Spice, frankincense, vanilla and white musk make this a warm and inviting fragrance you'll want to envelope yourself in and cozy up to as the temperatures drop outside.
Aerin Tuberose Le Jour ($305)
A fresh, daytime scent, this tuberose interpretation is paired with neroli, orange, jasmine and cedarwood to capture the bright, airy feeling of morning sunshine, making it especially refreshing to wear as the days get shorter.
Part fruity, part floral and part woodsy, this oak-anchored scent is both sweet and earthy, making it the olfactive interpretation of fall.
Ariana Grande Moonlight ($59)
Another fragrance inspired by light, this black current, plum, marshmallow and vanilla mix is sweet and sensual, making it a sexy option now that the nights are longer than the days.
Gucci Bloom ($94)
Millennial pink packaging aside, this fragrance is also contemporary in other ways: It does floral in a way that is clean, airy, youthful with a touch of classic nostalgia thanks to familiar notes of jasmine and tuberose. The rich white florals make the fragrance feel warm and rich instead of overly springy, perfect for cooler days ahead.
Gabrielle Chanel ($135)
A sparkling scent, this long-anticipated launch from Chanel (it's the first new fragrance in 15 years) focuses on four floral notes: jasmine, orange blossom, tuberose and ylang-ylang. It's fresher, lighter and even more addicting than No. 5. Although a reasonless pick that we'll smell on women for years to come, this is nonetheless, the IT fragrance to wear right now.
The sexy smell of leather, pine, fire and all that's cozy in the fall is captured in this rich and enigmatic fragrance perfect for anyone who prefers to leave florals to other seasons.
Glossier You ($65)
An addictive musky fragrance, this scent isn't overly feminine, but it is very sexy. Base notes of ambrette and ambrox give it a creamy, almost animalistic, appeal that melts into your natural scent.
Armani Prive New York ($360)
Few places are more magical during the holidays than New York, and this Bergdorf-exclusive fragrance lets you connect to the glamour of the city, wherever you are. Peony, vanilla, white musk, citrus and spices makes this a complex, unique and energetic fragrance, much like the city it honors.
Skin is in, but Dolce & Gabbana's elegant interpretation feels more like the sensuality of slipping on a cashmere sweater than flaunting it in a bikini. It's womanly, not just feminine, and despite complex notes of Italian bergamot, lavender, vetiver, sandalwood, iris and myrrh, leave behind a fragrance that I can simply describe as clean.
Jennifer Aniston Chapter One (available soon at Kohl's)
Peaceful, balanced and calm, this new launch from the queen of coastal chic, helps you feel more centered and relaxed. Rose, bergamot, jasmine and Californian grapevine flower (a nod to Aniston's California sensibility) are done in a way that's effervescent and light, making this a great choice for hectic days or when you're just dreaming of warmer weather ahead.
Ginger, tobacco, cinnamon and anise, patouli and Moroccan rose give this perfume a semisweet, semispicy character that simultaensly smells sophisticated and cozy.
Krigler Pleasure Gardenia 79 ($635)
The very first fragrance from Krigler has gotten a holiday remake, repackaged in a diamond-shaped bottle (a homage—Albert Krigler made this perfume as an engagement present to his wife) that makes it as much a collector item as a special evening scent. Notes of gardenia, jasmine, mimosa, musk and vanilla makes this a beautifully feminine fragrance meant to be savored for the most elegant occasions.
