From Maison Margiela’s Jazz Club to Juliette Has a Gun’s Not A Perfume, these selections are the perfect fragrance update to complement the changing of the season
The concept of a life reset is nothing new. But as the season changes, the notion seems to be more timely. Perhaps it’s the sign to improve routines, set and work on new goals, or even make transitional beauty changes. After all, there is no other perfect time quite the present to start reassessing your approach to getting ready. And while dramatic cuts and statement colors are at the forefront of our minds, adjusting fragrance selections tends to be one of the easiest shifts to make.
In choosing a fall fragrance, it’s essential to take note of one’s scent profile preference. Do fresh floral notes bring in bliss or does a gourmand aroma have more appeal to you? Are you leaning towards a cult-favorite selection or prefer entries that are pretty underrated? Either way, there is no shortage of options in the marketplace that will surely enhance fall.
The case of fall fragrances
The relatively balmy forecast means that the beauty calendar has reached the remainder of the year, and with it comes fragrance selections that perfectly conjure the coziness of the season. It’s easy to gravitate towards the warm and spicy category, ones that envelope its wearers with the dreamy harmony of woodsy and musky aroma—but that’s not always the case. The key to finding the right scent? Focus on matching the fragrance to your seasonal mood.
