Though there is much to love about fall, some of my favorite things are the smells. Dried leaves on the ground, smoke from a chimney, a freshly baked apple or pumpkin pie.

Other than changing up your wardrobe, one of the other great parts of a change in season, is the chance to switch up your fragrance. Just like dressing in seasonal fabrics, your fragrance should match the season as well. Fragrance is an accessory and it’s always the final detail I pay attention to after getting dressed before having my morning coffee and heading out the door.
