The One, Grey
Don't like smokey or overly woody fragrances? The latest version of Dolce & Gabbana's "The One" cologne offers a subtle, almost floral sweetness (thanks to geranium and clary sage) that's balanced by tobacco leaves, cardamom and patchouli. It's elegant and mildly exotic.

Like spicy scents? This is warm and autumnal without being woodsy. Based on their popular black pepper body wash and soap, it blends cracked black peppercorns with lemon and ginger. The spice is balanced with herbaceous greens like basil and coriander. And while it may sound a bit like a Thai dish, it's really quite pleasant.

Looking for a subtle everyday cologne? Dunhill's newest fragrance is versatile enough to work just as well in the office as it does for an afternoon weekend date. An old school sandalwood base is inherently masculine, while fresh citrus notes of mandarin and neroli are balanced by the faint scent of burning incense.

Searching for your date night cologne? This collaboration between John Varvatos and Nick Jonas has just the right amount of weight without feeling too thick or overpowering. It boasts Varvatos's signature aquatic feel, but with some deeper, earthy and musky wood tones to make it feel appropriately suited for nighttime.

Eau de Parfum
Want something with staying power? This darker version of Dior's popular fragrance is Eau de Parfum—which contains a higher concentration of essences and oils than your standard Eau de Toilette. The spicy scent blends citrus with smokey woods and a warm vanilla undertone.
