The latest in its long line of fragrances, the Jaguar Pace was created to celebrate the launch of the Jaguar F-Pace, an expression of masculinity, power and excellence in performance. Despite the car’s positioning as a family car, the Pace is a spicy, woody and aromatic blend of black pepper, apple, rosemary and amberwood, an aspirational scent for a family car I must say. Nestled in a dark blue bottle with a lattice design reminiscent of the radiator grill, I daresay this would make a great visual addition to any man’s wardrobe.

Although Rolls Royce has yet to roll out a scent, we’d like to suggest Regent Leather – an eau de parfum formulated by luxury fragrance house Thameen in association with the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club.
