If you could take, say, all the music from Van Morrison, Credence Clearwater Revival, and Simon and Garfunkel, and run them through a vintage whiskey still, the resulting elixir might smell a little like this limited-edition fragrance. It's warmer than the others we tried, with a burst of citrus, coriander, and sage, but it soon settles into musky, classic rock notes of leather, amber, and tamboti wood – all supported by a tenacious bass line of patchouli. Not that it's an "old" scent at all. It's just the fragrant equivalent to nostalgic, acoustic rock and roll, or a well-worn pair of old jeans. [$82 for 4.2 oz; johnvarvatos.com]
