Oh-so-feminine and with timeless appeal, a floral fragrance should always be in your beauty bag. Whether you opt for a sweet scent or choose to harness the deeper, more seductive power of petals, it’s time to treat your nose to the best blooms in a bottle. Read on to discover Savoir Flair’s five favorite floral fragrances for fall.
Acqua di Parma 'Peonia Nobile'
Pure peony perfection, Acqua di Parma’s stunning new fragrance blends fruity and floral notes to make for a delicate, sweet scent. Peonies picked from the northern hills of Italy are blended with vibrant black pepper, sweet raspberry, delicate Turkish rose as well as a subtle hint of patchouli and musk. You’ll love the fresh and feminine scent it creates.
Chloé 'Fleur de Parfum'
While describing Chloé’s new scent in her recent interview with Savoir Flair, Dree Hemingway compared it to “a delicate bouquet of flowers”. Seeking to bring out a different and unique facet of the rose, it is illuminated with verbena and softened with cherry blossom, resulting in an elegant and modern floral must-have.
Tom Ford 'Orchid Soleil'
Capturing Tom Ford’s original obsession with the mysterious and magical black orchid, this perfume is as sexy and sassy as ever. Top notes of fiery pink peppercorn and fresh cypress blend beautifully with a heart of tuberose petals and spider lily, whilst at its base lies creamy chestnut, seductive vanilla, patchouli, and – of course – black orchid. The Art Deco, rose-gold bottle is an added bonus.
Comptoir Sud Pacifique 'Musc & Roses'
Created by the brand’s founder Valérie Pianelli, this feminine fragrance was inspired by the roses in the garden of her Sicilian holiday home. “I wanted to breathe in the scent of a delicate armful of rose petals brushed by the morning dew, and then warmed by the first rays of sunlight,” she explains. She has managed to capture that moment perfectly by blending May roses, musk, vanilla, and a touch of green apple to create a floral scent that’s both bright and modern, impertinent and original.
Drawing inspiration from traditional Indian-wedding ceremonies, during which flower heads are strung into giant garlands and exchanged between the bride and groom while they’re showered with petals for spiritual protection, this beautiful perfume is a veritable floral explosion. Rose petals, wild jasmine sambac, dewy tuberose, and angelica seeds are given a subtle, fresh finish thanks to crisp Sicilian lemon and Swedish lingonberry, while seductive notes of suede and amber create its base.
