Texas weather, as mentioned in previous entries, is bipolar. Some days it decides to be cool and normal fall-approaching-winter weather and others, it decides to be 90 degrees outside. It’s quite frustrating having to switch gears from summer to winter every few days. This includes my perfumes. My fall and winter perfumes consists of darker, warmer, woodier notes, but also more fun, “foody” fragrances that consist of vanilla and light musk that remind me of dessert. Indulgent, sugar-coated scents also help remind me that the holidays and new year are coming soon. These are my favorites:
Stella McCartney Stella Perfume $20-$92
– My personal favorite. A sophisticated fresh rose scent mixed with peonies and mandarin with dark amber for a feminine touch. I love the base notes and finish of this perfume.
Tokyo Milk Let Them Eat Cake No. 11 Parfum $28
– I adore the name of this perfume and it perfectly defines what is in the bottle. A decadent, young fragrance with notes of sugar cane, vanilla orchid, and coconut milk to give it some creaminess. White musk helps round out the fragrance and keep it from smelling too young. Smells less synthetic than Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar.
Bath & Body Works Twilight Woods Eau de Toilette $29.50
– An already-popular fragrance for the cooler months starting out with sweet top notes of berry and mandarin, middle notes of sweet mimosa and freesia, finished with vanilla and woody, musky base notes.
LAVANILLA Pure Vanilla Eau de Parfum $16-$58
– Pure Vanilla? No, but the Madagascar vanilla is enhanced with tonka bean and patchouli for a rich, warm vanilla that’s not artificial-smelling or too sweet.
