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.

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.

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.

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!

Oud Wood is good I have a mini bottle,need to get a regular
bottle someday when dropping that kind of cash seems
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.

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

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

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.

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!

Vero Profumo Rubj edp (passionfruit, orange blossom, cumin)
Ormonde Jayne Ta’if edp (Ta’if rose, saffron)
Neela Vermiere Mohur (spicy rose)
Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay
l’Artisan Seville a l’aube (orange blossom, beeswax, incense, lavendar)
Serge Lutens Une Voix Noire (gardenia, tobacco, boozy)

Maison Francis Kurkdjian – Absolue Pour le Soir
Chanel Coromandel
Must de Cartier
Escentric Molecules – Molecule 01
Juliette Has A Gun – Not A Perfume

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.
