Fall is well and truly here, and along with the captivating colors of the changing leaves that the season brings, come some uniquely autumnal scents. Fall is the season of raw and natural woody scents, comforting aromatic spices (no, not just pumpkin spice!), and the smell of a roaring fire. Why not embrace the season by trying out some new fragrances? Here are some colognes that truly embody the season.
Which will be your fall scent?
Will you go for a rich, woody fragrance? Or a subtly aromatic scent? If you’re not sure what should be your signature scent this season, a perfume subscription box may be ideal for you.
