Autumn arrives with a flutter of crimson, brisk sunsets and the crisp crunch of leaves underfoot. Then, there’s the less poetic entrance of all things pumpkin spice. It’s popular for a reason, but there’s so much more to the fragrances of fall. Scentsy’s fragrance experts share what gives the quintessential fragrances staying power and what’s fresh this season.
What are the classic fall fragrances, and why do they remain so popular?
People look forward to fall as a time of change — breaking jeans and sweaters out of the closet, kids heading back to school, fall foliage bursting into stunning colors, and the holiday countdown starting. Many consider it pumpkin spice season, and in many ways it is. But there is more than meets the nose in a latte cup. A few tried-and-true Scentsy fall fragrances include notes of apples, cranberries, woods and florals. Check out our First Day of Fall, Cider Mill, Scarlet Sunflower and, yes, Pumpkin Roll scents.
What are the latest trends in fragrance for fall 2023?
Natural scents are growing in popularity in the fragrance world, across both luxury and home fragrance brands. For fall, this could mean pine and other woodsy notes intertwined with traditional fall fragrance favorites like spice or fruity notes. Some new additions to Scentsy’s Fall/Winter 2023 Catalog that pair these notes together include Midnight Mahogany, Palo Santo & Cinnamon and Red Currant Wreath.
How does Scentsy choose elements for fall fragrance?
We work very hard to stay current with trends, find gaps in our fragrance library and listen to our Consultants and customers! We’re always looking at fresh, and maybe slightly unexpected, ways to use favorite fall fragrance notes. Citrus notes like blood orange are often associated with summer fragrances, but when combined with classic spicy notes, they produce a beautifully sweet and refreshing fall fragrance. Add some orange to your fall with Sips of Cider or Fall Feelin’.
Speaking of the unexpected, what are some fall fragrances that might surprise people?
In Scentsy’s Fall/Winter 2023 Catalog, we’ve added a new fragrance called Golden Garland, which falls in the fresh fragrance family. While the smell of forest pine needles is decidedly fall, the other notes add a surprising twist to this fragrance. With hints of marigold petals, sparkling orange and a touch of golden musk, this fragrance weaves an impressive variety of scents into one refreshing bar.
What is new and exciting in fall fragrance?
The emergence of smoky notes is a remarkable new trend. And that makes sense from a scent memory and nostalgia point of view. Smoke evokes cherished time spent with family and friends around fire pits and in campgrounds. A great example of a Scentsy fragrance with that note is Around the Campfire, which continues to grow in popularity.
