Create a fragrance that smells heroic with a touch of villainy - that's what Andrew Levine's Lutherville company set out to do. Considering the name on the bottle, it makes sense. The new Stan Lee's Signature Cologne trades on the geek popularity of a comic-book-industry icon who had a hand in creations spanning the good-evil continuum - from Spider-Man, the Avengers and the X-Men to Loki, Magneto and Doctor Doom. Lee wanted the fragrance to smell like they would smell.

MUNICH, Germany - The last thing I expected as I slid my fingers through the handle of my first tankard of beer in Munich was 10,000 voices erupting in a ragged rendition of "Hang On Sloopy." There was no mistaking it, even when sung with a German accent. I was in a cavernous beer tent at Oktoberfest, Munich's salute to its favorite liquid, and like everyone around me, I was determined to squeeze the last drop of fun from the world's biggest kegfest. But "Hang On Sloopy"? Why not "Danke Schoen"?

First, the face:At a glance, it's more a study in geometry than a series of features. The jawbone as angular as an isosceles triangle; the faint lines etched like graph paper around blue eyes; an aristocratic nose, long with a squarish tip; and setting it all off, a nest of blond curls.Put all these together and you have the face that has launched a thousand ads -- clothing, liquor and cologne -- and made its owner, Andy Nelson Jr., one of the most celebrated local models.From the pages of GQ to the runways of Giorgio Armani, the man with the chiseled good looks and easygoing style has worn everything from tuxedos to torn jeans for the camera.

When the divas and the captains of the world of scents gathered at New York's Lincoln Center last week for the 22d annual Fragrance Awards, they were doused with enough cologne to fill a lake.

Presenters included Christie Hefner, Robin Leach, Julie Wilson, Geoffrey Holder and Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, who provided the evening's comic relief.

August means back-to-school shopping, and Delia's has stocked up on fun, hip clothes that are still "classroom appropriate." Here are the store's biggest statements for fall: * The "Freedom Rocks" collection features utilitarian basics with a military edge, such as a pair of canvas army fatigues paired with a patchwork peasant top. * "Wild Frontier" is a carryover from spring's romantic gypsy themes -- this season includes chunky knits. * The "School Babes" group makes use of traditional menswear-inspired clothes.

Let me begin by saying that I am not a man who is overly concerned with his scent, OK?Which is not to say I'm oblivious to my scent, or that every once in a while I don't think of splashing on something with a sandalwood base instead of the same old after-shave.It's just that I don't dwell on my scent the way I dwell on, say, the NCAA basketball tournament.Now, if my scent were offensive in some way, I would, of course, take appropriate steps to correct the problem.But as far as I know, people don't notice my scent.

The man patrolling the long line that wound its way through Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport yesterday morning laid down the new law. Chapstick is in. Lotion is out. "What about cologne?" a passenger hollered to the Transportation Security Administration employee in the airport's busy Concourse D. He shook his head forcefully. No cologne. No perfume. No toothpaste. No suntan lotion. No hair gel. No mouthwash. No Tostitos cheese dip. Not even bottled water.

Tony Pashos just might be the best advertisement NFL Europe has yet to tap. Pashos, who spent a season with the Cologne Centurions two years ago, is grateful Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome sent the then-rookie offensive lineman to the NFL's version of the minor leagues after the 2003 season. "His decision was [to have Pashos] go over there and practice against live bullets," Pashos recalled. "It worked out great. ... You work on the speed of the game and what stances and what movements work and what doesn't.

A visit to Munich should command three days of your time -- perhaps one more if you want to see the famed Nymphenburg Palace (which I skipped), or visit the city's many art museums and galleries (which I sped through). Most travelers flying into Munich spend the rest of their trip visiting the Bavarian Alps and then skipping over to Austria. (Salzburg is a 2 1/2 -hour train ride, and Vienna is another 2 1/2 to 3 hours.) Never one to do things the easy way, I instead opted to see as much of Germany as I could.

Q: I'm hoping I can convince you to uncover another scam in the cosmetics industry, and that is the fragrance industry. Why is it that some fragrances hold and others do not? When I ask the counter people they tell me that I need to layer my fragrance. First I should use a shower gel, then a body cream, then powder, and finally cologne or eau de toilette, but preferably perfume. Of course, I'm only supposed to buy Paris fragrances and never synthetics.I spent a fortune on Lancome's Magic Noir products, including perfume, and it lasted one hour on me. The same thing happened with Givenchy's Ysatis and a host of others.

DUSSELDORF - "It is a great responsibility to play Beethoven and Brahms in Germany," Yuri Temirkanov said a few days before the start of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's European tour. Midway through that trip, he and the ensemble began to honor that responsibility with performances in the country where both composers were born. There will be two more German stops and a visit to Vienna, the Austrian city where the careers of both Beethoven and Brahms blossomed. German audiences still take a proprietary interest in the music of their composers; you could read that in the faces of the crowds that filled concert halls in Cologne on Wednesday night and Dusseldorf last night to hear an American orchestra and a Russian conductor perform German music.
