Fragrances to get you in the mood for Autumn
It’s official, summer’s gone. Done. Finished. Finito.
Don’t let the lingering high temperatures fool you, before you know it you’ll find yourself immersed in moody Autumn temperatures that call for a scent that’s a little warmer, more enveloping than the clean summer scents you’ve been sporting.
You’ll want a scent that compliments the crispness of autumn and delivers a warming aura – not quite the heat of summer, but far from the freshness of winter.
Discover which of these five autumn scents you’d be most likely to try…
Prepare to be blown away by a burst of lemon, geranium and blackcurrant as soon as you spritz this gloriously girly scent. The pink flacon mimics the feminine scent it contains, thanks to middle and base notes of fresh jasmine, plush mimosa, opulent rose, honey-tea and white musk. It’s just what a shivery autumn day calls for.
Burberry Brit Rhythm, from $99, 02 9695 5678
If you find that the addition of your leather jacket to your wardrobe as the cold weather creeps in is making you feel a little ‘rock n’ roll’ then this is the scent to match your state of mind. The powdery floral fragrance features a rush of British lavender, orange blossom and vetiver – as well as a rock chic bottle to house the smoked pink juice.
Just as magnificent as its predecessor, UNTOLD, UNTOLD Eau Légère is a supremely feminine fragrance that features a cocktail of sparkling citrus and floral notes that work together to create a brilliantly unique juice. Notes of green apple, pink pepper, grapefruit, blackcurrant bud, purple freesia, pink peony, patchouli and musk will seriously delight.
So you want something warming, fresh and striking? Gee, you don’t ask for much, do you? Luckily, this incredible scent ticks all the boxes. Notes of tuberose, musk, hyacinth, orange flower and mandarin mold make this one of the most remarkable scents you’ll ever have the pleasure of sniffing.
This beautiful scent is just one of four fragrances from a limited edition range called London Rain. The fragrances were created by Master Perfumer Christine Nigel and capture the different moods of a downpour, so there’s bound to be at least one that captivates you. Choose from Wisteria & Violet, White Jasmine & Mint, Black Cedarwood & Juniper or Rain & Angelica, which features notes of herbaceous angelica and juicy lime on a base of vetiver. Autumn, come at me.
Beyonce Rise, from $49, 1800 812 663
This glamorous-looking juice is an accurate reflection of its dazzling creator – and smells just as fabulous. The scent contains notes of Beyonce’s favourite flower, orchid as well as bergamot, golden apricot, iced basil sorbet, freesia, jasmine and cashmere musk. Bold and beautiful.
