V for Men

V for Men

Named after Clive Christian's daughter, Victoria, V for Men is a classic woody oriental scent, a sophisticated mixture of citrus notes and exotic woods. Frankincense is the lead ingredient and instantly calls to mind what the inside of an old church smells like. Three different peppers are blended in to give it a spicy piquant note, which balances out the heaviness of the incense. There's a trace of cedar in there, too. While V is certainly strong, it is not overpowering or too heavy, making it appropriate for day and evening. [$405 for 1.7 oz; clive.com]
