Out of the woods: Made with raw ingredients, Terre d’Hermès connects its wearers back to nature. Inhale the woody, mineral and green notes, which are lightened with a hint of grapefruit (1.6 ounces, $86; sephora.com). 

Dive in: Designed for the man who seeks adventure, L’Homme by L’Occitane combines aquatic notes with the bold scents of ginger and exotic spices. Cedar, musk and amber wood tone the intensity, adding rustic notes in the metallic flask bottle (75 milliliters, $62; usa.loccitane.com).

Wake up: Elegant yet masculine, A*Men, Thierry Mugler’s first fragrance for men, enlists the woodsy essence of patchouli and the calmness of lavender. The finishing notes create an explosion of energy, with coffee and warm musk at the forefront (3.4 ounces, $50.99; fragrance.com).

Spice it up: Hailed as classic, distinctive and smooth, John Varvatos Vintage has a spicy core and leather-like background. Moroccan coastal plants are blended with piquant fruits, cinnamon, pepper, lush florals, wood elements and Turkish tobacco (4.2 ounces, $48.99; fragrance.com).

Liquid gold: In this case, judge the fragrance by its bottle. The beautiful bar of gold aptly reflects the luxurious scents highlighted in Paco Rabanne 1 Million, which include top notes of mint and blood mandarin with base notes of leather, white wood, amber and Indonesian patchouli (3.4 ounces, $75.99; fragrance.com).

Sky’s the limit: Polo Blue pulls inspiration from the freedom of the sky and the energy of the open waters, landing on a scent reminiscent of a blast of fresh air. It mixes marine notes with spicy basil and sage, which are softened with hints of suede, moss and musk (4.2 ounces, $69.99; fragrance.com).
