Fall’s crisp air, back-to-school vibe and falling leaves are your cue to swap your summer scents with new seasonal spritzes. Our perfume pro, Adriana Ermter, has selected five fall fragrances that are well worth your wear.
Gucci, Bloom EDP
This magnetic scent feels like walking through a flower garden in full bloom. A bouquet of heady white jasmine and tuberose are mixed with woody orris root, sweet honeysuckle and green creeper vines. The overall effect is feminine and sensual, intoxicating and present. It’s available for $114 for 50 ml and $154 for 100 ml at Hudson’s Bay and Sephora stores across Canada.
Calvin Klein, Obsessed For Women EDP
Conjuring images of Kate Moss and Marky Mark, this reinvention on one of the brand’s most iconic women’s fragrances, Obsession, is equal parts past memories and new experiences. Aromatic and fresh, the parfum opens with tart citrus and sweet neroli flowers, while earthy and botanical violet leaf, lavender and sage provide a sophisticated touch before easing into a musky, warm and intimate finish. It’s available for $86 for 50 ml and $106 for 100 ml at Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.
Giorgio Armani, Because It’s You EDP
Fun and playful, this feminine counterpart to the masculine eau, Stronger With You, feels like the liquid incarnation of every relationship’s honeymoon phase. Ripe raspberries, pretty neroli and tangy lemon are swirled into romantic red roses before being immersed into warm vanilla, musk and amberwood. It’s available for $90 for 50 ml and $115 for 100 ml at Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.
Prada, La Femme Intense EDP
Spicy and sultry, this parfum is intended only for the bold, otherwise you won’t be wearing it but rather it will wear you. While the fragrance’s DNA is replete with spiced patchouli, ylang-ylang, tuberose, jasmine and orange blossom floral notes are released with its first spritz. Earthy and vibrant vetiver and iris with smooth vanilla provide layers of warm intensity. It’s available for $136 for 50 ml and $180 for 100 ml at Hudson’s Bay and Nordstrom stores across Canada.
Tiffany & Co., Tiffany & Co. EDP
The 180-year-old jewelry store with its prestigious robin’s egg blue boxes has launched a namesake scent. Sparkling, brilliant and iridescent, the elixir is replete with juicy mandarin, earthy iris, spicy patchouli and intimate musk and is captured in a diamond-like bottle reminiscent of the house’s famous Lucinda-cut engagement ring. Vibrant and unique, this eau has maximum impact, especially since it’s presented in the signature Tiffany Blue Box. It’s available for $120 for 50 ml and $150 for 75 ml at Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.
