    Top of the list is this great niche cologne. It's a sweet, smooth woody floral musk built from old-fashioned fragrance combinations often found in toiletries, fine-milled soaps, and barbershops. It's been likened to Jean-Paul Gaultier’s Le Male.

    Heart Notes: Orris, Jasmine, Neroli
    Base notes: Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Vetiver

    Season: Spring/summer/fall
