Ferragamo Signorina Libera 

Embodying the adventurous and bright spirit of the independent woman, Ferragamo’s newest addition to the Signorina fragrance story celebrates individuality and the power of forging a unique path. Whether that journey is in the boardroom or across a map, the exuberant eau de parfum energizes with top notes of Calabrian bergamot and pear; a gentle heart of florals and fruits from rose, iris and plum; and a woody, amber base with a pink-sugar kick. $122.

18.21 Man Made Absolute Mahogany 

Harkening back to a swanky era of distinctly curated style, 18.21 Man Made’s line of grooming products are presented with Prohibition-inspired design that packages modern men’s care with pure American nostalgia. The newest addition to the brand’s Spirits collection, Absolute Mahogany combines notes of cardamom and mahogany with amber, Italian mandarin and a touch of Tahitian vanilla to evoke a fireside cocktail at an oceanside speakeasy nearly as romantic as the air travel of yesteryear.
These small-batch, American-made fragrances bring a sense of hometown pride wherever you travel. $86.

Trudon Belles Matières

The world’s oldest still-operating candlemaker, Trudon is perhaps best known as the royal supplier to the court of Louis XIV, enchanting the fabulous palace of Versailles throughout the Sun King’s reign. Still poured in Normandy with centuries of experience, the six exotic fragrances of the Belles Matières collection take inspiration from the botanical treasures of far-flung gardens, from Italy to India, China to New Caledonia. The iconic gold seal on each glass jar serves as a reminder of Trudon’s royal heritage — a simple yet sophisticated luxury for home or office. $135.
