It’s that time of year again. The days are getting shorter, your face is getting paler and you’re about to spend half your monthly salary on a coat you’ll probably end up leaving in the pub. It’s autumn, and as of this month, you need to rethink pretty much everything: from your skin-care regime to your wardrobe right through to your fragrance.
Remember, summer is all about bright, light scents that disseminate easily in the warm air and bring to mind holidays, with citrus and aquatic notes. In winter, you want the kind of fragrance that stays close to the skin, but is also powerful enough to make itself known in cooler conditions. Lucky then, that the best new scents combine both qualities, making them great for autumn. Here are four of our favourites.More
A bright option, Armani’s latest is a good shout while the weather’s still warmish. Mixing notes of ginger, mint and lemon, imagine a really manly cocktail.
