Best new fragrances that smell like autumn

Autumnal Perfumes

The changing of seasons is the perfect excuse to switch up your perfume. 

“As the days get cooler, richer scents become more comforting,” explains fragrance expert Nick Gilbert. He recommends sweeter notes, such as vanilla, tonka and marshmallow; gentle woods such as sandalwood; sensual white florals; and the balmy warmth of amber. Here are Gilbert’s top picks.

Maison Margiela Mutiny

Autumnal fragrances

“Tuberose is an excellent floral when the evenings draw in as it smells most intensely at night, making Mutiny, with its flash of tuberose and hit of leather, an opulent and daring scent.”

£117 for 90ml,

Mizensir Celebes Wood

Autumnal Fragrances

“Woods work so brilliantly in the cooler weather because they are the best for achieving that fragrance of ‘your skin but better’. Try Celebes Wood with its intense woodiness and musky accord.”

£175 for 100ml,

Princess By Kilian

“Gourmand notes have been popular for years, but Kilian gives them an unexpected twist with Princess - fluffy marshmallows with fresh green tea and fiery ginger.”

£110 for 100ml,
