We love a product with a good story, and Kiehl's Original Musk has a good one. Supposedly formulated for the first time at Kiehl's Apothecary in the 1920s, the scent was found in a tub labeled "Love Oil" in the late '50s, and subsequently reintroduced in 1963. The updated scent leads with notes of bergamot nectar and orange blossom, followed by floral notes of rose, lily, ylang-ylang, and neroli, and finishes with a masculine blend of tonka nut, white patchouli, and musk. Arrives in a 1.7oz spray bottle with fittingly old-school labelling.
Most colognes have abstract names, meant to evoke a feeling rather than describing the smell itself. Not so with Tom Ford Black Orchid. This masculine scent opens with bold notes of black plum and orchid, mixing in patchouli, as well as various fruits, spices, and woods. In addition, it's designed to mingle with your skin's natural chemistry, creating a one-of-a-kind scent that's truly individualized.
As anyone who's ever visited a tannery can tell you, leather has a very distinct, alluring scent. Ralph Lauren Polo Supreme Leather Cologne celebrates this fact by mixing the smell of leather with a blend of spices, resulting in a warm, rich scent that's an ideal accompaniment to the cool air and bright colors of fall. Exclusive to Bloomingdale's, it comes in a 4.2 oz size and arrives in a fittingly dark brown bottle.
You may or may not be a gentleman. But you can certainly smell like one with Givenchy Gentlemen Only Intense. Tracing its lineage all the way to the original Givenchy Gentleman from 1974, this modern scent offers notes of peppercorn, tonka bean, leather, and hide, creating a rich fragrance that's distinctly masculine. In other words, fit for a gentleman.
