BEST FALL FRAGRANCES
The fragrance class has been infused with a major dosage of enchantment this go-round: There are new faces from majorly cool designers, FALL FRAGRANCES that truly, really possess a scent reminiscent of nothing we’ve noticed before and bottles so lovely we’re now plotting ways to re-purpose them after the potion runs out.
1. Golden Hour
Brilliant and sparkly fruit notes mix with warm musks and rich rose for the most consistent aroma move into the cooler season.
Michael Kors Rose Radiant Gold, $100, bloomingdales.com.
2. Seductive Powers
Azzedine Alaïa needed this, his first scent, to possess an aroma similar to the cool water his grandma would sprinkle on the hot walls of his childhood home in Tunisia; pink pepper, violet and peony join to reproduce the memory and the outcome is as surprising and artful as you’d anticipate from the designer.
Alaïa Paris Eau de Parfum, $150, saks.com.
3. Dark Romance
In the event that a charmed forest could be bottled, this is the thing that it would possess an aroma similar to: wood, night sky, black flowers and a slight feeling of peril.
Givenchy L’Atelier Gaïac Mystique, $220, barneys.com.
4. Dream Girl
Demonstrate to us the lady who says it’s what’s within that counts and we’ll demonstrate her Miu’s presentation fragrance bottle; we’re keeping it around long after the really floral juice (a limited structure of lily of the valley, jasmine, rose absolute, wood and patchouli) inside is no more.
Miu Eau de Parfum, $86, neimanmarcus.com.
5. Big Spender
We like to trust that even if we didn’t know the name, despite everything we’d notice this and think: liberal. It’s sumptuous without being flashy, gourmand without the sugary headache.
Marc Jacobs Decadence, $120, available October 2015 at sephora.com.
