    Default Your Top 10 for Fall 2011

    Fall season is coming and we all have to be ready! I was wondering what were your choices both from the past and the present that must or should come back or make a debut this season.

    For the people living in the southern hemisphere you can post you Top 10 Spring Scents if you wish!

    cheers!

    My list (a sort of pre-list, it may change) goes like this:

    Tom Ford's BOVdF
    Chanel No.22
    Borneo 1834
    SL's Chêne
    Malle's Une Rose
    Chanel's Allure Homme
    Boucheron's Jaïpur Homme EDP
    Guerlain's Samsara EDT
    Cuba by Cuba Paris
    Amouage's Lyric Man


    Honorable mention: SL's Datura Noir and Caron's Nocturnes (vintage) because lemons might be a nice contrast with the rest.

    what are your choices?
    cheers

    That's an extremely versatile list, castorpollux!

    We are at the moment on the verge from summer to fall...

    I have a feeling this will play a role this fall:

    Tabac Blond (surprise! I went through crazy 100+ mls last fall and winter)
    En Avion
    Pois de Senteur Chez moi (it's on top of my buy list)
    Shalimar (more than usual, because I don't reach that often for it, but I feel a crave developping)
    Vol de Nuit
    Mouchoir de Monsieur
    L'Heure Bleue
    Cuir de Russie (Parfum, Chanel)
    Diaghilev (or some vintage chyprés I like)

    can't think specifically of a tenth at the moment... so, let's leave it like this!

    Hee-hee, snort.

    Creed Aubepine Acacia appeals to me more in the fall than at any other time.
    24 Faubourg keeps a body warm within a golden glow.
    L'Heure Bleue is just so darn snuggly.
    Mitsouko seems so smart amidst crunchy fall leaves.
    McEvoy Sexy 9 is as sweet and warm as a delicious hot toddy.

    With five like these, who needs ten?

    Fantastic list, Dane . I've never smelled Kenzo Winter Flowers, so I'll substitute it for Cuir Mauresque. As for your Boucheron parfum, I've only smelled the EdT in the round bottle. So, I'll swap it out for Eau des Baux. To make up the full 10, I'll add: En Avion extrait and Mitsouko EDP / Parfum.

    Though it's still pretty warm (and I like it that way, so I'm not one to rush the warmth of summer away) it's just starting to cool off so I suppose I should have a few in mind for sweater-weather.

    I wear some of these year-round, but I find them particularly perfect and beautiful when there's a chill in the air. They're not in order of preference -

    Chanel Coromandel
    Chanel Coco
    By Kilian's Rose Oud
    Agent Provocateur L'Agent
    Tom Ford Noir de Noir
    Jessica Simpson's Fancy Nights
    Hermès Rouge
    Ava Luxe Ambra Tibet
    Ava Luxe Opoponax Intense
    Frederick Malle Portrait of a Lady
    Roberto Cavali Oro


    Yeah, that's 11 ...sorry. I wanted to list 20!
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Oh Joe, I want to steal this for a signature!! Those of us in temperate climes can certainly get away with it- LOL!

    I find I pull out Chergui,Mahora, and Nuit de Noel more in colder weather. It's hard to wear something named after Christmas in mid-summer no matter where you live, I think.
