This special blend for the ultimate New York shopping mecca is the ultimate fragrance. It is 99% sweet with a 1% dash of spice that makes it so special and a showstopper. The main note is gardenia, which is perfectly balanced with jasmine, vanilla, and vetiver. It is available at Saks Fifth Avenue locations and Bond No. 9 New York stores.

That patch of gardenias just happens to start where the forest ends and your man is wearing Terre D’Hermes ($81). This woodsy fragrance from the fashion house of Hermes is a perfectly masculine cologne. Its fame translates to of the earth from French which is why woodsy is what registers first with some mineral facets that are then enhances with citrus scents.
