Five Amazing Autumn Fragrances
It only feels like five minutes ago I was blogging about sweet summer fragrances and now I’m thinking about my favourite autumnal scents. Time flies right?! Some of these fragrances are old favourites, others are newer releases which are new loves of mine, but either way, they are my favourite Autumn fragrances!
Comme des Garcons Black Pepper
Comme des Garcons rarely release new fragrances, but when they do, it’s always very exciting! Their latest offering, Black Pepper is one that I got in the Summer, but I felt it was best saved for colder weather, as soon as I put a jumper on, I knew it was time to wear it! Spicy with black pepper, smoky with oud, earthy with cedarwood and patchouli and sensual with musk. This a fragrance I started sharing with my boyfriend, but quickly squirrelled it away because I just don’t want him to use it all up!
This year marks the 85th birthday of Guerlain Shalimar, it was the first fragrance of it’s kind, it’s creation marks the beginning of Florential fragrances. It’s filled with notes of bergamot, rose, jasmine, iris, vanilla and tonka bean. It lasts all day long and it’s heady, rich, exotic, wonderfully powdery, floral and glamourous. It gives me chic Parisian vibes of breakfast at Angelina’s with elegant friends in Chanel suits, chatting over coffee and croissants.
Penhaligon’s Oud de Nil
Oud de Nil is the latest fragrance from Penhaligon’s Trade Routes Collection. It’s inspired by a fantasy journey sailing down the Nile, with scents of rich smoky bergamot, invigorating grapefruit, exotic oud, sensual rose, amber and papyrus. It’s a complex mix of the hot desert, spices, fresh citrus, smoky oud and aquatic accords. Perfectly unisex and absolutely addictive!
Jo Malone London Dark Amber & Ginger Lily
Jo Malone London is one of my favourite perfume brands and Dark Amber & Ginger Lily is one of my favourite fragrances by then. What can I say, it’s just divine! It’s a highlight of the Cologne Intense collection and it’s one of those fragrances which you smell and fall in love with, over and over again! Jo Malone London Dark Amber & Ginger Lily is dark, …… Pure perfection!
Elie Saab Le Parfum
A modern classic fragrance; Elie Saab Le Parfum is radiant, intoxicating and heady. It’s perfectly rich and floral, on a deep, sweet, woody base. A reminder of summer when the days are cold and dark, yet sophisticated enough not to feel out of place on a chilly day. Inspired by light and it makes me feel like I sparkle, when I feel grey.
