We will always have our favorite signature scents that maintain permanent real estate on our vanity — but the transition into fall calls for something sweeter, softer, cozier. In the same way you might layer a cashmere sweater over your T-shirt, there’s an urge to warm up with the chill in the air. Last year’s vanilla resurgence persists well into 2023 and continues to be the scent that everyone can’t stop wearing. D.S. & Durga, Byredo, and Boy Smells are just a few of the many brands that have spiced up the smell of nostalgia with their latest launches. Ellis Brooklyn and 7 Virtues sweetened things up and went a bit more fruity with their latest launches.
If gourmands aren’t for you, earthy fragrances from Finery and Memo Paris will take your senses to the great outdoors, while you stay bundled inside. And for those wanting to really heat things up this season — much like a night bundled by the fire or roasting marshmallows — take the smoky-wood route and scroll to Kilian Paris’ new take on tobacco.
Ahead, the 24 best fragrances to help you transition into the new season.
