Whatever your perfume preference, there’s something in this fresh batch to charm your senses.
Nothing completes a good outfit like a fine scent and the Fall/Winter season has plenty to offer in that field. While Spring/Summer fragrances evoked sunshine, green meadows and flower gardens, this season is set to bring out your inner goddess and Khaleesi.
There are new floral scents for those who live in summer all year long (which includes us) as well as more sensual and intense notes to warm the soul on a cold day (perfect for night outs). Whatever your perfume preference, there’s something in this fresh batch to charm your senses.
Here are eight of our favourite fragrance picks to add to your vanity this season.
Jo Malone London Honeysuckle & Davana
For the one who loves the countryside: Jo Malone London’s new cologne is made for the girl who prefers floral scents, featuring top notes of Davana – a green plant with hints of liquorice. At its heart is a sweet, radiant burst of honeysuckle that settles into an earthy, woody touch of damp moss after a rainy day. W jomalone.com.my
Carolina Herrera Good Girl Velvet Fatale
For the Good Girl gone bad: Embodying the idea that ‘good girls are bad girls that never get caught’, the signature Good Girl fragrance now comes in a limited edition red velvet stiletto-design bottle that is as elegant as it is sexy. Show off your good side with hints of tuberose and jasmine sambac, then indulge your bad side with the seductive musk of tonka bean and cocoa. W carolinaherrera.com
Tom Ford Lost Cherry
For the playful gal: Tom Ford’s new Private Blend is not for the monotonous. Its full-bodied composition is a seamless dichotomy of exotic, candied cherry at the top and heart and a luscious blend of sandalwood, roasted tonka and cedar at its base. One whiff is enough to conjure the fantasy of a lost adventure – are you up for it? W tomford.com
Burberry Her Eau de Parfum
For the young, wild and free: The first fragrance of the house to feature the new Burberry logo, Her Eau de Parfum is inspired by the youthful spirit of its city of birth: London. Its floral-fruity body starts off with a hint of red and dark berry notes before blooming into violet and jasmine and drying down to the warmth of woods and amber. W burberry.com
JOY by Dior
For the ever-joyful spirit: As its name suggests, this Eau de Parfum is designed for the gentle and light-hearted woman. Enclosed in a pink bottle with shining silver threads surrounding its lid to represent femininity, the sparkling gourmand mirrors the unending joy of its user. Zested bergamot and mandarin give it a fruity character, balanced by the floral notes of rose grasse absolute and jasmine as well as creamy sandalwood and musk at the base. W dior.com

Jimmy Choo Fever Eau de Parfum
For the lady of mystery: It’s sexy. It’s glamourous. But it also feels a little ambiguous. The new signature perfume by Jimmy Choo opens with the notes of juicy plum, lychee and grapefruit rounding off to heliotope, vanilla orchid and jasmine in the middle. A warm trail of sandalwood, benzoin and tonka bean follows at the base for a sensual finish. W jimmychoo.com
For the rule breaker: Reinterpreted from the original fragrance inspired by Audrey Hepburn in 1957, the new L’interdit is imbued with a fearless femininity that flirts with the dark side. The floral-woody scent beautifully contrasts heart notes of white flowers such as tuberose, jasmine and orange blossom with the base notes of patchouli and vetiver to leave an unforgettable, intense trace.

Bulgari Rose Goldea Jacky Tsai Edition
For the admirer of art: In conjunction with the first anniversary of the fragrance, Chinese artist Jacky Tsai designed a limited edition bottle for the Bulgari Rose Goldea. At first glance, its femininity shines through the pop art-inspired flowers. A closer look then reveals a woman’s face outlined by the house’s iconic Serpenti snake. Its floral musk scent is retained from the original, featuring top notes of pomegranate and rose petals; heart notes of Damascena rose and jasmine; and base notes of sandalwood and musks.
