Saying goodbye to carefree summer days is bittersweet, but there’s joy to be found in thick knits, hot beverages and crisp breezes. Above all, fall is the perfect time to start fresh and try something new, whether it be a fresh hairstyle or a scent that feels like a warm embrace when you spritz it on. Here, eight cozy fall fragrances we can’t get enough of.
Maison Margiela Replica Autumn Vibes Eau de Toilette
You’re hiking up Mont-Royal wrapped up in your favourite scarf, leaves crunching under your feet. Quick: What does this smell like? Inspired by such a walk through the streets of Montreal, Autumn Vibes is the latest addition to Maison Margiela’s Replica collection. This musky juice bottles up the essence of a crisp fall day with a mix of woodsy cedar and earthy moss, plus hints of spicy nutmeg, pink pepper and cardamom.

Oribe Desertland Eau de Parfum
Oribe is known for its products’ addictive smell, bottled for the first time in 2014 with the launch of Côte d’Azur. Now, the luxe haircare brand is re-releasing its signature scent, along with two others: Valley of Flowers and Desertland. With earthy notes of juniper berry, pine, desert wildflowers and cedarwood, the latter is a crisp and complex concoction that slowly reveals its earthy, woody base.
