Curve Connect cologne from Liz Claiborne, launched earlier this year, is an understated fragrance that features exotic foreign teas, tobacco flower, sandalwood and tonka bean, and is available in 125 ml spray. For the aesthetically inclined, I suppose the bottle design is less than inspired, but personally I don’t care much about the packaging of a scent, since it doesn’t have any bearing on the quality of the fragrance within. A 4.2 ounce spray retails for $45 – $50.


Another offering – and my personal favorite – is Dunhill Man cologne by Alfred Dunhill. The scent is described by the manufacturer as “consisting of woody notes exquisitely designed to meet the needs of a working man.” Whether that is supposed to be a subtle nod to the blue-collar man is unclear, but I can personally attest to its powers: A woman I once dated enthusiastically referred to it as “girl-bait.” While I can’t promise a similar response from all women, I can say that each woman who has commented on it to me has only offered positive feedback. A 2.5 ounce spray bottle can be purchased for $40 – $45.
