Gentlemen, if you’re about to get married (congratulations!) and you’re reading this, we have a little advice for you.

And because we’re kind, we’re also sharing some unisex options for you to perfume as a duo.

The Mildest: Musc Outreblanc – L’Art & la Matière, Guerlain

A true silky caress, this eau de parfum by Delphine Jelk revolves around a harmony of white musk, neroli, and ambrette.. This clean and velvety scent is brightened by the vibrant notes of orange blossom, Bulgarian rose, and iris pallida. A floral bouquet that then merges into the comforting scent of white amber and sandalwood. The result is a direct and sensual fragrance, merging with the powdery scent of the skin. For an even more exclusive wedding gift, note that Guerlain has developed a collection called “Les Pièces d’Exception,” composed of limited edition vintages, housed in bottles that double as works of art. Among them, the Muguet and Cherry Blossom eau de toilette, available in limited editions of 3000 and 5000 pieces, respectively. Also, the Bouquet de la mariée extract, available in only 10 collector’s bottles.

The Most Indulgent : Vanilla Diorama – Collection Privée Christian Dior

This intense and warm perfume pays homage to the Diorama Gourmand, one of Christian Dior’s favorite desserts, specially created for him by the restaurant,  Maxim’s. Although there are no images or descriptions of this pastry, we know that it features vanilla with a hint of  orange. Vanilla Diorama magnifies a warm bourbon vanilla from Madagascar, accented with rum and patchouli, enveloping it in warm cocoa notes. A gourmet heart, enlivened by the zesty freshness of an orange slice and a few drops of lemon. A nuanced scent. 

Price: around 2900 DH. Available on dior.com

The Most Floral: Argentina – Memo Paris

As usual, the niche brand Memo Paris takes us on a journey to new destinations with its precious scents. As the name suggests, the Argentina eau de parfum takes us into the heart of  this Latin American country, characterized by a passionate tango, the dance of love. Like two bodies sizing each other up, the fragrance opens with the dynamic notes of pink pepper. These are quickly enveloped completely in Turkish rose and jasmine. Finally, ambrette seeds and Oud are added to the composition, bringing warmth and gentleness to the scent. A sensual wedding gift that might inspire you for your honeymoon destination… 

Price: 2600 DH per 75 ml bottle

The Most Cypriot: 31 Rue Cambon – Les Exclusifs de Chanel

It is the elegance and timelessness of Chanel that the perfumer Jacques Polge wanted to convey with 31 Rue Cambon. Warm, elegant, and somewhat retro, this cyprian fragrance opens with the zesty notes of bergamot and black pepper. These soften upon contact with a floral bouquet composed of iris, ylang-ylang, and rose. All of this mingles with patchouli, offering an amber, almost leathery base. Simple and powerful at the same time. 

Around 4200 DH for a 200 ml bottle

Unisex Fragrances

The Most Sensual: Indigo Tanzanite – Armani Privé

Through its “Les Terres Précieuses” collection, Armani draws inspiration from cultures, atmospheres, and traditions from around the world to create high-fashion olfactory creations. After India and Russia, the house takes us to the heart of Africa with Indigo Tanzanite and Magenta Tanzanite. According to legend, the blue-violet tanzanite stone appeared after a storm, as lightning struck the plains of Tanzania near Mount Kilimanjaro and set the savannah on fire. Giorgio Armani was inspired by this African gem. Here, the fragrance opens with a fresh bergamot essence and a blend of almond. Enveloping and luminous notes that are quickly darkened by a warm and sensual base of patchouli, resin, labdanum, and Tolu balm. A chiaroscuro scent that is highly contrasting yet ultra-sensual, making it a unique wedding gift. 

Price: 3112 DH per 100 ml bottle
Available in select perfumeries or on armani.com

The Most Woody: Baccarat Rouge 540 – Maison Francis Kurkdjian

A perfume creator behind numerous international successes (Le Mâle by Jean-Paul Gaultier, For Her by Narciso Rodriguez, Rose Barbare by Guerlain…), and director of perfume creation at Dior since 2021, Francis Kurkdjian also heads his own eponymous perfumery . Among the brand’s most acclaimed products, Baccarat Rouge 540 gained unprecedented popularity in 2022 thanks to TikTok. With nearly 6 million Google searches, 110 million TikTok views, and 200,000 Instagram posts, it became the most searched-for perfume on the web that year. It must be said that this fragrance cannot be ignored. Born from the collaboration between Maison Francis Kurkdjian and the Baccarat crystal workshop, this eau de parfum draws inspiration from the craft of glass blowing. To translate melting crystal, airy jasmine and spicy saffron notes blend with mineral facets of ambergris and woody cedar. The result is a luminous and refined scent, full of character. 

Price: 6300 DH for a 200 ml bottle

The Most Virile: Haltane – Parfums de Marly

Here’s a creation that’s completely masculine but can also serve as a wedding gift for your beloved. Especially if she’s a strong woman. Inspired by the gentlemen of the Château de Marly in the 18th century, Haltane is an original fragrance full of duality. Its herbaceous top notes, composed of clary sage, lavender, and bergamot, offer a very fresh introduction. The heart of the fragrance then becomes smoother with a praline blend, highlighted by a touch of saffron. Cedar emerges as the base note, offering the fragrance a soft and delicate side, as well as the impression of warm leather. A very modern creation. 

Price: 3280 DH for a 125 ml bottle
