It's easy enough to find a scent that smells good, less easy to choose one that actually fits your style. So we created a handy guide to the best new fragrances, ranging from dude's-dude woodsiness to fashion-forward floral scents, and everything in between.

The Indie Lumberjack

Invisible Monster from CB I Hate Perfume makes you smell like you felled trees all day with one of those $300 paint-dipped axes, then went home to shotgun a microbrew.

Tom Ford's patchouli-based (but not at all hippie) Noir makes sense for a man who's on a first-name basis with both his tailor and his motorcycle mechanic.

The Put-Together Rebel

The name makes it sound like a strain of marijuana from Dallas, but D.S. & Durga's spicy, boozy Cowboy Grass gives off a distinctly Wild West vibe.

The Power Jet-Setter

There's nothing mellow about Versace's Eros. Its unapologetic minty-vanilla scent lets everyone know you'd rather be vacationing on St. Bart's.

Prada's new Luna Rossa packs an extra-fresh hit of lavender for the kind of detail-obsessed guy who knows the difference between pomade, paste, and styling clay.

    • 'I'm the victim,' Iowa teacher who had sex with student says on 'Dr. Phil'

      DES MOINES — A substitute teacher accused of having sex with a 17-year-old high school student in Cedar Rapids claims the student seduced her. Mary Beth Haglin was charged in July with sexual exploitation by a teacher. On Monday, she appeared on Dr. Phil, accusing the student of seducing her and sharing sexy photos with his friends. “Many people see him as the victim and me as the perpetrator. From a psychological standpoint and from every other standpoint, I feel like I am the victim,” Haglin said on the Dr. Phil show, citing the student's intelligence and “elevated vocabulary” as part of the seduction. Haglin pleaded not guilty to sexual exploitation by a school employee. Her trial is set to

    • Virginia Tech Students Made An Awful Jose Fernandez Sign To Mock Miami Football

      College students, ironically, are not always known to be the brightest of bulbs, and whoever decided to hang this banner at Virginia Tech certainly isn’t doing anything to improve that reputation. Mocking the death of Miami Marlins’ pitcher Jose Fernandez, who passed away in a tragic boating accident last month, the sign was put out in advance of the Miami Hurricanes’ visit to Blacksburg for their ACC battle on Thursday night. Whoever made this sign wanted to make sure everyone knew that they respect Fernandez, as they extended the “courtesy” to throw an RIP at the end.

    • After ‘jealous rage,’ killer sentenced to life without parole in Target parking lot murder

      The eight-foot projection screen dropped from a courtroom ceiling. The surveillance video began to play. And from her seat in the second row, Cassandra Atkens — in court Thursday to watch her daughter’s killer be sentenced — knew what she was about to see. The video showed how light it still was at 7:17 p.m. June 1, 2015, in a Target store parking lot in Germantown where Atkens’s daughter, Mariam “Shadé” Adebayo, had agreed to meet ex-boyfriend Donald Bricker one more time. She was there to tell him it really was over. He pulled up in his truck, then got in her car and brought out a .44-caliber, replica-style black-powder revolver — a gun that he’d ordered online and that had arrived just that

    • Christopher Nolan released his best and most essential movie 10 years ago today

      A decade ago, I accidentally bought a ticket to the wrong movie. I wanted to go see The Illusionist, a movie about a magician in Vienna at the turn of the century who uses his theatrical powers to make a woman of a much higher social standing fall in love with him. It starred Edward Norton at a time when Edward Norton reigned supreme, and it had all the tellings of a classic romantic tale, but with magic. Instead, I bought a ticket to go see The Prestige, a movie by Christopher Nolan who had become somewhat of a hot ticket following the success of Memento in 2000 and Batman Begins in 2005. I remember complaining about the fact that there were two movies released within a month of each other about

    • 34-Year-Old Model Katie May Died From A Stroke—Here’s What You Should Know

      Update Oct. 19, 2016: According to information from the Los Angeles County Coroner released today, the stroke that killed 34-year-old model Katie May in February was caused by "an injury sustained during a 'neck manipulation by chiropractor,'" People reports. The coroner's assessment is that when May visited a chiropractor for an adjustment in her neck, it caused a tear in her left vertebral artery. "The tear blocked blood flow to May’s brain and caused the stroke," People reports. It was previously believed that a block in her carotid artery following a fall during a photoshoot may have been the cause of the fatal stroke.

    • Kourtney Kardashian awkwardly 'blanks' TV hosts who ask about Kim

      Kourtney Kardashian had an awkward on-air moment Thursday morning when hosts of an Australian morning program asked how her sister Kim Kardashian is holding up after her robbery ordeal.   The questions was met with bizarre silence, while the reality TV star sat staring off camera, presumably listening to the panicked advice of her publicists.  SEE ALSO: Khloe Kardashian DGAF about Donald Trump calling her a 'piglet' Making matters worse, the connection was dropped. When producers got Kardashian back on the line post-ad break, she explained "we had a bad connection."   "I think she's totally blanking me on that question," said David Campbell, co-host of Today Extra , adding, "She could just say her sister is fine! I mean I think we just said that you know we're very concerned and we were onside and we hoped that everyone's fine, which I still do." According to The Herald Sun , Kourtney insisted that she be re-connected to the show’s host in order to address the question. Once connected, she discussed how the Kardashian klan was feeling after her sister was held at gunpoint during the Paris robbery.  "I think we're all really still shaken up and I just — you know, I think she has a big supportive family and I know that, like, all of the traumatic things that we've been through, you know, we get through them together as a family and that's what family is all about," she said.  While it might not be the most informative response ever uttered, it may have been worth it as an act of "saving face." What's a potential little white lie about a technical glitch between friends, anyway?   Many of us would love to use the old "we just had a bad connection" excuse to get out of conversations IRL, sometimes.   Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint in Paris
