Men’s 2023 Fall Fragrance Roundup

Image courtesy of thesaltlaketribune.com

Autumn could arguably be considered the best season when it comes to fragrances. While summer tries its best to give us scents that smell like the beach, nothing beats the smell of wood, pine, fire, and other natural scents that surround us. Sure, people are tying up their boats and putting their beach equipment in storage units to prepare for the cold months ahead. But men still naturally love being outdoors, indulging in nature and whatnot. And their fragrance can reflect that.

Fashion Reverie wanted to factor in what most men care about when selecting a fragrance for themselves—the scent itself as it pertains to the season while smelling your absolute best. Say goodbye to those musky bottles of Axe and exchange those fragrances for a scent that focuses on a season rooted in natural elements. 

This roundup of men’s fragrances contains new and current scents, which should help put you ahead of the curve when it comes to standing out this season. There is truly no exact formula when it comes to finding the best cologne. However, it’s important to understand the classification notes that make up a scent.

From luxury scent leaders like Viktor & Rolf and Maison Margiela to artisan perfumers like Jean-Claude Ellena, D.S. & Durga, and Chris Collins, Fashion Reverie has you covered. It’s time to say goodbye to those dreadful days of figuring out the ideal cologne and take a dive into our top selections.
