Signature for Him description
Versatility is one of the most important qualities a well-curated scent wardrobe can have. There are moments where you are going to need a perfume that can do it all, and be able to handle different environments and occasions equally well. Fragrances that can be worn both day and night, or that can transition from the office to after-hours are vital to a proper collection.
And so it is that English Laundry’s Signature for Him is an excellent every day choice for the office or the gym. It’s fresh, clean citrusy opening is lively and bright, and will keep you energized and alert whether you’re in a business meeting or plowing through your last mile on the treadmill.
Zesty top notes of bergamot and lemon are paired with a buttoned-down lavender and smooth cedar to start things off on a polished and put-together note. The top notes are tuned to have tremendous lasting power, so you have plenty of time to enjoy this fresh, invigorating beginning before the aromatic spices in the heart arrive.
But when they do, Signature for Him turns into a warm and cozy scent with nutmeg and coriander filling up the middle of the fragrance. Nutmeg is the lead note here, as its brushed, mellow feel spreads through the heart and is underlined by the brisk, assertive, and waxy coriander note. Coriander’s natural heat stays muted in Signature, just providing enough contrast to fully experience the nutmeg’s soft, dry warmth.
The dry down is muted and sweet, with sandalwood, vetiver, musk, and amber coalescing into a swirl of bright, dry, and supple tones that allow the nutmeg’s spice from the heart to continue warming the pulse of the fragrance until it finally retreats in an elegant, slow fade of tangy, green facets.
Signature for Him is an excellent on-the-go style of scent, it isn’t flashy or dramatic, but it always is appropriate and smells fantastic any time you choose to wear it.
