Autumn is a time when the leafs start changing and the temperature begins to drop before we head into yet another unforgiving winter. With the change in season, not only does your wardrobe have to alter from what you were wearing in the sweltering months of summer, but so does your scent of choice. There are plenty of light summer fragrances that are perfect for those months, yet, don’t seem to fit or even work well when Fall rolls around on the calendar. For this post, I want to offer some suggestions for men’s colognes that work well during the months of autumn and point you to wear you can find them. I tried to include at least a few options that were inexpensive for guys out there who may be on a tight budget.

John Varvatos– A mature and spicy fragrance that doesn’t need to overpower in order to be effective. Varvatos is a romantic cologne that will have women lingering around to find out what you are wearing. Notes include: tamarind leaves, herbs and dates, with spice, woods, leather and vanilla.
Joop!– A great scent for those autumn nights spent out on the town and a cologne that is really affordable.

Notes include: exotic spice and florals, with woods, patchouli and honey. Joop! Review
