The Best Men's Fragrances For Autumn 2018

Leaves are falling, it’s starting to get cold, it must be Autumn! But what fragrances should you be wearing this season?

We’ve just left the Summer behind, and now you’ll be thinking about what are the best fragrances for Autumn.There’s so many scents which can work for this season, but I’ve picked out those which are specially suited to this time of year.

The colour most associated with Autumn is brown, we think of leaves falling and so woody scents are the perfect choice. We don’t need the heavy hitters of super warming scents more suited to Winter, but something to warm you up nonetheless.

Notes to look out for when choosing a fragrance are woody, masculine, musky, spicy, aromatic and floral types of scents.

Best avoided are the citrus heavy, sweet, aquatic or fresh scents which are better suited to the Spring or Summer.

Music Playlist August 2019 – Summer Bangers 2010 – 2019

Thursday, 29th August, 2019

The Michael 84 Playlist

The summer is almost over! 🙁

As with tradition for this summer, I thought I would create a playlist which is filled with summer bangers. I’ve already done a 90’s summer playlist, the 00’s summer playlist, and now it’s time to bring things up to date with the playlist from 2010 until now.

There hasn’t been too many massive summer bangers of late, I think we’ve definitely had less and less as the years have gone on…Or maybe I am not romanticising the music of today like I did of the previous years.

Either way, here’s my playlist of songs which I enjoyed in the summer, from 2010 until now. They may not have been released in the summer, but I was certainly listening to these back in the hot days of the years gone by.
