Which Perfume Will Be Your Fall Scent?
Many of you have asked about the popular scents for fall. Since the trending fall nail colors are ones that we would have least expected to be hot this fall — but colors that we love now that we have on our evergreen tree-colored nails — many are wondering if any new, off-the-wall scents are out there, or if there are any good classic scents to try this fall.
I have my go to scent that I wear mostly in the fall, but there are three new scents for the season that are readily available, and that I find to be intoxicating in a good way.
My go to scent for fall is Chanel No. 5. It is a classic scent that anyone from grandmothers to mothers to daughters can wear for almost any occasion without fear that it would ever be inappropriate.
The scent is sophisticated with undertones of sweetness that are very subtle, so as not to overpower the entire scent as a whole. It is an intricate blend of floral notes with a hint of a citrus scent along with the subtle sweetness that sits below. The ever-amazing Coco Chanel created this perfume wanting it to embody not a girly girl, but a woman with an independent streak who is strong yet feminine. All the women in my family have worn it and have passed it down to me. If you want to try a scent that will never go out of style, buy a bottle of Chanel No. 5. The bottle itself is very classy and oozes chicness. There is a reason this perfume is still one of the best selling in the world. It makes a lovely gift also, since the scent isn’t overpowering and can be worn for any occasion.
The Nirvana collection from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen — Nirvana Rose and Nirvana Bourbon — are also hot for the coming fall and Christmas seasons.
Nirvana Rose is a classic scent like Chanel No.5, but with more of a sweetness to it. The scent is appropriate for many occasions since it is not sickeningly sweet, but rather a simple sweetness that is a modern floral of geranium, rose de mai and vetiver.
Nirvana Bourbon is more of a sultry scent that smells like an oriental cocktail of vanilla notes infused with woody oak and tuberose. This scent would probably be worn best for a night out to dinner after work or for a romantic date with that special someone.
The final scent is Purple Fig by Urban Escape. This is a scent that, like the fall color trends, you might not be used to wearing in autumn. The scent wakes you up and makes you feel like you are ready to go walk the trails of a secret garden, yet still smell the cedar trees that are starting to lose their leaves with the coming months. The scent is, after all, inspired by the secret garden-walled alleys of the Rue Oberkampf in Paris. It does a great job of infusing two opposites together: the citrus burst of lemon, which will wake you up, with a strong scent of woody cedar and cypress mixed together.
Whether you choose to go for a classic scent or something that is bolder, any of these perfumes will not let you down.
