As much as we love basking in the summer sunshine, there’s something about the arrival of autumn that makes us feel cosier – there’s a chill in the air, we’re all wearing chunky knitwear, and everything tastes like pumpkin spice. Bliss. And one of the best ways to embrace the autumnal vibes is with a brand new scent.
Think spicy, warm and reviving notes to complement the cooldown and enhance your mood. From woodsy, rich blends to fresh of-the-moment fragrances, here are our picks from some of the best in the perfume business.
Sultry, sensual and just sweet enough, this handcrafted fragrance blends a heart of black tulip and plum with top notes of fresh snowdrops and cyclamen. The warm base of white chocolate and soft woods ensures it lingers on your skin - if you love a statement signature scent, look no further.
Can’t let go of the sunshine? Lumiere Doree from London perfume house Miller Harris features uplifting neroli, bergamot and sweet orange flower notes to boost your mood, while creamy cashmere woods and soft, golden amber ensures it's still in keeping with the autumn vibe.
If you like your perfume jam-packed with woodsy notes, this botanical beauty is a must-have. Ginger, vetiver, vanilla and patchouli combine to create a fragrance that’s a little bit sweet, deliciously spicy, and perfect for wearing with your favourite ‘out out’ outfit.
With an Insta-worthy bottle that makes us feel instantly fancier, this sultry scent isn’t as super-sweet as it looks. With pomelo and pepper top notes drying down to a praline and violet heart, this fragrance feels fresh and modern with its blend of fruity, earthy notes.
