Fall Favorites and a Prize Draw

The Weather Channel harbingers showers for NY and New England, rain and storms for TX and OK, snow across parts of the Midwest...clearly, it's time for the 2009 installment of our Fall Fragrance Hitparade. As usual, each of us chooses the most-enjoyed scent of the season; please join us in your comments and let us know, which perfume have you been reaching for the most this Autumn.

Alyssa
Féminité du Bois EDP by Shiseido (original version)
Ah, Féminité du Bois, where have you been all my life, you gorgeous, grown up spicy little cedar-violet plum? What’s that you say? Sitting unloved in the back of my closet while I wore Bois de Paradis and Bois de Violette and Black Cashmere and half a dozen other things related to you, but not you, you, you, because I thought you were too rough, too much, too strange? Je suis désolé, mon amour, j’étais un imbécile.

Beth
Patchouli 24 by Le Labo
I have fallen madly in love with Le Labo’s Patchouli 24 and well if I’m going to be honest it’s actually become a bit of a personal obsession! Patchouli 24 is a smoky, sap filled passionate romp in the fall leaves mixed with just a touch of salty, leathery sweat and when I wear it I feel incredibly witchy and wantonly sexy.........

Donna
Jean-Louis Scherrer
Jean-Louis Scherrer, the original eponymous scent from 1979, has come back into my life just in time for cooler weather. My "new" vintage bottle (the current version is still wonderful) of this tenacious green chypre with its gorgeous heart of white florals and hyacinth and great walloping doses of civet, real oakmoss and vetiver that makes it last just about forever on skin makes me wonder why I ever stopped wearing it, but I won't make that mistake again.

Linda
Luctor et Emergo by People of the Labyrinths
I keep coming back to People of the Labyrinths' Luctor et Emergo this fall. Its woody, creamy opening makes me think of piles of fallen leaves, neat stacks of freshly cut firewood, and something homey -- a vanilla custard pie with an almond crust -- baking in the oven: everything that takes a chill off the thrilling October air.

Marian
Prince Diamini by Arabian Oud
Prince Diamini - an intoxicating blend of wild roses, smoldering oud, piquant spices and golden ambergris- a glowing embrace that coaxes helpless surrender.

Marina
Acqua Fiorentina by Creed
This autumn I cling to the memories of summer, of Atlantic ocean, dunes and the sun, to the feeling of warmth, completeness and content. The fresh, tangy and sweet Acqua Fiorentina brings me back to that happy place. Amazingly, for such a diaphanous creation, the scent stands up very well to the chill of fall. It must be the rounded fruitiness of the plum note, which gives this otherwise summery composition a certain autumnal depth and robustness.

Marla
Anarchy by Irma Shorell
For me it's been Irma Shorell's Anarchy, a remake of Donna Karan's Chaos. It's a warm, spicy labdanum and incense perfume, and nothing's cozier than labdanum on a chilly autumn morning!

Tom
Fumerie Turque by Serge Lutens
This fall I've found myself reaching more and more for Serge Lutens' Fumerie Turque; its languid smokiness is as warming on a cool evening as a steaming cup of tea.

If you would like to participate in a prize draw for a set of 10 autumnal samples (Marina's choice, including some of the scents on this list...maybe...let me surprise you)...say so in your comment. The winner will be chosen at random and announced next week. The draw is now closed.

Don't forget to find out what are the Fall Favorites on Bois de Jasmin, Grain de Musc, Now Smell This and Perfume Posse.

Definitely Beth and Alyssa seem to be on the same page as me! Féminité du Bois is a staple this fall, despite its difficulty it's become my default choice these days...
No need to include me in the draw, I'm drowning in samples!
And Marina: bravo for the news I've just learned!

I really like these favourites list.
Right now I have been wearing Ormonde Woman constantly. I was quite intimidated to try it first (all the reviews make it sound gorgeous, but scary at the same time). However, I love it! It just seems perfect, one of those perfumes where I don't analize the notes but just enjoy its beauty.
Please enter me in the draw. Thank you, Klara

I love hearing about what others are wearing, and why. This fall, I am wearing L'Artisan Parfumeur Timbuktu: very dry & woody on me, with just a bit of cardamom and patchouli. I think patchouli is not very popular right now; people on the blogs seem to prefer fruity frags, but I love it. For going out, say, to the symphony: vintage Norell. Please enter me in the drawing--thanks!

Love these top ten lists. So fun to see what everyone else is obsessing over. I'm with you, Marina. Somehow, I'm gravitating toward lighter, fun scents to cut through the heaviness. Wore Juicy Couture yesterday, and it made me so happy! Thinking of breaking some EdC's out of my summer stash. And to think I was missing those fall scents. Hmmm...what happened? ;-)

7:38 AM EDT  
Blogger Audit Diva said...

It's spring now Down Under so I can't really think of a favourite autumn fragrance - if I think back to May/June when it was getting colder, I was mostly wearing Very Irresistible by Givenchy and Nina by Nina Ricci.

Yes please count me in for the draw! :)

7:54 AM EDT  
Blogger Mals86 said...

Fall is my favorite time of year as well.

Thanks for the list! Over the last couple of weeks, I've been wearing Voile de Fleur, Ta'if, and the last dregs of SSS Tabac Aurea from my sample vial.

Fall is my favorite season - a brief time that I treasure every year. It's so fleeting, and so gorgeous.

One of my fall favorites is Burning Leaves by CB I Hate Perfume. It's also one of my husband's favorites among my fragrances.

I'd love to be included in the draw! This fall, I've become the total Serge Lutens slutbunny. I have been bathing (well, almost) in Fleurs d'Oranger, which was glorious in summer and no less so in cooler weather. Most of all, I'm looking forward to wearing Chéne, to me the smell of an otherworldly autumn in some other, parallel world.

Our weather has been so mixed that I can't settle on anything. (Or perhaps my brain has been so addled.. one or the other..) In my head, I'd be wearing CdG Zagorsk and other woodsy, incense-y delights but then there's a day with afternoon temperatures in the mid-70's. Or something lighter, only to have frost on the ground when the day starts. MH Fueilles de Tabac has been a reasonable compromise on some days.

Nice list! I have to smell Luctor again - it is all fusty attic on me. But everyone seems to love it so.

I just got MPG Rose Muskissime and I can tell I will be wearing it a lot. It's nice for those in-between days we get in S.F. My next purchase for fall will possibly be Farmacia ss Annunziata's Aurora - nicely spiced without sugar.

Just a hint of autumn is what it takes for my hand to reach to Ormonde Woman and to Ta'if, and I'm glad to see that I'm not alone. I also see that I'm not alone with Acqua Fiorentina or even with Voleur des Roses, and Feminite du Bois is, as Carmen says, a staple, and Vanisia works wonders on my mood, as do Tabac Blond and Lumiere Noire, but I'm sure I'll be all alone for having a secret passion for Un Bois Vanille by Serge Lutens.

After a year and a half down the perfumed rabbit hole, I still have smelled so little! I've only smelled Luctor et Emergo from this list and man, it did not please me. Play-doh, not really. Cherry cough syrup? Unfortunately.

This autumn will see me finishing my sample of Rue Cambon. It may be soulless (it smells like a small, ornate frame with nothing in it; that's how I "see" it)and pulling out my Brin de Reglisse. I put it away and have a sinking feeling I've grown apart from it. I still have a half-full bottle so I'll blame the weather! And Eau Premiere, which is so silky smooth, like cashmere. =D

Back from a fall in nature week end, I just discover your really nice blog and this intriguing list. For me De Nicolai's Baladin is just perfect right now...But I also hear the call of Lutens Un Bois oriental from time to time. Please enter me in the draw.

All of my Lutens have come out to play now that fall has shown it's colorful face. Cedre', Ambre Sultan, Serge Noir, and a couple other new faves. I also agree it's perfectly time for Chaos, and all the incenses to start up again. And as parties start up so will my Ormand Woman; yum! I'd love to see the samples you pick!

My current fall favourite is Douce Amere - it has the same effect on me as wearing a cashmere sweater - I feel comforted yet sophisticated. Please enter me in the draw.

Fantastic list! I'm also loving POTL, as well as many SLs this fall. I would love to be included in the drawing!
