(Never give up! LOL!)

 Really though, natural perfume and fall just go together. The woods! The spices! The moss!

I know that around here, everyone's favorite fall fragrance is Cardigan, but if you're looking for something different, there are so many beautiful and unique options. 

Here are my favorites: 

No. 1 

This is the first fragrance I designed that wasn't just a simple, four-note blend meant to go in a deodorant, and I still think it's one of my favorites. It's strong, rich, spicy, and mysterious, with notes of pine, jasmine, cardamom, clove, amber, and oakmoss. 

No. 4. 

This one is a smoky, herbal option, with sage, pinyon wood, clove, pink lotus, lavender, with an incense-y amber-y base. I think it smells like a bright, clear fall day in New Mexico.

No. 5

A cozy, creamy floral, with notes of rose, almond, cardamom, and tobacco. If you want something that's lovely and sweet, this is the one to try. The ruby red grapefruit and lemon top notes lend a clean, fresh feeling!

No. 8 

A moody, rainy day kind of smell, with sweet black spruce, refreshing bay laurel, lots of lavender, and a hint of cinnamon. This one is what forest bathing smells like to me. 

No. 10 

With smoked orange peel, clove, rosewood, oakmoss, and a hint of sweet ylang ylang, this one will take you through fall and right into Christmas. 

Of course, there's also the DIY option! 

I'm so excited to share my single note fragrances with you. They're a great way to get creative and change up your scent seasonally. You can layer as many together as you like, or wear them alone! 

How to layer:

I'm just kidding.

There are no rules!

I like to spray the strongest, or base note, option first, then mist the lighter scents on top. But you can do it however you like. The whole point of layering fragrances is to get creative, change it up, layer, deconstruct, and repeat. 

Here are a few of my favorite perfume layering combinations for fall: 

amber and rose 

amber, rose, and sandalwood

amber, rose, sandalwood, and cream! 

amber and cream

cream and sandalwood 

cream and rose 

(do you see where I'm going with this? NO RULES!)

lavender and cedar 

rose and cedar

lavender and cream 

lavender and cream and sandalwood 

cedar and tea 

tea and cream 

all three of those together... 

The possibilities are endless. 

 But enough reading. The best way to know if a scent is right for you is to try it on, so scroll down to order some $5 samples. Or, try a new four-perfume sample pack for $18!

Happy Fall, 

Stefanie
