I’m readjusting my nose right now to fall and the coming season and here are a few that are working great for the transition. They still have summery flowery notes but also have something a little different to makes each appealing for fall.
From L to R clockwise:
VICTORIA’S SECRET Sexy Little Things Noir Tease Eau de Parfum ($45/1.7oz @ victoriassecret.com) – I wasn’t too thrilled with this one upon first, second or third whiff. I was almost ready to write it off as ehh and it just didn’t do as much for me like its sister, when, for some reason, I am suddenly liking it! Classified as an oriental vanilla, I can’t tell if it’s the black vanilla, frozen pear or blooming gardenia that is turning me on, but it’s a go.
ROGER & GALLET Green Tea Fresh Fragrant Water Spray ($21.60/1oz and other sizes @ smallflower.com) – who doesn’t like the green tea scent? It works for any season and it’s pretty unisex. It contains top notes of yuzu, mandarin orange and grapefruit, middle notes of green tea, white freesia, jasmine and lily of the valley and base notes of cedar wood, gualac wood and amber. This one seems to linger on the skin for quite a while.
EMILIO PUCCI Miss Pucci Eau de Parfum ($53/1oz and other sizes @ sephora.com) – they call this a soft floral that surprisingly works for right now; not quite still-summer but not quite full-on-fall. The notes include that of Sicilian Lemon, Turkish Rose, Comoros Ylang-Ylang, Arabian Jasmine, Tunisian Orange Blossom, Texas Cedar, Florentine Iris and Musk. If you’re looking to make a statement when you walk in a room, this could be one for you.
PRADA Infusion D’Iris Eau de Toilette ($65/6.75oz and other sizes @ neimanmarcus.com) – from what I understand the brand already has this perfume in a Eau de Parfum version and it has totally different notes and is the next chapter in the sensory history of iris. This one is composed of iris, neroli, lily of the valey, powder violet, heliotrope, cedar and galbanum. And this one comes in a sophisticated frosty glass. Nice touch, P.
