Tom Ford Tuscan Leather. Later in the season I move to Armani Privé Bois d’Encens. For some reason that seems like fall-becoming-winter, whereas Tuscan Leather seems more like the earlier part of Fall. I probably think about this too much.

One of my favorite fall scents is Botrytis by Ginestet.It has warm honey, dried fruit, tobacco, amber and gingerbread notes. Smells like honey,dessert wine,and tobacco. Sweet,sensual and sophisticated.

I don’t really think of my perfumes as seasonal, but now that I think about it, I have been gravitating more towards my lighter floral, fruity scents this summer: Guerlain Petite Robe Noire and Repetto. Illamasqua Freak and Chanel Coco Noir just seemed too heavy when it’s so hot out. I have to wear Burberry Brit year round because that’s my husband’s favorite, and I wear Chanel Chance year round because that’s MY favorite. 🙂 But as it gets cooler, I will probably wear Freak and Noir more often. I just got the Marchesa Hair Mist, which doesn’t seem seasonal.
P.S. Christine, I finally got Arabian Oud Kalemat and it is not for me. 🙁 It is too heavy and – I don’t know, rich? – for me. I’m so bummed! I had such high hopes for it. It did, however, smell better on my cat. Ha! When I pick up my cats, they always smell like my perfume afterwards!

I love Estée Lauder Sensuous (the original). It’s warm and supposed to be a “woody amber” which I normally would find masculine and would not like, but it’s just warm, a little sexy and just gorgeous.

Several Jo Malone fragrances – Nutmeg & Ginger; Vanilla & Anise; Blackberry & Bay
Also Gap Om…it is no longer manufactured but I found it last year on Amazon!

Ginestet Botrytis and Parfums DelRae Bois de Paradise are my two favorites. I also like Tom Ford’s Oud Wood, EL Sensuous. Cielo Napa Valley, which has some fig in it among other notes. I do like fig scents. For very early autumn the discontinued Fresh Fig Apricot and Gap Om, both of which I have hoarded a bit.

After doing a lot of sampling of new rose based fragrances this past August, I’ve gone mad for two new scents and will probably wear them a lot in the coming cooler months. One is La Fille de Berlin by Serge Lutens, a bright, peppery Rose soliflore that is pomegranate red in the flaçon! This one will probably be a standby rose for me all year long, no matter what the weather. The other is a dark, moody affair by Eau d’Italie called Paestrum Rose that starts out pretty much pure incense (wonderful for the holidays!) then dries down into a warm but shadowy rose/incense/precious woods harmony. Great longevity and sillage on both of these, too.

Designer: Hamsa by Celine Leora (day) & Opium by YSL (night-and my favorite perfume of all time)

Inexpensive: Fame Black Fluid by Coty/Lady Gaga and whatever vanilla-spice scented body spray catches my fancy for the season.

I just adore Cinnebar by Estee Lauder. I buy it every fall. Red is wonderful too! I’ve been looking for a new scent that’s cinnamon-lime, warm, strong, sensual…. I like Angel too. I love perfume, but I am old school, I know.

I will just admit it now…I am one of “those” people. I wear the same scent for years once I find a signature scent. I’ve been wearing Tom Ford Violet Blonde. It’s not for everyone but for some reason it blends beautifully with my skin chemistry. I love smelling and trying all scents though. There’s just so many!

Me too, the scents I wear I have worn for years but I do tend to wear body spray more in the summer than perfume since it is so hot here, I prefer something lighter in the summers

Aliage?! Do they still make that? I wore that 30 years ago (yes I’m old!), and I loved it at the time. It is very green and woodsy, and very different to what was around then. A cab driver told me that I smelled like a “cedar chest”, which I’m guessing was not a complement, lol. I didn’t care, I still loved it. I’m going to have to go and look for a tester 🙂

Living in AZ it is still hot through the fall so I don’t typically change fragrances until end of Oct, beginning of Nov. In the winter I typically switch to Ralph Lauren Romance and sometimes Perry Ellis 360° (even though that one isn’t my husband’s favorite). Issey Miyake’s L’eau d’ Issey is one that I do wear year round though

Hm… probably Hermes Un Jardin Apres la Mousson? It has a not of black pepper that seems somehow very autumnal to me… I have no idea why, LOL!

Olde Cider Haus and Cozy Sweater by Haus of Gloi.

Lamb’s Wool, Harvest Moon, and Moroccan Pumpkin Patch by Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab.

Lolita Lempicka, Prada Candy, Molinard’s Vanille (it’s fairly linear, which makes it a great fragrance to layer with other scents.), and I also love Fancy Bread by Haus of Gloi, which I wear as a comfort scent. I can’t walk by the jar of pumpkin butter without sniffing it, mmmmm!

Gucci Guilty. It’s just sensual enough for me. And a welcome change of pace from all the Marc Jacobs fragrances I favor for spring/summer. I am on the hunt for something with a more musky perfume though. Those fragrances just stir something in me.

Ormonde Jayne Ta’if is the most wonderful rose and saffron, and probably the one I associate most strongly with Autumn. Tauer’s Incense Rose is to die for, and Neela Vermiere’s Mohur is also perfect for fall.
