Fall is a fantastic time to change up your fragrance game. As the days grow shorter opt for perfumes that are still feminine, fresh and clean but have more depth, with notes of vanilla, spices, and amber that add punch to florals and sweet scents. Fall fragrances are cozy and colorful, just like the season itself. 

Don’t know where to start? Here are nine of our favorite sweater weather perfumes.

1. Alien by Thierry Mugler

Alien is a great perfume for fall. It’s a mysterious fragrance with only three listed notes: jasmine, amber and cashmere woods. Alien radiates freshness in a very unique and inviting way, that makes it a great transition scent as well. As the opening subsides, the radiant Indian jasmine emerges and rules the heart with honey-kissed blossoms lending a glow of warmth and a hint of the exotic to the amber and woody dry down.

2. Dior Hypnotic Poison 

Hypnotic Poison Perfume By CHRISTIAN DIOR

Cooler weather is the right time to reach for warm and rich perfumes. Some can come on too strong, so opt for a scent that smolders without becoming overbearing. Hypnotic Poison opens like a bite of an enchanted fruit with apricot, coconut, jasmine, rose and soft vanilla doesn’t overpower. With its combination of bitter almond, vanilla, caraway and jacaranda wood, Dior Hypnotic Poison is a compliment getter.

3. Bottega Veneta 

Bottega Veneta’s fresh bouquet of radiant jasmine, luminous iris and powdery violet wraps around the softest suede heart adding a fresh touch. Pink pepper adds some spice, and the glowing floral notes are delicately sweetened by apricot. Bottega Veneta is beautiful and memorable, a welcome embrace as the days grow quieter. Bottega Veneta perfume would be great for a fall wedding, whether you are the bride or a guest.

4. Marc Jacob Perfect

Marc Jacobs Perfect Perfume By MARC JACOBS

Marc Jacobs Perfect is a tribute to self-confident women who know exactly what they like and have flair and style. Perfect is the perfect fall fragrance composed with a shower of white jasmine and daffodil petals mixed with the luscious warm elements of golden roasted almonds and sandalwood. It’s ideal for the floral lover who wants a floral fragrance to feel richer than their other petal perfumes. Although it can be worn year-round, it is a great twist to flowery fragrances that are particularly lovely in the autumn months.

5. Prada Amber

Prada Amber Perfume

Prada is a sheer fall floral cocktail with an amber glow. Patchouli is woven through the softest rose and a sweet citrus note like a glittery thread. Facets of vanilla and soft musk blend with the light milk chocolate tone of patchouli, soft and subtle here in a very elegant and luxurious fall perfume. Wear it for day wear as it has good sillage and longevity but is never overpowering.

Find Your Perfect Fall Scent

Fall fragrances can be comfy and cozy, plush and lush, casual or elegant. Since skin can get drier during the fall, they have eau de parfum and perfume concentrations which last longer on the skin than summer scents.
