If there is one easy-to-keep resolution worth making at the start of a new season it is simply to smell better. Thankfully, the start of spring marks the best time to invest in a new fragrance as the sensory mask of winter – and its unshakable shield of cold and flu – has made way for some warmer weather. And, as science proves, a fragrance requires heat to become perceptible; and the hotter it is, the larger, fuller and more enjoyable the scent appears – unless you’re packed onto a humid morning tube of course. Anyway, to help you start spring in the best way possible, we have picked out the three finest fair-weather scents from the latest male grooming brands to launch at OPUMO.




Beyond being renowned for its inventive packaging – the minimalist hermetic polystyrene shell that has to be broken by the user to reach the bottle inside – oneofthose’ unique scents are based on one of the elements in the periodic table. The Italian-based brand also provides perfectly bright, citrus-based fragrances that are suited to warm weather, such as the Mercury 80Hg Eau De Parfum. Containing a range of premium raw materials, the oneofthose Mercury fragrance is designed to ‘mirror a dream’ through its fresh and aromatic scent that features a combination of cold-pressed lemon, mandarin, rhubarb and blackcurrant that, collectively, creates a strong, albeit slightly sweet, antidote to the weather.



Maison Margiela Replica Parfume – Soul of the Forest


Room 1015 Electric Wood Eau De Parfum

Maison Margiela

The Soul of the Forest Replica Parfume from Maison Margiela practices exactly what the brands’ founding father preached; ‘an experience that changes nothing is hardly worth having.’ This men’s fragrance is inspired by familiar fantasises, with a bright and aromatic quality – courtesy of notes of sap and vetiver – and a sweet-spicy lift of blackcurrant and pimento berries. It’s just the right kind of summer fragrance if you’re the kind of person to always flirt with the idea of wearing a slightly floral fragrance, but aren’t quite ready to step away from your favoured, more masculine cologne.

Room 1015

If you usually wear a strong, statement-making scent through winter, you can do the same in spring providing you don’t go too over-the-top when it comes to the spritzing. Electric Wood is the latest male fragrance from Room 1015 – the British brand that blend full-volume fragrances with radical rock aesthetics – and, as the name suggests, is inspired by the smell of ‘lacquered wood and metallic slap of tight strings’ of a guitar. The eau de perfume begins bright and bitter with top notes of nutmeg, lemon and sage before it evolves to reveal its true nature with a classic spicy-wood base that lingers for hours. The perfect evening fragrance.
