When autumn comes around most of us take the opportunity to change up our wardrobes and our make-up pallet, but one area that often gets overlooked is our fragrance.
Warm weather calls for fresh, light scents and us girls tend to favour citrus or floral perfumes over summer. When the seasons change however, we become enticed by the dark side. This year autumn fragrances are full of depth, taking inspiration from the earthly elements. Take a look at the following new releases for inspiration:
Mojave Ghost by Byredo Parfums (£88 for 50ml)
This scent was inspired by the ghost flower, a flower that blooms in spite of extreme conditions in America’s Mojave Desert. Top notes of Jamaican nesberry and amberette give way to middle notes of sandalwood and magnolia before revealing a base of amber and cedar wood.
Reveal by Calvin Klein (£52 for 50ml)
A woody scent contrasted against a salt note, Reveal aims to replicate the scent of the skin. Pink, white and black pepper make up the top notes with cashmeran woods and musk undertones.
Narciso by Narciso Rodriguez (£58 for 50ml)
Created with the aim of tapping into a woman’s sensuality, Narciso transformed the traditionally masculine vetiver into something truly feminine. The scent comprises of delicate rose and gardenia top notes, a heart of musk and a strong cedar base.
Wood Sage & Sea Salt by Jo Malone London (£40 for 30ml)
An English brand through and through, Jo Malone looked to the British coastline when designing its Wood Sage & Sea Salt fragrance. Bringing images of a rugged coastline and salty sea-air, this scent combines sage, sea salt and sage with punchier notes of grapefruit and red algae.
