A change in season doesn’t only indicate a change in wardrobe, it can also mean the transition from light, flirty summer scents to more sultry fall perfume choices. While blooming fields of lavender may intoxicate the senses, perhaps it shouldn’t be your only fragrance profile all year around. Fall fragrances with their complex myriad of notes, have always followed a trend that is more on the sensual side but finding the perfect scent can be a bit daunting.

Fragrance has the powerful ability to alter moods and is an essential part of your presentation to the world. Keeping this in mind, Haute Living came up with a list of 5 of the “go to” fall fragrances that could easily become part of your signature scent.


Recently launched in 2016 by Dior, La Colle Noire is the newest edition within the exclusive La Collection Privée. Created by legendary nose and in-house perfumer, Francios Demachy it is an intense and expressive fragrance with May Rose as its central component. La Colle Noire is dedicated to Grasse and plays a pivotal part in the history of Dior perfumes. Château de La Colle Noire in Provence was bought by Christian Dior in 1951 and was his favorite place to vacation during his retirement years. Its unique composition is floral, woody and musky. It includes notes of May rose, spices, sandelwood from Sri Lanka, other woods, white musk and amber."La Colle Noire celebrates Rose de Mai, melded with spices, woods, amber and musks. The Grasse Rose is unique, spicy and powerful. It is not overly sweet, it conveys all the raw and sun-drenched beauty of this region in the south of France." - François Demachy. The fragrance is available in bottles of 120, 250 and 450 ml Eau de Parfum.


This new version of Velvet Orchid came out in 2014 created by a team of renown perfumers including, Yann Vasnier, Calice Becker, Shyamala Maisondieu and Antoine Maisondieu. It brilliantly carries on the legacy expected by the bold, glamorous floral signature that promises a unique character, atmosphere and experience of the scent. The fragrance opens with notes of bergamot, mandarin, Succan absolute (purified rum extract) and honey. At its core is Tom Ford's distinctive "timeless" blend of black orchid with notes of velvet orchid, Turkish rose oil, jasmine and a wild, purple orchid native to the southern Brazilian coast. There are also additional floral notes of orange blossom, rose absolute, narcissus, hyacinth and heliotrope. The base is warm due to the rich flavors of Peru balsam, myrrh, labdanum, sandalwood, suede and vanilla. The perfume is available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum concentration.

The first fragrance presented by Charlotte Tillbury, a British celebrity make-up artist is inspired by her signature blend of scented oils from Ibiza’s hippie markets that she has used for the past 30 years. With the help of perfumer Francois Robert she was able to compose a nostalgic ode to her fragrance profiles. The scent combines top notes of lemon, peach, mandarin, bergamot, saffron and black pepper with intoxicating floral heart of tuberose, violet, jasmine, patchouli and incense. The base beautifully cradles the fragrance with ambroxan, hedione and ISO-E Super molecules, and note poinciana tree known as "fire tree".
