9 New Fall 2020 Fragrances To Switch Up Your Seasonal Scent

From luxe classics like Marc Jacobs to indie newcomers like Ellis Brooklyn.

While most beauty products can (and should) be used year 'round despite how they may be marketed, fragrance is the one category that is worth a seasonal switch-up. Especially as we slip into fall — the season with arguably the most olfactory sensations — brands are offering deeper notes to help you lean into the moment.

Whether you prefer crisp florals or deep, woody notes, there is something for everyone amidst the latest fragrance launches of Fall 2020. Click through to see some of the highlights, from Gucci to Heretic.

The latest from Ellis Brooklyn is one of its most unique yet. Minimal by design, this clean, woody scent features notes of cedarwood and ambergris that can be worn alone or blended with another fragrance to enhance your favorite scents.

If you were a fan of Daisy by Marc Jacobs, Perfect is an evolution of that same youthful, fresh floral profile — this time with calming, smooth notes of almond milk, cedarwood, and cashmeran.

To be clear, this is not the generic vanilla bean lotion smell of your middle school years. Heretic’s Dirty Vanilla leans heavily into the “dirty,” singling out smokey notes of rich amber, creamy sandalwood, and spicy coriander.

This whimsical, rich, and floral scent offers a twist on the brand’s signature Bloom Eau de Parfum with creamy tuberose, jasmine sambac for a bolder experience. The scent also features notes of smooth sandalwood and hints of musk.

Let the scent of the newest Henry Rose addition welcome in the fall, with clean, crisp green apple and watery top notes rounded out with notes of sheer white woods and sandalwood. And as with all fragrances from the brand, every ingredient in the SMYTH scent was vetted against the strictest standards, so you won’t have to make any compromises.

A new luxe fragrance from Maison Valentino, VOCE VIVA leans into femininity with a booming floral body enhanced by a hint of unexpected crystal moss accord. Top notes of Italian bergamot essence and Mandarin essence are met with smooth notes of vanilla and tonka bean to round the fragrance out.

A new floral scent from Armani, My Way Eau de Parfum was formulated with consciously sourced ingredients to enhance its floral base of tuberose and jasmine with woody and earthy notes of bergamot, cedarwood, and white musk.

While designed for men, this unexpected floral fragrance from Maison Francis Kurkdjian will become an easy favorite for anyone who gravitates towards clean, deeply woody scents. L’Homme AÌ la rose pairs fresh green top notes with grapefruit accord, along with rosy, woody middle notes, and woody amber base notes to enhance the sensual blend.

Ariana Grande's long awaited latest fragrance launch is a powerful blend of floral and woody musk notes — from fig and warm salted caramel to lavender essence and smooth sandalwood.
