YSL Parisienne! I have no idea if it makes a better summer or winter fragrance, but I’ve been crazy about Parisienne for almost a year. It’s not really long lasting on the skin, but it lasts forever in my hair! Love it so much.

Don’t have one…just pick one of the only 4 perfumes I have when I rush out of the door in the morning for work!

I don’t know how appropriate they are for fall, but right now I’m loving Michael Kors Very Hollywood and Vera Wang Glam Princess. DKNY Red Delicious is a favorite of mine that’s pretty appropriate for fall.

For the fall, I have two go-to fragrances. Beyonce’s Heat and Avon’s Imari. They are both warm and spicy. I constantly receive compliments on both.

How do you like its staying power? I was having a hard time choosing between Play and Play Intense, and I ended up choosing Intense, simply because it was the one I could still smell on my wrist after walking around the mall for an hour. Intense doesn’t last very long either, but I do love the fragrance anyway.

Serpentine by Roberto Cavalli which I discovered during my time in Italy and I can now only buy online:( good thing I bought so many backups! I’m also loving Miss Cherie by Dior

jean paul gaultier classique or “my signature scent” allure by chanel. but the gaultier one makes me fell like I’m still in bed under the duvet on cold days 🙂

Chanel Coco Madmoiselle! for summer it’s too “heavy” (well maybe for the evenings out) but it’s perfect for fall.
Also, I’m planning to finally buy myself D&G The One this year (I plan it every year and end up picking some other scent)!also great for fall 🙂

Viv Westwood’s Boudoir or Flora by Gucci. But when I can buy it I’ll wear Tom Ford White Patchouli and eventually Halston Amber or Bandit by Robert Piguet.

I never really categorize my fragrances by season. I wear what smells good on me. I just got Coach’s POPPY fragrance (at my local Sephora w/ my F&F discount, since it’s not sold online), so I’ll be wearing that alot, probably.

Armania Mania. Love it for fall and winter. I could probably use it in the summer as well, because it’s not that heavy and it has some fruitiness to it, but I prefer really fresh scents when it’s warm outside.

I also love Amber Rose from Victoria’s Secret. Such a warm and cozy scent.

Chanel No. 5 is my favorite perfume, but I also like Bath & Body Works Black Raspberry Vanilla Eua de Toilette. Chanel can get expensive when you love it as much as I do! Plus I cannot get enough berry scented things, yum!

Armani City Glam….. it was a gift from my boyfriend, and I LOVE the way it smells… kind of girly, but spicy at the same time. 🙂

Jean Paul Gaultier Classique is a staple, and for work Britney spears midnight fantasy, its like blackcurrants and vanilla

I like to wear different kinds of perfumes, ones that not alot of my friends have ever heard of, so in Autumn (Fall)/Winter I like to wear “Palisander by Comme des Garçons” it’s quiet strong and woody but it wears down and is just GORGEOUS afterwards, I always get comments on it!! 🙂

Have you smelled it before, Christine?! 🙂

I don’t change my fragrance by season. I have perfume sensitivities, and it has taken SOOOOO long to find a smell that I like, that doesn’t give me a headache….

My favorite is Miss Dior Cherie. Though I also don’t mind bvlgari Blu III.

I absolutely love fragrance but can’t wear it because it gives me migraines. So sad. I love viktor & rolf flowerbomb, some of the creed fragrances and the chanel boutique fragrances. I can wear chanel no 5 though so I wear that everyday

I have two fragrances from Bath & Bodyworks that signal Fall/Winter for me…Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin and Winter Candy Apple.

Oohh, Guerlain Mitsouko (fruity chypre), Amouge Lyric (rose), Annick Goutal Ce Soir ou Jamais (rose again). I’m looking to pick up an Ormonde Jayne soon, so maybe something by her next.

Love this question!

A woman after my own heart! Mitsouko all the way, and Chanel Coco. I just got a sample of Amouge Lyric and I love it for when it’s gray and rainy. A friend of mine is going to England this week and I’ve asked her to pick up some Ormonde Jayne samles while she’s there, so I’ll probably be hitting that pretty hard this season, too.

Lol, it’s so weird, but I always get a warm feeling when someone lists one of my favourites. But if too many people list it, I get a bit upset! I love Mitsouko for velvet coats and silk scarves, to me, it’s such a pensive, solitary scent. Do you know what I mean? When I wear Mitsouko, I take the longer route through the trees and talk a little less and think a little more. Lyric is such a glamorous, womanly scent to me. Someone else mentioned Amouage Memoir, which is another one I’m looking to pick up. That one is REALLY a black velvet scent, almost masculine.

Have you considered ordering the Ormonde Jayne sample kit online? Everyone says they’re great value for money. I would love to get a full bottle right now, but I want a trip to London and I really, REALLY want a perfume consultation.

I’m still wearing my summer fragrance for this year- Lolita Lempicka- half the time (it’s still in the high 80’s some days)… and when I’m not wearing that I’m wearing Thierry Mugler Angel. I can really smell the honey, chocolate, and vanilla when I wear it, and since I’m doing a lot of baking at this time of year it puts me in the right mood. 🙂

I always buy lots of fall fragrances because I adore pumpkin scents, so I’m rotating between a few new fall scents from BPAL and Blooddrop.

For all year ’round- (I’m so picky when it comes to fragrances, that so far I only found a couple I really like :/…)- Armani’s No Code, and Thierry Mugler’s Angel.

Right now I’m wearing Kilian’s Love and Tears. But saving up for the Rose Oud, possibly the sexiest scent I have smelled in a long time!

D&G the one. And every now and again I mix it up and use Annick Goutal petite chérie. I just love that scent. But I don’t wear it for fall only, I use all year round 🙂

I’m a BPAL collector, and I tend to shell out more for smellies than I do for makeup. While I don’t find that my scent selection from day-to-day is particularly seasonal, I reach for my more spicy scents. I also got in my Halloween order not too long ago, so I’ve worn a bit of Lambs Wool, which is a spicy cider scent, and Blue Pumpkin Floss, which smells like spicy sugary pumpkin. The teller at my bank told me, “You smell like fall!” Which means it’s in season, I suppose! 😀

I like Calvin Klein Obsession for women. It is so sexy! But I wear it in the summer, too. I also like Deep Night by Ghost and Twilight Woods from B&BW.

Urban Decay’s Revolver is what I’m wearing this fall!
I would definitely recommend picking it up soon as it is being discontinued. =[
If you love rich, warm, unique scents. It’s a great mix of amber, musk, and pineapple leaves. <3

I find that spicey or mossy chypre perfumes are best for fall (or in my case any season). I tend to wear Poison a lot more in the fall as it has a ‘spiced fruit’ appeal, as well as Mitsouko which is my favourite mossy chypre. Opium and Tabu are also excellent for this season as they are warm and spicey.

hmmmm…i switch it up daily and consider myself a budding perfumista, so I’m only just beginning to really grow my collection. When i just can’t figure out what i want to smell like that day. Bvlgari Omnia or DonnaKaran’s Black Cashmere fit the bill nicely. i also like Cuir de Lancome on those days where I want to feel sophisticated. When I’m in a more fruity mood I’ll reach for my Badgley Mishka (1st 1) or Maubaussin…oh, and My Insolence can clear a room out pretty good if i’m in the mood, lol. I recently added Fath de Fath but she’s so pretty and polite I only trot her out for church and meetings. My Fendi Theorema is down to 1/2 a bottle and it’s been discontinued and hard to find so I don’t spray that as lavishly as before but it was in high rotation last year….there are several other lovelies that get more air time in the Fall and Winter but I’ve rambled on quite enough, lol.

Chanel Beige and Bvlgari Omnia Amethyste. They can both we worn for day or evening. Soft, sophisticated, and elegant. Not too strong or sweet, just perfect!
