The woody fine fragrance revival has begun. So to celebrate, here are the most luxurious (and seriously addictive) autumnal scents that will see you through the season in style…

Elie Saab Le Parfum Royal Eau de Parfum

Introducing Elie Saab’s fresh take on the woody trend. Oozing Indian sandalwood and bergamot, it’s heady and zesty all at the same time. Then there’s the head-swivelling trio of Lebanese neroli, Turkish rose, Bulgarian rose that really stand out, transporting you to warmer climes immediately. Spray this liberally whenever you please this autumn – the good news is it will never smell overpowering.



Laboratorio Olfattivo Cozumel Eau de Parfum

Forget everything you’ve previously heard about woody scents because this fine fragrance rips up the rulebook. Wild, aromatic and spicy, Cozumel combines sandalwood and cedarwood with basil, clary sage, tobacco and Indian hemp. The overall effect? The most sensual blend, perfect for sporting when you want to smell fiery and free-spirited. It might be labelled as a male fragrance, but this is easily a unisex pick in our eyes.


Parfums de Marly Delina Eau de Parfum

Proving that woody perfumes can be sweet and delicate too, Delina is your bespoke potion for autumn. Oozing cashmere wood (a musky take on wood), peony, rhubarb and vanilla, wear this for those glamorous and sophisticated dress codes. We can’t think of anything better to stand out in this season. Dreamy!




Parfums Frapin 1270 Eau de Parfum

A woody-gourmand fine fragrance that whets your appetite? Yes please. We could go on about this perfume for days, but what you really need to know is that it truly treats the senses. Boasting a deep base of guaiac wood and precious woods that really stick around, it also mixes cocoa, candied orange, raisins and white honey. Naturally uplifting and energetic, spritz this on those grey, windy autumn days that require a pick-me-up.  



BDK Parfums Oud Abramad Eau de Parfum

Autumn is simply a spritz away. Meet the soothing woody scent that promises to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Oud Abramad is as rich and cosy as it sounds, courtesy of agarwood, guaiac wood, ginger and cumin accords. For maximum impact, spritz this onto your statement high neck jumper for the smell to follow you wherever you go. Mmmm, bliss!  



On the lookout for a zen, woody candle?

Saint Fragrance London Powdery Skies is the epitome of autumn. Infused with warm cedarwood, refreshing white tea and punchy ginger, it’s just the thing to unwind and cosy up to on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Housed in a minimalist matte grey container, you’ll love how chic this looks on your coffee table.
