The arrival of autumn signals a timely moment to switch up your fragrance game from zesty summer notes to warming autumnal tones. The discerning gent doesn’t have to tone it down, more so dial up those fragrant ingredients that switch up the scent spectrum. The autumn and winter months allow for bolder scents as we head into the festive season and all that it brings to the senses. Here, DiscerningGent.com picks out a few new men’s fragrances, one of which will soon be your new signature scent.
Creed Aventus Cologne
The house of Creed has been crafting fragrances for more than 260 years, so they have heritage and a track record in producing scents that capture the attention. The new Aventus Cologne is a bold creation, featuring bursts of aromatic ginger, mandarin and pink peppercorn to complement the traditional autumnal hues of patchouli, vetiver and sandalwood. Although, it doesn’t stop there, as musk and birch trail off.
RRP £175 for 50ml – Creed
Prada Luna Rossa Ocean
This new masculine scent by fashion house Prada employed the use of technology to get an even purer scent onto the skin of the discerning gent. A special refinement process involving a molecular distillation that allows only the finest scent molecules to be selected over unwanted ones to give a 100% purity to each ingredient used. The result is a burst of bergamot and black pepper, layed with lavender and saffron accord with a musky base and notes of patchouli. It’s quite the infusion.

Tom Ford Ombré Leather Parfum
Inspired by the wildness of the great American West, Ombré Leather is a distinct scent that leaves a unique floral/leather based composition. Kicking off with freshly cut violets paired with sensual cedarwood, it then combines hits of jasmine with India orpur and honeysuckle. The result of luxurious black leather notes is undeniable and really highlights how Tom Ford and the perfumers within his fashion house know how to devise a truly masculine signature scent.
