Edward Bess Eau La La ($65, bergdorfgoodman.com)
Despite its Frenchy Can-Can name, Mr. Bess’s first crack at fragrance shows he is as skilled in scent as he is in makeup and skin care. At first, you smell vanilla cake frosting. A few seconds later, that’s overcome with frankincense and amber. A moment later, gardenia. It’s like a new nuzzly cashmere blanket that you don’t want to take off.
