The energy of floral accords pulses through the heart with rich sensuality, while the warmth brings a mineral splash to generate electric freshness. The dry down of jasmine is enhanced by the scent of vetiver and blends with the lush sandalwood and musk.

CK2 comes in a swanky transparent glass container. The minimalistic design blends together the essence of both the sexes in a sleek upside-down bottle oozing with major CK charm.Calvin-Klein-CK2-Fragrance

MIU MIU TO RELEASE ITS FIRST EVER FRAGRANCE

miu-miu_first_fragrance_stacy

Exciting news for fragrance fans! Miuccia Prada launched Miu Miu in 1993, as the younger, more playful and quirky sister to her main brand, Prada. A little more than two decades later and they’ve finally announced their first ever perfume, which will officially release in September of this year, exclusively at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman’s. Online shopping, HELLO. The face of the new fragrance is the gorgeous French-English actress Stacy Martin, and the photographer of the advertising campaign is Steven Meisel.

Apparently, this newbie focuses on lily of the valley supported by notes of jasmine, rose and green notes, as well as a special ingredient called akigalawood, which imbues the scents of patchouli, pepper and oud. The fragrance will be available as 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum accompanied with perfumed body care products (shower gel, body lotion, body cream) and we can’t wait to get our hands on that amazing, almost retro looking turquoise flacon!

CARLSBERG LAUNCHES A BEAUTY SERIES FOR MEN

Carlsberg

So, if we’re going to talk about this seriously and scientifically, Carlsberg has stated facts about its lager, which is full of barley, hops and yeast that are essentially bursting with vitamin B and silicium. Both are said to be great for the skin and hair. You could also basically read this and compute: beer is good for you. You know we did!

Kidding aside, in one of the best bits of news we’ve heard all month, Carlsberg has put forth a limited edition range of male grooming products — shampoo, conditioner and body lotion — and each product in this Beer Beauty series contains 0.5 litres of real Carlsberg beer. We have GOT to get our hands on this!

Johnny Depp Dior

So, the House of Dior just released a statement (via their Instagram page) stating that Johnny Depp’s going to be the face of a new men’s fragrance, as of September. Basically, you know it’s going to be smokin’. Since it’s Monday, and you’re probably drowning in coffee trying to assuage the blues, we thought— let’s make you feel a bit better. In a manner that honours this news about his Royal Depp-ness as well. Put down that cappuccino because this is going to perk you up a hell of a lot more.

We, citizens of My Envy Box, present to you, our official “Happy Monday, The Top 5 Hottest Male Fragrance Campaigns.” AKA — gorgeous actors in even more gorgeous fragrance advertisements. Just so you know, this is no particular order of bodaciousness, and there’s no David Beckham, because he isn’t an actor, like our Johnny is.

Carry on, ladies and gentlemen.
