As classic as the car itself, this cologne by the luxury automobile maker is equally as opulent without the same kind of price tag.

The words “powerful” and “understated” don’t usually go hand in hand, but that’s the kind of scent this is, and the kind of man it’s made specially for. There’s a slight apple aroma with notes of coriander, cloves for spice that adds zing, plus musk and amber for a faint woody base.

Intense is one word you could use to describe this multi-layered cologne, but we prefer versatile. Since no one should ever be labeled as one thing, this scent captures the many sides of a man with varying but also complementary notes of amber, patchouli, neroli, and geranium.

4. Jo Malone London English Oak & Hazelnut Cologne

Woody but not in the traditional sense, this cologne opts for oak instead of sandalwood to create a deeper, more mystifying aroma. Using a process exclusive to Jo Malone in which washed wood chips are roasted at high temperatures, it gives off a richer, smokier scent complemented by notes of green hazelnut for spice.
