Looking after the fragrance offering means that I genuinely look forward to the arrival of autumn as there are always a handful of exciting new perfumes. This year, there’s not only a smattering of exquisite launches to explore, but two NEW brands joining the Space NK family.
Both Atelier Cologne and Maison Margiela Replica take a unique approach to scent and I can guarantee you’ll find the fragrance for you in their line-ups. To give you a helping hand, here are the scents the buying team are loving right now…
If You’re Longing For Some Sunshine
Two spritzes of this zesty cologne will have you reminiscing about those long, lazy summer days. Sun-drenched blood orange coupled with the warmth of sandalwood evokes that relaxed feeling of the sun on your back and cocktail in your hand. Sit back, close your eyes and enjoy that feeling.
If You’re Hunkering Down Into Autumn
Striking the balance between smoky and spicy notes, this fragrance gives you all the log fire and cosy knitwear feels without being overly heavy. If Jazz Club is often viewed as the star of the Replica family, then By The Fireplace is the unsung hero. Catch a whiff and it’ll be the only scent you wear until March arrives.
If You’re Channelling A Positive Mindset
There is something incredibly uplifting about a fruity, floral scent and this clever play on aromas proves that florals aren’t just for spring. With just the right amount of musk and pink peppercorn, this hibiscus and iris bodied scent feels just as appropriate to wear now as it was in the warmer months.
If You’re Craving Those Weekend Vibes
With vetiver, a hint of incense and a smattering of patchouli, this scent is effortless to wear. Some might even say it’s easy like a Sunday morning. It’s fresh, it’s laid back and it’s become a firm favourite in the buying department.
If You’re Looking For Understated Elegance
Crisp, clean and fresh are the three words we would use to describe this scent. Vetiver and bergamot are delicately intertwined with patchouli to create an easy going yet sophisticated scent. What we love most though is that this fragrance can be worn alone or layered under your signature scent. However you choose to wear it, this is a must-have for any fragrance wardrobe.
If You’re Going For A Chic But Cosy Feel
Looking for the fragrance equivalent of your soft cashmere jumper and go-to jeans? This smooth blend of leather, cardamon and amber will be just the ticket. While you’re immediately enveloped in warmth, there is a refreshing fruitiness in the dry down.
