9 New Fragrances To Try This Autumn

If you're into smells, you'll have noticed the constant stream of scent launches and the ever-expanding celebrity perfume lines of late – believe me, as a beauty editor my desk is buckling under the weight of bottles – but the past few months have offered us a number of particularly refreshing releases to get excited about.

As autumn arrives, it's out with the fresh and zesty scents and in with something woodier or warmer. Earlier this month, Louis Vuitton released its first perfume in 70 years and Charlotte Tilbury added to her fast-growing product range with the sultry Scent of a Dream.

For Christian Louboutin's first foray into fragrance, the shoe designer created three scents which embody three unique scent personalities: heat of the night, provocation, and desire, while Christian Dior added to an already impressive fragrance collection with Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming in August.

This year, Byredo celebrates its 10th birthday, founded a decade ago by basketball player turned perfumer Ben Gorham. The brand is now cult, adored by those looking for something a little more niche and individual than more mainstream scent options.

In celebration of the big anniversary, Ben decided to propose a nameless fragrance that leaves everyone free to create their own interpretation with no semantic boundaries. The unisex fragrance fuses pink pepper and gin, orris stem and lush violets with a base of tree mosses and fir.

For the fresh new fragrance, the brand tapped an equally cool, fresh face, 17-year-old Lily-Rose Depp who's already fronted an eyewear campaign for the French fashion house.

Chloë Grace Moretz, who has modelled in Coach campaigns since early 2015, returns to her role at the heritage brand to front the new fragrance launch, stating: "To me, this perfume is everything I love about Coach.

001 is Loewe's first fragrance under the creative direction of Jonathan Anderson. Rooted in the fresh, multi-faceted identity Anderson has built for the Spanish fashion house since 2014, 001 represents the sensory expression of a character that's both identifiable and novel.

"This is a very personal project for me," Anderson explains. "I spent a lot of time working on it because it's something I really believe in. Above all, I wanted the fragrance to feel credible, an organic extension of what Loewe stands for today."

Woman mixes tangerine and bergamot with a sandalwood middle section and lower hints of jasmine and vanilla. Man combines the same top and core notes with undertones of cedar and musk. These new wearable scents are an elegant everyday perfume.
