    Default Time to fantasize about Autumn and cooler days....

    Time to use fantasy as a way to beat the heat. Imagine...the weather is shifting and there is a slight chill in the air, the leaves on the trees are changing, and you are able to hear the wind blowing through the trees and around the corners of buildings. You are starting to wear sweaters and coats and leather jackets. What fragrance are you going to wear?

    I certainly look forward to wearing my Zirh Corduroy and Ted Baker Endurance once again!

    This makes me fantasize about wearing something like Givenchy Gentleman, Chanel Antaeus, Azzaro pour Homme, Esencia Loewe or Santos de Cartier (maybe, I could throw in, although not at the same time with the aforementioned, some YSL M7, Aramis Tuscany or Gucci Envy for Men)

    Well soon I'll be getting grant money and I have 4 or 5 fragrances lined up for purchase.. but I'll say L'instant de Guerlain.

    One in particular I cant even touch in warm weather is Fleur du Male. So I cant wait for cooler weather to roll in for that one.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Have you tried the White version? Supposedly it's based off of Winter in New York. I plan on blind buying it once I get my grant money. I enjoy the original and most of the flankers so I'm pretty much certain I'll enjoy this one

    Honestly I'm rather enjoying the summer. I've bought 4 fragrances in about 2-3 months, 3 of which were summery fragrances, and I've been able to wear my small decant of VIW in the heat, which is a real joy.

    Default Re: Time to fantasize about Autumn and cooler days....

    I tend towards:

    Michael for Men by Michael Kors
    Burberry London
    L'Instant de Guerlain
    Escada PH
    A*Men
    Gucci Envy
    John Varvatos - Original and Vintage
    Rochas Man

    All at varying times of the day, some more skewed to a night out.

    Not much to fantasize about in London, autumn is pretty much here, especially today...
    I'm thinking to buy Mhyrre Ardente - Annick Goutal, and probably Vetiver Tonka Hermenessence (the last one has got a hilarious price, I'm saving up for it!). This summer, for what summer is worth in UK, I've been wearing APOM Maison Kurkdjian and Eau de Rochas pour homme, and I might carry forward APOM until the end of this year. I bought Eau D'Issey at TKMaxx at bargain price... and gave up on it, it's not really my kind!

    while I kinda follow the (summer scents/winter scents) thing - sometimes I don't. I question 'where will I be mostly today?' And 9 times out of 10, I'm in doors, in a climate controlled office/home/ect... so today, I'm wearing Encre Noire in my cool office building

    That's true, but I always feel a little more in control in cooler weather. You can always add layers of clothes to be more comfortable, but you can only take so much off in summer!

    With that said, I went with Lolita Lempicka au Masculin today and am suffering a little. Im okay in the a/c'd office, but when I step outside, ugh. A little to heavy for humidity wear!

    Hey man, I wore The Beat the other day and worked great in the heat. I was surprised and thought i'd be too much spice. Not at all. Give it a whirl!

    I love the cooler weather. It allows us to wear a wider range of frags. Looking forward to wearing everything in my collection except for the summer ones!

    Default Re: Time to fantasize about Autumn and cooler days....

    Yes, summer is wearing out its welcome around here, too. I am looking forward to chilly weather. I like cold weather clothes, cold weather food, cold weather drinks, and cold weather fragrances. Looking forward to breaking out the gourmands again. I tried L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme on a hot day not too long ago, and it didn't work at all. I had to wash it off. Shame, too - it's one of my favorites in cooler weather.

    I too hate to wish the summer away! I do enjoy my spring/summer fragrances but I absolutely enjoy fall/winter 'fumes! Can't wait to wear Michael for Men and Corduroy! I'm also looking at purchasing more for this fall!

    Me too! These are a couple favorites for fall. I also just tried several samples from Sonoma Scent Studio that I think will very good in slightly milder weather. These were Fireside Intense, Sienna Musk, Ambre Noir, Tabac Aurea - all would be fantastic in cooler climate.
