Autumn is the perfect time to start indulging in new scents for either yourself or your loved ones, so to help you out during this festive period we've chosen a few of our latest new releases and old favourites that are sure to suit just about anyone.

First up is the Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium (£37.99) fragrance - perfect for anyone with a love for the original Opium scent, but also great for someone looking to branch into a deep, luxury perfume. Contains notes of coffee, pink pepper and and orange blossom with base notes of cedar and patchouli.

Next for the boys is Bvlgari Man In Black (£45.99) - a neo-oriental fragrance that boasts both masculine scents such as rum and cardamom as well as lighter floral notes, creating the perfect contrast and a unique fragrance.

Another FD favourite is Reveal by Calvin Klein (£44.99). This particular 50ml scent comes complete with a stylish pouch and sample size of body lotion that helps the perfume to last and last. The scent is light yet warming and is filled with notes such as salt and pink pepper.

Nuit D'Issey by Issey Miyake (£34.99) is a fantastic gift for any man, and is another product that comes complete with a free gift (a practical wash bag) when purchasing the 75ml bottle. This leathery, woody fragrance just lasts and lasts on the skin.

Another fragrance for the ladies is Narciso by Narciso Rodriguez (£32.99) which is a gorgeous, sophisticated powdery scent that would make the perfect gift for just about any woman. Plus, the bottle looks absolutely stunning!

A classic fragrance for men (and one that is celebrating 10 years) is Boss Bottled by Hugo Boss (£26.99). It's loved by men of all ages due to it's timeless citrus scent and is a perfect gift if you're struggling for ideas this Christmas.

Finally for the girls is Stella by Stella McCartney (£33.99) that's not only beautiful in appearance, but also in the way that it smells. The main focus of this fragrance is rose - a very current and popular scent for young adults. On first application the fragrance is light, and slowly transforms into a warm amber.

Lastly is another classic for men - Dolce & Gabbana The One (£38.99). This strong, masculine fragrance is one that is loved by both men and women, and never seems to go out of style. It's a woody, oriental scent that has notes of tobacco, ginger and basil that makes it very unique to other amber-based scents. All in all, a perfect purchase for any man!
