My Favorite Fall Fragrances
It's finally that gorgeous time of year when the leaves begin to turn, the air becomes delightfully crisp and your favorite scarf and boot combo come out of retirement. It's that amazing transition of tastes, textures and aromas that get us in the mood for all things warm, luscious and cozy. Unfortunately in recent years we've all witnessed the condemning of everything pumpkin spice related, deeming it the ultimate "basic becky" delight. But all social media induced ridiculousness aside, you're pretty on point if you too enjoy the decadent notes and aromas of what is associated with what we generally know as pumpkin spice.
Drop the word "pumpkin" and you're simply left with "spice". Spices are dried seeds, fruits, root or bark necessary in flavoring, coloring and other preservation purposes. Distinct spices like cinnamon, clove, cardamom, saffron and vanilla are better recognized for their aromatic purposes more prevalent in autumnal/ winter seasonal recipes and fragrances. Come october, most of us trade in our fresh, citrusy Acqua Di Gioia and Dolce & Gabanna Light Blue for richer, deeper, creamier scents. Here are some of my favorite fragrances that accurately complement my favorite time of year. Leave some of your all-time favorites in the comments below. See something you like?
