Autumnal Fragrances to Wear all Year Long


Today we want to share some autumnal fragrances to wear all year long.  Warm temperatures are slowly making room for the colder ones and as soon we feel the slightest chill in the air we tend to reach for the comforting, warmer scents. Autumn fragrances are usually a bit more sweet or spicy, loaded with bergamot, amber and sandalwood and they usually have the staying power perfect for the chilly air. This does not mean these fragrances should stay untouched on your vanity table during the spring or summer. If you thought there are no fresh autumn fragrances that you could use on special occasions throughout the whole year, there most certainly are!

We’ve created a list of perfumes for women and men that will wonderfully complement the upcoming season but will also spice up your outfits on special evening occasions, no matter what the weather is.

The Best Autumn Perfumes for Women

Meet the top 3 fragrances for women that are composed of fruity and zesty notes accompanied in the base by decent comforting ingredients to warm you up during the rainy days.

Yves Saint Laurent Libre

YSL Libre is the timeless fragrance you’ve been looking for. The fragrance opens with the essence from France, dreamy lavender oil, that is beautifully combined with sensual and fresh Moroccan orange blossom in the heart of the scent. The warm twist in the base of the fragrance is composed of vanilla, musk and amber highlighted by woody notes of cedar.

Armani My Way

A floral woody fragrance My Way by Armani is a very contemporary scent that opens with citrus notes of bergamot and orange blossom, followed by tuberose flower that is sourced and hand-picked near Mysore, India. The Indian jasmine in the heart of the fragrance brings an enchanting aroma that will linger on your skin all day long. The white musk and cedar create an intoxicating drydown of the fragrance.

When the morning air is crisp and leaves are turning golden, but you are still into fresh summer scents, explore our list of top 3 perfumes for men that have an autumn twist on their zesty notes.

Mancera Cedrat Boise

A sunny fragrance that combines fresh citrus notes with wood, and leather to create a sensual yet playful composition. The perfume opens with a blend of Sicilian lemon and spices followed by an elegant heart composed of jasmine and patchouli leaves. The drydown is loaded with leather accords, vanilla and oakmoss to add that beautiful autumnal twist.

Azzaro Wanted By Night

Parfums De Marly Layton Royal Essence

If you love a little bit of luxury, meet this oriental fragrance suitable for both, men and women, that was inspired by the royal court at Versailles. Parfums De Marly Layton Royal Essence opens with fresh bergamot and tangerine aroma followed by a graceful heart of jasmine and geranium.

The Fragrance to Beat


Sure, everyone’s body chemistry is different, but ultimately, Thierry Mugler’s Alien perfume is still Thierry Mugler’s Alien perfume, which we can spot on that girl walking a mile away from us. Am I right, or am I right? Don’t get us wrong; we love Alien just as much as that girl walking by does, but even our most beloved perfumes see their days sometimes. We would be lying if we said we didn’t have those moments of wanting to find that scent that instantly notes the very essence of who we are as beauty lovers, females, and to put it simply, as women. If you’re wondering where you can find such a thing, look no further. Lately, the beauty industry has been shedding some light on the fragrances to beat: niche fragrances.

As we all know, we’re guilty of buying the same or similar scents of multiple body sprays, perfumes, and scented hand lotions than we know what to do with! It’s an addiction that, as beauty lovers, we can reason with just as much as we can with our ten different shades of nude lipsticks! (What? They’re not all the same.) However, at Cliché, we’re encouraging you to try something different—amazingly different—and we’re using the season of spring, the season to start anew, to go out on the edge not with your style or your makeup, but this time with your scent. That’s where niche fragrances come in.
Though experimenting with scents can be a little more difficult considering the sentimentality and sensitivity that the sense of smell can bring, the ideal of breaking our mold so that we don’t deprive ourselves of such a beautiful experience and enjoyable sensation is what’s so rewarding and refreshing. We deserve to find a scent that accentuates our souls—our inner beings that make us feel whatever and however it is we want to feel.

The up-and-coming category in the beauty industry is a fragrance-related term that is representative of alternative scents that are so diverse that, perhaps, the newness of such is what creates the originally off-putting smell. There are times where niche fragrances tend to focus on one particular scent, whereas most perfumes incorporate multiple notes in one perfume. However, niche fragrances are already proving to be equally as powerful, inviting, and wonderful as the favorite perfumes you have at home. In fact, niche fragrances are slowly becoming more popular with perfumery houses like Jo Malone making their way around the country. What’s particularly attractive about niche fragrances right now is their individualism, as their already unique scents blend with our body chemistry, making for an even more unique and in-distinguishable scent for every person.
Niche fragrances’ growing popularity can also be contributed to their presentation: no use of advertisement. There is simply the hard work of creating scents with timeless edge and sound reputation.
Niche fragrances can be found at your local Sephora store. Such brands include Ex Nihilo, Vilhelm Parfumerie, CLEAN, Nest, Atelier Cologne, and Juliette Has a Gun.
