We've rounded up the best perfumes to try this autumn, from Mikimoto's first fragrance, Kenzo's iconic collection for its 20th birthday to Louis Vuitton's compact scent conquering new olfactory territories.
1/8 Tom Ford Bitter Peach
Tom Ford Bitter Peach is the latest in the Private Blend fragrance line––a lavish mix of fruit and floral complete with a bottle designed in exquisite detail. Tom Ford describes the fragrance as "explicitly sweet and dangerously voluptuous" offering an exploration of worlds both sweet and seductive. The 50mL bottle is designed with an opaque inner lacquering and a tinted translucent outer layer to provide depth and dimension.
2/8 Gucci Bloom Profumo di Fiori
The new fragrance from Gucci champions the fresh natural greenness, rich floral quality and creamy depth of Tuberose blended with Arabian jasmine closed buds and absolute for direct expression. It offers a radiant twist on the magnificent white floral signature of Bloom Eau de Parfum. The bottle's design revisits the original Gucci Bloom pattern and is presented in a lacquered square-shaped bottle adorned with the Gucci label ribbed and framed in black.
3/8 Chloé Rose Tangerine
Chloé revisits its signature Eau de Toilette with its newest Rose Tangerine scent. The unique rose note takes on an expectedly fruit-inspired twist, taking the sunny essence of tangerine and combining it with the vivid blackcurrant with verdant undertones to reinforce character and white amber for ultra-contemporary elegance. The bottle features new colours with an orange-pink Grosgrain ribbon to match the scent.
4/8 Louis Vuitton Météore
The sixth Louis Vuitton Parfums composition is crafted by the House's Master Perfumer, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud aiming to capture and contain intense luminosity in a bottle. Using the freshest of citruses, Calabrian bergamot, mandarin, and Sicilian orange––Météore is born. For the signature touch, a scent of Java vetiver is added as a final stroke of sophistication.
5/8 Mikimoto Eau de Parfum
Mikimoto's first fragrance Eau de Parfum is inspired by the natural and cultural heritage of Japan and the majestic presence of the sea where the jeweller's signature pearls come from. Eau de Parfum is an embodiment of the brand's philosophy to pursue coexistence with nature. Boasting a combination of floating iris and magnolia, the top note is a rendition of the subtle smell of the cool sea breeze combined with fresh citrus notes such as grapefruits, orange bigarade, Sicilian lemon, and bergamot. The bottle is a minimalist expression of the brand––a pearl-shaped shell stripped down within a square.
6/8 Flower By Kenzo Eau de Parfum
The Flower By Kenzo collection was imagined as a fusion between city and nature, and a nod to founder Kenzo Takeda's Paris-Tokyo connection. The latest powdery floral fragrance celebrates the 20th birthday of the collection line, a year considered significant in Japan as the young enter adulthood in a traditional coming-of-age ceremony. Master Perfume Alberto Morillas created the fragrance of a poppy––a flower of no aroma of its own and conjured an imaginary scent.
7/8 Christian Dior Jasmin des Anges
Dior perfumer-creator, François Demachy describes Jasmin des Anges as a "tribute to late summer" and serves a floral-fruity invitation with aromas of almost-candied apricots that is reminiscent of his visits to the Grasse flower fields in early autumn when the air is filled with flowers' fruity scent. Autumn is when the last jasmine flowers are harvested which makes Jasmin des Anges a delectable perfume similar to a floral liqueur.
8/8 Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Flowers of Happiness
Wondering what happiness smells like? Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Flowers of Happiness is all things happy encapsulated in a fragrance. This bundle of joy is a perfect blend of four flowers––peony, rose, jasmine, and Lily of Valley which all embody happy emotions. The resplendent bottle evokes the outline of a smile and true to its name is called "le sourire de cristal" or "the crystal smile". As a finishing touch, a pearlescent grey organza ribbon is wrapped around the neck signifying wings of freedom.
