Life bottled: our autumn perfume rules

By Lauren Carbran

Important news, people! It’s autumn (so put away the sunscreen). And now you can start the new season on the right foot with our perfume rules. Yep, they’ll totally complete you – honest…

111. Know the new launches

It’s time to get in the know – but don’t worry, we’re here to help of course. First thing’s first – it’s all about SJP Stash and Chloé Fleur de Parfum for you girls this autumn. Stash – the new fragrance from Sarah Jessica Parker – makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside, thanks to the notes of pistachio and musk, and can we just talk about Fleur de Parfum? All you need to know is that it’s life-changing (and smells of roses and milky almonds). And for guys, gone are the days of ordinary. Say hello to your new autumn faves – Zadig & Voltaire This is Him! (grapefruit and black pepper) and Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Essence (bergamot and vanilla leather).

222. Go wild with your perfume

That’s right. Pledge your allegiance to the A/W16 catwalk trend of animal prints, which we’re obsessing over. From leopard prints to jaguar spots at Givenchy and Dolce & Gabbana, it’s clear that we’re be channelling our inner animals this season. And the same hype is surrounding perfumes. Wild meets chic with YSL Black Opium Wild for her (limited edition – so, grab it fast), which is the same juice as Black Opium (coffee and vanilla) but with a to-die-for leopard-print bottle. And for guys, opt for Lacoste Energized, which blends ginger and mint…oh, and it has a crocodile printed on it with world flags.

333. Get friendly with autumn notes

Know your autumn notes? Well, this season is all about vanilla and woody notes, according to fragrance expert, Michael Edwards. Find your perfect match with Michael Bublé By Invitation for her, which is an addictive mix of vanilla, praline and sandalwood. What more could a girl ask for? Next, we’d recommend the new Cartier L’Envol De Cartier for him for you oriental addicts. The combo of guaiac wood and honey are irresistible. We swear.
