The D&G Fragrance Anthology—five scents inspired by tarot cards—is equal to any occasion (or change of fortune). Nineties supermodels Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, and Eva Herzigova took off their clothes for the ad campaign. Here, they offer advice on how to get terrestrial women to do the same for nothing.
You can tell a lot by a man's shoes. Always wear a great pair.
Play some sports, rather than just going to the gym.
Own a tailored suit.
Always open doors, and always put on her coat. This is a simple but powerful action.
Stand up when a lady leaves and returns to the table.
Fresh breath is important.
A man's hands can be sexy if they're taken care of.
Wear sunscreen. The burnt-chop look isn't very attractive.
Get a massage whenever possible.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the designer noses behind D&G Anthology, on all you really need to know about wearing cologne.
Get a fragrance made for a man.
"We don't love the word unisex," Gabbana says. "It's very similar to admitting to not having a personality."
Try it on your skin.
"When you try on a jacket, you look at proportions and the fit," Dolce says. "The same goes for a scent. You have to feel it's yours."
Apply it with a light hand.
"We don't like excess," Gabbana says. "You should barely smell a scent. It's more about leaving a memory of you, not about knocking out who's close to you."
Feel free to own more than one.
"The important thing is having a choice," Gabbana says. "I can wear the same fragrance for 10 years just because I like it, or I can change it every day because I feel like it."
