With days to go, this is the one for him this Christmas. Bracken Man by Amouage is a modernised fern fougere that’s long lasting and fabulously unique. It’s notes are  bergamot, lemon, cypress, lavender, nutmeg and cloves; a heart of geranium, sandalwood, cedar and cinnamon; finally a base of patchouli and musk.

It takes a very traditional fragrances, decorated in paisley patterns and brings it into the 21st century. Bracken is earthy and forestal with soils, greens cloves and patchouli. It’s mossy but warm and comforting.

Bracken Man eau de parfum 100ml. £225. Selfridges

Bracken is the winter scent and smells great of a thick scarf and heavy winter coat. I love it so much that I’ve given it to Chris so I can smell it on someone I love and associate it with great memories.

Bracken comes in a stunning wooden Paisley-covered box and set into velvet. Pricey, but for 100ml this will make a stunning Christmas gift for the fragrance lover in your life!
