Bottega Veneta Pour Homme Extrême

We're not the only ones who slow down a bit as the temperatures nosedive. Scent molecules get a bit sluggish too. Lighter, warm-weather perfumes just don't waft in the chill. It takes a gutsier, more intense fragrance to go the distance from your skin to a neighbouring nose. So it's time for a different perfume from the one you wore all summer – or is it? Do you switch your scent as the leaves start to change? The Lipstick League wants to know: do you have a go-to Fall fragrance?

After all that babble about scent-molecule slow-down, I have to confess: I wear the same scents in warm weather as I do in cool. I favour light, citrussy men's scents year-round; I don't have a go-to Fall fragrance. That said, it's a good time for my Bottega Veneta Pour Homme Extrême, a woody, aromatic scent with bergamot, juniper, fir, and rich leathery notes.

At the bottom of this post, don't forget to tell me what you're wearing for Fall!
