Ungaro III has always been like bottled autumn for me.
Thread: The smells of fall. :)
I love fall. It's my favorite season!!
I love pumpkin and apple and the smell of leaves falling. Cool air smells better than hot air. And fireplaces can be lit up again, warm food is served.
I pull out everything pumpkin and cinnamon and pecan and apple scented in my house around this time of year, but that's mainly candles, incense and room spray. But certain fragrances just say fall to me, and this is their time to shine!!
What fragrances define fall for you?
Yang smells just like pumpkin pie to me, so that's definately on the fall must-have list. Hanae Mori EDT is very fall to me as well: initial blast of apple pie, then it moves on to a warm gourmand blend. The EDP version is more winter than fall on me, it's deeper basenotes make it a lot warmer and the chocolate doesn't give off a fall feeling as much as the EDT.
Ungaro III has always been like bottled autumn for me.
Burberry Brit is going to be my signature fragrance this fall, I'm sure of it.
"Wait...is David Bowie really God?" - Penelope Garcia
Balmain de Balmain.
For me, Mechant Loup is one one of the perfect Fall scents ...

And Yves Rocher's Nature Millénaire, although I swapped it.
Hmmm, Mechant Loup seems to fit the bill according to the fragrance description, Bel Ami I think might still be too heavy for fall, how about Brit?
My fall arsenal stands at the ready:
Burberry Brit, Hanae Mori EDT, Opium PH EDP, Gucci Pour Homme, Bel Ami, M7.
Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??
Mmm...Fall and Winter. Time for sweaters, scarves, warm weather hats, and the BEST seasons for perfume! I am looking forward to being able to wear Mitsouko under the collar of a wool sweater - cinnamon/peachy/moss goodness!
I tend to like the heavier, more spicy and leathery men's scents, so bring on the cooler weather and the orientals on men. Love it!
Couldn't agree more. I think that Mechant Loup is almost fall in a bottle. I also think that the John Galliano room spray from Diptyque with its smokiness is in great sympathy with fall.Originally Posted by raptor
Casran by Chopard for me

Burberry London is more of a winter, but could pass for Fall.
Just because a fragrance is expensive, doesn’t necessarily make it smell better than a cheaper one.
I can still pray in the U.S.A. (For now, anyway.)
I'll be reaching for Gucci Nobile more often
Chanel Allure is a good choice for fall. [smiley=thumbup.gif]
M7 will be my fall staple<
I can hear the cries from the peanut gallery already...here comes pavneet with his Caron recommendation. However, I do think that this carries more universal resonance. L'Anarchiste and fall go hand in hand; I couldn't imagine one without the other.
If Rocabar had more staying power it would be my #1 fall fragrance. I´m also fond of Mémoire d`Homme since it reminds me of bonfires the way that it smells when you walk by houses with chimney smoke coming out. Oh and Gucci Rush!! Maybe Zagorsk or Avignon?? And definitely Bel Ami. Now I´m really happy that summer is over!!
These have sparked some ideas!! Mechant Loup is DEFINATELY fall.
I'd also add PIPER NIGRUM to the list of scents for fall.
Speaking of fall, I found a great oil by Green Lady Soap. It's called Woodsmoke and it smells goooood.
I like spicy fragrances for fall. I think Opium is a great fall fragrance.
So many others, I'll have to check and post here again.
Mainly for fall, I use
Paul Smith London
My fall list will be:
Ungaro III----my signature scent no matter what time of year
Floris Santal----will get overtime
Gucci Envy----goes well with a good meal, good company, good times
D&G pour homme----cool weather MVP
Very Sexy 2 for men----very warm
Himalaya----perfect office/work fall scent to me
Cristobal----won't wear to work but will wear to play
Jacomo de Jacomo rouge----a little too suggestive for work but who cares
Rochas Man----same as the preceding two
L'Instant de Guerlain pour homme---will get extra use

I love this time of year. In fact I spend all year waiting for this time between mid September and Christmas. I love the smell of rotting leaves, wood smoke, crisp cool mornings and the colours of autumn. Lancome's Balafre, Carven Homme, the rustic Monsieur Rochas and above all Trumper's Eucris all come into their own about now!
