It’s obvious enough that fashion changes with the times, but for some reason, a lot of men don’t know that fragrances do, too. The same fellow who long ago learned to make other fairly evolved aesthetic choices is quite possibly wearing the same cologne that his last (or even first) serious girlfriend gave him. Which means the poor bastard still smells like 1980.

Time for perfect scents.
So what does “now” smell like? As with everything else in this disintermediated, niche-marketed age, there is no simple, one-scent-fits-all answer. But there is a general sense of making do with less. “Everybody has stepped back and asked for lighter, clearer, more transparent scents,” says Annette Green, president of the New York City-based Fragrance Foundation. After way too much “overdoing it,” she says, “men’s fragrance has gotten light again.” As well it should.
