As much as I love summer the most, there’s something about the onset of fall that’s undeniably exciting. That back-to-school feeling really never leaves us even after we’ve left our school days – while the new textbooks and class schedules are gone, that feeling of excitement remains and (for me at least!) gets channeled into obsessions over fall fashion instead. As someone who never feels like an outfit’s complete until I’ve spritzed my current favourite scent, I always find myself looking into a new fragrance around this time of year too, a hunt that Canadian-born retailer Hudson’s Bay and thebay.com makes such an easy, fun experience! Click through to learn more & to discover some scents I’m excited for this season!
I don’t know about you guys, but while I have a few signature scents, I tend to always make my scent selection based off of what I’m wearing. Wrapped up in cozy knits and cable knit sweaters? I’ll likely reach for GUCCI Bamboo, an earthy yet fresh scent that reminds me of crisp fall days. If I’m running through the city in something ‘70s inspired (complete with a trench thanks to Vancouver’s notoriously wet weather), I would pay homage to the decade (and the weather) with My Burberry Eau de Toilette, which captures a fresh garden just after the rain.
From I AM JUICY to Kate Spade LIVE COLOR FULLY to Michael Kors’ Gold Collection, there are so many perfect options to suit my fall style, whether I’m going for cozy or sleek minimalism.
I’ve undoubtedly been wearing Givenchy’s Dahlia Divin Eau de Toilette obsessively though, even now in the summer! Its delicate floral fragrance is tempered with a woodiness that works so well as we transition into the season, and I find its blend of femme-with-an-edge suits my personal aesthetic perfectly. A new signature for sure.
Whatever mood or style you’re excited for this fall, Hudson’s Bay and TheBay.com has a fragrance to match it and its selection is really unparalleled! If you’ve tried a scent before then its online shop is the perfect place for you, but personally, I love going in-store and making it all a bit of an experience. Try the fragrances on your skin (ensuring you’re not wearing anything before you head in) and wear it while as you browse through the rest of the store (I usually just head straight up to The Room!). I always find after about 20 minutes I’ll know right away if this fragrance is the one (or more accurately, one of the ones since I love so many fragrances!) and how it’s going to blend into my style.
What about you? Do you revamp your scents as you head into fall and if so, which ones are you excited for? Tell me in the comments below!
A big thank you to The Bay for partnering with me for this post.
