    Kenzo – madly! I love this in early autumn.

  5. I love Prada L’eau Ambree and Tom Ford Black Orchid! Diptypque 34 EDT is glorious but I only have a sample.

  6. Ana

    Thierry Mugler Angel EDT!

  7. Ro

    Possibly Viktor and Rolf’s Flowerbomb or Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noir :D

  8. I love LUSH breath of god which is a unisex earthy fragrance. Quite frequently I like slightly masculine sents so anything automnal is great by me all year.

  9. I’m actually on the hunt right now!

    Like This by Etat Libre d’Orange & Tilda Swinton

    Bois des Iles by Chanel
    Coco by Chanel
    Portrait of a Lady by Frederic Malle
    Shalimar by Guerlain

    I love woody Orientals – Samsara and Vol de Nuit by Guerlain evoke the season for me, as does Chanel’s Bois des Iles.

  12. Sassa

    I have two that I love for the cooler weather – Bottega Veneta and Chanel Bois Des Isles. Both are cozy and comfortable. I will switch out with By Kilian Sweet Redemption, which I love, but it’s really too strong for the summer months, so Fall is a perfect opportunity for it.

    • Bottega Veneta is a new purchase and love for me! I wore Miss Dior (Cherie) until my younger sister decided that she likes that one too, so I wanted to find a new one. It’s so woody and warm.

  13. Cristina Arbona

    I think coco noir from chanel

  14. Michele

    Tom Ford: Sahara Noir, Oud Wood, Black Orchid and YSL: Opium. (wishlist -Creed: Spice and Wood)

  15. Steffi

    Onde mystére by Armani

  16. grlnxdor

    Estee Lauder Pleasures Delight. It smells nothing like the original Pleasures or any of the other flankers. I believe it is a gourmand(?) It almost has that “Angel” vibe going, but I like it better than Angel. One spray is enough and the dry down is wonderful. I never see it advertised so I’m not sure if people know about it. Definitely worth sampling.

  17. Burberry The Beat. Such a yummy and comfy fragrance… Temptalia brought it to my attention so thanks for that, Christine :-)

  18. Lisa

    I love Oud Wood too! Right now I am craving Chanel Coco Noir, Xerjoff Lira, Atelier Vanille Insensee, Lolita Lempicka Lolita Lempicka, and Diptyque Tam Dao.

  19. Amy

    My favorite is a past limited edition from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab… To Autumn. It literally starts out smelling like you are shuffling through fallen leaves on a just-barely-warm Fall afternoon, carrying a basket of fresh apples, and as it dries it is like you’re getting closer and closer to home where cider is being made. It smells amazingly like Autumn while telling a story.

    I also like pretty much all of BPAL’s LE scents with pumpkin. I wear their Autumn scents in Autumn!

  20. When fall comes I always love Guerlain’s Samsara and Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle. Spicy, warm goodness!

  21. beck

    Oud Wood is good I have a mini bottle,need to get a regular
    bottle someday when dropping that kind of cash seems
    legit…haha.
    For fall I’ve worn Illamasqua Freak a couple of times, the colder
    temperatures really amp this into something great.

    Gucci Rush, Jo Malone Lime&Cedar, Black Phoenix
    Alchemy Lab Halloween scents. These are working
    better on my skin now that they have aged.

  22. Guerlain Bois d’Arménie or Tonka Impérial!

  23. #1 jasmin imperatrice eugenie creed
    #2 TF noir de noire
    #3 m. micallef winter

  24. Dominique

    Many ! Right now ? Baiser Volé.

  25. keG

    I love every fragrance Tom Ford does-they are just so expensive!! Budget-minded me- likes Pacifica Tibetan Mountain Temple, and Madagascar Spice for autumn

  26. Susan Dowman Nevling

    I usually see wear DONNA KARAN CASHMERE MIST when it’s warm weather and PRADA AMBER WHEN it’s cooler. I also occasionally wear the original Clean.. it’s very light and almost a non perfume

  27. Sunny

    Tokoyo Milk Tainted Love or Tokoyo Milk Dead Sexy.

  28. Jo Malone’s Blackberry and Bay is my perfect autumn scent

  29. Cashmere Mist Donna Karan!I love it!reminds me so mush of powder!

  30. Sarah

    Guerlain la petite robe noir

  31. 18thCenturyFox

    TokyoMilk Dark Tainted Love

  32. Tom Ford Vanilla Tobacco or People of the Labyrinths Luctor et Emergo. I go back and forth between the two. And once in awhile I’ll use Hanae Mori.

  33. I don’t wear perfume, but I definitely switch up my body washes & what not during this time of year. I go for heavier scents.

  34. Rachel

    This isn’t really a fall/winter scent but every year my mom gets me a perfume for Christmas and this year I asked for Marc Jacobs Honey. I love everything he does and I have used Daisy so much I can’t even smell it anymore!

  35. Karen

    Chanel Coco, Coco Mademoiselle, Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb, Tom Ford almost anything, Hanae Mori

  36. Lydia

    Musc Koublai Khan by Serge Lutens.

  37. Priscilla

    Clive Christian 1872, Christian Dior Pure Poison, Bond No. 9 New York Amber, and Tom Ford Jasmin Rouge.

    I like perfume that lasts a long time.

  42. I’m not really one to love the deeper fall scents but I love those clean, bubbly, floral scents. My favorite right now is Marc Jacobs’ Honey.

  43. Carla

    Eav des Bavx by L’Occitane
    I know :) It’s a male scent but I took the chance and it worth it!!

  44. jodmeister

    Dior Hypnotic Poison on it’s own or Hypnotic Poison mixed with Jo Malone Grapefruit.

  45. MzLovinlife Wallace

    Escape is my all time favorite Fall fragrance

  46. Nikki

    I’ve been saving my Prada Candy for Fall and Winter. To me, it seems like a cozy scent for cooler months.

  47. Aelita

    juliette has a gun-lady vengeance

  48. Dior Addict or Versace Crystal Noir! Both warm and sweet. :)

  49. Courtney K

    Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab’s Pumpkin V 2009 Edition. I smell like a pumpkin spice latte! I wear a lot of pumpkin scents, and yet…..I don’t like pumpkin pie. Go figure.

  50. jaggedlittlepill

    Gucci Rush, Classic. Poppers. Peach/Lactonic.

    Or Tom Ford’s Violet Blonde -which is my perfume at the moment.
