Your Cologne for Fall

Picking a new cologne is a complex equation balancing what you like, what women like, and what you wouldn't mind smelling like.

"La Nuit De L'Homme" by Yves Saint Laurent (pronounced Eve Sane-lor-aun) accomplishes all of these splendidly. It's modern and sexy, which pleases the ladies, and masculine with sweet notes of wood and tobacco for you. It's perfect for a winter evening out, but the simplicity fits in any time of year.

The scent experts at Base Notes, the fragrance database for the web, give it strong reviews for longevity, aroma, and, perhaps most importantly for a cologne: compliment factor. It's best described by one reviewer: "This fragrance was made to attract the opposite sex and it does its job very well."

Pick it up: YSL, $60
