The Best Autumn Fragrances for 2023

The Best Autumn Fragrances for 2023

As the summer gently fades away and the cosy autumnal vibes start to creep in, swapping out your current fragrance for something more seasonal is just as important as adjusting your wardrobe to cater for the time of year. By choosing a perfume that embodies autumnal influences your fragrance can act as a personal mood booster, presenting the perfect time to embrace bolder scents and experiment with layering.

Additionally, a little known truth when it comes to perfumery is that the changing temperatures and climates can affect how your favourite scent is perceived. For example, the heat of summer can create intense fragrant notes but also increase evaporation time, where the colder months may do the opposite. The best autumnal scents are rich and warm, with earthy, natural, and spicy tones such as wood, amber, and cinnamon. In this article, we've compiled a list of our favourites to help you find a new signature scent, keep reading to find out more.

Autumnal Perfumes for Women

As the green leaves of summer start to transform into landscapes of golden and crimson hues, shorter days and crisp cool nights symbolise new beginnings and the start of a season that is characterised by a unique collection of scents. As we experience the season, autumn smells can be found throughout our daily lives from the roar of a warm crackling fire to the earthy and mossy scents of natural forests, even our attitude to food changes with bakeries emitting sumptuous scents of baked apple, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Perfumers seek to marry these scents together, bottling them for us to enjoy whenever we need them. With such beautiful options available to experiment with, the process of finding new autumn favourites has never been easier. Let's take a look at some of our personal favourites to help inspire you to find your own.

Roberto Cavalli Eau De Parfum £32.50 (RRP £64.00 Saving £31.50)

The Roberto Cavalli Eau De Parfum is a voluptuous '_x0098_floriental' scent that exudes confidence through its rich and exotic accord. With base notes of musky tonka bean and woody Laos benzoin, mid notes of orange blossom and top notes of amber, the fragrance is perfectly balanced by a twist of pink pepper. This is a perfect perfume for the transitional period between summer and autumn.

Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau De Parfum £64.99 (RRP £78.00 saving £13.01)

The dual accord of the Estee Lauder Modern Muse perfume marries together the best of autumnal floral and musky scents. Feminine and dynamic, the fragrance has exotic notes of mandarin and honeysuckle which is perfectly complemented by amber wood and Madagascan vanilla. This powerful autumnal scent is able to simultaneously evoke feelings of both homely warmth and wanderlust.

Paco Rabanne Lady Million Lucky Eau De Parfum £79.99 (Was £83.50 Save £3.51)

A popular year-round choice, the Paco Rabanne Lady Million Lucky realises its full potential in the autumn season. This fragrance is ideal for those who prefer a woody scent as it boasts a unique and euphoric blend of velvet sandalwood and cashmere wood, which is balanced by Madagascan vanilla, fruity raspberry and zesty mandarin. The bold and mesmerising scent is long-lasting and perfectly embodies the autumnal spirit. If this scent could be an autumn day activity, it would be that of the simple pleasures of enjoying a freshly baked pastry after an invigorating woodland walk.

Chloe Nomade Eau De Parfum £54.99 (RRP £81.00 Saving £26.01)

The chypre Chloe Nomade perfume is an excellent choice for those who prefer fresh floral scents. Offset by mossy base tones, the Nomade is earthy and revitalising. In comparison to other seasonal scents, this fragrance is quite light but has a unique and complex blend guided by the classical scent of fresh cherry plums and freesia. This is the perfect option for those who don't want to completely let go of the summer just yet.

Best Men's Autumn Fragrances

Autumn is an excellent time for men's colognes and fragrances, as the natural woody and earthy tones of the season can be blended together to create powerful masculine scents that are perfectly suited to the time of year. There are lots of options to choose from, whether you prefer musky scents or lean towards something more fresh. However, there are two stand-out options that we believe are worth trying out this season.

Carolina Herrera Chic For Men Eau De Toilette £32.90 (RRP £41.00 Saving £8.10)

Carolina Herrera Chic for men is a warm spicy accord with slight notes of aquatic freshness. The woody and musky base notes give the fragrance a sophisticated and masculine foundation, but the heart notes are where the autumnal fragrance comes to life, with spicy pepper and cinnamon. This scent was designed for men who like to indulge in luxury, and can be worn day or night through the season.

Hugo Boss Bottled Infinite Eau De Parfum £30.99 (RRP £52.00 Saving £21.01)
