Get a new summer smell (besides that beer-and-sausage one) with John Varvatos Artisan ($55). The citrusy fragrance covers your bod with a "refreshing citrus explosion that develops into a spicy and floral blend followed by a masculine woody impression." It comes in a flask-shaped bottle that's hand-woven in distressed rattan.
Simply the coolest cologne, ever. Lynx Bespoke Scent ($182) was developed by Oki-ni, Lynx, and designer Pete Fowler to be the perfect scent for men. Pick out your date and time, and you'll receive a personal consultation (in London, unfortunately for us) with perfumers who will custom-fit a scent just for you. You'll get your fragrance in about a month — in absolutely the best cologne bottle we've ever seen.
So if someone came up to you on the street and told you you'd have to pay money to smell like Jack Black you'd probably laugh in his face — but it's not the Jack Black you're thinking of. Jack Black Signature Black Mark Cologne ($65) features notes of saffron, coriander, and red cedar, and most definitely smells nothing like that stoned guy prancing around in his underwear in "Orange County."
Forget Green and Blue. Polo Black by Ralph Lauren ($65/4.2 oz) is the new king. The modern fragrance is bright, sweet and clean with a hint of fruit. One of the overall smoothest scents to come along in a long time. Plus, the all-black bottle is as sleek as they come.
