So she'll finally say, "What's that smell?" with a smile on her face.
1. BEST FOR FORMAL EVENTS
A sensual scent with a black bottle based on the design of an Armani tuxedo. Which means you’ll smell like Bond. And a good one; none of that Lazenby nonsense. $37.50–$73
2. BEST FOR EVERY DAY
Yves Saint Laurent L’Homme
This classic scent—with subtle notes of bergamot, ginger, and vetiver—is discreet but surprising, a bit like a loyal butler who likes popping out from behind doors. $43–$75
3. BEST FOR DATE NIGHT
Perry Ellis Night
Hints of blood orange, amberwood, and citron make this distinctively nocturnal but thoroughly masculine—more suave Count Dracula than sparkly, useless Edward Cullen. $60
