Autumn means one thing – warm, woody and fresh scents are in! Fruity perfumes? SO last season. Not sure where to start? Here’s how to pick your new season scent.
1. PICK A NEW LAUNCH
Get ready for a treat this season. The hottest autumn scents have dropped. Want a sexy party scent? Opt for the black plum nectar and roasted tonka bean combo in Jimmy Choo Fever for her. For guys looking for a fresh, spicy scent, then Diesel Only The Brave Street (apple, basil and liquorice) is the answer to your prayers.
2. LOOK FOR WARMING SCENTS
In perfume, ‘oriental’ scents, such as Paco Rabanne Olympéa, are characterised by notes of vanilla and amber. Spritzing yourself in this warming salty vanilla classic will get you in just the right mood for cosy autumn. Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male is another top pick – an incredible blend of vanilla, sandalwood and orange blossom – ideal for any sophisticated femme fatale.
3. GRAB A PERFUME PEN
When out and about this season be sure to have a perfume pen in your back pocket (yes, you read that right!). Gently sweep the scented pen onto your wrists or neck and go – simple. Not only will it keep you fresh on your commute, you’ll be smelling on point throughout the day. Plus, it fits perfectly in your bag – the handiest (and coolest) beauty gadget we’ve ever seen.
