Top-Notch November Fragrances3 min read
When it comes to perfume, we pay attention to scent trends, but we always stick to the notes we know and love….until now. A Scentbird subscription lets you explore scents before committing for the long-haul. So, bring on the new, now, and different. Cozy, luxurious and warm notes are our favorite smells for November .
Opulent, addictive and exclusive, our oud fascination continues this fall/winter. Characterized by a strong smoked woody scent, oud is quite masculine and works great for those days you need an extra boost of empowerment. Midnight Oud by Juliette Has A Gun is a study in balance, with a romantic rose note, Another Oud – by the same perfumer -flirts with a combination of oud and raspberry. Lovers of wood spiced with oriental notes will revel in Oud by John Varvatos. Varvatos’ scent pairs oud with saffron and leather. Minaudière Oud by Judith Leiber is a perfume that commands a room, thanks to the aromatic trio of vanilla orchid, plum and oud.
Although fruity accords are the norm come summer, there is something in the lingering tart yet honey-sweet aroma of crushed blackberries that make it the perfect pick-me-up for fall. La Nuit De Boheme by Anna Sui combines the best of two worlds berry-picking and forest-wandering through this decadent match. Vanille Blackberry by Comptoir Sud Pacifique places the fruity accord in the middle of the composition, surrounded by vanilla and fragrant pink berries. Signorina Misteriosa by Salvatore Ferragamo is straight-up sweetly delicious blackberry: the syrupy berry note is blended with a frothy vanilla mousse, with a dash of orange blossom and tuberose.
Which brings us to Tuberose, an intoxicatingly fragrant flower packed with sweet and sensual undertones. Perfumes created around tuberose bloom with mystery on the skin. They tend to have a “stronger” scent profile, making them a bold pick for cold winter weather. Tuberose note in Flora by Gucci Gracious Tuberose by Gucci composition is wet and ozonic, like a tuberose flower drenched in rain. Valentina Acqua Floreale by Valentino balances the potent floral aroma of tuberose with wild neroli, mimosa, while a touch of jasmine reigns supreme in this floral kingdom. The heart of Norell Elixir is a gorgeous fusion of white flowers: Indian tuberose, lush and seductive, combined with clean, clear and intense notes of Egyptian jasmine and pimento,Perfect for the upcoming holiday season, this scent is our pick for your pre-party spritz.
