Whether the Night out is formal black tie or casual cocktail, your cologne should be just as elegant and match your style. Find out the five of the season's top special-occasion fragrances.
TOM FORD EXTREME
$125, Saks Fifth Avenue
This cologne, with Thai basil and Italian black fig, will last until you loosen your bow tie.
DSQUARED HE WOOD
Vetiver and musk make this powerful fragrance best for parties that don't start until well after cocktail hour.
BECKHAM SIGNATURE FOR HIM
The spicy juniper-berry-and-patchouli blend is meant to stand out—a good thing when everyone's wearing the same suit.
GUCCI BY GUCCI POUR HOMME
A mix of violet and cedarwood, this scent is as classic as barrel cuff links.
Oranger Alhambra ($115), Giorgio Armani Beauty
If you're a skip-the-vest guy, try this lighter scent with bitter orange and rosemary.
THE CLASSIC: CREED, GREEN IRISH TWEED
$250, Neiman Marcus
The iris-and-sandalwood scent doesn't guarantee you pretty young things, but it might give you some of Grant's legendary ease in eveningwear. Just ask Russell Crowe and Tom Hanks, who've tried it out.
