As we close on September and feel that slight chill in the air, you know it is time for Fall! If you are in the northeast you definitely already have your sweaters and infinity scarves ready for the temp to hit 59 degrees. However, even if it still remains a balmy 72 degrees in your neck of the woods, here are some products that are Fall in a bottle and will certainly get you in the Autumn spirit! These products range from lotions, and body oils, to good old fashion perfume and candles (some scents even come in all four and even more!)
1. Dossier Perfume
Starting off strong we have a perfume brand that has an array of perfumes that radiate the smell of those warm, fall scents of cinnamon, vanilla, amber, and more! These perfumes can be worn alone or even layered with other perfumes! Their Ambery Vanilla Perfume is inspired by YSL’s Black Opium and opens with a hint of pear mixed with a hidden note of licorice. Next, it evolves into highly qualitative notes of orange blossom and jasmine flowers, warmed up with deep vanilla and black coffee. Sensuous and yummy, Ambery Vanilla is a multi-faceted fragrance that starts off bright and gourmand, evolving into an intoxicating floral with warmth. If you are looking for a sweeter scent, try layering it with their Gourmand Patchouli Perfume is also inspired by another perfume, in this case, Mugler’s Angel. This spray stirs the senses with notes of cacao, marshmallow, cotton candy, and grilled almonds. Combined with base notes of patchouli, this scent is layered, multi-faceted, and elaborate enough to transport you back to summer nights by the campfire. Intoxicating, yummy, and assertive, Gourmand Patchouli is a real statement that can quickly have you under its spell. If you do choose to layer the scents, you will be gifted with a complimentary blend with a burst of gourmand notes, such as licorice, coffee, cacao, and honey, paired with a patchouli and vanilla base. Dossier’s perfumes are vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben and phthalate free; and contain no colorants or UV filters.
Replica never disappoints when it comes to great-smelling perfumes, and the autumn season is no different! Their Autumn Vibes perfume features a woody, earthy scent with key notes from red berries, cardamom, moss, and cedarwood. This crisp, woody perfume balances a note of fresh fir balsam with spicy cardamom alongside the warm scent of cedarwood to re-create a familiar moment of escape and gathering on an autumn day. Their signature bottle style is influenced by the look of classic apothecary jars. The luxe bottle has a cotton label with black-ink text and a unique pump wrapped with rope as an homage to the original couture line. The Polaroid photograph of leaves printed on the carton echoes the woody fragrance within. Another great Fall inspired perfume is their By The Fireplace scent. This warm scent combines orange flower, clove oil, and chestnut atop a comforting vanilla fragrance to re-create the signature warmth and coziness of a crackling fire. With the warm and spicy notes of clove, orange, and vanilla, this perfume will make you want to cuddle up with some warm cider and watch the Fall rain pitter-patter outside. This scent is also featured in candle form!
3. Skylar Clean Beauty
These scents are featured in rollerball bottles, candles, and perfume spray bottles. Our first scent, Fall Cashmere, will remind you of your cozy sweater on a crisp Fall day! With notes of cinnamon bark, roasted almonds, and spicy ginger, another warm and spicy spray that you will wear for this holiday season. There is no luxury like cashmere—beautiful, tactile, enduring. Fall Cashmere is a sophisticated olfactory experience akin to the elevated comfort of a timeless textile. Like a warm chai latte, it features a clove, cinnamon bark, and ginger mix, grounded by creamy sandalwood and smooth, caramelized vanilla. Enjoy the magic of autumn anytime you crave it. Another scent that will remind you of fresh rain on an early Fall day is Willow Woods. There is nothing like the smell of trees to remind you how to thrive. Restorative pine and fir balsam make up the heart notes of the wonderfully meditative Willow Woods, with a woody base and a hint of heliotrope flower on top. It’s a true outdoor scent that brings the serenity of nature with you wherever you are. Their convenient rollerball bottles are 100% recyclable. When the bottle is empty, remove the plastic roller with the ball and wash thoroughly. Recycle the bottle and cap and place the roller with the ball in the trash. The box is made of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper, please place it in the recycling bin when finished.
4. Urban Outfitters
If you want to smell more like a Fall dessert, Urban Outfitters has the perfumes for you! Their Gourmand Eau De Parfum Fragrance in Pumpkin Crème captures the smell of a fresh pumpkin pie that can be sprayed anywhere. This scent has notes of (you guessed it) pumpkin spice, while also including a creaming tome of sandalwood with a spice of nutmeg to combine all of these delicious, spicy scents! Another scent available is a more warm yet sweet smell is their Ambre Vanille. This one includes the gentle touch of almond flower, vanilla bourbon, and amber while overlaying creamy notes of sandalwood. The scent also includes touches of bergamot and musk to bring the scents together for a warm, inviting lasting scent of Autumn. The vegan and cruelty-free formulas are derived from sweet almond and apricot oils, featuring either a decadent scent that carries with you wherever the day – or night – takes you.
As we all know, Bath and Body Works go all out for their seasonal scents, but we are just going to pick a few that really make our Fall dreams come true! One of their newest scents, Fall in Bloom, features scents that you find from the outdoor greenery during the season. With notes of juicy plum, wild blooms, and velvet moss, this perfume smells like the most beautiful fall bouquet—vibrant, warm, and sweet. Features in perfume, shower gel, body wash, body scrub, body lotion, wall plug-in, and candle as well. Also, a new addition to the Bath and Body Works scent catalog is a part of their Aromatherapy collection; Cinnamon Sandalwood. This essential oil mist smells of soothing cinnamon and calming sandalwood, or a cozy night in! You can use this versatile spray to fragrance your skin, maybe make every shower a little more luxe, and freshens up your pillow and linens. The spray is made with vitamin E oil, natural essential oils, and aloe; made without parabens or artificial dyes.
These fragrances will be the perfect addition to this season’s comfy sweaters and fuzzy socks, to your pumpkin spice latte. Happy Fall!
