Scents are such a powerful player when it comes to how I feel, and for some reason in the Autumn more than any other season. It’s a time of year with lots of visual change and with that comes new smells – bonfires, damp leaves and crisp mornings – all which have such strong memories attached to them.

I’ve been trying out new scents as of late and these have been the ones that stood out to me and I can imagine wearing in the cooler months – either to transport me to sunnier times or to snuggle up in a jumper with.

Commodity Book
woody yet crisp, it really does make me think of being curled up inside in a chalet, fire roaring and blanket wrapped around me – and reading a book, of course. HERE

Sana Jardin Revolution de la Fleur
not just the world’s first conscious luxury fragrance brand, but the scents are all incredible soon. I chose this one for it’s ylang ylang, jasmine and sandal wood. HERE

Le Labo Lys 41
after trying all the scents in the shop (yes, really), I decided on this one. The mix of tuberose, lily and jasmine make the perfect autumn scent for me. HERE

Chanel Paris Venise
out of the three new Chanel scents centred around escapism, this one was my favourite. It’s a feminine scent – which is unusual for me – but it’s not sickly. And since I visited Venice for the first time this summer it seems the perfect way to remember a wonderful trip. HERE

Escentric Molecules molecule 04
designed to meld with your natural pheromones, each of the Escentric Molecule scents focuses on a single ingredient rather than a mix. 04 is all about the molecule Javanol which is derived from sandalwood, so has a subtle woody note which I love in autumn. HERE

Frederic Malle Carnal Flower hair mist
yes, really, to be worn in your hair. I love the idea of wearing scent in your hair as not only does it stay for longer but it also doesn’t aid in skin damage from the sun (which wearing perfume can do). Carnal Flower is a modern tuberose scent, and one of my favourites. HERE
