Dior Sauvage

Perfect for adventure seekers, this cologne is inspired by a hot desert day under a sprawling blue sky. Its fresh, fruity, and spicy profile is emphasized by notes of bergamot, pepper, and ambergris. With a barely-perceptible tobacco background, Dior Sauvage defies labels, just like your man.

Versace Eros

In Greek mythology Eros is the son of Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty, and is himself the god of love and desire — perhaps better recognized by the name of his Roman counterpoint, Cupid. Take inspiration from him with this citrusy, oaky fragrance. With notes of green apple, lemon, tonka bean, and vanilla, this sensual scent is irresistible. If you can't turn your man into a Greek god, you can at least make him smell like one.

Maison Margiela 'Replica' By The Fireplace

This fragrance is literally made for curling up and getting cozy by the fireplace. Meant to evoke a wintery evening in the French alps circa 1971, its spicy notes of burning wood, chestnut, and vanilla make it the perfect Christmastime scent. And in a modern, design-y bottle, 'Replica' By The Fireplace looks beautiful displayed in a bathroom or vanity.

Etat Liberte D'Orange Je Suis Un Homme

Calling all history buffs: This cologne is inspired by Napoleon in battle. Birch wood and citrus evoke a Mediterranean landscape, while cognac harks back to the leather of boots and saddles. Cinnamon and clove add spice, and bergamot lends the focused energy of a general intent on world domination.

Commodity Moss

An outdoorsy man deserves an earthy, woody scent. With key notes of (what else?) moss and cedarwood, this musky cologne evokes a cool hike in the forest shortly after a fresh spring rainfall. If you're stuck inside for the winter, don't despair — Commodity Moss brings the nature to you.
