Fall's Warmest Scents

Excerpts from a fragrance editorial, Warming Trend, in Allure Magazine October 2018, Best of Beauty Issue.

Warming Trend

Temper cooler temperatures with the sultriness of these new scents.

Givenchy L'Interdit


Its name is French for prohibited or forbidden. Like most verboten things, it's also temptingly inviting (lightly floral and sensually musky).

Woody Floral: orange blossom, tuberose, jasmine, vetiver, and patchouli
$110 @ Macy's

Gucci Bloom Nettare di Fiori Fragrance

Bloom Nettare di Fiori

The sexy, flowery powderiness of the original, just a notch more intense. Osmanthus and rose up the petal quotient, and ginger adds extra spice.

Floral Chypre: ginger, rose, patchouli, musks, osmanthus, rangoon creeper, jasmine and tuberose
$107 @ Sephora

Carolina Herrera Good Girl Velvet Fatale

Carolina Herrera
Good Girl Velvet Fatale

Collector Edition. A warm, softly sugary mix of cacao, tuberose, and jasmine. Quite possibly the best-smelling shoe ever.

Floriental: tuberose, jasmine sambac, almond, coffee, cocoa, and tonka bean
$122 @ Boscov's

Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Rouge

Narciso Rodriguez
Narciso Eau de Parfum Rouge

Musky, amber-y, and cedar-y, with a bit of rose and vetiver to break up the headiness. In short, a love letter to fancy-yet-bohemian women everywhere.

Woody Amber: iris, Bulgarian rose, musk, vetiver, amber, tonka, and cedar
$116 @ Bloomingdale's
