Living by a code of modern gallantry, he draws on time-tested values that fit perfectly in today’s world. He is the ultimate “modern cowboy”, who builds, protects, provides, and stands steadfast in any situation. This quintessential American spirit is distilled in new Stetson Caliber... a new fragrance for the modern gentleman.
The Stetson Caliber fragrance opens with notes of sparkling lime and black pepper. The warm heart of the scent contains nutmeg and violet leaf. The Earthy Oakmoss adds depth of character, while the true star is the woody red sequoia note. Embodying the subtle vigor and fervor of the modern cowboy, the Red Sequoia tree gives the fragrance a sexy, masculine finish. ($19, mass retailers)

John Varvatos launched a new fragrance for men in 2013 named Artisan Acqua and we still love it today! This is the fifth fragrance of their artisan collection, described by Varvatos: "From the start, we’ve always tried to go back to making fragrances the way they used to be made — all by hand, with the best ingredients in the world, artisanal fragrances with smaller batches.”
Artisan Acqua is a lighter fragrance than its antecedent, the summer version inspired by beaches and seaside charm. Inspired by the Mediterranean, and long walks along the coast. The fragrance opens with notes of mandarin, tangelo (hybrid of tangerine and pomelo) and paradisamide molecule (leaving the impression of tropical fruit notes of guava, grapefruit, rhubarb and currant) accompanied by galbanum, lentic and angelica root. In the heart lie clary sage, lavender, coriander, toscanol, basil, geranium, palmarosa and jasmine sambac on a base of musk, patchouli and fir resin.
