    24 gold has been my staple for the winter holidays, especially on Christmas Eve's family dinner.

    It brings back good memories.

    Hey guys!

    Just Starting Out is a better spot for "what should I wear to X" type threads as it lends itself more to simpler answers than discussion, so I moved this one over! While it seems that this thread has been created as a US-specific discussion, our non-US members might want to volunteer ideas also for other holidays.

    GPH1 is what I will probably wear on a crisp fall day in Oklahoma.

    Just my SOTD- but considering that it's late autumn/winter, it will probably either a gourmand fragrance like Rochas Man, Gucci Envy or a slightly heavier, "darker" fragrance like Ungaro III or Chanel Antaeus.

    Maybe CAEB it's soothing for get together with family and friends, most importantly to be thankful for all , especially this significant but in the likes of what less fortunate through out the world are succumbing, abiding and suffering through...etc to, makes you put things in perspective and how thankful to have this hobby-profession...etc of ours ... ...Don't mean to be gloomy just appreciative GOD has bless us all here in basenotes with beautiful scents created by fellow man and women ..."In everything I give thanks"
    "Thank GOD for the nose, for without it we would not be enjoying these beautiful created Scents"

    I usually just give a reach for whatever I'm feeling that particular day. That said, I think Slumberhouse's Rume gives off a winter holiday vibe and I absolutely love it for that reason. It totally reminds me of Christmas as a kid.

    It's hard to wear that one and not think of the holidays (or potpourri). It's like mulled everything!

    There was a Hallmark store that my family would go to every year to get a new ornament for the Christmas tree. There was a particular potpourri they used in their store displays, it's Rume to the tee. Wearing Rume brings me back to those little Christmas town displays and being a young kid anticipating Christmas...Feels like forever ago. God, I'm getting old considering that was like 20 years ago.

    Great choice!

    I am thinking maybe that, or one of these:

    Creed Spice & Wood (perfection is good for any occasion)
    nu_be Helium [2He]
    Guerlain Bois d'Armenie
    Creed Royal Oud
    Ormonde Jayne Ormonde Man
    Ramon Monegal Umbra


    Or, more likely, just whatever strikes my fancy that morning that I haven't worn in a while...

    I'm going to be wearing Frapin Pasion Boisee. I recently bought this fragrance, my first niche fragrance btw!, and I have been enjoying it so much. Rum, nutmeg, tangerine all take center stage. They are perfectly blended and to me it's very well suited to the fall season. I will wear this thanksgiving and am excited to see the feedback I will get from family and friends
