Autumn Scents Review
The seasons are a-changing! The summer is officially (and sadly) over. It’s not all bad news, though, as this gives us a great excuse to indulge in some more perfumes, (to match our autumn wardrobe, right?!) and the fragrances we’ve selected here should be right up your leaf-covered street.
Calvin Klein – Euphoria for Men
This woody-aromatic fragrance for men is perfect for autumn. Released in 2006, it has top notes of ginger and black pepper alongside black basil, sage and cedar wood. A base of suede, redwood and patchouli gives this fragrance a strong, warm and masculine scent. Even the bottle has autumnal vibes, with smoky grey glass and muted metallics around the top of a chic and stylish round-cornered square.
YSL – Black Opium
Deep, dark and mysterious, Black Opium was released in 2014 and was presented as a glam-rock take on the original Opium fragrance. Top notes of pear, pink pepper and orange blossom give a sweet edge that gives way to coffee, jasmine, bitter almond, patchouli and liquorice, giving a dark and delightful fragrance. The bottle suits the contents to perfection, an elegant, black, rounded oblong with a starry night illustrated upon it and a peachy-red logo patch.
Dolce & Gabbana – The One
Launched in 2006, this fragrance for women is an amber-floral scent with a sweet amber and vanilla heart. Top notes of peach and mandarin give a soft and fruity sweetness while the amber, vanilla and vetiver in the base give it a lovely warm and deep vibe, making this a perfect autumn pick-me-up. The bottle is an elegant delight, chunky, square, smooth glass with an oversized, muted gold metallic topper.
Kenzo – Jungle L’Elephant
This classic fragrance is celebrating its 25th birthday this year, but the amber-spicy scent is an irresistible autumn staple. Top notes of cloves, cumin and mandarin orange make for a spicy opening. Laid over cardamom, caraway, liquorice, ylang-ylang, vanilla and amber, they create a long lasting and heavy scent with a sensual feel to it. The bottle is uneven but smooth, like a glass pebble, and is topped with a golden elephant.
