3. Costume National Soul EDP
This fizzy concoction is like the first summer Aperol cocktail. It's light yet heady with notes of pure amber, geranium and oud wood. Something for those who like to stand out from the pack. EDP, $199 (100mL), libertineparfumerie.com.au.

5. David Beckham Beyond EDT
We get it, not everyone has hundreds of dollars to splash out on fragrance. Goldenballs' latest offering smells like it costs triple the price thanks to inclusions such as top notes of mojito, mids of black pepper and bases of vanilla and leather. EDT, $39 (60mL), priceline.com.au.
6. Jo Malone Incense & Cedrat Cologne Intense
This ideal cool weather scent is rich and redolent. Think amber, wood and resin. All brightened with a touch of citrus thanks to cedrat. Calling it now, this is a modern classic. $230 (100mL), jomalone.com.au.
