Fra­grance

Smell bet­ter than freshly fallen au­tumn leaves, plus Margot Rob­bie, Michael Kors and Lily Aldridge all talk per­fume.

this fall, don’t set­tle for just one scent. “A per­fume should show a cer­tain part of your per­son­al­ity de­pend­ing on how you feel,” says Mylène Al­ran, per­fumer for Bot­tega Veneta. This sea­son, ro­mance abounds in fra­grance. They say op­po­sites at­tract, which is why Al­ran added a woody base to the rose in Parco Pal­la­di­ano VI and why ve­tiver was added to the gour­mand hazel­nut in Mu­gler’s An­gel Muse. Flow­ers, the ul­ti­mate se­duc­tion tool, are in fra­grant heaps in Issey Miyake L’Eau D’Issey Pure (freesia, pe­ony and white lily) and Tom Ford Orchid Soleil (black orchid and tuberose). Look­ing to es­cape? Dior’s La Colle Noire trans­ports you to a pri­vate gar­den in France (where its flow­ers are har­vested), while the berg­amot and jas­mine in YSL’s Mon Paris takes you to Cal­abria, In­dia and China. Sen­su­al­ity comes through in the gin­ger­bread and “warm woods” in Serge Lutens’ Bap­tême du Feu and the he­liotrope and rasp­berry in Paco Ra­banne’s Lady Mil­lion Privé.
