Warm and woody fragrances, from crackling fireplace smoke to verdant forests, autumnal fragrances come in all shapes and sizes. If you're a fan of warm, complex and natural perfumes then consider one of these elegant olfactory experiences!
1/ Cherry Smoke by Tom Ford
Tom Ford Cherry Smoke plays with fire. The fragrance opens with the exquisite scent of Dark Cherry flavour, enhanced by exotic saffron notes. The fragrant white flowers of osmanthus exude facets of apricot, olive and leather, while a precious smoked wood accord tantalises with heat and vibrancy. This is a very sexy perfume, think late nights in smokey bars, drinks with handsome strangers and feeling unapologetically feminine.
2/ Ouranon Eau de Parfum by Aesop
Ouranon Eau de Parfum by Aesop is warm, comforting and complex. Grounding notes of resinous woods, sweet tonka bean and incandescent spices evoke a feeling of comfort and homeliness. Complimented with bright opening notes of citrus and an aromatic, herbaceous heart. The perfect unisex perfume, this scent is rich, full bodied and robust like a well aged Cabernet Sauvignon.
3/ Myrrhe 55 by Le Labo
Honouring the heat and the history of Shanghai, Myrrhe 55 is centered around the sticky, spicy aroma of the sacred resin used widely in traditional Chinese medicine. The liquorice sweetness of the central myrrh is intensified by supporting jasmine and patchouli, with a subdued hint of oud and musk in the dry-down. Warming and animalic, it’s a strangely comforting blend for crisp autumn days. If you’re a fan of the brand’s cult Thé Noir, you’ll love this.
4/ Forest Lungs by The Nue Co
If your dream autumn scent is less earthy musk and more fresh trees then Forest Lungs by The Nue Co is the perfect perfume for you. The woody, smoky blend of vetiver, cedar and pine is designed to conjure the image of a lush forest and mimic the stress-relieving benefits of ‘forest bathing’, the Japanese meditative ritual used to promote relaxation.
5/ Bibliothèque Eau de Parfum by Byredo
Often describes as smelling like an ancient library, Bibliothèque Eau de Parfum by Byredo is a truly unique fragrance. Opening with notes of sweet plum and warm cinnamon, at first smell this may seem more like a spring fragrance until you meet the rich leathery heart notes that are complimented and rounded by a base of birch, patchouli and a delicate touch of vanilla. This perfume is an enchanting addition to your fragrance library.
6/ FATHER FIGURE by Phlur
Inspired by hidden gardens, FATHER FIGURE by Phlur is commanding yet tender at the same time. A green, refreshing scent of waterlily, fig and creamy sandalwood which gives a fruity twist to the traditional woody scents that you expect in autumn. A true olfactory experience, this perfume smells like sitting outside on a crispy October morning, clean, bright and intoxicatingly earth.
