Fashion's fragrance explosion started in 1975, when American style icon Halston introduced his namesake scent. Women loved the Elsa Peretti bottle and sophisticated bouquet. Following his lead—albeit some 26 years later—are fellow designers Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs with debut men's and women's scents. Michael for Men (eau de toilette spray, 2.5 fl. oz, about $50) suggests bold masculinity with rich patchouli and an exotic blend of spices (star anise, elemi, and cardamom) intertwined with smooth suede and tobacco. Marc Jacobs Perfume for women (perfume, .5 fl. oz, about $250; eau de parfum spray, 3.4 fl. oz, about $80) features the lush scent of gardenia touched with notes of wild muguet and mild undertones of cedar and ginger.
