Down-to-Earth Perfumes Perfect for Fall
It’s time to update your fall fragrance wardrobe with a lineup of ultra-feminine fragrances that are grounded with woody base notes. One of this year’s biggest perfume trends is the rise of the feminine fragrance. It seems the preference for unisex scents are falling out of favor and giving way to a whole new olfactory experience: floral (and sometimes fruity) top and middle notes paired with a strong base in the form of woody tones like cedar and sandalwood. The result? A light and intoxicating perfume with a warm finish that makes it prime for wearing all season long.
