Top 5 Fragrances I’ve Worn this Past Fall & Winter

Top 5 Fragrance for Fall winter

Spring is here, but the weather hasn’t been warm enough for me to ditch some of the fragrances I’ve had on heavy rotation during the fall and winter months. So before it gets too warm, and I have to switch out the warmer fragrances for something lighter and crisp for the spring and summer, I wanted to share my Top 5 Fragrances worn during this past fall and winter. Maybe you’ll get some inspiration for fragrances to add to your collection for next fall and winter.

Tom Ford Black Orchid Bottle

Tom Ford Black Orchid (review)

Tom Ford Black Orchid makes a comeback every fall and winter season. I love this scent, especially how delectable is the dry-down into chocolate and berries, and then spice with a little smoke. It’s a very sexy fragrance that’s suitable for a romantic night out on the town.

Top Notes: French jasmine, black truffle, ylang-ylang, black currant and effervescent citrus.

Middle Notes: floral, and spice, Tom Ford’s black orchid

Base Notes: Woodsy notes (patchouli and sandalwood), dark chocolate, incense, amber, vetiver, vanilla and balsam.

Atkinsons Oud Save the King

Atkinsons Atkinsons Oud Save The King

Atkinsons Oud Save the King was a new addition to my fragrance collection; it was an anniversary present from my husband. First, I love the bottle! How pretty is the gold finish? Although this Oud is a masculine fragrance, a woman who loves masculine scents can definitely wear it. It’s a smooth woody fragrance with a hint of vanilla that is both warm and inviting. I’ve worn this during the day while working my 9-5, and found that it isn’t too heavy for the office. It is also the perfect fragrance for an evening out that will for sure last for hours.
Top Notes: A fusion of earl gray tea and bergamot.

Middle Notes: Orrisroot absolute and suede accords.

Base Notes: Woody mixture of sandalwood and oud.


Serge Lutens La Relgieuse

Serge Lutens La Religieuse

La Religieuse, a unisex fragrance is perfect for the jasmine lover. The dark purple parfum is lush and pleasant. It is a unique, and well-balanced fragrance that does a good job at balancing both light and dark notes that make it an alluring and mysterious scent. The vanilla dry-down make it perfect for wear during winter. It’s both classy enough for work and sexy enough for late night outings. My only riff with this fragrance is the sillage and longevity; Serge Lutens LA RELIGIEUSE doesn’t last very long post spray. I’d say I’d get 2-3 hours of wear before I would have to reapply it.

Notes: Jasmine, Incense, Civet, and Musk

Flora by Gucci Eau De Parfum

Flora by Gucci Eau de Parfum 

Flora by Gucci is one of my favorite feminine scents. Although a floral fragrance, I find that wearing it during the warmer months can morph the fragrance from beautiful to cloying and overwhelming. I think that’s due to the blend of patchouli and sandalwood, which add a bit more depth to the fragrance than what’s needed during the spring and summer. Therefore, I reserve it as my spring to fall transition scent.

Notes: Citrus Accord, Peony, Rose, Osmanthus Flower, Pink Pepper, and Sandalwood.

Odin 09 Posala Odin

Odin 09 Posala Odin (Review)

Odin 09 Posala Odin is a beautifully executed floral unisex fragrance. It has the perfect balance of fruitiness, spice and smoke, and becomes warmer at dry-down – think vanilla and amber. Doesn’t it sound yummy? This cozy, comforting and yet sexy fragrance has me reaching for it every fall/winter.

Top notes: Pear blossom and peach.

Middle notes: Jasmine, bourbon vanilla and orange blossom.

Base notes: tobacco, benzoin, black iris and amber.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about my favorite fragrances for fall/winter. What were yours? Do you have suggestions for spring/summer fragrances?
