    Default Fresh Clean scent for Fall/Winter?

    I know a lot of the so called fresh and clean scents are more associated with Spring Summer but i was wondering what you guys would reccomend for the Fall Winter?

    A lot of the "Fall" fragrences are spicey and woodsy. I'm looking for a nice fresh scent.

    Mugler Cologne is a year round pick-me-up.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.
    (From Maldoror by Comte de Lautreamont)

    I second Prada Amber. It's moved into my top three this fall/ winter. I think the suede notes warm it a bit and keep it from being a strictly-summer scent.

    I've been wearing Gendarme a lot lately since discovering it. It does appear to be a good year round fragrance as well.

    212 men it all around and perfect for winter.

    Prada Amber indeed!

    Another one to consider is Calvin Klein's Man - a fresh opening of rosemary and mandarin over a light and fresh violet heart and ending on a base of subtle incense. It smells like a walk through a snowy forest.

    Agreed with Prada Amber and also 212. People always seem to call 212 fresh but for me it's STRONG and definitely seems to have some spice. Probably the "Spice Leaves", "Green Pepper", and "Ginger" that I'm smelling.

    I find Silver Mountain Water to work surprisingly well in the winter time. The bergamot-into-green tea-and-black currents drydown just seems to sparkle in colder weather, while the musk, petit grain, and sandalwood base makes this a very comforting scent to wear. It's my secret winter weapon.

    Completely agree with this and in addition I'd throw Geir into the mix. Both work superbly for me in colder weather .

    I'm a convert to Gendarme 20 as a light scent...it's subjective whether it's too "summery" I think.

    Very fresh, clean lavendar "fresh pressed linen" scent. Gendarme V similar but with a vetiver note.

    The Gendarmes are quite unique and worth a try.

    Azzaro Silver Black/Onyx is quite much an all year fragrance to me. Hugo Boss Bottled too, though a tad sweet unlike the first one.

    Agreed. So much better in cool weather.

    I agree with Creed SMW. It sparkles in cold crisp weather.

    Anything from Gendarme is also worthy of your love. It's the ultimate clean fragrance IMO.

    We don't get fall and winter here so...but I guess omething with a bit of spice would be nice,

    Guerlain Vetiver : Vetiver with a clean soapy vibe and nice spicy zing.

    Silver Shadow silver altitude: A simple fresh scent with a bit of spice in there.

    Lacoste Style in Play : personally, It smells like warm apple pie, but without the pie and cinnamon. lol
    LF: CAP/LID for Creed Original vetiver and Creed Millesime Imperiale, 75ml. Please pm me.. Thanks!

    Creed Tabarome Millesime, Guerlain Vetiver, or Chanel Platinum Egoiste may be up your ally.
