    Default Beginning of Autumn/Fall - Your Top 10 (Designer) Rotation

    My criteria:
    1. Must be designer
    2. Must be either good in cool weather, and some average temperature days.
    3. Generally spicy/aromatic fragrances (but not necessarily)
    4. Must project well, but not too strongly

    Here's my rotation that I'm planning to try out. Also, I find that some winter fragrances (on the coldest days of fall) and most Spring fragrances can work as well.

    10. Paco Rabanne's 1 Million
    Blood orange, cinnamon, great night-out and clubbing scent, but good overall.

    09. Midnight In Paris
    A sweet powdery tea-based fragrance, like Bulgari Black but more smooth and feminine. Either a man or woman can wear this.

    08. Versace The Dreamer
    It's opening is controversial, but the drydown is heavenly. Lilies, tonka bean, vanilla, tobacco. If you like Le Male, you make like this, but just don't go out until an hour after applying.

    07. YSL's La Nuit de L'Homme
    The sweet fresh base of L'Homme, but darker hotter and spicier with cardamom. As it dries down it gets spicier.

    06. Chanel Platinum Egoiste
    Leafy green, sandalwood. A much more wearable version of Chanel's Egoiste, great for a fall night.

    05. Burberry London
    Leather, cinnamon and sweet tobacco.

    04. Gucci Pour Homme II
    A great black tea fragrance.

    03. Chanel Allure Homme
    Sophisticated, profoundly versatile. Don't be without this one.

    02. YSL's Rive Gauche
    Lavendar, basil, patchouli. Masculine, but subtle. A must-own at a very affordable price.

    01. Dior Fahrenheit
    Violet, honeysuckle, bergamot, leather. Redolent of motor oil, rubber tires and gasoline. Masculine to the core, especially in its newest reformulation.

    How about you?

    2 Man
    Avignon
    Knize Ten
    Or Black
    Kouros

    My top 10 designer scents for any season would be the first ten designer scents picked from my collection at random each day.

    I will probably rotate:
    Macassar
    Antaeus
    Ungaro III
    Jules
    Boss Spirit
    Van Cleef & Arpels PH

    Every now and then i'll long for some lighter fragrance, and it will most likely be Eau de Rochas pour Homme or Bleu de Chanel or Gucci Envy. Usually one day's wearing the lighter scent is enough, then back to the rotation of the "heavy" ones.

    Edit. Had to add Van Cleef & Arpels PH - my vintage bottle arrived today and it's really, really nice fragrance. I'm very happy that i bought it.

    It's still too warm out for me to start wearing any of my fall scents, but I assume I'll be wearing:

    - Gucci Pour Homme (2003)
    - Gucci Pour Homme II
    - Fahrenheit
    - Aventus (on warmer days)
    - Givenchy Play Intense (occasionally)

    And I'm seriously considering adding these to my wardrobe for fall:
    - L'Occitane Eau des Baux
    - Hanae Mori H.M.
    - Hanae Mori HiM
    - Bvlgari Black

    You jarred my memory with a few of these.
    Gucci Envy would be in my rotation, along with Rive Gauche and a Boss frag (though it would be no.1 for me not Bottled)
    Others would be Egoiste, maybe original Obsession, Dior Homme, Fahrenheit (if I had some) and possibly Allure Homme Biagiotti Roma or Daniel hechter Caractere.
    Oh, and I forgot to mention Michael Kors
