What is that certain scent that reminds you of the best time of year (AKA fall)? Cinnamon, musk, pine, or cedar? Or, maybe you’re more of a florals-year-round person? Whatever your preferred scent for the season, we’ve got you covered. This article highlights eight of the best fall perfumes of all time.
Half Hoping to be Eaten by a Bear by Death and Floral

Fenty by Fenty
Fenty’s first drop of Fenty sold out completely—and for good reason, too. This is Rihanna’s expression of who she is, “this exudes everything I feel, everything I am, and everything I want to be.” It’s seductive and tantalizing, a musky and elegant floral perfume. Fenty Fenty has notes of tangerine, blueberry, Bulgarian rose, geranium, magnolia, musk and patchouli. Another fall perfume from 2021 that hits the mark.
Twilly d'Hermes Eau Ginger by Hermes
