Many who don’t like overpowering smell of other fragrances enjoy Cashmere because it’s subtle, mixing the smell of clean soap with warm cookies in the fall!

It’ll bring out the divine diva in you with its warm radiance and ethereal luster that will envelope you like a golden Haute Couture gown. The sensual fragrance is a fantastic rich fragrance, with a little going a long way. It’s considered a floral fragrance, but what makes it great for fall is that it’s not overpowering floral scents.

As the first fragrance from Proenza Schouler, you’ll fall in love with the blooming notes of this scent. It’s as if the Sonoran Desert of Arizona was perfectly packaged in a bottle, gifting its users a feeling of adventure with every spray. The scent is inspired by the ridges and ravines that define the Arizona desert. Every drop encapsulates the mysterious scents that Mother Nature provides. The innovative fragrance features cactus flower notes and creamy orris accord. The perfume was inspired by Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough’s travels, thus embodying the designers’ love for taking contrasting elements and combining them into one fantastic scent. Instead of making it super floral, the designers’ wanted to make it real – what a flower would smell like in their ideal world. To make this wish become a reality, they went with a dry, solar, mineral-rich scent that’s low on fruity notes. You’ll also find notes of jasmine, orange blossom, musk, cashmeran and solar accord. It feels warm and breezy on your skin, creating a unisex scent that’s not over the top with sugary or tropical implications.

As her first fragrance in partnership with Coty Inc., it’s something Carrie from “Sex and the City” would definitely wear as soon as the first fall leave appears in her beloved NYC. For her first scent, Paker wanted something instantly recognizable and not overpowering. The result is a soft, discrete and powdery fragrance that features silky white amber. It’s a classic fragrance that is modern and charming. It’s intimate and welcoming, making it easy to wear all through fall and winter. The scent opens with citrus and woody notes, throwing in a touch of lavender. It develops more with notes of orchid, white daffodil and apple martini, while the base unites cedar, white amber, white musk and woody notes.
This intoxicating fragrance is inspired by the fig tree in a Greek summer. It’s so refreshingly delightful that anyone can create their own story while wearing it. All parts of the fig tree are captured at various stages of development in this alluring fragrance. Top notes include green fruit and leaves from the fig tree, while middle notes include fig tree wood and milky sap. The base notes bring it all together with its musk and white cedar.
