    Question Favorite Autumn/Winter fragrances? (Looking to add a couple to my wardrobe)

    Well it's heading towards the Autumn / Winter season in the Northern hemisphere and I'm looking to add a couple of new weapons to my arsenal! I just picked up a bottle of CK Obsession (not usually a CK fan but I love Obsession) but still want a couple more. Love to hear what you guys reach for when you can see your breath outside.

    Will be adding Sienne l'Hiver to my collection. It's the perfect autumn/winter scent.

    Wow thanks guys, I need to get testing pretty quick!

    I think this thread has made my mind up on the M7, lots mention it and I've been close to buying it a few times.... gunna get it today.

    Nobody has mentioned Rive Gauche.... I haven't tested it yet but it seems to have a good backing by members here... would that make a good winter choice??

    i would say rive gauche is more versatile than m7, which is more an evening/night scent.

    i have rive gauche in my list too but am not sure with m7 cause i prefere gucci pour homme until now, it´s also more versatile.

    and don´t forget my signature frag terre d´hermes, which you can use alltime ( summer, winter, day & evening )

    Rive Gauche is a wonderful fragrance - everyone should try it once. However, I can't say that it conjures up visions of autumn/winter. It's just not that kind of scent.

    My fav' autumn/winter scent: Ambre Narguile by Hermes

    Thanks for the replies lads.

    I made a quick stop in my local John Lewis store to try Rive Gauche and I would agree with mikeperez23 that it is very nice but not a quintessential winter frag.

    My short list so far looks like:

    M7
    Egoiste (I already have the Platinum)
    Gucci PM
    Guchi Envy
    Burberry London/Brit (although I will not enjoy the brand name as in the UK it has become an Icon for the 'chav' who are pretty much trailer trash scum!!!)

    Couldn't deal with this sooner, since it's been 80s here all week, but 60 degree range temps. approaching so, here's mine:

    JHL
    Sables
    Heritage
    Antico Caruso
    Aramis
    Knize Ten

    Looking for one more to make seven for seven days a week. The list as it is, however, is pretty good IMHO.
