Fall Fragrance Trends

Traditional Fall fragrances are warm and spicy, like cinnamon and pumpkin. According to Debbie May of soap and candle supplier Wholesale Supplies Plus, the rising popularity of Farmer’s Markets and fresh fruit stands play a part in hot trends by many retailers. Look for fragrances based on fragrant herb and vegetable gardens. Some of these scents include tomato, cucumber, mints (eucalyptus, spearmint, peppermint), lemongrass and lavender.

According to Marie Claire magazine, new women’s fragrances are borrowing wood and musk notes from men’s fragrances. New Fall fragrance launches include Bvlgari Jasmin Noir, a woody floral fragrance, and Van Cleef & Arpels FĂ©erie, a blend of violets, blackcurrant, Bulgarian Rose, Egyptian Jasmine, and Iris Butter.

Vintage seems to be hot this Fall. This month signals the launch of Inverse, Kylie Minogue’s first fragrance for men. It is described as oriental inspired with vintage woody notes. Supermodel Kate Moss takes vintage one step further by calling her new fragrance Vintage. The fragrance, due out next month is described as a vintage inspired floriental.
