It’s official - autumn is here. Prepare the spiced lattes, put on something comfy and roll around in some newly fallen leaves if you’re so inclined. Or, you could just try one of these seasonal spritzes instead…
With the weather cooling down, spicy, warm notes and intense formulations are on the menu. Think smokey muscs, evocative, blooming floral dry-downs and notes of vanilla and amber that wrap you up in a delicious olfactory embrace.
These are the best autumnal fragrances to invest in this season:
Jo Malone London Scarlet Poppy Cologne Intense
This sweetly decadent spritz serves up an intensely intoxicating blend of scarlet poppies, ambrette, and tonka bean that will cocoon you in a comforting haze of warm florals. oreish notes of almond, vanilla and tobacco tempt and tantalise the senses as it dries down.
Givenchy L'Interdit Eau de Parfum Intense
This toasty floral fragrance utilises unexpected notes of salty, roasted sesame to compliment a rich bouquet of orange blossom, tuberose, and vanilla. This intense offering is grounded with a heady blend of vetiver and patchouli.
Narciso Rodriguez For Her Musc Noir EDP
Take advantage of the last of summer’s stone fruit with this pick’s plummy accords. Heliotrope adds brightness to this spritz, while sensual notes of musc, leather and suede add a decidedly dark, seductive air to the mix.
Ralph Lauren Fragrance Woman Intense Eau De Parfum
Warm white florals and vanilla are the key culprits for this truly addictive olfactory blend. Opulent jasmine sambac and fresh orange flower intoxicate senses like a spiked pick-me-up, balanced by rich notes of sandalwood and vanilla that comfort and soothe.
Penhaligon's Cairo EDP
Spice that’s reminiscent of liquid gold and Egypt serves as the inspiration behind this saffron-infused offering. Rosey oud and labdanum add a touch of undeniable decadence, while patchouli evokes airs of a ceremonial haze typical of ancient temples.
Amouage Crimson Rocks
Inspired by the mountains of Oman as they’re illuminated by the last rays of the April sun, this majestic scent somehow blends together rose and cinnamon to create a warm and smoky, yet feminine, scent. The dry down leaves the skin with addictive notes of oakwood, enhanced with vetiver and red cedarwood. Delightful.
