Searching for a new signature scent this season? Here are the new perfume launches to know

The autumn breeze begins to roll in, bringing with it notes of sandalwood, amber and patchouli. The beginning of the cooler months are more than just a reminder that holidays are well and truly over, but a time for fragrance lovers to introduce a plethora of newness into their rotation as Maisons typically launch fragrances later in the year. Whether you favour comforting cedarwood or revitalising citrus notes, these are the perfume launches that have captured our attention this month.

J’Adore L’Or, Dior Beauty

“Respect tradition and dare to be bold.” This was the mantra — uttered by Christian Dior — that guided Francis Kurkdjian as he embarked on an olfactory journey to reimagine Dior’s J’adore fragrance. The director of Dior fragrance creation stripped the beloved J’adore scent down to its essence, refining its floral notes to produce an intensely concentrated version. J’adore l’Or balances its predecessor’s feminine charm — a bouquet of rose, lily of the valley, jasmine and violet — with a sunkissed sensuality, the iconic vessel appearing to be filled with liquid gold in homage to the Maison’s adoration of the hue.

Hermès Un Jardin À Cynthère, Hermès

The seventh chapter in Hermès’s Parfums Jardins story is an ode to Greece. Recreating her Hellenic adventures through scent, Hermès perfumer Christine Nagel combines olive wood, pistachio and notes of golden grasses into a warm and sensual fragrance. Shop now

Tobacco Honey, Guerlain L’Art & La Matière Collection

Guerlain’s L’Art & La Matière Collection is a masterclass in haute parfumerie, its array of exclusive olfactory offerings crafted by Guerlain’s perfumers. The latest addition pays tribute to the unsung hero of the perfumery world: tobacco. The smokey, mysterious accord is rounded out by decadent honey – a staple ingredient throughout the Maison’s skincare creations and a symbol of its commitment to sustainability –  and unfolds into a cloud of vanilla, sesame, clove and oud wood.

White Tea Eau Fraiche Eau de Toilette, Elizabeth Arden

Autumn fragrances typically are on the heavier side to complement cooler climes and crackling fireplaces. However, for those of us escaping to winter sunshine (or living in the forever-sunny Middle East) fresh fragrances are a constant in our rotation. This bright remake of the brand’s well-loved scent is reinvigorated with blood orange, lily of the valley and sea breeze accord, making it perfect for beachside walks. Shop now

Sandal Ruby, Carolina Herrera Beauty

Inspired by both a red dress gifted to Carolina Herrera by her mother on her 18th birthday and a ruby ring given to her by her father, Sandal Ruby is an ode to the hue. “Red has always been part of my creations. It exudes a daring and mysterious charisma,” says Carolina Herrera. A combination of uplifting tuberose petals, feminine white flowers and sensual sandalwood and cedarwood, the bespoke spirit of Sandal Ruby alludes to Middle Eastern fragrance-layering practices.

Wild Mint & Lavandin, Molton Brown

Simultaneously soothing and revitalising, Molton Brown’s latest Eau de Parfum is an earthy fragrance marrying sandalwood, basil, mint and lavandin – lavender’s more potent cousin. Evoking visions of nature walks alongside babbling brooks, the collection is in-keeping with the sustainable process behind its creation, where ingredients are sustainably sourced and bottles are made from 50% recycled plastic.

Idôle Now, Lancôme

Lancôme reimagines its 2019 icon for 2023, ramping up its original infusions – rose, Malaysian orchid and vanilla – and combining them with the freshness of pear accord and woody patchouli. The fragrance was created by three female perfumers and acts as an ode to the multi-faceted nature of femininity. Shop now

Aqua Allegoria Forte Oud Yuzu, Guerlain

Optimistic yuzu slices through woody notes like sunrise through a dense forest, infusing brightness into a combination of cedar, amber and oud and offering an unexpected yet welcome surprise. Guerlain’s Aqua Allegoria collection pays tribute to wonders of the world and reiterates the Maison’s commitment to sustainability through recycled glass bottles, 90% natural ingredients and refillable vessels.
