic beat that resonates in the chest.
