Best New Perfumes for Autumn

I have recently spent many enjoyable hours roaming the beautiful perfume departments of both Harrods and Harvey Nichols. This was of course all in the name of ‘research’ so I can now present to you what I feel are the best new perfumes for autumn 2019.

Much like sipping Prosecco or Gin from a plastic cup, wearing a summer perfume in the autumn or winter does not feel quite right. As you wave goodbye to summer’s fresh floral and citrus fragrances, it’s time to turn your attention to more rich and warming notes.

Woody scents such as sandalwood, patchouli, tobacco are perfect for autumn and winter. However don’t overlook sweet, spice, and deeper florals that are also winter-time favourites.

1957 by Chanel

1957 Eau de Parfum by Chanel
1957 Eau de Parfum by Chanel

1957 Eau de Parfum has many layers and seems to alter its composition as the hours pass. White powdery floral scent with a musky/woody base. I would recommend this scent as a daytime early autumn scent. Perhaps an ambling city park walk admiring the trees that are finally losing grip on their leaves.

white musk, bergamot

iris, honey and neroli

white musk

The Moon by Fredric Malle

Wonderlust Subline Eau de Parfum is an oriental floral experience, yet with the additional facets of spice and wood. A surprisingly complicated fragrance. Perfectly suited for both autumn and winter alike. Michael Kors has essentially bottled the scent of autumn.

Conclusion

I have presented what I feel are the 10 best perfumes for autumn.

Autumn and winter fragrances tend to work their magic better as Eau de Parfum as they need the extra strength. You will find yourself gravitating towards woody/musky scents with a hint of floral and sweetness s they make the best perfumes for autumn. Tobacco and leather seem very popular this year and give off a rich and warm feeling.

Sometimes it’s tricky to see the wood from the trees, so if you are struggling to decide then I personally recommend Naughty Fruity by Mugler as the combination of plum and tobacco works so incredibly well.

Before you go, I have put together a reviewed collection of elegant perfumes ranging from timeless classics to modern day sophistication that I think you may enjoy.
