Summer is gone (see ya later, sunshine) and autumn is here. I for one, am thrilled, because I adore autumn; the crispness in the air and the wonderful array of colours. It’s the best season and as we head into cooler times, we tend to switch out our summer fragrance wardrobe, ditching the fresh colognes in favour of comforting ambers and kaleidoscopic chypres. In my latest IGTV video I talk through six perfect fragrances for autumn – each one the perfect addition to your wardrobe.

It’s Monday, which means it’s time for another IGTV video. This week I’m taking a look at some warm and cosy scents for autumn. These are fragrances to envelop you and wrap you up, like a chunky scarf or a big coat. Enjoy the video below the jump, or you can watch directly on instagram.

Fragrances for Autumn

I’m desperately trying to get back into the swing of things following the honeymoon but I fear that I am failing miserably! I jest, of course and the truth is that writing, like all creative mediums, doesn’t always come at will and cannot be forced, and that really is OK. I have a few posts in draft that will be upcoming this week or next, one of which will be a scented look at my trip to Tokyo however. It isn’t quite ready yet, but will be worth the wait, I assure you.

Next week should be a full week with reviews of two new fragrances – one from Acqua di Parma and one from Tom Ford – along with some more new and exciting Smelly News. In the meantime, please head on over to Escentual to read my latest column, which is a look at some of my favourite autumnal fragrances (I’ve officially switched to the autumn wardrobe now). As the sun has decided to steal away its warmth and hibernate for the rest of the year, these scents are perfect little warmers in shades of red, purple, orange and brown. Enjoy!

So October is finally upon us and it’s beginning to be that time of year where we shelve our sparkling summer scents and reach for the emergency hammer to break out those warmer fragrances. Themes for the seasons are auburn spices, deep resins and glimmers of gourmand deliciousness, and if you ask me autumn is most definitely the best season fragrance-wise.

This week’s Escentual post takes a look at my ‘Autumn Wardrobe Essentials’ – those fragrances that I consider to be my staples for the season. So, please don your chunky knitwear and head over to the Escentual blog by clicking the image above. Don’t forget to tell me what your autumn staples are!
