Thread: Fall october vibe
I am new to frags, I am not a collector I just want to find the right smells for me. So I am wondering what smells like the fall? I am looking for something a male would wear that has the vibe of pumpkins, changing leaves, fresh air/cool vibe. I do not know if there is such a thing I am willing to spend some money not too much 150 tops depending on how amazing the smell is. I have tried burberry london did not like it at all on my skin smelt like bad curry on me. It did remind me of christmas a bit on a strip. Anyways thank you guys for your time.
A couple great fall frags for me:
Ted Baker Endurance
Witness by Jacques Bogart
Arabie by Serge Lutens
Eau Noire by Christian Dior
Caron L'Anarchiste - fall in a bottle.
MPG Bois de Turquie - also very autumn oriented, although a bit more austere with the incense note. Lots of ginger, bay, and cinnamon here mixed with florals (orange blossom + jasmine) over sandalwood, incense and patchouli.
Givenchy Xeryrus Rouge - captures the vibes of one of those overcast autumn days - very grey and dry, although quite sweet. An interesting juxtaposition of textures and characteristics.
Davidoff Adventure - peppery orange that fades to a strong sesame seed note coupled with allspice (gives a foody, clovey nutty vibe), over a base of sandalwood and vetiver. Spicy and warm, one of my fall favorites.
Thanks! You guys here are awesome!
It doesn't smell like fall, but every autumn when we get the first crisp, cool day - I inevitably break out my Michael by Michael Kors. I've said it before it is my quintessential fall fragrance.
cool air, mist in the air: dior fahrenheit
warm autumn, reds and oranges: caron l'anarchiste
Tauer's L' air du desert Maroccain. Smoky and wonderful for fall.

Eav Des Bavx
Geranium Pour Monsieur
Cereus #4 (when leaves first change color and it's still nice out, a bonfire far away)
Orange Spice (don't like it)
Bowling Green (early fall when pinecones first fall and grass is still green)
And if you don't like Burberry London, try Bogart Pour Homme ! :P
I second Rocabar.

+1 Michael Kors, TdH, Burberry London, L'air Du Desert Marocain and Jubilation XXV. How could I forget those?
Some more for consideration:
Grain De Plaisir (late summer, very early fall. Just as the grass begins to dry out and turn brown)
Let Me Play the Lion
M7 (late fall)
Kenneth Cole Black (this would be late fall/first snowfall - a melancholy scent of still earth. Popular and 'overplayed', but a pretty good scent if you ignore that).
