What are autumn scents?
With the changing of seasons comes the changing of scents – out with the fresh and light, in with the warm and rich. When it comes to autumnal fragrances, it’s all about seasonal spices like vanilla, cinnamon and clove, comforting notes of musk and woody notes like cedar and sandalwood.
Whether you’re looking for a day-to-day perfume or an autumn scent for special occasions, these warming, indulgent fragrances are perfect for chilly weather, cosy nights and lots of layers.
Want to spice up your autumn perfume collection? Look for exactly that – spice. From cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper to patchouli, vanilla and ginger, spicy perfume has an irresistible warmth and cosiness as we creep into the colder months.
When it comes to masculine and spicy, Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Eau de Toilette is top of the list. Packed with fiery chilli and rich saffron, it’ll warm up those wintery nights.
Try Guess Seductive Homme Blue Eau de Toilette for a bold and sexy scent. The dominant spicy and woody notes of citrus caviar, cardamom and black pepper provide a seductive depth ideal for autumn and winter.
