Fall Scents: Going Into The Closet

After this past week of heat, we finally have entered fall.  It still will hit 70 during the afternoon, but the mornings are cool with a bit of marine layer and the darkness is coming earlier and earlier.  I've started to pull out some of the fall scents: the ones that have a bit of fire to them.  Annick Goutal Encense Flamboyant is one of them.  Slightly smoky, slightly musky, slightly spicy, wholly delicious.  Another favorite making its yearly return is Miller Harris L'Air de Rien.  Dark green and with a surprisingly healthy dollop of musk, this one really is better in cooler weather like this.  Which leads me to one that's perfect for fall: Etat Libre's Like This.  With notes of ginger, pumpkin and immortelle, it's not foody, just incredibly comforting.

All these were purchased by me.

Last call for Miriam: if I don't hear from Jill or BlogBaebe1 by this Friday the 22nd I'll choose alternates.

Is it "Oltre" Laura Tonatto men's eau de toilette too summer-y for cool weather? I smell as if i return from a windy day at the open sea, my coat and my hair are wet loaded with salted water. It's the other "me" away from the offices and the conventions. I like this picture.

In total agreement with your 'Like This' pick! So perfect for this time of year! I just acquired a bottle of Bois 1920 Vetiver Ambrato and I've been reaching for that one a lot as well as Laura Mercier Minuit Enchantee (sadly discontinued). (I can't help crossing my fingers that there's still a chance to win some Miriam!)
