We put together a list of newly launched perfumes for men that are sure to boost your confidence and a list of five bathing bars with exotic ingredients — that have just hit the shelves
Phy launches a new range of perfumes aimed at men who take smelling good seriously. There’s Phy Black with notes of oud and leather; Phy Social with notes of mint and mandarin; and Phy Active with notes of musk and lily.

Refreshing, masculine and full of character, the new Cap Cedrat Eau de Toilette from L’Occitane en Provence blends citrus notes of cedrat with icy notes of mint and woody spices. With cedrat, mint and pink pepper as top notes; ginger and violet lead as middle notes; and cedar, musk and amber wood as base notes — the perfume works for all occasions and is already quite the favourite.

Ultimate Amber is a brand new eau de parfum from Kelyn Naturals and accompanies their previous release Classic Blue. With basic notes including vanilla, patchouli, labdanum, styrax, benzoin, amber and tonka wood; the heart notes comprise sandalwood, vetiver and pepper. The top notes are cardamom, agarwood and rosewood; and the perfume works well for evenings out or the perfect spritz right after a shower. INR 549 onwards. kelynnaturals.com
These brand new eaux de parfum from Snitch add to their list of well-loved perfumes that were launched just a few months ago. There’s Wildfire with woody, earthy and citrus notes; while their other new offering, The Night, is warm, ethereal and divine with the amber wood being one of the base notes. The range also includes Freedom, Deepest Wish and Daydream, their earlier released bestsellers. INR 1,199 onwards. snitch.co.in
Neesh releases two new perfumes for men. Inspired by the character of James Bond, Oriental Leather by Neesh seems to be a soapy leather fragrance at first, but slowly brings in spicy notes like oud and patchouli. There’s also Glazed Water, an all-weather, all-occasion extrait de parfum that has an aquatic, fruity, ambery, spicy and musky scent. INR 4,100. neeshperfumes.com
