In this article, I will talk about the best perfumes for fall and winter. For this season, I like to wear a fragrance with a powerful scent that’s able to cut through the weather and still be so abundant as to announce my entrance before I even arrive!

5 Wonderful Autumn Perfumes

  1. Tom Ford Shanghai Lily
  2. Dior Hypnotic Poison
  3. Perry Ellis Oud Vetiver Royale Absolute
  4. Imaginary Authors Slow Explosions
  5. Lancome Tubereuses Castane

Note: These are not the best or top from every perfume in existence, but the ones I feel are some of the best from my personal collection. I would love to hear your opinion about what you think is the best perfume for fall, so feel free to leave a comment!

Tom Ford Shanghai Lily

1. Tom Ford Shanghai Lily

Main Accords:

  • Warm spicy
  • Floral
  • Balsamic
  • Woody

This is a fragrance that works well for other seasons just as it does for fall. This turns quite sweet on my skin; it has vanilla in the base of this fragrance, so you definitely get the sweetness, especially when it dries down. I have heard a lot of people say that it's too spicy on their skin, but to be honest, I don’t really get too much spiciness. It is a spicy white floral, but it’s not overwhelming at all!

To me, it’s just a beautiful blend of the white floral, spice and sweetness that all come together in harmony to create this beautiful fragrance! Very unique for a white floral and a must-have!

Dior Hypnotic Poison

2. Dior Hypnotic Poison

Main Accords:

  • Sweet
  • Nutty
  • Vanilla
  • Almond

This is a sweet, gourmand marzipan fragrance, very unique and delicious-smelling. It’s so well-balanced: It's not too loud, but it still projects gracefully as to garner a compliment every time it is worn. It's very classy, versatile and long-lasting! Some fragrances are worth a higher price, and this is definitely one of those fragrances that always enhances the lady that wears it. It's warm and sexy, yet not too overpowering if applied correctly. A perfect fall/winter fragrance!

3. Perry Ellis Oud Vetiver Royale Absolute

Main Accords:

  • Woody
  • Patchouli
  • Fresh spicy
  • Oud

This fragrance is amazing, especially if you are a huge vetiver fan; this is a great scent! This smells to me like a forest in the fall—a cool, mysterious, beautiful woodsy forest. The vetiver in this perfume plays really well with the oud, but the slight touch of the juniper in it really sets it apart and makes it so magical. It’s also a very affordable scent and works well for both men and women!

Imaginary Authors Slow Explosions

4. Imaginary Authors Slow Explosions

Main Accords:

  • Leather
  • Warm spicy
  • Rose
  • Fruity

This scent plays with apple so smartly and creatively. You get saffron, leather, rose and apple. It’s a very crisp apple, but the scent itself is a little bit soft, and leather just makes it so beautiful because the notes balance each other out so well. Leather is more velvety suede, while the apple gives it a little bit of crispness and sweetness that works really well with the rose and the saffron! This is definitely a beautiful daytime fragrance and also one of the most popular fragrances from the Imaginary Authors, and it’s really easy to see why once you smell this!

Lancome Tubereuses Castane

5. Lancome Tubereuses Castane

Main Accords:

  • Tuberose
  • White floral
  • Sweet
  • Balsamic

This is a beautiful scent! It's warm and sweet, but there’s still a slight crispness to it. It's easily one of the most beautiful tuberose scents I’ve ever smelled. The gourmand tuberose note is really delicious; it adds nuttiness and smells like a dessert, but that white floral is just absolutely gorgeous. It’s syrupy and velvety but has a lightness to it that makes it absolutely magical!

It works so ridiculously well for the fall season. You cannot go wrong with this one when choosing the perfect perfume for fall afternoons and mornings. That is when this fragrance will really shine!
