5 Summer-to-Fall Fragrances to Try Now4 min read
Transitioning from summer to fall can be tricky, especially in the fragrance department. It’s still sunny and warm so the oriental scents don’t feel quite right yet, but you’ll need something beside citrus and aquatic notes when the temperature drops. We’re rounded up our fave transitional fragrances to see you into next season now.
Unique and inviting, Black Tulip is as resplendent as the works by 18th century British artist Mary Delany, that inspired Nest perfumers.
Powdery, floral and gently spiced up, it’s the perfect fragrance to greet the changing weather. The unison of plum and violet is playful, but patchouli emboldened by pink pepper is what makes Black Tulip an amazing scent that can straddle two seasons.
The traditional neroli-themed eau de cologne has been reworked with sweet almond to create a chic, contemporary scent. Gentlewoman’s citruses complement the wearer in warm or cool temps – trust us!
This Juliette Has A Gun signature boasts top notes of bitter orange, bergamot and neroli, which is about summery as it gets to be honest, but it’s the alluring mix of almond essence, musk and wood that earns Gentlewoman a place on our list.
Breakfast in bed on a lazy Sunday morning with a new novel and a delish cup of coffee sounds pretty perfect, but not as perfect as Montale’s Intense Cafe.
Roast coffee beans, vanilla and rose mix it up with warm amber and musk. Equally popular with both women and men, this is fragrance is truly addicting. Add it to your queue for you – and him!
With Mojave, Abbott NYC heads way out West, embracing the dry heat of the desert.
Dry and spicy, this fragrance masterfully incorporates a subtle freshness, thanks to a dash of bergamot. Tingly black pepper bolstered by tobacco leaf give this androgynous number a unique, earthy vibe.
Soft and sensual, Cashmere Mist is the perfect antidote to this insanely hot summer. Cashmere woods blended with with suede are reworked with musk and vanilla.
Casual for everyday office wear, yet sophisticated enough for a black-tie occasions, Cashmere Mist is one of Donna Karan’s most popular perfumes – 20 years strong.
