The Best Autumn Fragrances For Men

The Best Men's Fragrances For Autumn

Autumn is such a good season for fashion and fragrances. It’s not too hot where you can’t wear a jacket, and it’s not too cold where you have to completely layer up. Picking a scent is within the same mould as fashion. It’s a great crossover where you can still wear a scent which is fresh or with a hint of citrus, but you can also warm up the evenings with a bit of musky or woody fragrances. What exactly do I look for when I choose a fragrance for the season of Autumn?

Tips for picking a fragrance for Autumn

From Summer comes Autumn, and with that darker nights and colder weather is setting in. I really like certain notes when it comes to an autumn scent, but it also depends on the setting, and time. This can be split up into casual or formal, and day wear or evening wear. So with that said, there’s four possible scenarios for picking a scent, but some scents will work well in more than one, and some will work in all situations. In the Autumn we have more night than day, and it’s generally colder than warm, so I pick out scents based on that. I love notes which are woody, musky, floral, spicy, oriental and mildly fresh, and stay away from strong citrus types of scents which are more suited to a crisp spring morning or summers day. The scents should give off a sensual, warm and inviting feeling, masculine but not be too overpowering.

The Best Scents For Autumn 2017


Dior Sauvage

Dior Sauvage was released last year, and it’s such a great scent for the evening. It’s very masculine, and combines some old style musk and woody notes with more modern sophisticated spicy notes, with the result being a really warm and inviting scent. It’s a really great choice for casual and formal settings in the evenings.


Polo Blue Eau De Parfum

Polo Blue Eau De Parfum is another fragrance for the evening, which is seductive and inviting, and definitely a warm scent which is perfect for the autumn nights with friends, date nights and after work drinks. Being an eau de parfum it can be used sparingly, a few sprays is all that’s needed for this powerful scent.


BOSS Bottled Oud

Brand new in 2015 came BOSS Bottled Oud, and it comes after other favourites from the series including the original BOSS Bottled and BOSS Bottled night. Oud fragrances are loved and coveted by many, and are synonymous with elegance and masculinity. This one is no different, with warm woody notes and the sophistication of BOSS, it’s an instant hit.


Armani Code

An old favourite of mine is Armani Code. It’s more oriental and spicy than it is woody, with the spicy notes being sophisticated and soft rather than a spiky punchy feel. It’s a good go to scent when you’re looking for something sensual and inviting, without a strong musky element to it.


Bleu De Chanel

A favourite of many, Bleu De Chanel is an elegant fragrance with a little soft spice and musk to it. It’s smooth, and great for both a casual and slightly more formal evening.


Tom Ford Grey Vetiver

The gentleman of scents, Tom Ford Grey Vetiver arrives for those who are looking for an extra bit of sophistication without making a fuss. It’s aromatic and earthy mild hints of woods, it will make you feel as refined and grown up as this scent is.

Dolce And Gabbana The One For Men

Dolce And Gabbana The One

Dolce And Gabbana The One is a scent which is almost 10 years old, but it’s a really great woody and spicy scent perfect for the Autumn. It’s a good masculine scent which is a modern take on an old style of scents.

Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Fragrance

Viktor And Rolf Spicebomb

Viktor And Rolf Spicebomb is exactly how it sounds, spicy, and has a sweetness to it.

Zadig & Voltaire This Is Him Review

Zadig et Voltaire This Is Him!

Zadig et Voltaire This Is Him! is a newer fragrance, only released in 2016. It’s an aromatic scent which I think is perfect for Autumn, a little smokey and will warm you up on a chilly evening.

Molton Brown Absolute Tobacco

Molton Brown Absolute Tobacco

Another bottle which leaves nothing to the imagination, Molton Brown Absolute Tobacco is smokey and has that inviting tobacco scent which is a distinctive note.

Dior Homme Intense

Dior Homme Intense

Perfect for an evening out, Dior Homme Intense is another modern take on a classic masculine style of a smell. Woody, aromatic and very slightly floral, it’s a really nice and refined men’s scent.

Trussardi Uomo Fragrance Review

Trussardi Uomo

One of the most underrated scents in my opinion is Trussardi Uomo. It’s super inviting scent, and whereas many of these scents are all about old school woody notes, this one is not a classic in that regard, but it’s so aromatic, smooth and soft. This is a one to wear out with the boys or if you’re out with a girl, she’ll thank you for wearing it.
