TBH, I don’t really stick to seasonal beauty trends. Like, if I want to wear a deep red lipstick in the summer, I’m still going to do it, no matter how many people tell me it’s a “fall” color. But when it comes to perfume…I’m a firm believer that a scent has a time and a place, especially since each blend of notes is meant to evoke a specific mood. Like, it just doesn’t make sense to layer on a tropical scent in the middle of October, okay? And because I’m absolutely obsessed with perfumes, I sprayed, spritzed, and smelled dozens of scents to compile this list of the 10 best fall perfumes. Prepare to save this roundup for when it’s time to achieve peak fall vibes (think: creamy vanillas and warm leathers).

This Vanilla Fall Perfume
Jo Malone London Vetiver & Golden Vanilla Cologne Intense
Think of this fall perfume as the ~sophisticated~ version of the fragrance you wore in middle school. The vanilla notes are mixed with a blend of spicy cardamom and earthy vetiver to give you a strong, but not overwhelming, scent that lasts.
This Woody and Floral Fall Perfume
Givenchy L’Interdit Eau de Toilette
TBH, when I think of floral fragrances, I usually picture something my grandmother would wear. But trust me when I say this fall perfume is anything but boring. The top note of orange blossom pairs with the woody base notes to give you a scent that’ll immediately turn heads from the moment you walk in the room.
This Musky Fall Perfume
Tom Ford White Suede
This fall perfume is basically the feeling of slipping into freshly washed bed sheets on a chilly day all bottled up. Spritz it on to your pulse points and, once it settles, the woody, musky scent will give you warm and cozy vibes.
This Woody Fall Perfume
Atelier Cologne Santal Carmin Cologne Absolue
With a blend of woody, musky, and spicy notes on every single level, this fall perfume is so rich and deep, it’s almost like it’ll never fade. It’s bold—you can thank the bergamot, sandalwood, and saffron for that—but it still remains pretty soft. Think of it as the fragrance version of your black leather jacket.
This Fresh and Spicy Fall Perfume
Gucci Guilty Love Edition Pour Homme Eau de Toilette
In the mood for something light and fresh? This fall perfume is here to fulfill your wishes. The citrusy kumquat note mixes effortlessly with the lavender and patchouli notes to give you a refreshing (and non-headache inducing) twist on your classic spicy fragrance.
This Fruity Fall Perfume
Burberry Her Intense Eau de Parfum
Once you spritz on this fall perfume, you’ll immediately smell the fresh and fruity notes. Wait about a minute for the fragrance to get situated, and you’ll be left with a more-balanced scent for the rest of your day. It’s warm and a little dark but the top notes of blackberry and cherry make it playful and fun.
This Warm Fall Perfume
Aerin Amber Musk
The notes in this fall perfume seem like they would contradict each other (the milky coconut water and fresh rose is an interesting combo), but they come together to embrace your senses in a soft, warm hug. It’s long-lasting without being too fragrant, and it’ll instantly make you feel more relaxed from the moment you spray it on.
This Woody and Fruity Fall Perfume
Byredo Gypsy Water Eau De Parfum
Wearing this fall perfume is the closest I’ll ever get to going camping in the woods (sry, but I refuse). The pine needle notes ground you in a forest-inspired scent, while creamy sandalwood, fresh lemon, and fruity berries add a fullness to the fragrance.
This Floral Fall Perfume
Gucci Bloom Gocce di Fiori Eau de Toilette for Her
Even though I lean more towards heavy and dense fragrances, this sheer and light perfume is always in my rotation. The smell is just so pretty, thanks to the tuberose and jasmine notes at the top. True story: Once I sprayed this on before a night out, and even my Uber driver asked me why I smelled so good.
This Woody and Spicy Fall Perfume
Maison Margiela Replica Whispers In The Library
Imagine this: You’re snuggled on your couch in front of a warm fire with your boo. You’re reading a book of Claudia Rankine’s poems while they finish The Topeka School. There’s a faint smell of tobacco in the room. That’s what this fall perfume smells like. The mix of spicy pepper, woody cedar, and creamy vanilla melts right into your skin without being offensively fragrant, making it the perfect date-night perfume.
