A few days ago, The Perfume Academy held a gala in Madrid to deliver the awards that reward the six best perfumes of the year in their respective categories. A jury made up of beauty experts and celebrities such as Boris Izaguirre, Susanna Griso or Dario Barrio was in charge of choosing the winning fragrances. 'Black Seduction' in the Consumer Goods category, 'Agua Brava' in Classic Perfume, and Allure Home in the Selective category, were chosen as the best men's fragrances.
'Black Seduction' by Antonio Banderas was awarded as 'Best Mass Consumer Fragrance for Men'. The latest fragrance championed by the Malaga actor incorporates top notes such as bergamot and currant, and a heart dominated by spices, such as cardamom or nutmeg. Its base is revealed of oriental inspiration thanks to amber, cedar wood, tonka and musk.
'Agua Brava' by Puig has obtained this year the 'Special Award for the Best Classic Male Perfume'. A classic of Christmas, this eau de cologne stands out for its citrus freshness, which finds its contrast in notes such as rosemary, bay leaf, pine or carnation.
The award for 'Best Selective Male Fragrance' has gone to 'Allure Homme Édition Blanche' by Chanel. It is a fresh, oriental-inspired fragrance that opens with notes of black pepper and pink Madagascar pepper. Its heart is dominated by essences of leather, Sicilian lemon, bergamot and sandalwood and its closure incorporates exotic notes of Brazilian tonka, goose wood, ginger or vanilla.
