Le Labo Ylang 49

Floral-heavy scents on men can be, shall we say, challenging. But the right one will instantly brand you as cultured. Striking just that tone is Le Labo's newest, which is also the famed brand's first floral (and three years in the making, no less). The softness of Tahitian flowers and jasmine-like ylang ylang are toughened up with undertones of sandalwood, oakmoss, patchouli, and earthy vetiver. If you've been accused of being too sensitive, you might want to stay clear, but if you're looking to show a softer side, then have no fear: This is an easy enough flower patch to walk through. [$145 for 1.7 oz; lelabofragrances.com]
