10 Best Fall Perfumes That Conjure The Coziness of The Season

best french perfumes for fall

Here are the ten best fall perfumes that are worth a spot on your vanity! Now that autumn has arrived, you can swap out your breezy summer scents for richer concentration, warmer and protective fragrances.

For the autumn season, think of enveloping notes like woods, moss, vetiver, amber, musk, spices, vanilla, and leather-faceted and chypre fragrances. Basically, any scent that recalls the smell of the forest, the woods, the mosses, the smell of mushrooms, the smell of green grass, and the smell of fire in the chimney.

It’s the perfect season to opt for a spicier, woodsier, creamier, and all-around richer perfume. And to help you make the decision of which scent to wear this season, I’ve rounded up the best fall perfumes that truly conjure the coziness of the season. Keep scrolling to find your new signature scent for the fall season.

Hermès Vétiver Tonka

Vétiver Tonka by Hermès is a woody chypre fragrance for women and men. It was created by Jean-Claude Ellena in 2004. This fragrance is tender vetiver, enveloping and warm, smoothed out by velvety hazelnut. A hint of praline is mixed with the sweetness of Tonka beans to soften the earthy, rough effect of the roots.

Trudon Aphélie

Aphélie by Trudon is a fragrance for women created in 2021 by Antoine Lie. Borrowing its name from a star that returns to the light after reaching the furthest point of the star around which it revolves, Aphélie, personified, is mysterious.

The top notes are Rose and Ivy, Cassis, Oakmoss, and the base notes are Tonka Bean and Sandalwood. It’s one of my favorite perfumes to wear in the autumn season!

Diptyque Fleur de Peau

Fleur de Peau by Diptyque is a floral aldehyde fragrance for women and is one of my favorite perfumes for fall! If you love musk, you’re going to love this very enveloping and comforting fragrance.

Notes are Aldehydes, Pink Pepper, Angelica, Bergamot, iris, and Turkish Rose and base notes are Musk, Ambrette, Carrot, Ambergris, Sandalwood, Leather, and Amberwood.

Sisley Eau du Soir

Eau du Soir by Sisley is a chypre floral fragrance for women and created by Jeannine Mongin, Hubert d’Ornano and Isabelle d’Ornano. This fragrance is complex and based on the perfect harmony of contrasted lines: fresh citrus, sensual flowers, warm amber, and musk.

For the little story, countess Isabelle d’Ornano was given Eau de Soir as a gift by her husband, count Hubert d’Ornano in 1990. The perfume was created to remind the countess of her childhood in Spain. And for several years Eau de Soir was the countess’ personal perfume and it was no sooner than 1999, that it was released to the public.

Diptyque Orphéon

Orphéon by Diptyque is a woody chypre fragrance for women and men launched in 2021. This fragrance is inspired by the nightlife and intellectual life of Paris in the 1960s.

Imagine a Parisian bazaar at the corner of rue Pontoise, where philosophical, political, and cultural meetings take place around important personalities such as Sartre, Camus, or Vadim. It’s the perfect perfume for fall with its notes of Juniper Berries, Jasmine, Patchouli, Musk, Cedar, Tonka Bean, and Tabacco.

Le Labo Santal 33

Santal 33 by Le Labo is a woody aromatic fragrance for women and men. This fragrance was created in 2011 by Frank Voelkl. This eau de parfum is born from a memory of an old Marlboro advert —its defining image of the spirit of the American West and all its implied ideals of masculinity and personal freedom.

Let yourself be carried away by notes of Cardamom Iris, Violet, and Ambroxan, combined with Australian Sandalwood, Papyrus, and Cedarwood. As a finishing touch, accords of Leather, Musk, and spices make their way into the experience.

Frederic Malle Portrait of a Lady

Portrait of a Lady by Frederic Malle is an amber floral fragrance for women. This fragrance was launched in 2010 and created by Dominique Ropion.

Femme by Rochas is a fruity spicy chypre fragrance that was created by perfumier Marcel Rochas in 1945 for his wife Hélène as an homage to her feminity and an expression of his great love for her.
