Bel Ami smells like fall to me.
What frags are the best 'smell like fall' scents? I love my Allure during the fall, as well as Terre Hermes.
I could always use another bottle lol.
Bel Ami smells like fall to me.
The Bark Bites Back.
In my opinion, I love that the scents I wear during fall - without being gourmands - suggest the "usual" smells of fall, including: dry leaves, smoke, wood, ripe fruit, mainly grapes, fog, wine, almost wintry spices, damp earth
I always felt that, more or less, fragrances like: Aramis Classic and Tuscany, Azzaro PH, Chanel Antaeus, Ungaro III, Givenchy Gentleman are among to ones not just suitable for autumn wear, but even capable to convey the sensation of "autumn smells"
I get a great fall vibe from Burberry London. The longevity is about 4-5 hrs on me (which is why I didn't buy it; I want it to last the whole 7 hr school day), but if you can reapply the boozy smell is very nice, and coupled with the gingerbread scent I get, it's unbeatable for a nice, cool fall day.
Rive Gauche YSL
Gucci Pour Homme I
L'Anarchiste (bought this in the summer, wanna get to know it better)

Michael Kors Michael for Men. It has a sweet and spicy quality that reminds me of the scent of fallen leaves.
Burberry London, Michael for Men, Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford, Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille, L'Artisan Tea For Two, Encens Flamboyant by Annick Goutal, Messe de Minuit by Etro... are some of the scents I get fall-vibes from. None of them actually smells like the fall. I wish I could find a fragrance that smelled just like a fall day, with fresh air, fallen leaves and too ripe apples.

encre noir....rain and burning leaves...polo also
Knize Ten !
I've found one closer to the scent you are describing though. Skarb by Humiecki and Graef. Skarb opens with a faint hint of lemon, it smells more like real frankincense smoke (which is far more lemony than most people think). Quickly a dry grass or straw or haylike note joins in, along with the roman chamomile note which provides a "too ripe apple accord" (roman chamomile is well known to smell like apples. The word chamomile comes from greek and actually means "earth apples.")
All of this is over a slightly salty and dry lovage note along with some myrrh and woods. It smells very yellow and dry, and yet fresh and very alive and natural, too.
Regarding the initial question, here are some absolute MUST SNIFF scents for fall:
MPG Bois de Turquie
Parfum d'Empire Wazamba
Let Me Play The Lion
Creed Tabarome Millesime
l'eau bleue d'issey pour homme has this early september melancholy about it.
Sycomore smells like fall to me. Whereas a scent I find quite similar, Terre d'Hermes, smells like summer and barbecues... Sycomore is more the smoky, fallen-leaves autumn essence.
In one way or another:
Patou pour Homme
Leonard pour Homme
Azzaro pour Homme
Balenciaga pour Homme
Montana Parfum d'Homme
Paco Rabanne pour Homme
L'Air du Desert Marocain
Eau des Iles
Mitsouko; a fragrance for all Seasons. Aso Tumulte by Christian Lacroix, Parfum Sacre by Caron, Aomassai by PG, Ambre Sultan by Serge Lutens, and Kyoto.
For Fall, I like Ralph Lauren's Pig Pony 2 with it's notes of chocolate and musk. Here is a review of the fragrance by Chandler Burr:
I experience very good longevity with this fragrance. I picked up a friend from the airport about 9 hours after applying Big Pony 2. When she embraced me, she immediately remarked that I was wearing a beautiful scent.

Amouage Tribute is fall
In no particular order in my collection:
Odin 04 Petrana, Jubilation XXV, Burberry London/LondonSE, Polo Green, John Varvatos Vintage.
There are a lot of great ones for Fall. The one that I will always reach for each year when the first chill hits the air is Michael Kors for Men. The whole scent is just explicitly all about Autumn from top to bottom.
I'll be busting out Mouchoir de Monsieur soon
The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.
a BIG +1 to YSL Rive Gauche pour Homme

Hell... fleurs d'oranger give me an autumn vibe to it (here in Seville, autumn it's not what it's on other places )
