Someone told me a few years ago “I’ve never smelled anyone who smells as good as you” and I’ve never forgotten it. I pride myself on my scent reflecting my mood. Hell, the scent I choose each morning is affected by my mood. Truth be told, choosing my scent is oftentimes more important than choosing my outfit. Having someone tell me I smell lovely is the best compliment I could ever receive, especially if I’ve put thought into my scent that day, like picking out my best fall perfumes. 

Even if your goal isn’t to be the human embodiment of a perfumery (like me), rest assured you can still smell like heaven all year round with these five incredible fall perfumes. Smelling good isn’t just for a moment – it’s a lifestyle. 

What are the best fall perfumes we’re loving at the moment?

Here are my 5 picks for the best autumnal fragrances that will leave you smelling incredible all year round.

Le Labo Patchouli 24

Best Fragrances

The first time I smelled Patchouli 24 in a Le Labo boutique, I was intrigued, but not sold. One of the boutique associates, called “Souls”, ever-so-subtly told me to dab a bit on my wrist and on my neck, just behind my ear, and let it sit throughout the day. By the end of the day I’d never received more compliments and I didn’t want to take the scent off. Patchouli 24 can only be described as deep, earthy, sultry, musky (in the best way), and completely intoxicating. It’s perfect for the cold weather months, and an unexpected power move come summer.   

Parfums De Marly Delina Exclusif

Best Fragrances

At $375 a bottle, I wouldn’t necessarily call this perfume a “dupe” for Love Don’t Be Shy by Kilian. What I will say is its Love Don’t Be Shy’s more worldly, well-travelled older sister. It’s at first very fruity and sweet but it’s base of vanilla and musk gives it a more well-rounded, full-bodied smell. If you’re looking for a show-stopping scent, look no further.

Clive Christian Blonde Amber 

Best Fragrances

The description for this perfume is “sweet, sensual and smoky with an aromatic twist” and we couldn’t agree more. With notes of tonka, blonde tobacco and bitter orange, this perfume is sweet, earthy and romantic. Let it sit on your skin throughout the day to really experience it’s full, gorgeous depth. The more you smell it throughout the day, the better it gets.  

Maison Margiela ‘Replica’ Autumn Vibes 

Best Fragrances

Woody and spicy, Autumn Vibes by Replica is their most quintessential fall fragrance and the most autumnal our list of the 5 best fall perfumes that you can wear year round. It has notes of cardamom, moss accord and cedar wood. This fragrance is woody, earthy, a bit spicy with just a hint of sweetness to round it out. It’s flirty, fun, and says “I live for autumn”.

Byredo Vanilla Antique 

Best Fragrances

If you’re a fan of sweet scents but looking for something a bit deeper and full-bodied, Vanilla Antique by Byredo is for you. The top notes are plum and musk, giving it a warm and intimate feel, with base notes of vanilla and amber for a comforting, sensual feel. Vanilla Antique is a perfume suitable for year-round, but with its sweet and musky smell, we think it’s an absolutely perfect scent to debut in the fall.
