Autumn Fragrances We Can’t Live Without
This Fragrance Friday I would love to introduce you to my favourite fragrances for autumn. With shorter moody days and long, dark evenings, I feel, that I need something more signature, more intense, but still very girly. Perfume, that will awaken my senses. So I selected the below fragrances that are just perfect for those autumnal days and evenings. Oh and instead of just showing you pictures if them, my super talented colleague Mee Jong sketched them for you.
I love this perfume, because it opens with a surge of flowers by the armful, from petals to bouquets, with bursts of sweetness… It’s a brilliant fragrance, with a lively sparkling trail, a crazy rock nectar with an intoxicating scent that titillates the nose. A shot of energy that benefits the soul. A stylish lingering aura.
Although it is a brand new perfume, it stole my heart already. It is an oriental floral fragrance with a modern edge. Literally it is a fragrance of striking contrasts. It opens with fresh notes of Pink Pepper and Pink Guava Mousse that make for a captivating introduction to a floral heart of Black Iris. Warm and sensual Vanilla, Sandalwood and Amber create an addictive finish and are ideal bouquet for cool evenings.
This is such a vibrant and fruity fragrance, that makes me feel like I am on a holiday again! (I wish) Especially that burst of dark and red berries reminds me of the sweetest moments of the summer. Floral notes of jasmine and violet at the heart with base of amber and musk make it very memorable and signature fragrance.
Carolina Herrera Good Girl Velvet Fatale
When I only think about it’s provocative brightness of Jasmine and Tuberose combined with the dark and gourmand accord of the Tonka Bean and the Cacao my heart beats faster. This fragrance is like an invitation to seduce and inspire. It awakens my inner femme fatale, especially when I don’t feel this way in my cosy onesie on the sofa with a glass of proseco!
Narciso Rodriguez For Her
I selected it because it’s such a signature and classic perfume. It is simply refined and sensual. The soul of for her is full of grace and voluptuousness. The osmanthus floral accord plays to the rhythm of the heart of musk, rousing the desire to cuddle under a soft duvet. In perfect harmony with the skin. Literally perfect for cold autumnal evenings.
Thierry Mugler Angel Gravity Star
This fragrance is literally perfect for the autumn because it evokes delicious childhood memories of candyfloss and chocolate which make me feel so warm and secure. It represents the duality of woman’s nature, both innocent and sensual, tender and conquering. And this delicious elixir of mouth-watering fruits with a touch of honey combined with a hint of vanilla, chocolate and caramel counterbalance the forceful woody scent of patchouli. It is my new best friend.
Bottega Veneta Eau Sensuelle
As the name suggests, its sensuality will warm up any heart and soul. Striking fruity floral chypre blended with fresh peach notes give the fragrance this joyful twist. It is sexy yet light and girly at the same time. Perfect combination of Gardenia and Indian Jasmine and characteristic for Bottega Veneta fashion house leathery trial result in this beautiful fragrance that you will definitely fall in love this season.
Hugo Boss Ma Vie L’Eau
It’s freshness and inimitable combination of bright accords of the iconic Cactus Flower, White Magnolia and tender Pink Rose lets my inner light shine. Especially with a very limited amount of daylight in November. The smell captures a woman’s strength and the sense of independence. It’s delicately balanced heart is complemented by the sensuality of the base, where warm, elegant notes of Cedarwood are amplified by heady White Musks. I am sure that it will warm up not only your heart!
