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

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.

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.

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.

    • The internet is enamored with George H.W. Bush's 1993 letter to Bill Clinton

      In the midst of the chaotic lead-up to November's election, a 1993 letter from outgoing President George H.W. Bush to incoming President Bill Clinton has the internet nostalgic for political seasons past. Bush penned the letter on Jan. 20, 1993, the day of Clinton's first inauguration. The previous November, he'd failed to secure a second term in office. SEE ALSO: So that's 3 presidential debates, 0 climate change questions Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton posted the letter to Instagram in June: You may have noticed a letter that went viral on the internet this week. The letter is from George H.W. Bush’s presidential library. I hadn’t read it in a long time, until yesterday. It moved me to tears, just like it did all those years ago. It’s the letter that President Bush left in the Oval Office for my husband, back in January of 1993. They had just fought a fierce campaign. Bill won, President Bush lost. In a democracy, that’s how it goes. But when Bill walked into that office for the very first time as President, that note was waiting for him. It had some good advice about staying focused on what mattered, despite the critics. It wished him happiness. And it concluded with these words: “You will be our President when you read this note. I wish you well. I wish your family well. Your success is now our country’s success. And I am rooting hard for you. George.” That’s the America we love. That is what we cherish and expect. A photo posted by Hillary Clinton (@hillaryclinton) on Jun 14, 2016 at 4:25pm PDT After wishing Bill "great happiness" in the White House, Bush writes: "Your success is now our country's success. And I am rooting hard for you." Those sharing the 1993 letter invoke Bush's words as an example of losing with dignity.  In contrast, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made headlines during Wednesday's debate when he declared that he may not accept the results of November's election should Clinton win. In a speech on Thursday, he followed up on that statement: He will accept the results of the election if he's the winner .

    • Jennifer Garner, Devoted Mom, Schleps Her Daughter's School Project in a Sexy Dress

      Jennifer Garner took one for the team (the team being the Garner-Affleck family) when she lugged her daughter Seraphina's school project down the street in LA on Thursday. The actress stayed chic in a navy dress and heels while carrying the giant box, which was adorably covered in glitter and had a shoe taped to it. It also read in bright letters "The Time Machine by Sera" — we can't help but wonder if the 7-year-old got help from her famous parents on the assignment. Jennifer's devotion to her kids has been evident in her recent outings; she and estranged husband Ben Affleck linked up for their little ones' first day of school in September, and days later she was spotted schlepping backpacks

      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

Duterte made his comments in Beijing, where he was paving the way for what he calls a new commercial alliance as relations with long-time ally Washington deteriorate.

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.

    • 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
