Enticing Autumn/Winter Fragrances You'll Want to Wear All Season Long

Monday, November 30, 2020

It's always exciting to switch up my scent with the turn of the new season. As soon as fall arrives, I look forward to shelving my light and bright fragrances of summer and reach for deeper, more complex scents. This year's autumn/winter launches certainly didn't disappoint, as some of my favorite luxe brands delivered some incredibly intoxicating perfumes I will reach for the remainder of the year. From punched up florals to beautifully blended spice notes and beyond, here are the top fragrance launches you'll want to wear well into 2021.

Sophisticated Classics 
A scent for women, created by women, Idôle is a sophisticated and polished scent that earns a revisit time and time again. A timeless blend created by three expert female perfumers, Idôle is a symphony of notes including bright citrus elegant florals and a pop of fresh spice. This refined yet modern scent is one I've been reaching for quite often and its inviting aroma is soon to become a fast favorite on your fragrance shelf as well. 

A beautiful story told through an arrangement of elegant notes, Ilsa's Infinite No 1 is truly a love letter to women. The inspiration behind this fragrance and this wonderful brand emphasizes the courage, strength and bold determination of all women. Founder Ilsa Manning was motivated to start this brand after the birth of her daughter and this special blend serves as a lovely reminder to all those women working towards achieving their dreams. With a fresh floral opening which mellows into an alluring warm amber scent, Infinite No 1 is the perfect final touch that'll boost your confidence before stepping out your front door. Best of all, Ilsa's brand focuses on quality over quantity, concentrating on creating small batches to assure every element of this scent is expertly formulated. 

Sweet & Sexy 
Leave it to Tom Ford to take a usually sweet peach note and elevate it to a more developed and sexy scent. Bitter Peach blends classically warm patchouli and davano oil with fresh Sicilian blood orange and pêche de vigne which creates a graduated, full-bodied fragrance that presents sweet and melts into more deep, delicate spice. 

Floral Fusion 
As a long time fan of Armani fragrances (Si Passione, Acqua di Gioia are SO yummy), I was so excited to try their latest launch, My Way. This beautiful poppy and classic floral scent is one that features lovely sparkling notes like bergamont, Egyptian orange blossom, Indian tuberose and builds with Madagascar vanilla and soft white musk. Like an international journey bottled to perfection, this exquisite fragrance is not to be missed. 

Date Night Pick 
Fancy fragrances with unique ingredients are usually reserved for date nights. These special scents consist of a polished collection of aromatic notes that blend beautifully when combined. Gucci Mémoire d'une Odeur, the fashion house's newest perfume offering wonderfully fits the bill. This intricate yet light fragrance is a fusion of warm and musky notes (sandalwood, cedarwood) with rich botanical scents (Indian coral jasmine, Roman chamomile), which makes for an airy and elegant fragrance that wears beautifully and yields many compliments. 

Ultra Luxe 
For a truly luxurious scent experience, look no further than Bond No. 9. This iconic brand's meticulously blended fragrances are always a feast for  your senses and My New York is no exception. This aromatic scent expertly blends an array of spicy and elegant floral notes like ginger, pink pepper, rose and sandalwood which becomes a unisex creation that is as lively and striking as the city it's named after.

Holiday Must-Have

There are a handful of familiar scents which mark the holidays, some of which include pine, cedar, balsam and aromatic spices. Warm and inviting fragrances are usually abundant during the wintery holiday season but Jo Malone offers a modern and merry take on holiday fragrance with their Green Almond & Red Currant blend. The hero notes in this fragrance offer an interesting interpretation of the freshness and warmth seen during this festive season. Green almond presents a sharp earthiness, whereas the subtly sweet red currant and cedar extends a familiar coziness in this unique perfume. A few spritz of this delectable scent will make you feel merry and bright with every use.
