No need for plane tickets and passports this fall -- the world is just a spritz away. Dock in Calabria with Zegna's Uomo, a tribute to southern Italy with notes of bergamot, violet, and cedar wood. Or decamp to Timbuktu, bottled up in L'Artisan Parfumeur's evocative blend of mango, papyrus, and myrrh. You can also cross over to Asia: Hermes has recreated the herbaceous smell of Kerala after a monsoon, while Japan's delicious plums have inspired a fruity new fragrance by Tom Ford. Then end your journey in the Pacific with Wildblue Noir, reminiscent of a Hawaiian breeze spiced with coffee beans and dark chocolate. Trust us: What you'll miss in sights and sounds you'll make up for in compliments.
