When autumn comes around, there’s no better time to switch up your scent. Expect warm wafts of vanilla, musk and sandalwood to dominate the perfume scene. Let us present you with our guide to the hottest autumn scents. PS, they’ve only just launched…
THE PERFUME EDIT PEPPERED EARTH FOR HER & FOR HIM
Go woodier and earthier this autumn in Peppered Earth. The vegan, unisex scent, which has just launched as one of The Perfume Shop’s three exclusive scents, has pink pepper, musk and leather to keep you smelling sensual and energised. You’ve also got rose and jasmine notes, which add the little sweetness you’ll be craving. Sound good? It gets even better. You can get it engraved with your initials (or some else’s, to make the perfect gift).
GUCCI MEMOIRE D’UNE ODEUR FOR HER & FOR HIM
It’s hot off the shelves, so say hello to Gucci Mémoire. With top gourmand notes of chamomile and bitter almond, a heart of musks and a base of creamy vanilla and sandalwood, this will keep you smelling fresh and exotic through autumn. Seeking a fragrance to take you from morning latte to evening dinner dates? Grab this one now.
LANCOME IDOLE FOR HER
The new Lancôme Idôle is anything but ordinary. The bottle? One of the slimmest in the world to date (just 15mm). The smell? A delicate blend of roses with patchouli and vanilla – insanely feminine. The campaign? A whole lot of girl power (Zendaya is the face – enough said). This isn’t for the faint-hearted. Wear it this autumn to stand out like never before.
ELIE SAAB LE PARFUM ROYAL FOR HER
Ever wondered what the Royal Family smell like? Probably something like this. Elie Saab Le Parfum Royal has launched its rendition of a scent fit for a royal. And it’s just as you’d expect – bold, powerful and intense. Cue radiant smells of roses, sandalwood, amber and vanilla. Make it your power scent this autumn.
