The Best Women’s Perfumes For Fall & Winter 2020
What Perfume’s Are Best For Fall?
Fall/Winter 2019 is just around the corner, the leaves will be changing colors and you will be changing the perfumes you wear. In this article, I will give you a list of the best women’s perfumes for fall 2020. The grueling heat of summer weather is finally over, and you can wear your cold weather perfumes that have been waiting on your shelves for months.
Some of the perfect notes for the fall time are things that give off a wood, spicy, or even floral aromas. These are the type of perfumes that are more earthy and natural than what you would typically wear during summer. You want something that just gives off a cozy vibe that you can just smell and it takes you for a beautiful walk in nature.
But what if you love perfume made for summer? Wearing a perfume that is typically for warmer weather is a totally fine thing to do. The only problem is the strength of the fragrance is not made for the colder weather. This will require you to spray more onto yourself than you would during the spring/summer.
I personally like the aroma that cold weather scents give off and I couldn’t imagine wearing something like Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue during freezing cold winters. But, everyone has their own tastes and whatever you feel works for you and your style and personality, I agree with going for it 100%.
What Is Weather Like In Your Area?
Depending on what fall/winter is like in your area, you have to look at different fragrances. Places in the United States like Florida, Texas, and Arizona have fall seasons that are still very hot. These places need to be treated almost the same as what you would wear during the summer, with maybe a little more focused on wood notes.
Some places are very cold, requiring you to wear perfumes that are powerful like Tom Ford Tuscan Leather. Perfumes are always based on a variety of circumstances, find out what works best for you.
The Top 7 Fall Perfumes for 2020
These are what I think are the best women’s perfumes for fall 2020. The list isn’t in any sort of order from worst to best, so keep that in mind. I love all of these perfumes equally. What’s your favorite perfume for fall?
7. Donna by Valentino
Whenever I recommend this perfume to someone the first thing they tell me is “this smells expensive”. Donna by Valentino has a vintage style to it that still works in our modern life. The 6 and only notes of this perfume work together to create a perfume for the classy and casual women looking to make this fall season her best yet. Rose, iris, vanilla, leather, patchouli, and bergamot are the notes that are blended to perfection by the perfumer Sonia Constant.
This perfume is more complex than you would think with these limited ingredients. Its layers of fragrance take you on a journey from start to finish with the last notes being vanilla and luxurious leather.
The performance of this perfume is probably one of the best I have seen in recent years. You will have no problem smelling this perfume after a full 24 hours of wear. The projection will take some adjusting to get it to the perfect amount you want. If you wear this in a warmer climate it will be very strong.
6. Burberry Brit Rhythm by Burberry
Give off a distinctly British vibe by spraying on a bit of Burberry Brit Rhythm. The perfume inspired by the fun and excitement you get from a live concert. Its aromatic profile starts with an English lavender note and a strong pink pepper note to create a scent that’s both fun and enticing.
Blackberry leaves help round out this fragrance, giving it a full profile, and the orange blossom note adds a bit of warmth. Released by Burberry in 2014, this fragrance is great for either day or night whenever you want to try something that’s more fun or exciting than the usual perfumes you wear.
The performance is great and the longevity will last you over 12 hours no problem. The projection is the perfect amount for the fall weather and will gain you compliments regularly.
5. La Vie Est Belle by Lancome
This has been continuously recommended for years ever since its release in 2012 with perfumers Olivier Polge, Dominique Ropion, and Anne Flipo behind its creation. This one opens with vanilla and praline, it transitions into pear and black currant. This perfume has been getting increasingly popular with more women wearing it, don’t let this deter you from trying out this beautiful sweet perfume with patchouli that gives it a special kick.
The performance of this one of the stronger ones in this list. The projection is heavy, it will project to anybody in a 6-foot radius as a result, it is perfect for a date setting with someone sitting close to you. You will never have to worry about the longevity of this perfume, it can last up to 16 hours on only 2 sprays. As a result, this perfume has everything you need for the perfect choice when deciding on what to wear for any occasion in the fall.
4. Beautiful Belle by Estee Lauder
This perfume is what a fall time wedding smells like. A fresh white bouquet of flowers with a hint of sweetness is what I would describe this perfume as. This perfume is the perfect fragrance for the office and just a crowd-pleasing fragrance that will never be disliked by anybody. I will admit, it is very generic and will not blow you away when you smell it.
The luxury smell and lasting power of this fragrance are what makes it special compared to all the other white floral perfumes. It will last you up to 18 hours without fail. The projection is perfect for the office and stays close to the skin, but it has the ability to be a powerful and strong fragrance with enough sprays.
3. Velvet Orchid by Tom Ford
The king of cold weather fragrances is Tom Ford. He has put together a collection of some of the best fragrances to use in cold weather. The use of notes such as rum, honey, and suede is unlike any other perfume brand out there. Velvet Orchid is a fragrance that came out in 2016 and has been one of my all-time favorite fall perfumes since. The rum and black orchid make this my favorite from the orchid line of fragrances that he has put out.’
The scent is creamy, sweet, with a note of rum that walks the line perfectly without making it too overbearing. It is one of the most feminine and clean perfumes that has come from Tom Ford making this a perfect option for the fall and winter seasons.
As usual, the performance of a Tom Ford fragrance is better than any other brand out there. The longevity will last you over 16 hours minimum no matter the circumstances. The projection is something that needs to be controlled and decided what best fits your personality and vibe you want to give off.
2. Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel
This perfume is for a very classy woman. For the women who are thriving in her life. Notes of patchouli, rose, citrus, and vetiver making this a combination of everything good in perfumes.
This fragrance has been complemented about a million times in the past two decades. I think its track record speaks for itself and there isn’t much hyping up I can do that hasn’t been already said by millions of women. Chanel has been a superpower in the perfume game for the longest time and will continue to be one.
The performance is some powerful stuff that blows away the rest of the list prior. It will need you to tweak the number of sprays to get it to be just enough to get attention but not too much that it blows people away. I’ve found the perfect number is only 2 sprays for the perfect amount of projection that you want.
1. Twilly D’Hermes by Hermes
This is one of the rare perfume that is almost specifically made for the fall season. It has all the components of a perfect fall perfume. The floral, wood, and ginger notes working together for a natural and incredible smelling aroma. The projection is just in the middle between too strong and too light. The longevity that lasts you over 12 hours of fragrance that will have people stop to compliment you.
The great divide on this perfume is if the ginger note is good or not. Some people have claimed it smells like fake ginger and some have claimed they love the note a lot. Decide for yourself and give it a test sniff when you see it in stores. I personally think ginger is a different and awesome addition to this perfume. It gives a spicy/warm aroma that just gives you a good feeling whenever you smell it.
