For a long time I just used MWF soap along with Thayer's witch hazel as my post shave treatment. I have been branching out trying a variety of soaps and aftershaves. I find myself thinking that various ones would be great for different times of the year. I am curious as to what scents others find they really enjoy for each season.

You can use what you like year round.

With that said, I prefer the lighter fresher scents during the warm season and the heavy hitters for the colder season.

Warm season: All citrus based, aquatics and fresh scents in general like fougeres
Cold season: Leather, tobacco, oud, sandalwood, cedarwood, vanilla and sweet spicy grourmands

+ 1

With the climate I live in I will also wear "cold" season fragrances in the evening during the summer.

Thank you gentlemen for your responses. It definitely gives me a great starting point, but of course the wife will determine the end point.

Follow this, and you can't go wrong. Since we're heading into cooler weather, I'd probably start with a nice Sandalwood, which is a scent that your wife would probably like.

It's easy:

Winter - AV
Spring - AV
Summer - AV
Fall - AV

And for a change of pace Osage Rub  24

AV=Aqua Velva?

For thinking back to childhood days, I go for Old Spice which I used today!

My preferences are similar. For most of the year I have warm/hot weather so I need additional menthol kick.
