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.
American outdoor brand Woolrich is known for its woolen fabrics, and it's those high-quality materials that make the Topo Designs x Woolrich Klettersack so distinctive. The Woolrich-sourced pieces are accented with rich leather, which appears on the base and lash tabs. It also has a completely lined interior, an inner sleeve that fits laptops up to 15 inches, a drawstring closure, oversized YKK zippers, and extra pockets on the top and sides. Available in a western print, black waffle or olive waffle and handmade in Colorado.

With a timeless design that remains as rugged as it is fashionable, the G. H. Bass & Co. Duclair Duck Boot makes for a versatile addition to your wardrobe. The rubber outsole is joined by another strip of rubber running around the bottom to help keep out water, snow, and muck, while the rest of the upper consists of durable genuine leather. It's finished with metal eyelets, leather laces, canvas lining, and a fleece sock for added warmth. Available in two colorways: dark Chestnut and lighter Cognac.

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.
