3 Vastly Different Fall Scents

How do you pick your scent each day (if you don’t have a signature one)? Do you pick by mood? If I spray one on, would I have chosen a different one two hours later? If this is indeed the case, these next three scents would fit your behavior too. Though they seem to be polar opposites, each struck a chord (no pun intended) in me when it was time to choose a scent. 

{mood: strong, present, independent} LAVANILA Pure Vanilla EDP ($42/1oz, $58/1.7oz @ – when you find something that you do well, keep doing it well. I think that should be the mantra of the Lavanilla line; they have a formula for what they put out and don’t stray too far from it with the new scents. This one combines Madagascar vanilla, Freesia, Patchouli, Heliotrope and Tonka Bean, for a scent that has staying power and will all day.

{mood: enigmatic, ladylike, stylish} SAGE Onyx ($45/1/8th oz roll-on @ – this one seems to have the staying power of an ox! And it should with so many base notes in it like vanilla, amber, and musk. The oakmoss, tobacco and black coconut give this one an air of mystery and I like that the scent doesn’t seem to change much throughout the course of the day. This is probably because this one only contains pure essential oils and no alcohol, water or other chemicals. Wanna learn more about Ms. Sage Machado (yes a real person is behind this line!), click on over to Beauty Bender blog and read a cool Q&A they conducted with her.

{mood: mysterious, feminine, unique} DOLCE & GABBANA Pour Femme Intense EDP ($79/.8oz, $93/1.6oz, $112/3.3oz @ – though the brand’s fragrances are known for being anything but light, this is one of the more enjoyable ones they’ve put out in the past few years. With notes of Raspberry, Green Mandarin, Neroli, Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Tuberose, Musk and Sandalwood, you get a dab of sweetness on a bed of pure seduction. Do you dare?
