Imagine the sea, as filtered through sheets recently laundered with the freshest lavender you ever smelled, mint leaves, lemon rinds, and finally, driftwood. The sea part comes from a molecule called Cascalone that Ferragamo created specifically for Acqua Essenziale. It really gives the cologne a nostalgic, beachy scent with nary the use of rum or coconut. This can be your gentlemanly go-to for romantic summer nights but translates with ease into polite daytime sophistication. [$80 for 3.4 oz; macys.com]
