    I think of leaves turning in the fall, so I think some Lancome Miracle is nice in Autumn to conjure up images
    of the fall foliage and the maple trees.

    Well, I live in Texas so we don't really get an Autumn, per se. That time of year, though, I like rich vanilla or amber frags. Top pick would be l'Artisan's Havana Vanille. Love wearing it when there's a bit of warmth outside because it really seems to blossom. Wonderful frag, IMO.

    The smell of Bel Ami has always reminded me of some of the trees during the fall where I grew up.

    For autumn i prefer to wear citrus and warm fragrances. maybe D&G PH
    Or Carolina herrera CH . It's not Citrus. IT's floral in middle and leather in base.

    For me, I think it would be a tie between Biehl al02 ( oriental stewed fruit ) and Serge Lutens Fille En Aiguilles ( sweet and spicy pine ).

    This is a question I myself was wondering....I look forward to the other answers....

    To throw in my two cents, a frag I could see working in fall would be John Varvartos Vintage with it's pumpkin pie spice/cider notes

    I'd say Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille and/or Burberry London (out of the ones I've gotten to try of course)

    Burberry London. Hands down for me, I wore it on my honeymoon in 2006. Fall in Italy.

    There are a few in my opinion - two of which have already been mentioned:

    Caron L'Anarchiste - I've often said this is "the smell of autumn, bottled." Apple, clove, cinnamon and woods. Excellent!

    Xeryus Rouge - a smattering of fruit along with dry woods that evoke a grey, overcast autumn day.

    MPG Bois de Turquie - soft woods and incense with a good helping of autumnal spices (cinnamon and bay leaf, namely). Autumn near a Turkish temple.
    ***For sale:

    Iris Pallida 50ml

    Ungaro I 75ml

    and more!

    I agree with Michael Kors for Men. There are a lot of good Autumn scents named above, but when I think about the DEFINITIVE Autumn scent, absolutely nothing can touch the dry, warmth of Michael.

    I particularly enjoy Viktor & Rolf Antidote around that time of year.
    The aforementioned Michael also gets another thumbs up.

    Ungaro III- its notes even remind me of dried leaves, overly ripe, even slightly decaying and musty fruit, sweet grapes, burnt wood, incense and oily-powdery smelling florals
    Azzaro pour Homme- burly powerhouse classic, both strong and yet subtle enough for any season, but particularly suitable if combined with rather formal, semi-formal or office-/boardroom-/country club- autumn or winter wear, sheer distinction with and edgy vibe
    Zino Davidoff- another rich and dark, boozy, slightly eccentric powerhouse, immediately suggesting, at least to me, golden-brown, ambery shades of a fine cognac and/or premium quality tobacco, slowly and voluptuously enjoyed in front of the chimney during and overlong, rainy and rather grim autumn day
