(Last Updated On: September 25, 2017)
There’s no better way to kick off fall—the coziest of seasons—than with a new fragrance. We can pretty much all agree that Mother Nature has been in one hell of a mood lately (to say the least). And honestly, it’s making the always-brutal summer breakup with fresh florals and sunny citruses even harder to get over.
But there’s plenty to fall in love with this season, including a fresh batch of blends that’ll remind you of brighter days, a good cup of coffee, crisp fruits, and fresh autumn flowers. So while we’re layering, latte-ing it up, and getting into the groove of fall, find yourself a new fragrance fling—perhaps in one of these 11 new scents. We promise it will help hold you over until the next Summer Solstice.
Aerin Tuberose Le Soir Parfum Spray
The sensual side of a traditional floral fragrance is brought to life here through layers of vanilla, sandalwood, Ylang Ylang and the distinct richness of fully opened tuberose petals.

Arianna Grande Moonlight Eau de Parfum
The holographic bottle and oversized pom pom, pretty much encapsulate the sweetness of the black currant, plum and marshmallow inside. There’s also peony, sandalwood and black amber layered in, so that it’s not a complete sugar overdose.

Elizabeth & James Nirvana Amethyst & French Grey Parfum Sprays
Amethyst’s infusion of refined tobacco, sweet honeysuckle, cedar and spicy cedar wood is a good go-to when you’re feeling moody and mysterious.
On the opposite end, when you need a little head clearing, try French Grey, which is meant to transport you a light, open-air flower market with its hints of lavender, honeyed neroli and earthy musk.
