When the world goes from swimsuits and cool iced tea to flannel shirts and Pumpkin Spice Lattes, it just makes sense that our perfume should change too. Leave the fruity, flowery smells of summer behind this month and transition to warmer, sensual fragrances that contain notes with hints of vanilla, woods and spices. Here are a few of our favorite new options, available in the Corridor.
Tom Ford Lost Cherry, Sephora – $335
This gorgeous perfume is deep cherry red on the inside encased in an iridescent pink bottle. The fragrance itself is like a freshly baked cherry pie with an edge. Its key note is a strong black cherry, which is the perfect mix of sweet and spicy. Turkish rose and jasmine sambac add a light touch to the perfume, and the sandalwood, vetiver and cedar give it that seductive air that will make you want to keep re-applying throughout the day.
Gucci Memoire d’une Odeur Eau de Parfum, Sephora – $120
Gucci’s newest release reminds me of that first outdoor stroll when the air has turned crisp and inviting. The light green color inside a gold-accented bottle hints to the scent inside: earthy and warm. The perfume features Roman chamomile that is laced with Indian coral jasmine petals, musky and woodsy scents for a soft, pure scent that invites you to breathe deeply and just enjoy yourself.
Hermes Twilly d’Hermes Eau Poivree, Neiman Marcus – $133
Slip on your favorite jeans and boots and do the most autumn-like activities while wearing this perfume – pumpkin carving, apple picking, watching scary movies – is all more exciting with this on. Hermes’ newest fragrance is a sweet pink with a black top and ribbon around the top, and features a daring pink peppercorn, rose and patchouli notes for a spicy floral scent. It is captivating and sweet, AKA: exactly what you need this season.
Estee Lauder Beautiful Belle Love Eau de Parfum Spray, Nordstrom – $125
Estee Lauder’s latest perfume, Beautiful Belle, is as stunning on the outside as it is on the inside. It is in a pretty rose gold bottle, with a luxurious scent that includes French sage, Turkish rose, amber, Middle Eastern almond, patchouli, Madagascar vanilla, illumine musk and orange blossom honey. The exotic, romantic scent is perfect for a date night with your beau or a cozy night in – or anytime, as it’s unique combination of fragrances is simply irresistible.
