    Default Looking for a fall / dead leaves kinda scent

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a good autumn scent?

    Versace Man, has this kind of effect on me. The juice inside ugly bottle worth a try.

    Id go with either Burberry London, or the widely-appreciated Terre de Hermes.

    It seems like my answer to everything these days is Lorenzo Villoresi Vetiver, but that's my suggestion here. It smells to me like being in the woods and burying your face in good dirt and decomposing leaves, while somebody burns rosewood in a campfire off in the distance.

    Léonard pour Homme -- hands down.

    Versace L'homme is also a good choice, as is The Dreamer, as is JHL, as is Carven Homme.
    Still, you can't beat Léonard pour Homme for fall.
    Read the reviews -- very, very good stuff.

    CB I Hate Perfume, Burning Leaves. The scent of October. The promise of harvest and of a slow descent into winter. The way the air would change, becoming slightly cooler and take on the smell of fires made by neighbors burning fallen leaves and branches. My friends and I raking leaves with our sole goal of creating the biggest pile of leaves possible so we make repeated running dives into the pile and roll around in it until we smelled of dirt and dead leaves. Smoke from chimneys as the first fires of the season were lit. Waking up in the early morning hours to close the window because of the cool night air coming in through the screen. Breathing the smoke-tinged cool air as I shivered, closed the window, then returned to bed. Playing pick-up football games in a friend's front yard until it was dark and we were all late for dinner.

    I just ordered this one so I'm pretty psyched now.

    Azzaro Visit and even more so Gucci PH both have a "fall leaves" sort of impact on me.

    As always, disregard most of what I say. It's not worth your heart health to actually worry about what a 23 year old guy from Kansas thinks. Even if he is really ridiculously good looking.

    Histoires des Parfums 1740 Marquis de Sade - it's sweet, features imortelle, but smells like wet wood floor. This one would be a basenotes hit if people knew about it!

    I like De Sade too, Supes. However, it is very heavy and sticky and will definitely not be to everyones taste.
