Getting Ready for Autumn? Here Are Our 10 Favorite Colognes for Fall!
As seasons change from the scorching heat of Summer, to the cooler winds of Autumn, our preferred scents start to evolve with our ever-changing environment. In the Summer, many of us prefer fresh, airy, and light scents that remind us of the ocean, or the greenery around us. As we transition into the Fall months, we might begin to opt for heartier tones of wood, warm and rich autumnal scents, and darker tones. We drew upon a number of our favorite sophisticated fragrance brands and selected our lineup of the best colognes for men this coming Fall. You’ll definitely want to keep these on your radar for the coming season.
This scent is perfect for anyone who enjoys the brisk forest air as the leaves change from green to gold. The composition opens with softly fresh mandarin, bergamot, litchi and peach. The heart is balmy and thin, with the notes of jasmine, lily of the valley and white lily which perfectly intertwine with the fruity touch of plum, a beautiful cold weather fruit. The woodsy-powdery base is created of vetiver root, amber, musk and vanilla. There is also a faint trace of tobacco, adding fullness and sophistication to this fragrance. We fell for this fall fragrance!
Are you obsessed with sensual and smokey fragrances? If so, this is the perfect fragrance to get you in the mood for fall. One could say that this fragrance is a spiritual experience as it draws upon a cultural experience in Bhutan. With notes of absinth and amber incense, it is rich and intense… and certainly for the boldest of men. If you want to experience journey and adventure with your fragrance, this is the one for you!
Picture this: You are wrapped up in a warm blanket as you can hear the brisk autumn winds outside. You love watching the leaves fall from the trees outside. You simply enjoy the small comforts in life. If you relate, then Velours is the fragrance for you this Fall. Velours—French for “velvet”—is as cozy and comforting as one might guess. This scent is deep, woody notes of amber are softened with voluptuous hints of vanilla, licorice, and musk, forming a blanket of fragrance that is at once soothing and elegant.
As soon as the weather starts to cool, do you dream of escaping to a log cabin? This fragrance evokes the feeling of being in a cozy log cabin in the middle of nowhere, so you can escape despite your location. With notes of silk musk and Hatian vetiver, you will automatically feel warmth with just one spray.
On a cold and rainy day, what is better than curling up and reading a good book? Maison Martin Margiela wanted to invoke the comforting scents of wood wax, old books, and endless bookshelves with this fragrance. You will be transported to a quintessentially English library with a mysterious atmosphere. This Eau de Toilette is a warm yet intriguing fragrance that contrasts peppery, woody notes with lighter notes of Orange Flower Petals, Vanilla and Vetiver.
This is another incredible fragrance from Maison Martin Margiela that we just can’t get enough of. This scent will transform anyone into a fantastical forest dweller. Lure your imagination into the depths of a lush forest where ancient trees stretch across the sky creating a sheltered and leafy Eden. There is an element of freshness, invoking the purified forest air. This is a perfect choice for those who enjoy a more green and woody Eau de Parfum. It is perfectly balanced with elements of Musk and cedar. This is a surreal scent that we certainly approve of for the coming season.
Luna Rossa Carbon by Prada is a Aromatic Fougere fragrance for men. The top notes are bergamot and pepper; middle notes are lavender, metallic notes, coal, watery notes and soil tincture; base notes are Ambroxan and Patchouli. This fragrance is really great year round and could easily become a signature scent for any bold man, but it especially comes to life in the Autumn. We’d say, go ahead and try it!
Do you want to invoke the aura of a sophisticated gentleman? Timelessly sensual, in a pure and understated way, this parfum combines elegance and sophistication making it the perfect fragrance for any gentleman. Armani Code combines a citron cocktail of bergamot scent and lemon with soft notes of olive tree blossom, warmed with Guaiac wood and Tonka Bean. It truly is a seductive eau de toilette for the contemporary man.
This fragrance has been around for a while, and for good reason! A fantastic fragrance created in 2006, Terre d’Hermès is for the man who is a poet by nature. It was created with a specific man in mind, someone who sees the extraordinary in life. Terre d’Hermès contains many woody notes, including Atlas cedar, making it a rich and deep fragrance perfect for Fall. It is also a mix of grapefruit, effervescent orange, gunflint, silex, pepper, baies roses, geranium leaves, patchouli, vetiver, and balm of benzoin which balance it out perfectly. We wouldn’t be surprised if this became your go to scent.
This fragrance is definitely for the daring and passionate man. Named for the Greek God of love, Eros Flame is a fragrance of passion and sensuality. Spritz on a touch of this cologne and those around you will lean in closer (isn't that what we all want when the weather starts getting colder anyways!). The scent begins with top notes of black pepper, orange, rosemary and lemon. This creates a cool spice that is hard to resist. This one will strike you right in the heart!
