Could Sean O’Pry be the perfect man? We think he comes pretty close.
In honor of our newly launched, Top Money Guys list, this week’s mdc ♥ is devoted to products for the guys.
SCENTS OF A MAN
With so many incredible men’s scents on the market right now, it is a little hard to choose, but we’ve narrowed it down to four favorites sure to please a variety of guys.
The Sophisticate: Who better than Tom Ford to provide the final touch for the man who has everything? Ford’s Azure Lime is a refreshing blend of citrus and woods that puts a new spin on the classic cologne by adding in a touch of patchouli and musk for added sex appeal. | available at Bergdorf Goodman
The Fashionisto: Insiders know that NYC boutique, Odin is one of the best sources for au currant menswear, so it should come as no surprised that their signature scents are just as innovative. In search of something contemporary yet timeless? Give their scent, Odin Century a try; silver birch, cypress and mint combine for a bold and masculine aroma. | available at ODIN New York
The Dude: For a scent the skews casual and down to earth, you really cannot beat MCMC’s Dude Beard oil. The quirky name draws you in, but it is the spicy blend of cedar, green coriander and pink pepper that keeps you interested. For anyone without a beard there is no need to worry, the fragrant oil can be used all over.| available at MCMC Fragrances
The Classic Gentleman: You can always count on Diptyque for something understated and refined. The line’s signature candles are a mainstay in fashion circles and their eau de toilettes are just as captivating. The rose and vetiver centric composition of Vetyverio is as refined as it gets, we can imagine a modern day Cary Grant pulling it off perfectly. | available at Diptyque
ISAAC REINA ACCESSORIES
Minimal, unfussy and effortless – three elements essential to Isaac Reina’s designs. You won’t find any overwrought it-bags here, just functional and stylish satchels, laptop bags and dop kits all done in buttery soft leather. Reina’s under the radar aesthetic has gained him a cult following and a place in some of the world’s most forward thinking stores.

ACNE’S WALL STREET SUIT
Need a suit, but not quite ready for the full on seriousness of Brooks Brothers or Thom Browne’s eccentricity? Jonny Johansson has got you covered; Acne’s line of suiting manages to mix business with their brand of laid back cool. You might not wear the full on Acne look – complete with earring and knit cap – to the office, but a touch a punk never hurt anyone.

A BRIEF MUSICAL INTERLUDE
We’ve seen at least a dozen male models wearing the ubiquitous Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, so it is safe to say that there is a little trend emerging. With their stylish design and high quality audio, it is very easy to see why these headphones keep popping up. While were not quite sure what the boys are listening to, we’ve been playing The Black Keys in our office nonstop.
