The trick to fall, frankly, is an update on your traditional scent—especially since it’s less expensive than investing in a new purse or shoes. And all the better if it’s housed in a stunning encasement that brings your vanity to a new tax bracket—visually, anyway.
Here are the most gorgeously packaged new scents for fall.
Dramatic And Aromatic
Launching in September, smoky floral Annick Goutal Nuit Et Confidences is inspired by champagne florals and sequined dresses. To up the fancy factor, the French perfumer chose a modern blue bottle adorned with a navy ruffled pouf that will dress up your purse hardware once the bottle’s all empty.
Hollywood Regency In Fragrance Form
Get your gilded splendor aesthetic on with Creed White Amber ($545), part of Creed’s Les Royales Exclusives collection. Known for its healing and life force energies, amber is a highly prized treasure used in many fragrances. This fruity floral is also a study in contrasts, thanks to the warmth of the amber and the airiness of the blooms.
Feminine and all grown up, Aerin Tuberose Le Soir ($305) looks just as beautiful as it smells. Outfitted in a creamy, rich rose bottle capped with a gold top, this luxe perfume will be a finishing touch for both your night out and and your bedroom makeup station. The scent blends sparkling mandarin, bergamot, and vanilla for a touch of heat that makes it perfect for fall.
Bright And Fresh
Gorgeously gossamer scent DKNY Nectar Love ($98) boasts a tinge of whimsy, both in the bottle and on the skin. This fruity floriental blends tangy mirabelle and orange flower, but the tartness is tempered by honeycomb neroli extract for a fresh, subtle effect.
Available next month, Amouage Figment For Women blends peppery accents with the freshness of gardenia, tuberose, and jasmine sambac. The gold-punctuated crisp turquoise and blue gradiated metalized finish is accented with Swarovski crystals to add an element of opulence to your boudoir.
Clean And Green
Goop Shiso Edition 02 ($165) will calm your senses and awaken your fragrance aura. Goop’s latest launch is earthy, thanks to the spicy-yet-fresh addition of the shiso leaf—also known as perilla. The sleek bottle yields simple, understated elegance, and comes in a candle version as well.
If you just can’t say goodbye to summer yet, Pinrose Sun Saint ($65) provides just the right amount of beachy coconut delight. However, the sandalwood elements give it enough gravitas for the months that end in ‘ber, as well.
Prada Candy Gloss is the latest in the popular Candy franchise, and gourmand lovers will appreciate the inspired combination of musk with cherry and peach for levity. The modern, sorbet-esque bottle will help it pop against an otherwise all-white aesthetic.
