10 New Fragrances You’re Sure to Fall in Love With
A seasonal shift from summer to fall calls for a fragrance that’s warm, earthy and downright sexy. Here are 10 new fragrances you’ll fall in love with
Marc Jacobs Decadence
The MJ-inspired handbag bottle is enough to make Decadence a must-have. Luckily, the new fragrance inside is just as lust-worthy. This sensual woody scent has top notes of Italian plum, iris and saffron; heart notes of Bulgarian rose, jasmine sambac and orris; and is anchored by base notes of sexy liquid amber, earthy vetiver and papyrus woods.
50 mL, $115; 100 mL, $140 at Hudson’s Bay, Sephora, Murale and Shoppers Drug Mart
This “effortless and sexy” new fragrance opens with top notes of bergamot, lime, cedar leaf and lavendin, followed by mimosa, jasmine and guaiacwood. Base notes of tonka bean, musk and sandalwood round out the scent. Imagine each spritz as a soft hug in cashmere.
30 mL, $44; 60 mL, $79 at Murale and Sephora
Eternity Now Calvin Klein
With real-life model couple Jasmine Tookes and Tobias Sorensen starring in the advertising campaign (check out the sexy black and white campaign video, here), the chemistry of this fragrance is undeniable. In keeping with the brand’s heritage of florals, Eternity Now opens with fresh nectarine, lychee and quince sorbet, followed by a floral bouquet of peony, peach blossom and neroli petals. Over time, dry notes of cashmere veil and musk are revealed.
50 mL, $78; 100 mL $98 at Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart and Jean Coutu
Alien 10th Anniversary Talisman Eau de Parfum Limited Edition
Although this is the same beloved amber-woody-floral fragrance, we had to include it for its limited edition Talisman bottle (in a spectacular amethyst-hue, we might add).
40 mL, $98 at Hudson’s Bay
Miu Miu Eau de Parfum
As it should, the first fragrance from the Italian design house embodies the contradictory Miu Miu women: intelligently frivolous, fearlessly fun, seriously light-hearted, feminine feminists. Soft, floral top notes of lily of the valley, jasmine and rose are set against a deep, earthy base of Akigalawood, an extract of patchouli.
50 mL, $95; 100 mL, $135 at Holt Renfrew
Tory Burch Absolu
This variation of the designer’s signature scent is bolder and more sophisticated. Vibrant top notes of black currant buds, pink pepper and lily of the valley lead to a heart of florals (rose, tuberose and jasmine sambac). The base offers intense refinement with a balance of earthy sandalwood, vetiver and cedarwood with warm vanilla.
1.7 oz, $100; 3.4 oz, $130 at Sephora and Tory Burch
Nina Ricci L’Extase Eau de Parfum
This ultra-feminine new fragrance from Nina Ricci is a heady blend of rose and musk for a sensual experience that invites women to embrace eroticism. After all, l’extase is French for ecstasy. Check out the campaign video, here.
50 mL, $95
Michael Kors Gold Collection
There’s nothing that embodies the luxe glamour of the Michael Kors woman better than gold, reads the fragrance collection’s press release. White Luminous Gold is an “intoxicating burst of pear, jasmine and amber,” 24K Brilliant Gold features “orange mandarin, voluptuous florals and a rousing spark of woodiness,” and Rose Radiant Gold “entices with a spotlight on sparkling fruits, textured with a charming femininity of rich florals and soft musks.”
1.0 oz, $58; 1.7 oz, $80; 3.4 oz, $100 at Michael Kors
Burberry My Burberry Eau de Toilette
This eau de toilette from Burberry is a fresh interpretation of the brand’s iconic Eau de Parfum. It’s heavy on florals with top notes of lemon flower and sweet pea, heart notes of peony, peach flower and freesia and base notes of damask rose and musk. Call it “A Bright Spring London Garden!”
50 mL, $80; 90 mL, $112 at Hudson’s Bay, Sephora, Shoppers Drug Mart, Murale, Jean Coutu and Burberry Boutiques
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium
This addictive fragrance awakens your senses thanks to opening notes of adrenaline-rich coffee accord and vanilla, followed by orange blossom, cedar wood and patchouli.
1.6 oz, $89; 3 oz, $118 at Hudson’s Bay and Sephora
