I have been on a fragrance kick lately, and just recently have been able to handle perfume again (I was super nauseous for most of my first trimester!) When Fall rolls around I want a more woodsy, spicy scent with a hint of sweetness. These are my top fragrance picks that I have been trying out this season and can’t get enough of.
1.) Dolce & Gabbana | The Only One | – This particular fragrance is very feminine and has notes of coffee, vanilla, and bergamot. It is in the warm and spicy scent family, however, it still has some sweetness to it. If you want something with a little spice, and floral this is for you!
2.) Yves Saint Laurent | Black Opium Neon | – If you like the classic YSL Black Opium, then you will love this one. Key notes are coffee, orange blossom, and dragon fruit accord. It’s warm and spicy, but also sweet and the staying power is amazing.
3.) The 7 Virtues | Santal Vanille | – This is just heavenly AND clean! Most clean fragrances I’ve tried just don’t have the lasting power, and this one does. They describe the scent as reminiscent of a cashmere sweater wrapped in creamy coconut with vanilla, infused with warm myrrh and rich sandalwood. Sandalwood benefits the mind and supports focus. I love the backstory of this brand as well and highly recommend this fragrance.
4.) Skylar | Fall Cashmere | – I recently received this one in my monthly Scentbird box and I cannot get enough!! It reminds me of an older fragrance that’s no longer around that I would wear, so I was super excited to discover this one. It’s another clean beauty fragrance that has lasting wear. If you love a really rich, warm, and spicy scent you’ll love Fall Cashmere. The key notes of cinnamon bark, roasted almond, and spiced ginger give it a warm chai latte-like indulgence. I personally am a fan of more rich scents like these, but if you want something with a little sweetness to it, I’d go with one of the first 3 I mentioned.
5.) Dime Beauty | Lovely Dreams | – I recently tried my mom’s bottle and ended up loving it. It’s another clean fragrance that has lasting wear! This is described as a floral, citrus scent, but honestly, I find it more warm and spicy! I smell more of the Vanilla Bean, Blonde Woods, Soft Musks, and Tonka Bean notes than I do the floral and citrus notes. It’s really sexy and sophisticated, but not overpowering.
