Fragrances containing this sweet powdery
bottom note (an extract of tree resins) make ideal day-to-night scents, perfumer Sherri Sebastian tells Us. "It's warm and sexy without being too heavy." One spritz is enough, since amber lingers on skin.
Red Currant & Pommegranate
If you liked spring's green apple and pear notes,
try tart red fruits this fall. "They're just as vibrant and fun," says Sebastian. To keep the fruity scent light, apply to the inside of the elbows instead
of neck and wrists.
Chocolate & Honey
"These gourmand notes are a great alternative to vanilla-based perfumes," Sebastian tells Us. Don't want to smell too sugary-sweet? Go for one that has fruity top notes too. "They'll be more fresh
and modern," she says.
"Rose notes are versatile, classic and smell beautiful in any combination," says Sebastian of fall's favorite soft floral. To make the floral scent
last, apply an unscented lotion first. "Scents hold longer on moisturized skin," she says.
