He Sprays, She Sprays

He Sprays, She Sprays

We took a scent census around the office and came up with six lovely pairs of perfumes for him and her. Herewith, our staff picks.

Marianne Wisenthal, Montreal editor, English edition
Couples who spray together, stay together. When we're not stealing spritzs of our man's woody Grey Vetivert by Tom Ford ($100), he's dipping into our bottle of Private Blend Italian Cypress (from $210). Both at Holt Renfrew.


Tara Parker Tait, Publisher
Opposites attract with Parisian cult favourite Annick Goutal's Petite Chérie (finally, she divulges her secret scent!) for her ($110 at the Bay) and the luxe Hermès Poivre Samarcande ($250 at Hermès) for him.


Joy Pecknold, Vancouver editor
For a date night, spritz Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb ($120 at Holt Renfrew), a bouquet of sweet, fruity florals. If the boy shows up smelling of John Varvatos' Artisan ($70 at Sephora), this relationship may have serious potentional.


Malwina Gudowska, Calgary editor
French girl meets American boy: YSL's Parisienne ($65) is a match with the masculine John Varvatos Classic ($78). Both at Sephora.


Tonya Albulet, Western Sales Manager
Lalique's Amethyst ($110), with top notes of blackcurrant and blackberry, comes in a bold purple bottle worthy of your nightstand. If your BF wears Lacoste Pour Homme Grey ($75), it's meant to be. Both at Holt Renfrew.


Elsa Vecchi, Montreal editor, French edition
A spritz for you, a dab for him. A summery scent that is fresh and classic, Vétiver by Guerlain is made for a man, but also smells lovely on a lady. $95 at Holt Renfrew.
