We know that this cologne smells great and comes in a beautiful bottle, but we sure as hell haven't heard of the things it supposedly smells like — you're lying if you say you've heard of petit grain, santolina, posidonia, or mineral amber. Bvlgari Aqva for men ($48) may try to be a little too svelte, but we'll allow it this time.
Sometimes it’s better to not be wearing a fragrance that another guy has worn around your lady, since scent is the sense with the strongest ties to memory, and you can make sure of that with this noble fragrance by Divine. L'homme de coeur ($115) — translated “The noble-hearted man” — features notes of angelica, juniper berries, cypress, iris, vetiver, ambergris, and wild vanilla. It smells good enough to convince any woman you are noble-hearted — at least for one night.
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.
