Winter is speeding around the corner at an alarming rate, and what better way to set the mood of the season than to indulge in a new fragrance for the changing of the elements. Woody, smoky, sensual, musky. These are the scent memories that are locked away, evoking moments curled under a blanket, swathed in a wool coat, crumpled by a fire waiting on a hot drink. With autumn preparing us for what's to come, we're indulging in such scents a little early. Here, we round up our favourite scents for autumn.
