Scents of the Season – Autumn

Scents of the Season – Autumn

The cooler weather has arrived, yet skies are still blue and the sun is shining bright. Autumn is the season to make the most of clear days before dreary winter arrives so we want a fragrance to encapsulate this mood and keep our days sunny for as long as possible!

Some might say it’s a year round fragrance but there is something about Vera Wang Princess when the temperature drops. It’s like the fresh and almost aquatic top notes of apple, waterlily and mandarin crisp up when it’s cold to further contrast with the chocolate and vanilla notes in the warm, amber base. Cool and brisk yet comforting at the same time, Princess is just the thing for when the sun is shining but there is a chill in the air.

For guys it’s time to ditch the zesty, citrusy offerings from spring and summer and opt for something with a little more depth. Intenso by Dolce and Gabbana was designed with the aim of representing a contrast between clean and fresh, and rich and warm components. At first aquatic and aromatic, Intenso develops in to a ruggedly masculine woody fragrance perfect for the onset of cooler months.
