Come autumn, our noses naturally gravitate towards grittier, layered scents that remind us more of cabins in the woods than dainty florals. You’ll love these new gender-neutral fragrances Christian Dior Bois d’argent, created by renowned perfumer François Demachy, echoes the crispness and versatility of a simple white shirt with its notes of sensual musk and smokey frankincense. Acqua di Parma Chinotto di Liguria, the latest from the fragrance house’s popular Blu Mediterraneo line, is as sensual as it is spicy, with hints of mandarin orange, chinotto, geranium and musk perfect for everyday wear. Chanel Les Eaux de Chanel ParisDeauville takes inspiration from Coco Chanel’s favourite seaside resort on France’s Côte Fleurie, boasting top notes of basil leaf, grain and orange rind over a base of jasmine and patchouli. IIUVO EDP Fonteyn, from the London fragrance house founded in 2015, is a tribute to the ballerina Margot Fonteyn and equally inspired by auteur Stanley Kubrick. Top notes of rosemary, wormwood and cardamom accompany a rich core of rose, blackcurrant and violet. Jo Malone’s Tropical Cherimoya Cologne packs a punchy first impression with its top notes of juicy pear and passion flower, before softening into the warmth of Brazilian copahu resin and creamy tonka bean. Byredo Eleventh Hour, an ultracomplex fragrance by the cult Swedish luxury house, explores the idea of “things ending, a journey to the end of time”, with zesty top notes of ban timmur and bergamot that descend into a base of rum, tonka beans and cashmere wood.
