JO MALONE LONDON ENGLISH PEAR & FREESIA
Jo Malone London’s best-selling fragrance really works as an autumn scent. Fresh, fruity floral, simple yet elegant. It highlights just a handful of notes but they are executed beautifully. Juicy pear opens this scent which is given a floral twist with freesia before drying down to warm amber, patchouli and woods. This is one for the fruity-fragrance wearers who want a sophisticated and autumnal twist.
NARCISO RODRIGUEZ FOR HER
It’s a floral, woody and musky fragrance that you just cannot stop smelling. It has serious lasting power, and it’s the type of fragrance that wafts throughout the day with the scent lingering on your scarf during cold weather. If you are a fan of musk scents, then this is highly recommended. Despite being launched in 2007, it still smells modern and unlike anything else you’ve ever worn.
GUERLAIN ANGÉLIQUE NOIRE
Looking for something bewitching and mysterious for evening? Look no further. Never will a fragrance make you feel more like a femme fatale than the Guerlain Angelique Noire. Perfumer Thierry Wasser describes this scent as half angelic, half demonic, and says that if this perfume were a play, it would be Black Swan. The bitter yet fresh angelica note opens first, before opulent vanilla unfurls into the most hypnotising warmth on the skin that last for hours on end.
TOM FORD VANILLE FATALE
The vanilla scent is anything but sickly sweet, rather more rich, leathery and expensive-smelling. It has a slight smokiness to it which takes the edge off the sweetness preventing it from feeling cloying. The fragrance makes you think of espresso martinis and leather seating in a smokey bar.
