When I heard about places in medieval Grasse and even-older Èze where you could book an appointment to create your own perfume, I was totally smiling. See some sights, have some fun and bag a trophy souvenir? You bet.

When I came out of my coma in Vancouver General Hospital about six weeks after I was wounded, I thought I was recovering from injuries from an IED strike I survived in the third week of my tour and would soon be back with my battle group.

In the winter months I like a spicier seductive fragrance, a more complicated bouquet that keeps me warm when the temperatures fall below zero. The summer, however, is a time for light airy notes that evoke long walks on the beach and travel to distant lands woven with romance and adventure.

When Tom Ford wrote a list of 15 things every man should have for the 15th anniversary of Vogue.com he spoke of having a good cologne that becomes a signature. I tapped a friend of mine who works for a major cosmetics company for some information about scents and he dropped some serious science on me. So here is the crash course.
I've always loved the idea of a signature scent, something that embodied me and became a personal statement. Fragrance reacts differently on different people, so how your signature scent smells on you and to you is different than how it smells in the bottle.

Remember when your grandmother used to show you how to dab the powdery floral perfume onto your pulse points behind your ears and knees and on your wrists? I tried to follow her advice once, maybe twice, but I get where my grandmother was coming from. A big part of perfume's magic is in the ritual of how you put it on.
My biggest scent-based temptations lie with the bottle. Jo Malone, Calvin Klein, Bobbi Brown, DSquared... it doesn't matter. I need to spritz them all on everyone and anything and no one is the exception -- not even my green-eyed feline Trixie-Belle.
